How’s your week been everyone?
Mine has been quite calm and not hectic for a change. With a lovely Sunday spent in Wales at Garthmyl Hall which my lovely friend Julia has been renovating with her family. Obviously I need supplies to get me through the journey from Birmingham in the form of coffee, sunglasses, lipbalm and hand cream!
Once I arrived I was blown away by Garthmyl Hall…
I’ve already decided if I ever get married it needs to be here at Garthmyl Hall. Everything about this venue is so luxurious, if you are looking for a venue I can’t recommend this enough. It reminds me of the type of place you imagine you’d get married in when you were little except it’s real💕.
Unfortunately I couldn’t stay very long so got some lunch before I had to catch my train.
Back to reality with a bump on Monday I got my blog items ready for reviewing. My friend kindly got hold of these mascaras for me to try so keep your eye out for the review. (spoiler alert… I was surprised)
I was thrilled with everything Louise put together for me, everything so really thoughtful and reflected what I’d asked for. The items that are wrapped are for my goddaughter, Ivy. I somehow managed to save some Cherry Ripes for my mum as well.
I had a real craving for comfort food this week with all the mixed weather we have had.
I decided to make polenta patties with marinaded steak topped with blue cheese…I was in carb induced heaven for a while afterwards. Polenta is a great alternative for coeliac stop use in cakes and bread as well. I’ve made a vegan variation of this dish before using avocado and roasted garlic beetroot which also tasted lovely.
I was only meant to pop into Harvey Nichols but then I saw this amazing gift with purchase that is currently available.
My final post of the week was my VIP passes from Bloggers Parlour which I was really excited about.
To round my week off I attended a bloggers event at The Body Shop.
The event was put together with Bloggers Parlour and I had a lovely morning that you’ll hear all about soon.
