I love supporting local and independent businesses, so I was really excited when Joyfuel, a Worthing-based business got in touch, asking if I wanted to check out their products.
I’ve definitely heard of Pago juice before and I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen their distinctive green bottles in bars and cafes around the UK, but I’ve never really thought any more about them. Until now.
I wouldn’t have said I was obsessed with shoes or trainers, but while I was sorting out my wardrobe recently, I realised I owned a hell of a lot more pairs than I thought I did and some that I’d completely forgotten I even owned 😬😬 As it was obvious I wasn’t going to ever wear a lot of them again, I decided to get rid of a load; to charity, to the tip and on Depop!
A few months ago, Rosie, Katie and myself were discussing ideas on where to go after we’d had our fun day out at Wood’s in Worthing. We knew that we definitely wanted something food related and somewhere pretty for loads of cute outfit shots!!
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited along to check out a brand that was completely new to my radar; Higher Nature. The event was held at BozBoz Gallery in Brighton (near St Peter’s Church) which was the perfect setting to show off their products.
Ever since I was invited to the Lush event last year, it’s safe to say my opinion about Lush has definitely changed! I used to find there was too much choice, but now I know what I like and don’t like, I’m happy to spend a good half hour browsing for new products!
I was thrilled to get an invite to this year’s Lush event in Crawley; not only to get to see the new products coming out, but also to spend some time with some of my blogging faves; Katie, Charlie, Tania and Rosie 🙂
Last weekend, Rachael and I travelled up to London to check out Friends Fest! We’d had the tickets booked since March, so you can bet we were super excited. Well, I was, after a coffee and a Bagelman (sausage, mushroom and cheese!)
Back in the 90s, I was one of those children who, rather than scoffing chocolate and biscuits, always used to devour a packet of Polos pretty much every day, almost like there was no tomorrow. I always used to keep a packet either in my pocket or in a hand-me-down bag from my mum, which inevitably led to Polos falling out all over the place, getting all dirty with pocket fluff or breaking in the bottom of my bag 🙁
I was also one of those weird kids who used to suck their Polos until they were really, really thin, break a section off and pretend I had my lip pierced by using the POLO® as a lip ring!! Erm… Just me then, yeah?
I’m not going to lie, we’re a massive fan of gadgets in our house, if it makes our lives easier, we’re in! From lighting we can control from our phones (thanks IKEA) to using our Google Home to play music, get up to date with the latest news and commute times to work.
We also have a plethora of kitchen gadgets that we actually use frequently; the Nutribullet for those daily smoothies (yup, I’m still using this a year later), an air fryer for healthier cooking and an electric can opener.
It’s not really a secret that I’m a bit of a homebody. I much prefer pottering round the house of a weekend than being out in clubs or going to loud parties and feeling rubbish the next day!!
Saturday evenings are my absolute favourite because there’s no work the next day and I know that I don’t have to go anywhere; a bonus especially when it’s raining or cold outside 🙂
There’s nothing better than putting on the side lamp, cosying up on the sofa with J (under our massively super soft chocolate brown blanket) and chilling out watching TV or a film ♥
