Celebrating Easter with delicious treats | Gifted*

How great is it when you are at work and then a delivery arrives for you! This amazing little box dropped on to my desk yesterday and I was too excited to delve inside but I had to refrain so that I could take a couple of snaps to share with you all too.

When I got asked if I would like to receive a delivery from Biscuiteers I jumped at the chance as I have been wanting to try these for ages! I have seen them included in lots of PR packages and new brand releases that my favourite YouTubers 'unbox' on their channels. I felt pretty excited that I would receive my very own beautifully decorated package.

Perfect Picnics with the Popcorn Shed | AD

I personally love a picnic! For me there is nothing better than an array of food where you can help yourself, have as much as you want and try lots of things! I suppose anything like Tapas, or a buffet I am game for! I was recently invited to a friends for a Saturday night catch up and as soon as she had mentioned that she will get us some snacks in I was like hell yesss! I packed the prossecco and the popcorn and she provided crisps, dips and other 'dippable' items.

Bouncers at Hull Truck | Review*

'This new production of Bouncers has been re-imagined for the new generation of nightclub goers'.

Darren and I were invited this week to visit Hull Truck to watch the performance of Bouncers! We saw it advertised a little while back and said we really wanted to go so when the opportunity arose we jumped at it! We had heard so many great reviews of the performance over the years so we wanted to check it out for ourselves.

New Year, New Me, New House?

Firstly, Champagne & Lemonade is now 7 years old! For 7 years I have shared various thoughts, feelings, photos, memories and so much more! It has been a journey, starting off as a Fashion blog, making its way to beauty, covering home wares and events along with food reviews and travel now, I just call myself a lifestyle blogger who doesn't really have a niche. I think the great part of having a blog is to document your life. Last year I shared a lot around my wedding which I loved doing. I have been thinking a lot whether or not to carry on with my blog, whether to completely start again from fresh, whether to migrate platforms and even if to change the name! I think what a lot of people don't know when it comes to blogging - it actually costs money to make some of these changes and right now I don't feel that i am in a position to be able to invest in this.
