Father's Day Amazon Gift Guide

As Father's Day is coming up in the UK on Sunday 17th June I decided I'd do a little gift guide style post using items from Amazon. Amazon stock just about everything so it's definitely the best place to look for a wide range of things that your father may like.

Silver WatchAmazon Echo
A Watch
My dad always wears the same one watch he owns so I'll definitely be considering getting him another to switch it up so that he has a choice.

Amazon Echo
 These things seem to be all the rage at parties nowadays with everyone shouting at Alexa what song they want and I feel this is the perfect gift for just about anyone, not just your father! It has a lot of different uses as well, not just to play music, such as being able to order directly from Amazon with just your voice.
Black And White ConverseBlack Panther DVD
A pair of classic Converse
My dad loves his pump style shoes and used to wear Converse a lot as they are such a classic casual shoe style especially in black and white.

Black Panther DVD
I'm a huge fan of all things Marvel and superhero related and so is my dad so this would be a great gift. Plus it's one of the best Marvel films and the DVD is out just in time for Father's Day. 
1 Million By Paco RabanneBest Dad In The Galaxy T-Shirt
1 Million by Paco Rabanne
I Love the smell of this Eau De Toilette and hopefully, your father does too.

Dad T-Shirt
A classic best dad quote in the form of a t-shirt. This one is Star Wars related and says Best Dad In The Galaxy. 
Dad Jokes BookNo. 1 Dad Chocolate
Dad Jokes Book
Does your dad tell any bad dad jokes? Then this is the book for him.

No.1 Dad Chocolate Bar
If he is a lover of chocolate then what more could he want than a huge slab of Dairy Milk that says No.1 Dad on?

No.1 Tape MeasureStar Wars: The Last Jedi DVD
No. 1 Dad Tape Measure
My dad is ALWAYS looking for his tape measure. I swear he can fix and build just about anything. He is definitely a no. 1 handyman.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi DVD
Another DVD, this time in the form of a Star Wars story. Another great film from recent years that any film fan is sure to love.
Dad's Workshop SignBeige Slippers
Dad's Workshop Sign
Again on the handyman theme. A sign for his garage/shed where he does all his fixing!

A pair of slippers
You can never go wrong with a good pair of slippers. You need some comfort on your feet inside especially after working hard on fixing everything in the house. 
Awesome Dad MugBeer Gift Set
Awesome Dad Mug
Another classic Dad quote, this time in mug form.

Beer Gift Set
My dad loves beer so any sort of beer gift set works well.

Watch, Flashlight, Pen & Wallet Gift SetBeard Care Gift Set
A watch, pen, flashlight & wallet gift set
This is a lovely little gift set that includes some great items. This would be a perfect gift for any dad.

Beard Care Gift Set
My dad doesn't have a beard and never really has but if yours does then I bet he will appreciate a beard care set.
Dolce & Gabbana The OneFitbit Charge 2
Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau De Toilette
Another scent in case you didn't like the first one.

Fitbit Charge 2
These are popular things at the minute too. Tracks your heart rate, amount of steps per day along with many other things. Everywhere I go groups of people are having competitions using these things to see who does the most steps day/week.

Baileys Original Irish Cream
This is the easiest thing to buy for my dad. He loves it! Plus he only gets it on special occasions like Christmas and Father's Day.

A BBQ Starter Kit
My dad loves to BBQ. Since the sun came out this month we must have had at least 6 BBQ's and it doesn't look like he wants to stop yet.

What gift are you getting your Dad for Father's Day? Let me know in the comments below and don't forget it's June 17th in the UK!

Every Body Is Beach Ready With Boohoo

Hands up if you have ever felt low in body confidence at some point in your life. I know I definitely have. I think that covers just about everyone right? I was always the one on the beach or by the pool wearing men's board shorts and a full swimsuit with a vest or t-shirt over the top. These last few years I have been slowly feeling more confident in showing off more skin and last year I really felt I had hit the most confident/comfortable place by being able to wear a bikini top/swimsuit with a pair of short swim shorts.

The title of this blog post was inspired by a great quote I have been seeing a lot lately. 'Every Body Is Beach Ready'. You don't have to go on some mad/unhealthy diet to get a summer beach body. Put on a swimsuit or whatever you feel like wearing and you are beach ready. Just don't forget the suncream! That's all there is to it. No body is perfect which means every body is perfect in its own way (cheesy, but true).

I know I'm definitely feeling beach ready in this lovely swimsuit from Boohoo. It is such a lovely fit and actually covers all the necessary parts, while still showing some sneaky bits of skin but is still secure enough that I won't feel like I'm going to pop out anywhere.

*These pieces were sent to me free of charge for the purpose of this post. All opinions are my own.
Blonde girl wearing black swimsuit
It features cut out mesh pieces on the neckline, down the waist and on the back which is in a racer back strap style. I will admit this style is a little difficult to get over my thighs/bum/hips as I am wider in that area but once on it fits me perfectly and is very comfortable.

I also chose this gorgeous cover-up dress too in this lovely peach and coral colour.  It features ruffles on the neckline and the cuffs and has rope style laces to tie up the neckline. I love the tie-dye effect it has. I feel it may not go perfectly with this swimsuit I chose although it does go perfectly with a bikini I already have.

If you are interested in either of these pieces they are called Brooklyn Mesh Racer Back Swimsuit and Amy Tie Dye Frill Beach Top.

Let me know in the comments below what you think of these pieces as well as a time when you felt the most body confidence.

Last-Minute Invitation To A UK Wedding? Relax!

Banner saying Last-Minute Invitation To A UK Wedding? Relax! with a rose bouquet background
*This is a contributed post. All opinions are the writers own.
There’s nothing more exciting than a wedding invitation. You can already see the bride in white and her groom in your mind, kissing in front of their tearful friends and relatives. You already imagine the music at the party after the ceremony, and you are almost certain that you’ll have to stay away from the delicious cocktails. You might even wonder if you want to restart your gym membership to look good in your dress – after all, a wedding gives you the perfect occasion to flaunt your fit figure in a dramatic open-back dress.
Except that when the invitation is short-notice, you may feel more stressed out than excited about the big day. Will you have enough time to prepare your arrival, find a room and get a present that will show your appreciation to the married couple? Relax. You can get ready for a last-minute wedding in no time. Just make yourself a soothing cup of tea and turn your laptop on: It’s time to go digital on your wedding preps!

Research the venue
First of all, sit down and check where the venue is. You’ll be surprised to find out that some of the most popular wedding venues in the country are also difficult to reach with public transport, such as the Lake District and its tranquil landscapes or the quirkiness of a Scottish manor house. But there’s a reason for the choice: Beautiful and quiet places are isolated, giving the wedding party some peace and fantastic backdrop to the pictures. But thankfully, popular venues have a website that takes you through its secrets, from the owls in Muncaster Castle to the lakeside setting of Waterhead. You can also find some travel instructions and accommodation recommendations too. Besides, you can directly get in touch with the venue and ask them for advice!

No theme? Go classic
What should you wear to a wedding? If the invitation doesn’t mention any theme — be glad you don’t have to go dressed up as Harry Potter, for a start – you can opt for a classic and elegant multi-layered dress, which is perfect if you haven’t had time to hit the gym! A brilliant alternative, if you’re worried about getting cold in a dress, is to wear a long satin jumpsuit. There are many original and attractive jumpsuits in high street fashion shops that will guarantee you’ll get compliments on your excellent taste.

Best last-minute present
When you only have a couple of weeks to think of a present, it can be difficult to find something personal. Indeed, you can’t be creative when you’re panicking! But relax, there are plenty of brilliant ideas that will make your gift unique and very original. You can plan for a monthly wine delivery, via a subscription for a year or half a year — which is always a hit for new couples! You can think ahead and get them a hotel voucher for their one-year anniversary, which is a cute idea to show your appreciation of their relationship.

In short, there’s no need to panic. Even with only a few days to plan, you can make sure to celebrate a last-minute wedding in style with the couple.
