Happy Friday! We’ve been busy this week scouring through our favourite blogs to decide which one to share with you. It’s always tough with so many fab blogs out there, but this week we simply had to mention Maria’s great vintage style, as seen on her blog Frills “n” Spills.
Maria has a great sense of style, and certainly provides some brilliant style inspiration for this season’s ‘Return of Retro’ trend. We particularly loved this 40’s influenced floral dress featured in her ‘mum’s the word’ post, and found it really hard not to fall for this vibrant red skirt – we’ll certainly be keeping a look out for something similar!
To top off all the fantastic outfit selections, she also regularly posts recipes including mouth-watering photos, such as this post on how to make a delicious looking apple and blackberry sponge pudding.
So whether you are into vintage styling or fancy trying your hand at one of her recipes, be sure to add Frills “n” spills to your reading list today!
Don’t forget to follow her on Twitter too!
This week we’ve been reading a great fashion blog called Cowbiscuits written by SJ, whose attention to detail in terms of her personal style has left us suitably impressed!
A girl with a love for accessories, SJ has a useful knack for deciding the appropriate amount to make the outfit, and we’d love to get up close and personal with her treasure trove of necklaces, rings, scarves, and even brooches! There are more than a few pieces that we’ve been enviously oogling, including a beautiful hair piece, a squirrel brooch, and this love ring.
She also likes to try her hand at cooking, and we can’t thank her enough for this mouth-watering Christmas Peppermint Bark recipe! A definite must for the festive season!
If you’re on twitter, be sure to follow her too!
So it’s officially Easter weekend… which means the start of school holidays, and lots of quality time with the kids and family!
Well, when all the family get-together, it usually means food. And lot’s of it! Obviously the kids (and let’s face it, you too!) are after chocolate, but if you want to give them something a bit different this year, then try your hand at making some delicious Easter biscuits. Very easy, and the kids can even help decorate!
And with the kids on the loose and looking to be entertained, it’s another perfect excuse to get them all dolled up in fancy dress! There’s simply nothing cuter! And little divas can get kitted out in the iconic Fame outfit, and boys can reach for the moon in a Buzz Lightyear costume. And make sure you find the time to treat yourself too – we’ve launched our brand new F&F Couture range which is almost as irresistible as a chocolate egg!
Easter simply wouldn’t be the same without the annual egg hunt. So while you’ve got the kid’s captured outdoors, why not keep them busy for a while longer and get them involved in some gardening? We’re not talking lawnmowers or anything too strenuous naturally. But getting your kids to start growing their own vegetables is a great way to teach them about the environment and the value of food from a young age. Plus, it’s fun!
To make sure the kids are wrapped up against our typical bank holiday weather, why not check out our great clearance deals, which include coats, jackets and other warmers!
Don’t forget that Easter doesn’t have to mean being cooped up in the house, as there’s some really great Easter days out all over the UK. Take a look at tesco.com for some inspiration.

Happy Easter everyone!
