Random thing I have loved in… March

Wibble wobble wibble wobble jelly on a plate.

Mandarin Jelly. Om nom nom nom nom 😍

I seem to have rediscovered my love for jelly in March! In particular orange jelly with mandarins. It is just so good! I blame Sainsburys for this months not just thing I have been loving, but obsession! Their mandarin jellies are divine. (You can find them in the section with the sandwiches).

The number of these I was consuming had started to make quite a large dent in my money so I had a go at making my own.

I added peaches and mandarins to these.

I forgot how good jelly was! Now I cannot get enough. I may have gone a little wild on my last food shop and bought lots of different flavours. I am now very much looking forward to making my way through all of them. The best part is that these ones are sugar free, so not that bad for you! I can eat as much jelly as I wish and not feel bad about it.

WOOHOO! Jelly is the best! Om nom!

Random thing I have loved in… February

I have always been obsessed with anything lavender scented. There was a plant outside a house on the way to my Nan’s that had this HUGE lavender bush and I always used to squish the little purple flowers between my fingers so I could smell like them. My bedside table is littered with lavender lotions, potions, sprays and my latest obsession, this essential oil roll on from Tisserand.

Tisserand Lavender Sweet Dreams

Tisserand are a well known brand of essential oils. Last summer I bought a three pack which included “De-Stress”, “Energy”, and this one “Sweet Dreams”. It has lavender, sandalwood and jasmine oils, and it smells divine. Just the perfect delicious, relaxing scent for bed time.

The roller ball design is so handy for quick and easy application to your pulse points.

I have been using it every night, and cannot get enough of it. Finally it is running out so I bought a new one from Amazon for £5.95. Considering this one lasted me from August last year up until now I think that is a pretty good price.

Only draw back of searching “Tisserand Sweet Dreams” on Amazon was the realisation that they do a pillow spray, and a large oil, and a bath oil and…. goodbye money.

Random thing I have loved in… January

Each month I am going to pick one, just one thing that I have been loving in that month. It can be anything, food, make up, entertainment or like in the case of this month, this random doohicky.

Phone Ring Amynoos

I got this phone ring for Christmas. I have a “phablet” …or in plain ol’ English, a blooming big phone. I had got really good with my previous “regular” sized phone at using it with one hand but have struggled with my current phone. This simple little gadget certainly solves that issue.

I stuck it onto my gold glitter cover, and as it is slightly gold toned and I think they look really good together.

You can also use the ring as a stand, which is brilliant for when you are watching Youtube videos!

I really have loved it because my phone now feels secure again. I was always terrified of dropping it when using it one handed, but with the ring I know I have a good grip. It also comes with a hook that you can loop the ring over. I have not used this yet because I am not sure where to stick it. I imagine it would be quite good to use in your car, or if you regularly use your phone as a music or video player somewhere to stick it there. I just haven’t found the correct spot yet.

I would definitely recommend getting one if you have a larger phone and struggle with holding it.
