Five Things I Love Friday 013.

One. Little Nell.

Little Nell is the most wonderful online jewellery shop that I discovered after the lovely lady behind it, Penny Amey, offered Sailboat readers the chance to win a £15 spend, which is just wonderful of her! I’ve fallen in love with all of her pieces especially the little gold half penny necklace which I need in my life very soon and I know that there’s something for absolutely everyone on her website. If you’d like to enter the Little Nell giveaway then you can do so here & it’s open until the 11th of July!

Two. John Frieda Go Blonder Lightening Spray.
The first couple of times I used this I really didn’t see much of a difference and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting much at all. But after using it 6 or 7 times I’ve seen a huge difference in my hair & I’m really very impressed. I’m naturally blonde & when I was small I had really white blonde hair that I now miss very much. Over the years my hair has darkened and in recent weeks it had started to look super dull and lifeless. My hair now has been lifted by at least a couple of shades and it looks healthier and just much, much nicer than before. This is probably the best £7 I’ve ever spent on a hair product & I’d really recommend it! Keep in mind the instructions say that it’s only meant for blonde hair, so use with caution if you have darker locks!

Three. Day Trips.

♥ Taken on a day trip with my lovely boy! ♥
Over the years my mum took me on lots of day trips to everywhere imaginable! We visited lots of zoos, country houses & castles and although I some of them I can’t remember in much detail, I know I always had an amazing time when I was there. Going on a little day trip to Chesterfield & Bakewell this week has reignited my love of visiting new places! That’s something I’m already looking forward to doing in the future if I ever have children because I know how exciting it was for me when I first visited Monkey World or how magical it was when I visited a castle, that always featured so prominently in the stories I loved, for the first time.

Four. Bakewell.

Bakewell is a tiny town in the Derbyshire Dales that is so ridiculously adorable I never want to leave! I love sitting by the river watching all the ducks and munching away on a super yummy Bakewell pudding!

Five. Ice Pops & Calippo's!
I don't think there’s any particular reason why I love them, I just do & I have ever since I was really small! The blue ice pops are always my favourite, blue things always seem to taste the best to me and if they made blue calippo's I'd pretty much be in ice lolly heaven!
