Elomi Bijou Flirt

Once again Elomi have killed it with this stunning Bijou Flirt set. With the thin strap detail that cradles my curves and keyholes around my navel, it definitely lives up to its name!

I’m wearing a size 38GG and it’s a perfect fit. The briefs are generous in size but maybe a little low in the waist to what I’m used to but given the detailing, I’m happy to overlook that. You can find Bijou Flirt here  x

The Decanting Club

Now, I’m more of a food than a wine lover but I do enjoy the odd glass in the evening every so often. And adding to that, I’m a pretty safe bet, sticking to what I know and like as I’ve never really explored different wines. Of course, they vary from every aspect such as grape variety and region they’re grown in. And although I’m not looking to boost my knowledge in such areas, I was keen to try out new things. I’m always a little envious of those I know that have a vast knowledge of wine or have found a rare gem that they keep stored away, rather than me who usually picks up something white and is on a supermarket offer.
This is where The Decanting Club stepped in. This amazing company sent me a weekly glass of wine, through my letter box, for me to try, with all the information I needed to know, such as perfect foods to pair it with, without the need to leave the house! Bliss!

The Decanting Club offers its members a new wine to sample each week, with the option of buying a full bottle or case. Of course, I loved having a glass of ‘surprise’ wine dropping in to my doormat each week for me to try but I also really enjoyed learning about the various techniques involved or the grape variety for that particular wine and seeing if I could successfully pick up the taste notes.

The weekly wine subscription could even be purchased as a gift. Perfect for those family members that seem to have just about everything!

B Block Pizza Launch

Earlier this month, we got to see the launch of the new B Block Pizza in the newly developed Chocolate Quarter in Keynsham which stands on the former Cadbury’s Chocolate factory site. 
This stylish new pizzeria is open throughout the day, serving up breakfast and lunch and dinner and although boasts an impressive pizza selection, they offer much more. 
Pizza chef Ben, formerly of award winning pizza restaurant Flour & Ash, and his team have created an amazing pizza menu that I was fortunate to try. 

Here are just a few that was on offer 

B Block only use the freshest of ingredients in their cooking and with the vegetables and meat coming from Bristol based suppliers and the flour from Gloucester, you are guaranteed that what you’re eating is as fresh as it can possibly be! 

B Block are open 7 days a week but do close at 9pm Tuesday-Friday, 4pm Monday and Midday Sunday due to being located in a residential building. 
You can find them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @bblockpizza

What A Treat! With Manon Baptiste at Navabi

It's not often I win competitions but last October, I was lucky enough to win a £200 voucher to spend with Manon Baptiste at Navabi. With it, I purchased this little beauty!

I'm so in love with the side leg pleats, drawstring waist and the fact it's knitted makes it perfect for Autumn. I added a cute clip on velvet bow to the waist and felt like a Christmas gift! You can find the jumpsuit here but it's in the sale and sizes will be limited x

Ain't no Sunshine- OOTD ft Pink Clove

Sometimes you need to get stuff done, come rain or shine! Giving you a little run down on today's outfit.

I'm all about filling my winter wardrobe with basic staples. Soft jersey tops in an assortment of colours are just perfect for layering up an outfit and my favourite are these from Yours Clothing. A pair or 2 of patterned trousers that can make an outfit pop, like these Ericka Gingham trousers from Pink Clove. If colour isn't your thing then work in statement accessories like this fab leather tassel choker from AliExpress.

I've Gone (coco)Nuts for Ape Snacks

I've recently discovered these delicious snacks from Ape. A range of coconut goodies that are gluten free, high in fibre and vegan friendly too! With flavours such as Slightly Salted, Pepper and Spices and the more unusual, Salted Chocolate, they are far from what you'd expect when it comes to dried coconut. What's more, you won't find any nasty chemicals here, meaning I'm happy to give these to my kids knowing they are eating well.

As well as the dried curls, there's also three varieties of crunchy bites too. These little discs pack not just crunch but tonnes of flavour too. Sweet and coconutty as you'd expect, but also slightly savoury and very moreish! 

You can find these coconut Ape Snacks in Holland & Barrett, Ocado, Boots, Whole Foods Market, Harvey Nichols, Planet Organic or you could buy online from their home page here x

Kicking off Autumn with In The Style Curve

In The Style are killing me right now. It's such a good feeling to go to their Curve section and find a load of stuff that I want on my body. In fact, I don't think there's anything I wouldn't wear and that's a pretty big deal!

Dressed down and in need of some comfort for a food based event, I went for this simple sweater dress with rose embroidery details on the sleeves, with the camo oversized jacket on top. I love that the sweater dress was pretty thin, it's not your average thick, fluffy backed sweatshirt material more of a thick cotton/ thin jersey. I get way too hot most of the time so it's just ideal for me. Same goes for the coat. It's not lined and relatively lightweight, making it perfect for layering. 

How are you transitioning your wardrobe this Autumn? X
