Life + Flowers

Debenhams Christmas flowers discount code
Christmas Lily and Rose Bouquet c/o Debenhams Flowers.


I'm on my own tonight as Ross is off away in Europe on tour with his band Chain of Flowers. I've slammed some chips in the over, bought a can of 'ting' and am binge-watching Louis Theroux on Netflix!

I'm off to Devon tomorrow after an exciting little meeting to set-up me hopefully volunteering for the Cats Protection at their center! I really want to work with animals and I don't have many qualifications so this is such an awesome foot in the door and I can't wait to give back some love to the kitties who have been abandoned.

I've got a November favorites video coming up too but depending on how much time I have it may be up in December (which is like 4 days?! Crazy!).

I was sent these gorgeous flowers pictured from Debenhams Flowers and they have some great Christmas treats on their site which you can get 40% off using this code: DFBLOG40

They have free nextday delivery too which is great! My flowers are almost 10 days old now and still look gorgeous and have filled my flat with the smell of Oriental lillies (which are kept waaay out of the way from Prince!) and decorated with berries and folded green leaves.

First up I want to say a huge thankyou to everyone who watched, commented, liked and subscribed to my Youtube channel after my first Youtube video - it mean't so much and I'm excited to share my next video with you!

uk blog style

It was pretty windy out so my hair looks messy as haha! Like I said in my video I just love the fit of this dress it's massive and flowy and makes me feel comfortable about my weight.
I also love that I can wear this without tights and just wear some chunky boots with some cable knit socks (that I also got from H&M and just lovee how cozy they are!).

This week I'm going back home which I cannot wait for, I love getting away from Cardiff and working and just being able to relax in home comforts.

Sadly today my bunny (who was featured in one of my first ever posts) Oliver had to be put to sleep as he was 6 years old and ill.

Hope you have had a great weekend!

Cowbiscuits Vlog - Embarking into the world of YouTube

SO I bit the blog bullet and decided to 'Vlog' and hit up the weird world of Youtube!

First of all here is my Youtube link:


If you have Youtube I would LOVE for you to subscribe and give my little video a 'thumbs up'. I'd also love some feedback on what to vlog about and who your fave people to watch on Youtube are as I want to follow some more!

I hope to do another one for next week and this time *fingers crossed* get the camera to focus on my face not the background but I feel I may need some practise and time with that one.

Anyway like I said leave your links, your fave links and any tips with me I would love to hear it all!

Festive Afternoon Tea with the Celtic Manor

festive afternoon tea blog


Well I've been super ill so been in bed all week! I've missed a bunch of blog events however attempted to cart myself out of bed on Saturday for a special festive afternoon tea with the Celtic Manor.
It was only a couple of hours and I thought a little pampering with cake would make me feel a tiny bit better.

If you don't know, the Celtic Manor is a huge hotel and resort that as you come into Wales via the Severn Bridge is unmissable- it's massive! It recently played host to the Nato summit where president Obama kipped in one of their new 'Hunter' style lodges - fancy!

Anyway we were greeted by the gorgeous India who took 11 of us blog-types to a room where the Xmas decorations were up and Buble was singing his head off on the stereo - Christmas was here!!

We were served mulled wine in glass teapots with their own jumper :') You know I was ill because I turned down the wine (yes I turned DOWN wine) in favour of some Assam tea to sooth my little throat.

We all did a group cracker pulling and I was soo lucky to have won a paperclip! Woohoo! I donned my hat regardless of it being November as we were here for an exclusive try of the Celtic Manor Festive Afternoon Tea!

There was 1 between 2 of us and I kicked off with the finger sandwhiches, my fave being roast turkey and cranberry and the chicken and stuffing mayo. I'm not a fan of salmon or prawns so I left those for my partner in food crime, Amy. But I did tuck into the Caerphilly cheese and leek mini tarts!

CAAAKKEE! They looked so cute I couldn't bring myself to eat them... well that's a lie because I totally did. My faves were the Pistachio cone, the cherry and apricot Florentine and also the mini Christmas pudding which was boozy and had white chocolate inside!

And just when I thought I couldn't fit any more food inside of me.. out rolled the candied-peel scones - of course with jam and cream!

To see the full line-up of treats in more detail then take a look see here.

It was such a relaxed atmosphere, it was lush to get out of the house and breathe some fresh air and chat to fellow blog pals!

Thanks again to the team at the Celtic Manor for an awesome afternoon and I can't wait to see what's instore for 2015!

Golden Pineapple Candle

gold pineapple figure homeware blog

I. Am. In. Love!

YES! In love with an inanimate object! This gorgeous M&S gold pineapple is everything I want, it's tacky and it's a candle...

As if my fireplace can't get any tackier with the weird things inside of it, this bad boy just got added.

I saw this on a press release for gifts by M&S and had to run and grab it in store after work. When I picked it up I was dead chuffed with the weight of it - it's heavy! I'm so glad that the ceramic gold pineapple is actually filled with the candle giving it 65 hours of burning time.

Gold Pineapple filled Candle - £19.50 from M&S.

The website says the scent is 'Neroli Lime and Basil' but on the tag of the product it says it is 'Patchouli and Clove' which it definitely is, it smells incredible! I love deep scents and when I got home and lit it, the whole living room smelt incredible.

I'm so tempted to grab another one as I think 2 would look awesome on opposite ends of my fireplace.

What do you think of my big, golden pineapple?! It reminds me of Kate from GhostParties Pineapple lamp which is also amazing!

Also if anybody in the world can help me - I am DESPERATE for this Snake Mirror and this Geo Sunburst Mirror but it's only on the Urban Outfitters USA store that wont ship to the UK :'(
