Zoella Lifestyle 

I am a big fan of Zoella and when I saw her recent YouTube video going through her new range Zoella Lifestyle I was really excited!

Her new range was released on the 19th September which just happens to be my birthday! So it would have been very rude of me not to put in a small order. I’ve been away for a couple of days celebrating my birthday so by the time I got to the Boot’s website the items I wanted had sold out, but luckily Superdrug still had them in stock!

They arrived today and I’ve gotta admit I LOVE THEM!

So what did I get???

TheNaps Fix Everything” Pillow 

As a girl fighting an ongoing battle with a chronic illness, Yes – Naps do fix everything! and I find I’m napping more and more. I really do love this pillow and when I saw it I knew it would be purchased!

“Once Upon a Time” Journal 

I’ve been after a new journal for a while and when Zoe showed this on her video I really liked the style. Admittedly it costs more than I would usually pay for a notebook but it’s really good quality and it smells amazing!

“Warm Hands Warm Heart” Travel Mug and Fingerless Gloves 

I’ve been after a travel mug for a while and I love fingerless gloves so this seemed like a good fit for me.

I also liked that the slogan ‘topped with cream & sprinkles’ as I’m lacto free and can’t have cream anymore. It makes me laugh. I know, I’m weird.

I know there has been some bad press regarding this range and the price. I am on a small budget and bought what I could afford and I honestly think for the price, effort and quality of the products. It is of good value.  And it is like anything else, don’t buy it if you aren’t happy with it.

I personally am very happy with my products and very glad I bought them. Was a lovely extra birthday treat for me.

As alway, thank you for reading.

Primark, Boots and The Works Haul 

Had to go to town today for a dentist appointment and afterwards had to get bday presents for my Nan and our Niece.

So only seemed right to get myself a couple of bits while I was out.


I have been lusting after this bag for a while, one of my biggest regrets from last year was not buying the Novelty Camera Bag from Accessorize. Loveed that bag and I didn’t buy it!

So when I saw this, I knew I had to have it but I’m trying to be careful with money so when I saw they had a sale going on I thought I’d have a look and there it was!!!

Primark PopCorn bag £9 down to £5

Love it, Love it, LOVE IT!!!! And going to have a lot of fun using it.

When my stomach is playing up and I’m just trying to be comfortable, I love PJ Bottoms. But being plus size and over 6 foot is a nightmare to find some.

I really like the Primark Men PJs section as 1) they fit and 2) they are long enough for me. When I saw these I knew I had to add them to my collection.

Star Wars PJ Bottoms £7


I mostly got my toiletries from Boots so I’m not going to show you thoses but I did buy theses beauties! My nails have been in a state for a while and with my girly weekend away coming up soon I thought I’d treat myself to these.

£7.99 each, buy one get one half price offer

The purple ones are definitely my favourite and can’t wait to use them!

The Works 

I bought my niece’s bday pressie from the works so not going to show that but will show you my new pen.

Finding Dory Pen- £1 from The Works

I am such a big kid! And will very happily use this at work this week!

And last but not least I bought this pillow from Card Factory. I have often said that my chair in the living room is my throne- I now have the pillow to prove it!

Her Majestry Pillow- £2.99 from Card Factory

Thanks for reading!
