Flavourly Box

Flavourly Box

I recently found a £10 off code for a Flavourly box, which make it £4.99 instead of its usual £14.99, and thought I would give it a try.

Having seen subscription boxes increase in variation over the years there are now boxes available to suit almost everyone. From beauty to sock, coffee to chocolate. They make the perfect gift if you don’t quite know what to buy somebody, and that is exactly what I plan to do in the future – everybody is getting a subscription to Flavourly!

My box arrived today and I am in total love. I actually think the price is very reasonable for the products included and I would be happy to continue my subscription as I enjoy cooking and trying new foods.

Philippe Starck Ghost Chair

Lakeland UK

Stylish homeware is a must and Lakeland UK have got their fingers right on the pulse of this. Offering modern and vintage inspired furniture at reasonable prices means that they are accessible to everyone – and I am in no doubt that they would appeal to everyone too!

I have been after a new chair for dressing table for some while; I currently have a stool which isn’t the most comfortable of things to do your make-up on! I wanted something a bit more substantial and most importantly comfy.

I loved the style of this chair as soon as I saw it; it is styled on the Philippe Starck for Kartell Louis Ghost Chair which has a price tag of £190, making the price tag of £70 (in the sale) for this one quite reasonable! I then had the difficult decision of narrowing down a colour! In the end I settled on the clear version as I thought it would easily suit any colour scheme or room location if I decide to relocate.

ROBERTS Revival DAB Radio

ROBERTS Revival Radios

The amazing summer weather instantly puts me in a good mood, and there is no better addition to that than some summer tunes! I like nothing better than lying on a sun lounger in the garden, cocktail in hand and one of my favourite radio stations playing in the background.

This has inspired me to make a purchase. I have actually been after a ROBERTS Revival DAB radio for as long as I can remember. I love the vintage style of them and the selection of colours that they are available in. I actually never really listened to the radio a few years ago but have recently found it a great addition when I am cooking or the house seems that little bit too quiet – we all love a little sing-a-long to ourselves!

The most difficult choice in all this is what colour or pattern to choose? There is such a great selection! I am currently only in rented accommodation too so would like to buy a colour that would continue to fit in with whatever colour scheme future houses have.

The price is what has been putting me off slightly as at between £159.95 – £199.95 these radios are an investment. But they are so beautifully made and they look so great that I think it would be a purchase worth making.

Here’s my favourite colours/patterns currently:

The Greyhound Brentwood Essex

The Greyhound Pub, Essex

At the weekend I went out for a family meal, to a pub called The Greyhound near Brentwood in Essex.

The Greyhound Brentwood Essex

Let’s start with the positives: the pub itself is gorgeous, located in the middle of no wear it is really quaint and pretty. It has a large beer garden to the rear and a fair amount of seating inside the pub itself.

Now on to the bad.

Essex Polo

Essex Polo 2013

Last weekend I spent my Sunday at the Duke of Essex Polo Grand Prix. I’ve never watched polo before, I have never been greatly in to sports in general, but I actually had a really good time and understood the rules and game (mostly!) by the end of the afternoon.

As with most events in Essex, the occasion meant an opportunity to glammed up! Although I did regret my decision to wear heels half way through when I was sinking in to the grass. There were some amazing outfits on show and many girls looked really gorgeous!
