That’s it. I’m a candle addict and I need professional help. When Yankee Candle emailed me about their Summer Sale earlier this month I could not pass up the opportunity to have a Yankee candle summer sale haul. Read on to see what goodies I picked up at a discounted price!
For many students at Uni, summer means going home and spending a good three/four months with family and friends. My decision to rent privately with my boyfriend means this isn’t an option as we have a flat, contracts and jobs we can’t leave to then return to in preparation for my final year at Uni which begins in september. This time can often be difficult for me as I see all my fellow friends from home snapchat/instagram/update any other social network with pictures of home and it makes me crazy homesick. So, I’ve decided to write a blog post reminding me of five happy things.
Every summer I seem to find myself new essentials: new sunglasses, new summer clothes and a new balm to prevent my skin from chapping from the hotter weather. Last year my go-to was Carmex (a great contestant in my eyes) but when I saw this new product on the market, Dr PawPaw original balm, I knew this was this years candidate. As I waited for it in the mail, I began to notice my lips had already become quite dry and chapped so I couldn’t wait to apply it and see if it helped me out. All it took was 24 hours to help resolve my chapped lip woes but the best thing about this product is that isn’t just a lip balm – it’s a moisturiser, a conditioner, a lip finisher as well as many other things so be sure to keep reading to find out why this deserves a place in this years summer essentials.
If you’re new to my blog then you need to know my obsession with the Satsuma range from The Body Shop. Seriously, I’m a real addict and when I visited my local store I couldn’t resist having another whiff! Well you know how it goes, one thing leads to another and I walk out the store with another product to my satsuma collection and I justified it as I finished my Body Mist (see my last empties post here) – not that I really need a justification, I’m hooked! But this time I stayed away from the shower gels and body butters, I decided to buy the Body Shop satsuma eau de toilette bottle as it will be perfect for these summery months ahead! I wasn’t aware that Body Shop done their own perfume range so I’ll be reviewing my recent purchase so anyone thinking of grabbing hold of one or those that also didn’t know they exist know exactly what they are all about!
A few months ago I made my first MAC purchases, I know, how have I gone this long and not given into temptation. I decided on: MAC please me & ruby woo.. Continue reading to see if they really are worth the hype.
