After starting my Beauty Blog a while ago, I started really enjoying doing monthly favourites posts. Posts where I can share all of the beauty things I enjoyed the most that month. I then started thinking, why don’t I do that for Simply Delicious too? So here I am, sharing all of my favourite ‘living’ goodies with you. You can expect everything from homeware, decor and food in these posts. One of the perks of being a blogger is that I get sent a LOT of stuff. Ingredients, wine and other delicious goodies fill my house but I often find writing an entire post about a chocolate bar just doesn’t work so I can share the things that I really, REALLY loved here now. Disclaimer: the goodies in these posts are things I really love. Things I will go buy for myself or have already re-purchased myself. I am not going to feature every product I am sent nor is every product I feature one that has been sent to me. I hate disclaimers but I just feel I need to tell you that beforehand. And so, here are my favourites for May:
White Tea & Ginger candle from Woolworths – I bought this candle a few weeks ago and oh.my.goodness. It was love at first smell. I have it on my bedside table and burn it every single day. It fills our entire bedroom with this beautiful, spa-like scent. I am contemplating buying a few more to dot all around my house. Like my brother said, “it smells rich. Like what rich people’s houses smell like.” I’m OK with that. Buy it here.
Le Creuset Batter Bowl – I have never made a secret of that fact that I am a Le Creuset addict (but who isn’t, really?). I love everything they have to offer and their products have a way of becoming those ‘old faithful’s’ in my kitchen. This batter bowl is no different. I use it for everything from marinades and batters to dressings and sauces. Just the most handy thing and so beautiful! Buy it here (or here if you’re an International reader).
Country Road Tapas Mug- Look, I’ll admit it, I’m a bit of a mug-whore. I buy mugs like they’re going out of fashion but these mugs are by far my favourite at the moment. They come in an adorable range of colours and I think they are just so gorgeous. Simple design but still a little quirky. They also hold the perfect amount of tea or coffee for me. Not too big, not too small. Just perfect. Love! Buy it here.
Lindt Hello range – I am not really a chocolate gal. Give me a bag of chips and I’ll inhale it but chocolate I can do without. Then I got sent a big box of these gorgeous chocolates and I have been converted. Not only is the packaging just wonderful, so creative and cute, the chocolates are to die for. With flavours like Caramel brownie, Cookies and cream and my personal favourite, Crunchy Nougat, you can’t go wrong. (Available exclusively to Woolworths in South Africa.)
And now for the exciting bit, Le Creuset has agreed to give one of my readers a beautiful little gift pack filled with their new black spatulas. I use the Le Creuset spatulas every day and they are by far the best out there.
