The Beauty Edition: Birchbox June 15 

I was so pleased with my first Birchbox that it gave me the idea to just blog about it monthly, there is always something to rave about in the box. Even if you already have the subscription not all boxes are the same, the products are tailored to you and they pick them from a questionnaire you fill out when you sign up. Whether you have the subscription or not if you’re anything like me it’s always nice to have a snoop! This month you could pick your own design which i was so excited about, i really thought that was a nice touch. Naturally i went for…

The Interior Edition: Yankee Candles 

I’m about to reveal a secret obsession of mine, something that a third of my wages is spent on each month, and that’s… candles! There is just something about Yankee Candle scents that keep me addicted, i think my mum is a huge influence for this, she recently took out a seasonal delivery subscription with QVC – jealous much! Yankee always have new fragrance themes out and their most recent, Cafe Culture, caught my eye immediately. Three new foodie fragrances have been released, is it too obvious that the sweet treat scents are my favourite? I picked up Pain Au Raisin, a gorgeous buttery vanilla smell with hints of cinnamon.…

The Fashion Edition: Alphabet Bags Sale Alert

  I have posted about Alphabet Bags before when i first started up my blog. I just love the brand, run by husband and wife sharing a passion of typography and slogans that lead to creating lovely printed accessories. The items that they sell are so affordable and just brilliant quality, i get so many compliments on the slogan clutch bag i treated myself to last year (take a peek at my previous purchase here). The reason behind another post on the brand is that i wanted to share with you the seconds sale that they currently have running. I follow Alphabet Bags on Instagram and a bargain alert post caught…

The Food Edition: One Pot Prawn Thai Soup

Big one pot dishes are probably my favourite. Simple, quick cooking that doesn’t require a lot of technique but tastes great and the best part is that you’re left with a big batch for lunch the next day. I absolutely love Thai inspired flavours, this dish would be the perfect replacement for a Friday night take away! The recipe is by the wonderful Madeleine Shaw although i have tweaked it a little (i have basically have thrown in some extra veggie goodness). What you will need: cooking Oil 2 carrots 400ml can of coconut milk 200ml of vegetable stock 1 red chilli bunch of fresh corriander (optional,…

The Fashion Edition: Topshop Tassles 

Details: Top – Topshop Jeans – Topshop  Sliders – Primark Handbag – Pull & bear from ASOS  I’m all for a chic Parisian inspired look just grab a Breton t-shirt, pair it with skinny jeans, add a classic red lip and voilà you have a super stylish outfit with minimal effort. I’m partial to a stripe (wardrobe is full of em’) they can really turn a casual outfit into a statement one (hair roots are optional). Crochet is also going to be super big this summer and as Vogue recently claimed ‘much like florals’ and my top from Topshop is the perfect mix of both. Stripes, crotchet and tassels…
