Food | Where To Go For Cool And Quirky Coffee In London

Hello Lovelies! If you didn't know, 2016 was the year I challenged myself to try out more coffee places (#vickytriescoffee), the quirkier the better. And so while it was a pretty rubbish year for me, at least I had a lot of cool beverages in my hand for most of it. So here's my guide to the coolest and quirkiest places to go for coffee in London. Bring on that hipster aesthetic. 

The Cutest Biscuits In London

At Biscuiteers the main attraction is definitely not the coffee. With several brightly coloured and beautifully designed biscuits on offer, as well as macaroons and a selection of yummy cake you'll probably forget they even serve hot drinks. But I'd definitely recommend one of their lattes alongside a cute biscuit, and if you have a super sweet tooth get the hot chocolate with marshmallows (it's amazing!). Also I have to say the service is amazing here - the staff are just so lovely!

Beauty | Essie Nails In Muchi Muchi


Hey Lovelies! First up, I hope you all had the loveliest Christmas. Mine was spent relaxing, for once. As the queen of over-thinking and doing a billion things at once, it was nice to actually switch off for Christmas and Boxing day, and throw all responsibilities out of the window. And even more excitingly, I was lucky enough to receive an Olympus Pen E-PL8 for Christmas so these are officially the first photos with my camera (eek!). I'm also hoping to re-boot my youtube, now I finally have a good camera and start doing videos again. So watch this space in 2017. 

Lush | Satsuma Bath Bomb

Hello Lovelies! As I write this super last minute final Lush review, I'm sat in front of the tv watching the first Harry Potter for the billionth time. I don't know why Harry Potter is such a Christmas thing, but I'm definitely not complaining. Before I start this review, I should say I really don't like satsumas. They are my least favourite food thing in the world, and if you eat one in front of me I'll probably want to kill you #sorrynotsorry. 

Home | Dartington Crystal Vase

Hello Lovelies! If you ever wondered where my floral crown obsession came from, you need look no further than my mum. She's always been obsessed with gardening and flowers, so there's always a fresh bouquet of flowers in our house somewhere. So I was super happy when Dartington got in touch and asked me to pick something from their collection. 

Lush | So White Bath Bomb


Hello Lovelies! This is my penultimate Lush Christmas review and wow, know everyone is saying it but how is it nearly Christmas? Christmas is so hyped up these days that I feel like the excitement goes before it's even happened to be quite honest, but hey maybe if I down a gingerbread latte and put on my Christmas playlist it will hit me? But enough of that, today's review is a revamp of a classic, the So White Bath Bomb (£3.75).

Lush | Never Mind The Ballistics Bath Bomb

Hello Lovelies! Out of all the Christmas products this year, Never Mind The Ballistics is definitely one of the ones that has stuck out to me. Half yellow, half hot pink, Never Mind The Ballistics (£4.25) is a bath bomb that really sticks out among all the festive products. Scent wise, it's also a standout with a rather tropical scent made up of fresh banana, lime oil and orange oil making for a gorgeous fruity smell. 

Lush | Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb

Hello Lovelies! Another day closer to Christmas, and another Lush Christmas review! Today I'm talking about Lush's Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb (£4.25), which is a personal favourite of mine. This year it was redesigned, with new gold glittery cocoa butter stars and a wonderful vivid blue. Whilst I did love the old design, I think Lush have done an amazing job re-vamping Shoot For The Stars.

Christmas | Stocking Fillers Under £15.00

Hello Lovelies! Originally I had lots of gift guides planned for this year, but after falling a bit ill and then getting a cold that has all gone out of the window. However, I still wanted to do a little stocking guide for you all as little presents are my favourite to buy. I actually pick my own stocking presents and my sister's to help my mum, so I have a LOT of experience doing stocking fillers. Hope you like them!

Home | The Monday Home Edit (19th December - 25th December)

Hello Lovelies! HOW IS IT CHRISTMAS THIS WEEK? Literally time has flown by so quickly it's actually a bit insane, and don't get me started on the fact that it's nearly the end of 2016 too! This week's picks are an eclectic mix of Christmas stuff from Oliver Bonas, House of Fraser, John Lewis and Ohh Deer - so I hope you enjoy!

Lush | Snowie Bubble Bar


Hello Lovelies! 2016 has been one of the saddest and strangest years of my life. It was the year we said goodbye to the complete legend that is David Bowie, and it's so nice to see Lush paying a tribute to him with this cool snowman bubble bar. Besides the cool design, Snowie also has a wonderful calming scent made up of grapefruit oil, rose oil and neroli oil. 

Home | Cox&Cox Winter Wonderland


Hello Lovelies! It's starting to dawn on me that Christmas is nearly here, and you bet I've had Christmas songs on repeat in my head for days...  Today's post is all about bringing festive joy into your home with a little help from the lovely people at Cox&Cox. They recently got in touch asking me to pick a few bits from their Christmas range, and of course I said yes. One of the things I love about Cox&Cox is they're a little eclectic just like me. They love elegance, with a bit of fun and uniqueness thrown in.

Lush | Santasaurus Reusable Bubble Bar

Hello Lovelies! I'll let you in on an embarrassing secret: I've been singing 'Santasaurus is coming to town' for weeks. Yup I know, super clever play on words right there... The Santasaurus reusable bubble bar (£5.95) is a real triumph of design. I mean come on guys a dinosaur in a santa hat! What's not to love? It puts a smile on my face every time I look at it. 

Home | The Monday Home Edit (12th December - 18th December)

Hello Lovelies! Ah I was doing so well with Blogmas but unfortunately I came down with a really bad stomach bug recently so have had to stop! But don't worry there are still lots of Christmas-y posts to come! Today it's all about H&M home, a brand that's completely won me over this year:

Fashion | The Cutest Phone Case From Case Company

Hello Lovelies! It seems Blogmas is somewhat working for me even if I'm doing everything last minute. But hey if it's technically just still on the day that totally counts right? Today is just a quick little post talking about this adorable floral case from Case Company*. Basically Case Company offer both pre-designed cases and custom designs, and luckily they offered to send me one.

Lush | Mistletoe Bath Bomb


Hello Lovelies! Today it's time for another Lush Christmas review! And this time it's Lush's Mistletoe Bath Bomb (£4.25). This was one of the Christmas products I admit didn't really catch my eye at first. Yeah I know it's surprising considering I love pink and mint, but maybe it's because apart from the mistletoe design it just doesn't feel very festive to me! Although that said I love that Lush always have such a wide range of Christmas products, so there really is always something for everyone.

Beauty | Barry M Molten Metals In Copper Mine

Hello Lovelies! You know I love anything and everything copper (I mean what blogger doesn't?) so when I spotted this Molten Metal nail polish by Barry M in Copper Mine (£3.99) I just had to try it. I'll admit that when it comes to Barry M nails I've been pretty underwhelmed in the past. I mean I do love their shades but I've found that they chip quite easily and can stain my nails. 

Lifestyle | 14 Things I Love About Christmas Time

Hello Lovelies! It's no secret that I'm one big fan of Christmas so I thought I'd share with you 20 of the little things I absolutely love about this time of year. Here goes:

Home | The Monday Home Edit (5th December - 11th December)

Hello Lovelies! This week I decided to do some homeware gift ideas with a bit of Christmas spirit thrown in because I honestly feel like I've overloaded you with Christmas stuff recently. Also I discovered Boden this week, and I have to say I'm a little bit in love with their take on Christmas so make sure you check them out! This weeks picks are from Zara Home, Oliver Bonas, Ohh Deer, Luke Arthur Wells and Boden!

Lifestyle | 20 Blog Posts I Loved In November


Hello Lovelies! How is it already December and nearly the end of the year? It's actually kind of mind blowing. But I have to say I'm really looking forward to Christmas this year and I'm already totally in the festive spirit already. Don't even ask me how many gingerbread lattes I've had - it's shocking... As always here are 20 amazing blog posts I loved this month from some fantastic blogging ladies!

Food | Bears Ice Cream Company

Hello Lovelies! Today me and my sister ventured over to Shepherd's Bush in search of yummy ice cream at Bears Ice Cream Company. Interestingly Bears Ice Cream Company isn't your typical ice cream place. It's a sort of English/Icelandic hybrid, taking classic English flavours and making them in the traditional Icelandic way. In Iceland, ice cream isn't just a Summer thing, but a treat that you have all year round. They also make it in a different way to us Brits with typically one soft serve and toppings to add flavour. So Bears Ice Cream is perfect if you love trying something a bit different...

Lush | Ruby Red Slippers Bubble Bar

Hello Lovelies! Originally I assumed Ruby Red Slippers was a Halloween product, but as it turns out this Wizard of Oz inspired product is actually a Christmas one! It makes sense considering it's red and glittery - but hey it just gave me Halloween vibes. Ruby Red Slippers Bubble Bar (£3.95) has a really intriguing scent. It's a mix of carnation, rose and tangerine that creates a lovely mysterious scent. Not one of my favourites, but I love that the scent is a little bit different!

Food | Christmas At Peggy Porschen Cake Parlour

Hello Lovelies! This year I'm attempting Blogmas and I'm honestly so excited (if not a little daunted by it all!). I completed it last year, so let's see if I can this year too. It'll be a mix of festive and normal posts which I know technically isn't the done thing but I'm not sure I can come up with 25 Christmas posts! Today I decided to treat myself and headed to Peggy Porschen Cake Parlour in Chelsea for a Christmas coffee. When I'd heard they'd got rid of the ridiculously pretty floral arch they had last time I visited I was pretty disappointed, but seeing how pretty their Christmas decorations this year are I've been won over.
