Blogmas 2019, Days 16-20: The Last Minute Christmas Panic has Started!

Oops, that should be 20 not 21!

I guess most people do this, but I started this years Christmas preparations feeling very organised. I knew what I was getting people, I even started ordering things in September, but somehow I was still Christmas shopping today! How does this always happen? Next year I’m starting in June!

Review: Twinings Cold Infuse Tea Bags

With the hotter weather we’ve been getting in summers I wanted to try to make sure I drink enough liquids, water by itself can get a bit boring and I’m trying to cut down on sugar when I’m home so was on the lookout for a low sugar way to get some variation in my drinks. I’ve seen these cold brew style teabags in magazines and really wanted to try them so when I saw the Twining’s Cold Infuse tea bags in Holland and Barrett for buy one get one half price I had to give them a go. They’re available in a lot of stores in the UK so you’ll probably find them in your local supermarket for around £3.80 per tub, though they are on sale at half price in Holland and Barrett at the moment.

I like fruit teas hot and often make them and let them go cold but there are some flavours in this range that you don’t see as a hot tea.

Recent Purchases: Joe Browns

I recently made an order on the Joe Browns website and I would have done this post sooner but one of the items was faulty so I had to get a replacement. The good news is the returns were quick and easy and, even though it was only a small fault, they didn’t question it and I had the replacement back here within a week despite using My Hermes which often takes that long one way.

I don’t know if you guys find this but there are a few stores that I know if I order them online they are almost guaranteed to fit me well, the shape just suits my body and I know the sizes because of how many things I’ve bought in the past. Joe Brown’s is one of those companies for me. I did end up getting more than I originally intended but some of these things have been on my want list, or something like them, for the past two years so, although it seems like a lot to spend in one go, I am actually pretty much set for clothes this summer. I need a few new vest tops and some T-shirts with print or pattern on them but I’ll just go to Primark for the few things I need.
