New Look‘s range of homeware and gifts has had me intrigued for a while now. I also bought a few gifts from there for Christmas gifts last year and I went into my local store last week, again I saw SO much stuff that I wanted. They’ve got so many cute and individual pieces that could brighten up a teenage bedroom, a first home or for like me – when you need all the cuteness.
Wax and Wicks started their own subscription box earlier this month. For £8 a month you get 6 scented soy wax packs, each pack contains 3 mini melts. They were kind enough to send me a box to review and obviously these are my honest opinions.
We’ve written about Wax and Wicks before and you can read all those posts HERE.
I think everyone is aware now of how subscription boxes work. This box easily fits through your letterbox so no need to wait in for it or come home to the red card! You can subscribe by the 1st of every month so no long contract is needed. Boxes are despatched on the 4th – or the next working day after this date. Read More
How is it already March!?
At the end of 2016 I planned out how I was going to set up my bullet journal for 2017. I wanted to track my wax usage as I have SO much to use up, so that I can sneak more into the house haha. Also I wanted to keep it up as part of my self care tracker too. So my plan was that I could use the monthly lists to keep my favourites so that I could update the blog with them. But I wanted to do more of a chatty blog so…
Well I’ve done the first bit. Not the second bit… so be warned this could be a rather lengthy favourites post. Vloggers tell you to get a brew for a long video so this is your reminder that you might want to do the same.
I started January with a few Christmas scents, I am one of those people who will have Christmas type scents in the middle of summer and the reverse. The Grinch from Scent Circus was one of my favourites of the Christmas selection that they had. I love their theme boxes and the attention to detail in all of their melts. I finally finished Cinnamon Sticks from Flamingo Candles, this was one of their Christmas 2015 candles. Absolutely loved that and gutted it never came back for 2016. Candywick had a fabulous Christmas selection too and I enjoyed Gingerbread and Cinnamon Buns. Read More
Have I ever said how much I adore the colour purple?
I LOVE IT! Not a little, a lot. This candle really made my heart sing PURPLE. I love the ombre trend and especially in a candle it really brings out the gradual difference in colours. It’s obviously perfect for the mermaid theme too. Flamingo Candles know me well it seems.
Who doesn’t want to be a mermaid!?
Go ombre or go home! The most perfect statement candle, this ombre delight comes in a variety of three colourways and three fragrances.
A juicy scent with notes of watermelon, peach and lime.
Ahhhhhhhh Christmas… yes I know it’s only November but now that Halloween and Bonfire Night are over, I now really start to think festive. No tree decorating yet though, don’t get too crazy just yet!
The lovely Flamingo Candles sent us both a box of goodies. One of mine was this gorgeous Sherry Trifle stag printed tin candle.
A contemporary Christmas tin candle with navy and pink stag print in a sweet, fruity, edible smelling accord of juicy fruits soaked in sherry with fruit jelly, sponge, cream and custard. Read More
