Making the Perfect Cup of Green Tea

Ikettle

iKettle from The Discovery Store | Vintage Tea Cup and saucer from Bombay Duck

So, I’m back from my trip to Majorca after taking a short break from posting and I have something rather exciting to share with you. If there’s one thing I can’t live without it’s a cup of green tea to start the day. Now that I work from home, I can put a lot more time and effort into my tea making rituals and these little things really do brighten my day. Does anyone apart from me really look forward to their cup of tea on a morning? From the prettiest vintage tea cups and saucers to the most luxurious tea leaves, I have all of the info you need to up your tea game. My secret weapon? The iKettle (among other things).

You’re welcome ladies!

Things to do When You are Stuck in a Rut

Maldives

Do you ever have those days where you just want to dye your hair, quit your job or jump on a plane to Vegas and follow your dream of becoming a showgirl? *guilty face*. As a freelancer, I have the luxury of working anywhere in the world but for some reason I do it in Leeds, in my home office. I often sit at my desk and wonder why on earth I’m not swapping my seat for a sea view. Maintaining a blog is time consuming and if you run your blog alongside your full time job, it’s even harder to find the time to put in to create a post that meets your standards and that of your readers. It’s also so easy to see the fantastic opportunities that other bloggers receive and feel like you are not doing enough. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the many rewards that come with running a blog but I started my blog because I love writing and between sponsored posts and reviewing items I have been sent, there is little time to sit down and write a post that isn’t motivated by events I’ve been to and products I’ve received. Recently I’ve been thinking about what direction to take my blog in this year and it seems I’m in a bit of rut. If you’ve ever felt this way about your blog, I thought I’d share a few tips and tricks that I use when I’m feeling a little bit lost.

My Summer Wish List

Untitled #12
With summer just around the corner, I can’t help but get a little bit giddy. Summer is my favourite season and I’m booking lots of trips abroad this year which means I have the perfect excuse to holiday shop! In under two weeks, I will be jetting off to Marbella and I’m not ready in the slightest. If there was a degree for faffing I would have one. The Queen of unorganised, the holiday countdown has started without me and I have yet to step foot in a shop. Don’t even get me started on my base tan, my body brushing regime or my bikini body.

Ever Glaze Polishes in shades Pretty Poppy, Rose to the Occassion and I Wanna be Your Lava.

If you’ve been following on Snapchat (username: Remielund), you will have seen a little sneak peek of this post earlier this week. Now, I always used to shy away from bold nail shades but in recent months I’ve really embraced them so I was ever so excited to try these new Ever Glaze extended wear polishes. The Ever Glaze polishes are new to the China Glaze family and they boasts all of the fun loving colours that the China Glaze range encompassed but the polish itself is more of a durable, longer-lasting formula so you can create the gel effect at home.

Nothing inspires me more to get my lazy ass to workout more than buying some sparkly new pieces of gym kit (just me?) so I thought I’d share my summer themed fitness wish list with you all. Some of these bits and bobs I’ve already invested in and some are still on my list of things to buy.
