Embroidered George Flat Shoes

Hey All

Lately I've been trying to save money as I'm learning to drive and aiming to buy a house early next year which has meant less shopping. The embroidered trend is one I've been admiring from a far, I've been loving all the demin with embroidery but so far have resisited.

That was until I popped into my local asda and saw these beauties for a bargain £14!!

Embroidered George Flat Shoes

As a tall girl (with an OH the same size as me!) pretty flats are always something I'm searching for, and when I saw these at a bargain price I couldn't resist!

I love the straps so they stay on the feet easily and they are comfy, they are suede material with the embroidery detail to the toes area, also a bonus no toe cleavage (I'm not a fan of shoes that finish too low!)


Embroidered George Flat Shoes

I've been loving pairing them with Jeans for a night out or dinner but they also go great with dresses, I did wonder if they'd scuff easily, I'm not known for my care when it comes to shoes, I'm very clumsy, but so far so good! PS thanks Jamie's Italian for the fantastic floor.

Have you embraced the embroidery trend? Are these something you'd go for, at the price I think they're an amazing way to embrace fashion trends. On a side note Asda have a selection of dolly shoes with padded soles, yes you heard a padded soles, they feel like slippers and are even more of a bargain at £6 a pair!!! I have two pairs of these ones already (link here for those and here's the link for the embroidered one's!)

Love M

Storybook Cosmetics Wand Brushes

Hey All

If you didn't know L and I are HUGE harry potter fans (my bunnies are even named after characters - Harry Hopper and Dumbledore) we've read the books multiple times and watched the films countless times. We've been on the studio tour a few times too and we're planning another trip this year. You can see when we went on The Dark Arts tour here. When we discovered the company Storybook Cosmetics we both spent the next few weeks tagging each other in every post as we knew we'd both want all the products!! We've both got the eyeshadow palette on pre-order so I'm sure you'll be seeing lots of that! The quill and liner set is what I've got my eye on next!

Bolsius Aromatic Wax Burner and Melts


Hi all!

It's going to be a tough week after a 4 day weekend but hopefully we're not all feeling too bad going back to work today...maybe you've even got some chocolate left to take to work with you??

Recently we were sent a wax burner and wax melts from Bolsius, L hadn't tried wax melts before so so couldn't wait to test them out and M has had a few but not many so is always excited to try new ones!

Dirty Martini Cardiff's Choctails


Hello there!

We couldn't help but notice Dirty Martini had a special Easter menu available so we absolutely had to go and try out their Choctails. We are already huge fans of their chocolate martini and I can't tell you how many we've had before - we often go out for a meal and stop there for one as our dessert!

However for Easter they also brought out two additional cocktails to make the trio of choctails. So as a start to the Easter weekend we went to try them out!

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel


Morning all!

The last few weeks I've been using some new skincare to get my skin in better shape for the summer. I don't currently have any plans to go away anywhere but having skin that doesn't require any make up or only light make up makes you feel a lot more free doesn't it?

My latest purchase has been from the Body Shop and their range called the Drops of Youth.

Morning all!

We were super lucky last week and were invbited to try out the new menu at The Stable. If you haven't tried this place yet you absolutely have to!

We've been a few times before and sampled the pizzas which we thoroughly enjoyed, but this time they have a new menu with many extras I hadn't noticed before...including.....Nutella pizza. Actual Nutella on a pizza! Who wouldn't want to try that out?!

But let's talk savoury first.

Antipodes Rejoice Light Day Cream


Hello there!

If you've read Mia's post on the Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream then you will know we were recently sent some products from Antipodes containing avocado. Everyone is totally obsessed with the stuff lately and it's not hard to understand why!

Avocados are renowned for containing a large number of healthy fats and are championed for a healthy diet for weight loss, shiny hair and of course good skin. But if you're applying it instead of eating it, is it worth it?
