Baby shower fun πŸ’› Β 

So during May me and my twin sister Sarah hosted our big sisters baby shower! She is due mid July so we decided May would be the perfect time, especially with Half term then too.
We went for an afternoon tea theme with the colour scheme of yellow/grey/gold as they haven’t found out the baby s gender! This was really cool to plan as the only other baby showers I’ve organised are Sarah’s and they were both blue themed.

Here are the decorations…

Afternoon tea vibes ✌

We had loads of food from sweet fruit scones, jam Swiss roll, lemon cheesecake, chocolate cupcakes & Victoria sponge to savoury cheese straws  sandwiches, sausage rolls & a cheese ring! With plenty of tea and coffee.

Activities…

So to keep the guests entertained we had a couple of games/activities and things for the guests to do.

Baby due date predictions.

Messages & advice.

Guess the baby. Whose old photo is whose?

Photo booth fun! 

Guess the size of the baby bump.

Opening presents.

Me, Sarah and Mum clubbed together to get Charlotte a few things that she still needed incl bottles, a steraliser & some bibs & baby grows.

Favours/mementos…

We bought these super cute gift/favour bags to pip a little something in for each guest. We thought the floral vibe went well with the afternoon tea theme & would be right up Charlotte’s street. The colours were of courses perfect too. 

In the bags we had little bags of milk bottle sweets, retro 😎 and little wish bracelets. Sarah found these online and they are sooo cute.

* Make a Wish for baby *

‘Tie this bracelet on your wrist, close your eyes and make a Wish. When the bracelet breaks in two, the wish you made may soon come true.’

The bracelets are yellow with a little silver footprints charm. I love how you could personalise it too.

As a little memento for Charlotte we also made a sort of picture guest book (thanks Pinterest!) 

Everybody who came signed a balloon with their name and then I arranged it onto the pre drawn picture. Someone I work with is brilliant at drawing so I asked her to draw the elephant on, it looks fab. We thought this would be a lovely keepsake, perfect for the nursery.

It was a really fun (& tasty!) afternoon and everything went smoothly, which as a host is all you can ask for really! 

As I write this there are only 26 days (or 27 if my prediction is correct haha) until Baby S is due and I’ll be an Auntie for the 3rd time, EXCITING!!

Until next time,

Take That at the 02!! πŸŽΆπŸŽΆ

**Spoiler alert: This blog contains pictures of the show, if you havnt been yet avert your eyes**

Last night I went to see my favourite band ever, Take That,  perform at the 02 arena in London and it was awesome. This was my 5th time watching Take That live, in all their various combinations over the years (5 piece, 4 piece &  now as a 3 piece!) They are amazing live and they put on a FANTASTIC SHOW!! I can’t believe the first time I saw them live was 2009, 8 years ago!! So much has changed. 

They are hands down the best singers/performers I’ve seen live.

Their tour this time was called Wonderland and the sets were beautiful and really brightly coloured. Its like watching a theatre show and a concert at the same time.

Their stage was positioned in the middle of the 02 this time too which was fab and you had a great view of the stage wherever you sat. I have to say the height of the 02 is terrifying, truly! Especially when you have to shuffle past people to make it to your seat and there’s no barrier!! Ahh πŸ™ˆ

They did a few songs from their new album Wonderland as well as their previous albums since their comeback, as well as the classic 90s Take That (My personal fav πŸ‘Œ) 

One of my most favourite things about Take That concerts, other than how friendly everyone is, is those moments in certain songs when your all just united in enjoyment of a band that you all love, whether it’s waving your hands from side to side in unison for ‘Shine’ or clapping together for ‘Never Forget’ those moments when you and other people from all over the country (& possibly the world) are united are just brilliant. That’s something really special especially in recent times, I found this particularly poignant last night and it was a lovely feeling to once again be a part of the family of Take That fans. 

So here’s to another fantastic tour, long may it continue πŸ‘ #TTforever 

Who is your favourite band/singer? 

Until next time,

Tanya Burr Neutral ambience collection πŸπŸŒ΄

I was super excited to see that Tanya Burr had brought out some new additions to her beauty range, and what better way to spend my birthday money aye!?

I grabbed three of her four new products and I thought I would share them with you, let you know what they are like and such! So let’s get into it. 

These are the two eyeshadow palettes. Let’s talk about the packaging!! It’s so pretty 😍 It’s a matte finish with shiny palm leaves and pineapples printed onto it. The ‘my escape’ palette is a lovely tropical green colour and the ‘my paradise’ is in a lovely copper colour  

My escape 🌴

The four shades in this palette are: (from top left) New perspective,wild jungle, tree tops and master plan.

I love the dusky pink colour and the khaki colour is beautiful and has a lovely shimmer to it. I don’t have any colours like the khaki and it looks so pretty on. I love those two for an everyday look and then the bottom darker shades to add a smoky, night out feel to your eye look.

My paradise 🍍

The four shades in this palette are: (from top left) champagne cocktail, tranquillity, Miami sunrise and hammock (love that name!)
I love the coppery tones of this palette, this is a perfect addition to my eyeshadow collection (which mainly includes pinks) They are so pretty and again a lovely mix of matte and shimmery tones.

So pretty!

I also picked up one of the two new lipstick shades…

Sunday walk πŸ’„

This beautiful pinky toned lipstick is called ‘Sunday walk’ I love it soo much. Pink is my favourite shade and this is a lovely matte lip that looks really pretty on and can be quite subtle too, which I like! Great for everyday or a polished evening look, perfect with a smoky eye.

Having these products has made me want to start using eyeshadow more and trying out some different looks, being a bit more daring.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little look at Tanya’s new products! Let me know if you’ve tried any out and your thoughts 😊

Until next time,

Primark haulΒ 

As promised here’s another Primark haul! Me and my sister went to the Primark on Oxford Street when we were in London recently and although we only had 15 minutes max we managed to grab an impressive amount between us!! 

Im not sure it’s necessarily something to be proud of but I got some nice bits so I’m happy none the less haha #selfconfessedprimarkaddict

So let’s have a look at what I picked up!

Swimsuit Β£4

I love this swimsuit, it’s a lovely mint green colour with cute little pink flamingos all over it, adorable. I don’t need a new swimsuit but I am loving the tropical inspired prints of this season and for Β£4 you can’t go wrong!!

Plain black pumps Β£4

Although not overly exciting, I picked up two pairs of these plain black pumps for work. They are super comfy and again only Β£4 each.

Black Van style shoes Β£6

I was so tempted to ask for a pair of Vans for my birthday but I changed my mind at the last minute (hella expensive!!) and I’m glad I did! 

I saw these in Primark literally the next day for Β£6 and you cannot tell the difference, in fact other than the enormous price difference the only thing they don’t have is a red vans tag on them. 

Black pumps with gold detail Β£8

 These were also bought for work and are a bit prettier than the others, however the size 6 in these doesn’t fit me even though the other black pumps are a 6, sadface.     So I will be having to return these, it’s such a shame as I love the gold detailing and tassels.

Dusky pink slip on mules Β£8
How pretty are these mules?! 🏡😍 my sister was on the hunt for these in the Oxford street Primark and when I saw them I had to grab a pair too!! They are a faux velvet material with a pretty pink bow on the front. They are super comfy as they are slip one and the colour is one of my favourites, plus only Β£8!! 

Embroidered shirt Β£12

I am IN LOVE with this shirt. It’s beautiful. I love the trend of embroidery for casual clothes or on something more dressy so I instantly fell in love with this shirt when I saw it, Spring/Summer perfect πŸ‘Œ It’s a longer shirt which I like and the slight splits up either side make it really flattering with skinny black trousers for work or skinny jeans for a more causal look.

Les rose’ t shirt Β£6

This is a lovely causal tee with pretty rose gold/copper writing on the front, love it! The material is soooo soft too.

Dip dye t shirt Β£5 

Coral is such a pretty summer colour so this really stood out to me when I was looking in the t shirt section. It’s an ombre effect from the coral to white and is slightly longer than a usual tee. I can’t wait to pair this with skinny jeans, 3/4 lengths or maybe even shorts (dare to dream!!) 

Stripey t shirt with embroidered rose Β£6

Yep, your seeing right! Another stripey tee πŸ™ˆ But a girl can never have too many (Am I right!!) This one is a bit longer than a cropped tee but it is still quite short, it would work as a cropped top or if you’re like me and couldn’t think of anything worse grab those high waisted jeans/shorts/trousers and rock it with those instead.  I love the embroidered rose on it too πŸ₯€

Polka dot Sheer fashion socks Β£2

Tanya Burr recently wore some Vans with little socks like these and I loved the look so I grabbed these two pairs for Β£2. These have got cute polka dots on them.

Fishnet tights Β£3

These may seem an odd purchase but allow me to explain. As I said with my previous picture I took inspiration from a look Tanya Burr recently wore, but I couldn’t find the fishnet fashion socks in any of the Primarks I went in (even Oxford street!!) So, the next best thing was the tights because I figured under ripped jeans these would still be pretty cool as you can see the tights through the rips too.

Not everyones cup of tea i know but I  really liked this look.

So, those were my purchases! I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know what bits you’ve picked up in good old Primark recently too πŸ‘

Until next time,

My new camera πŸ“·

Hi guys! It’s been a little while, May seems to be slipping by rapidly!! Me & my twin sister celebrated our birthday on Friday so I thought I would share with you my main present from my lovely hubby.

It will come in super handy for my blog so I thought why not share! 

So I’ve wanted a new camera for a little while and especially since me and my sister started YouTube. I don’t know a lot about cameras so I sought the advice of my bro in law who does and this is one he suggested…

It’s the Nikon Coolpix B500 bridge camera in black. 

Whats a bridge camera I hear you say? 

‘A bridge Camera is a general name for digital cameras that have some degree of manual control, a long range zoom lens and a viewfinder – but usually not interchangeable lenses. They are somewhere between a point and shoot camera, and a full DSLR.’ – O.Tadmor

I’m just getting to grips with it at the moment, It’s relatively easy to use once you have a fiddle about and I am loving some of the different effects you can take photos in. The quality for videos is great too!
Here are a few photos I took yesterday whilst in London. I hope you like them πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you again soon for a Primark haul!

Until next time,

Joining the gym πŸ‘Š

So, I’ve done it, I’ve joined the gym! It is pretty much opposite our flat, it takes less than 2 minutes to walk there so there’s no excuse really is there? (Keep telling yourself that Roseanne!) For just using that gym it’s only Β£19.99 which I didn’t think was too bad either considering this is usually my bug bear about gyms (they are seriously expensive right!?!) That and the fact I spend most of my time trying to work out how to turn the machine on to a suitable level & where I can plug my headphones in (gym essential no 1!)

So in  preparation for sed joining of the gym I decided to kit myself out. Well I may as well look the part!! Because let’s be honest I havnt got a clue what I’m doing once I’m in there.
So let’s take a look at my costume ( I mean gym gear πŸ˜†) 

Disclaimer: I’m not sponsored by Primark but 1. I BLOODY love it. You’ll know that if you’ve been round here before or met me in real life And 2. I’m going to sweat all over it, why spend a fortune?!

First up, tops! 

I picked two different tops, both made of that similar gym clothing material (which according to the label is ….. Polyester & elastene, theres a fun fact for ya! Stretchy stretchy!) 

I chose a pink top and a light grey one as I thought these were nice and would go nicely with the leggings I also picked up. These were Β£5 each.

Leggings!

I went for 3/4 length ones as I prefer these and I picked them up in light grey, love these.

They were Β£5.

I picked up another sports bra/crop top thing. I already have one from Primark from a little while ago, that I use for Parkrun, that looks like this ⬇


The new one I picked up is just a plain black one.

This was Β£3.50.

I also grabbed some socks! Does anyone else have somewhere in their house where their socks must go for a holiday because I buy so many and yet never have any to wear!! 

I picked these up especially for the gym so I will put these in a super safe place! (Like that’s going to make a difference Roseanne.) Worth a try.

They cost Β£2.50.

And finally, a lovely new water bottle (I have a serious water bottle/travel mug/lunchbox obsession. Is this what happens when you become an adult in a full time job?) It’s seriously getting out of hand BUT this ones lovely and hardly breaks the bank at Β£2.50 So let the obsession continue. 

So, those are my gym bits and bob’s.

On a serious note, I need to change my mindset really because I can’t just think I can eat crap and get away with it because I’ve done a class or been for a run, I need to make exercise a part of a more balanced lifestyle. Wish me luck 🀞

Until next time,

Afternoon tea Β πŸ°β˜•

I love Afternoon tea & I know loads of you guys do too so I thought that I would share my most recent Afternoon tea experience with you. 

We went to a place called Suffolk food hall that has a cafe, farm shop, garden centre & restaurant on site (amongst other things!) There’s lots going on there but it’s a lovely place. 

The decoration in the restaurant is lovely, it’s nice & bright. I love the white wood painted ceilings, Sandy brick walls & restored beams. 

The view outside the large windows is so lovely too! You look out onto the River Orwell & the cow fields too.

Here’s what we had for Afternoon tea…

Bottom tier:

  • Mini brown roll with Ham & mustard
  • Mini granary/seeded roll with smoked salmon & cream cheese 
  • Mini white roll with cheese & pickle
  • Mini cheese & leek tartlet
  • Sausage roll 

Middle tier: 

  • Large Fruit scone with clotted cream & raspberry jam
  • Carrot cake slice with cream cheese frosting.

Top tier:

  • Mini chocolate & caramel shortbread
  • White chocolate chip cookie 
  • Mini shortbread

& of course lots of English breakfast tea.

My mum doesn’t like chocolate so she was given a shortbread, however, she does eat white chocolate so I gave her my white choc chip cookie and I had her plain shortbread as I LOVE shortbread. 

Me & mum both work at the same After school club and we arranged this afternoon tea for our friend (who also used to work at the after school club) as it was her 30th Birthday this year! We had a lovely time 🎈

I really enjoyed this afternoon tea as it was a bit different to the last one I had (check them out here: Patisserie Valerie ) as the cakes/biscuits were different & really tasty! I especially enjoyed the chocolate & caramel shortbread, it was literally melt in the mouth πŸ‘Œ

The only thing I feel could have been improved was having a variety of breads for the savoury section instead of all rolls & a little bit more filling in these. 

Cost: Β£14.50 each & bookable in advance.
I hope you’ve found this useful 😁

Until next time,

EASTER! 🌼🐣πŸ₯

I havn’t done a blog post about something I’ve done in ages! I love reading those sort of posts myself (So I hope you guys do too!) Plus they are nice to look back on and reminisce. 

My hubby had Friday off of course which was a nice treat so we decided to make the most of the day and do as much as we could together and it was soooo nice.

Good Friday 

So we started off the day with a super yummy cooked brekky, a lovely Friday treat as usually we would both be at work and wouldn’t have time for such an indulgent breakfast.

After that we didn’t have long before the film we had decided to see at the cinema was starting (Beauty & the Beast!!!πŸ₯€) As we live close to our local cinema and the sun was shining we decided to walk.
Of course the film was amazing (I’d already seen it once!) But Tim also enjoyed it too.

We were getting a bit peckish again by the time the film had finished so we had a cheeky Nandos, because why not! It’s a bank HOLIDAY after all, treat yo self!

& the fun didn’t stop there, oh no. Next stop was back home for a spot of Harry Potter Monopoly (Yes you heard right!) 
My very clever and lovely husband designed and made this for me for my birthday a few years ago as offical Harry Potter Monopoly doesnt exist. It’s amazing.

In the evening we decided to grab a drive thru Starbucks from the new one in our hometown and head to our local bowling alley. The Starbucks was beaut. πŸ‘Œβ˜• 

We had three games of bowling (Tim won best of three) and then we headed home.

A very GOOD Friday! (Sorry, not sorry!)

Easter Weekend 

Saturday

We completed our usual 5k Parkrun first thing Saturday morning, insert horrendous picture here ⬇

Once we had done that we went our separate ways to freshen up and get ready to go to Lowestoft. Tim’s mum & Dad have a holiday flat there so we are staying for the Easter weekend. 

We arrived around 2 o clock and settled in before heading to the shops to grab some dinner supplies. 

We then headed to the beach for a play & the arcades too!!!!! Seriously coooool.

Later on Me & Noah got creative and made some yummy chocolate Eatser treats…

& we cooked and ate dinner, watched BGT and played games in the evening 🎲

Easter Sunday 

First things first, EASTER EGGS!! 

We discovered the little cafe over the road from the flat is open on Easter Sunday so we headed over for breakfast… 

…unfortunately everyone else had the same idea!! Looks like they are the only place open for business on Easter Sunday, in Lowestoft.

Whilst we waited for our food we took a walk!
Oh I do like to stroll along the prom prom prom 🐚🌞

Once we were suitably full and wind swept we headed back for more Easter frivolity ie an Egg hunt & an Egg and spoon race.

For the rest of the afternoon we chilled out before heading back home.

Our family has an Easter tradition of a Chinese takeaway in the evening on Easter Sunday (Yeah it’s random I know) Don’t hate us cause you ain’t us! 

Jealous, right?! I love a family tradition. 


What do you guys do for Easter? 

Happy Easter! πŸ₯🐣🐰

Until next time,
