Lotus Biscoff has had SUCH a glow up these past few years. It has gone from the classic ‘hairdresser biscuit’ to now even having its own spread (which is excellent if you’ve not tried it).
Thought it was about time I jumped on the hype and I’m super glad I did. These little morsels are prettyyyyy fineeeee.
Before we get to it, here’s what you came for…
I decided I needed more than a ratty handmade quote to decorate my room at uni this year. There was only one place for the job. The holy ground: B&M Bargains.
Honestly that shop is a genuine spa day, I always come out feeling rejuvenated and ready crack on with my elaborate interior design ideas.
Here are 3 reasons why B&M is better than an actual spa retreat:
- At B&M you THINK you’re spending your life savings on crap, but get to the checkout and are pleasantly surprised. Whereas at a spa day you blow £200 to get naked and listen to whale music.
- At B&M nobody touches you with oily hands (except that one time…)
- At B&M you come out with loads of useless clutter. Spa day you leave oily and empty handed 😦
Thank you for coming to my TED talk x
Right enough chit chat, let’s get crackin.
