The Country Candle Company

The Country Candle Company

The Country Candle Company are based in Wiltshire, England where they create beautifully scented and packaged candles. I have two of their candles from the Celebrations collection. The Tonka Bean and Vanilla one is my favourite – it also has hints of cinnamon and clove so is a gorgeous Christmas candle without being overly Christmassy,…

Parrot Print Dress

Parrot Print Dress

A few weeks ago I came across a fabulous website called Not On The High Street.  They have so many lovely things from clothes and shoes to home and garden stuff.  I could so easily spend hundreds buying things for my new flat!  I’ve just moved into my first unfurnished flat so most of my…

HelloCanvas

HelloCanvas

A few weeks ago I ordered a canvas from HelloCanvas who I hadn’t actually heard of before but they are apparently the worlds largest creator of photo on canvas prints.  I’ve been so impressed with them – my canvas arrived really quickly and it looks good.  I wasn’t sure that the photo I chose would…

Bassbuds Headphones & Discount Code

Bassbuds Headphones & Discount Code

My latest pair of headphones are from Bassbuds, just plain black but with Swarovski crystal on the back making them a little different.  The headphones give a really good sound quality and have a handy pause/play button towards the ear end which is good as you don’t need to keep getting your iPod/phone out of…

simplehuman Sensor Pump

simplehuman Sensor Pump

A bit random but I just had to tell you about my new simplehuman soap dispenser – I love it!  It has a motion sensor so when you put your hand underneath it dispenses just the right amount of soap depending on what volume setting your dispenser is set to.  It needs four AA batteries,…

Remote Control Candles

Remote Control Candles

Remote control candles might sound  a little strange  to you but I think these are brilliant!  They look surprisingly realistic and unless you are looking right down on them you wouldn’t know there was no real flame.  You can switch them on and off at the base but need to use the remote for the…

Zing Organics Nude Collection

You might remember my review a few weeks ago of a candle from Zing Organics?  Well here’s another one!  This is the clove, patchouli and vanilla scented candle from the Nude Collection and it’s just perfect for winter.  It’s not too Christmassy that you have to wait until December to use it but it does…

Munio Candela Soy Wax Candle

I’ve had a Munio Candela candle from MyPure before and I really loved it so thought I’d get another one.  I went for the candle poured in a brown jar in the scent “Inspiration”.  There was nothing on the website to tell me what “Inspiration” would smell like so it was really just a random…

Zing Organics

Zing Organics is run by a lovely lady called Kirsty who makes eco and organic candles which are entirely natural and dye free with completely recyclable packaging.  I was thrilled to be sent two candles to review, one scented with cinnamon bark and white pine and the other with neroli and lime.  So far I’ve…
