Scilly Flowers

I just thought I would put together a quick post on some beautiful flowers I recently received through the post from Scilly Flowers.

Based on the Isles of Scilly these beautifully scented flowers are send directly to your house, through your letterbox, saving you the hassle of visiting a florist or store to get some flowers to brighten up your home!

Considering that these flowers are picked from the farm, travel by boat the mainland and then through the postal system they were so fresh and in perfect condition. You don’t have to worry about the quality with these!

Not only are the flowers lovely but they smell gorgeous and with prices for them starting from only £10.50 including postage you can afford to treat yourself to a bouquet or two!

Of course, you don’t have to just keep these to yourself as they would make a great gift for a friend or family member too.

I will most certainly be ordering from Scilly Flowers in the future!

 

Cable and Cotton

Cable and Cotton – “Glow” Lights

When I moved home I was looking of ways to accessorize and decorate my new room to make it feel more my own. I have always looked at pictures on Instagram and Pintrest of pictures of fairy lights and loved the ambience that they gave a room.

However previous purchases of fairy lights didn’t work out so well as they seemed to die almost as soon as you replaced a battery! So instead I looked for something different and came across Cable & Cotton on Twitter.

They have a range of fairy lights that are incased in various different coloured balls. You can choose a pre-selected collection or instead opt to create your own and personalise the colours of the balls yourself.

I really liked the Glow set (here) which retails at £22.95.

Cable and CottonOn arrival the set surprised me a little as I didn’t realise you had to “build” the lights yourself, however there was a full instruction sheet and the task wasn’t too difficult. I guess it helps to ensure that the lights aren’t damaged during transit too!

You simply pop a fairy light through each ball; pull tight to ensure they stay and you are ready to decorate your house!

Mio Destino Classic Crimson Vamp

Mio Destino – Classic Crimson Vamp Set

There is nothing like a new set of underwear to brighten your day. I will admit that I am a little bit of an underwear addict, perhaps it’s just the addiction to spending money that I have a problem with! I am constantly buying brand new sets as there are just too many beautiful collections to get my hands on.Whilst I have my favourite high-street stores for underwear purchasing I haven’t much looked in to the online world, but on Twitter recently I came across a new store called Mio Destino. Browsing their website and looking at their range of products I knew I had to get my hands on something!

But with so many beautiful bras and coordinates it was tricky to whittle my choices down. Finally I decided to take the plunge and selected the Mio Classic Crimson Vamp bra and short set. Retailing at £45 for the bra and £26.50 for the shorts this set is a little above the average high street price, but it is most certainly worth it.

Bras are something that I think you should spend a bit of money on. With the right support a woman can conquer the world… or something like that! But really, with a quality bra your outfits will look better and you will generally feel more comfortable.

Mio Destino Classic Crimson VampThis set from Mio Destino didn’t let me down either! It came beautifully packaged in tissue paper and a branded sticker to hold it all together. The bra and shorts are so well made and I really love the black and red colour combination. This would be the perfect underwear treat for your other half!

I sometimes find that short underwear is a little uncomfortable but these shorts are true to size and I wore them an entire day without experiencing any discomfort. A definite plus!

I am so impressed with this set that I am already starting a wishlist for my next purchase!

Lokum Istanbul Turkish Delight

Lokum Turkish Delight

If you’re looking for a unique gift or treat for yourself then this is certainly is! Usually it’s what you would receive from people who have been on holiday to turkey, but why just limit it to then?

Turkish delight is delicious and comes in a range of flavours, but what makes this turkish delight so special? Not only do Lokum Istanbul package is beautifully but these are the most wonderful tasting sweet treats I have ever had!

Retailing from just £10, for a selection in a super cute “fez” box, Lokum turkish delight would make the perfect gift for a friend or perhaps Mother’s Day. The box I sampled had a selection of different flavours in, each as lovely as the last. I also love that there is a little fork instrument included in the package – a really unique way to devour the sweets!

“Throughout the centuries, Turkish Delight has been an essential part of traditional cuisine. It became popular in Europe during the 18th Century when it was brought back to the UK and given the name by which we all know it now, Turkish Delight!

Lokum Istanbul has not only revisited the time honored traditional methods of producing Turkish Delight by mixing honey or fruit syrups with flour, but has brought Turkish Delight to a whole new international audience with exclusive flavors such as Lemon, Rose, Mandarin, Fig and Walnut, and Pistachio.”

You can purchase this gift box and others here.

Do you love turkish delight like me?

Mason Drinking Glasses

drinkstuff – Mason Jar Glasses

It’s a trend you have probably all seen on Twitter and Instagram: bars serving their drinks in jar glasses. It’s such a cute idea and I think it’s a really novel way to serve a glass of cold ice tea or perhaps a cocktail.

So when I found drinkstuff stocking these for the home I just had to get a set! These Mason Drinking Jar Glasses are high quality and certainly look/feel like they will last you a long time. They are large in size so will hold a lot (1 pint) – especially important when cocktails are involved!

What is unique about these is that they feature a handle too, which many others don’t, meaning that any ice in your drink won’t be being warmed up when your hands are around the glass.

I think a bunch of colourful straws really brightens them up too!

Mason Drinking Glasses

But whilst they are great for keeping in your kitchen, why just use them there? I love these glasses in my dressing room and use them to store everything from lipsticks to cotton pads. They hold lots and look great amongst the other clear glass accessories that I already have.

Mason Drinking Glasses

The glasses are priced at £9.99 for 4 or £34.99 for 24 which I think is really inexpensive for the quality. These will most certainly be getting a lot of use around my house!
