Fondue Heaven: Charlie’s Chocolate Fountain

Valentines Day for me is just another day of the year - probably the same for a lot of other fellow single people! This year I decided, with lockdown especially, that I was going to celebrate with my friends!

I was lucky enough to be sent an amazing box from Charlie’s Chocolate Fountain. Started in May 2020, during the midst of the COVID pandemic, Charlie began creating chocolate fondue boxes for family members and friends to enjoy in the comfort of their homes. Due to their popularity, this grew into a business opportunity for Charlie. She has since expanded her business by offering a variety of different style boxes.

5 feel good books to read during lockdown!

I’ll be honest, since about 6 months ago I wasn’t a huge fan of ‘chick lit’ books, or to be honest, any kind of books that aren’t thrillers! I usually read a lot of thrillers and, save for my book club selection that month, I rarely deviate from this! However, 2021 brought with it another lockdown and thanks to the English winter weather, I’ve found it really hard to stay completely positive. For this reason (I think) I’ve not been as interested in reading thrillers and have found myself leaning more towards feel good, uplifting books. Let’s face it, everyone needs a bit of a boost right now! 

Here are 5 books I’ve read this month that I have loved and that have left me feeling much more positive afterwards!

SHELF LOVE: 5 of my favourite 'RomCom' novels

I’m not sure where you’re reading this from right now but if you’re in the UK, you’re probably just as fed up as I am. After another lockdown, we’ve been put into Tier 3 in Manchester, which doesn’t seem much different to a lockdown to me if I’m perfectly honest.

This year I’ve completely immersed myself in reading to keep busy/keep my brain working and for the most part, it has helped. Sometimes you just need cheering up and what better than a feel good book or film?! I've put together a list of my favourite romantic comedy fiction books - happy reading!

Pretty Little Lashes London

Pretty Little Lashes London started in 2020 by two UK based friends, Hayley Bronti and Ella Downs. Their makeup artist backgrounds provided knowledge on what makes a good lash and has enabled them to create, in my opinion, a high quality brand. Since opening, the brand has gone from strength to strength now also branching out into their own makeup brushes and makeup sponges.
