Treats To Your Door Review

I was recently asked by a brand new company called Treats to your door to review one of their boxes. After a little bit of research into who this company was I was thrilled. My weakness is sweeties so anything to fuel this is a yes from me! I was asked to purchase one box at the price of £3.50inc deliveryand then review it. The company has promised to send out an additional 2 boxes free of charge which I thought was extremely kind.

Placing An Order

This was super easy to do, I believe they are Instagram based comapny so to order a box I sent them a DM message to which they replied really quickly. I passed on my shipping details and payed via paypal. I received an order confirmation email within seconds of placing the order. I cant fault this at all. Great service.


Unfortunately I cant give this a shining review. Delivery took over 4 weeks. I do however understand that the snow fall earlier this month threw a massive spanner in the works and boxes had gone missing and took a while to be delivered. this is completely  understandable and expected if I am honest. When I contacted Treats to your door questioning where my parcel is they replied very apologetic and explained the issues they were having with the snow. At the end of this message they explained if I hadn’t received my box within the next couple of days please get back in touch.

With that in mind I waited still very pleased with the overall service. A week went by and still no parcel so I messaged again. To my surprise I had no reply. I continued contacting them with no replies. I was very disappointed.

The Package

After a few people on twitter started discussing the company and explaining they had the same issues as me, I had kinda given up hope of receiving my box. but then to my surprise my box was delivered! the box itself was extremely bent up with a huge hole in it. and peering through I could see that a lot of the sweets were loose in the box.

Treats to your doorThe box itself was plain with a hand written address. when I opened the box I was greeted by a little thank you note that explained they were sorry for the delay. (Lovely touch) and they explained what sweets I had received. The box was plain and presentation was sort of IMG_0205bland. I think some sort of tissue paper or some sort of colour would really make this box stand out, but all companies have to start somewhere. Some of the sweets where wrapped in a little plastic wallet which made the perfect little snack size. Unfortunately I assume due to transit a lot of my sweets had fallen out of these little plastic pockets.

The Sweets

In my box I received:

  • Love hearts
  • white chocolate Jazzies
  • Fried Eggs
  • Strawbs

All the sweets tasted amazing and where all off high quality. I could not fault them at all! I wish the box did contain a few more sweets but I’m greedy so I will always want more haha!

Overall I would give the box a 6/10 a think its a really lovely idea that with a little more work could easily become a 10 out of 10!

Day In The Life….

For Today’s post I thought I would do a bit of a day in the life kinda post… I have not done anything like this before so I hope you enjoy it!

Tuesday 27th February 2018

Today I woke up at around 6.30 and continued to snooze my alarm till 7.00 this is so typical of me and it’s a habit I need to break! I popped the kettle on and then made the bed I love making the bed I find it super satisfying just me that finds this? Anyway yesterday I couldn’t find my Fitbit charger so I turned the flat upside down to try and find it, Anyluck? No! I don’t understand how something can just vanish so I headed to Argos on-line and ordered a new one! It cost a whopping £17 so I am not to impressed!

By 8.00 my tea had gone cold so I re heated it in the microwave I am forever doing this! And then made myself a huge bowl of porridge, I am working today so I need all the energy I can gather, it is only a short three hour shift but the short ones tire me out so much haha! While the porridge was heating up I gave the kitchen a quick tidy and wipe over with bouquet Zoflora (I forgot to do this last night!) I also popped a Load of washing on aswell it’s amazing just how much you can get done in two minuets.

While I scoffed up my breakie I checked my social media, I also had a read and comment of some blog posts too. I do this pretty much every morning and I love it. Leave your blog links in the comments. I  would love to discover some new ones! While I was doing this I created a Vero account would love a cheeky little follow over there…Life With Fernie Thankyou!

Skincare products I used today.

28504584_10209003364319928_134600312_oAt 9.00 it was time to get ready for the day. As I’m only at work today I opted for minimal makeup and hair in a pony tail it took just 20minuits to do including my skincare routine and getting dressed, so I decided to spend a good half an hour or so giving the flat a good speed clean and tidy and put another load of washing on it’s not stop glam for me today!

10 o clock came and it was time to think about a cup of tea! I was gasping for one after all the cleaning! I was rung up by Work asking if so could come in earlier so with my cup of tea I had an extremely early lunch! You see that’s the downside to working shorts shifts over lunch time! No chance to eat lunch at a sensible time! Today for lunch I decided on a tomato and herb mug shot pasta, if you28554977_10209003364039921_680675365_o haven’t tried them you must, they are delicious and are less than 1% fat. With that I had a Mediterranean herb wrap to dip in my pasta (is that weird?) and finally a bag of sweet popcorn and a Alpen bar. That should keep me going till Tea time later!

I got in from work at around half 3 and oh me oh my I was starving! I literally could not stop eating! I decided to cook an extremely early tea! Tonight we had sweet potato chips (homemade) with chicken kievs and veggies yummy! We decided to cook together today which was really lovely! I love cooking with Liam,I wish we did it more often.28504420_10209003363279902_593206300_o

With Tea in the oven it was time for a well deserved cuppa. I was super busy at work so it was well needed! I just can’t get enough of earl grey tea, I’m pretty sure it’s becoming a serious problem!

28641113_10209003363119898_1993598660_oAfter we had eaten our tea I washed up and put everything away! This is such a good habit to get into, if you can wash and dry up straight away it always feels like your winning at life! I also took this opportunity to make me and Liam’s lunches for tommorow, we’re both working so it’s a lunch box kinda day.  I am feeling so bloody organised!

It’s now 5.15 and I am going to sign off this post here before it gets mega long! My plans for the evening are fairly boring but I can’t wait for them! My plans are to catch up with some accounts, edit and upload this post then have a pamper session and binge watch Friends with Liam and I can’t wait for it!

I hope you have enjoyed reading a totally random post from me! I have loved writing it and it’s put me in the best mood! If you have liked this and want to see more of them please let me know! I may make this a weekly kinda series. Let me know what you think?

Our 5 Years

Feeling Fabulous!


A Family Breakfast

Today I visited a lovely little cafe for some very yummy breakfast! This cafe is in our local town and is lovely. they offer a wide range of breakfast and lunch options along with lots of milkshakes, healthy smoothies and the classic teas coffees and hot chocolates.

26972912_10208739442722053_1723139599_oI went to this Cafe with Liam, his sister and her two tiniest daughters (the big one was at school) the cafe was lovely clean and inviting and the staff made us feel very welcome.On arrival we sat down and fetched some menus and the waitress took our drinks and food orders. Liam went for a cup of tea with a bacon roll, Liams sister decided for a cooked breakfast with a latte and I fancied the mango,passion fruit and pineapple smoothies with French toast. 

We didn’t have to wait long before our food arrived and when it 26972570_10208739442562049_79653001_o.jpgdid it was delicious! My smoothie was amazing and I have not stopped thinking about it since. my breakfast was also incredibly scrummy! Everyone else scoffed their breakie up with no complaints so I am sure the feeling was mutual.


It was so lovely to spend some time together and have a giggle and put the world to rights. Its something we do not do very often which made it so lovely and special. and we have all agreed to do it again!

Spending time with family or friends and doing something as simple as just meeting up for a breakfast can lift your mood incredibly! I have not stopped smiling all day and I feel like I am on top of the world. Family is so special and I quite often forget just how much they mean to me. I am 100% going to grab every opportunity to spend time with family and friends from now on. And make sure they know just how much I love and care for them…

If you have any suggestions of fun and cheap things to do with family and friends let me know, I would love to try some new things out!

Organising My Fridge

I am sure to some of you this will be a very dull and completely boring however if any of you are like me with a secrete love of all things housework, organising and cleaning this will be an absolute treat for you!

The other day I came home from our weekly shop and started to put everything away (this is something I find super satisfying!) When I got round to putting all the chilled bits and bobs away I realised how messy my fridge was. Something had to change!


I started of by taking a steps back and looking at the food I already had in there. Some of these things I am ashamed to say were way past their use by dates and needed to be thrown out. this cleared so much room the new and fresh foods.

IMG_0054Next up I started by emptying the whole fridge and giving everything a really good wipe down with my Zolfora. If you have not heard of Zoflora Google it now its mazing and I have a serious love for it! I use an old spray bottle filled with a couple of caps of Zolfora and filled with water. This is the perfect disinfectant spray that also made my fridge smell AMAZING!

When Everything was clean it was time to re organise the shelves and the inside of the IMG_0058door. I put all our fruits and vegetables in the tray at the bottom, Meats above that then dairy’s above the meats. I decided to keep the top shelf clear so we can easily store our lunch boxes and water bottles.

IMG_0061Next I looked at the door and realised I had no need for three sections. I kept all drinks in the bottom section and sauces on the one above it. I did not want to waste the empty container that now was not needed so I decided I would use it to keep our eggs in. I played around with different positions of this and lost two eggs along the way haha! but I finally settled on the container being placed at the back of the fridge.

I am in love with how organised and fresh smelling my fridge now is, if you have any tips or secrets for keeping your fridge organised and clean let me know! I love hearing and trying out new ideas.

Food Shop Haul And Meal Plan

Today I thought I would share with you a weekly shop for both me and Liam. If you read my last post Dear 2018 you would know that one of my New Years goal was to loose some of the weight I have put back on. So We tried to plan this weeks meals more healthy than we are used to but still enjoyable.

This food shop cost us a total of around the £40 mark and that should keep us going for a week we had some bits left from last weeks food shop aswell. We did our main bulk of shopping in Lidl and brought the fruit from Sainsbury’s. In me and Liam’s opinion the fruit from Lidl never last longer than a day. Everything else from Lidl has been super yummy and can’t complain at All! I hope you enjoy this slightly different post and if you would like more of these let me know!

I Meal Plan every week and hang up the weeks menu in the kitchen. I brought this lovely chalk board from B&M bargains ages ago now and I love it. With out meal planning I would be lost, and I love how it looks in my kitchen.

I only tend to plan our evening meals, this works best for me and Liam as we both work shifts so meal planning lunches as well would be a nightmare! I always make sure there is wraps and an array of fillings for our lunches and there is always some other bits and bobs in the cupboard for lunch as well.

This Week We Are Having…

This is the Main bulk of our shopping. We love the wraps from Lidl so soft and they keep really well to! The tropical juice has also been a bit hit to! I love it. It’s the perfect drink to have at breakfast and tastes amazing to. Me and Liam eat so many rice cakes at the minute, I especially love them with cucumber and a little cream cheese a delicious lunch.

Here we have everything for the freezer. We decided to buy lots of frozen veg that we can have with out meals. Me and Liam eat a lot of chicken so we picked up this huge bag of chicken breast for around £3, we are yet to try it but fingers crossed they taste as good as the Lidl chilled chicken breast. I had meal planned to have a ready meal one night while Liam is working late and I came across this chicken and vegetable pasta. It looked really yummy and was fairly good for you to, so I thought I would give it a go.

We picked up a handful of bits for the fridge too, we go for semi skimmed milk as it tastes almost identical to whole milk while being a little bit better for you. We also picked up some light cream cheese, I love this on my rice cakes for a snack or a quick lunch DELICOUS!

I absolutely adore crisps! There my favourite go to snack! So when I saw these in lidl I had to pick them up. I’m hoping there going to be a slightly healthier to my favourites. This girls can not give up her crisps!

Finally from Sainsbury’s we picked up a couple of different types of fruit for snacking on throughout the day! The strawberries I have already eaten a couple and they were lush! And the apples were amazing too! Really good quality fruit which only came to a couple of pounds, happy days!

I hope you have found this post somewhat interesting and if you would like more of these let me know, I rather enjoyed writing them.

Monthly Wishlists

Dear 2018

After a short break over the Christmas season, I am back with a new post. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas season and received some lovely gifts. I am so ready for 2018. I have deep cleaned the flat, the Christmas decorations are down and I have been thinking about some goals I would like to achieve in the year of 2018.

If you have any goals for 2018 I would love to hear from you, we can do this together!

My Main goal is to be a happier and more content version of myself and I have a few ideas about how ill get there!

Number One:

This is going to be the hardest to achieve. I have decided its time I  started loosing weight again. Earlier last year I Managed to loose nearly two stone and I felt amazing! this really helped improve my mental health and my acne too. The past few months I have slipped back into old habits and the weight has tumbled back on!  My goal is to loose 2 stone, its going to be hard but I am sure I will get there, if anyone else has a similar goal to me, please get in touch I am thinking about creating a twitter group chat so we can all offer each other motivation and support.

Number Two:

I am a lover of routine, however the past few months my life has followed no routine and its starting to really bother me. I am going to spend the month of January working on cleaning routines, day time routines and night time routines. Basically I need a routine for everything haha! My blog posting  has not followed any sort of schedual also so I have been thinking about it and have deciede on the following…


Number Three:

Drink more water, this sort of links with Number One, I hardly drink enough water, I drink plenty of tea if not too much but no where near enough water. I aim to drink at least a litre of water a day, this is going to be tricky but I am going to try so hard. This will hopefully also stop me from snacking. Fingers crossed I can do this!

Number Four:

I am a big advocate for “me” time, however in all honestly the past few weeks I have not taken enough time for myself to just relax and be me. Its time I listened to my own advice and take some time out my busy life and relax.

Number Five:

This is my last one and I think its going to be equally as hard as Number One. Its time to let things go! I am constantly getting myself upset or annoyed because of the tiny little things in life. its time I just let it go and not let it bother me any more. I have no idea if this will be achievable but giving it my very best go will hopefully equal to a happier more contented me.

I would love to hear what you think of my goals? have I taken on too many? if you are interested in my little group chat idea let me know I would love to hear from you.

Hope you all have a lovely New years and I shall be posting again on Monday with a food shop haul!

A Festive Night In

For me long winter nights are the perfect excuse for a pamper and chill out night, and that is why for today’s post I am going to be sharing with you my top tips for having the most perfect festive night in!

Todays post is also a collab with with amazing Chloe from, she is so sweet and she has also shared her Cosy Christmas Night In with everyone over on her blog, so make sure you have a little look at her post and share some love their too!

Tip Number One:

me time.jpgSet aside plenty of time, During this busy season finding time can always be a little bit tricky. I am a true believer in there is always time if you plan for it. if you can rearrange your plans and routine just a little bit, I am sure you can find a few hours of just you time. It super important we allow ourselves time to relax, it keep the mind healthy and during the Christmas time we all need some “me” time.

Tip Number Two:

IMG_40331.jpgI always find the best way to start a night in, is by having lots of yummy food to hand. I thoroughly recommend a takeaway or just having lots of yummy sweets,crisps and chocolates ready. During the festive season I absolutely adore gingerbread especially the cooperatives mini gingerbread men their scrummy! and terry’s chocolate orange! or why dont you go all out with a cheese board! whatever you love to eat, this is your time so enjoy them!

Tip Number Three:

bathI think this is the most important step to creating your perfect festive night in, and that is have a bath. what is there not to love about a long soak in the bath. Now is the time to fill the bath so its over flowing with bubbles, use your fancy and special body washes and lotions, turn up the Christmas music or read a cosy festive book. however you love your bath do it! Maybe be wild and combine tip two with tip three! eat your snacks in the bath maybe?

Tip Number Four:

I think this is my favourite step to a festive Night in. Time to get cosy! being cosy is my elf.jpgfavourite ever thing to do, I love it and its when I am happiest. It is now I would recommend grabbing your festive PJs and fluffy sock! if you do not have festive pjs maybe just wear your favourites, turn on them fairy lights, light your scented candles (I highly recommend candles from MelsMelts) and make your self a hot chocolate! I am cosy just thinking about all of this!

Tip Number Five:

This is my final tip and I think its the perfect way to end your festive night in. Time to snuggle down with your snacks, hot chocolate and blankets and watch a Christmas movie,  I have a whole post about my favourites here if you want any recommendations!

I hope you have enjoyed my tips for a festive Night in, If you have anything you think I should add let me know! what are your favourite way to chill out during the Christmas period?

Make sure you also have a look at chloes post, its so lovely and really made me feel ready for a night in!

Cheerio For Now,

Liam’s Christmas List

For todays post, I thought I would do something slightly different and special, by now you must all be so fed up with all my posts, so today we are mixing it up. Today my partner Liam is taking over my blog and is guest writing for me. He is going to be telling you all about his favourite things about the Christmas season.

hope you enjoy and be kind to him haha!

Cheerio For Now,

Fern xx


Hi its Liam, here is a list of my favourite things to do with Christmas! 🙂 Hope you enjoy!

1. Snow Days

Due to current weather in England, it has reminded me how much snow makes everything seem much more festive, we don’t get it very often, maybe once every 2 years if we are lucky but it changes the whole atmosphere, at least for a few days. Walking through town to see the snow covering the roads and paths, people out helping others stuck in the snow. It empathises on the word community, everyone working together to help others in need and that’s what I feel like Christmas is all about!

2. Food

I am a big fan of food, anything and everything, I will most likely eat and I also seem to be blessed of not putting any weight on no matter how much I eat which is a bonus. My favourite Christmas food has to be Pigs in Blankets, I could literally eat an entire plate of them! Whoever thought of simply wrapping sausage with bacon is a genius!

3. Spending time with Family

As me and Fern are now moved out and we are going to my parents for Christmas morning and her parents for Christmas evening. Spending time with family around the Christmas holiday and especially Christmas day, is one thing that I could not live without, everyone happy, spending time with each other, opening presents and having a big laugh, just what family’s should be doing on Christmas!

4. Christmas Films

When me and Fern are both off from Work, its nice to just sit down and relax while watching a film, one of my favourite Christmas films is obviously Elf, which has to be on everyone’s list and of course Home Alone, which coming to realise while writing this, I am yet to watch this Christmas, must add it to the list before Christmas finishes!

5. Presents

Wrapping presents has to be one of the most iconic Christmas things to do, simple boxes which take less than a minute to wrap and then everyone’s favourite, the annoying triangle or cylinder shape present which takes a life time to wrap. Luckily Fern is good at wrapping so ill just stick to the nice and easy ones while she handles the annoying ones 🙂


Well this has been my little list of what Christmas means to me, just the little things which all add up to make Christmas one of the best times of the year!

Hope you’ve enjoyed and ill see you again soon!

Bye, Liam.



Christmas Shopping Tips and Tricks

I feel as if today’s post links really nicely with yesterdays post, if you have not already had a little read of my Christmas gift guide for her, then you can find it here. Today’s post is all about my tips and tricks for ensuring all your Christmas shopping runs smoothly and stress free.

Start Early

For me this is so important, we have such a huge family so its vital I start thinking about budgets and what I would like to buy everyone.I start the whole process off in September by buying a new notebook, that I dedicate to all my Christmas needs. I will then allow my self some time to write a list of everyone I would like to buy gifts for and look at my finances and decide suitable budgets.Without spending a little bit of time doing this ill go crazy and spend all my money and have hundreds and hundreds of presents to wrap and gift. These lists keep me focussed.

Keep Your Eyes Peeled

I have picked up some amazing presents and really good prices by just keeping my eyes on lookout while I am out and about. I do this as soon as I have written my list and If I see it I buy it. The amount of times I have seen something and a week later its gone and not to be brought back into stock is heart breaking. By Picking up bits and bobs over a few months and storing them away is so handy, you end up with some amazing gifts and really good prices and when the shops are super busy with everyone doing there shopping you are almost done so you can enjoy the festive season even more.

Shop With A Focus

Sometimes you cant pick up everything in little bits so you need a big shopping trip.Its important to do this with a plan and plenty of time.Allow time for browsing and long queues. Bring a friend or family member and make it an event! stop for lunch and have a lovely day, enjoy the festive displays and the atmosphere.

Before you go agree on the shops you would like to visit and what your looking for this keeps your shopping focussed and then your only entering shops you need to. if you have some spare time you can always wonder round the shops you didn’t have planned

Wrap As You Go

Dont leave all your Christmas wrapping to the last minute, you wont enjoy it and it can become very boring. I love wrapping presents and I love spending time to add bows and Ribbons. I enjoy wrapping presents , I usually make myself a hot chocolate listen to Buble and wrap away. I find if I wrap presents as soon as I buy them I enjoy it alot more, I also love looking at the piles of presents building up under the tree. it makes me super happy.

I hope you have found my tips and tricks helpful, if you have any more please let me know! I still feel like I havnt quite mastered the Christmas shopping but I am getting there.

Cheerio For Now,

Christmas Gift Guide For Her

There are so many of these posts around and I love them. I love reading these for present inspiration and I love looking at these and deciding if there is anything I wish to add to my Christmas list.

Here are some gifts for her that I am almost certain that everyone will enjoy!

Food and drink

This time of year is all about food and drink, and that is why I think it makes such lovely presents. you can find some amazing food and drink hampers and gift boxes pre made or you could always make and gift your own full of their favourites. I love these sorts of presents and I am sure your loved ones will to.

Here are a few little hampers I think look especially AMAZING!….

356755-everything-collection-NEWHotel Chocolat, have the most amazing gift boxes and hampers, they can come in all different styles, tastes and prices. and their chocolates are simply divine! they also have a section just for secret Santa presents and I thought that was very handy to know! The Everything Chocolate Hamper Gift Collection describes its self as some of the most celebrated recipes in our entire chocolate collection. An effortless chocolate hamper gift for any chocolate-lover. This retails for £25 and I think its an amazing price considering everything you receive with it.

Another Amazing food and drink hamper company is Prestige Hampers, although a little SW004-16more on the pricey side they offer hundreds of hampers to suit anyone’s taste buds! for me I especially loved the look of their sweet delight gift box, its describes itself as a fabulous and generous assortment of everyone’s favourite taste bud experiences with flying saucers, Jelly Beans, chocolate caramels and more. This box is currently on sale for £26.99 and I have fallen in love with it!


I think Candles are always such a lovely present to receive. I never think you can go wrong with candles, I personally love them and can never have too many! I also think candles can suit any budget, you can pay hardly a penny fro some really lovely candles or you can spent a fortune of white company candles. all of which I am sure would make a lovely gift! While I am an absolute lover of Yankee Candles, I am starting to find they are ridiculously priced for what they are! I started looking for alternatives.
img_38401.jpgThat is when I came across a lovely company called Mels Melts on Etsy. She makes the most AMAZING candles,wax melts and tea lights and they smell INCREDIBLE! her candles are priced so reasonably and they are also packaged really sweetly. I personally find her candles produce such a lovely smell and in my personal opinion smell even better than Yankee Candle. You must all head over to her sites and see for your self! they really are a candle game changer!

I am certain these will make such a lovely present for someone this year. I received my order really quickly so is perfect for any last minute gifts. They IMG_3846[1]are so many scents to choose from but I personally recommend choccy Truffle and gingerbread. My whole flat IMG_3847[1]smelt good enough to eat and I was super upset when I had run out! I need to do another order I think! I think these would make excellent stocking fillers or you could even buy a couple and make your own little candle gift set, the possibilities are endless! The candles can even come gift boxed so that makes things even easier for you, the boxes are super sweet and the candles fit in them perfectly.

Check Her out here!
