May Favourites & Wishlist

Hello, you lovely lot! This month I've found a lot of new items to add to my wishlist and I've also received some pretty cool items; I thought I'd share them in a concise blog post with shoppable links and discount codes! I've also included a few of my fave places to visit for my local and northern readers.

Firstly, my new Daniel Wellington watch has been glued to my wrist since it arrived! I was kindly gifted two watches, one for myself and one I chose to gift to my boyfriend! I kept the Bayswater in rose gold for myself; I opted for the 40MM face as it makes my wrist look smaller and I prefer a bigger watch face anyway! Jerome has the Classic Durham with a black 36MM watch face and silver detailing. I love how his watch compliments any outfit, casual or suited and booted! They really are the perfect accessory and would make such a lovely gift. Grab 15% off with my code SHANNONALEXANDRA (not an affiliate code, I don't make any money from your purchase).

Next up, this tropical Boux Avenue bikini. I'm lucky enough to be an ambassador for Boux Avenue, meaning that I get to try out the new launches and bring you guys the latest offers and competitions! I fell in love with this bikini when I tried it on - I'm verrrrryy insecure about my wobbly belly but this bikini tucks in all of my wobbly bits without making me feel constricted. It's comfy, vibrant, sexy and makes me feel confident; all I need now is a holiday...

Pump & Grind is possibly my latest independent cafe obsession. It's quirky, fun and serves up a plate full of delicious food with a side of sass. They also create the yummiest cocktails. The best bit? It's affordable! I always see my fellow London bloggers heading out to the coolest cafes and restaurants and I really think this is the northern alternative. I was pleasantly surprised to stumble across this little gem in Chesterfield centre.

Upshot Espresso has always been a go-to when I've been in and out of the hospital. It's a five-minute walk from the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield. I think I grew to love it due to the calm and positive atmosphere. It was a real cheery place to sit and have a brew after some horrendous days at the hospital. The staff are incredible and I can't fault a single drink, sarnie or cake I've had. Upshot is definitely worth a visit; I would visit much more often if the location allowed. I don't have any discount codes or offers, but the food and drinks are very affordable!
