OLD ENGLISH CO. HAUL & REVIEW Skip to main content

MAY MONTHLY FAVOURITES

Isn't it mad that we're halfway through 2018 already, or as I like to think - halfway to Christmas again, haha! I'm sure I always say this, but it really feels like this year has gone by so quickly! May was a pretty good month, we had some gorgeous weather which always puts me in a great mood but I also find that when the sun is out, blogging tends to take a backseat which I really want to improve on over June! Anyway, here are my favourites for May!

Lifestyle
In my last favourites, I touched upon how I wanted to keep up with my Spring photography and like I just mentioned, we've been pretty lucky with the weather in May so that's something I've enjoyed doing a lot! It's been really lovely being able to spend more time outside and I've made the most of it by going on regular walks, it's a great way to relax and clear your mind and I've been able to take some great photos too!

There isn't really any new makeup I've been loving recen…

OLD ENGLISH CO. HAUL & REVIEW


For all you stationery and homeware lovers, I've got a haul that you're going to enjoy today! I recently shared a competition that Old English Company were running and looking through their site made me so excited to get some bits of my own! I sort of wish I was redecorating or moving into a new house because their stuff would be so perfect for that, anyway let me share some of the bits that caught my eye!

'Notes' A5 Notebook

For as long as I can remember I've been a hoarder of notebooks, mostly for my extensive list making! Since starting my blog I've used notebooks to plan blog post ideas quite a lot and I had started to come to the end of the one I'd been using so it was definitely time to get a new addition! It's great quality and I also really like the simplicity of the design too. 

Grey and Gold Planner

Being organised is something I'm always trying to improve, I would say I'm fairly good at it but hey if a planner can help even more then who can say no! I love writing and planning so this is definitely something I'm going to get a lot of use out of, it did take a while to choose which colour I liked best though! I loved the pink one and the pearlescent writing on the black one but grey is one of my go-to colours at the moment and if I was ever redecorating then grey would definitely be a part of the colour scheme!

Monstera Leaf Keyring

Tropical leaves are definitely popular right now and I'm totally into it, I think they're so pretty and this dainty keyring is no exception. I was on the lookout for a new keyring to jazz up my keys a bit and I think I've found an ideal one here!



'Fancy A Cuppa' Mug 

In the past few years, I've started drinking more and more hot drinks - mostly tea because it's just the best but anyway, this means I've been needing more mugs. Actually, that's a lie, I have loads of mugs but most are ones I've had years, a lot are from Easter eggs haha! There are so many mugs with cute, funny and relatable quotes on the website but this particular one stood out to me most and I love the calligraphy style font. Also, it's the perfect size for me too!

'There Is Beauty In Simplicity' Print

Now, this was actually just the thank you note that they put in the parcel but I really liked that they used one of their prints instead of it just being a plain bit of paper, it seems more personal in a way! Also, this quote is something I agree with for sure and the font is my sort of thing, essentially you get a free mini print! 



British Food Map Print

I am so obsessed with this, I just love the whole idea of it and can't wait to get a frame for it so I can put it up on the wall! Britain is home to many classic foods and this features almost everything you could think of, I also like that it's arranged in terms of location too. As a massive lover of food, this is something that's right up my street, I wonder how many things I've eaten on there! I just think it's so creative and would definitely look great in a kitchen or anywhere really as it's so simple but really effective!

'There's No Place Like Home' Card

This is actually a greeting card but I'll probably keep it and use it as a mini print as it's too nice to give away! The reason I picked this particular one out is because the quote is obviously very well known from The Wizard of Oz which is one of my all time favourite films ever. I've loved it from about 2 or 3 so as soon as I saw this I couldn't resist, I love the light blue and the design itself too so I just had to get it!



Overall I was really pleased with everything I bought, all of it so aesthetic don't you think! There was so many other lovely things as well from coasters and tea towels to pillow cases, enamel pins or pocket mirrors! It arrived really quickly and it is all great quality so is completely worth it if you're thinking of buying something! I'd actually really love to know if you've already got anything from Old English Company or if there is anything on your wishlist!

*Disclaimer: I was given a voucher for one of my previous posts which I used to get these items, all opinions are my own and I was not required to do this post.

BIRTHDAY TRIP TO LONDON

Last Saturday I turned 19 and to celebrate, my boyfriend kindly paid for a trip to London. So on the Friday we morning, we made the journey from our little town to the busy streets of city life. The journey actually went really quickly, (around 2 hours) though we were both very hungry when we got there!

We stayed in The Grange St. Pauls hotel which was absolutely gorgeous and I would 100% recommend it to anyone. The room itself was a perfect size - spacious but still felt cosy and the bed was super comfortable, something I was very appreciative after the long day! However my favourite part and one of the reasons I chose this hotel were the leisure facilities. The pool itself was amazing and it was so nice to be able to use it on the Friday afternoon and again on the Saturday morning before we checked out. There was also a jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a gym, as well as a spa, which you could book various treatments at. Unfortunately we didn't really use too many of these as most…

MARCH MONTHLY FAVOURITES

March is always a pretty busy time, it's known as the 'birthday month' in our family because between the 1st and 21st, 7 of us have celebrated our birthdays! This means that there is a lot of family time, a lot of presents and a lot of cake which is a pretty good mix - plus there are loads of things I've been loving this month so I'll get started!
Weather
Something I had to mention in this monthly favourites was the rather strange weather we had! We'd not had any decent snow since 2013 and then we had multiple snow days in March, so I think it's fair to say that Spring was delayed! I actually really like the snow, it's so amazing to look out at, especially when it is untouched! Although I did slip over on the ice, straight on my back...so that wasn't as great!

Fashion 

This month I have worn my denim jacket constantly, I don't know how I've lived without one for so long! Besides the random snow days, we've definitely had a few milder and m…
