Doddle says Relax with Secret Santa


When I was asked back in November to take part in a secret santa challenge in participation with Doddle trailing their Runner app exclusive for Londoners I was very much interested. If you haven't seen Doddle's cute 'santa's little helpers' adverts posted all over the tube network then you'll be sure to find one at a popular railway station near you. Doddle are a parcel company which aims to make sending and receiving parcels easy. They also offer a 'Runner' service exclusive for Londoners.

For this challenge I was asked to visit another bloggers website to get a feel for what would make them relax across the festive period. For my secret santa I chose a luxurious candle which I knew was sure to bring peace and relaxation to anyone's home. In return I received a Cath Kidston kit including a very english mug (perfect for my cuppa!) a makeup/wash bag and some lip balms. Although it was a lovely gift Cath Kidston couldn't be farther from my taste so unfortunately I felt the gift didn't quite represent me or my blog, but the mug is a definite winner as I love my tea & coffee!

Back to Doddle, one of the friendliest and most efficient parcel companies I have used in recent years. Using the runner app which I downloaded in the Appstore on my iPhone, I simply signed up (this took a couple of mins) and took a photo of the item I wished to send, typed in my pick up address (this has to be within one of these London postcodes; EC1-4, WC1, WC2, SE1, SW1, W1, W2, (it can be a coffee shop, work or home address) and the delivery address (this can be anywhere in the UK). The app will then assign a runner to you and an estimated time of when they will collect. The staff are extremely friendly and explain how the entire process works, all parcels are sent next day delivery. Within 2 hours of me ordering the collection someone was at my work address to collect, with it arriving the next day.

Doddle is certainly a must-try especially for those important parcels which need to be delivered quick when you don't have time to queue at the post office! For more information on Doddle stores and the Runner App check out their website.

7 Days with Ann Summers Hosiery

Leather Jacket by ASOS, Skirt by Zara, Top by ASOS, Shoes by Christian Louboutin, Bag by Alexander McQueen, Tights c/o Ann Summers (Plain Top Seamed Glossy Stockings in Nude)

When you hear the word Hosiery it probably reminds you of frumpy stockings your grandma used to wear, but fear not Hosiery has grown up a bit since then and now oozes sex appeal thanks to a helping hand from the masters of sex, Ann Summers. Hosiery is so much easier than we initially think to incorporate into everyday outfits and a pair of tights can even go as far as to make an outfit! I am always looking at ways of making my outfits more playful and bringing a bit more of my personality out and the High Shine Bow Over The Knee in Black Tights are by far by favourite (see below) 

As the winter nights are drawing in and we begin to layer up I refuse to hide my legs in pair after pair of jeans so finding the right pair of tights or stockings is essential. To check out Ann Summers latest Hosiery for both inside and outside the bedroom click here. ;)

Interior Inspiration

All images via @Pinterest

My passion and obsession with interiors continues and Pinterest is my main source of inspiration. Though our home is almost complete decor wise, it will never be 'finished' as I am forever changing my mind on colours and styles (much to Karl's annoyance). To see more of what inspires me - plus a few wedding boards, head over to my pinterest page.
