Candles candles candles!

It is safe to say that I have an unhealthy obsession with candles. And unfortunately it is not the cheapest of hobbies! After buying all different kinds, from all different price ranges, I have come to the conclusion that it is worth spending that little bit more to get the nicer fragranced, longer lasting, better quality candles.

The candles I am trying at the moment :
True Grace - Jasmine Tea - £25
Jo Malone - Pomegranate Noir - £22
Yankee Candle - Cranberry Ice - was £16.99 now £8.99

Yankee Candle Tarts - were £1.49 each, now 45p

Silver Birch

Red Apple Wreath 

Christmas Cookie 

Bay Leaf Wreath 


Firstly my Jo Malone, it really is beautiful. It was a gift from my best friend Steph, for  Christmas. I don't use it that often as it is quite a small one but when I do, it does tend to last a while. Perfect for a relaxing bath! I am also in love with how Jo Malone present their products and wrap them up. To me that can sometimes be as important as the products themselves. Buying premium products, you expect the quality and service that comes with the price tag and I think this is perfectly executed in the gorgeous way my candle was wrapped. In celefane with a small ribbon bow, along side a beautiful box of long black matches and information cards all packed beautifully in the classic Jo Malone box in a gift bag. I will definitely be heading to the Jo Malone shop in York soon!

My True Grace candle was a gift from my boyfriend for my birthday. Although these candles are £25 I feel like they are worth every penny. Such intense luxurious scents.
I have had mine since October and has literally just run out tonight, although I don't have it lit every day I really do feel that they have a long life. The jars are really beautiful as well so I think now it has run out I will be using it to put my Yankee Candle Tarts in!

Finally my Yankee Candle bargains!! After visiting the designer outlet in York today I decided to take a look at their little store. They had all the Christmas stock reduced to half price and 3 for 2 so I got one jar and my mum got the other two. I also decided to get a couple of the little tarts to test out some different scents as I have heard a lot about them but never used Yankee Candles before.
So far medium jar in Cranberry Ice is going down a treat. As the little ones are christmas scents they were reduced down to 45p!! I may have to save these for Christmas this year as I can imagine them setting a lovely decorating the tree vibe!! (I am getting excited already and it's only just put the tree away like 2 weeks ago!) I was also persuaded (very easily) by the cashier to try the room sprays. For £1 each I am pretty happy with them as well.

Lush Cosmetics treats!

My first post in quite a while!
After my recent obsession with baths and bath related products, I decided to pay a visit to Lush for what must have been the first time in about 8 years!
And I must say, I was not disappointed! Along with some old favourites there, I fell in love with their more recent collections.
Being admittedly a major pastel addict the colours drew me in first! Soooo pretty!
After a some careful basket filling, I decided on the following:
Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar
Cream Candy Bubble Bar
Space Girl Bath Bomb
Pheonix Rising Bath Bomb

(I have used two of these already and I only went after work yesterday!)

Then I spotted my old favourite.....ROCK STAR SOAP!!
If there is one thing I do not need in my bathroom, it is more soap! As my best friend works at The Yorkshire Soap Co. She tends to spoil me rotten with all sorts of treats! However! This one I could not over look. It smells just so dann good! :D

Finally I saw the face masks, I didn't really have a clue what each one did or which may have been the best for me. It was then I spotted an old friend who modelled for my final collection. She works at Lush York and was able to help me big time deciding what I should choose! After discussing how I wanted something to help me with black heads she recommended the Cosmetic Warrior. Made from garlic, tea tree oil and lemon, it is one of the most refreshing products I have ever used and after using if for the first time last night I would really recommend it to anyone looking to draw the impurities out of your skin.

So far I have used the Candy Cream Bar and face mask in my bath lastnight and I got excited to try more so used the Space Girl Bath Bomb today. I will have probably used them all with in the week but I will have fun trying them and already can't wait to go back!

This gorgeous outfit was sent to me by the lovely guys over at 

I very rarely am able to find dresses that fit so well that I don't have to make any alterations, but this dress is perfect!
It also has a lovely bit of gold detail with a small belt that goes around the waist.

The shoes are to die for!! I would have worn them for my graduation if I hadn't already bought my outfit!

And the little bag is perfect for all occasions, I can see me getting a lot of use out of it!

Really love this dress and will be wearing again very soon :)

Can't wait to work with again! :D

What If I Say I Will Never Surrender - Lookbook Post

My Outfit post for the day! 
I wasn't going to do one today but then THIS arrived! WOOP WOOOO!!
Haha I still get far to excited by post <3 I can not tell you how happy I am with it, I guess I wasn't expecting so much as it cost just over a tenner but I am really pleased with how the sizing has turned out. The shorts could be a little bigger for me personally but thats just cos ov ma ass!

Use this bag every day, wasn't to sure about it at first but now I just love it! As it has a long shoulder strap as well it tends to go with a lot more outfits than I thought it would!

Trainers are the ones I got from asos a few months ago, still trying to keep them as spotless as possible ha

Can't wait for the rest of my stuff to arrive, should have some more posts up some time after next week! 

Have a great weekend!!! x

Parma Violets - Lookbook Post

A look book post from a few weeks ago I didn't have chance to post on here!

Purple polo skater dress - I made this myself :) I took the pattern off one of my favourite dresses that I love the fit of and made it up in a few different colours. I think this is my favourite as I love the lilac colour but also the jersey fabric is polo shirt material so would be a perfect tennis dress ^-^

Black heel Jelly shoes - The I bought off eBay for about £4, I managed to get them a few weeks before the price of them went up everywhere! I also used my nectar points converted in to eBay vouchers so I actually didn't really pay for them at all! :D

Sunglasses - These were also a cheeky eBay purchase Bought for just a few pounds! Anything ordered from Asia on eBay does take longer to arrive but is more than worth it for the price and I am nearly always very happy with the quality! Currently considering how much I need these in the other colours :p

The Flower crown - This is one of my own I make for my part time little business Roses and Bones 
The purple one is definitely one on my faves! :)

Anyway, hope you like!! If you want to go hype my look please go over to 

Thanks!!! xxx
