Product of the Month-January!

Hello My Lovelies

Welcome back to my product of the month and my first of 2018!A little late I know but I still wanted to share with you something I've been loving throughout January. This month I have not stopped wearing this item since I was gifted them on Christmas Day- little did I know that I needed this product so much and now that I have them I don't think I could ever live without them again! The item I 'm speaking of is slippers, Toms slippers!!



I didn't know that Toms even did slippers till my boyfriend gave them to me, he knows that last summer I wore my Toms shoes every single day and so when he spotted that they did slippers too he just knew I would love them. He was right too, as a non slipper wearer I thought I might not enjoy popping them on my feet but the furry insides are like wearing clouds and I long for getting home from work and slipping them on!

At a fraction of the Ugg price tag (I was tempted this year by them) and that they help children across the world with their shoe for a shoe campaign I'm more than happy that I'm rocking these on my feet this winter!

Do you own any shoes or slippers from Toms? Let me know in the comments your favourite pair.

Till next time,
                  Tori.

DIY Valentines Present Idea!

Hello My Lovelies

Valentines is just around the corner and I thought I'd share with you a present I've made for my boyfriend that's cheap, simple and easy to make and will make who ever you give this to smile.
The gift I've decided to make is like a scratch card! Read on to see what it looks like and what's under each!
I originally saw this on Facebook and saved the video for ages and decided for Valentines this was the perfect time to try it. So firstly I'm useless at this type of thing and most people will make this look super gorgeous but for me it was just to try it out and to give a gift that's a bit different.
First of all you'll need some acrylic paint in silver, a paint brush, scissors, paper, contact paper (the stuff you used to cover your school books in if it wasn't wall paper) and a small amount of washing up liquid.


So...you take a bowl and add a small amount of the washing up liquid and a blob of the silver paint and you mix the two. On a piece of paper and on the contact paper draw out the shape you are going to write your gift or idea which will then go under the scratch card paint.

I decided to put things like ice cream night or you get to watch YouTube all night etc.- they are cheap and easy presents which can be redeemed when ever the recipient wants!

You then add the paint over the plastic side of the contact paper which is covering your paper and wait for it to dry!

Once it's dry you're ready to cut out and add to a card or present and wait for them to scratch away to see what's underneath!


And...whala you have a fun gift to give! Have you ever made a DIY present before- if so make sure you share it with me below or on Twitter @steaders83.

Till next time,
                  Tori.

A Mini January Sales Haul!

Hello My Lovelies

So each year I always have a look at the January sales to see what there is about and every year I always wish I put some extra cash by to pick up some bargains. This year was absolutely no different and so only a few items made their way home with me. Read on to see what I chose...

First up are the most amazingly soft leather boots from Topshop-I spotted them and straight away fell in love with the square front, then I saw the slight v at the top, a small but nice every day heel and the softness I knew I had to try them on. They are actually a size to big for me but felt pretty comfy and since I've bought them I've added a fluffy insole which have made them pretty much the perfect boot.

This top I spotted in Matalan ten minutes before they were about to close on Christmas Eve- it is such a lovely material and the colours on Amour will be perfect to wear this summer tucked into skirts or with jeans in the evening.

Finally I picked up the mustard jumper and purple/gold spotty t-shirt in the Marks and Spencer sale- you literally can't beat their Christmas sales I always end up buying a few bits from them, the jumper was a £5.50 down from I think £19.50 and the purple top was £2.50. I also popped into Tesco and bought this black and gold sparkly dress for £9.00 I thought it will be perfect for next Christmas or possibly my birthday in April!

What did you pick up in the sales I would love to see your bargains! Make sure you share everything with me in the comments or on twitter @steaders83.
