After my blogging the other week about how I never think to buy any flowers for indoors, and after some of you very cleverly suggested I add them to the weekly shop, I treated myself to a little bunch of pink carnations. I do love the look and smell of fresh flowers at home, but flowers can be pretty expensive, and there is zero chance of getting flowers from the BF. I received a bunch from him once, very early on when we got together, and not a single stem since!
Whats the best way to hint ladies? Any tips for getting flowers without asking!?
Anyway, for £1.50 I went with the carnations and I must say it is lovely walking home clutching a little bunch of flowers, something to pretty up my room.
I popped them in my little blue jug and onto my bedside table. They have made me ridiculously happy this week, and I would say a worthwhile investment, and they have lasted well too. I once read a tip about something you put in the water that helps the flowers last....can't for the life of me think of what it was though, something odd like lemonade or vinegar. Does anyone know?
So that was my weekly treat to myself. I was also given the treat of reviewing some teatowels from www.all-tea-towels.co.uk who stock a huge range of them, in a massive aray of styles. Personally I was drawn to the retro style ones rather than the modern ones, but there is something for everyone!
Because of my love of tea I chose this 'Tea Revives You' red and white one, which I just love. Its really bold and the saying is so nostalgic. The other one I chose was a Tunnock's Teacake wrapper print, which I chose, surprisingly enough because I also love these! I must just say thank you to Al, who runs the business for letting me chose these lovely teatowels.
Tea and a Teacake!
So the review, well I gave them a wash after taking these photos as I think they dry better once washed, and they have come out absolutely fine, no colour running or fading, and I have used them in the kitchen for drying up and they are doing a great job!
What treats have you had this week?
