Mothers Day Inspiration ft. Lost Marbles Co & Superdrug!
Alert, alert! Mothers Day is just over a week away (6th of March more specifically, you're welcome)
Now I don't know about you, but I always find it quite difficult to scout out gifts for my mum, she's definitely the most difficult person to buy for... Well this year, Lost Marbles Co and Superdrug have very kindly sent me a few bit and bobs for Mothers Day to inspire us al! Let's take a look at what I've got...

First thing's first (I'm the realist...) is this Leafy & Lovely bath fizzer wrapped in this gorgeous mermaid-like material, finished off with a silky black ribbon! Presentation on point, and guess what's best of all? It's only £1... Great present to add to a mothers day bundle, and a fantastic alternative to Lush bath bombs. Find this in your local Superdrug store, or online here. 

Next in the beautiful Leafy & Lovely range from Superdrug is this twin set of lip tints, in these handy little tins. They provide a subtle hit of colour in pink and purple, and also moisturise. Perfect for mums who leave the house in a rush for the school run or work, and at only £3 who could resist? One for you and one for your mama, yep... Check it out, here.

Check out how cute & handy this little compact manicure set is?! Included in this Leafy & Lovely Mothers Day gift is a nail file, a cuticle pusher, nail cutters and scissors! A great item to pop in your work or travel bag, and so aesthetically pleasing... A hit for all mummy-bears I think! Check this out on Superdrugs website, here.

To top off this Leafy & Lovely set is this pedicure gift bag which is full of pampering goodies such as toe separators, a pink foot file, toe nail clippers, a nail brush and a cuticle pusher. This, like the rest of the range, is a fantastic price of only £3. Check out this item here and the rest of the Leafy & Lovely range at Superdrug here. They also do a candle and hand moisturiser in the same design! 

Now onto these amazing cards from Lost Marbles Co on Etsy... Kat, the owner, designs the most incredible cards for all occasions, and much like these Mothers Day delights, they are all hilarious! They're not like your typical cards from high street stores such as Clintons, and it's always great to support a small business and at only £2.75 a piece you'll be buying her cards for each holiday of the year! I can't wait to give these to my mum, her reaction will be priceless!
Check out these cards here;
- "Mum, thanks for squeezing me out"
-"Mum, you're the shit" 

I've also filmed a video showing these items on YouTube, so if you're more of a video person check that out below! 

Thanks so much for reading guys, do you follow me on social media? I'd love to connect to you!

Vegan Giveaway ft. Lush gift card, Nakd & Etsy Goodies!
Everybody loves a good giveaway, right? Especially when the prizes are vegan goodness such as Nakd bars, a Lush gift card, and other vegan goodies from independant Etsy sellers!
To enter the competition, the Rafflecopter giveaway is at the bottom of the page! Good luck, lovelies!
Here's the first part of the prize of this vegan giveaway! You all know and love Lush, right? Notorious for their incredible, colourful bath bombs, gorgeous smelling perfumes, and cruelty free make up. Lush is my go-to store for cruelty free bath, skin care & cosmetics, and I can never resist popping in there to grab a few bits. I absolutely adore Lush, and know you do or will too so I'm including £5 gift card for you to spend in any Lush store of your choice!

The second part of the prize for this competition are these yummy Nakd bars in Cocoa Orange and Banana Bread. These are my favourite snacks at the moment, and really helped me in my transition into vegetarian/and vegan. I often grab one of these for my breakfast, or part of my lunch and they give me so much energy! Cocoa orange is my favourite flavour! Three Nakd bars will be included in the prize bundle!

The third part of the prize is from the awesome Beauty & Beau who sell on Etsy, and I'm in love with their products! You can win this bumper pack from them, which includes Pong Gone: a spray for the toilet if you're having a poo, to mask the smell! A bath bomb and swirly soap, air & carpet freshener in a Kilner jar, Footsie: a foot scrub, and an exfoliator called Mother Scrubber all presented in a cute little bag! Check them out, here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/BeautyandBeau

Included amongst all of the amazing prizes above, the winner will also receive some sweet orange, organic vegan soap from Tuur & Mor who also sell on Etsy! Along with the soap (which smells amazing, btw!) you also get an organic coconut soap holder! (shown in picture above) 
Check Tuur & Mor out over on Etsy, here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TuurMor

The winner will also get this super cool Matcha green tea in lemon flavour from Pure Chimp, who stock their healthy products on Etsy, too! Whether you're a big fan of Matcha tea, or would like to try it out, enter the giveaway below to be in with the chance of receiving one or check out Pure Chimp on Etsy and grab some for yourself, here! https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/PureChimp

 Chocolate is just the best, and when it's vegan chocolate, it's even better! Ethicoco have an amazing range of chocolate treats, all hand crafted with natural ingredients. I've tried the Latt√© flavour, and I absolutely love it! Such a rich, intense flavour! Two large bars in Peruvian dark and Strawberry white chocolate are included within the prizes of this huge vegan give away!
Check them out on Etsy, here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Ethicoco

And last but not least, some gorgeous vegan jewellery! Up for grabs is two Vegan bracelets, one white and one black, and the 'V' symbol necklace, hung on a black faux suede cord. Live up to that stereotype of telling everyone you're a vegan, show them your vegan jewellery and use finger symbols accordingly ;)  haha! Check both Etsy shops, here below!
