Tea and chocolates alike come in different flavours: Orange Blossom, Natural Jasmine, Mulled Spice, Rose and Natural Lavender. They sound delicious and also look pretty too, don’t you think? I may have to dabble in edible petals for my truffles, methinks. I’m fairly sure I saw edible rose petals and the like last time I was in St Giles Cheese (seriously awesome shop in Northampton).
The Twinings floral teas also happen to come in super pretty tins. Pretty pretty. I think that may be the word of the week! Check out the Mulled Spice tin to get you in the Christmas spirit (oh come on, it’s practically November now. Totally allowed).
Robochoc. Yes, you guessed it, robot shaped chocolates. Who wouldn’t want robot shaped chocolates? I want them. See how awesome they look:
Eee! I saw them in Abraxas (one of the best shops in Northampton) and fell in love. I then made the mistake of looking up the Silikomart website, where I also fell for these:
The trouble is, I actually need some more truffle moulds- it’s just a case of whether I am sensible and go for the plain ones, so I can sell batches of nicely matching, classic-looking truffles and chocolates… or whether I get ones shaped like robots and little animated people.

That feeling that perhaps this notebook will be the one that contains only good ideas and actually stays neat; no crossing out, no scribbles, no mess. Sadly that was never the case!
The Jpop range at Paperchase is just way too cute- if I was going back to school, I would want everything.
I’m sure I would have remembered things more at school if they were highlighted with these:
Homework would not be a chore if everything was in this handy planner:
I would convince my mum that if I had this, I would never want for another ring binder again:
