I am really loving Femmeluxe at the moment. They are are a great clothing website and after ordering a pair of trousers recently, I was so impressed with the fit that I wanted them in different colours!

I order all of the items in a small/medium which is a UK 8-10 or a size 10 if there was no S/M option and I find this is the best size option for me and they fit really well.

Brown check short sleeve boxy loungewear set – lacy

S/M

£17.99

In find all of their lounge wear sets are super comfy. The material is quite thick for a lounge wear set and I love anything with a boxy design. The trousers fit perfectly and I love having a top to go with it. Ideal for wearing out when you want to look smart but still be comfortable!

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

Houndstooth short sleeve boxy loungewear set – lacy

S/M

£17.99

This is the same as the set above but a different design. Really impressed with the quality of the fabric and how well it fits. This is a must for the office as it looks so smart but is so comfortable you feel like you are in your pjs!

Black boxy stripe loungewear – Zelda

S/M

£18.99

In find all of their lounge wear sets are super comfy. The material is quite thick for a lounge wear set and I love anything black. The trousers fit perfectly and I love having a top to go with it. Ideal for wearing around the house or to wear when working out.

You can either 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. The set is ideal if you want to wear sportswear but look a bit nicer.

Stone cargo slim fit trouser – sunny

Size 10

£19.99

I loved my camouflage trousers so much I ended up getting them in the plain green, black and now stone too. They fit so well around the waist and are elasticated around the ankles for a tighter fit. The material is slightly stretchy and really comfortable.

As I previously mentioned, 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! The prices are so reasonable too and considering how cheap they are, they are really great quality. I am always skeptical about ordering clothes online as you can’t feel them to know the quality but these are so good and for the quality I would have expected them to be more expensive!

Imagine having a powerbank made with any photo or text you want on it. USB makers have an amazing range of powerbanks and USB drives that you can personalise and get sent to you within 24 hours using their express service.

I ordered their card powerbank with my blog logo on and it was so easy to use their personalisation service. You have to approve the image before it gets made and you can see how it will look:

The minimum order for this particular one was 10pcs but I plan on giving them away at some point as prizes 🙂

It would be great for a business to get these made up or even to get them made for your family members at Christmas with your family name or a message on!

The powerbank comes with instructions and a cable to recharge it.

My favourite thing about the powerbank is that it comes with a built in cable to use. Usually you have to lug around an iPhone cable but this has a built in micro usb and you can also then use the built in adaptor too which makes it into a lightening iPhone charger! It is so cool that you can use it to charge two different things without having additional cables.

When not in use the cable folds back into the powerbank 🙂

It came in so handy using it on my recent day out when I wanted to charge my phone and my camera!

Really impressed with the service from USB makers as well as the quality of the powerbank and how useful it is!

Something I struggle with when travelling is what to do with my jewellery. No matter how I pack it, my necklaces always end up tangled, or I end up losing an earring!

I have recently been using this travel jewellery organiser from Ellis James Designs and it has come in so handy. It is great to store things in whilst travelling to keep them safe and can then be used whilst away as storage.

It is a decent size to fit lots in but not too big, so it won’t take up too much room. If you have a safe in your room whilst away it is ideal to use as quite often you end up putting lose items in there, so this will hold them all together.

It has a special section for earrings at the top and a really cool section at the bottom for necklaces or bracelets as well as multiple zip sections. It comes in a choice of colours and I love the grey.

It would make a great gift for anyone that travels a lot.

“Coffee Tea starts your day with an unforgettable aroma and taste profile that takes away the bitterness and acidity you typically experience in regular coffee or tea. Each of our blends
are designed to taste great on its own so adding any extra sweeteners isn’t necessary for it to taste great. There’s also a special synergy that happens when combining tea and coffee which provides several health benefits. These benefits include improved focus, reduced mental stress, mood-boosting, and tons of antioxidants.” – www.balancedboost.com

You read correctly, coffee tea, coffee and tea combined in one drink!

There is a special synergy that happens when the tea is combined with the coffee.
Improved cognitive performance, reduced mental stress, moodboosting are just a few to name.

Now for the science behind Balanced boost coffee tea:

Coffee, the biggest source of caffeine, also provides one of the biggest sources of antioxidants, consuming it has been associated with various health benefits, the seconds largest source of caffeine worldwide is tea, which tends to have a modest amount, but far less
than Coffee, tea is also high in antioxidants as well. Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system and is suggested to block a neurotransmitter called adenosine which builds a tendency for you to fall asleep or feel tired. Caffeine by itself, is not without its drawbacks however, as too much of it can cause you to feel wired or less focused as your brain wanders.

That is where the combination with tea comes in and saves the day. There are three main components of tea that help balance out the caffeine in coffee. First is L-theanine, a psychoactive amino acid with unique properties, this amino acid can enter the brain by
crossing the blood-brain barrier. Studies have shown that Ltheanine can increase alpha brain waves functions, increase in dopamine production, which are associated with alert relaxation,
anti-anxiety, and calming focus. The combination of caffeine and Ltheanine have a synergistic effect, particularly potent at improving brain function.

The other two components of tea are Theophylline and Theobromine, both are organic compounds also found in Cocoa beans. They have been shown to relax and smooth muscles in airways, making breathing easier while also stimulating both the rate and force of heart contractions, improving blood flow. Put it simply, tea is too weak by itself, which normally provides about 10 to 40 mg of caffeine compared to 100-200 mg in coffee. Coffee can be too strong by itself, without the balance of L-theanine, Theophylline, Theobromine, and other compounds provided by tea. However, when combined with coffee, it provides a perfect
combination of energy, alertness, calm, focus, without the wired, jitter feel of just caffeine.

I have tried two of their blends : Jasmine coffee tea and Sencha coffee tea

Jasmine coffee tea – bliss/focus/energy/healthy skin

Sencha coffee tea – mental focus/energy/antioxidents

Have you ever tried these?

We have always had a lot of plain walls in our house but I am at the point now where I want to start adding more pictures and things but I don’t want to have to worry about ruining the paint. I have previously used a couple of things from Tesa and I am so impressed with their adhesive nail/powerstrip range.

The Tesa smart mounting system is so easy to use and is ideal for homeowners, these hanging strips can be purchased on Amazon.

You can buy different options depending on the weight of your product which I think is a great idea. The fact they are removable too is good if you plan to take a picture down in the near future and don’t want to have made a massive hole in the wall by using a nail or something similar.

They are so easy and simple to use and take no time at all. The instructions are clear and if you do want to remove them you can then just buy extra strips to stick on them.

I think they would be handy if you are renting and you aren’t allowed to hang things up as these won’t leave a mark when removed.

What do you usually use to hang things on the wall?
