Confidence building. How to bring confidence into your life for 2020.

What is January other than an opportunity to start afresh! It is the time of year, that we are all praying for a fresh new start. We have the opportunity to leave any negative thoughts, feelings and experiences in 2019 behind.
My biggest new years resolution for this year is CONFIDENCE. One of the biggest things for me, and I know so many others.

we’re officially 5 days into January! the big 2020. I’m currently filled with positive vibes and a hell of a lot of motivation. I can’t wait to see what this year brings. I know a lot of things are happening this year for us both. So, I’m hoping to keep this up all of 2020! this is why confidence is so important to me right now.

So why is confidence so important?

Confidence has a massive impact on our happiness, and mental health. To be honest, though it’s a sucky business, honestly, it is. It comes and goes and sometimes is never there when we really need it.
Some are lucky, their natural persona is full of confidence with no issues, but it is not as easy for all of us.

So what should we be considering in order to make 2020 the most confident year for us all?

There are so many things that we can work on to help make this year go the way that we want it too. Confidence can affect the way we do things in life. I personally allow my anxiety and lack of confidence to win so often.

So today I am talking things to focus on that can help us build our confidence.

Confidence, new year, 2020
Rock it likes its 2020.

Remember your worth

This is something that is so important to each and every one of us, yet it’s also easy to forget. Now listen, You are amazing and you are beautiful. Everything about you is unique! and there is no other person on this planet that is an exact model of you! So take an opportunity to realise how valuable you really are!

Why don’t you try to make a list of things that you love about yourself! and write down exactly why you are an awesome person. Even if it includes things that appear to be silly like you like your hair or something like that. These things aren’t actually silly, there just as important to remember.
Look at the list every time you feel unconfident about yourself! and let the positive vibes work its magic.

Fake it till you make it?

This is a well-known phrase, and I do agree sometimes we do just need to fake it, literally. I am not telling you to fake who you are, definitely not.

Learning to be confident by practising confidence even when you do not feel it. It isn’t impossible, and nothing is. I believe the more you fake it the more you believe in your own confidence. I also believe in growing genuine confidence! that is a key thing. We are just learning how to get there.

Find your thing and pride your self on that.

We all have something, your thing could be anything… For example Blogging, social media, craft, athletics, fashion, makeup or music, It really doesn’t matter what it is. The fact is you have a thing that you are passionate about in life. and that thing makes you awesome! you could be a beginner but you are still rocking it! I know it for sure!

Finding what you are passionate about and using that to help your confidence grow. Whilst showing off your amazing talents. We all have something that not everyone will be into or good at. It is one of the unique traits we have. We can be confident at things that others won’t be.

So whatever it is you have. USE IT. Be confident in what you are doing, and rock it like you want to.

Record your progress.

Remember the last time you looked at photos of yourself from a long time ago? and Sitting there, reminiscing about how life was then to how it is now? Do you remember how good it felt? Seeing change?
Your progression is an amazing feeling and can grow confidence in your work and abilities. You are also giving yourself the opportunity to improve.
Recording your progression in tasks, and life can really help. Being able to see how far you have come, and what you need to do to go further.

whether it is taking photos of your work. or recording data of what you have done! having it led out in front of you can make a massive difference to how you see your own work.

Visualize yourself as the confident person you want to be.

it is no surprise, that sometimes in life we need to just take a break. We should use this time to imagine exactly what it is you want. Growing up and experience new things, impacts our decisions. Its how we choose to act on these decisions that get us to where we want to be.
Feeling unconfident can stop us from moving forward and reaching where we want to be. For example not having the confidence to attend an interview for your dream job.
So what can we do about it?

Take the time to plan what it is you want out of life. Visualise exactly what you want and how you are going to get there. We may still have obstacles to face but we can plan how we are going to deal with these.

Now tell yourself that you can do this! you are confident enough! Focus on your goals and go get them.
I would suggest creating something like a mood board. Focusing on what you want to achieve. You could create a mood board for any of your goals. Organisational skills can help your confidence whilst working on goals because you will feel more confidently prepared to face anything.

Doing things that scare you can build your confidence.

This may sound like an odd thing to say. In other words, why would you naturally put yourself in a position that you don’t want to be in, why? Because for each fear you conquer the adrenaline and positivity that this leads to that proud achievement feeling.
The feeling of you did it, it’s amazing and leads to your confidence blaring. Your confidence will naturally grow by you achieving things that are outside your comfort zone. It could be something small, but regularly finding things that are outside of your comfort you can grow your confidence.

Treat yourself to build your confidence.

Have you ever stood in the mirror having brought yourself new clothing and felt really positive?
Just by treating yourself and looking after your image and mental health, you already feel a bit more confident.
Treating yourself shouldn’t be considered as naughty! It is needed, so you are looking out for yourself.

keeping reasonable goals.

One massive thing that affects each and every one of our confidence levels is a failure. When we fail, we lose confidence in ourself and our abilities. It honestly happens to us all.
We all have aspirations and dreams that we want to reach, but we set our goals too high!

we need to break our dreams down into smaller goals, they need to be achievable. Goals that are too hard to become overwhelming and leads to the risk of becoming overwhelmed. Basically it all gets too much.
we need to set ourselves reasonable goals and that we know are achievable. Protecting our confidence and make our dreams a possibility.

positivity, confidence, positive

like I mentioned at the start of this post, confidence is a tricky and hard business. I promise you that I will be taking these steps this year to increase my own confidence. I believe the more my confidence grows, the more I will grow, mentally.
So, what do you think? do you have any other ideas that will help our confidence grow?

The stress levels are going up and we’re all trying to get prepared for the biggest day of the year, Christmas Day. We all have similar ambitions for a perfect Christmas Day. But picking the perfect Christmas gifts for our loved ones is not always the easiest and worse yet. We’re running out of time.

If you are done with your shopping how about checking out my 24 festive activities post, for some ideas to keep you busy this festive season.

So here’s my list of Christmas gift ideas perfect for your loved ones and easy to buy at the last minute.

Christmas gifts

Smellies are the perfect Christmas gifts.

Starting with a nice simple option. I’m sorry but really who doesn’t love getting a range of lovely Smellies for Christmas gifts. From Perfumes to bath things. I mean really it’s an essential day to day thing. I would definitely be happy with a set of bath bombs and things to use when relaxing.

Christmas Gifts in the form of hampers.

Hampers are such a lovely option. A bundle of small gifts but ones that are really thought out. A hamper is such a personalised option to go for. You can buy already made hampers in a range of places, but I would always suggest adding your own touch to these.

Something they can use for their hobbies.

Sometimes having a hobby can be so expensive. Especially for crafters like me. I am always needing (ok, wanting) new supplies for my hobbies. Craft and hobby supplies make the perfect stocking fillers, and you know for certain this will be very much appreciated by whoever you’re gifting them too.

Gifting a bottle of their favourite alcoholic beverage.

Since It’s Christmas and a time for cheer and to be merry, what best to get a drink to be drunk around the tree. Or of-course saved for later. But a bottle of their favourite drink is a lovely Christmas gift.

And! You don’t even need to spend tons of money on the stuff, there are so many different drink gift gets available.

Personalised Christmas gift.

Christmas gifts that have been personalised are just so thoughtful and kind. It could be a glass with their name or a specially printed photo. As long as it has been thought about and created with love, it will make a lovely gift for a loved one.

An experience

I actually believe that this is the best Christmas gift that can be given. Less materialistic but giving and sharing the opportunity to make memories, experience new things. From animal encounters to sky diving. There seem to be no limits to the perfect experience.

Gadgets & Gizmos

We all have gadgets on our wish lists in this day and age. Whether it’s a new phone, a games console or whatever technologies you know up your loved ones desire. You can always have one of these for the main present!

winter comforts Christmas gifts.

Finally, some winter comforts. I mean things to make your loved ones feel nice and cosy during the winter season. Slippers, candles, hot water bottles, blankets and comfy PJs. Everything you need to stay cosy.

Remember this though…

Christmas is only one day, it’s about family, friends, partners and memories. It’s not about who gives the best presents. Make sure you are not spending so much money you get yourself into debt, because at the end of the day. You can gift your loved ones any time of year.

Christmas activities: 24 festive things to get you in the Christmas spirit

As we move closer towards the end of 2019, Christmas is looming just around the corner and as the season is upon us it’s time to stop avoiding it! It is time to sit back and enjoy the festive feelings that this time of year brings. At this point, we should be enjoying the season and not worrying about it.

So now that we know it is time to get into the festive spirit however how does one actually do this?
For me, I absolutely love this time of year and I am completely determined to not let the lack of funds get in the way! So I thought I would share with you 24 activity ideas to bring on the festive spirit.

Get planning …

Christmas is the pretty much the busiest time of the year. So first things first, sit down with a notepad and your diary. write lists, plans and get everything down so you can get through it all.
I always say planning and prepping makes everything run smoothly, that and I love to be super organised, no winging it is going on in this house! that’s for sure!

Christmas Movie Night.

One of my favourite Christmas activities has to be an evening in bed. Or cosy up on the sofa with a bottle of wine, or even a hot festive chocolate, popcorn and the Christmas movies at our fingertips.

Since Christmas has its very own dedicated channel as well full of Christmas movies 24/7. There will always be something festive to watch.

Christmas crafts.

We started our Christmas crafts really early this year since we are planning to gift everyone homemade crafts, as a lack, we have a massive lack of funds available and so far it’s been working out, with only a few lefts to do. Leaving more time to craft some Christmas goodies for the day.

Handmade cards and gifts are so special and it’s amazing to receive something that has so much effort into. So get your crafty fingers ready and make your own presents, cards and decorations.

Christmas
My vinyl skills at Christmas

Spend an evening looking at Christmas lights.

Whether it’s a walk around your block or a trip around in the car, it’s lovely to use the opportunity to get out and see the effort that some people go to at Christmas, with their houses all dressed up. Twinkle lights, inflatable Christmas characters and even singing houses!

Enjoy a mulled wine & cheese night.

It is fair to say that most people love a cheese night. So grab a bottle of mulled wine (or if your feeling particularly creative cook some up yourself) and shove some cheese on a board, invite your besties around, and enjoy a festive evening of chat, Christmas foods and wine. Perfect, right?

I know that mulled wine isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so bring out the gin or even Prosecco.

Get baking and decorating, and make a Gingerbread House.

Is it really Christmas without gingerbread? The smell of mixed spices and cinnamon, the most festive aroma whilst it is being baked.

Decorating a gingerbread house and making gingerbread is so much fun and of course yummy.

You can read my favourite gingerbread recipe here.

Christmas markets.

For me, Christmas markets are a love-hate relationship. A festive opportunity to get some shopping and admire beautiful things on the stalls, definitely something to consider heading out too. My town of Southampton has a German Christmas market every year. It is definitely the atmosphere that the Christmas market creates that brings festive feelings.

The only reason I say I have a love-hate relationship towards a Christmas market is that they always seem to be slap bang in the middle of town. Bringing in even more customers to the shops making a Christmas shopping trip hectic and a little stressful.

Get the Christmas wardrobe going.

Festive, silly ugly, cute, different. Call them what you may but Christmas clothes like the old Christmas jumpers! who doesn’t own a selection of these to wear. Not just jumpers either. Leggings, dresses, tops and jewellery! Get it all out. It’s an opportunity to wear whatever you like. Even if you fancy looking silly dressed up as one of Santa clauses elves. No one’s gonna think twice! Perfect!

Christmas
This was last years

Putting up the Christmas decorations

I’m not gonna lie this year we have been slacks when it comes to some Christmas involved things. Normally As soon as we reach the 1st of December I am asking to put the tree up and the Christmas decorations out. we’ve finally got this done today. Spending ages to untangle the fairy lights, swearing at trying to get the branches to sit right, and trying to retread the strings that have broken off the. It takes hours, and sometimes we wonder why we bother since it’s all for one day.
But really, by having the decorations up twinkling away just has a pure automatic Christmas vibe. My favourite Christmas activity of them all.

Turn up the Christmas Music and wrap presents and cards.

Ok. Christmas present wrapping, it’s more of a chore right? You’ve gone out shopping spent loads of money and you are really pleased with everything you have brought your loved ones, but now you have to spend hours getting them all ready for the big day.
I am a lover of giving at Christmas but the wrapping, not so much the wrapping of everything. So, making a fun evening of it with the Christmas songs blaring. Or a film, whatever you choose can make the whole mountain of presents into a festive pleasant evening getting you right in the mood for Christmas.

Get the board games out of the cupboard.

Christmas time is all about family time in this house. So what could be any better than turning the TV off and getting the family interacting and chatting with some fun competitive things between one another?
One year for Christmas a lovely gift from my uncle was a guess the Disney tune where you need to blow the tune in to a harmonica. The memories made on that Christmas Day of my Nan trying to buzz out a tune will live with me forever. It was truly hilarious. I would definitely suggest a few games over Christmas whilst your family have been drinking. Honestly trust me on this one.

Light some festive candles.

Christmas definitely has a smell to it, right? I can’t be the only one to think so!

So by lighting some festive scents, be it candles or wax melts. Getting the house smelling lovely and Christmasy definitely helps the festive vibes. One of my favourite Christmas scents is Yankee candle snowflake! But you don’t need to spend lots of money on expensive candles, head to the pound shop! Or even home bargains, at this time of year they have plenty of winter scents in stock!

Christmas
What a beautiful elf workshop

visit your local garden centres.

I’m not the biggest fan of garden centres at any other time of the year, but as soon as we hit the Christmas month I can not wait to get to a few to see their Christmas displays. The garden centres seem to make such a massive effort when it’s Christmas, with beautiful Christmas walks, Reindeers to go and see, and decorations galore. I love seeing the shops all dressed up and totally Christmas galore.

Most garden centres will have things for you to go see, I honestly suggest this as a perfect activity for an age! Some you may need to pay a small donation for especially if your planning to take a trip to see Santa, but they’re normally so worth the money, we haven’t been let down yet.

At the beginning of this month, we took an amazing trip to Keydell Nurseries in Hampshire, you can read about this experience here.

Get some late night shopping in.

As it gets closer to the big day the stores give us more and more chance to spend our money! The best time is late night shopping hours, as the stores aren’t as busy as usual working hours. Plus it’s a perfect opportunity to go for a drink with friends and shop your heart out.

Elf on the shelf

Elf on the shelf is just the best, isn’t it? The past few years the elf on the shelf has become more and more popular in the UK. With Facebook being filled with peoples pictures of what their naughty elf has been up too.

I really wouldn’t say that elf is just for kids, although it is massively fun for them, adults love elf too, and if I’m honest, the elf’s who belong to adults seem to be even more naughty. Funny that right?

Even if you don’t have children to set up elf on the shelf for Kyle don’t have to be left out of this festive activity! Get your own elf and pose him doing naughty things to share with your friends! Why not hey?

watch a Pantomime.

‘Oh no she didn’t. Oh yes, she did’. Those famous words, as celebrities hit the stage this time of year to make us laugh. I am not saying that you need to spend hundreds on theatre tickets. at this time of year, there’s plenty of pantos being shown on the TV. There is definitely something about the pantos, that just screams festive.

This is definitely going to be one of my goals for our Christmas next year, I have been to Pantos before, and have even acted in one in an armature production of one, so I have got my heart set on the mayflower theatre next year.

spend time with your loved ones.

this is the time of year that we all make time in our busy schedules to see our family and friends.

It’s a given! It’s festive to spend time with loved ones is so take every possible opportunity to spend time with the people you care about by doing your Christmas activities with them.

Go ice skating.

I’m not the best skater but it just feels so festive to shove on some funny boots and making a fool of yourself as you confidently fall over on some ice. Perfect winter activity. Since it’s a cold-weather thing it’s the perfect excuse to grab a nice hot chocolate afterwards.

Participate in RAK.

Have you heard of RAK? It’s been around for ages and I have found that not many people have even heard of this. RAK stands for random acts of kindness. This is such a lovely way of spreading some festive cheer at this time of year by doing something randomly kind for a friend, neighbour or stranger. This could even be buying a homeless person some food or a hot drink and gifting it to them.

Consider how a small act of kindness could really make someone’s day. Hopefully, the person your RAK was for will follow on to do another act for someone else.

Make snowflakes and chains

Yes, I suppose that this should really come under Christmas crafts. But making snowflakes by cutting up shapes out of folded white paper. And making your own Christ chains is so fun and definitely a lovely decoration piece.
Also, snowflakes and paper chains have been a Christmas decoration for centuries. At one point families didn’t have flashy decorations or lights, so it’s nice to think some classic Christmas traditions are still being kept.

Read a Christmas book

If your a big book reader like me, then this is the perfect activity. Get in bed snuggle up and read a Christmas story, what a lovely way to get in the mood for Christmas. I always find that I get ideas for what I want to do at Christmas by reading stories

Last but not least… ENJOY Christmas.

It doesn’t matter if you are not yet in the Christmas spirit. Or if you are planning to leave it a few more days before you start thinking about Christmas, maybe your half and half. Christmas is not about how much your you have spent or if you have outdone it this year, it isn’t about what you receive under the tree. This is a season, it isn’t just a day, it is a feeling of festiveness.
So don’t get down by stress, it’s time that you can enjoy everything that you have been doing. I really think it is so important to remember that this is the most wonderful time of the year. Even if there are things that make you feel sad around this time, family and friends seem to always come together to be supportive.
The greatest thing is we have the opportunity to embrace and enjoy, so no matter what it is your doing this year to make your Christmas season special, enjoy every moment.

I would love to hear what your excited to get doing this season in the comments below!

Meet the bloggers – Talking with SarahTradeMark

Good morning guys! I’m very excited to be starting a variety of posts to meet the bloggers. The blogging world has such a big place in my heart. I have made so many friends and learnt so much of the community that I wanted to give back by sharing these amazing people with my readers. So I’m starting off with a fantastic blogger from Oxfordshire, Sarah who blogs at SarahTradeMark.

I won’t lie. I am absolutely envious of Sarah’s beautifully coloured Hair. If you are into vibrant colours as well I would highly recommend you take a read of this post. Which is one of my favourites from SarahTradeMark.

you can also find SarahTradeMark on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.

SarahTradeMark

I asked Sarah to share with us some advice from her blogging experiences…

1) SarahTradeMark, What made you start blogging?

It all started when I was using a new face mask and liked it so much that I wanted to share my views with others, I created a blog and started sharing short reviews on my current makeup and skincare products.

2) And What advice would you give to a new blogger?

Don’t compare yourself to others. There will always be people better out there but everyone is unique and you should concentrate on finding your own style.

3) Where do you see your blog ‘SarahTradeMark’ in 5 years time?

I hope to still be blogging and hope to be posting more good and household products as well as fashion. I want to keep the same style of writing but want to post about a larger variety of products.

SarahTradeMark

I’d love to say a massive thank you to SarahTadeMark for taking part in my meet the bloggers segment.

If you would like to take part in my meet the blogger posts. Please pop me an email for more information.

A Christmas woodland walk at keydells.

Since my post ‘here we are in November’ we have been getting so busy. With getting ready for Christmas and getting my business up and running, it has been chaos. It’s no surprise that we were super excited to start the festive trips. Keydells nurseries were no exception.
When it comes to Christmas, Garden Centres, are one of the most popular places to visit. As most centres make a special effort for the Christmas season.

Keydell is a nursery (garden centre) in Horndean, Hampshire. It is a lovely place to visit at any time of the year. However, we do make a special annual trip there for a Christmasy family day.

So what is the Keydells woodland walk?

Keydell’s woodland walk is a beautiful Christmas walk around with so much to look at all around you. The staff at keydell should be so proud of what they have created.

The woodland walk itself is under £5 per person, and well worth the money to get in at any age. You can find the ticket prices on their website here.

Each area is themed so differently to the next. It is very obvious how much effort the staff have gone into these displays. The sheer amount of detail, and imaginative stories these scenes tell.

Adorable characters that sing and move, the smell of tinsel, pretty tinkering lights, glitter. Everything makes this room feel festive. It is impossible not to be sucked into the Christmas excitement.
You can tell how popular the nursey is at this time of year. We were eager and took our trip on the 23rd of November. The whole place was already busy with plenty of people walking around seeing the magic of Keydell at Christmas.

Festive unicorn ^_^

If you are thinking about taking a trip to Keydells, you need to have your camera ready. There are so many photo opportunities on the walk. For example, a model Santa where you can sit on his lap. Cute right?

Spending almost an hour around the trail. That is not all though…

We spent another hour looking at all the beautiful Christmas decorations that Keydell have available to buy in-store. There are literally thousands of ornaments, light sets and Christmasy decor. It’s OK. We managed not to spend too much money, but that was so hard. I could picture so many of the decks making the house look pretty.

We really had such a lovely day! I would love to hear if you have had an experience visiting Keydell.
Or do you know somewhere else that is well worth the journey to go and see Christmas magic!

November here we are…

Happy November! Is anyone else feeling pretty excited that its less than 2 months till Christmas now? which means its even less time till the Christmas decorations come out! EEEE.

I love the day that we put our tree up! I can not wait. October sped by us pretty quickly. Of course, hoping that you all had a spooky Halloween! Yesterday we had brilliant fun, as we went trickle treating and carved pumpkins yesterday with friends.

November has come as almost a shock, not even realising October had flown past so fast, bad I know. This year has really sped by under the circumstances. I feel like it has only been 5 minutes since we were getting back from the most amazing adventures at Disney Land Paris.

God that was a good time! I wish I was back at that moment, I went there with a girlfriend and came back to be honoured to call her my Fiancé.

November news
This was one of my favourite moments!

Big news…

As some of you already know or read back in past posts, I have had a complete rollercoaster of time lately. Especially with my health taking a massive nose dive back in February. After countless visits to the doctor’s surgery and hospital, Major surgery and constant flow of scans. I can still say I am none the wiser really with what has been wrong, or is wrong with me now.

With the major disappointing time with leaving my job, I have finally begun to put myself out for some major changes.
I have been spending some time, writing business plans, countless lists, and getting the business ready I am taking the massive leap of faith. Heading into the world of the self-employed! (Argh, I know right! Whoah, Brave?)

November

So what will I be doing for work?

Since it is me that is talking here, I am pretty sure, that you know that it isn’t going to be completely straight forward. I’m going to be doing a mixture of things, including buying and selling, continuing with my blog & craft. Since I got my Cricut, I am crafting even more than ever before. I am also working on a special project right now! But I will be keeping this completely secret! It is basically a watch this space kind of things.
Taking this time in my leap forward to appreciate everything that I already have, every experience that I have received and using them to build and grow.

Obviously I am well aware that this is going to be far from an easy ride but I have my motivated and determined cap on. I’m already getting myself ready to learn more skills, and practice the ones I already have. (like the organisation and the bookkeeping).

November

So what are my goals this November?

  1. To continue to remain focused on building my business, and not give up on what I am doing!
  2. To bring more blog posts per week and get organised to media and content.
  3. Craft more! I’m hoping to be doing some fairs around Christmas, to sell what I have already created.
  4. Upload more to my Etsy Store.
  5. Take every opportunity that comes at me!

That is enough for now right?

So that is it for now! and To be honest, I think that those goals are pretty big enough to keep me going for more than a month, well that’s the plan anyway.
All I can say now is bring on December! when it gets even busier.

Love you All …

Taking a look at Pretty Peachy subscription box

This post contains gifted items from Pretty Peachy Co.

I am a big fan when it comes to subscription boxes and this month I have been lucky enough to partner with Pretty Peachy Co. You can find their website here.
The thing I love about the variety of subscription boxes that we have available to us, every order is a little bit like Christmas no matter where you are in the year. You may have read my June post review on the Crafty Vine subscription box If you haven’t take a look here.
With subscription boxes, you truly do not know what is inside until you have received the box, and your opening it up for yourself. I seem to get a rush of excitement and anticipation to find out what is inside when the latest box falls through my front door!

The pretty peachy team are a relatively new company who are providing us with some pretty awesome subscription boxes, “The PEACHY BOX containing 5 goodies, including skincare, haircare, makeup, jewellery and so much more!”. So I am very excited to be sharing with you guys my thoughts on the box that I received from them.

Before I start talking about how much I love the box I received from the Pretty Peachy team let me give you 5 reasons why I love subscription boxes.

The content is random, and a surprise every time.

I love receiving my subscription boxes on an unexpected day! another reason to smile!

Subscription boxes can contain items that are more expensive than the box itself! I love a good find!

Some items in the box can also be a try before you buy! as you can get hooked to new products!

They are just FUN. Plain and simple. Ok?

Talking inside the box…

Firstly I would really like to point out how pretty and eye-catching the box is. I really like the packaging, the peach and pastel-coloured box is a pretty awesome design! I love that inside they have included a selection of sparkly gems. The gems added the nicest touch to the box when opening up and seeing them glistening back at me.

This months box has been themed on ‘all about you!’ and The Pretty Peachy team have outdone themselves with this theme.

Pretty Peachy Cute Meow Socks

Firstly looking at the really cute pair of Cotton Grey Meow Socks, I adore these. The socks are themed on cats which are really cute. not the theme for everyone but I really do think these are cute. They are super soft to touch which is just what you want for a cosy pair of socks. I think these would be the perfect socky item for a day of self-care! The socks have been embroidered with the word ‘Meow’ with a cute white heart and paw print pattern on them. How bloody cute is this?

Marble cosmetics bag

Next up in my box, an elegant looking ‘cosmetic storage bag’ a stunning black and marble themed pattern. I love the bag, it is really smooth and with a touch of gold for the zip! Also, I would say that its a really practical size, and something that I personally would definitely benefit from using. I’m pretty sure that anyone who is a fan of makeup would find a use for such an item. It is perfect as a makeup accessory.

Beauty Glazed Mars Bright Eye Shadow Palette

The makeup included ‘Beauty Glazed Mars bright eye shadow palette‘. What an amazing little treat to have found! The Beauty Glazed palettes are awesome and actually, this one is a new favourite! The palette itself has a really sweet smell to it. Honestly, the fragrance had made the whole box smell amazing upon arrival. I love how bright the colours are inside. I tried some of the shiny looking eye shadows included in the Mars palette and they are so nice! My favourite colour is glittery pink (of course).

Pretty Peachy Makeup Brush

The makeup brush that has been included is another item that I am really impressed with. However, I admit I can be so fussy when it comes to makeup brushes. I mean no one wants to feel a cactus running over their skin as they are applying their makeup right? Well, this brush is absolutely the right amount of soft! The bristles feel amazing against your skin. Having tried it now it’s perfect for applying liquid foundation, or even as a contour brush! Love it!

A beautiful bangle

Finally included in the box I found a beautiful bangle bracelet decorated with hearts. I love bangles, they are the perfect finishing piece to any outfit. Pretty and girly.

The Pretty Peachy team have successfully produced a stunning subscription box that can appeal to many. I love how connected the products have been with their theme ‘All about you’. I honestly feel that it is well worth subscribing in the future for £15 a box. The pretty Peachy team will be including a massive range of product in each box. “you will never receive the same item twice no matter how long you subscribe for!”I cant wait to see what else Pretty Peachy will be bringing us.

What do you guys think? Are subscription boxes for you? what do you think about the range from Pretty Peachy?
