Father's Day Gift Ideas, With Personalised Parties

So the bbq I mentioned about in yesterdays post, was so good. It was nice to have a relaxing evening and watch a show on Netflix under the duvet on the sofa. I also may have fallen asleep and missed a couple of episodes! But it was a really nice night. The weather has gone a little cooler today, but I'm still hoping that we still get some more really nice warm days real soon. Hopefully, there be a few more bbq's yet!

I don't about you, but I always find it quite difficult to know what to get guys for gifts. Whether it be for my boyfriend, friend or dad, I always know what to get my girlfriends and my mum, But when it comes to getting a guy a present, I don't always know what to get them. As Father's Day is coming up, for today's post I want to share with you a few ideas on what you could get for Father's Day, from Personalised Parties. Getting someone a personalised item makes it that bit more personal and special, which is why I am loving these two items that you can see in the photos above and below. I am very honoured to be collaborating with Personalised Parties, to bring to some gift ideas for Father's Day.

I was kindly sent this notebook and mug, which I personalised myself on the website. You may remember a little while back I write a post sharing a couple of super cute Unicorn products by Personalised Parties. Having previously chosen to have the products personalised before, the website is very easy to navigate around and to personalise your gifts. With the gifts I chose in this post, I decided to go for the bicycle-themed ones. I think they are so cute and know that my dad will love them. You can personalise the back and front of these. I just decided to personalise the back of them.

There is a range of different products that you can choose from in the Father's Day section of the website. There are more notebooks and mugs with different designs, chocolate bars and wrapping paper, all with matching designs. The products are amazing quality and affordable. My items arrived safely in the post and well packaged.

Meet My May Advertisers

What gorgeous weather we have been having. I had bank holiday weekend off work, so it was nice to just relax and chill out. My mum and I had a bbq on Sunday, and I'm about to have another one in a little while. Got to make the most of the sunshine. I can even hear an ice cream van playing its tune in the distance! I've also been playing outside with Jasper the dog, blowing bubbles. He loves chasing the bubbles. It's so fun to watch! Anyone else's pets love playing with bubbles?! Mmmm, the bbq smells so good. What did you get up to over the bank holiday weekend? I met up with my friend Louise for a catch-up, which was so nice as I've really missed her. One of our locals has just re-opened, so we went there for a drink and sat outside, next to the river.

I want to say a huge welcome to my May advertisers, Alana and Louise. If you would like to advertise with me over on Clemloves, I have 3 different packages to choose from and prices start from just £2.  There's the Butterfly package, the Dolphin package and the Unicorn package. Click here to find out more. If you would like one of my packages, you can email me at or DM me at @clemloves. I look forward to hearing from you. 😀

How (Not) To Date A Prince by Zoe May | Blog Tour and Extract

Happy Saturday! I hope you had an awesome May the 4th, beings it was Star Wars Day. I would love to know if you went to any Star Wars themed parties or celebrated the day watching Star Wars films! I also hope that you have an amazing bank holiday weekend. Mine is going to be spent writing and taking photos, meeting up with my best friend and watching lots and lots of Netflix! (Just in case you were wondering, I'm most likely going to be watching lots of episodes of Friends)! What are you up to this weekend?

Today's blog post is all about How (Not) To Date A Prince by Zoe May. Keep on scrolling to check out an extract of chapter 1 from the book, your gonna love it. I really wanted to create a type of Princess theme in my photos to go alongside this blog post, so I found this sparkly tiara and also put Chip into the photo too. I can't even begin to tell you how happy I was when I found this Chip cup in Primark. I didn't get one the last time the Chip cups came out, so as soon as I see this Chip blowing bubbles one, I literally just grabbed it straight off the shelf! I am just loving at how much Disney stuff Primark have currently got in at the moment, I love it!

If you head on down to the bottom of this post, I've added the blog tour banner so you can check out all of the other blogs taking part in this tour. I was kindly sent this book to read and I am so honoured to be part of this tour for How (Not) To Date A Prince. Definitely a book I highly recommend checking out and reading. Just look at how gorgeous the front cover is! Zoe May is also the author of Perfect Match, which I can't wait to check out too, it looks and sounds so good. You can find Zoe over on Twitter at @zoe_writes.

The £2 Pink Glitter Lipgloss

Hey there lovelies. It's a bright and sunny day here in the UK. Yay! Maybe this means that hopefully soon I can have that BBQ! I popped to the shops today and it was so so busy. The sunshine had definitely brought everyone out. Even though it means shopping can be a bit more hectic than usual, it makes me feel all summery and I love seeing everyone enjoying themselves. All I wanna do now is go to the seaside and have fish & chips!

Today's brand new blog post is all about this gorgeous (see photos above and below) Shine Shine Shine pink glitter lipgloss by Essence. I absolutely love makeup by Essence, (as you may already know)! Check out my post here, on their Kiss The Unicorn Lipstick. Also, you can check out the Balmy Kiss Lip Care, lip balm here. Also just to warn you, there will be another Essence blog post coming very soon! Anyway, it's been so long since I have worn any lipgloss, but I really just fancied wearing some. So I popped into my local Wilko store and found myself this beauty of a lipgloss. It's pink and sparkly, what more could you want in a lipgloss!? I don't know why I suddenly wanted some lipgloss. Maybe it's because my collection of lipsticks is still slowly growing and so I just fancied something different to wear on my lips!

Essence has an amazingly huge range of lip products, and each one of them is just so gorgeous. But this was the lipgloss I was drawn too. It just wanted to be worn, and my lips just wanted to wear it! I remember when I younger and at school, and all of my friends seemed to be wearing lipgloss, it was like the latest craze. During each break between lessons, they would get their lipglosses out and apply some. I think it was mainly because lipgloss can look very natural on the lips, depending which shade you get and you also don't have to have glitter ones, so no one really took notice that it was being worn!

The Amazing, Under £5, Leave-In Conditioner

What is it about my dreams feeling so real recently?! Does anyone else get dreams like this? They just feel very real. Sometimes I wake up and I have to think for a few moments if that really did just happen! I think I dream most nights, I don't nessacarliy remember them always, but I know I do dream a lot. I really should start writing them down. I know you can get dream journals, maybe this is something I should start doing! Does anyone else keep a dream journal or just write down your dreams? I would love to know. Anyway, enough about my dreams, I hope you are having a lovely week so far. I'm so happy that the weather has been really lovely and sunny today. Hopefully, we are going to have a few more days like it.

Today I want to share with you, one of my most favourite hair products to use. It's the Palmer's Coconut Oil Leave-In Conditioner. I've been using this for a little while now and I absolutely love it, and my hair loves it too. By the way, this post is in no way sponsored, I just really love this product and want to share it with you. When it comes to hair products, I'm always a little unsure of which ones to buy. My hair is quite thin and I also dye it blonde, so I always love products that are moisturising. But as my hair is quite thin, sometimes certain products can make it feel all icky. Like when you condition your hair in the shower, but accidentally miss some of it, and it makes your hair feel horrible. You know what I mean?!

I think, to be honest, my hair now is probably the healthiest it's been in a long time. It just started to get quite dry and I started getting quite a lot of split ends. As I'm still trying to grow my hair longer, keeping it healthy is really important to me. Over the years I haven't treated my hair as well as I could have done. Quite a few years ago back when I was at school, I remember using hair straighteners every day. I did this for quite some time! Some days I even straightened my hair maybe 2 or 3 times. It definitely didn't do my hair much good. I haven't straightened my hair now myself for years. As I got a bit older, I then started dying my hair and having bleach on it. I also ended up having to have my hair cut quite a bit shorter as the ends of hair were just getting wrecked. It's only really recently that I have really started to care for my hair more.
