Firstly, I want to say I’m super sorry that I’m a couple of months late posting this review. All I can say is that it was ridiculously bad planning on my part. That being said, it shouldn’t take away the excitement of the reveal, because who knows, this could be something you’ve not seen before, so I might be introducing you to something entirely new 🙂
I’m always up for an adventure and trying out something new; which is why a couple of Thursdays ago, on a beautifully sunny evening, I headed down to Hove Lagoon to spend an evening with the guys at Adventure Connections*. They’re a Brighton-based events management company that organise stag, hen and corporate events and they’d invited some local press and bloggers down for an evening of fun learning how to paddleboard and try out wakeboarding!
After reading Rosie’s recent post, “Coffee Table Books You Need In Your Life“, I realised that I don’t actually own any coffee table books. Mostly because we’ve only recently bought a coffee table, but it also kind of feels like a proper grown up thing to have in the house, and I wasn’t sure I was ready for that level of commitment to being an adult just yet.
Last month I tried out the chocolate fudge cake mix from Wright’s Baking (if you missed it, you can read about it here). This month I thought I’d try out the carrot cake mix they kindly sent me! I did want to make the next cake the weekend after I’d made the fudge cake, but I’m trying to be a little bit good about not eating too much cake at the moment. It’s bloody boring btw!
So remember I said in my Lush haul post that I hadn’t managed to get any of their Christmas bath bombs? And then I said I’d picked some up from Soapbombs and I was going to do a post on them … Well despite it being so close to February, I thought I’d share these absolutely stunning Christmas-themed bath bombs with you.
When I wrote my blog goals for 2017, I said that I wanted to stay more organised this year, as I found keeping a list of which posts were going out and when really helped me. (Yep, before I started writing them down I had absolutely no clue and often published loads of the same types of posts in a row. Which might work for some people but I love mixing my posts up a bit.)
Recently the old Bowlplex down at Brighton Marina underwent a bit of a transformation and has now become a shiny new Hollywood Bowl. Last Thursday they had a VIP launch night so Áine and I headed down for an evening of bowling, fun and food.
Back in November I wrote my first post about trying out some of the products from all the blogger goody bags I got last year! I figured it was a good way to actually remember to try all the lovely things I’d been given, rather than just keeping them in drawers out of the way!
Well since the first post, I’ve been rooting through my chests of drawers (Yes, chests. Plural. I have two chests of drawers full of products!) to find more products to try out. And I thought I’d share with you what I’ve been using for the last couple of months.
If you’ve been following me on here for a while, you’ll know I absolutely love baking. Oh and cake. And if you’re new to my blog, then hi, I’m Holly and I love baking and cake 😀 (although tbh, who doesn’t love cake. Am I right?)
But recently it seems I’ve completely and utterly lost my mojo 🙁 I used to make the lightest, spongiest cakes known to man and they tasted so damned delicious. But now all I seem to make are the heaviest brick-like cakes that do taste kinda good but are just so dense. And this makes me incredibly sad 🙁
It’s not exactly a big secret that I’ve only recently got into bath bombs. Mostly because I used to find going into stores too over-powering and I felt that by ordering online, you lost the choice of being able to smell the products first.
But now I’m all about that bath life, I’ve started amassing a quite large collection. Oops.
