Primark Tea Lights


Y’all know I’m obsessed with Tea Lights right? 

I can’t stop myself from buying them, although, it has been a while (are you proud?).

However, I’m running low on my pineapple and ginger tea lights so, unlike a normal person who waits to actually run out before purchasing more, I have purchased more.

I really like the scent of these because the pineapple isn’t a terribly fake smell and the ginger isn’t over powering. 

I wouldn’t say that they lasted terribly long but for £1.30 you get 30 so I’m not complaining. 

They’re a light yellow too and so tie in nicely with my tea light holders. Is that sad that I’m giving that as a reason to buy them?

Anyway, has anyone purchased any tea lights recently? What’s your preferred scent?!



Stationery Wish List!

Okay, it’s all just notebooks but I want them all.

Hey hey

How are you today?

So, yeah, I kind of really want some notebooks. I don’t why because I have a few in my flat at the moment and I really should use them up but there’s something about a fresh notebook. I always tell myself I’ll do my neatest writing in this one or I won’t scribble a word out, you know weird things like that. Anyway, it never happens.

I think at the minute I’d like one because after my op I don’t really want to just sit still, I want to go out and do things, make things, write things. I’m getting a little muddled with my eagerness to do everything possible so I feel like notebook would keep me in check I  guess.

Below I’ve listed four current faves from Paperchase and Urban Outfitters because they are amazing, wonderfully weird and I love them.

Anyway, have a lil lookaroo or purchase them by clicking on the pics!

Do any of you lovely readers have these? Do you try and stick to random rules for your new notebooks? 😀


How To Store Your Lushy Lush Things!

Good Morninggggg!

How are you today?

Today I wanted to talk about storing all those beauty products such as makeup, hair sprays or, you know, Lush stuff.

My goodness do I have a lot of Lush stuff!

To be fair, I was given an awful lot for my birthday and also a lot from friends after my surgery. I am not complaining though!

But as fabulous as this is to be showered witb Lush items, where does one store it all?

Before now, I’d never really had a designated area or box or drawer but instead there were stacked high in the bathroom. I lived my life on the edge everyday.

However, it all changed when Iain bought me a massive, sparkly box filled with Lush stuff! Now, he won’t tell me where he got it from but I think it’s from Paperchase 😀

A few weeks later, I was presented with another sparkly box from friends! It was pink with a black bow and filled high with my favourite Lush products, chocolate coins, a Lush scarf and biscuits. The biscuits were magical.Now, these boxes fit perfectly in our bedroom and they just add a lovely sense of girliness. I’d love to make them more of a feature in the room but they don’t quite go with the furniture so I need to play around with them.

Now that all my Lush stuff was safely tucked away in the bedroom, I needed to sort out the bathroom as I was sure one of the products would drop into the toilet at any point.

Iain had bought some baskets from Wilko’s and we decided that it would make the bathroom look tidier and a bit brighter. With two each, I allocated one of my baskets for my Lush things.

They’re great, deep baskets (didn’t think I’d be writing this at 25) and they have a waterproof lining which is very helpful for any Lush spillages!

I think it’s nice to have your favourite beauty products stored prettily- it just makes you feel that extra special when you come to use them 🙂
Do you store your Lush/beauty products? If so, how?


Next Haul- Tealight Holders!


How’s it going?

I have a confession. I am obsessed with candles. It started harmlessly when I moved into my flat about two years ago. I didn’t have them on a lot, they were reserved for special meals or for when guests came round. This carried on for some time and even in October of last year, I rarely had them on.

But then Christmas happened. I became obsessed. I loved the atmosphere they created, the smells they produced…the glass jars, the accessories you could purchase with them…I couldn’t resist.

After already having a range of Yankee candles that had sweet, rich scents, I turned to tea lights. This way I could offer a warm glow in pretty little glass jars, I could colour match, I could play Interior Designer.

I purchased a lot of tea lights and my mother fuelled my obsession- cranberry scented, apple and cinnamon, the list goes on. It was time therefore, to give these little lights a home.

Last Monday, I innocently strolled into Next, not intentionally looking for tea light holders but there I found myself, staring at them all. I searched high and low and quickly snatched up three beautiful ones.

I opted for hues of blues and oranges as this went nicely with our ornaments and overall feel to our little flat. I didn’t want anything that said Love on or Shine Bright as this isn’t really my thing and I much prefer patterns- I also have to consider the boyfriend!

So, there I stood at the till point with three glass tea light holders. I paid under £8 for the three and could not be happier. They feel like they are very good quality and the burnt orange holder is made from recycled glass.

I was so surprised by the price as I feel Next is notorious for being pricey but I’m finding their home ware to be reasonable and modern. I think it’s a great place for just adding little touches to your home and you know the quality will be excellent.

At the minute, they’re moving about all over my flat but I think I’ll place them on our dining table although they look lovely on one of our chests of drawers in the bedroom…

Have you also got a candle obsession??
