Yankee Candle

I am a massive Yankee Candle fan and I think this Lake Sunset jar is my absolute favourite so far! It is currently fragrance of the month so you can get a whopping 25% off making this large jar an absolute bargain at £16.49 instead of £21.99! I’ve ordered myself some smaller jars and the tea-lights too with my birthday money as I don’t ever want to stop smelling this one!

The lovely people at Elastoplast sent me one of their vintage tins along with some of their plasters. I love having this tin in my handbag full of plasters ready for one of the kids when they take a tumble, it is so handy. Of course Bugs absolutely loves the Cars plasters and finds any little excuse to have a plaster on now 😉



I bought this gorgeous INDIKIDUAL Raglan Eyes Top from the lovely Jenny at Kyna Boutique a few weeks ago and I am so happy with it, I’ve bought INDIKIDUAL leggings before but never had any tops and this is just lovely; Bugs looks adorable in it. I haven’t yet got round to taking a photo of him in it but wanted to share it with you and the fact that Jenny is always so lovely & helpful and I could not recommend Kyna Boutique highly enough!



My other half bought me a Mophie Juice Pack Air for my iPhone 5s on my birthday as I was always moaning about my battery running out. I totally LOVE my Mophie, it gives me an extra 80% charge so I don’t have to worry about running out of battery anymore 🙂


Apple Watch

I was rather spoilt for my birthday this year as my other half also bought me this gorgeous Apple Watch which I am totally in love with. It’s amazing to have a watch, I’ve not had one for years and was always digging around in my handbag for the time but now I don’t have to; I have the time, my texts, Twitter, Instagram, calls, emails and everything else I might need right there on my wrist!!! I’m going to treat myself to a gorgeous new strap soon too! Such a lucky girl 😉



Lero bought me this Secret Garden colouring book for my birthday and I have just loved spending time colouring it in. It really does calm and relax me, it takes me ages though but I really love doing it.

What I’ve Been Watching

I noticed that The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button had a good score on IMDB so not knowing anything about it me and my other half settled down to watch it. OMG we sobbed and sobbed. It is a truly wonderful film but it totally ripped my heart out! Watch it if you haven’t already!

We also watched The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 because I noticed they were both on Netflix and we hadn’t already watched them. While I wouldn’t say they were amazing I did really enjoy watching them and am now eager for last film to come out.

My Netflix addiction this month has been Merlin, at every single opportunity I have watch an episode and ashamed to say I have watched the whole 5 series in a rather small amount of time! Now I’m at a loss and have no idea what to watch so if you have any recommendations please leave me a comment 🙂

What I’ve Been Reading

I read Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger while I was on holiday, I did love the idea of the story, it’s a really easy read and it kept me wanting to keep reading but I found it pretty disappointing overall.  I have just started The Sunrise by Victoria Hislop which is our book club book this month, it’s not something I would normally pick up but so far so good! I’ll let you know how I get on with that one next month and if you have any recommendations again please leave me a comment 🙂 I’m not doing that well with my 52 books challenge but far better than the grand total of 2 I read last 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 my October or Christmas edition!

  • Reply happyhomebird September 25, 2015 at 12:03 pm

    Super items; I love Yankee Candles and have just bought Halloween ones so looking forward to lighting them during October. Love, Love , Love Benjamin Button – it falls into the category of film I adore, like the Green Mile etc. Going to look up those two books as I’m on a massive novel reading session at the moment.

    The Morphie sounds fantastic! I love my iPhone, but despise the low battery life, so this seems like a nifty little gadget!

  • Reply Joanne Dewberry September 25, 2015 at 11:25 am

    I need to get me some colouring books! I feel like I’m missing out! I know though I’d have to buy my own pens I couldn’t share with the kids!

  • Reply Kara September 25, 2015 at 8:29 am

    My mophie is a god send. I can’t make up my mind if I want an apple watch or not

    I’ve just been sent some candles to review but I am loving the look of that Yankee Candle. I’m going to try and smell it in town tomorrow and I’ll probably end up buying it! You can never have too many!

    It is funny how we are all so different as I hated that film so much! 3 hours I will never get back haha! Why did he have to become an actual baby? He could have just had baby mannerisms and brilliant skin but to shrink? Weird!! Loving that batter pack though- am so looking in to that for Mr F! x

  • Reply Daniella September 24, 2015 at 12:48 pm

    I love Lake Sunset, it has such a beautiful scent and makes me imagine what the smell must be like if you’re sitting on the balcony of a beach house.
