Stationery | Just because with Paperless Post

Keeping in touch with friends is really important to me, and sometimes there is nothing better than sending a surprise note in the post or a photo in a text of a happy memory.

When Paperless post got in touch with me to tell me about their website, I was blown away by the options. I hadn't heard of the brand before and I couldn't believe the designer cards and invites that you can send to friends by email.

At first I was thinking, do my friends really want to receive invites and cards by email? I am a very digital person but when it comes to something like this, normally I would want to sign the card myself to give it that personal touch.


To get started I needed to sign up to the website and I was awarded 25 coins for doing so, which meant I could try out the website and app before purchasing some additional coins. It also meant my friends could reply with a card using their free coins too.

Over the last few weeks it's amazing how many opportunities I have had to send cards or invites where normally I would have just done it in a text or posted a card purchased locally.  

 

From first browse I was in love with the designer options from Charlotte Olympia, Oscar de la Renta, Kate Spade, Liberty and Vera Wang to name a few. 

I absolutely love Kate Spade cards and stationery!



After browsing the website, there is just so many options!! I wanted to send my friend Suzanne an invite to come for a sleepover. 

It was so much fun, choosing a card there was only one word to type in to see what was available for 'cocktails' I wasn't disappointed with 285 options! 

This green one was instantly my favourite from Charlotte Olympia. I selected the card and started to personalise, the text, the fonts and layout. I was then able to select a matching envelope and this one was perfect with the pink interior and leopard tail.

It cost 2 coins for the personalised invite and 2 additional coins for the envelope. To send this by post it would have been from £5.05! My friend was then able rsvp and send me a comment via the email notification I sent. 


The next day brought some lovely news which then resulted in me needing to send my friend Kayleigh an engagement card! she was on her holidays and got engaged!!! I was able to send her a card instantly congratulating her and her man about their amazing news! I sent this card with matching lipstick kiss envelope for free!

Many cards are available for free within the website. I didn't choose this one based on cost, it was just exactly what I needed. 


Kate Spade is known for her slogans and this 'Eat Cake For Breakfast' birthday card was perfect for my friend Alex. There were 2 colour options, white and gold or black and pink. 

This card cost 2 coins plus an additional 2 coins for the beautiful stripe envelope. This wasn't available to print in this gold combination but in Pink it would have been £4.04. 


I ended up sending alot more cards mainly just because I could, but I got really into it and it was so easy to do via the app on my iPhone and iPad. It was also so nice to receive some spontaneous post!

If you fancy trying out paperless post, either visit the website or download the app and set up an account using your email address or Facebook. By signing up you instantly get 25 coins then if you want to then continue using the service you can top up for a minimum of £5 which would give you an additional 20 coins.

I am using the app to organise the office Christmas party and I can't wait to wish everyone a Happy 2018 with Kate Spade of course or there is 398 other options!

Fashion | JORD Watch and Giveaway!


It's end of my first summer with my beautiful mini convertible and what a way to celebrate with a fashion post in partnership with JORD Watches. 

JORD produces hand crafted time pieces made of wood for both men and women. They are made from different types of wood including Maple, Zebrawood, Koa and sandalwood.



Out of all of the watches available on the website, there was only one for me, 'Frankie 35' in dark sandalwood with mint face - View My Watch!

I ordered my watch directly from the website which included free postage (import charge of £14.95 in UK) but it arrived beautifully packaged within 2 weeks by UPS fully tracked. 

At time of ordering I did need to supply the size of my wrist using a paper toolkit they provided via email. It did however still arrive a little large so I got my dad to remove 2 further links for it to fit my wrist perfectly.


Isn't the colour just so beautiful in the sunshine? I love a pop of colour and this watch is not like any other I have in my collection.

The concept of a wooden watch is a total novelty and not the material I expected a designer watch to be made of. The wood made the watch light and easy to wear, compared to my Michael Kors which is quite heavy for everyday wear. 






Do you want the chance to own your own JORD wood watch? 

I am excited to share that the brand are running a Giveaway where you could receive $100 discount off your chosen watch. The competition is exclusive to my blog and is open until September 24th 2017 11.59pm all you have to do to enter is to provide your email address! Plus if you are not the chosen winner of the draw, everyone who enters will get $25 discount.


Wishing you lots of luck!

Durham | Brunch at Flat White Kitchen


I would say I am a regular at Flat White Kitchen in Durham, but not so regular that they know my name or they save me a spot at my favourite table by the succulents (goals!!!) but if am heading into city it's the only place on my list to grab a coffee if i have time to sit in. 

Coffee is always served to perfection and the food is exceptional!

I love introducing friends who are from out of town to FW, they are always impressed with the menu, the presentation and of course the relaxed cool atmosphere.


French Toast with Greek Yoghurt, Caramelised peaches and a sprinkle of flaked almonds


Scrambled egg on sour dough with added bacon and a sprinkle of chives.


My friend opted for the stack of pancakes with maple syrup and bacon, he keeps telling me how amazing these were, personally I would have opted for the blueberry version which look divine!

You can't book or reserve table at FW, so you do have to queue at peak times but not usually for too long and I would rather wait than go somewhere else. 

Amazing news is that the brunch menu served until 4pm you can really just take your time to roll out of bed. If you turn up between 12 - 4 you can have the pick of both brunch and lunch menus!

Did I mention... they also do an amazing choice of cakes, which you try to decide on while waiting for your table. 



 


Looking at all this food is making me hungry, and my breakfast this morning looked nothing like this, but I look forward to my next visit!

If you haven't been, make sure you do!  But turn up hungry, just to make it worth while.
