Yes to: Coconut holiday essentials



Yesto is a brand I have heard a lot about in the last few years, they provide natural and innovative products and have an extensive range of products. I was so happy to get the opportunity to try range which came in perfect time for my holiday!

Moisturizing coconut oil stick- This is literally made for holidays its perfect! My skin is always so so dry especially as I was on holiday for 10 days I burn quite easily and always end up pealing. I applied this every night after showering, it made my skin sooo soft. My skin felt so hydrated, its super easy to apply due to it being a stick and absorbs into the skin really quickly. This was by far my favourite out of the range and I would definitely repurchase again.

Cleansing wipes- There are 30 wipes in the pack and priced at £3.99 they aren't the cheapest wipes on the market but they are definitely more than your average wet wipe. For starters they smell amazing, I used these through out the day on holiday and surprisingly they didn't agitate my sensitive dry skin although I didn't test them on my face I really enjoyed using them.

Ultra hydrating paper mask- is there anything better than a hydrating face mask? This is pe text for holidays after a long day in the sun too cool your face down and keep it nice and hydrated.  Priced at £2.99 to its so affordable although it did sting slightly when first applying but I do have extra sensitive skin!

Overall I loved trying out the Yesto Coconut range, I will defineitly be trying their Yesto cucumber and cotton ranges soon to!

Trint transcription service: what ever university student needs!


trint transcription


Studying at university can be hard and definitely comes with it’s stresses especially when it comes to third year or like me when your doing your masters degree and it comes to dissertation time. The work load becomes harder and whilst working at the same time it can feel never ending.

Recently I discovered Trint, oh how I wished I had this when I was dojng my undergraduate degree. trint is a transcription service than can transcribe information from just the drop of an audio file. Once the document has been transcribed you have the ability to search within the document and edit it to make any changes you wish. This would also be perfect for journalist, lecturers and even podcasters! 


For me I’m currently in the process of doing my dissertation and will be doing interviews as part of this so I’m quite excited to use it. this will save me SO much time. Previously I had 4 interviews to transcribe and it was so time consuming. One of the things I love about this is that is so easy to use you can download the Trint app to your phone and upload the audio file within seconds and have your transcribed document back within minutes. Trints service is also available via adobe premiere pro if you have that too!

Free trials are also available on their website which is great to try and have a little test with. this is honestly life changing for me it’s so efficient and easy to use and I think most university students will love it to!

Fathers day with bakerday





When it comes to fathers day lots of people struggle with what to buy their dad, for me its never been a struggle two ways to my dads heart is clothes and food. You can never go wrong with food. He like me also loves anything personalized especially with our baby photos from holidays ( mainly because he loves how tanned he is on them all).
bakerday offered me the change to get a personalised fathers day cake so I jumped at the chance. 
Bakerday offer a collection of cakes for any occasion which can be sent next day delivery through the door how cool is that?! They also offer cupcakes and balloons to. 

I love the tin the cake came in its so cute and can be reused for so many different things. The cake inside is so cute too, I love that you can add personalisation as it just makes it that little bit more special to receive. The cake itself is so yummy! They come in victoria sponge, chocolate chip, lemon, half chocolate half sponge and dairy and gluten free cakes too! 

They have kindly sent over a 15% discount code for my readers which is "OLIVIAMULHEARN15" if you fancy giving them a try! I would highly recommend!

The Summer shoe edit

At this time of year I always look in my wardrobe and think I need to get me some summer shoes, granted I never actually need them but honestly I cant resist. This year I definitely lacked some black sandals in my wardrobe. I have a lot of tan and multi coloured but when the weather is so unpredictable black can come in so handy! (Yes i went overboard on black shoes) 


primark shoes

First up is this bargain Primark pair for £8 you really cant go wrong. I love the pattern and the stud design around the edges. They honest are so spongy and comfortable and surprisingly amazing quality. 

topshop summer sandals
 I've had my eye on this Topshop pair for a while now priced at £29 I put off buying them for ages but I got a voucher so I thought it was about time I picked them up. They will be perfect for holidays and go with so many different outfits.

missguided shoes
 I picked this Missguided pair up in their £3 sale so they were an absolute bargain! I thought they would be great for work I love the silver detailing and the pointed toe. Definitely worth the £3!

primark shoes
  I have loved this style of shoe for ages now but never picked them up! When I saw them in Primark for £10 I had to pick them up! They had them in white, black and blue too. I love the grey colour as they'll go with so many of my summer outfits!

linzi shoes
 I love the twist on a traditional pair of espadrilles with them being slide on. I picked these up from Linzi for £20 these are great or British summer when the weather isnt always so summer whilst they can still keep your feet cool at the same time.

missguided shoes
Lastly is another £3 Missguided bargain these are gold with little ankle straps and I personally think they are so cute! These would be great for work or even with a 'nice top and jeans' kinda outfit they will go with lots of outfits too.

So there you have my new summer shoe collection which I'm quite pleased with! Thanks for reading!

bolsius garden candles

bolsius candles

bolsius candles

Bolsius were kind enough to send over some of their new range of garden candles. Bolsius is a brand of candles that I have tried and loved before, I have never been disappointed in any of their products. 

I love sitting in the garden on a summers evening with candles lite, my mum always has little lanterns and candles everywhere so it reminds me of being little. This bank holiday weekend we had family around to celebrate my parents anniversary so it was the perfect excuse to crack open the candles. 

Within the range their are tin candles, glass candles and tealights.

First up is the basil and citronella glass candle, I love the packaging of the glass range its simple yet with it being clear it allows the bright colours of the candles to pop through. The basil is such a lovely fresh and clean scent for the summer without being over powering. Its also a great scent for keeping away mosquitos away in the summer which is perfect. The basil tin candle is equally as lovely, I love the little tins that they come in too. 

Lastly is the citronella and rosemary glass candle, I love the colour of the candle its so bright and summery. This has more of spicy twist on a summer candle but i surprisingly really like it, its not too over powering as its lite in the garden. 

These are the perfect candles for the garden I'd definitely recommend trying them out!
