The lovely peeps at GiftsOnline4U got in touch recently to ask if I’d like to pick something from their site to review. As soon as I saw their Personalised Moet* I knew that engraving one would be a lovely way to commemorate a very special occasion for me: My blog just had it’s birthday and LovedByLaura is now three years old!

The pint sized personal trainer’s Instagram account has built a massive following on Instagram thanks to her inspiring posts on fitness and healthy eating. That success has led to 3 books published so far sharing her favourite recipes and workouts. I chose to buy her first cookbook Eat Well Everyday as it sounded like a…

Last Christmas I treated myself to a curved screen Ultra HD 4K Smart TV to do just that and despite it being painfully expensive I can say without hesitation that it’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made! I hardly ever go to the cinema now because I prefer watching movies at home. I can put on a big spread, pause the show if I need a loo break and once I’m done I…
