So I’ve noticed that Sam regularly puts food favourites in and I’ve no idea why I don’t… I love food! Anyway, May was a good month for me finding new chocolate obsessions. Firstly, the white chocolate Twix is simply the dream! Dare I say that I probably love it more than the milk chocolate one. Also anyone else remember Flipz? I love that they are back on a revival at the moment. Chocolate covered salted pretzels are really the dream. The dark chocolate ones are fab but the white chocolate fudge ones are probably my favourite, but I ate them before I could take this photo. There’s definitely a white chocolate theme. Read More
How is it possibly April!? For my March Favourites I’ve been enjoying watching a lot of TV and here are some of my current favourites. I’ve also got back into reading regularly, here are some of my tips! Here are the rest of my March favourites below.
Reading Magazines with Readly
I’ve mentioned how much more than I’m reading books but I am also now reading a LOAD of magazines. When we travel I always tend to buy a couple of magazines which isn’t cheap! With Readly (£7.99 per month) I have actually been saving money. I have noticed that I have a real love for celebrity gossip mags, especially now that I can access them all on the app! I’ve also read a lot of magazines that I just wouldn’t have read before and I have found some new favourites. Also you have access to the back issues too which I have been loving! You can use up to 5 devices so I can read them on my phone too, and you can create 5 users on each account so the whole family can use it! This is totally not sponsored but something that I have been absolutely loving – I am actually quite obsessed to be honest! This is my affiliate link where you can sign up and get your first month for free. You can cancel at anytime. Read More
I wrote back in 2016 about Feel Unique’s Pick ‘N’ Mix service and I’ve used it ever since (admittedly I have probably missed a few months here and there). The deal is that you can get 5 samples for £3.95 (free delivery) and you are then given a voucher for £3.95 off your next shop.
I love it for perfume samples, I just love trying new scents and also getting the smaller bottles which are great for traveling or just carrying in my handbag. I do tend to look for the more girthy sample sizes of skincare samples. Some of the Burts Bees ones have been super sizes.
I absolutely love to read but I am also aware that I have splurges of reading books and other times it can be weeks before I read again. Over the past 4 months I’ve become a more regular reader and I’ve worked on a couple of tips to get better at it. It is something that I can devote time to, I know that we are all busy but I do enjoy reading and it’s one of my favourite ways to escape stress. So here are some tips for how I’ve become a more regular reader…
Pick a good book
Obviously! Read reviews, take recommendations from friends, your favourite author/genre. It is so much easier to read consistently when you can really get into the book. I love the books that you start reading at 10pm as you just get into bed and are still reading beyond midnight. Hooked! Read More
