Knick Knack Under the Sea Jewellery Subscription Box ***Discount Code***

Hello!

Sorry about the lack of posts recently…I was full of cold last week so I’ve been playing catch up with all of my jobs!

I was lucky enough to be asked to review the latest Knick Knack jewellery subscription box from Alphabet Suitcase. This is a monthly box containing a range of jewellery items to match the theme of the month. The June box had an ‘Under the Sea’ theme and it has some great nautical items in it! You can watch my unboxing video here and see below for the discount code!

Bank Holiday Shopping, Cocktails and a Catch-Up!

Hello! Did you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend? I had a great time! Particularly on Saturday when I was having a much needed catch up and shopping spree with a couple of my school friends!

I’ve known Becky since primary school, and we met Catherine when we were in the same form at high school. We saw each other on and off throughout University but the three of us haven’t all got together for almost 5 years! Me and Becky now work in central Leeds, so Catherine made the trip over to West Yorkshire for us to all get together for some retail therapy and cocktails! We had lots of fun with lots of gossip and some good food…we were all shattered by the end of it…we need some more practice I think!

And here is a sneak peek at my shopping:

And We’re Back! (Florida Haul)

Wow, how long has it been since my last post! Apologies for the delay, I was ill before I went on holiday, the I spend two weeks in Florida, then I came back with a cold! Since then I have been doing a lot of overtime at work and I haven’t had chance to write up this post! To add to the complications, my laptop has been shipped off for repair so I can’t even share any of my holiday snaps with you! So for now I will just share my shopping with you instead!

I will split the shopping into sections;ย souvenirs;ย clothes; beauty and crafts, so hopefully that will cover something for everyone!

Souvenirs:

Since my last trip to Florida in 2006, I have been collecting pins. My primary collection is of Hard Rock Cafe pins, but I collected plenty on this trip to boost my holiday ones too. I picked up one for each of my two favourite rides (the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean), the Pirates of the Caribbean one opens up to reveal a skeleton. I got a penguin from Seaworld because James’ love of penguins has rubbed off on me and how can you resist those eyes??? I also got some cute mini Marvel characters and a Perry the Platypus pin…who was my character obsession this visit!

In keeping with every holiday (or every holiday destination that has a Hard Rock Cafe anyway…) I bought myself a Hard Rock Cafe pin and this time I also got a patch to sew onto my blanket. Continue reading
