Hi everyone, I am back today with another Wonderful Things post; my little series where I share with you all of my current favourite moments and items.
Indulging in amazing chocolate
Anyone that knows me well would tell you I am a chocoholic - I have such a sweet tooth and chocolate will please me instantly. I am on a little bit of a health - kick at the moment but still do indulge very occasionally on a sweet treat. I was sent a variety of flavours of Belgian chocolate to try from the brand Coeur de Xocolat*. The chocolate is handmade and delicious, so sweet and creamy - a definite luxury chocolate brand! My favourite is the white chocolate. You can check out their amazing treats on their Etsy website here.
Braving deep & dark lipsticks
Nude lipsticks have been my go-to for the past few Months, but recently I have been a little more brave and daring and trying some darker and deeper shades of red, including my new favourite - Living Nature's new lipstick in Pure Passion*. I love this shade in particular as it is so dark but actually very wearable. The colour lasts really well on the lips too, I am quite a fan of Living Natures lipsticks as they are made from only natural ingredients.
I don't usually celebrate my Birthday all that much - but I had such a fantastic Birthday this Year. I went to see Busted in Concert with one of my oldest friends, it was brilliant and brought back such good memories. I spent my annual leave doing lots of relaxing and seeing my favourite people.
I also decided to treat myself to a coffee machine over my Birthday Weekend. I had been uhm-ing and ah-ing over buying one for a while, and picked the Nescafe Dolce Gusto Machine. I have been loving trying all the different flavours, my current obsession is the Chai Tea Latte.
As well as it being my Birthday recently, it was another family members Birthday which I usually find so difficult to shop for. I was kindly gifted a photo canvas* from Jessops; who recently opened a new store in the Birmingham/West Midlands area. The canvas looks so well - made and made the perfect gift for my family member. I think canvases like this one would be ideal for wedding gifts, or even a new home warming gift and Fathers Day which is just around the corner.
What wonderful things have you been getting up to recently?
