Simply Be Review

Simply Be Review

I was super excited just before Christmas to be asked to pick a Simply Be outfit to review! With a £100 budget I had great fun exploring the site and filling up my virtual basket. After much deliberation I went with:

Simply Be Oriental Kimono Dress - £27

Simply Be Oriental Kimono Dress

I really love this dress! The print is pretty and I'm a big fan of the way the sleeves gather at the cuffs. I ordered a size up in this (24) which is something I usually do with tunic style dresses; I like a kind of 1980s slouch look to the tops after they've been cinched in at the waist. It works really well with this, and didn't impact too much on the length.

The fabric feels really nice on, and for £27 it's all around great value.

Double Breasted Emerald Jacket with Gold Button Detail - £44

Back in the PM - Pre-Marianna! - I used to have a similar jacket in a size 12 that I wore just about everywhere I could. So when I saw this on the website I knew I had to have it.

Again, this feels really good quality and - even though it was freezing out today - the fabric and lining are thick enough to be more than decorative. Talking of decoration though, I really like the detail on the gold buttons.

If you're a fan, the jacket is now on sale for just £31.

Pretty Secrets 1 Pack Black Supersoft Woolly Tights - £12

I needed a good pair of winter tights, and these seemed just the ticket. The on site reviews said that they came up large, so I ordered the Medium (16-20) even though I tend to buy bigger for comfort. This was definitely the right choice as the medium had plenty of room, but are still plenty warm and cozy.

Heavenly Soles Gold Fringe Shoes with Buckle - £13

I thought these were so cool! They've got a really 1960s vibe, and I figured they would make a great statement piece. Even better - unlike all the actual vintage 60s shoes I've ever owned - they're super comfortable. Anthony thinks the gold is a bit too much, but I'm very happy with them.

I haven't had chance to wear them out anywhere yet, but Marianna has made up for it!

Most of all, I'm really impressed with the value for money. I picked these items out to form a full item, but they're all pieces that can be worn again and again and styled in lots of different ways. With all the publicity these days about making more sustainable purchases this has great appeal.

I've no doubt I'm going to be getting lots of wear out of them!

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
