Don’t you love it when you discover a new brand that you haven’t heard of before and they’re stuff is totally cute and just works? This is how I’m feeling about Korean skincare and beauty brand Erborian right now. This packaging though, it’s so super cute and I’ve been loving these products so far. I get sent quite a few new launches from some lovely PRs and I don’t always blog about them all if they don’t set my world on fire but I’ve really fallen for this brand and wanted to share some of their lovely bits with you.
Someone thought it was totally OK to give us a mortgage (here’s looking at you Natwest, no going back now) – so we bought a house! Hence why things have been a little thin on the ground and sporadic over the past few weeks – it gets a bit stressful, dunnit?
Now we’re in thanks to the in-laws of dreams and a lot of hard work and there’s not a cardboard box in sight after two and a half days of unpacking and sorting out. There’s something to be done in every room and it’s going to be at least a year, if not longer until everything is exactly how we want it to be, let’s not talk about the kitchen, but we’ll get there. So, here’s introducing a new section of proper interiors onto the blog. I’ve always loved interiors but living in rented flats and houses really limits you to basically changing your sheets and hanging a few prints if you’re handy with the Polyfilla so I’m really looking forward to finally being able to decorate like a grown up.
If you know me well you’ll know that I’m definitely more National Trust than night clubs and it’s been this way for a little while! We absolutely love the National Trust as you might have read in my post a few weeks ago about our first trip to Calke Abbey – we try to go at least once a month but recently because the weather’s been so gorgeous we’ve been getting out to a few every month which is awesome.
Just in case you don’t follow me on Instagram I’ll fill you in on my life lately. My Sunday brunch was a little different last weekend. Whereas it’s normally telly and a veggie sausage sandwich that I kick start my day with, last weekend was more about giving something back to the community that I’m actually about to move into.

Brunch is my favourite food group and yep, I’ll accept being basic af with that admission but, what you gonna do? This gal likes eggs, and anything on toast. Last week I popped to Cartwheel in Nottingham with my hun Robyn for a catch up. She took the photos that I obviously couldn’t take myself – thanks babe!
Another post full of shopping-enabling picks for you today, gals. I don’t know what happened but after I tried on this amazing River Island crochet jumper I’ve been obsessing over yellow. 100% my new fave colour of the summer. I picked up some amazing yellow sandals in Primark last week and I’m just trying to stop myself buying all of the picks in this post! Let me know what you think about these pieces in the comments.
I’m still obsessed with Refinery 29 money diaries and I totally want to be on one. Life goals right there.
I asked on my Instagram stories whether people would rather read what I spend in a week or what I eat in a week and it was a huge percentage towards spend so basically you are all as nosy as I am and I’m totally OK with that. I thought I’d kick this off in June and start from a Saturday where I’m more likely to actually spend something! Grab a cuppa and have a lil’ read.
This post was going to be my May favourites but I didn’t quite get around to sorting my life out so it’s a general summer-themed jumble of some products that I’ve been loving recently and wanted to share! There’s everything from tan to library books so I hope you enjoy!

Jeans are 100% my go to thing to wear every day. They’re just so easy and I’m lucky enough to have a job casual enough that I can wear them every day if I wanted to. As the trends of SS18 make their way into our wardrobes, it’s time to choose your faves! But, when it comes to washes, shapes and styles, do you know this season’s jeans and if they’re going to make you feel awesome? Let’s check it out.
