Candles



My recent obsession has been candles!

Plain ones are boring but I love scented ones that you can smell when you walk through the door.

I'm really funny when it comes to scents, I don't like spiced scents at all. I smelt a spiced cider candle yesterday and it was horrible eventhough most people would probably like it. I like ones that smell like food and sweets aha.

I wish we could get Bath and Body Works Candles here in the UK. I ordered two minis on Ebay which came to almost £10! I actually thought they were bigger than they were. There is a website you can find them on with UK delivery but they're quite expensive and there are limited scents. http://www.bathandbodyshop.co.uk/

Wild Strawberry
Flower Shop


My favourite candle is one that I picked up from a card warehouse last year for about £2 ish! It's almost gone but for that price I should have picked up a few! It is cookie dough flavoured but I can't take a picture because it has fallen down the back of my TV and I can't get to it!

These Skittles candles were really cheap from B amd M Bargains for only 89p! I think you can get them in Poundland too. They have really good scent pay off.

Melon Berry
Strawberry


I got a few Yankee Candles for Christmas too, Ryan did really well picking the perfect scents for me! The Strawberry one is so good, I want to eat it and the other one is Pink Dragonfruit.

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon! Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park'       Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great

Astrid & Miyu

Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.
