Hey guys, how are you?
Don’t know about you but I’m obsessed with cosy slippers and pyjama’s? So when I was given the opportunity to review Vera Cosy slippers I was more than excited.

Vera Cosy was born out of the idea to create a cozy home experience with the comfiest slippers in the market. They are on a mission to make home footwear look and feel like more than “just a pair of slippers”. Vera Cosy are not only warm and comfy, but protect your feet against hard floors and cement during occasional outside wear.

Their slippers help relax your feet and offer maximum comfort without sacrificing quality. The slippers are made of memory foam and cotton fabric, super high quality materials.
I am wearing the Cotton Knit Ballerina Slipper With Stretchable Heel which retail for £21.99.

Honestly, I have had the most satisfying slipper wearing experience begins here. If you want to purchase some slippers to check the range out here. You can use code 10VCNY for extra 10% off.

Happy new year to you all. Yes, it’s nearly the end of January and hasn’t this month flown by! I really hope you’re all doing well and sticking to those new years resolutions. I am kicking off this new year at a detox and wellness retreat, now doesn’t that sound great. One of my new year resolutions was to look after my total health a bit more.

I was lucky enough to have a week stay the UK’s First Purpose Built Detox & Wellness Retreat called ‘The Glass House’. The retreat is in Essex, only an hour from central London, has been designed from scratch and built by industry experts from the ground up. It’s a visionary retreat, with an all-inclusive approach to detoxing and wellness.

The retreat offers a unique program of wellness, fitness and nutrition led by their team of expert therapists, instructors and coaches. Now this may sound scary, but I’m telling you it’s just amazing.  

The retreat is easily accessible, with free secure parking (I drove) or a 5 min taxi from the nearest station to go into London.

A little bit about the retreat

Now I was scared I’d be forced into activities I didn’t want to do, as a retreat seemed quite daunting. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I was treated as an individual, they did not preach or bark orders at me. The Glass House is what you make it.

If I felt like a personal training session rather than a group class, that was fine. And if I felt like staying in the pool, that was also no problem. I just had to ask the lovely staff during my stay.  They do recommend their set programmes, so you can achieve the best results for yourself. But, it’s up to you which is what is nice. I had lots of free time for my pre booked spa treatments as they alternate different schedules between days.

Before breakfast, they arranged an hour-long countryside walk, and we all know there’s no better way to fire up your metabolism for the day. You’ll feel as brilliant as I did!

Personally I did a little bit of both- one intense day full of fitness classes and one day of relaxation – long sleep, yoga class, pool, sauna sessions, a massage and a facial and I loved it. Also every evening after dinner they organise the wellness talks. I found them so interesting, useful and it was also a great way to connect with others attending the retreat.

You can find out about a typical day here.

I stayed with my mum, I thought she deserved a little break away. The room we stayed at was very comfortable, spacious and cosy. We had two super cosy double beds, I slept safe and sound. The en-suite bathroom was really pretty too! I loved going back to this room after all day of treatments. They also had a great selection of herbal teas in the room and fresh filtered water delivered to our rooms numerous times a day.

I couldn’t recommend the food more, all meals hand cooked by on site chef. The food at the retreat was absolutely delicious and all plant- based. Everything was natural and clean. I chose the Equilibrium Diet which is suitable if you want to detox, but weight loss isn’t a priority, as I didn’t want to lose weight. I really enjoyed all the meals, especially the granola for breakfast! They also offer and Weight loss Diet and Pure Juicing Diet. You can read more here.

The Glass House facilities included the heated leisure pool, Himalayan salt block sauna, yoga & Pilates at their fitness studio, gym, cryo chamber and many spa treatment rooms. There is also a plushy lounge with TV if you want to relax in comfort. They recommend to have a break away from your phones, however if you want to stay connected there is free high speed Wi-Fi available.

Me and my mum both tried the same treatments, the Glasshouse Signature Treatment and 1000 flower wrap. My gosh, it was one of the best experiences in my life, so relaxing and indulgent. They use all Elemis products which you can also purchase, they smell great! You can check out all the spa treatments they offer here.

My experiences after the retreat…

After the retreat I felt so restored and relaxed. My skin is glowing and I don’t feel the need for makeup. I am going to continue to stick to this healthy lifestyle, it’s just so important to look after both your body and mind. I feel blessed to be able to have this little detox week and I would more than recommend you to do the same. Whether you come for a spa day, a weekend or a whole week like I did, if you want relaxation and learn how you could improve your lifestyle, Glasshouse is the place for you. You can have a look at all packages and book your stay here.

Hope to see you there soon, happy detoxing.

So it’s nearly Christmas, are you all ready? Christmas outfits and presents all bought? If not then I’m sure you have some last minute purchases to make. But as I’m sure you have plenty of things you need to purchase this month, money may be in short supply.

So here comes in Klarna. I’m sure the name rings a bell, but if it doesn’t let me explain… Klarna allows you to shop online at Asos, Miss Selfridge, H&M, Topshop, and hundreds of other online stores, to “try before you buy”. Shoppers accepted (18 years or older and subject to financial circumstances) for Klarna’s pay later service have 14 or 30 days (dependent on the retailer) to pay for their online order. You can also have the option to Pay later in 3 will allow you to spread the cost of your purchase over 3 equal payments. The payment for each instalment will automatically be collected from the debit or credit card you entered at checkout. Your first instalment will be collected when your order is confirmed by the merchant and instalments 2 and 3 are scheduled 30 and 60 days later, respectively.
This means you could get a pile of clothes delivered, try them on and return any you don’t like, then only pay for what you keep. For cash-strapped people like myself, this removes one of the biggest obstacles to online shopping, waiting for returns to be put back in your bank account. There is no interest, fees or late charges, even better!

So what’s stopping you, let’s do some online shopping and buy those last minute festive outfits for Christmas and New Years eve. In this post I have shared some of my favourite festive pieces from clothing retailers paying using Klarna. The brands shared are Topshop, H&M, ParisianFemme Luxe Finery, I Saw It First, and Asos.

  Dress - Boots
 Dress - Shoes

Hope you enjoy seeing some of my festive styles, and pay later using Klarna yourself!
