Turtle Bay | Round 2





Turtle Bay opened in Norwich a few years ago and I was lucky enough to be invited to the preview dinner. Since then, i've enjoyed many 'happy hours' at Turtle Bay and most recently I was invited back to try out their new menu!

Rocky Road has to be one of the most delicious and easiest sweet treats you can make and the fact that you can literally add any ingredients you want, makes it a winner in my book! I came up with this Hershey's Cookies 'N' Creme Pretzel Rocky Road recipe after receiving this months Taffy Mail* subscription box.

Luxury Valentines Bouquet | Prestige Flowers









Valentine's Day arrived early at The Life of Pye HQ this year with this stunning Luxury Rose Bouquet* from Prestige Flowers


Prestige Flowers is an online flower delivery service based in the UK and they kindly sent me one of their luxury Valentine's bouquets to review. I was so impressed with the quality of the flowers and how quickly the flowers were delivered. Not to mention the gorgeous box they were delivered in! Prestige Flowers offers next day delivery, perfect for people who leave present buying to the last minute.. *me*. I also received the tastiest box of chocolates boasting flavours such as Mango, Cocoa Crunch and Peach and Passionfruit, along the softest teddy bear, which was a lovely, unexpected surprise. 

I must admit the choccies didn't last long though! 

The bouquet I received was a mixture of 12 Rhodes Roses, Copper Ruscus and a selection of foliage. The bouquet was delivered with a really useful care guide and featured some top tips for looking after the roses. One of the tips was to place newly cut stems into an inch of boiling water for 30 seconds to revive any drooping rose heads, which is great to know! Although, I haven't had to do this yet as a week after receiving the bouquet the roses are still looking perfect and have no signs of drooping. 

I was so impressed with how the flowers were delivered in a secure box and how fresh they were when they arrived. I also liked that they were already beautifully arranged with the added foliage, so all I had to do was cut the stems and place them into a vase! Ordering a bouquet online is very simple, and you can even add extras like vases, chocolates and balloons, although all Valentine's Day bouquets come with free chocolates anyway!

If you really want to spoil someone this Valentine's Day then have a look at the Grand Gesture Hat Box, a truly stunning arrangement of 50 Naomi Red Roses! 

Prestige Flowers offers next day delivery if ordered by 9pm and have a great range of gifts for any budget. You can also purchase hampers and other fab gifts on their site too! Also, if you're worried about ordering flowers online...don't be! Prestige Flowers offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if for whatever reason you're not satisfied with your order they'll do their upmost best to sort out the issue and refund if necessary.


So whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day, Galentine's Day, or just want to give your significant other a lovely bouquet, i'd definitely recommend checking out Prestige Flowers!

Finally, I'd like to thank Prestige Flowers for sending me this truly stunning bouquet.

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day this year?

How To Spoil Dad This Father's Day






Father's Day is fast approaching and if you're anything like me, you've left it until the last minute to find the perfect present for your dear old Dad. Well, fear not, because i've teamed up with Intu Chapelfield* to bring you some of the best Father's Day presents available! I had a lovely afternoon pottering around the shops in Intu Chapelfield and found some great gifts that I know my dad will love! Intu Chapelfield is home to some of the best shops in the City and it's always my first port of call when present buying. 

I started off my search in House of Fraser and headed straight for the beauty department. I know my Dad likes to take care of his skin, however he would never go into a shop and treat himself to a luxury product like this lovely shave cream from Kiehl's, so I thought i'd get it for him instead! I think thats what a Father's Day present should be... something they would never buy themselves, a real treat- so you can truly show them how thankful you are for all that they do! I love Kiehl's products and have tied a lot of their skincare products myself and to make things even easier, the lovely people at Kiehl's have put together some great Father's Day gift boxes suitable for any budget. They also have some lovely minis of some of their best selling men's products, so you can create a little gift pack yourself too! I was deliberating between the shave cream and moisturiser, so the lovely sales assistant gave me a sample of the moisturiser to gift to my Dad as well. 



You can never go wrong with a great outfit either, and House of Fraser have some great brands to choose from, such as Hugo Boss, Paul Smith, Lacoste, Ted Baker and Jack & Jones. There were some great deals in the men's section and I managed to pick up this grey crew neck T-Shirt  from Jack & Jones in the sale for only £7.00, and you can never go wrong with a basic Tee! I decided to pair it with these navy shorts, also from Jack & Jones, and I love the finished result! Perfect for the Summer.   


Talking of Summer.. BBQ season is well underway and my Dad is definitely king of the BBQ! So these BBQ tools from Tiger were a great little extra and priced at only £2 each they were so reasonable! Tiger had some other great Father's Day gifts (see below) too. I really loved the ginormous mug (made me chuckle) so if you're after a novelty gift then definitely head to Tiger, which is located on the lower ground floor of Intu Chapelfield (near to Krispy Kreme... mmm doughnuts). 



I'd already purchased my Dad a Father's Day card, but I loved having a look around Clinton's to see what they had to offer. They had a huge range of cards, and what's more is they had a great range of Father's Day cards for Stepdads, Grandads, Dads first Father's Day cards and pretty much any card you could think of.

If clothes aren't your Dad's thing, then head to Men Kind and pick up some great gifts and gadgets like a Beer Making Kit or even a Drone, or if you really want to push the boat out the Apple store has some amazing tech gifts, perfect for any Father figure! Or, why not make your own gift!? Boots offer a photo printing service and can print photos to collect the same day and you can pick up a gorgeous frame from the House of Fraser home department too! 

Finally, if you want to take the stress out of choosing a gift another great idea would be an Intu Chapelfield giftcard, which can be used at any store in the shopping mall!


I really loved choosing these items for my Dad and i'm sure he'll love opening them on Sunday! I'm very grateful for intu Chapelfield for allowing me to take part in their Father's Day campaign this year and I'm sure you'll agree that they are the best place to go for last minute gift ideas, as there are so many amazing brands and shops all under one roof!

I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day, however you might be celebrating it! What do you think of my Father's Day Picks?
