Baylis & Harding Christmas gift guide 2017*

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is having a lovely December so far!

Some people may have already brought all of their Christmas gifts, others maybe half way through and some may be stuck for ideas. This is where I am pretty sure I can help you.

Baylis & Harding have some beautiful gifts that bring affordable luxury into everyone's life. They definitely have something for everyone.

Something for him...

Are you looking for the perfect secret Santa present? Maybe you are looking for the perfect stocking filler? This Baylis & Harding wash bag duo with Citrus and Lime goodies inside could be just what you are after! This would also be perfect for an 'extra' gift. 

This little gift comes with a hair and body wash and a aftershave balm. They are the prefect minis and smell so refreshing! The wash bag is a brilliant size for when he goes on holiday or for any trips away. You can buy this gift on Amazon for an amazing £5.95!

Something for her...

The next couple of gifts are perfect for secret Santa gifts or stocking fillers.

The first is the Baylis & Harding Midnight Fig and Pomegranate body wash. You can buy this on Amazon for just £4! It's the perfect Christmas scent to receive. I have to say the packaging is beautiful on this product, the colour scheme and design is perfect. If I received this I could imagine myself having a nice soak in the bath after the festivities of Christmas day and wash with this.

Another idea for a stocking filler is this cute little bath.

This golden bath comes with a 50ml shower crème and a 30ml body butter. The smell doesn't differ from shower gel to body butter, which is nice as you don't have a mismatch of scents. It is also such an invigorating scent. You can pick this little set up on Amazon for £9.79.

For a teenage girl (or someone into sweet smells)...

Teenagers can sometimes be pretty hard to buy for. The Baylis & Harding Beauticology Carnival treats perfect partners gift set is the perfect sweet treat. I mean, I'm 21 and I love the scent of both products.

This fun set comes with a 250ml tub of 'Sweet caramel popcorn' body butter and a 300ml bottle of 'candy apple' shower gel. I am quite funny with scents of body butters and I was a little worried about the sound of this one. However, when I opened it my first reaction was 'oh wow!' It is just the right amount of sweet for me. However, it could be a little too sweet for someone who doesn't like a strong sweet scent. When applied to the skin it's not as sweet as in the tub, it's actually quite subtle. I find myself lifting my arm to smell it.

Something for Mum...

Before becoming a Mum I used to wonder why these sets were so special. Now, I get it. It's pure bliss when you get to be able to pamper yourself with a lovely gift set. Especially when someone has thought of you and gifted you something to do so with.

This gift set comes 250ml of crème brûlée & cocoa body butter, 300ml of crème brûlée & cocoa refresing body cleanser, a body polisher and it is all presented nicely in a wicker basket that Mum (or whoever the recipient is) to put all of their pamper time goodies in. My favourite in this is the body butter, its so luxurious! You can buy this from Amazon for £16.68.

For the candle lovers...

I was blown away buy the packaging of this candle. Can we just take a second to appreciate how beautiful it is! This is pure Christmas luxury. You could even buy this for yourself as a cute decoration around the house.

Now you may or may not know I have a fear of candles, so I gave this to my Mum to light. Whenever I go past her bedroom, it just smells of Christmas. I am hoping she will bring it to the kitchen to light when she cooks Christmas dinner. This candle comes in at an amazing price of £13.25 and you can buy it from Amazon.

A home wear gift...

I love this Baylis & Harding hand was. Its is the same 'Midnight fid & pomegranate' scent as the body wash above. I feel this one is a little stronger than the body wash but it is not over powering. I love the Christmas design that carries through the Baylis and Harding Christmas range. It is nice that you can add a little bit of Christmas cheer to your bathroom with this had wash. You can buy this Christmas version from either Superdrug or Tesco which is on offer until the 2/01/2018 for £1.50. If you would prefer a bottle without Christmas patterns you can pick one up on Amazon.

Which gift is your favourite?

What Darcie Wore: Belle of the ball

Hi everyone,

Number 3 in the series (go me!) and we had a dress up day. This dress originally came from Disneyworld Florida. Obviously I have never been, so how did I get it? I picked this little beauty (and the beast, see what I did there?) of a dress up from a local Mum2Mum market and it only cost me around £3! Bargain!

So here she is:

Apyy Kids Co- Drink up*

Hi everyone,

So we are at the point in the year now when the little ones are starting to get a little bit restless. you might be trying to think about ways to try and keep them entertained or keep things fresh. Sometimes something little can make a big difference.

What about switching up their drink in their lunchbox?

Appy Kids Co have the perfect juice drinks. They kindly sent me over some of their tropical Minion juice drinks to try out.


They are so tasty. I don't know if you ever get a taste in your mouth, and whatever it is you really want to have it. That's what I kept getting with these. I would get a taste of them in my mouth and I would just have to get one to drink. They were a big hit with my family to.

No only are they so tasty but they are healthy to. They contain Vitamins C, E and A, these all help together to make up a better immune system for little ones. The fruits used are green apple, orange, peach, apricot, banana, mango, passion fruit and stevia.

lunchboxes, ingredients

They also come in cool boxes. Each box has a joke and a spot the difference game. In a standard box you get 5x200ml pouches of drink.

Lunchboxes, box

You can buy Appy Kids Co products online from Ocado and Amazon. You can also find a list of in store stockists here.

These are definitely something that will brighten your little ones lunchbox, especially when they have their favourite character on them.

What do you put in your little ones lunch box?

Spider Crush Forage- Game Review (Android)

Hi everyone,

So I have never reviewed a game before, so this is something new for me. I love playing all sorts of different games. I especially love ones I can play on my phone or on a tablet, they are a great boredom buster for on the go.

The game I am going to review for you today is called Spider Crush Forage. This game is free (this game does give you the option to make in-app purchases) to download and is currently only available to Android users. You can download for free on the Google Play store. Also, if you are a spider lover, this ones for you.

I love puzzle games, so when I found out about this I was really excited to try it. It is really quite addictive by trying to complete the level with the amount of moves given to level up. Also, if you can't complete a level and you loose your lives, it keeps you coming back to try to complete the levels. There are 50 levels to try and beat.

I love the colour scheme and the brightness. I also love that the sound effects aren't in your face. I love that when you make a good move or get a chain of good moves it says things like 'delicious' and 'tasty'. It makes you want to try and do those moves more as you know you are doing well. When you match more than 3 tiles, you get a special tile. The more squares you match the better the special tile.

Another thing I like about the game is the 'wheel of fortune' feature. Everyday it offers you a free spin. There are lots of good perks you have a chance of winning. There are prizes such as '+5 lives' and '15 seeds'. Seeds can be used to purchase more spins on the wheel.

There are a few areas for improvements from me. One is the spiders running all over the tiles of the game board. It can get a little annoying, but I guess this is part of the game. Another is that I would like the spiders on the tiles to be a little bolder and clearer. The last point I will make is, I wish it was available for Apple users, that way I can play on my mobile.

Other than that, I am hooked. I really enjoy playing this game.

Do you like puzzle games?

I hope you all have a happy Halloween!

What Darcie Wore: The beginning of something new

Hi everyone,

So a little while back I thought I would start a new blog post series called Darcie's Wardrobe. However, I only managed to do the one post. I am forever buying Darcie clothes and the sixes get all mixed up, my boyfriend puts the clothes away, or there is just far too much to even think about photographing for a post. Not only that, in these posts you don't get to see Darcie wearing the clothes. This is when I had the thought of doing a new series called 'What Darcie Wore'.

I love taking photos of Darcie in her clothes and every now and then I will do a photoshoot with her. She absolutely loves the camera, so I thought it would be a shame not to share some of these photos with you. Obviously, these photos are not professional, it's just me with my iPhone 7 (until I get a proper camera) and Darcie having a bit of fun. I will probably end up putting a few of these posts up a month or whenever we take some new photos. I currently have 3 sets to upload. 

For my first post Darcie is wearing:
