Gousto box delivery & first meal cooked ๐Ÿคค (60% off discount link included)

Hey guys,

Are you really sick of eating the same meals week in week out but like most of us you struggle for time to create something more adventurous?.

Look no further, Gousto box is the answer. I have previously posted on my blog about the concept of these types of delivery boxes so I will go over it briefly.

Gousto is a super flexible food box delivery service that sends you everything you need to make gorgeous meals for you and your family, I believe you can order meals for up to 4 people. You can cancel and skip weeks as often as you feel suits your budget and lifestyle. What I would say is make sure you pick your recipes in good time otherwise I believe they send you random things from that weeks selection which would be a disaster if there are some things you really don’t like.

This first box cost me ยฃ17.50 for 4 meals (you can choose less) thanks to a 50% discount I found by browsing online, but if you follow this link —->> Gousto box referral link this will give you 60% off your first box and 30% off any other boxes ordered in your first month, how good is that !!??.

I chose free delivery which can be any time between 8am and 7pm on your chosen delivery day but you can also select time slots that are more suited to you at a small cost. I have Tuesdays of work so I knew this wouldn’t be an issue. You can also select a safe place for your box to be left if you are unavailable and the packaging contains ice blocks and insulation which will keep all of your food fresh for you.

I was sooo excited for my first delivery to arrive today and I did go to the cinema at one point but I knew it would be left in a safe place. Later in the day I was unfortunately sent an email telling me that my box was delayed and it would be with me between 6pm and 10pm which of course couldn’t be helped and I was glad they had let me know however I hadn’t actually got any food in the house as I knew I would be having a meal out of this box tonight so I kind of just sat there in hope that it would arrive closer to the 6pm mark. 6.30pm arrived and the doorbell went, I could have kissed the delivery driver ( I didn’t ).

I couldn’t wait to dig into the box and get all my goodies out but first I wanted to check out the recipe cards for the meals I had chosen, you also get an envelope full of coupons for other companies and a little welcome book which is a nice extra.

I love how these little recipe cards come hole punched ready for you to put into a binder which I believe you get as a free gift if you continue to use their service. I did notice that the lamb burger recipe card is a fair bit smaller than the others which is a bit strange. Each of these cards have a list of the ingredients which you need to get out for this meal and on the reverse it has a step by step guide on how to make your meal which is really easy to follow.

Then came the exciting bit, actually looking in the box and getting all of my yummy ingredients out.

This is absolutely everything you need to make the four meals with the addition of possibly some salt, pepper and olive oil in some of the recipes but most people have these things in their cupboard already.

I absolutely love that included in my delivery was a free gift which was a Gousto wooden spoon, such a great added touch to get people into the brand. I actually used this to stir the pickled cucumber on my first meal and found it really easy to use because of its thick handle, I’ve never been so excited to use a wooden spoon ๐Ÿ™Š.

Once I’d sorted out all of my ingredients I left out everything I needed for my first meal and stored everything else away.

For our first meal I decided to go for the lamb burger with minty mayo and chips, my main reason for going for this first was the ciabatta rolls, I knew it would be best to use them when they were fresh.

The meal took me around 40 mins to make. The recipe was really easy to follow especially with everything being measured out and ready to use.

If I do say so myself this meal turned out incredible and tasted even better.

The total calories for this meal was 734 kcal which is quite high but is good as a fake away sort of cheat meal as it’s still a lot better than ordering from a take away or fast food restaurant and far more fun.

I adored the minty mayo, it is very simple to make and very easy to replicate as is the whole meal but it is far better having everything already there to prevent having to pre prep anything.

Overall after just this one meal I am already very impressed with Gousto. Okay so the first delivery issues weren’t ideal but it still arrived in good time for me to have our first meal for dinner so I can’t complain and things happen.

I have already ordered my second box for 2 weeks time, I am skipping next week as it’s my Birthday week and we are going out a fair bit and won’t make the most of the meals.

Follow my referral link Gousto Referral link for 60% off your first box order and 30% off any boxes ordered within the first month. I hope you enjoy making and eating these meals just as much as I have this first one. Keep your eyes peeled on my Instagram page where I will post pictures of all four meals and possibly back on here once I have tried everything.

Happy cooking.

Bonn Bella. The perfect gift!๐Ÿ’•

Hey everyone,

Me again ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ.

Bonn Bella Co are a Bedfordshire based natural handmade soy wax melt & candle company that create the most gorgeous fragrances.

They very kindly sent across this gorgeous gift box full of their Superscent wax melt scents to try.

How gorgeous is this ?? And that packaging is so stunning.

These would really make the most gorgeous gifts especially for wax melt newbies who are a bit unsure on what scent they would like to buy more of or someone that wants to try a bit of everything. They have recently started doing candles in most of their scents as well so it’s a good way to try them before committing to buying a whole candle.

I have only tried a few of the scents yet but I have to say that these little wax melts pack such a punch and easily fill a room. I have a little Buddha burner that is such a perfect size for melting these.

I haven’t taken pictures of everything that I’ve burned unfortunately but so far I am absolutely loving cupcake, I am such a bakery scent fan and this one is perfect for me. Another favourite is snow fairy, this was always going to be a winner with me as I adore the lush products. I have used the lavender scent at night time to help me sleep as I find this is very relaxing and helps me to drift off ( when I’ve blown out my candle that is ๐Ÿ˜).

Head over to Bonn Bella’s Instagram Page now and give them a follow, they have all of their scents listed on there and some fantastic photographs of their products.

To buy directly then head on over to their Website where they currently have a sale across their entire SuperScent wax melt range!.

Thanks for reading guys, I hope you enjoy their products as much as I have.

The proper candle haus ๐Ÿ’• wax melt review.

Good morning lovelies,

I hope your all having a great weekend, I’ve got a fantastic little waxmelt & Candle Company to tell you all about this morning.

The proper candle haus are based in the heart of teeside, they specialise in making handmade home fragrance in the form of wax melts, candles, diffusers, and room sprays.

They very kindly send out a selection of some of their wax melt goodies & a room spray for me to try which came to me in the form of snap bars but are soon being changed to wax pots instead.

The scents I received were :

1 large Amalfi Coast.

1 medium white Christmas.

1 medium blackcurrant & aragawood.

1 hibiscus & spa breeze room spray.

It was actually snowing a little on the day that my delivery arrived so I decided to put the white Christmas wax melt into my burner first.

This scent has actually turned out my be my favourite from the three, it’s such a gorgeous sophisticated/ stylish scent and is something I would definitely burn when I have friends and family visiting to give my house a gorgeous fragrance.

The second wax melt I decided to try was the blackcurrant and agarwood.

I adore the colour of this wax melt in its gorgeous vibrant pink / red form. Again this scent is very sophisticated and stylish with the blackcurrant fruity delight really shining though.

The scent I have tried most recently is Amalfi Coast.

This scent feels very warm, cosy and is perfect to burn on a sunny but chilly relaxing Sunday morning.

The only product I am yet to try is the room spray but if these wax melts are anything to go by I know I’m going to absolutely love it.

If you want to order any of these goodies directly then head straight over to their Etsy Page or if you’d like to browse their products more and find out what great things are coming next then head over to their Instagram and give them a follow.

I’ve loved trying these products and it’s always nice to try some completely new fragrances and these three are all gorgeous and modern. They all have a really good throw which easily filled a room especially the large snap bar.

I just want to thank the proper candle haus for working with me and sending over some of their gorgeous products for me to try.

Thanks for reading

Iโ€™ve just signed up to Gousto food box. Very excited for the first box of fresh ingredients to arrive ๐Ÿ˜ I love cooking. (Discount link in post for 60% off your first box UK ONLY)

Hey guys,

For those of you that only came here for one reason

—–> 60% off your first box <——-

To everyone else Happy Sunday, I hope you are all having a lovely day.

I didn’t get much sleep last night due to both me and my husband having colds and keeping each other awake with coughing so I’m having a chill out day with loads of tv and junk food to make myself feel better ( not great for the January diet I know).

So today I decided that I wanted to sign up for some sort of food ingredients subscription box, I have tried Hello Fresh in the past and absolutely loved it, I have also tried simply cook which is a slightly different concept than what I was looking for.

What these are for those of you that don’t already know are services that send out all of the fresh ingredients for your chosen meals for however many people you select along with recipes which are really convenient and allow you to make gorgeous food in a short amount of time as everything is already measured out and prepared for you. Simply cook is slightly different, it is a lot cheaper and they supply just the sauces, herbs and spices you need for making these meals and you buy the fresh ingredients yourself.

I searched offers online and saw that Gousto were doing 50% off your first box and 30% off any other boxes that are ordered in your first month (my discount code below is even better than this so scroll straight down to the bottom if that’s what you came here for) . I thought this was such a fantastic deal so I popped over to their page to check out their recipes.

My first delivery contains 4 meals, has only cost me ยฃ17.50 and is due on 29th Jan so just over a week. I have Tuesdays off so I can wait in however on their website you can select what you would like them to do with your parcel if you aren’t home but you can also select the day you wish it to arrive so you can pick a day you know you will be home.

All of the packaging comes with cool bags and is very well insulated which means it can be left for a while without any worry of the food spoiling.

I chose the 2 person box and I went for the maximum amount of meals which were four. I did find that if I added any of the Joe wicks recipes into my basket the discount code didn’t work so just bare this in mind and stick to the normal ones.

These are the four meals that I chose and they all sound really yummy, they each take around 30-40 mins to prepare & cook which is perfect for any busy lifestyle.

My husband doesn’t like curry or Indian food so i’m definitely going to invite a lucky friend over for the butter chicken.

Once my box arrives I am going to do a few blog posts on what is actually in the box and I will be posting pictures on My Instagram page so keep your eyes peeled on there.

I am very excited to get cooking these and sharing my experience with you all.

As I mentioned above I have a great offer for you if you follow this Gousto Referral link. This will get you 60% off your first box and then 30% off any other boxes order within your first month. DO NOT add the Joe wicks or fine dining meals to your basket as the code will not work. I found this out the hard way.

——->REFERRAL LINK <——-

Just in case you missed it the first time around.

Enjoy cooking!

First blog post of the new year ( Itโ€™s only the 15th right so itโ€™s still totally acceptable ๐Ÿ˜).

Hey guys,

So sorry I haven’t posted in the longest time, over Christmas and the new year I took a break from reviewing products, blogging and having to keep up with social media constantly. I can assure you though I now have lots of new exciting companies and products lined up to share with you all very soon.

How was Christmas ?. A bit of a disaster if I’m honest, it usually is. I won’t go into why but me and the hubby tried our best to make the most of what we could.

Boxing Day was nice, we invited our best friend round and I made a buffet that would have possibly have fed the whole street and I opened my bottle of Prosecco that was bigger than me. We played games, watched tv and had a laugh so like I say we did make the most of it when we could.

Going back to work between Christmas And new year was very hard this time, I felt really lost and not really sure how to deal with the things that were going on but I powered on through and pushed myself to get excited for new year which is my fave celebration of the year.

New Year’s Eve is always an exciting one for me, whether I’ve had a good year or not I just love the fresh start feeling that comes with bringing in a new year and reminiscing about the good times of the year.

This year me and the hubby decided to do exactly as we had done the previous year and book a hotel at the tram station in Nottingham and celebrate the new year at the Glee Club which is a fantastic comedy club at the water front in Nottingham. After reconnecting with my best friend we decided to invite him to join us this time and we really did have such an amazing time….. until I got very drunk and threw up on the tram back to the hotel ๐Ÿ™ˆ mortified doesn’t even cut that !.

Needless to say that I woke up feeling horrendous the next morning and have since decided that I no longer like hangovers.

New Years resolutions ?. My main one is just to look after myself more, this is both mentally and physically. I’m always running around like a headless chicken and I just want to make more time for me.

I actually never realised how much I liked January until the last couple of years, Christmas has become my least favourite time which is a shame because I used to love the magic of it however I think it’s because I feel like the year is new and there is so much to look forward to. A new year full of possibilities and Mexico is only just over 100 days away.

Thanks for reading lovelies, keep your eyes peeled for some new posts in the not so distant future as I’ve got great things coming up, including some of the most gorgeous silver jewellery ๐Ÿ’•.

Have a great Tuesday.

Taylorโ€™s Wax Melt review ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฆ„ gorgeous Christmas scents. (Discount code included)

Hey lovelies,

I hope your all getting super excited for Christmas, I know I definitely am.

This gorgeous little company called Taylor’s Wax Melts sent across some of their scents for me to try and the best part about it is that two of them were Christmas scents in the cutest of shapes.

If you are stuck for that last minute Christmas present that won’t cost the earth then you definitely need to head over to their website right now Taylorโ€™s Wax Melts Website and check out all of their gorgeous wax melts and scents. Use the code KERRIEJAYNE15 for 15% off your order.

The scents they sent across for me to try were:

Parma Violets bar

Jingle bell hearts

Christmas cookie.

To get into the festive spirit I decided on burning the Christmas cookie wax melts first, they are adorable in their festive form and everyone that knows me, knows just how much I love a bakery scent especially when cinnamon is involved.

I adore how festive these little melts look and they also have such a fantastic throw for smaller wax melts. After taking this picture I did actually throw all of them into my burner and it created such a gorgeous warm Christmas bakery scent. I’m obsessed ๐Ÿ˜.

My next melt I burned had to be the Jingle Bell heart wax melts, after all it is Christmas so why not!?.

I actually poured all of these little hearts into my kitchen burner and left them on the windowsill, again the throw was so strong for such little melts and this scent is such a gorgeous fruity yet spiced scent which really gives you that Christmas vibe.

The final scent and the wax melt that I’m currently burning is the Parma violet bar which is always a favourite of mine and the size of this bar is so chunky, I love it. I put two chunks into my burner and my study smells so gorgeous.

My husband has even just come in and made a comment about the scent in here.

Parma violet is always a winner with me as I adore the sweets and it has quickly become one of my favourite wax melt scents over the last year.

If you want to check out Taylor’s Wax Melt products then you can head over to their Instagram page, give them a follow and check out everything they have to offer.

Have a great day everyone and thanks for reading.

Wax Melts By Dee ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฆ„

Good evening lovelies,

I’m so sorry my posting is rubbish at the moment, I really am trying to get around to doing everything and posting more but with Christmas in the way it’s a struggle however I’m sure many of you understand โ˜บ๏ธ.

Wax Melts by Dee are a handmade soy wax melt company based in the UK, all of their wax melts are cruelty free and vegan friendly and they also use biodegradable glitter in their products which is fantastic.

They very kindly sent across three of their stunning wax melts for me to try at the end of last month and I was so excited when my delivery arrived because they were all really sparkly and smelt great.

The three scents were :

Blonde Bubbles

Black Pomegranate

Orange & Honey

When I opened my delivery my eyes quickly darted towards the word Prosecco on the front of the Blonde Bubbles wax melt so this was always going to be my first choice of melt to burn.

This scent is a gorgeous Prosecco scent married with berries and rose petals and my gosh does it smell delicious. I put this into my living room burner after getting home from our local light switch on and even though the scent isn’t festive as such, with it having that Prosecco scent it definitely gave me that Christmassy feeling. I put half of this wax melt into my living room burner and it quickly filled the entire room with the gorgeous fragrance, I would say this is the perfect amount of wax as it gives it a really good throw without being overpowering.

The second wax melt I tried was the Black Pomegranate.

I was really excited to burn this wax melt as it isn’t a scent I’ve ever come across before and it sounded really delicious and fruity. I popped half of this wax melt into my kitchen burner as I was cooking and left it to burn afterwards as I hate the after smells of cooking and I love to burn a wax melt to get rid of these and I do find that the fruity ones are the best for doing this. Again the throw of this wax melt is amazing and I love how it sparkles.

Once burned down the wax melt pool looks really pretty.

The final wax melt from Wax Melts by Dee is the stunning orange & honey.

This wax melt has a fantastic throw again but it’s such a lovely and relaxing scent, you can really smell the grapefruit coming through underneath. I am actually currently burning this wax melt at the bottom of my stairs and even though our house is three story I can really smell it as I walk down.

These little wax melt pots are sold on their Etsy Page for ยฃ2.40 each which is a fantastic price as these will definitely last you a minimum of two times depending how much you use. Check out all their other gorgeous scent, they have some great Christmas wax melts on there for those last minute gifts.

Head over to Wax Melts By Dee Instagram page & give them a follow, you can also check out their huge range of scents on here.

I just want to say a huge thank you to Wax Melts By Dee for sending out these goodies for me to try. It’s been a pleasure working with you and I’ve really enjoyed trying some new scents.

Thank you so much for reading.
