A little Serial… 🖤

A Collaboration with Photowall.

As for many of us in the UK, head into a third lockdown. Being stuck inside at home, could be a chance to re-evaluate our home style, maybe even redecorate a little. Could you be looking for a pop of colour, a nature scene, or maybe looking for a statement wall for your children’s bedroom.

Luckily for you, Swedish company photowall have something for everyone. All amazing quality and price too. Plus a speedy delivery, I received my package within a few days. Although I know I ordered a hanging print.

As a horror fan, I took this opportunity to order a horror print. My all time favourite horror film, will always be the Texas chainsaw massacre.

Leather Face 🖤

I had the time of my life when my parcel was delivered. It was big. Almost my big K2SO Star Wars poster (from the cinema) big. I ordered 100cm x 140cm leather face print. On paper I didn’t think this was going to be that big.

Sizing up the job 😆

It came essentially flat packed, but included everything needed to hang it. Even the small detail of a nail. The instructions were clear and concise, certainly easy to follow. I found the most time consuming activity was threading the hanging thread onto the wooden top frame. That was one fiddly job. But it looks so good, I’m beyond happy with it!

Instructions 👍

I hung it in the hallway, to get an idea of it hanging, and the size. I hugely overestimated the size. It is now safely stored ready for when I move into my own place, so I can display it then with pride.

Hallway Hanging… 😅

Post Lockdown Pamper.

Straight out the gate, I went down to Virtue Hair and Beauty. As their first customer, post COVID lock down. A local run business in Bristol. Recently moved into a beautiful very instagram picture worthy unit. I will be back in the future, when I’m able too.

They’ve implemented many safe practices, working in such an uncertain time. Full PPE, masks, distance and cleaning regularly is all in effect. I went to get my hair trimmed, for the first time in half a year, and get an undercut put in. A hairstyle I’ve wanted for years, but never got a chance to get.

Polite, friendly and talkative, very much makes you feel at home, while being pampered. I had a whole cut, shaved, washed, blow dried and straightened. I absolutely loved it. And although the pattern is now outgrown in my hair so quickly, if I ever want it again, I’ll be back.

Visit their insta and website. Show them some support in this time. I completely recommend them! Just see how good my hair looks.

A stylish addiction. 👗🌸

Just my experience, Not Sponsored by Stitch Fix. All clothes here fit a size 18.

Much like many mums, I have been living in either work uniform or pjs, for the past 3 years +, I also have no idea how to style my body right, especially after feeling 100% unattractive lately. I thought I should do something about it.

I stumbled upon a site called Stitch Fix. Its no ordinary subscription service. You set up your style profile, with your size, budget and preferences. And then every fix, contains a few handpicked items from your stylist. You can set how often you receive these. I set my one to every three months. However there’s options from weekly, monthly, bimonthly and every three months.

When your fix arrives, it comes with an invoice, telling you about the picks and their prices in stores. As well as a cute little introductions from your stylist, and outfit suggestions. You simply try on, and review on your account. Any items you’d like to keep, you pay for. And then you return the rest back in the same box with a prepaid label. All free of charge. The stylist fee is automatically deducted, from what you buy, and if you choose to buy the whole box, they deduct 20% from the total.

My first invoice.

Upon first impressions, I was impressed, though unsure about the fit. I received 2 dresses, 2 tops and a pair of jeans. Now I filled in my sizes, I don’t know what my jean size is. So was sure this pair of jeans, wasn’t going to fit. The dresses had a spotty theme, and the tops; one a burgundy wrap style top, the other one, a dark green batwing sweater. These styles are meant to compliment an hourglass figure.

My cute introduction.

I tried everything on, and I was surprised by the immediate confidence boost I felt. For a change I wasn’t in baggy clothes, and jeans that barely fit. My first big shock was that these jeans, they sent, fit me like a glove. They was a nice cut, though not tight. Similar to my usual skinny jeans. I also tried on a black and pink spots tea dress, which was very flattering. It was a great feminine take on my usual alternative style.

I tried on the second dress, a navy and white spotty wrap dress. I love the idea of a wrap dress, being able to choose my waistline. However this particular dress, didn’t fall right on my body. The jersey material felt heavy, and was shorter at the back then the front. Due to how it fell over my rear. In terms of the tops, I loved the colours. And I liked the style of the burgundy top. Both felt nice on too, in my size. However I am not a batwing style kind of girl.

Safe to say, I purchased the jeans and the tea dress, as a treat to myself. I reviewed the box online, and sent back the others easily and completely free. I’m also super excited to see what is in my next Stitch Fix Box. I recommend it and they have a section for men’s too. Suitable for all. Check out this link for more information.

Post V day haul: Sainsburys 💝

So on my little trip to my local Sainsbury’s, I thought he why not check out the valentines stuff the day after, V Day. When you’ve been in a relationship as long as 6 years, valentines day loses its gimmick. Plus theres way too much pressure, and also way too expensive, for little items, such as pens and small teddies. So imagine my happiness with the post V day reductions. I got something to cover all bases; gifts for her, him and the gals.

Gifts for her.

Novelty dog teddy: £2.50 – cute medium sized dog teddy, with heart ears headband. Full priced estimate £8.00.

Grey Throw: £1.50 – grey fleece throw, love xo and hearts printed. Full price £8.

Blanket & Teddy

Gifts for him.

Male Grooming Kit: £4.00 – leather grooming bag, filled with a few beard grooming products and comb. Full priced £12.00

Grey Mug: 50p – grey ceramic mug, ‘I can’t believe we’ve tolerated each other for so long’ printed. Full price £2.00

Mug & Grooming Products

Gifts for the girls.

Tote bag: £1.00 – simple tote bag, so over it printed. Full price £5.00.

Tote Bag

There was many other items left, just too many to choose from. The above were just my picks for the haul. Certainly a smart idea if your saving money for big things like house deposits or weddings. Many items for Galentines too, even party decorations so you can celebrate this with your girl friends. Amazing how things of changed.

If you’ve enjoyed this, let me know, I’ll do more post holiday/season hauls.

Blissful Nights 😴

Bedtime Bliss UK approached me to trail one of their products. Which I was super excited to do. They sent me out their bedtime bliss eye mask to trail. Now I’ve had a lot of unsuccessful past eye mask adventures in the past, so much so I had lost all faith in them, to the point where I stopped buying.

I trailed this mask for 7 nights, once it arrived. It came in the cutest, daintiest packaging, which I wasn’t expecting. Simple but straight to the point. The mask is made from foam, and has an ergonomic design, designed to fit comfortably on the face, with an elastic band to keep it fastened around the back of your head. This helps keep the eye mask in place, for sleepers who move around in their sleep.

Their black out quality also is helpful. Especially for those individuals who have partners who wake up earlier then them, and just throw the bedroom light on. Wearing this eye mask there is no interruptions with light, to your sleep. My week I spent using this product, was the best week’s sleep, I’ve ever had.

I recommend this item so much, I’ll include the link here, so you guys can see the product for yourself. It’s a reasonable price, but in my opinion it’s worth it. Let me know your thoughts.

Aloha Summer, Aloha Kai Swimwear

I have been absolutely excited since finding out I was invited to become a brand ambassador for Aloha Kai Swimwear. I’ve been following this brand for a while, since seeing them first on Instagram.

From pretty two piece bikinis to beautiful, flattering swimsuits. The perfect holiday wardrobe, with accessories and fun printed beach towels. Their store really does cater to every woman.

I’ve ordered several pieces to review, and I’m buzzing to see them come in the post. I’m a little nervous if I’m being honest about body image. Especially since having my son. But every body is a bikini body. For my body personally I’ve gone with a high waisted style. I feel like this will help me feel confident, while keeping my stretch marks from my recent pregnancy covered. I’ll be sure to upload my summer selfies on Instagram, as RebeccaKLxo.

Below is a direct link to their site, so you can check out their summer 2018 look book for yourself, and if you’re going away, treat yourself to a stylish bikini or swimsuit.

https://alohakaiswim.grsm.io/RebeccaKLxo 

Below are my top choices off their site, in both swimwear categories.

  • Sea Sand Bikini Set.
  • Palm One Piece

Although narrowing my choice down was incredibly difficult.  I love all the options on this site, and knowing me, I’ll definitely build an entire wardrobe from this site. Both pieces I’ve chosen, are a blend of spandex and polyester.

The sea sand bikini is a simple but chic one coloured two piece. The bikini top has a cute frill detail on it, which keeps it femininity subtle.

The Palm One Piece is a stylish fun piece to ay woman’s wardrobe. The white and green colours contrast and compliment each other. The palm leaves are a very in summer print/style.

I’d love to see what bikini you’d go for, and see your summer selfies on Instagram. My username is RebeccaKLxo, I follow everyone back! So go over and say hello, let me know you read my blog.

More with Aloha Kai Swim, will be coming soon.  If you like what you’ve seen in this post, let me know if you’d like to see more posts like it. And don’t forget to check out this beautiful site: https://alohakaiswim.grsm.io/RebeccaKLxo

Amphora Aromatics: Product Review

I’ve had the pleasure of testing out an essential oil product from Amphora Aromatics. I saw this brand at a health and beauty blogger event I attended a few weeks back. After talking with the lovely representative, about my blog, my life as a new first time mum, and interest in essential oils, but never knew where to start. She suggested that I try one from their new range; aromatherapy blends.

After my old diffuser breaking, (I accidentally knocked it off a shelf) I bought a cute oil diffuser from Wilkos; Formerly Wilkinsons. It’s white, with heart shapes cut out of it, a quaint little cube shaped one. I love it. With a plain tea light, I used this blend every night,  after I set my son down for bed. I used it for that nice relaxing, time before I went down to bed. Until the tea light is burnt out.

They’ve launched their newest aromatherapy blend range. This range includes Focus, Revive, Energise and Sleep. There’s something for everyone. These come in the cutest little bottles, packaged in the cutest little boxes.

I had the honour of testing out the Relax blend. After it was matched to me. It perfectly fitted into my lifestyle as a first time mother. I must say it’s really amazing. I will certainly be getting more! I look after my son all day, while his father is at work, which I have to admit is stressful, and doesn’t give me a lot of time to relax. This oil is made up of a blend, formulated to compliment each other well, so no unpleasant scents. Not that I expected this, but sometimes when you mix smells together they don’t work. This product is the complete opposite. The nice smell, is pretty addictive. It certainly does what it says on the tin.

Here’s a link to their online store, so you can check out Amphora Aromatics, for yourself. I recommend them, to fellow essential oils enthusiasts. They also have a range of products to suit everyone, from aromatherapy products, skincare, creams, gels, balms and wipes, to name a few. All made from natural organic ingredients. The quality of their products are high quality and reasonably priced.
