Chelsea Flower Show Fashion: Floral Treats Inspired By The Show

Well hello there. It's been a while, hasn't it?

I'd like to apologise for my lack of social media presence of late (well, since Christmas actually which is when I last posted!). I've been wrapped up in the big old world of work, which has generally meant that any time I've had outside of work has been spent avoiding staring at a computer screen.

Basically I've spent a lot of time in the pub, or exploring many of London's culinary and cultural delights (as those who follow me on Instagram will be fully aware of!).

But I figured that now the days are getting longer and I've fully adjusted into my work routine at HuffPost, it's time to get back into the swing of things with the blog because, quite frankly, I've missed you guys.

So, to ease myself back into things, I've compiled a little lookbook of a few floral-themed treats I've been eyeing up in time for payday. And of course, they're 100% inspired by this week's Chelsea Flower Show.

Enjoy x

12 Days To Go And I'm Super UGG-cited For Christmas

Slippers, £70, UGG*

Christmas is just around the corner and I can't actually cope with the excitement anymore. I've regressed to my five-year-old self and I'm convinced that if I carry on this way I'll totally implode soon. Eek!

Despite excitement-overload, I'm super behind on the Christmas shopping front. And when I say behind, I mean I've bought like three presents. Yep, I've still got a long way to go. This weekend I'm planning on getting my bum into gear and making a fair dent on the xmas present list that I'm yet to make. I find Christmas shopping is so hard to focus on and, often, I don't even know where to begin. It also requires a lot of motivation to go to a shopping centre which you know will be incredibly packed - and in London it's ten times worse. Plus, after all of that, in the back of my mind I'm trying to figure out how I'll get all of the presents back to Telford on the train next weekend. It's a bad back situation waiting to happen.

In other present-related news, I've been very fortunate to have the opportunity to review a pair of UGG slippers over the past few weeks. Despite nearly crying when I thought I'd spilt tea on them (I hadn't, don't worry) I've since come to the conclusion that I don't know how I lived without them before now. Not only are they super comfy and keep my toes incredibly warm, but they also look really cool. Je suis impressed. They sometimes remind me of super stylish oven gloves - albeit on my feet. But I'm totally fine with that.

In other news I went to an event the other day at a place called T2 Tea, near Sloane Square tube station, and was so surprised at the amazingness of it all that I felt compelled to share. As a tea-lover, I'm no stranger to tea-related gifts, and I found that these guys are on another level when it comes to gift ideas. I genuinely wanted to buy everything in there. They had everything from creme brûlée teas, strawberry ice tea and breakfast tea, to gorgeous Alice In Wonderland-esque teapots and tea accessories. 

Basically what I'm getting at is that if you have any friends that love tea as much as I do, you should definitely check T2 out for Christmas gift ideas.

Peace out x
