Becksondergaard x Jibe Longboards + Your Chance to #WIN!

Couples who skate together, stay together. Or something like that. Today's post features the new limited edition Becksondergaard longboard! These boards were created in collaboration with Jibe Longboards and they're great for carving but downhill and on flat ground. Sam & I took them for a spin at the weekend and we can confirm they are AWESOME.

I'm sure you'll agree, Sam looks like an absolute natural and is in love with his board! I might need a bit more practice. The boards are unisex but Sam's wheels are ever so slightly bigger, which is probably why he found it so easy. A-hem.

  1. Head to the Becksondergaard website and choose your favourite piece (whatever takes your fancy).

Flamingo Candles Review - The Melt Crowd July!

Oh Flamingo Candles, this month you've really nailed it! July's The Melt Crowd box is even better than June's. For £10 you receive 8 highly scented melts worth £18.95 and if you haven't heard of this subscription service before, you get a free burner with your first box and you can cancel at any time.

Last month's scents were delicious but this month's are the best yet! If you're like me, you tend to change your candles to suit your mood. These adorable melts are only £2 when purchased individually, so it's really easy to switch them out if you want something a little different. Each one burns for almost 30 hours so they're definitely worth it!

July's box includes:
  • Raspberry and Salted Caramel (shown in the burner)
  • Lemon Curd
  • Pink Lemonade
  • Cucumber & Melon
  • Mojito
  • Green Tomato Leaf
  • Oriental Lotus and Rose Otto
  • Island Breeze

My favourite 3 scents are Lemon Curd (aka Sherbert Lemons), Pink Lemonade and Green Tomato Leaf! I can't really explain how Green Tomato Leaf smells but it is addictive. It's also one of The Melt Crowd exclusives along with Island Breeze.

This box is fantastic value for money. You can even send The Melt Crowd boxes as gifts which I think is a really clever idea. Each one also comes with an exclusive 20% off discount code to use on the site! Huzzah. 

Both Jade & Love Flamingo Candles and we're so impressed by this new idea. It sounds sad but I'm already thinking about the Christmas box! You know it will be good.

Are you a member of The Melt Crowd? Which scented melt would you most like to try?

National Friendship Day With Lands End!

Did you know that 30th July 2015 is National Friendship Day? Well it is, and to celebrate Lands' End is helping blogging best friends like Tara and I to dress for the occasion! They rather sweetly asked me to choose something pretty for my glam girlfriend Tbug to style up, and I was kind of spoilt for choice, but I eventually plumped for this beautiful Pattern Linen Sundress (£90)!

Listed as 'a grown up sundress', I knew this was the one as soon as I spied it. Everyone who knows T knows that she loves a good summer frock, and this one is cool and classy, just like Tbone. I can totally see Tara rocking this midnight indigo paisley pattern with cute black or white block heels and signature fedora, maybe with one of her many little black leather jackets on a cool day (T is never knowingly beaten by clouds!) and a frosting of Mi Moneda! 

I also think my bud, who likes things just so, will appreciate the small but important touches to this design. First off, it's fully lined so there's no need to get one of her many slips out for underneath (who needs layers under a sundress?!). Secondly, it has adorable little side pockets, and we both agree that more dresses and skirts should do pockets. Finally, it has secret lingerie loops to keep bra straps aligned, and knowing how much pride T puts into her outfits I know this feature will put a smile on that little face!

So what do you think? Can you see Tara in this dress? I hope she loves it because Lands' End will be sending it to her shortly on her blogging best friend's behalf, so SHHH!! don't tell her, it's a surprise! ;)

#WIN a Rather Handy Barbour Picnic Rug! #BarbourPicnicRug

Barbour is so hot right now! You've probably noticed their latest spring summer 2015 collection popping up on several top fashion blogs over the past month. The brand is usually associated with the famous quilted Barbour jacket but there is SO much more them than that.

They've just introduced a limited edition Barbour picnic blanket, or 'picnic rug' as they're so affectionately calling it. The thing is, it's not just any picnic blanket, it's an epic, multi-purpose, must-have summer item! I've been sent one to feature and oh my gosh, it's even better in person.

Barbour Limited Picnic Rug

So picture this, you're heading out for a romantic summer picnic when it starts raining... You're both jacketless because it was boiling when you left the house! Well fear not, because this beautiful rather handy picnic rug is waxed on one side and converts into a hooded poncho - perfect for the unpredictable British weather! It can also be used as a standard blanket (with a pillow), a dog towel and the handy bag it comes in doubles as a wine cooler for storing your Prosecco in.

This picnic rug is ideal for the festival season, sadly mine arrived a few hours after I left for Glastonbury but I'll be taking it out for a picnic soon! You can see how it can be re-worked by watching this hella short (but pretty darn hilarious) video here: 

So how can you get your paws on one? Sadly it's not for sale as it's so limited (*SIGH*), only 250 have been made BUT Barbour are giving away 66 (globally) over social media! Waaah.

Entering couldn't be more simple. Click through to the video to read the full details in the description but in a nutshell, you just need to share how you're going to make the most of the summer using the hashtag #BarbourPicnicRug - Via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram! Be quick though as entries close on Saturday 5th July.

Will you be entering? Let me know if you do and also let me know if you'd be interested in seeing me style this beaut! 

T - Melting in the heat!
