Whittard Chelsea in Leicester

Hello beautiful people!

I am really excited but also very scared… Whittard’s has opened in Leicester Highcross!
I spotted it at the weekend when I was supposed to be going town with the lover to pick up contact lenses only… I am sure you can guess where I spent some of my money!

I had to  get a few treats! I couldn’t say no!

It all started when I spotted a variety pack of the hot chocolates. I had wanted this set since seeing it on QVC UK at about 3am one morning! Just one of those things you kind of forget about! This was £22 – yes I know…. £22 on hot chocolate!
120g each you get 6 flavors including: Rocky Road, Luxury Hot Chocolate, Mint, White, Salted Caramel (one of my favs) and Orange flavour!


To get me past the £25 threshold I ended up getting a Latte Macchiato spoon. This was £3. It comes with mini marshmallows. I was a little worried it would taste too coffee like, gosh was I wrong. It was a lovely creamy drink. Realistically you can’t bulk by these and have a drink at £3 a pop… but for a special occasion its really worth it!

Then I spotted a big tub of the marshmallows. Ok this is where I started getting carried away. The mashmallows were £5.50!!!! eek! I can get a tub from Aldi for £2!
They are lovely though and just the perfect size!

Finally I got a tasty freebie. As I spent over £25 I got a free gift which is actually pretty awesome. A tin of teas all from the Wellness Collection. This should be £15! so what a awesome gift. It holds 32 individually wrapped tea bags. Flavors include: Super Fruits, This Rocks Detox, Cleanse Tea & Sleepy Tea.


I already have my eye on the cutest ‘personal’ brewing teapot!
If you haven’t tried Whittards before I would suggest trying the hot chocolate this Christmas! If you are a fan of tea I would 100% advise popping into the store so the staff can advise on different tea options for you!
A personal Favourite Tea of mine is Milk Oolong tea (No 880)

Happy shopping! 🙂


Wheres Kirstie?

I am so sorry I haven’t been keeping you up to date on my arts, crafts and juicy things I have brought! In between being a bridesmaid, trying to have a social life, earning that ca$h money, maintaining a long distance relationship and not being disowned as a member of my family… I really do not have much time!

To keep you in the loop I have done a flash post to share a few little things I have been doing, brought and even completed….

First of all today…
I found myself running though the streets of Saffron Lane Estate in my Beauty & the Beast PJ’s… First off – Saffron Lane Estate isn’t exactly the most… (how can I put this nicely?) desirable of areas. Secondly I was in a frantic panic as my dogs had seemingly got out of the house and decided to go roaming the streets!
I know it is awful to say but there are lots of not very nice people out there at the moment who snatch up dogs for breeding (sorry puppy snatchers they have no balls), as well as using them for dog fighting. Luckily they were found at the top of the street after a lovely man saw them and tried to mush them back home!
Here is a cheeky picture of the naughty boys!20170523_133530_resized

Another exciting thing was my auntie got to go on holiday (with work). When I say with work… she is a carer for my brother who is on the severe end of the autism spectrum.
My auntie and grandma look after my brother for work. Nice to know that he is in capable and caring hands.
Tracey brought me back a little treat from the airport! Paco Rabanne Olympea! How I love this smell!
A very light smell very different to the Lady Million (which I also love) but subtle and wearable for everyday!


Another exciting thing was I went to my works Summer party which to be completely honest I wasn’t very hyped to go to. It ended up being a really lovely night with some amazing work friends. When I say lovely… I was on my way home at 11 as I was way to drunk to continue the night haha!


I posted about this little dress a while ago… It was sat in my draw unfinished and I  spend one Saturday night watching horror films and completing the final touches to my first ever pattern. I will be doing the written pattern when I get round to it but its all completed and I am pretty proud of my first creation by eye! YAY

Last but 100% not least I brought a travel wallet! I have an upcoming post and review on this as it so darn amazing! So I wont give too much away! Keep posted!


I am hoping you have all been well and have enjoyed the bit of warm weather we have had (UK friends)! Hope everyone else has had a lovely weekend! Back to the grind tomorrow!

Have a blessed day and lots of love !


10 Facts About Me…

Hello my little sparkles!

I have seen this challenge making the rounds on a few blogs so thought I would get on the bandwagon. I am going to give you 10 facts about me…
Then you can copy and paste this and share 10 facts about yourself!

So here we go…

  1. I am a full-time Retail Marketing Executive at Aurum Holdings for the Goldsmiths brand. I also graduated in 2013 with a 2:1 BA Joint Honours in Marketing and Media Studies.
  2. I am in a long term and long distance relationship of 8 years with my fiance Adam.
    We met in Leicester, he moved to Northampton while I studied at Northampton University. He then moved to High Wycombe and now he resides in Sunny Bournemouth.
  3. My biggest dream is to own an animal sanctuary where I take in abused and homeless animals, rehabilitate them and then find them a forever home.
  4. As some of you maybe aware from my blog I love crochet, painting and anything else which takes a dash of creative flair.
  5. I have lived with my grandmother and auntie for most of my life. I look at them equally as parents but also friends. They have done so much for me for so long – I only hope that one day I am able to support them like they have me.
  6. I have a severely autistic brother who is over 6ft. He eats like a bottomless pit yet he is very slender (why couldn’t I have that gene?).
  7. I am a notorious planner and time-freak. I am a constant worrier, even if there is not anything to  worry about (trust me I will find something).
  8. Malibu-Bay-Breeze is my favorite drink. Adam and I discovered it on holiday in Mexico. Malibu, pineapple juice and a dash of cranberry juice. Perfection.
  9. I have watched Fight Club over 30 times. I know all of the words off by heart. It is still my fav film of all time!
  10. I do not hate many things but what gets me angry is injustice.

Hope this has helped you get to know me a little better!
Of course if you are interested in knowing anything else about me feel free to message me or drop me a comment!

Can’t wait to read your 10 facts!

Lots of love and have a blessed day
