Happy chocolate milkshake day! I hope you don’t mind but I’m beginning the celebrations a tad early. It’s not actually chocolate milkshake day until Monday. But I thought I would get into the spirit of things by sharing with you my top ten chocolate milkshakes. I haven’t always been a big milkshake lover. In fact, my love for milkshakes only blossomed when I hit my teens which (despite how I feel) wasn’t that long ago. Some of my top milkshakes can be found all over the UK so don’t be upset if you don’t live in the East Midlands like…

This post was originally supposed to be a favourites post. However, favourites posts are usually more about belongings than experiences.

Well last week my prize from Ohh Deer was delivered so I thought I’d show you what I won. If you’ve seen any of my Papergang posts then you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of Ohh Deer.

If you’ve read my post about the #EastMidsMeetUp last weekend then you’ll be ahead of the game. We were lucky enough to get not just one, but two goody bags! One from Lush, and the other from Matalan. I briefly mentioned a couple of my favourite treats from the goody bags and linked to a couple of brands. However it was all too brief, so I thought why not write a whole post about them?!
