We all have our favourites things/items and the reality is they change from time to time. I am going to be giving the spotlight in this new series of all the things I have been loving recently. I’m aiming on them being weekly but let’s face it as soon as you add restrictions it instantly becomes less interesting to write – but enough of my waffle, let’s get to it…
Tea – Clipper Skinni Vanilli
As person I am a sucker for anything in pink, red or purple packaging, especially if it is floral. This Clipper Skinny Vanilli tea instantly caught my eye with it’s pink butterflies and strawberry pattern – strawberry and vanilla infusion, tick. Next I looked at the price, which isn’t often a swaying point when it comes to tea but when it’s on offer – it’s a done deal. Much like the box that fell into my hands, through the till and into my cup at the office.
It’s light, refreshing yet fruity and sweet. It’s a tea which warms you in the unpredictable english weather whilst giving you the opportunity to reminisce sunny days and ice cream. On closer inspection it’s made with hibiscus and rosehip which are two of my favourite tea flavours so it shouldn’t have come as too much of a surprise that I have nearly devoured a box in a week! I would highly recommend this tea for a light but sweet afternoon treat.
I managed to spare a few teabags for fellow blogger Leighanne to try, here’s what she said:
Tastes like the strawberry bit of a fab lolly! It’s sweet and yummy!!!
Beauty – Peachy Fox moisturiser
For ages I was hooked on my TIANA Rose Fresh Coconut moisturiser and didn’t think that anything could top it. Enter this little gem – Peachy Fox Organic Collagen Retinol Moisturiser. Featuring powerful natural ingredients such as aloe vera, rosehip oil and coconut oil this product is up there in my all time favourites. One pump is all you need as a little goes a long way and fits perfectly into my daily skincare routine. The packaging is simple, yet sleek and a good size. What’s more, it’s easily available on Amazon (especially with Prime, on your door the next day) and only £12.99.

Fashion – Slogan tees and jumpers
I have really loved motivational quotes this year – well to be fair, quotes in general – so as soon as I spotted THE actually I can jumper on Hannah‘s instagram feed I wanted it. I needed it. I waited for my size. I got it. But whilst the unpredictable weather has switched to warmer muggy conditions (non jumper weather basically, pain in the arse) there are plenty of tees out there. Here are my top 5 picks:

John is a friend and one I met through blogging and I am so glad I did. In January, John is going to walking from Southampton to Aberdeen all in aid of charity – why?
