Woodland Wick Candle 

I have been loving this candle, after having all of the christmas scented candles burning for a few months it was really nice to have something different. This smell is exactly what it says on the tin, it’s a cotton/linen scent and fills the room up with a clean fresh smell. One thing I love about this candle is that it’s huge, so there’s no problem with the scent not covering the whole room and it’s not overpowering despite being quite heavily scented in the jar. I love how the wicks of this candle are proper pieces of wood, there aren’t your standard rope wick. As the wicks are wooden it adds to the aroma of the room and gives it a slight woody edge. The colour of the candle fits in perfectly with the scheme of my bedroom as it is all mostly pink white and grey. I would definitely recommend Woodwick candles.

Mac Lipstick Velvet Teddy

On a day to day basis I tend not to go wild with my makeup as I am only going to work. I like to add a little bit of a “your lips but better” colour in the mornings just to help brighten up my face. Sometimes I will just apply a lip balm, but recently i have been adding this Mac lipstick on top and it just gives my lips that extra little bit of colour. This is such a beautiful shade, it’s a dusky/rosy pink and matches my lips really well.

How To Be Calm

Towards the end of January I have been having a bit of trouble with my anxiety. Reading this book when I get home is really comforting. There are so many lovely pages with quotes that help you to relax and feel uplifted, it helps me take my mind off of the things that are getting me down. Sometimes I don’t even know what I am worried about, just sitting and reading really helps to settle my mind for a while. I am really grateful to my lovely mum for gifting me this at Christmas.

Fluffy Socks

January was a super cold month! And there is nothing I love more than putting on a pair of cosy fluffy socks and sitting in front of the fire with the tv on. I don’t always to have a slippers on when I have my feet up on the couch, fluffy socks are the perfect addition! I have collected quite a good collection of fluffy socks now, i don’t think i will be running out any time soon! MY favourite pairs are from Primark, for around £1.90 you can’t get much better can you?

I really hope you enjoyed reading this post. I am going to make it one of my goals to make sure I upload a favourites post every month!

What I Got For Christmas 2018

Hello lovelies,

I had a wonderful Christmas this year spending time with family and friends.

I got a few lovely presents amd the first thing I opened was this 2019 calendar which I love the pink and the gold look so great together. To go along with the theme I also opened up this lovely planner, the colours are gorgeous and I love the rose gold running through it.

The next present was a Chip mug I had been looking at these for a while and never went for it so when I opened it up I was very happy, Beauty and the Beast is one of my favourite Disney films.

I also opened up a lovely burnt orange/ rust pom pom hat which is lovely and will go with lots of items of clothing. The bobble onto is faux fur and the material of the hat is very soft, I’ve already worn it a few times and its very warm!

I also got this cute little hollow chocolate raindeer, along with some other chocolates such as a toblerone, matchmakers and and a lovely box of chocolates from my boyfriend’s parents.

I got a few different perfumes this year which I am so happy with and grateful for. My boyfriend gave me this perfume and body butter set from Next which is called White Amber, I adore this scent and think it is so wearable.

My parents also brought me a perfume which happened to be by Ariana Grande, I am currently obsessed with her and her music I have always loved listening to her music and I think she’s such a great role model! This perfume is called …… and its a very sweet scent it is perfect if you are a girly girl like me and do not want to wear a scent that is too heavy.

The last perfume I was gifted was from my lovely Grandma, this was a shock when I opened it up as it was totally unexpected. The scent is quite mature and sophisticated and that is one of the things I love about it, the more i wear it the more I love it I think it will be perfect to wear to a fancy meal or an evening out.

I also opened up a couple of books which I was really happy with, one of them was The Book Of Calm as I have anxiety my mum thought it would be nice for me to have. When I am feeling stressed or anxious i can flick though the book and there are lots of lovely quotes, i thought it was a really meaningful gift that will help me to stay positive

I also received a pair of fluffy socks which are always needed. I love wearing them and getting cosy in the evenings as I always seem to get cold feet.

I was given on gift set this year which was the soap and glory Pinkcredible set, in here there is a scrub, shower gel, Hand cream, face mask and a body butter. I love the original Soap and Glory scent it is a classic.

The last thing I received was a beautiful charm to go on my Pandora bracelet. I have had this bracelet for a few years now and I love it because on birthdays and christmas’ I usually receive a lovely charm to add to it. All of my charms were silver, I really love rose gold so my mum bought me this open heart work charm which is so stunning and really stands out.

I am so thankful for all of the gifts I received and this post is in no way meant to be ‘boasting’ or anything like that. I really enjoy reading posts like this so wanted to create my own!

I hope you have enjoyed reading, let me know what your favourite gift was this year in the comments!

February Favourites

Hello lovelies, sorry I’ve not posted for a few days I haven’t been feeling too well. I really like to read these types of posts so I thought I should give it a go for myself. I’m going to be writing about pretty much anything that I’ve been liking over that particular month. Because I started my blog at the beginning of this month February will be my first monthly favourites post!

There have been a few things I’ve really been enjoying through february one of which is the Wilde Like me book I mentioned this in my Sunshine Blogger Award post because it has become one of my favourite books. I love how its such an easy light-hearted read. It’s about real life and a Mother who has a 6-year-old daughter she’s divorced is back out looking for love as well as that she is trying to build up her career as an assistant MUA and is offered a big job, I don’t want to give the whole story away but it is such a good book. I’ve got about 40 pages left, and then I will be waiting for the sequel to be released!

My next favourite of the month is the Nivea face cream. As the weather has been so cold and I have naturally quite dry skin it makes it even worse, so I use this cream on any of the dryer patches on my face and apply it before I go to bed and in the morning. I like to use this cream when my skin is dryer than normal because it’s thicker than my Body Shop Vitamin E Moisturiser, i think it’s a bit more nourishing and hydrating on my skin.

I LOVE candles! Since it’s the start of a new year I wanted to use something new that i hadn’t tried before. Because i own so many candles my mum actually put some wax melts into my stocking at christmas and i decided to save them until the new year. I’ve used this melt about 5 times and the scent is still going really well i love Yankee candle and the idea of wax melts because they are definitely a lot less money and they give off the same amount of pay off with scent in my opinion. I really love the smell of pink sands and i will definitely be repurchasing!

I haven’t been too well health wise over this past month so I haven’t been wearing much makeup because I had to go out anywhere or really been feeling like wanting to wear it. The one thing I have been using for when I do go out is my collection lasting perfection concealer, its great for covering up the dark circles under my eyes due to my lack of sleep! I feel like I look a lot more alive after I have put a bit of this concealer as it helps to put a bit of colour back into my face which is great ahah.

I’ve also been catching up on lots of tv over February, I’ve really been loving Jack Whitehall’s series Travels with my Father which is on Netflix currently, I find myself laughing pretty much the whole way through each episode. There are also new episodes of Call the Midwife each week on BBC1 which I absolutely love its one of my all time favourite shows, it’s really a cosy show and i just love everything about it even if it does make me cry every time!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and next month hopefully I’ll be feeling better and there will be a few more things for me to show you!
