Lucky Dip Club Subscription Box | April

Every month I look forward to opening my Lucky Dip Club subscription box; filled with a fun printed pair of socks, enamel pin and mini zine it really does brighten my day.

Naturally I was eagerly anticipating the April box, but when it arrived I was absolutely blown away by how perfect it was – and very befitting of the season ahead. The plant/grow theme is my favourite by far and I can’t wait to show you everything that’s inside this ‘gram-worthy box.

Biggleswade Antiques Fair & Haul

It has been awhile now since I had a nose around a vintage/antiques fair. The last event I attended was back in December- you can read about my visit to Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, Cambridge here.

Anyway, as I was scrolling through ‘what’s on St Neots’ lists online, I came across an event for an Antiques Fair being held a town over in Biggleswade. Not really knowing what to expect I figured I would give it a go – I’m so glad that we did as it was absolutely amazing!

Today I thought I would share with you a few of the wonderful pieces I picked up, as well as give you some info on the fair. It’s held monthly so is well worth a visit if you’re in the area!

Lush Cosmetics Valentines Day 2018 Haul

Nothing gets me more excited for the season ahead than a new Lush release, and the Valentines range is one I always highly anticipate because I never fail to fall in love with the products.

When Lush dropped its’ 2018 Valentines range as pre-release online I knew I had to grab some goodies straight away! So whilst the range isn’t officially in store until the 12th of this month, I already have a selection of bath bombs and bubble bars to share with you today – how exciting! (more…)

Lush Cosmetics Christmas Haul 2017

I have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Lush Christmas line since last year. Not only are the products super fun and festive but they are among some of my all time favourites. During the December months I take the opportunity to stock up on (and stash away) as many of my faves as possible to see me through the remainder of the year.

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you my small(ish) Lush Christmas haul and talk you through some of the must-haves this year!

My Christmas Wishlist

These days I spend far more time planning and buying gifts for others than I do thinking about what I’ll find in my own stocking. As you get older you tend to find more joy in the giving than you do in the receiving. That said it’s always fun to have a bit of a daydream and write a wishlist-  it’s like the modern day equivalent of circling your most wanted toys in the Argos catalogue.

Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, Cambridge

Vintage is quite often seen as the ‘in’ or ‘trendy’ thing these days. It’s become cool to dig through vinyl, re-purpose crazy printed shirts and deck yourself out in accessories from bygone eras.

I myself am a big fan of all things vintage and can easily see why others are so drawn to it. Asides from the ecological/recycle and re-use aspect of it all, vintage items are generally of a better quality and last much longer than their modern counterparts. Additionally, the design/style is better thought out and more unique than what is on the (mass-produced) market these days. After all, who wants a cheap, plastic-smelling bag that’s on every other persons arm when you could own a beautiful handmade number for a fraction of the cost?

Mini B&M Homeware Haul

If you weren’t aware that Gareth and I just recently bought our first house, then where have you been hiding?! It’s literally all I have been talking about for a month. Anyway, it’s been a week now and although we have lived together for coming up to three years, we are still finding ourselves needing bits and bobs around the house.

At the weekend we decided to pop in to B&M and pick up some bargains for the house. I thought I would share them with you in the form of a mini haul.

October 2017 – Monthly Favourites

October has been one of the busiest months of my life. Between moving house, working full-time and taking part in Blogtober, I’ve barely had the time to process it all. That said, it has been an exciting month – full of new and happy memories. As it is slowly coming to a close (I can hardly believe how quickly the month has passed!) I thought I would share my favourite things with you.

Moving House: A Homeware Haul

If you read my Moving House And New Beginnings  post, you will know that Gareth and I are moving in just a couple of weeks time. Ever since we put an offer in on the house we have been busy squirrelling away bits and pieces for our new home.

As we have been living together for two years we already have lots of stuff so don’t really need any of the basics. White goods are built in to our property also so there’s no need to splash out on any overly expensive purchases. But as this is our first house and we want to do things properly, we have decided upon some themes for each room and have been buying decorative pieces accordingly.

 

I thought I would share a few of the smaller bits we have collected so far and our “vision” for the house. I can’t wait to get in and make it ours!

Lush Halloween Haul

I love Halloween. Carefully constructing the perfect outfit, decorating the house, carving pumpkins and, of course, the Lush Halloween range all make this season super-exciting for me. So when I found out that the Lush website and the Oxford Street store were getting their Halloween stock a little earlier than usual, I felt so happy at the prospect of kicking off the season with a splash.

General release for this range is October 6th but that said, I work just two tube stops away from Oxford Circus so of course I was going to pop in for some early treats! Not only did the Oxford Street store have the full Halloween range, but it was blessed with the Christmas range too. An exciting time for me but not so much my purse! I did grab stuff from both ranges (of course) but I shall save the Christmas haul for when I’m feeling a little more festive!

Here’s what I got…
