*Must-have Zaful Swimsuits

It seems the sun has finally decided to come around and that can only mean one thing, S U M M E R is coming! There is nothing quite like a yellow bathing suit, one that's bold and appealing to the naked eye. This summer is all about living; merely existing in this world just won't cut it; what better way to start than stocking up on the perfect swimsuits. The high cut bottoms and cute ruffles are a nice touch, no accessories needed. If yellow is too bold for you, how about something that's sure to give you a sense of peace and serenity. You guessed it, I'm talking about the white bathing suit.

A white swimsuit is definitely a summer staple. It doesn't have to be plain white either as they come in a variety of prints. Zaful has quickly become one of my favourite brands, I'm especially fond of their dresses and of course swimsuits. Picture this; a hot summer's day on the beach, donning a stand out swimsuit, strawberry daiquiri in hand; now that sounds like a perfect day.

Chicken & Green Bean Curry

It seems I have lost all motivation when it comes to revision and so I turned my focus to cooking instead this evening. There is nothing quite like a delicious chicken curry to get your mood up after a long day of schooling. The British Heart Foundation publish some awesome, nutritious recipes on their website and yes you've guessed it; that's where I found this little gem of a recipe. 
I'm more than willing to cook up anything that's curry related, the flavour and aroma keeps me going back for more. I did tweak the recipe a little but this is due to my rather fussy palate. This chicken & green bean curry is absolutely delightful; a dish that the whole family can enjoy.

Teapigs Mao Feng Green Tea

With it's delicate, refreshing taste that feels like a warm summer's day, Mao Feng sure is a top contender. All my tea lovers where you at? Summer's approaching fast and with the weather getting warmer, tea will most likely be left behind which is very unfortunate. Well it sure won't be left behind in my world. Hot or cold, tea is my number go to beverage due to its comforting ability as well as the health benefits that come with it. Teapigs have been on a mission since 2006; their mission, to get the nation drinking tea again. A mission I'm more than happy to support as I'm an avid tea drinker, one that always goes for the mug that tells a story.

This is the first of their teas I've ever tried and of course I went for Mao feng green tea; a strong favourite of mine. Now the most important question as always is what is in this tea? Absolutely nothing but pure Mao feng green tea. Now that's music to my ears.

The Addams family was one of my favourite childhood movies, it still is one of the favs. And well, every 90s girl out there has dressed like Wednesday Addams at one point or another and that's how I'm feeling in this monochrome get up. I'm currently into all things cute and my space buns are definitely here to stay; I mean what could possibly go wrong? My course is nearly over and it's finally starting sink in. I've made so many amazing friends but unfortunately we will all be going our separate ways to pursue our chosen careers. Some are now life long friends and I cannot wait to visit the new cities they will be making their new home. Phht, who needs hotels when you have friends dotted around the UK.
