Sainsbury's Candles

I was in Sainsbury's the other day having my eyebrows threaded (such a relief having somewhere in town which now does threading) when I decided to have a mooch around the home department. Browsing I found these amazing candles. 

Passion Flower and Mango

Heady notes of peach and mango rest on passion flower, sandalwood and soft vanilla. (Taken straight from Sainsburys website as it didn't come with a card or box with any information)

Wild Cotton

A fresh and clean wild cotton fragrance with delicate floral undertones (Sainsbury's website)

I remember when the candles launched in Sainsbury's and how wonderful the smelt. I was going to buy them then but I was in a rush and didn't have time. I completely forgot about them until I was browsing today and smelt them.

My favourite two scents out of the 5 (my Sainsbury's only had 5 there might be more) are Passion Flower and Mango and Wild Cotton. I was also very happy to see they had 3 wick candles and for the amazing price of £6. Yes £6! I am someone who has spent £40 on buying 3 wick candles and these Sainsbury's ones are amazing that smell divine and are a fraction of the cost. Also they have many other types such as a 1 wick candle, one in a jar and a larger one than this size.

I also bought the reed diffusers. They smell amazing. I am so happy. I plan to repurchase these. I also saw in another part an Elderflower and Mint candle. Didn't have time to smell it but I will see if it smells nice. I also want to buy the Sainsbury's White Fig & Patchouli Wax Filled Glass Candle. They didn't have any in stock but I remember it was the first candle I smelt when they launched and it was so nice.

There are loads more scents. Have you smelt any? If so which ones are your favorites?

An instagram haul

OMG, I have not blogged since December! Anyway, I thought I would share with you a few things I have bought over the past few months. The pictures are from my Instagram. I actually like this display more than how blogger displays import photos so will be using this more.
For my Birthday in May, my mother and I went on our annual mother and daughter holiday and this year I decided to go to Russia. It was such a beautiful country. The palaces in Saint Petersburg! Oh my goodness, I loved it. We did a River Cruise so from Saint Petersburg to Moscow with stops at a few small villages. I loved it. Anyway since I was there, I thought for my birthday I would treat myself to a bag I had wanted for ages, the Lady Dior bag. I love this bag so much, it oozes class and it an elegant, classic piece. It’s in lambskins so I have to be very careful with it but it’s such a beauty. I didn’t get the patent leather though as I found it’s too difficult to open the bag (also heard a lot from reviews not to g…

Touche Éclat Foundation & Anti-Cernes Concealer review

I had always wanted to try the Touche Éclat Foundation. I have seen so many beauty bloggers rave about this product, however I resisted for a while because I love my Chanel Vitalumière Aqua. However, after I came back from holiday, I had tanned so I decided rather than buying one shade darker in the Chanel foundation, I would try out the new YSL one.

I went to John Lewis and the lady colour matched me, I went with one shade lighter than she suggested because on my skin any type of foundation oxidises so much and leaves my skin dull.

Initial thoughts, I love how it made my skin look. My skin looked healthy and slightly dewy but not oily (I have dry skin). It doesn't feel like you are wearing anything at all. It is a very light coverage but still does even out your skin tone. I am not sure I would wear it for a night out but I love wearing it in the day. Doesn't streak and blends beautifully. I use a Real Techniques Expert face brush to apply it. I didn't particular notice any…

Luxury haul ft Chanel, Christian Louboutin and Tiffany & Co

I have been very lucky of the past few months to buy some lovely luxury designer items and so I thought I would do a post of what I have bought.
Chanel Mini navy blue wallet bag with small purse

I really wanted the Chanel WOC and so when my mum and I went to Florence on our cruise holiday I decided to go into the Chanel store and see if they had it. They did and so the lady showed me the WOC and this one. Now I personally thought I would go for the WOC, as it was black with gold hardware and this one was in navy blue. I fell in love with this one. It's in patent calf leather, navy blue in colour and with silver hardware. It is beautiful. It also comes with a small purse inside. I don't actually know the name of this one and I did try to search for it. Anyway, it has a small chain and a zip compartment inside. It can fit quite a bit in! Also it is very resilient and doesn't scratch easily.I am very ashamed though that this is my fourth Chanel bag. I remember when my dream wa…
