I previously tried out a few dresses from Femmeluxe, you can find my review here. I was so impressed with the price and quality of them I decided to look and see what other items they had that took my fancy.

This time I picked up a jumper and a few two piece loungewear/exercise sets. 

Black With White Stripe Off Shoulder Loungewear Set – Shani

£16.99

This one I went for a S/M which is an 8/10. This set feels very soft and feels really comfortable. The trousers fit me really well round the wait. The top is designed to be worn on one shoulder but I prefer to wear it more like a wide neck and on both but you have the option of one shoulder if you prefer. 

What I like most about the sets is you could mix and match if you wanted. I think the dusky pink trousers would look good with the black and white top.

I think to get two items of clothing for this price is so good. You can wear them together or wear them with anything else really. The trousers would look good with any hoodie/jumper or top really, they don’t necessarily have to be worn as the set.

I love loungewear as it is great to wear around the house, we have gym equipment at home which we use so its ideal t them wear to work out in too.

Khaki Crop Jumper Loungewear Set – Deanna

£19.99

This one I went for a S/M which is an 8/10. This set is the same material at the black and white one so it also feels very soft. The size I went for fits very well and it it very comfortable. If I didn’t want to wear a cropped top then i would wear the trousers with something else. The set is ideal if you want to wear sportswear but look a bit nicer if you know what I mean. 

The trousers have an elasticated waist so I would say the small/medium would fit a size 6-10 which is better than having to pick just one size as I am usually in between an 8 and a 10.

Dusky Pink With White Stripe Lounge Wear Set – Lexi

£18.99

This one I went for a 10 as it came in individual sizes. I prefer to go to a 10 than an 8 if there is a choice as I am often between sizes and an 8 can often be slightly tight, especially in a top. The top fits perfect and the trousers are slightly loose, but not too noticeable. The material on the set is slightly different from the two I meantime above, it doesn’t feel as soft and feels a but more like a dress material, it is still really comfortable just feels slightly thicker than the other sets.

Grey Knitted Oversized Polo Neck Jumper – Polly

£19.99

This one I went for a S/M which is an 8/10 and it fits perfectly. It would look great with jeans or leggings as pictured. I love how you can fold down the neck to suit. It is quite thick but not too thick that you would get crazy hot in it. It is ideal for this time of year when you want to be warm but don’t want too many layers on as you get too hot when the heating kicks in!

******************************************************

As I mentioned in my previous review, the prices are so reasonable too and considering how cheap they are, they are really great quality. They really do have choices suited for everyone.

The delivery was super quick too which is great, as I hate having to wait ages for online orders to turn up!

Bullards gin has had a redesign. It’s is now supplied in a new bottle design with paper free labelling.

Award-winning Bullards gin has a new identity that draws heavily on its Norwich heritage to communicate the hand-crafted, premium quality of its products.

It was designed by multi-award-winning agency Stranger & Stranger to visually represent ‘The Spirit of Norwich’ and the brand’s strong ties to the city. A unique shape is inspired by the iconic chimney stack that towered over Bullards’ Anchor Brewery in Westwick Street.

The familiar ‘tipsy anchor’ trademark takes centre stage on the bottle front, reinforced with smaller versions embossed within the base of the glass as well as the cap.

The release of the new bottle design coincides with the launch of Bullards’ latest product, Old Tom Gin. Inspired by a heritage product itself as a style popular in the late 18th and 19th centuries, Bullards Old Tom Gin is botanically-sweetened with Norfolk honey and smooth mango softness at its core, overlaid with a spicy complexity that comes from pink pepper. Fresh grapefruit peel lends the gin its traditional dryness while Norfolk honey and sweet vanilla linger long after the finish. Mix with standard Indian tonic water or elderflower tonic, garnished with grapefruit peel, lemon peel or honeycomb and vanilla.

I didn’t personally try this gin as it contained honey and I stick to a strict vegan diet but my husband and his family tried it and were really impressed. It seemed to be a big hit having it with a plain tonic water and apparently it was one of the best gins they had tried.

Gin can be an acquired taste and no two gins are alike. If you are looking for a sweet gin then this one is for you as it is sweetened with honey.

Have you heard of this brand before? Are you a gin drinker?

Another couple of skincare products I have been trying are these two from Dermaloch:

Intensive: natural skin nourishment spray

Rejuvaderm: natural skin moisuturiser

The intensive is a spray moisturiser and can be used on your face or anywhere else on your body. I love that it is a spray and it sinks in quickly so you don’t have to rub it in! It is so handy and easy to use. You can also apply this to your scalp if you suffer with a dry scalp.

If you don’t like the idea of the spray you could use their rejuvaderm moisturiser which is a great all around moisturiser and it very gentle on the skin and is great to use if you have a skin condition or a sore patch. I always end up with a small patch or dermatitis on my leg in the winter so something gentle like this is ideal!

Both products are non greasy and soak in easy, they are so kind to your skin and really help to hydrate.

Their range is great for anyone with eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.

Lotil is a brand I had heard of before and seen it about a lot but never actually tried any of their products. I have been using the following the last few weeks and have been getting on really well:

I find that during the winter my skin is really dry, not just on my face but my ankles, elbows etc so I like to put a foot cream on before bed. I have been using the Lotil with aloe vera and it has really softened my feet. I put it on every few nights before my socks, before bed and my feet feel better by morning. You don’t need to use much either which is great as I hate that sticky feeling when you put too much cream on!

The original Lotil cream can be used for anything. I have been using it as a hand cream and on my dry elbows and it seems to have helped. Again, you don’t need much and it doesn’t leave you sticky!

I have really enjoyed trying the lip care as well, my lips get to dry in winter. It would be good for summer too as it has an SPF in. I use it before bed to help keep my lips hydrated through the night.

Lotil can be found in independent pharmacies and Superdrug and Boots.

Still on the hunt to try more vegan snacks and I came across emily crisps. They are crisps that are good for you and one of your five a day as they are veg or fruit based. You can buy them in health shops as well as certain supermarkets and they taste so much better than a standard pack of potato based crisps!

I am literally in love with the sweet potato based ones! I tried the ones with chilli and lime as well as the salted ones and they are both amazing. I just love sweet potato but I had never tried them in a crisp form like this, yumm.

I think I prefer the veg based ones as I am not a massive fruit person anyway but the pineapple and apple ones were still really good.

My other favourite was the french beans and sugar snap peas. They were so crunchy and just tasted so good and healthy. I am literally hungry and craving these right now as I type this haha.

Really impressed with the whole range and will be adding them to my weekly shop for sure 🙂

Have you tried any of the range?
