favourite new things | 02


These Nike free runners have quickly become my current favourite pair of shoes, they are so ridiculously comfortable that they make any gym session feel like a breeze plus they are great to wear with jeans and a tee for a casual outfit. I got them around a year or two ago but have only just got them out of the box to start wearing as silly as it sounds, I'm not too sure what the exact model is and can't find them anywhere online but there are lots of similar versions of the free runners available.



Whilst browsing Debenhams I spotted a bunch of Tripp suitcases that were almost 1/3 of the original price so couldn't resist this greige coloured cabin sized version. I'm heading off on a fair few trips throughout Autumn, all of which I will be blogging about, so was super pleased to have found the perfect case to take along with me.

I've been after a transparent plastic refillable drinking cup for absolutely ages so was super pleased when I spotted these in Waitrose on offer at two for £5 instead of £10. I actually much prefer the look of them with the plastic sleeve removed which I find makes them look much more chic. Although it's no longer picnic season I'm using these to make sure I drink enough water throughout the day as they are huge, either that or I take one in the car for any long journeys.

I visited a local food festival a couple of days ago which is where I spotted Slamsey's, a brand which sell lots of different flavoured gins, if you love gin as much as I do then you absolutely must try a bottle. I opted for the raspberry version and adore how well it goes with lemonade and a fresh slice of lemon, I'm going to be stocking up on the larger bottle once mine runs out.

Milo has had his fair share of treats and gifts lately too. I found this grey little chew toy from pound stretcher of all places to help with his teething, I really like how simple and plain the design and colour are, often most dog toys can be really garish looking. I've also been plying him with these puppy development treats, if he's going to have treats then they should at least be healthy ones right? Last but not least is the collar that he's been wearing from Hiro and Wolf, most small dog collars can tend to be too thin to allow enough control on the lead over an excitable little pup which is why I much prefer the thickness of this one, it's really robust too.

  2. I'm getting a puppy in October so I am absolutely in love with the dog things you shared! You're right, a lot of dog toys look so terrible (who chose the colours?!) and that gray one actually looks nice! Also, the collar looks amazing.
