THE THROWBACK TAG

These posts are one of my favourites to read so I thought it was time to do another! Here are my answers to the Throwback Tag questions!
1) What year were you born?
1999
2) What did you look like when you were younger? (share a picture!)
Here are a few of me when I was little, I have to admit, I was a fan of the camera!


3) What TV shows did you watch when you were young?
When I was really young I loved Bob The Builder and Bear in the Big Blue House & then when I was a bit older I was obsessed with Disney Channel - my favourite was probably Wizards of Waverly Place!
4) What toys did you play with and what was the name of your favourite toy?
I liked playing with Polly Pocket a lot, and Tamagotchi's oh my, they were great! When I was a little older I loved playing on my Nintendo DS mostly! One of my favourite toys was a bear called Picnic! 
5) What songs did you love when you were young?
I was obsessed with the song 'The Tide is High' when I was pretty young, I can remember s…

APRIL MONTHLY FAVOURITES

I honestly can't believe it is May already! It does not feel like it has been a year since my starting the exam season for my A Levels, good luck to everyone starting any exams by the way! Anyway, April went by pretty quickly and the weather was all over the place, however like always there were definitely some things I enjoyed through the month!
Spring Photography - The weather has certainly been all over the place however we had some really lovely days at the end of April and I managed to get out and about to enjoy it! I love taking photos and my hometown has some gorgeous spots so I couldn't resist going on an evening walk, I really hope I can build up a nice collection of photos in the coming months!
Fashion - Anyone that knows me will tell you that I have a large collection of striped tops in my wardrobe. At this time of the year when the weather is a bit warmer, a striped t-shirt is a staple for me, they're so simple but can add a bit of interest to a plain outfit a…

OLD ENGLISH COMPANY COMPETITION!

I've been a fan of Old English Company for ages now, they have some great little bits including prints, homeware and stationery. I often find myself scrolling through their Instagram or Pinterest and mentally create a wishlist in my head of everything I want! I love simplistic designs and they do exactly that, they're definitely somewhere to check out if you want some new bits for your home or some gift ideas!

I'd love to know if anybody already has some bits from Old English Company or if you've been eyeing something up for a while!
Anyway, when they got in touch with me to let me know that they had a competition for their new Enamel Pin range I wanted to let people know! Their collection of pins are so cute and there are some really fun designs. They're a great way to jazz up a jacket, bag, or you can even buy an Enamel Pin Display Flag which I love the idea of!

My favourites are definitely the Pineapple, Monstera Leaf and the Love Heart but you can check out th…

ACTION CAMERA & WIRELESS CHARGER REVIEW : PURFECT SOLUXIONS

I was recently contacted by Philex Electronic Ltd, a leading brand that produces a range of different electronic equipment. They have branched out to create an online presence called 'Purfect Soluxions' which involves exclusive content being sold directly through Amazon and a platform in which they can share and create content with a number of influencers.

I am a huge lover of technology and love trying new bits out. You can find a number of different products that I've talked about in my posts so I was really excited about this collaboration opportunity! 
I have two products to review today, however, first I would just like to commend the company itself. The efficient and informative emails, as well as the super quick arrival of the products, made it a pleasure to work with them! 
Lexi 4k Action Camera
I've always enjoyed experimenting with different cameras and elements of photography and an action camera is something I've not properly used before. I was really i…

A QUICK AND EASY CHOCOLATEY TREAT

One of my all time favourite recipes are the simple 'Easter Nests', I've enjoyed making them since I was a child so I thought I'd share my recipe! Just as to begin with, I understand that Easter has already been and gone...but I couldn't resist not posting about the ones I made the other day and you can enjoy them all year round!

So why do I like them so much?
Well firstly, they're ridiculously easy to make and require only a few ingredients. They are also very adaptable, I used Rice Krispies but Shredded Wheat, Cornflakes and other cereals will work just as well! I obviously put Mini Eggs on the top of mine, however, you could leave them plain or choose a topping of your choice! This recipe is also a great one if your making things with a group of friends, siblings (like me) or especially with younger children as it's simple and fun! I definitely think they're ideal for Easter/Spring birthday parties or if you're just having guests round since mos…

MARCH MONTHLY FAVOURITES

March is always a pretty busy time, it's known as the 'birthday month' in our family because between the 1st and 21st, 7 of us have celebrated our birthdays! This means that there is a lot of family time, a lot of presents and a lot of cake which is a pretty good mix - plus there are loads of things I've been loving this month so I'll get started!
Weather
Something I had to mention in this monthly favourites was the rather strange weather we had! We'd not had any decent snow since 2013 and then we had multiple snow days in March, so I think it's fair to say that Spring was delayed! I actually really like the snow, it's so amazing to look out at, especially when it is untouched! Although I did slip over on the ice, straight on my back...so that wasn't as great!

Fashion 

This month I have worn my denim jacket constantly, I don't know how I've lived without one for so long! Besides the random snow days, we've definitely had a few milder and m…

WHAT I GOT FOR MY BIRTHDAY

As you may know from my previous post, it was my birthday recently and as I always enjoy reading what gifts other people received, I thought I would share mine too! As I get older I find it increasingly harder to decide what I actually want so I'm so grateful for everything I did get!

Bath Set
One of my presents from my sisters was this bath set from the Scandinavian brand Hugg. Little sets like this one are the ideal birthday gift for when you don't want anything in particular and I've never used anything from them so I'm excited to try it out! I also think the packaging is so pretty, it's pretty minimalistic but that's definitely the sort of thing I'm into at the moment. The set contains a 100ml bath soak and body lotion and is only £8 in Waitrose at the moment!

Diffuser

My sisters also gave me a diffuser from Fired Earth in the scent Assam and White Cedar. I'd never heard of this brand before but I absolutely love their packaging and the product itself…
