If you’re anything like me, you love nothing more than curling up on the sofa and watching a movie after a long day. Especially when you’ve got a candle on the go.

It’s not getting any warmer in England, in fact, it’s getting colder! With that in mind, I’ve been trying a couple of candles out that help create the perfect warming ambiance.


PaddyWax Apothecary Amber & Smoke

Firstly, can we just note how incredible these candles look? I’m a sucker for an apothecary design. This candle has up to 50 hours burn time, and the soy wax blend ensures the fragrance is long lasting. The Amber & Smoke scent is warm, rich and luxurious. It’s quite musky, and almost reminds me of honey and takes me back to times of bonfires. When I lit this candle, the scent instantly filled the room.

Wax Lyrical Nordic Spruce

This woody candle is possibly one of my favourites. It’s crisp, clean and has a fresh pine scent. It reminds me of the scent of Christmas trees, which we all love. For me, the scent is incredibly relaxing so it’s perfect after a long day. I can really smell the bergamot in this, which is a scent I really adore. The candle is inspired by Scandinavia, and let’s face it, there’s nothing wrong with brining a bit of Scandi into your home. For me, the scent didn’t travel that much, so I’d recommend trying this in a small space because it’s seriously stunning.

FatFace Camomile & Apple

This candle from FatFace is probably the cleanest smelling of them all. But for some reason, it reminds me of holidays! What better way to spend your evening relaxing than reminiscing about your last vacation. The scent of camomile is subtle, and when it’s blended with the apple is really does create a delicate scent. It burns for aorund 40 hours, and the scent really does fill a room. It’s designed to soothe and calm, so light this candle, pop on a film, and unwind.

If I had to pick a favourite, it would have to be the PaddyWax Amber & Smoke, but it’s a close one! If you like deep, musky scents, this is the one for you.

Are you on the lookout for a new iPhone case? If you want to know my review of the Snakehive London Vintage iPhone case, keep reading!


Picking an iPhone case isn’t an easy task – well, at least not for me. I find that they’re either really expensive, or shocking quality. After I’ve spent so much money on a phone, the last thing I want to do is dress it in a tacky piece of plastic. I’ve been using the Snakehive London Vintage Two Tone Leather Wallet and I’m definitely impressed.

A Little Bit About Snakehive London

Snakehive London was founded in 2009, with the aim to provide high quality phone accessories and cases, at a market-competitive price. The first phone cases became available in 2011, after the website was set up. It all picked up in 2015, when the collection expanded to include the range we see today. High quality leather and wooden cases became available, and thankfully, you can get them really easily!

What’re My Thoughts On The Vintage Two Tone Leather Wallet?

I’ve never really used an iPhone Wallet before. Being completely honest, I like my phone to be visible because I’m a fan of the design. With that being said, I think I’m a convert! The Snakehive Vintage Two Tone Leather Wallet is super high quality, and looks premium. The portion of the case that holds the phone is a sturdy plastic and there’s a section on the side for holding cards.

If you’re anything like me, you hate having to carry a wallet around. I find it too bulky, and don’t like how they feel in my pocket. Thankfully, this phone case allows me to carry my main cards around with me and I keep the rest of them in my wallet. They provide cases for a number of phones, which is great.

I’d honestly recommend you try out the cases if you’re looking for a sleek and stylish upgrade to your existing phone, at a reasonable price. The case I got retails at £18.95, which is super affordable.

I recently tried out Blossoming Gifts. Want to see my review? Keep reading!


There’s one thing in life that always looks great in the home, and also makes incredible gifts. Wondering what it is? I’m sure the title has given it away, but if it hasn’t, I’m talking about flowers!

I find it ridiculously difficult to buy flowers. Most of the stalls around Manchester close before I have a chance to get there, so I find it easier to turn to the internet. Thankfully, Blossoming Gifts have a solution to my problems.

Who Are Blossoming Gifts?

Blossoming Gifts are online providers of special gifts. From flowers, to plants, even the odd plush toy, chocolates and jewellery. It’s the perfect one-stop-shop for a gift for any occasion. One thing I’m the most impressed with is that they offer next day delivery across most of the UK.

If like me, you’re always forgetting to buy gifts, this is the site for you. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, why not treat your Mum to a lovely bouquet of flowers? I know she’ll appreciate it. They even offer hampers and wine, which is another winning point for me!

What Did I Think Of Blossoming Gifts?

I’ll admit something here – I’m actually not a massive fan of flowers. I find they always smell a bit too intense for me, and with my hay fever, it doesn’t always end well. I was super impressed to find that Blossoming Gifts also offer a selection of indoor plants. If there’s something I can’t get enough of, it’s cactus and succulents. I got the Trio of Succulents, which came in beautiful white glass pots.

What’s even better is that with the turn around time Blossoming Gifts offer, I had these plants before I even had time to process it! They got delivered the day after, completely fresh and healthy, with enough packing to ensure the plants didn’t get damaged.

I know for a fact I’m going to use Blossoming Gifts again. Whether it’s for Mother’s Day, a birthday, or another special occasion. The selection of bouquets is incredible and there’ll be one fit for any occasion.
