A few guilty pleasures

Blog recent favourites and guilty pleasures
Sometimes the rainiest day can be just what you need, so soothing and the perfect excuse to slip away, escape from every day pressures and immerse yourself in some kind of fairytale. Involving a book that whisks you
away, wearing your prettiest outfit for no reason, a hot drink in that mug: those magic things that make you feel powerful, invincible and totally in your element. Those simple moments are the best, especially soothing, and often helpful when you've been struggling to find your identity or seeking to reconnect with yourself.

These Salted Caramel Expresso martinis from Hotel Chocolat are gorgeous, so aesthetically pleasing and taste even better. I'm funny in that I don't like alcohol on its own but I love it in foods; these contain a generous dash and it compliments them perfectly. Now I'm lusting after this Raspberry Ice Cream selector!

These pug pyjama shorts are so sweet! They were only £4 in Primark with a top included and are so comfy and perfect for lounging in in the summer months. Just browsing all the pretty designs in store is so therapeutic for me and there is something about new, fresh, never worn before pyjamas that feels amazing. "Like they built it all for us. I mean... just to think that tonight, when I crawl between the sheets, I'll be the first-" Trudy, Titanic film. That childlike sense of wonder is so precious, I never wish to take things for granted again!

I have recently rekindled my love for this beauty! It feels so soothing, nourishing and somehow doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I've heard so many good things about the Neals Yard Frankincense Intense Lift Serum too, I really want to try it. It sounds so dreamy and relaxing, the perfect home spa treatment, applying it sounds the perfect way to destress - I'm going to treat my mum to some for her birthday pr'aps she'll let me sample it

Are you a mug collector like me? My collection is fast growing, especially after spotting this darling Miss Etoile mug in the ASOS sale at half price. I also found a sweet little trinket dish to match! I have long swooned over everything Miss Etoile so was thrilled to find these in the sale; the perfect justification to buy them!

There is something so soothing about candlelight on a dark day. These vanilla ice cream scented tea lights are from IKEA and they smell like pudding! There are wondrous things you can find in a home department store! There are so many in a pack and I love to light them on my pink Hobbit hole-esque shelves for a cosy night in.

Baking kits and Moana are such a big guilty pleasure of mine! Sometimes you just have to make a mug cake because your heart/soul/belly/baby demands it and don't have time to break out the flour, the vanilla essence, the scales, the hand mixers. That's not to say you shouldn't add vanilla essence to everything do it do it.

 Let me know your guilty pleasures! How do you soothe your soul - and have you tried the Neals Yard Serum yet? Speaking of puddings, I'm hoping to try out a few old fashioned recipes soon featuring lots of vanilla

  3. The heart mug is so cute! Chocolate is also one of my guilty pleasures, that I like to have when I'm not feeling too well and need a pick-me-up. Naps area also a guilty pleasure - I don't take them too often, but when I feel super duper tired there's nothing better than taking time to do nothing and spend a couple hours in bed!

  12. My guilty pleasures are buying myself a lovely bunch of flowers (that costs more than £3, haha) and reading Cosmopolitan/Glamour! I am definitely a mug collector too, my fiance keeps moaning that our mug collection is out of hand now, but I just can't help myself! x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

  19. My guilty pleasure deff has to be trash television. It's one of those things that you know isn't real, and you know it really doesn't benefit your life in anyway and yet I still love watching it! xxx
