October 2020 Beauty and Food Haul

Spontanious shopping trips are always the best and I recently picked up some new bits, make-up and sweet treats which are both of my most favourite things.
I wanted to stop by at Hema because it has been way too long and I kinda saw some things on their instagram that I wanted to try and then my next priority was to stop by at Krispy Kreme because they have released some limited edition and super cute Halloween doughnuts! *Heart eyes* Oh yeah and then I visited the most instagrammable dessert parlour - Haute Dolci and I bought a box of their macarons.

You get six macarons for £8 which I think is a pretty good deal, also how cute is the pastel pink box. Macarons are so addictive and I definitely recommend it! I chose the flavours: Coconut, Raspberry, Strawberries and Cream, Cookies and Cream, Chocolate Hazelnut and Strawberry and Chocolate.

How cute are these guys?! I so wish that these were available all year round! I always try to  buy the limited edition ones since they are so extra! Haha. My favourite ones out of the three were Frankie (the green one) and Wolfie (the brown one). Have you tried this year's collection? let me know in the comments I would love to know!

Lastly, I wanted to visit Hema to check out their stationery, halloween section and most importantly the make-up!
Now I didn't know Hema launched their own makeup line called BAE and I was amazed at how pretty it all looked. It really reminded me of Glossier products too! The white and baby pink colours and minimalistic packaging. I have tried Glossier products before and I loved it all so it will be interesting to see how these perform. I also picked up a new handcream for my purse and a new lipgloss which was reduced! I love the colour of it and that it's in a tube form.

Reviews of these products will be posted soon.

So here was my little haul! Have you been to Hema before?

Miniature Munchies Sweet Treats* Review

My first edible pr/gifted item and how cute is it?! Miniature Munchies are a homemade UK based confection company and they specialise in making mini sweet treats, bitesize potions of really popular desserts. Read on to see some photos and my thoughts/review!

I love how unique their products are, I haven't seen anything like it and I was so happy to choose and taste one option from their very big menu! I opted for the popular rainbow cake but there are so many flavours to choose from. The menu is split into three sections: Classic, Fusion and Boozy. Everything from Coconut Ice to Baileys Original.

These are perfect to gift someone very special or as a treat for yourself. These would make great party favours too! The package was super cute! It fitted right through my letterbox and all of the treats stayed intact. The package had a menu card with ingredients listed and the sweet treats were wrapped in plastic wrapping.

Now onto the taste test... Guys! These were amazing! Tasted just like a slice of rainbow cake. Infact it felt exactly like I had eaten a cake slice but without the guilt haha. These bitesized beauties were super moist, soft and melted in the mouth. Just the right amount of sweetness and the vanilla flavour was perfect. They didn't last long either, one led onto the next but atleast the pictures will last longer.

For a box from the classic collection, it only costs £4.10 and it even includes postage and packaging. Delivery is quick and it can fit through your letterbox so you don't have to wait around for the postie. Do check this unique company out, you will not be disappointed.

Check out Miniature Munchies on their social: Facebook and Instagram.

Thank you so much to Miniature Munchies for this collaboration. One classic box was gifted for a review.

Autumn/Winter Fashion with Katch Me*

Hi lovelies! Hope you all are well! I have an exciting fashion collaboration to share with you all today! So I was recently contacted by Katch Me to see if I would like to review some of their new autumn/winter pieces and of course, I jumped at the chance. I was allowed to choose three pieces from the website and there was quite a range to choose from. I am really happy with all of my chosen pieces.

Katch Me are an online fashion store that stocks up to date fashion trends at very reasonable prices. They are UK based and they stock everything from cozy loungewear to shoes! They are always offering very good deals and they currently have an amazing 50 percent off with an extra 20 percent off, just remember to use the code 'LAUNCHDAY' oh and they are currently charging just 99p for standard delivery!!! Say What!

As soon as I saw this I instantly had heart eyes. This long cardigan is so me! I love the colour, length and fitting. I chose the 10/12 size which is showing up as a M/L size on the size. I was amazed at how thick this was. Feels so snug and made of good quality. I love how you can throw this on and look great! Perfect for days when it isn't so cold outside and you don't want to wear a coat. I will definitely be reaching out to this, since this can go with anything. The added pockets on either side is a great help. Really love this and for now £19.99* so worth it!

What a gorgeous blue! This teddy coat was so comfortable on! I chose this one because I love how the fabric just drapes in the front, there are no fastenings or pockets but I like that in some tops. I wouldn't call this a coat though, felt more like a warm fleecy jumper. The length is shorter than what I would normally go for but this can work so well with my other clothes. Another piece I can reach out for when it isn't that cold. It is currently out of stock on the website and it is at the moment only £4.99! I went for the same size in this too! M/L and I felt that it fitted well!

Hello cosy vibes! Ok so I'm not going to lie, this is by far, my most favourite out of the three. I have already been wearing it indoors and it's super soft! This is also available in pink! If you know me well, you would of thought that I would of chosen the pink, shocking I know but this teddy bear brown colour really attracted me more! It literally feels like I am wearing my winter dressing gown. The wrists are elasticated which gives it a nice touch and there are also pockets! Big enough to fit my phone! The hood makes you feel extra snug, perfect for lounging in! This is an oversized fit and when it come to clothing like this I always size up to the max so I opted for the XL in this. Everyone needs to own this! It's only £19.99* at the moment too! 

I was very impressed with the quality of the clothes and the fast delivery but one thing that needs to be improved is the sizing. The sizing only ranges from S to L, only a handful were sized up to XL like my brown hooded teddy jacket. If the sizing range was huge, it could reach a bigger audience. Other than the sizing issue, I really liked all of my pieces and I would recommend Katch Me to everyone! Have a look on their website am sure you will find something that you will like.

Hope you enjoyed my first proper fashion collaborative post!
