Weekly Homeware/Gifts Picks (29th February - 6th March)

Hello Lovelies! Today I thought I'd indulge my inner art nerd, and do a art themed Weekly Homeware/Gifts Picks! Ever since I was a child, I've loved visiting art galleries, despite being less than talented in the art department myself. But even if art isn't your thing, I have to say that Gallery gift shops are hidden gems. The Saatchi one for example is absolutely amazing (seriously my heaven) and actually this week, all my picks come from the Tate gift shop. Ok I'll stop my excited ramblings now, enjoy!

Advertising | Meet These Lovely Bloggers

Hello Lovelies! Today is my first advertiser post, and I honestly couldn't be happier with all the lovely people who bought my advertising this month. If you didn't know already, I have two packages, the first is a £5.00 Josie package with all proceeds going to The Cystic Fibrosis Trust. And the second is one dedicated to Natalie, also a blogger who sadly passed away last year from Meningitis. The Natalie package costs £3.00 and there are four available each month, with all proceeds going to The Meningitis Research Foundation! Please do get in touch with me if you'd like to purchase a package, and go to the above Advertising page for more information!

Here are my lovely advertisers this month, who you've seen in my sidebar this February!


Zoe is a 24 year old, Lifestyle/Beauty blogger from South London, who started a blog to express herself and ramble about the things she loves and hates. She has an awesome sense of style, and I am completely and utterly jealous of her Disney Vans.

- A good place to start, by getting to know Zoe! (No. 1 actually applies to me too)

The Single Girl Diaries | My First Crush

Hello Lovelies! Fans of my anecdotes this series, will love this week as we're popping into a time machine, and going all the way back to my primary school days. To paint a picture, young me was a shy, walking advert for Gap who lived in pink and always felt like the outsider. I guess we're all defined by who we were as kids. I know I am. Deep down I will always be that girl, and you know what she would never have believed you in a million years if you'd told her she'd be a blogger one day. Life is funny like that.

Lifestyle | Trying Japanese Snacks

Hello Lovelies! If you didn't know already, I'm a big fan of just about anything Japanese. In fact I'm a such a Japan nerd, that it's now my degree (Japanese and Korean). So I thought it would be fun - and hopefully entertaining if I did a video of me trying out some Japanese snacks. Disclaimer, I may have only done this so I could justify snacking... Whoops. 

Lush | Roller Bath Bomb

Hello Lovelies! Before I start with this review, I thought I'd just let you know that I'm currently holding a £10 Lush Gift Card giveaway on my Twitter that ends on the 29th Feb. All you have to do is follow me and retweet this tweet, so its nice and simple and if you do decide to enter, good luck! Today's review is one that I'm really excited to share with you guys. If you watched my Lush Easter Haul, you'll have seen that I finally picked up this Oxford Street Exclusive that is actually part of The Mother's Day Collection! The Roller Bath bomb (£3.95), was one that intrigued me from the get go as it's half bath melt, half bath bomb, a combination that just really excited me (aren't I sad?). 

Weekly Homeware/Gifts Picks (22nd February - 28th February)

Hello Lovelies! This week I've definitely started to feel a lot better, and whatever virus was infecting me has started to die away (thank god). So although I have a backlog of work, I'm excited to finally get back to university and enjoy being productive again. This week I went for a slightly muted colour scheme of red and cork, that isn't like me but I love how it's all come together. All this week's picks are from Ohhdeer and Urban Outfitters.

The Single Girl Diaries | Learning To Love Myself

Hello Lovelies! If there is one piece of advice I always used to hate it was: 'You have to love yourself before someone can love you.' Loving myself seemed like this weird foreign concept. In fact, the whole idea of it intimidated me. Because really it was scary to me, thinking perhaps if I didn't reach that point where I truly loved myself no one ever would. 

Lush | Flutterby Bubble Bar

Hello Lovelies! Every now and then Lush releases a product that brings out my inner excited young girl, and the Flutterby bubble bar (£4.95) has done exactly that. It's safe to say I squealed when I saw this, in a good way. It's pink, it's pretty and it has a butterfly too! I'm in love. Scent wise, it's what you'd expect, a lovely sweet candy scent with fruity undertones which is absolutely perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth. Just don't try eating it guys... I know you people exist!

Fashion | You Can Never Have Enough Cute Socks

Hello Lovelies! I'm pretty sure just about everyone loves a good pair of socks, even if they struggle to actually find a matching pair. Last week I ended up rocking a 'Best Dad Ever' and pink sock combo, which really shows how dire my attempts of finding a match are (sorry Dad for stealing your socks). I'm sure I'm not alone on this, but I can't actually remember the last time I managed to successfully find a pair. So at this point, I am totally convinced sock gremlins actually exist because you know my lack of organisation is obviously not to blame...

Weekly Homeware/Gifts Picks (15th February - 21st February)

Hello Lovelies! Unfortunately I am feeling super under the weather today after I somehow managed to catch a really bad cold, fun. So I thought to try and combat the doom and gloom I'd go for a fun, bright tropical theme because I am frankly fed up of Winter already! Give me Summer already please. All of this week's picks are from H&M Home and are super budget friendly if you're looking to add a few bits and bobs to your home!

The Single Girl Diaries | Happy Forever Alone Day

Hello Lovelies! Guess who bought themselves chocolates? *Slowly raises hand* I even nearly bought myself flowers but my dad beat me to it, and got me some lovely pink roses which shows two things: one my dad is super pessimistic about my love life and two my dad is total dad goals. Biggest sweetheart ever. All pretty good right? Well... Guess who got a cold? Me. A really attractive one too, YESSSS! And of course my Valentine's Day also looks pretty much just like this:

Lush | Limited Edition Pink Tisty Tosty

Hello Lovelies! Anyone who loyally reads my reviews will know that me and the original Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb didn't exactly get on, because frankly whilst it was one of the most beautiful Lush products it was also one of the most underwhelming. So when Lush released their Oxford Street exclusive pink version, I couldn't help but feel a bit disappointed. But alas, I was still curious to see if this had more to offer than it's original so still ended up buying one anyway. 

Valentine's Day | My Ultimate Gift Guide

Hello Lovelies! Anyone who has followed this blog for a while will know I take gifting very seriously. It's like borderline obsession, so I love looking for gifts for basically everything - and yes even Valentine's day which will probably surprise people who read my Single Girl Diaries. But I thought I would put together a gift guide covering everything from the card, to adorable socks to help out anyone who is doing some last minute shopping. Enjoy - and I hope you find it helpful!

Weekly Homeware/Gifts Picks (8th February - 14th February)

Hello Lovelies! As you may have noticed this week I've done a Valentine's day theme for the obvious reason, it's Valentine's this Sunday! As anyone who reads my blog will know, I am single but nevertheless I actually love picking out gifts for any holiday so Valentine's is no exception. I even have an ultimate Valentine's Day Gift Guide ready which will be up on the blog tomorrow for anyone who has yet to buy their gift or card (I've got you covered). This week's picks are from Modcloth, Urban Outfitters, Selfridges and Luckies. 

The Single Girl Diaries | Rush-Hour Crush

Hello Lovelies! Recently I've been preoccupied with the thought of bringing my duvet on the commute with me. Like seriously, to tired me at 7.45am there is no sweeter thought then rushing back to my beloved duvet, hugging it dearly and returning to the land of the sleeping. Alas though, a girl got to get to Uni even if that means being squished by a pack of sweaty commuters. And yes, it really is as attractive as it sounds. 

Lifestyle | January Pawsome Box

Hello Lovelies! Another month, another Pawsome box*, and another very happy dog. We've had a few of these boxes already, and every time Molly sees one she goes absolutely mental because she knows she'll be getting new treats and toys - yay! 

Lush | Heart Throb Bubble Bar

Hello Lovelies! With the release of the new Lush Mother's Day Collection, I find myself coming near to the end of my Valentine's reviews and faced with a mountain of other products to review. But this time I'm reviewing Lush's Heart Throb Bubble Bar (£3.75), which is sadly only available at Lush Oxford Street this year!

Lush | Roses All The Way Soap

Hello Lovelies! Any fan of Alice in Wonderland will appreciate Lush creating a product inspired by the 'painting the roses red scene'. Actually if you look at the large soap in store, it looks just like the rose trees in the Disney film, which I honestly find a bit too cool. If you caught my Queen of Hearts afternoon tea, you will know I'm a big fan, so I was all over this soap (usually never buy Lush ones!). As you probably guessed the Roses All The Way Soap (£4.25) has a lovely rose scent, shocker I know!

Weekly Homeware/Gifts Picks (1st February - 7th February)

Hello Lovelies! For this week I decided to just pick out happy things that make me smile because I am a bit of a stress monster at the minute, Grrr. I have reading week coming up, so that means I get to rest soon, I just have lots of work leading up to then (Yay!). This week's picks are from Topshop, Ohhdeer and Asos!
