The Perfect Subscription Box For Tea-Lovers

Thursday, January 26, 2017

Tea Tourist

"What is Teatourist?" I hear you ask. 

Well, for those of you who don't know Teatourist* a monthly subscription box perfect for tea addicts like myself. The monthly subscription costs just £14.95 and each month you will be sent not one, not two, but six wonderfully different loose leaf tea samples to try all from companies and brands you've probably never heard of before. Teatourist, bringing the world of loose leaf tea to you!

Just before Christmas, I was contacted by the lovely Joss from Tea-Tourist*, who after reading about my love for tea asked if I would like to be sent the December box. No strings attached!

With the rush and mayhem of Christmas looming I was gutted I'd read Joss's email too late. Or so I thought. I quickly replied letting Joss know I was definitely interested in trying a box but fully understood I was too late for their December dispatch and I was happy to wait until January. It'd be like an extra Christmas present. Within a day or two I received another email from Joss explaining she'd rushed a December box out for me, no problem at all - How nice is that?! 

I was genuinely over the moon and could not wait for my box to arrive. It did, and before Christmas too!! 

So, shall we take a look what's inside?

Roses Are Red, Violet's Are Blue

Friday, January 20, 2017

I've never really been one for celebrating Valentine's Day. Long before I was in a relationship. This year will be our 3rd and at the moment we have nothing planned. This doesn't make me sad at all, though. S and I are very similar in the sense that we don't need a particular day to tell each other how we feel. 

The lovely Hannah from Sew Bloom* recently sent out a tweet on Twitter asking people to get in touch who would like to review her handmade Valentine's Day cards and as I'm always on the look out for something a little different and out of the ordinary, I got in touch.

What I Got For Christmas | 2016

Monday, January 16, 2017

I've argued with myself on numerous occasions whether or not to publish this post.

I've posted one every year for the past 2 years over on my previous blog Cake Crumbs and Pages and what with the launch of this blog, I wanted to keep all new content for here. Then once again I saw a lot of stigma surrounding this type of post and I asked myself "do I really want that negativity on my new blog?" and the answer, was no!

But then I took to Twitter and I asked you guys whether you'd like to see a 'What I Got For Christmas" post and do you know what? The response was crazy. Whether you like these posts or not, it's undeniable that we as a nation are noisy. Whether it's seeing what people received for Christmas or Birthday's or whether it's something completely different, we love taking a step into other people's lives so I've decided to publish this post anyway. 

For those that enjoy being noisy.

The Perfect Way To Get Over The Festive Blues | AD

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Are the Christmas blues hitting you hard? Fear not, I have the perfect solution (or two).
Lily Vanilli, London's favorite baker teamed up with Bailey's during the month of December and I was contacted by Megan from Foodies100 / TastePR who asked me if I would like to receive a bottle of Bailey's to bake with.

I absolutely LOVE Bailey's and the thought of experimenting with it rather than just drinking it *hic* fascinated me so, of course, I said yes!

I will most definitely be trying out Lily's other recipes in the future but for this post, I have a very delicious recipe of my own and I'm super excited to share them with you.


What Happens When...

Sunday, January 08, 2017

I was going to wait a few days to post this. Let it sink in and properly introduce you to my new blog in the meantime but, even two days on I am still freaking out and I want to scream it from the rooftop. 

So, what happens when Thomson tweet you saying they want to give you £1,000 in vouchers to go on holiday?
