I recently read a post by one of my good friends and fave bloggers Emmie from Carpe Diem Emmie all about fifteen of her favourite things. She took inspiration from an article in a magazine so I thought I’d take a bit of inspiration from her and share fifteen of my favourite things. Takeaway treat My ultimate takeaway treat has to be Domino’s pizza. I usually order the House Special Roast Chicken because it is literally what pizza dreams are made of but I always order the stuffed crust. Pizza with a normal crust is obviously delicious, but a stuffed crust just takes…

A few weeks ago the lovely Sam from Caketoppers got in touch with me. She asked whether I’d like to review her personalised cupcakes and, of course, I said yes. Who wouldn’t want to try some delicious cupcakes?! Caketoppers decorate cakes and cupcakes with personalised images, logos or messages. They’re perfect for almost any occasion including birthdays, anniversaries and corporate events. They deliver all over the UK and even provide next day delivery, depending what time you place your order. She asked me to send over my choice of image to go on top of the cakes. I thought all weekend about it…

I’m gonna be honest, I’ve never really been into charity shop shopping. I used to pop into one or two every now and then but I could never find anything decent. I couldn’t be bothered to trawl through the rubbish to find the hidden gems that I’d heard so much about. My friend Charlotte (from Discovering Charlotte and Shoestring Chic) absolutely loves charity shops. So a couple of weeks ago she introduced me and Kirstie (from Behind the Scent) to the world of charity shop shopping. LOROS have 28 shops across Leicestershire and Rutland but Charlotte showed us round the store on…
