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.

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
