Forget the eggs and have a Baker Days Easter cake

I know I’ve probably said this a million times, as has everybody else, but… where is 2016 going?! Easter is just a week away, and with Easter comes lots of chocolate in the shape of rabbits, chicks and, of course, a good old fashioned egg. But what if you fancy something different this year? What if you and your family have decided to mix it up for a change? Well then, Baker Days can definitely sort you out… I first came across Baker Days when I reviewed one of the cakes from their Christmas range (needless to say, it was…

A Lush Spring Goodie Bag and Haul

You may have seen that recently I was lucky enough to attend a blogger event at the York Lush store, where not only were we lucky enough to view the new Spring range in action with some fab demonstrations, but we also had the chance to win prizes. And as if that wasn’t enough, each blogger was lucky enough to take home a goodie bag with four spectacular products, so today I’m gonna talk you though everything I brought home with me that night, from my incredible freebies to my impulse buys. I’ll start by taking you through the wonderful…

Unicorns, Doughnuts and Sparkles: A Coconut Lane Wishlist

A company that responds with “Think unicorns, mermaids and Mean Girls, add a touch of marble, a sprinkle of glitter and a pineapple on top” when asked to describe what they sell is definitely a company that is set to go down a storm amongst bloggers, right? So imagine my delight when I stumbled across the company that did exactly that. Say bonjour, hola and hello to the wonderfully cute Coconut Lane! Pretty delightful, right? So then imagine my further delight when they offered to give me my very own discount code for my faaabulous followers and readers to use…

Stepping into Spring with the Lush York blogger event

Once again, Spring is upon us, and with Spring comes a new range of wonderfully colourful Lush products. The store in York took this as an opportunity to have their very first blogger event to which a few lucky bloggers were invited (yes, even little old me!). I had an incredible time at the Lush Hull event last year, so when Lush York contacted me to invite me to a fun-filled night of bath bombs, luscious scents and great company, how on earth could I refuse?! After catching the train to York, the evening didn’t get off to the smoothest…

15 Things I Lie About (Almost!) Daily

Day to day, we are faced with opportunities to either tell the truth, or to tell a fib. I have a confession to make: I’m a big fat liar. I tell a lie pretty much every single day, mostly to myself. And you probably tell a few porkies too. Don’t agree? Have a read of my little white lies and see if they change your mind! “Just five more minutes in bed.” Let’s face it. That’s just an outright lie. I’ll probably snooze my alarm another 5 times. “Wow, I’ve totally nailed the winged eyeliner today… sort of.” Well, I…

Getting Lost in a Good Book: “Four Fictional Worlds I Would Love to Live In”

It’s Fridayyyy, and today I am over the moon to be part of the blog tour promoting A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab. This is a sequel to the incredible A Darker Shade of Magic, and I cannot wait to stick my nose into my nice shiny copy. In the mean time, I’ll be finding out which fictional worlds V.E. Schwab would most like to live in, and I’ll be ending the post by telling you how to get your hands on your very own copy! So lets find out was V.E. Schwab had to say… “This is tricky,…

What would I buy if I were to win £150 to spend at Brand Attic?

  I feel like Spring is finally here, and a change of season deserves to be accompanied by an upated wardrobe, right? But, if you’re anything like me, lack of funds will be limiting just how much you could update your wardrobe. Well, fear not my fellow friends, because I have come across a wonderful competition by Brand Attic where you can win £150 to spend on their site! Amazing, right? All you have to do is fill in your details (it honestly takes about 30 seconds!) and sit and wait with your fingers crossed! I’ve been browsing the site…

The Yummiest Way to Eat Your Photo

It’s no secret that I love cake. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: when someone says cake, I immediately want cake. I can’t help it. Seriously. I’ve been known to even munch on cake for breakfast, and so imagine my delight when I had the chance to receive a box of cakes complete with my logo on the top. Eat Your Photo were on the lookout for bloggers to review their yummy goodies, and quite naturally I was quick to respond and let them know that I, Ashton Gibbs, would love to play cake tester for them.…
