Tucking into the Vegan Menu at Cosy Club

Disclaimer: This is a review of my complimentary vegan meal at Cosy Club Coventry.

We were sitting at the Cosy Club in Coventry, and I realised that I had been staring at a painting for at least a minute before I slipped out of my daydream. It was our second time being invited to try out a new menu, the first being at Christmas, and this time we were trying out their new vegan menu in celebration of Veganuary. I had just devoured my starter – ciabatta that I dipped heavily into olive oil and vinegar – and I was ready for my Vegan BLT. It sounded quite promising and I was looking forward to not having to pick off the fat from meat (yep, I am a huge nightmare when it comes to eating meat). I was in such a deep conversation with my hubby that I didn’t notice the waitress arrive with our platters of food, and my brain froze as she laid out the food in front of me.

Oh, Lizzie, you ordered a sandwich. You absolute tw*t.

Lifestyle Review: My New Husband

old english company, review, young couple

I have received a new husband; perfectly packaged in a grey suit, waistcoat and with the cutest smile. He was someone that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with, and seeing as it’s been a few weeks since I’ve received him I thought it was time to write a little review on my experience so far. You can get your own husband from ‘Man’Soon (found next to Accessorize), a brilliant place that I would highly recommend. So, here are my thoughts!

Cute Ways to Transform Your Desk Space (+ Giveaway!)

cute desk, kawaii desk accessories, kawaii box review

I have never been known to have a tidy desk. You’d usually find it drowned under masses of paper, sketchpads, books, with my phone somewhere amongst the mess. It wasn’t until I moved in with my love that I wanted to put more of an effort into making my desk space really cute, and I try to do the same at work. So I’ve put together a list of cute ways to transform your desk space if you’re a lil’ bit stuck on what to do.

Highlights of 2017

You know that saying “blink and then it’s gone”? Well that’s what 2017 felt like to me. I blinked, and now it’s the end of the year and I have no idea how I got here. There were a few things that made 2017 amazing, and seeing as I didn’t do this last year (such horror) I couldn’t miss out on doing one this year, so here are my highlights of 2017!

And, Breathe

Life passes by so quickly that sometimes it’s nice to just take a step back for a moment, breathe, and then think, “what the hell just happened?!” I was having one of those moments the other day where I was feeling overwhelmed by everything that’s been going on and almost had a complete meltdown… But as if by some magical force, my package from Modes4u* arrived a week later which contained a super cute Rilakumma cup. So I scheduled a time out, slipped into my onesie and made myself some hot chocolate with marshmallows.

And here we are. So, let’s have a little catch-up, shall we?

I’ll Take You To The Candy Shop… Japan Candy Box Review!

Japanese sweet, Japan Candy Box, yummy candy

One of the best things about Japan are the sweets, so when Blippo’s Japan Candy Box* for September arrived at my doorstep I was bursting with excitement. I was good, though, and didn’t immediately open it but waited for the weekend to arrive before I gently lifted up the lid to take a peek inside and boy there was a lot of candy. There was no way I could eat all of it! So I asked my other half to help me out and we spent the afternoon chomping on all of these sweet goodies.

Basic Witch

Dress from Tobi*

There’s a time in everyone’s life where they dabbled in a bit of magic. I was just starting out in secondary school (so around 13 years old) when a sparkly blue cover caught the corner of my eye, and upon pulling it out from where it was crammed on the library shelf I discovered that it was a beginner’s guide to white magic (aka Wicca). It didn’t take me long to check it out and for several months after I was obsessed with it when, like the typical teenager I was, I got bored and it was left to gather dust on my bookshelf.
