CHRISTMAS || Christmas at Esquires Coffee Coventry.

Christmas is well and truly on it's way...the lights have been switched on, shops are filled with gifts and decorations, mince pies are everywhere you look and christmas shopping is on the to do list! And one of my favourite things to do when Chtistmas shopping, is taking a well needed break with a festive drink and something to eat.

And recently, me and a few of the girls from Cov Bloggers were invited down to Esquires Coffee to try their new christmas drinks and food. 

When i first entered the shop I was blown away by their attention to detail with the display they had set up. It was the most Christmassy thing I had seen...and made me want to put my decorations immediately... It was gorgeous! And filled with the so many tempting treats for our taste buds.

When everyone arrived, it was time to try their Christmas drinks menu. There are three options in their Christmas drinks menu, each just as magical as the other. There is a Golden Flat White, which is a flat white with a touch …

CHRISTMAS || Cosy Club Christmas Menu.

I just love this time of year...the cosy jumpers, beanie hats and scarves, the decorations, the chill in the air...but most of all the food! Festive food is the best, especially Christmas meals out with friends or family. Every year I look forward to sharing a delicious feast whilst spending some quality with those close to me. 

And recently I was invited by the Cosy Club to try their new Christmas Menu, which is available from 22nd November till 24th December (Christmas Eve). You can either book online here or go into your local Cosy Club in person to book. It costs £27.95 for 3 courses, and they do ask for a depoist of £10 per person. 

You can also preorder a mulled wine or cider, or Durello reception for your arrival which is only £3.95 per person for the mulled wine or cider and £5.95 per person for the Durello. You can also pre order bottles of wine and beer or pitchers of cocktails to go with your meal if you wanted to as well. 

So onto the main event...the food!

LIFESTYLE || Ballxrs Coventry... Coventry's one and only adult ball pit!

As a kid, one of the best things was Soft play, especially if they had a ball pit! I would spend most of my time in the ball pit, throwing balls around, hiding from my sisters or friends, or just diving endlessly into the pit...childhood heaven! So when adult ball pits started to pop up around the country, the excitement started to build. And when I found out one was opening in Coventry, I couldn't contain my excitement!

So when a few of us from Coventry Bloggers got invited along to see what it was all about, of course I had to go!

Ballxrs owner Sam Burne, who is a Coventry local too,  wanted to open a bar where there is actually something to do other than stand around and drink, and the outcome was Ballxrs... a all in one activity bar.

And its definitely something special! The bar itself is a great size,  plenty of space to move about. The booths are for private hire, so they could do with a few extra seats around but apart from that it was great.

There's a wide selection o…

HAUL // Lush Halloween 2018.

Ah I love this time of year! The leaves are changing colour, the air is crispier and everything just feels cosy! But most importantly, Lush get there Halloween and Christmas range in! And of course I had to go pick a few bits!
It's only a small haul this time, and is mostly Halloween products with one Christmas product that I just had to try!
I will be picking up some Christmas bits very soon so look out for that!

So let's get stuck in!
The first thing I had to pick up was of course Lord of Misrule bath bomb which is one of my all time favourites from Lush. I've bought this year after year, and i'm definitely making sure I stock up this year! I hope they never discontinue this! You can also get it in a Shower cream Online which is great if you love the scent but don't like baths/don't have a bath at home. Its spicy herbal scent isn't my usual go to at lush, but there's something about this blend that just draws me in and makes me feel all cosy and ready for…

LIFESTYLE // FarGo Village's Autumn Makers Market.

FarGo village is probably one of my favourite places in Coventry. The mixture of its urban setting, the stunning street art and unique local businesses…it's the perfect place if you want something different from the normal high street shops and cafes.

Fargo also have fun and unique events on a regular basis, such as food festivals, vintage fairs and Makers Markets.

Recently I went to the Autumn Maker's Market on behalf of Coventry Bloggers,which is a seasonal market that gives local creatives and small businesses an opportunity to showcase what they do and sell their products. This was my first time visiting the market and I will definitely be going back to the next one! 

When I arrived, I met up with Lucy who is FarGo’s event manager who was really lovely and welcoming and made me feel at ease which was so nice considering this was the first time I'd ever done something like this without other Bloggers around! She told me about the makers market and their passion for suppo…


So the other week, I went to another amazing Coventry Bloggers Event,  arranged by the lovely Emily of Drained Beauty, this time at the Body Shop in Coventry City Centre. 
I'll admit before I went to this event, my knowledge on the Body Shop was limited. I used to always get a gift set from there from an auntie every Christmas and I've followed them on Social Media for awhile now, but it's been awhile since I've tried anything by them. I had misconceptions that they were expensive and out of my price range, but how wrong I was. 
Now onto the event itself!

Most of us met outside before the event, and I have to give a shout out to these girls. Some of them I've met quite a few times already and some I only first met at the event...but they are all amazing, friendly and encouraging people! They have restored my faith in the blogging community, and that's helping me to grow in confidence as a blogger.
When we entered the Body Shop, we were greeted by two lovely st…
