Lifestyle: 10 Things I'm Loving This Week #2

Olive clothing red striped sailboat tshirt
1. Olive Clothing Red Striped Sailboat Tee

I recently made an order on Olive Clothing; which included this super cute red striped tee embroidered with lots of little sailboats. This is currently my new favourite fashion website. All their clothing is right up my street. Think nautical stripes, loose oversized tees and vintage pinafores!

Aussie haircare mega shampoo and conditioner

2. Aussie Hair Shampoo and Conditioner

When it comes to taming my ridiculous mane, Aussie haircare is the only product for me. Usually I'd stick by their 3 minute miracle products, however recently I've been testing out the MEGA range for everyday cleaning and conditioning which is giving my hair a really smooth finish, and it great at teasing out my hidden knots. 

May Nailbox review

3. Monthly Nailbox Goodies

I received the May Nailbox (*) to try out, which included the below four nail polishes and nail tool;

Elegant Touch Cuticle Pusher & Nail Cleaner
ORLY Fiery Orange Color Blast nail polish 
Rimmel Lucky Lilac nail polish 
Nicole by OPI Modern Family Alex by the Books nail polish 
Essie Status Symbol nail polish

I think this is great for nail lovers as at only £15 per month your definitely getting at least double your money's worth with these well known branded beauty products. My favourite is the Fiery Orange ORLY nail polish - this is definitely a bold colour I would wear. 

4. Arden's Petites Range

Recently I have had the pleasure of munching on a selection of sweet delicacies from Arden's Petite range (*). These are the perfect accompaniment for dunking into a hot chocolate or a sweet treat with your cup of tea. To my dismay the only sweet treats of this range I haven't tried are the crunchy macaroons which I'm sure would be my favourite. Out of the above, I've definitely been loving the 'toffee waffle bites' the most. 

5. ASOS Sequin Top Of Dreams

I recently attended the AccessAllAsos event (you can see the post here) and was given the opportunity to pick a beautiful piece from a clothing rail of pastel beauties. I choose a lush candy coloured sequin top; however they didn't have it in my size, so instead I was gifted with this purple sequined beauty (*). Its definitely love at first sight. Oh how it shimmers!

I'll be showing off in a style post soon - watch this space. 

6. Home Comforts

My weekly home comforts currently include getting home, browsing through the pages of a interior magazine, burning my favourite vanilla scented candle and refreshing the room with a bunch of fresh blooms. 

7. 'Pink Bikini' Shellac Manicure

For my latest gel and shellac manicure I opted for the shellac colour 'Pink Bikini' - this shade is bold and brilliant and also quite girly - which I love. It looks great paired with my favourite Pandora black stone ring. 

8. Saturday Mornings Blogging In Bed

I had a rare Saturday morning to myself so ended up doing a little bit of blogging and browsing in bed. I also made a relatively big purchase on Olive Clothing - maybe this is why Saturday mornings on my own are dangerous. No-one to curb my spending habits! 

9. Smoothies With The NutriBullet

This week Alex came home with a NutriBullet, a impulse buy. To me this was great, as we live together, so what's mine is yours and all that jazz. For the past couple of days I've been experimenting with smoothie after smoothie. A quick wizz and its all blended.

My smoothie mix of the week was definitely spinach, a handful of strawberries, handful of raspberries, half a banana, topped with some apple juice and ice. 

10. Amazing Food In The New Forest

This weekend I stayed at the beautiful Careys Manor and Spa country hotel. We were wined and dined and treated to a fabulous meal, which you can see above. Visually pleasing and great tasting - that's definitely the way to my heart with food. I'll have a full blog post of my stay coming later this week.
