Yankee Candle

I am a HUGE fan of Yankee Candle so was over the moon to be sent this GORGEOUS large Sunflower jar! It’s making a special appearance on the Yankee Candle website which means it won’t be around for long so snap it up while you can. I just LOVE it, Sunflowers are my favourite flower, it such a pretty jar I can’t help but smile when I look at it 🙂 Other special appearances this month are Lavender Vanilla and Cotton Candy. I love the sound of Cotton Candy so have added that to my birthday wishlist *hint hint* 😉

lights by TENA

lights by TENA created me my very own SOS kit last month, full of things that will help me get through each day! The chocolate flake tea is amazing and I cannot live a day without using dry shampoo!

I love the SOS shopping bag and they also make me my very own apron…

Love my apron so much, I’ve never had an apron before but use this every time I am cooking now. I always used to make such a mess so this just saves my clothes. A huge thanks to lights by Tena for my awesome SOS kit 🙂

I’ve been sent this Krill Oil supplement to try. I really suffer with pre-menstrual symptoms so I am always willing to give things a go if there is a chance they will alleviate my symptoms.

Cleanmarine Krill Oil for Women is a new omega 3 oil supplement that can help women with PMS to simply and naturally, reduce the severity of their monthly symptoms.

How can Cleanmarine Krill Oil help alleviate the symptoms of PMS?

Krill oil provides two omega-3 essential fatty acids, (EPA eicosapentaenoic acid and DHA docosahexaenoic acid). High levels of these omega-3 fatty acids can help the body to regulate hormonal imbalances and can effectively ‘switch off’ premenstrual pain, inflammation, bloating, breast pain, headaches, anxiety, nervousness, depression and cravings

I will be taking them for  the next month so make sure you visit August’s post to see how I get on with them. I have my fingers firmly crossed 😉

I had a Costa date with my oldest yesterday and we tried our their new Summer menu! Lero had a watermelon and strawberry cooler and I had a Belgian chocolate creamy cooler! They were absolutely gorgeous and very refreshing… perfect for the current heatwave we are having!

I never try new things usually when I go to Costa, I always have a Latte but I’m really pleased that I tried something different. Next time I go I’m going to give the blackberry & raspberry fruit cooler a try! It sounds delicious.


Make sure you check out the new menu next time you are in Costa, you won’t be disappointed!


What I’ve been watching…

Pride and Prejudice (Special Edition) [DVD] [1995]

Pride & Prejudice Film [2005]

Sense & Sensibility : Complete BBC Series [2008] [DVD]

I loved the Pride & Prejudice BBC series but the film was a real let down to be honest, my other half agreed with this too as he really enjoyed the BBC series. I watched Sense and Sensibility on my own and really enjoyed that too! You can find both of the BBC series on Netflix which I was very happy about! I’m just so in love with Netflix right now and am addicted to many series on there too. I am loving the new series of Orange is the New Black, Pretty Little Liars, Rita and just started The L Word too! I just love being able to always have something to watch – perfect when I am babysitting for friends, I just take my Macbook and fire up Netflix 🙂

What I’ve been reading…

I’m struggling with reading at the moment, I started off this year doing really well but I haven’t read in a few weeks now. I managed to read my book club book whilst I was on holiday, that was How I Lost You by Jenny Blackhurst and I really enjoyed that then I got half way through Pride and Prejudice on the Kindle and loved it so much I stopped to watch the TV Series and the film and haven’t picked it back up since. I will make it my goal to finish it this week though and get started on something else. I really need to catch up if I want to complete my 52 books project this year 😉

Well that’s all for this month, don’t forget to contact me soon if you have a product that you would like to see in August’s edition!

    I want to try the Krill oil, have heard its great for PMS and mine is terrible at the moment

  • Reply oana79 July 3, 2015 at 7:50 am

    Loads of beautiful products, loving the sunflower Yankee candle! I have had krill oil supplements before and I found them gentle on the gut yet very effective. Hope you will see the benefits too. I also take Calcium for heavy periods as a three-month treatment, it has helped enormously.xx

    Yankee candles look and sound so nice. We love having different scents in our house, but can’t really have candles because one of our cats likes to knock everything over. We have to make do with air fresheners instead.

  • Reply Kate Thompson July 1, 2015 at 12:57 pm

    I love Costa iced coffee (not the creamy ones though!) and was hoping to sneak one in tomorrow en route home from the early school run. I have poorly kiddies though so it’s not looking hopeful!

    I’m all for the candles too – and for having some time to read a good book….

  • Reply Michelle July 1, 2015 at 11:01 am

    I love Yankee Candles! I’ve got loads of them in all different scents. They’re pricey, but so worth it! x
