Pineapple wishlist

In all seriousness, who doesn’t like pineapples?! They are just so tropical and summery, I love them. Not only do they taste amazing, but they just look so cute and they remind me of being on holiday in the Caribbean! This year I think there has been an abundance of pineapple prints and homeware so I have decided to collate some of my faves in a pineapple themed wishlist for you all to enjoy too.

I’m loving the cushion, but unfortunately it wouldn’t go with our living room’s colour scheme, wahh. Just need to have a tropical themed bedroom now…..

The gold pineapple necklace from River Island is too cute and the perfect way to tropical up any outfit, so ideal for holidays.

Pineapple cocktail sticks, you need these in your life for homemade pina coladas or Singapore slings. Just think how fancy you will look with a pineapple chunk skewered on it. Cocktail umbrella optional.

The Boohoo playsuit is so perfect for summer. It is casual enough you could wear it on the beach over a bikini, but could be dressed up with wedges and a statement necklace. It looks so comfortable too! The pineapple print is quite understated for those who don’t want to go full on in your face tropical.

So apparently you can get pineapple spoons! I know I’m going a bit far now, but if they are out there then there must be a demand! They would be great for serving with a pineapple dessert at a dinner party. You’d be the hostess with the mostess for sure.

The LUSH shampoo sounds lie heaven in a bottle to me. Packed full of tropical fruits it works to clarify your hair and leaves it smelling like a fruit cocktail, om nom nom!

Would you buy any of these items?

What to get your mum for Mother’s Day

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Mother’s Day is just around the corner now, so if you have left it to the last minute to buy your mum a special something, then here are a few ideas to get you going!

1. Pink Grapefruit Large Yankee Candle Jar from Yankee Candle, £19.99

I treated myself to a medium sized jar of this flavour candle in January, and I have to say it is absolutely delicious smelling! I really love the fruity scents and I think that they are a good choice for mums as it isn’t too sickly and sweet. My mum hates floral scented things, especially lavender, so a fruity smelling candle would be right up her street. With so many different flavours on offer, it would be easy to find one that is suited to your mum’s taste too.

2. Blackberry Cake Stand from Marks and Spencer, £29.50

The Great British Bake Off has been back recently with special celebrity episodes for Comic Relief and every time the show is on our screens it seems that everyone is inspired to get baking. This cake stand is really pretty and if your mum doesn’t yet own one, perhaps now is the perfect time! You could treat her even more this Mother’s Day by getting your bake on and making an array of cute cupcakes to display on it.

3. Carrie Statement Pearl Earrings from Accessorize, £17

Mums love a bit of jewellery, and the best part is these Accessorize beauties wont break the bank. I love the pearl accents as they look really classy for statement earrings. These would be perfect for your mum to pair with pastels this spring, but would also look great with an LBD.

4. Dark Willow Picnic Hamper from John Lewis, £85

This picnic basket is absolutely divine! I honestly think this is a fantastic gift to buy for your mum if she doesn’t have one already. The Dark Willow Picnic Hamper caters for four people which is ideal for a little family jaunt to a park or the beach (obvs when the weather is better!) Plus there is even room for wine and you get a corkscrew included too – perfect!

5. Shea Butter Hand Cream from L’Occitane, £19

All woman love hand cream and in my opinion, L’Occitane make some cracking ones.Shea butter is one of my favourite body care ingredients as it treats all sorts of skin issues including dry, cracked and sore skin – so it is the perfect treat for mum’s hands.

6. Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum from Feel Unique, £35.10

If in doubt, perfume is always a good choice. I love this Jimmy Choo scent, and it is also one of my mum’s top picks. It smells amazing with a fruity and feminine base and woody depths, it is utterly lovely and I highly recommend it.

I hope this gives you a little bit of inspiration for your Mother’s Day shopping. I’ve got my present, just need to sort the card out now!

Christmas wishlist
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

This weekend the TV has been awash with a flurry of Christmas adverts ranging from the famous Coca Cola advert to the new John Lewis advert featuring Monty and Mabel (if you haven’t seen it yet get on it now!) so I have been getting very excited for Christmas. This will be our first Christmas in the flat, so we are starting to think about how we are going to transform it into a winter wonderland! So for anyone else who is thinking about buying some lovely items ready to decorate for Christmas here are a few of my favourite Christmas decorations that are on my wishlist.

1. Spiced Orange Large Yankee Candle Jar from Yankee Candle, £19.99 
One of the best things about Christmas is the lovely smells that come with it! We love to burn Yankee Candles and this is one of our favourites. It smells so orangey and is like Christmas in a jar!
2. 3D Resin Stag from Marks and Spencer, £12
I have definitely inherited a stag/deer obsession when it comes to Christmas decorations from my mum who has a few different ones she displays every Christmas. This little gold stag is very cute and would be perfect on a mantelpiece or sideboard if you have a gold colour scheme. 
This candle is absolutely gorgeous, it looks so pretty that I would be reluctant to burn it! The scent of the candle is beautiful and reminds me of mulled wine.
Whilst I am not really a fan of tinsel (sorry!) I adore baubles! I could honestly wander the Christmas displays for hours looking at all the different baubles on offer – so pretty! I like the damask pattern on this bauble and it is so cheap!
5. Christmas Past Berry Wreath from John Lewis, £35
This wreath is absolutely gorgeous! The red is so vibrant and bold I much prefer it to the traditional green holly or fir wreaths. It’s just a same that we aren’t allowed to hang this on our flat door…
6. Linea Gold Textured Bauble from House of Fraser, £5.60
This bauble is just a little bit special! I love the textured effect and I think it would reflect twinkly Christmas lights beautifully. This is probably my favourite item on this wish list, and the best thing is, it is currently in the sale!
