It’s been a while since J and I really bothered with Valentine’s Day. When we first got together he surprised me with a trip to Disneyland Paris (which I’ve written about here) but it sort of all went downhill from there really! I think he peaked too soon and set an impossible standard to match up to 😂😂
The year after, I received some beautiful potted roses and we’ve also done the obligatory box of chocolates but after that, it pretty much dwindled down to getting a takeaway so I didn’t have to cook!!
If I’m being completely honest, I haven’t really felt festive at all this year. So far, I’ve watched 0 Christmas films, made 0 eggnogs, decorated 0 Christmas trees and sung at the top of my voice in the car to 0 Christmas songs. I’m not exactly Scrooge but it’s been really hard to get into the swing of it this year.
I love a good old pamper session, so I was delighted to be invited to the Uniquely Organic Eco Spa in Hove (at 40 Church Road), along with a few other bloggers to check out what they do and to sample one of the treatments for ourselves!
If you didn’t know already, there’s a Brighton Yankee Candle store in the Churchill Square shopping centre (next to Topshop) and I was kindly invited along last week to check out the new Elevation range which won’t be available until September.
Before we got our bookcases, I wasn’t able to have scented candles or wax melts burning away, mostly because we only had low surfaces (like our coffee table) and inevitably, Mr Bear would come along and stick his face right in the wax or the flame!!
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.
