SAY IT WITH PRESTIGE FLOWERS {REVIEW}

SAY IT WITH PRESTIGE FLOWERS {REVIEW}

Last week, I was sent a beautiful bouquet from Prestige Flowers. I adore fresh flower, who doesn’t? This particular bunch was made up of some of my favourites. 5 days into receiving them they are still very much blooming, which is always nice as there is nothing more dissapointing than flowers that only last a few days.

If you have not heard of Prestige Flowers they are an online flower delivery service based in the UK that pride thems on customer satisfaction. We are able to deliver flowers to every corner of the UK. They understand that flowers are an emotional and personal gesture, therefore the importance that the recipient is delighted with their flower arrangement is imperative, and our number one priority. …and all of their orders are backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee!

Once I opened the box, the bouquet was beautifully wrapped. So much so I didn’t want to unwrap them! I was really surprised that the bunch I received actually came with a vase to pop my flowers in. Also in the box was a lovely card and a flower care pack. It had instructions on how to care for your flowers and a packet of flower food. Basically everything you need is sent with the flowers, so all you need to do is read and follow the instructions and pop them in water! 

After receiving these flowers, I did pop online and have a look at the costing of bouquets. I was so surprised at how reasonable they were. The amount of flowers you get for you money I think is really reasonable. I would definitely use Prestige Flowers in the future. The website is always really really easy to use!

I was sent this bouquet free for the purpose of this review.

LIANE MORIARTY, CORRIE, ROAST DINNERS | LITTLE LOVES 36/52

LIANE MORIARTY, CORRIE, ROAST DINNERS | LITTLE LOVES 36/52

Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and thats a LittleLove round up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat.

I can’t believe how quickly this week has gone. I’ve been a rather busy bee with school clubs kicking off and after school events. I have managed to get myself into a routine now the children are back and I have managed to fit in so much. I’m looking forward to relaxing tonight with my homemade curry after the mammoth swimming lesson run!

Without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove

 

 

Lately I have had a real reading bug and I have been lavishing in some really good books. After Wilde Like Me I quickly started another book, Truly Madly Guilty. This is one I have been wanting to read for quite a while and whilst I was in Costco I picked it up at a bargain price. Its my first Liane Morality book I have read and so far so good! I have heard great things about this author so really looking forward to indulging in it.

 

 

My biggest guilty pleasure is Coronation Street. Its a soap I have watched for years and one I really like to catch up on. This week has been all about the Eva/Aidan/Maria wedding/affair saga. Its finally out, and as much as Aidan has completely messed up I do hope him and Eva sort it out. I really like them together. Anyone else have a soap guilty pleasure?

Wasn’t Doctor Foster good this week? I did find myself shouting at the TV several times! I can’t wait to see how it all pans out. Pretty sad it will be ending soon. Such a good programme. I really really hope the husband gets what for! I really don’t like him at.all.

 

 

This has played every time I have switched the radio on this week. Its literally been in my head all week so I had to share.

 

 

 

 

I have slacked this week on taking pictures. I did wear a new top I purchased a few weeks ago. Another baggy T-shirt, with a lovely embroidered print on. I am officially slowly moving over to Chelsea Boots. I have been hanging out on putting the sandals away but this week my toes did get rather cold on the school run. Summer is definitely over!

I have had to dig out my rain coat this week too. Why is it, it always rains either at school drop off or school pick up? I have been caught out so much with the sudden downpours and I end up looking rather dishevelled! I have made sure my coat has stayed in the car for such unfortunate events!

 

This section goes to Mr B. I bought a roast chicken for last Sunday but we didn’t get round to having it so I agreed I would do a mid-week roast dinner. I then forgot I had an event on at the school so I left dinner in the hands of Mr B. Now, Mr B does not cook. I do all the cooking. He works and I look after the home. I was  pleasantly surprised, it was very tasty and he will definitely be taking on roast dinner duties more often!

I have also made a few tweaks to the blog. Very minor, ones that probably will go unnoticed. But its so nice to have a tinker and a little freshen up. The main change is my font I use. Thanks to PicMonkey going to subscription only I have had to change it. The new editing site I use doest have the original font I liked. But I have found a similar one that fits well with the blog. The other changes, are colour and behind the scenes.

 

 

Last week I mentioned in my Little Loves posts I have slowly gone over to YouTube. Last weekend I spent most of Saturday morning trying to film a haul video. To say it dint go to plan is an understatement. I found it really hard and having the children at home made me more stressed about it. I am still very much nervous about it and I really don’t want that to come across in the videos. So I have decided to try when they are at school. Whether it makes any difference who knows!! I am going to try and film a few videos next week.

What ever your up to, have a wonderful weekend!

LIAR, SAM SMITH, VLOGGING | LITTLE LOVES 35/52

LIAR, SAM SMITH, VLOGGING | LITTLE LOVES 35/52

Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and thats a LittleLove round up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat.

What a week, its flown by and I am quite shocked I am late in posting this up! Normally I am prepared at least a day in advance! This week has seen us back fully in a routine and its rather lovely. I work better when I have a schedule to go by and although my blog schedule has been a bit hit and miss, my life schedule is back to where it should be!

Without too much waffling here is this weeks #LittleLove

 

 

Today I finished Wilde Like Me and I really really enjoyed it. Its left me wanting more from Robin, I fell in love with the character and I am still thinking to myself how is her life now? I know its a book but I was so pulled into it I started to think I was reading about a real person! If you have not read it or its on your pile, then don’t hang about, get reading! You won’t regret it. I am really looking forward to reading more from Louise Pentland {I am hoping she will be writing more!!}

 

 

 

I was a bot late catching up with Doctor Foster last week. Everyone seemed to be talking about in on the school run and I had to stand there with my fingers in my ears. I did finally watch it and OH.MY.GOODNESS. It kicked off with a corker of an episode, I think there is going to be so many twists and turns this series. Its very good, and episode two this week was brilliant. I did not want it to end.

Did anyone catch up with Liar? It was in ITV on Monday and it really had me gripped from the get go. It follows Laura Nielson and Andrew Earlham, whose initial attraction leads to a date that has far-reaching consequences on the couple and their friends and families, as secrets and lies are revealed. What do you think? Who do you think is lying?

 

 

Taylor Swift… Not her new song, which might I add is quite catchy. Last week I went to bed. I was so tired, I vaguely heard loud music. Thinking it was a car outside I turned over and fell straight back to sleep. Again I was woke up by more loud music. I thought maybe someone was having a party. It went off quite quickly so I hazily fell back off. It wasn’t until the third time I heard loud music did I realise It was G’s stereo player, blasting out Taylor Swift – Welcome to New York. She was trying her hardest to turn it off. Randomly it went into alarm mode and kept going off every 10 minutes!

Also, I have been listening to Sam Smith this week. He is back and better than ever. I adore him and loved his previous albums. Ive had his back log of music playing in the background whilst cooking.

 

 

 

I am getting good at snapping what I am wearing. A second week in a row I have something to share with you! I manage to pick up this top in the sale for £8 and I love it. I am really into the baggy T-Shirt look at them moment and I feel really comfortable in them. This simple tee has had its fair share of wearing already!

 

 

 

I made a Vlog! Yep, I have made the bold move over to YouTube. I have done two videos. The first was last months favourites. You can tell I was really nervous, but hopefully I will get better with it. The second Vlog, was my snapshots and scenes for this month and I really enjoyed editing it together. Again, was my first edited video so its still quite basic. I know I can do better, so hopefully over time I will get a bit more experience and Vlog a bit more! Who knows.. I am planning to do a flamingo themed favourites as you all know I love a flamingo!

 

 

Mr B is working AGAIN this weekend so I don’t have a lot planned. G is at a birthday sleepover and I have promised H a sleep over in our bed. Sunday we need to go and buy new winter coats as the temperature has drop quite a bit. Another chilled weekend.

What ever your up to, have a wonderful weekend!
