AUTUMN ROUND UP

Again, I promised myself to make an effort to write these round up posts every month but can someone stop the world for a minute because my last one was in July!! How is that even possible? These past 4 months have been absolutely crazy, but I'm not going to bore you with that amount of photos so I'm sticking to the Autumn months in hope that once December has rolled round I can stay on top of these posts because I enjoy them, and you all seem to comment saying you do too! As always if you want to check out my previous round up post, I will leave the link here.

Firstly I picked up this amazing dresser for £20 (ish), I went to London for some training and got to try some of the most amazing cocktails at one of our sites. Go check them out here if you're in the Waterloo area because their food and drinks are insane!! Then of course when I returned to work I had to tuck into one of our beautiful pizzas.. 

Next up, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Merryhide event, a H&M opened in our town and they have the most unreal lighting ever!! I was contacted by GoCustomized to review one of their cases and picked up this "Be Happy" case. And finnnnnally, I attended the Wren Kitchen Event in Barton and the bottom three images are of my outfit, some baking we tried and of course Linda Barker who is a total babe! I vlogged a little bit for the first time ever too which was super exciting so I'll link that here if you fancied checking it out - please be nice!

#WRENFAMILYFAVOURITES W/ LINDA BARKER

I'm going through one of those phases at the minute, where I feel like I'm not in control of anything that's going on in my life and time is going by so fast that I'm getting left behind and just working my bum off constantly. So it came as a total delight when I was then invited to the #WrenFamilyFavourites event with a live cook off with Linda Barker! What better way to take my mind off things than to have the evening off work with a group of some of the most genuine bloggers I know, surrounded by cakes and sweet treats?

Of course I responded with a big, fat yes to the invite and took myself along armed with my camera to see what Wren Kitchens have been designing and as you can imagine - the interior designer inside of me was squeeling all night long.

I didn't manage to get many shots as I was too busy falling in love with tiles and mince pies but hopefully you can get the gist of the night and start planning your dream kitchen like me!







I'd like to say a huge thank you to the girls at Branded 3 who hosted the event and also to Linda for being so lovely and down to Earth. I also vlogged some of the night for the first time ever which I'll attach a link to the video here if you want to go check it out, but please have patience as I'm new to this whole YouTube lark.

GOCUSTOMIZED


After dropping my iPhone 6 a few months ago, I became super paranoid about ever smashing the screen again. When did phones become to expensive to repair!? So I was obviously very excited when GoCustomized got in touch with me and wanted to send me one of their cases to try.

You can either personalize your own case by uploading an image or you can use one of their popular designs that are pre-loaded onto the website. I opted to upload my own image which was one I found online a few weeks ago and the print has transferred perfectly! I expected the text to have pixelated a bit but it's exactly the same as the image I uploaded and it only took a couple of days to arrive which was fantastic considering GoCustomized are based in The Netherlands and Belgium. The only downside to the case is that compared to the Apple one I have at the moment it is really slippy which makes me super nervous about balancing it on the arm of the sofa or even holding it in my accident prone hands! Make sure you check out their Instagram page for updates on new designs and inspiration for designs of your own.

GIVING BACK WITH LUXÊMME

Today's post is a little different from the usual ones you might see around this time of year, simply because I'm sure we can all relate to feeling the pressure when it comes to buying fantastic gifts for our loved ones even if we maybe cant afford to do so. That's where Luxemme want to help out, they are giving all of my readers and followers the chance to receive £15 worth of free Christmas vouchers, simply by following them on social media and clicking on this link here. The vouchers can be personalized to whoever you wish to give them to, and can be used on any purchase via their website.

They have a tonne of beautiful pieces to chose from, making them ideal for New Years parties, or even just as a little treat. I personally love their array of jumpsuits - they're perfect for Autumn/Winter and they have an awesome range, including culotte and wide legged ones for a more casual style, but also smart and tailored ones for a more corporate look. I'm also a huge fan of their dresses, and I already have my eye on a couple that I think will be perfect for upcoming parties! 


Will you be claiming your vouchers this year?

FESTIVE HOMEWARES

This is going to be a super cozy, festive themed post so go grab a cup of tea and your slippers before you start reading! Now, I can't be the only one that at this time of year starts burning a tonne more candles, buying more blankets and spending my days off in my pyjamas scrolling through festive homeware and Christmas gift guides. Therefore, It's no secret that I love changing my flat throughout the seasons to keep up with bright colours in Spring and Summer and cozy details in Autumn/Winter, so I thought I'd share with you my favourite festive and Christmassy home accessories and decorations this year from the top brands including House of Fraser, H&M and Next.



Tis' The Season Cushion, Sandalwood & Amber diffuser, Black Tree Decorations, Star Floor Lamp, Reindeer Tealight Holder, Bronze Acorn Decorations.

I am obsessed with copper and silver for the Festive Period when it comes to decorating, especially with a tonne of fairy lights it just sets the perfect scene. The H&M silver tree decorations and the House of Fraser copper acorns will look gorgeous this year on a lightly dusted Christmas Tree, surrounded by beautiful throws and this adorable Tis' The Season cushion! I'm so excited to pick some of these pieces up and really go to town on my decorating this year - who says Christmas living alone can't be glam?

Go see what else my favourite brands are offering here, here and here!

MADE X UNBOXED


A few months back, I was contacted by the amazingly talented people at Made.com and asked if I, yes me (!) - wanted to try out some of their home ware. Now if any of you know me personally, you'll know that the little interior designer wannabe inside of me did a few hundred thousand cartwheels at the thought of collaborating with such an amazing home ware company so of course I jumped at the chance.

I picked out this amazing sofa bed which has already had its fair share of use from friends and family, (no doubt after a few too many glasses of wine) and everyone has complimented on how comfy it is. Whats even better, is that when it's not being used as a bed it fits in perfectly with the rest of my style and colour theme. A few months down the line and Made.com sent a photographer round who managed to get some awesome shots of the little place I call home, (thanks Sam if you're reading) and I'm now featured on the Made X Unboxed page on their website.

I highly suggest you go and check our some of the stuff on Made.com especially if you've recently moved house or even if you just fancy treating yourself. Everything is really affordable and so well made that I can't wait to buy more additions for my flat. Aaaaand finally, if you sign up to their newsletter you also get a £10 off voucher - who doesn't love a discount?
