Padrino’s Pizza, Dundee – Review

Padrino’s Pizza, Dundee – Review

Hi guys, and welcome back. Today I’ll be doing a review of the new pizza restaurant in Dundee, Scotland – Padrino’s Pizza! This is a great, little place just a few minutes walk away from the train station. My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to be invited for a complimentary meal in return for a review, so I want to start by thanking the lovely people at Padrino’s Pizza for having us! We had a lovely time, and such delicious food.

Not only that, but the atmosphere was great! It is a small restaurant, with around 5 tables and a breakfast-style bar looking out onto the street. Don’t let that put you off, however, as it doesn’t feel “small” as such – cosy would be a better word to describe it. As it starts to get darker outside, the lighting becomes very atmospheric and warm. I almost didn’t want to leave by the time it came to go home – I was very comfortable there, and the staff were very welcoming, too!

Autumn Candle Haul

Autumn Candle Haul

I don’t think any blogger can enter a new season without writing about another of their (many) candle hauls. I’m proud to tell you guys that I’m no different! Today, I’ll be taking you through my recent Autumn candle haul.

I say recent – it was maybe over a month ago now. Time has flown by so fast now I’m back at uni, and even though I haven’t been finding much time for blogging recently, I have been finding the time to focus on me and my mental health. Whether that’s making sure to put the time aside for a bath every week, spending time with my mum, or cuddling up in front of the TV watching Bake Off. All of these things have one key thing in common – candles. Are you even relaxed if you aren’t burning a candle?

Warm, sweet and spicy scents are my favourite, so when autumn and winter come around I get very excited for candles. It doesn’t feel the same burning certain scents in spring when it’s warm and sunny outside. Sometimes, certain scents need a certain cold, drab atmosphere! Here are some I picked up last month in preparation for the cold weather.

Adagio Autumn Teas Review

Adagio Autumn Teas Review

Welcome back, lovelies! I’m so excited for today’s post, and I’ve been waiting for weeks to bring this to you. If I could’ve wrote about it straight away, I would have, but I wanted to try all the teas so I could give you a detailed review. I’m a huge tea lover, and was so excited when the lovely people at Adagio Teas approached me to try out their autumn and winter tea ranges. I was truly spoiled by them, and got some other goodies and accessories in the package, too! In this post, I will be talking you through the Adagio autumn teas, and my favourites.

Stay tuned for their Christmas teas range, as well – there are some mouthwatering flavours for the festive season!

Reusable Shopping Bag Collection & The Selfie Bag

Reusable Shopping Bag Collection & The Selfie Bag

Recently, I’ve become more environmentally conscious. I’ve been up-ing my recycling game, using reusable bottles and less plastics, and working up a reusable shopping bag collection. I’m not perfect, and I still mess up and buy myself plastic bottles of coke, sometimes. There’s a lot that I still don’t know about how I can help further, and I plan to keep expanding my knowledge on this.

While I do that, I’d love to show you my cute reusable bags that I take shopping with me wherever I go! My collection also features The Selfie Bag from Cotton Bag Co. It’s an adorable, canvas bag that comes in two different styles – not only is it great for shopping, but as the name suggests, it’s great to help you get the perfect selfie!
