Go Ape! Haldon Forest | Lifestyle

Go Ape! is a day out we've wanted to experience for a long time. So last Saturday on our little trip to Dorset, Shehzad and I decided we wanted to make the most of our time off and booked a Tree Top Adventure at Go Ape! Haldon Forest (just outside of Exeter) and dragged along my sister and her boyfriend.
The weather could not have been better, the sun was shining with a little cool breeze. We were ready to climb some trees and fly through the air like little monkeys!!

Armani Jeans SS15 and House of Fraser | Menswear

There's no denying that Shehzad is the more fashionable in this relationship, the fashionmister if you will. His half of the wardrobe outshines mine, with beautiful polos and plenty of trainers. He is a trainer king! One thing he lacks though is a smart shirt for dinner dates and special occasions.
That's where House of Fraser stepped in and kindly offered him the opportunity to pick a shirt for our upcoming engagement photoshoot. After searching the website of casual shirts, he decided on this lovely Armani Jeans All over Logo Print Shirt*.
We absolutely love the colour of this shirt, some of you may already know that my favourite colour, with most of my dresses and tops being this burgundy colour. The print is stunning and the contrasting denim pocket and button down strip just give it that nice dressed down kind of look.
What Shehzad loves about this shirt is that it's so versatile, it can be dressed down with jeans and desert boots or trainers for daywear and dressed up with some nice trousers and shoes in the evening.
Today is Shehzad's 28th Birthday and he is going out for dinner with his friends in the evening (boo, I'm at work). So he's teamed the Armani logo print shirt with his favourite black skinny jeans from Burton, black Nike Free Run 2's and some of his favourite jewellery from Thomas Sabo and Links of London and watch from Thomas Sabo. Trust me when I say he owns more jewellery than I do *sigh*.

He's pointed out a few items from Armani Jeans that he would love to update his wardrobe with this SS15 so here's a little glimpse of what he's got his eye on.

Wishing Shehzad a big Happy Birthday! Keep your eyes peeled for more of Shehzad on the blog!

Makeup Revolution | Wednesday Wishlist

I haven't done a beauty wishlist in what feels like forever. Makeup Revolution is a brand I really want to try after seeing such good reviews of certain products (brow arch & shape and blushing hearts to name just two). I really want to be more adventurous with my makeup when I'm out of work. I don't usually wear eyeshadow or bold lipstick, opting for a small flick of eyeliner and sweep of clear lipgloss instead. Makeup Revolution have some incredible products and their prices are so affordable, how could anyone not want to try them?!

Valentine's Day | Lifestyle

Whether you're spending today with your other half or you're giving yourself some 'me time' I want to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day and I hope you have a beautiful day and too a wonderful weekend! Shehzad and I won't be doing anything for Valentine's Day as we're both working but I am looking forward to going for brunch and shopping next week on our day off :)
So today I thought I'd just share an easy peasy recipe for the brownies above, I whipped these up yesterday morning and they went down a storm. He didn't even realise they were from a packet :p We also exchanged cards and gifts, I was shocked at the gorgeous gifts he picked out for me!

First up the delicious brownies. When I'm feeling lazy and don't have much time I will admit I reach for the packet mix. But what's wrong with that? Everything is weighed out for you in the packet, all you have to do is add an egg a little water and some oil, mix and bake. EASY! These brownies are the Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix, with three added extras. I like a little extra texture so I chop up a standard bar of Galaxy Milk Chocolate (cheeky I know) and a carton of glace cherries (cherries and chocolate, delicious!) and I pop a rolo on top just to make them extra special! After baking in a normal cake tray for around 20 minutes, I simply used a heart shaped cutter to make two little heart shaped brownies. I then cut up the rest into squares for my colleagues and work lunch boxes. They're so moist and gooey in the middle with a perfect crunch on the top. Next time you're craving some warm brownies I definitely recommend reaching for the Betty Crocker mix!

Next, my absolutely stunning gifts and the first two are so perfect I just didn't have words when I opened them. Just like a Christmas present post, I am no way boasting. I just wanted to share how spot on my fiancé is with gift buying and come on, who doesn't like a gift post really?! It's like he reads my blog because I literally just featured them on my Disney wishlist recently! The Anna Animator Doll and Merida Animator Doll. They are so adorable and the perfect start to my collection! I don't want to unbox them until I get a new bookshelf to display them on but when I do I will be doing a video and post about them :D

And finally two ever so thoughtful pieces from Links of London. The Secret Eclipse Love Pendant. Such a gorgeous locket-style necklace featuring a revolving disc with a secret message inside. The letter T charm in silver for my charm bracelet. Eventually I want to have my initials across it with my initial when I change my surname after marriage :)

Don't worry, I did get him some gifts (not pictures because I didn't get a chance before he started using it all). But I treated him to a Grey Skull Friendship bracelet from Links of London. Trust me, he loves skull bracelets and has all the Thomas Sabo ones -__- He also got a selection of The Body Shop goodies including lots of cocoa butter scented goodies (his favourite). The main treat I guess was the F1 2014 World Championship Review - something I knew he had wanted for a while. He is a massive Lewis Hamilton fan!

What did you do for Valentine's Day? I'd love to see your Valentine's posts if you've done any so please share them in the comments below :)
