BLOOMING WONDERFUL FROM BLOSSOMING GIFTS

Last week I was approached by the lovely people over at Blossoming Gifts and asked if I would review one of their home delivered bouquets, and of course I said yes! 
There is nothing I love more than a fresh bouquet of flowers in my home and my absolute favourites are white lilies.



Blossoming Gifts have an amazing range of bouquets across their easy to use website and I absolutely loved the simplistic look of the white roses & lilies bouquet (£28), which you can find right here.
My bouquet arrived the very next day in a huge box, they were really well packaged and unlike some other home delivery bouquets I have received, there were no damages to the flowers thanks to the really well designed packaging.
I wasn't sure on what size to expect, but I would say these are a medium bouquet and a really even, well picked selection. The bouquet came with the roses fully open, but the white lilies weren't, it took a couple of days to get them going, but once they were in full bloom, they were incredibly fragrant and absolutely stunning. 
Blossoming gifts promise 7 days freshness, and I could definitely agree with that on the lilies, but the roses were fully bloomed from the moment the bouquet arrived so have subsequently wilted slightly
premature to 7 days, nevertheless, they are still beautiful.


If you're looking for an affordable, last minute present, Blossoming Gifts are just what you are looking for, with a huge selection of bouquets, and if you need something a little extra there are wines, personalised gifts, balloons, hampers and much more. Blossoming Gifts deliver 7 days a week and you can get next day delivery until 6:30pm. 
As a thank you for reading, Blossoming Gifts are offering all of my readers a 33% discount with the code BGIFTS33 so you guys can get your hands on some of these beautiful bouquets for a fraction of the price.

MY APRIL LIFE UPDATES & FAVOURITES

Happy May you bunch of babes, welcome back to my blog, I had my birthday on May 1st and it was an amazing bank holiday weekend just spending some much needed quality time with my little humans, my fiance and the rest of our family. I have eaten too much good food, and drank too many good cocktails in the last month and although I worked out for almost every other day in April, I have still managed to maintain a double chin thanks to Halloumi and McDonalds Monopoly.
In April Hudson turned 5 months and we have started giving him his first tastes of food, and of course he absolutely loves it but it just makes me so anxious that he is growing up so fast, as I have made no secret, Hudson is going to be our last child, we are really complete as a family of four, so it does make it a little harder every time he is too big for something or taking on these incredible milestones.
Talking of milestones, in April we found out which school Harper is going to in September and we feel incredibly lucky and pleased that we got our first choice school. A few of her closest friends at preschool will be joining her there too, so we're really excited for the next step in her life. Even if it makes me shed a tear when I think about being away from her and letting go of the reigns a little bit for her to start a chapter of her life without me holding her hand, I know she will thrive at school and love every second of it. 
This month we also booked our family staycation for mid June and we're really excited for it, we have been going to the same place for a few years whilst I have been pregnant and the kids have been so little, a holiday in the sun just hasn't been for us. The place we go to is just so amazing for Harper, it's all about her and she gets to go swimming every morning which she adores and there's always so much to do for her age group. May is probably going to be a boring month of saving and knuckling down, so there won't be essays to read, there may not even be a may faves, so I hope you enjoy my April faves which, as always, are a complete random mixture of things I have been loving this month.
