5 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately

•Features gifted items•

I haven’t put together one of these posts in ages, so I thought what better time than at the start of the school holidays when the kids, and Ed, are off school and I have a bit more time on my hands to enjoy those things I have been loving lately.


I was recently sent over two new CDs from the NOW Music collection. Both Summer Party 2019 and 100 Hits Car Songs are perfect for summer garden parties and road trips, and I have been listening to them whilst I work to get myself in the holiday mood early.

Early Evenings at the Beach

Living in Bournemouth, a tourist hot spot, once the weather starts heating up the beaches get incredibly busy. We always avoid the main Bournemouth beach for this reason, but we also tend to head along either first thing in the morning, or late afternoon to beat the crowds.

I have really been enjoying the freedom of driving over to the beach after picking up the kids from school and spending a couple of hours down by the sea before dinner. We are so lucky to live where we do.

Candy Kittens Sweets

I’ve seen Candy Kitten sweets in the supermarket but never really knew what they were and whether I would like them. I was sent across a selection last week to try out, and I am a total convert. The sweets are delicious, especially the Peach flavour, and they are both gluten free and suitable for vegans, which is fantastic. I will definitely be picking more of these up next time I go food shopping!


I feel like all I have spoken about on social media lately is this TV show, but honestly, I don’t understand why there hasn’t been any hype for this show, which is currently on Netflix. My mum and I have been watching the show every week, and then binged the last 8 episodes (including 2 additional episodes, only available via YouTube) at the weekend, and oh my word was it good! If I had to sum it up, I would probably say it was a mix of action, sci-fi and history all mixed in together. I am watching it all over again with Ed now and I am loving it all over again!

STABILO Brand Ambassadorship

I was asked if I wanted to work with STABILO UK as part of their brand ambassadorship a couple of months ago and I love it. I have always been a big fan of the brand, and it is amazing to be sent across stationery regularly, to enjoy and share with the children and Ed. We are all big stationery lovers in our house, and I have really enjoyed creating images for social media for this partnership.

Some of the items mentioned have been gifted, however, there was no obligation to post, and all words and images are my own.
