Thou shalt not covet …
Thou shalt not covet … But if I was a covetous sort my list, for March, would read like this …
Neutral Open Boots from Next
I live in skinny jeans and long black boots. With Spring on the horizon I need to lower my boots and these ones are calling my name. In a bid to justify my urges I have looked in the wardrobe and I only have trainers, flat shoes, heels or long boots. Obviously I need these ankle boots.
Can you hear them? … “Laaaaaaaaura” – see? They want me as much as I want them.
The Home – Rhubarb and Ginger Candle
We live near a lovely place called Salts Mill, which houses my favourite bookshop. They also have a home and living shop which is full of lovely things, usually very expensive things, that I feel nervous about touching. I’ve written before about the lengths I’ll go to to get my hands on a candle. My sister and I were bimbling round The Home, just the other day, oohing and aahing and I stopped dead in my tracks when I sniffed this. It’s so very rhubarby. I’ve had a look online and I can’t find it – which means I’ll have to go back … and soon.
I was approached to do a review for the Anna Lou childrens’ range (Review coming shortly!). Unfortunately I fell into the adult section and eyes-wide fell in love with the leather wrap bracelets. With Mother’s Day approaching I have dropped heavy hints, in an email entitled ‘YOU CAN GET ME THIS FROM MY CHILDREN’ to The Husband. Fingers crossed.
On a recent night out in Leeds The Husband and I were sat in Roast & Conch (attached to Hotel Chocolat – a unique dining concept with a twist of cocoa) when their bar manager decided to come over and gave us a gin and rum tasting – Thanks Jonathan! He can, undeniably, spot a gin lush from 10 yards. We sampled some absolute beauties for no reason other than he wanted to share his incredible knowledge. One of the nicest drinks we tried was this Diplomatico Single Vintage Rum. Oh my days, it was good. At just short of £80 you’d have to sip it slowly … for a long time! I managed to persuade the Jonathan that he should entertain myself, Erica and Becky when we have a foodie blogger trip to Leeds later in the year.
Emma Bridgewater Chocolate Labrador Mug
I’ve been after one of these for a while. I love Emma Bridgewater mugs and am convinced that tea tastes better in one. Now I’m ready to add to my expanding mug collection it’s vanished off the site. I have tweeted the people at Emma Bridgewater to find out if it’s been discontinued … but have had no response, as yet. The fact that I am coveting a mug with dogs on it makes me feel old.
