Tesco Spring/Summer Clothing Haul

I have decided that I am going to share with you today some bits which I got a while ago but I know that these items are still available because they are part of their spring/summer ranges. I hardly ever actually go to Tesco to have a look at their clothing because it now is not somewhere we go to shop if this makes sense.

The first item which I picked up is this pack of 5 trainer socks in these lovely pastel socks which are going to go with some of the other items which are included in this haul. I remembered when I was in Tesco that Jess has some normal socks some of which are getting tight on her feet because she is always growing and then she doesn’t own trainer socks when she does actually own a pair of trainers. I love the colours because they remind me of the spring/summer period which we are going into and these were a bargain as I managed to get this pack of 5 for only £3. I am sure that she will be getting plenty of wear out of these in the coming months.

Leggings are something which she owns a fair amount of the reason behind this is because I find them so easy to put on when she is going to nursery as all you need is a nice top. She does have a few pairs in the next size up which is 12-18 months but I saw these pastel ones and was drawn to them for some reason I know that they will go well with some tops which she has in 12-18 months. I am sure that these will get plenty of wear because as I said you can use them for nursery when it is sunny or even when it is raining which is more likely in the UK, In this three pack you got a pair of pink and white stripped ones, a pair of white and a pair of mint ones. For these 3 I only managed to get these for £6 which means that it is only £2 a pair. This means that it does not matter to me as much should these get ruined with paint or something at nursery,

With summer coming up I decided that I would pick up these plain denim shorts I think these are going to be teamed with tights and a top. I can style her like this for both nursery and when we go on family days out. They have elastic in the waist which means that they are going to have room for when she grows without digging in and becoming tight. These shorts were only £6 I have seen similar ones in Gap for £20. Jess already has a couple of pairs of shorts in 9-12 months the size which she is currently in and she seems to love them so I am sure that they are going to get plenty of wear out of these.

The next item I picked was this 3 pack of vest tips which have flowers on the top half I choose these because I found that they are simple enough to wear with leggings which could be classed as busy yet they look amazing even with plain leggings. I love the mint green colour because it is not a colour which you see a lot of girls clothing in. Within this pack there is also a white which is the same design as the mint one on the front. The one on the back is actually a really busy flowery print however, this is going to be one which is amazing with some plain leggings so that it does not clash. This 3 pack was only £7 if it does not get warm enough this summer for short sleeves these can always be teamed with a cardigan.

Can you tell a team when I was shopping I wanted it to be the summer I decided that Jess needed some more of the vest tops these ones are ribbed and they have some amazing lace details on the arms however, apart from that it is plain. I was drawn to the pink and the yellow because these are colours which are not found commonly in Jess’s wardrobe.  I will be teaming these with leggings and shorts depending on the temperature again if it is not that warm she can always put a cardigan over these. I could not leave them behind because for the pack of 3 it was only £4 which is a bargain so again I am not bothered should they become ruined at nursery.

Grey is a colour which I love to see Jess in for some reason and I love these skater kind of dresses. I find them so easy because all you need to do is put some tights should it be cold or bare legs if the summer ever come and then you look stylish. Every size Jess has been in I have had to have a couple of these style of dresses they are similar to the ones which you can get from Next. I love the rabbits as I feel like they are grown up because an issue I have found as because she is 1 1/2 she is still in the baby section and they can make her look stupid.  This dress was only £4 as you can see from the picture and I am sure it is going to be one which gets a ton of wear out of. I might have to go back and see if they have anymore like this.

Talking of similar dressed I managed to find this dress which is the same style as the one which I just showed however, this one is pink and floral. As you may know if you know me pink and floral is not something which I would wear myself but it is something which I think suits Jess so well her hair just really goes with light colours of pink. I am hoping these dresses are going to be ones which wash really well because I am sure they are going to be ones which she is constantly wearing as soon as they are out of the wash.

Do you shop in Tesco’s for clothing?

The March Melt Box- Flamingo Candles ’17

One thing which I am always looking forward to when a new month started is that there is going to be a new melt box arriving as you know I am someone who loves burning candles and tarts. Of course today I am going to share with you March’s edition I know this is pretty late, however, I have just had some much content to get out to you lovely people. March has an amazing spring theme as some of you may know March is when the Spring starts officially and this month I have seen that the weather has become so much nicer.

If you are unsure what the melt box is it is a monthly subscription box from flamingo candles each box has 8 wax tart melts. They are a combination of old favourites, current scents and some which are still yet to be launched as well as some exclusives to the melt crowd. As a member you receive a wax burner with your first box which allows you to burn the wax as well as a 20% discount code with every box which is useful for us candle addicts.

Rose Velvet & Precious Oud this is the first wax tart which I am not a huge fan of rose as some of you may know if you read my candles or lush haul. This one has made me actually like the scent and for some reason I can not put my finger on the reason why maybe they have done something different with the rose which actually makes me like it. I may have to burn this one very soon as I am loving this on a dry sniff.

Violet & Lime this to me smells like parma violets sweets which is not something that I dislike but this is not one which I am looking forward to burning the most. The reason behind this may be due to the fact that I never really loved the sweets when I was growing up as a child so the scent is not one which I have a huge craving to burn. This might smell amazing with something else which is sweet I am unsure what I will burn yet. 

Pink Lemonade I think that this is one of my favourite scents that I have this month because it smells to me super berry and lemon. This really reminds me of the spring/summer which means that it will not take me long to want to burn this because it smells amazing and I love it when it is the summer. I really need to get what I have in my burners burnt because I want this one ASAP.

Creme Brulee is a tart which is a little bit too sweet for me due to the fact that I am a girl who love the more fresh and fruity scents compared to the sweets. I think if you like creme brulee you are actually going to love this scent because of the fact that it is a true representation of the famous desert. 

Peaches and Cream reminds me of the sweets which used to be cream and peach from the 90’s/00’s which used to come in wrappers I swear you used to get them from the dentist but maybe that is me who just used to consume them after been the the dentist. I used to love to suck them so there is no wonder I used to be at the dentist. I am sure that this is one which I am going to be burning very shortly because it does smell actually so much like these sweets and I wish you could still get them. 

Tangerine Mojito I love this scent because it is citrus with a hint of mint which just takes the edge off. I would love to be able to drink this one because it smells that amazing, This is one which on the days when you wish you was in a beer garden but you can not because you have other things to be doing such as staying in and completing assignments which seems to be the story of my life at the moment. I think that this is one of my favourites in this box. 

Daffodil is one which I am not a huge fan of because I do not know what the flower actually has a scent and for me it was a little bit the same with this tart. I am sure that if you love floral scents this may be one which you will end up really liking more than I do. It may be a good one to burn if you have a large area where you burn your tarts

Orange Pekoe Tea I am not a huge fan of tea in candles which is the all that I can smell in this candle. To me it smells like an earthy but very spicy wax tart however this is no a type of tea which I have managed to smell. This is one which I am sure I will burn at some stage however, this is not going to be one which I am going to be itching to burn. 

What is your favourite scent from this box?

Living Arrows #12- Time To Explore

As some of you may know if you live in the UK the weather has become really nice and since we have such girl who wants to be outside all of the time it has seen us as a family be outside a couple of times this weekend. We took Jess to a park at the other side of the the city and it is a large park which means that she can roam free, We picked up another rein bag this one is a ladybird one and this is going to stay in the car so that we can use it if we need it and do not have the other one. This bag was only £8.99 from Argos and it was Treprass as well. As you can tell she from the photograph she is having such a great time and when I looked on my phone she has walked around 2 miles that day and that’s a lot for little legs.

During our time in the park we have had an ice cream Jess decided that she wanted a milky moo I think they are called and this is her face when it has all gone, We still had ours but Jess had finished and it meant that she ended up sharing half of mine because she is such a cheeky monkey but she deserves it don’t worry she did not have way to much. I love this picture because I think that she looked really a little girl but I do forget that she is 18 months now and she is not a little baby anymore. I think that it is one of the first times I have put her in light denim properly and she has tights under them.

The final image I am going to share with you is this one of Jess in our back garden and this was her face when she had a found a plant pot. I think she had great fun because she was always trying to get them and the pegs which have been dropped on the grass during the winter and we have not managed to pick them up. I love this picture however something which I am not a huge fan of is how super ginger she looks om this picture but I am not bother if she fully turns out like this, I am sure looking forward to more summery days because it means that we can be outside more.

How have you been spending this warm weekend?
