Blogmas Day 15 // Winter Candle Haul

Candles are such a must for Autumn/Winter, there’s nothing better than a candle illuminating the room. I love them to be in a position where you can see the light flickering, it brings some warmth to the room, even when it’s freezing outside. Last year for Blogmas, I shared my favourite Scentsy Wax Melts, this year I wanted to share my candle collection.

I am a massive fan of candles, they’re one of my favourite things, at the moment I have got just a small collection of candles…

Bedtime Beauty Routine

There is that one thing that we all need that makes us less miserable! That would be sleep, I know if I don’t have a good nights sleep, you don’t want to mess with me in the morning. For me, I do find it hard to get to sleep, so there are a couple of things I do to help me wind down and relax for the evening.

At the moment I am pretty stressed with the move, so I thought now would be a great opportunity to share with you my Bedtime Beauty Routine! The easiest way I felt to share with you my routine, would be to go through step by step my evening. Let’s begin with;

Artemis & Xena February 2017

Subscription Boxes are becoming more popular amongst everyone, as no matter what your interests are, I guarantee there will be a box out there for you. As you know, I am subscribed to Infinity Crates, a crate filled with entertainment goodness. I love receiving this every month, as I never know what I’m going to receive until I open it up.

I came across a new Subscription Box, Artemis & Xena, I immediately fell in love as I love the concept of the box. Ani founded Artemis & Xena after struggling with her mental well-being as a teenager and during the first year of University. A change of thinking and lifestyle helped her to get through her difficulties, therefore she wants to help other women who may be facing difficulties too using what helped her.

Blogmas Day 15 // Scentsy Christmas Haul

When it starts getting colder, I love nothing but lighting candles in my room for the warmth and the smell of Winter/Christmas. Last year, I was introduced to Scentsy, a wickless candle that when warmed, releases fragrance into the air. Since then I have been addicted to their warmer as there is no wick to light.

They have such a massive range of melts, all different kinds of smells for your home. I love them even more when they bring out their seasonal ranges. With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I would show you my favourite melts from them for this festive time.

Holland & Barrett Beauty Kitchen

As some of you may know, I attended the launch of Holland & Barrett More in Plymouth last week. Nearly half of their store was dedicated to the Beauty Kitchen, a new concept to allow customers to make their own beauty products. They have kits to ‘make your own’ lip balms and bath bombs and even a Make Your Own Body Scrub station. It’s really cool having these products as you can personalise them to suit your skin type.

The body scrub station is really cleaver as there’s just three simple steps to produce your personalised scrub. You can add anything you wish to the scrub and the different ingredients help with different things. So you really can personalise it to yourself. It’s a good idea as everyone has different skin types. It’s a really effective way of creating your own scrub, something that you can be proud of.

Beauty Kitchen

For the Grand Opening they had people on hand to give you a taster treatment with the scrub. There were different body scrubs available to try, the one I tried was Love Me Body Polish. During the treatment the minerals within the scrub were ruff and didn’t feel very nice at all. After it was washed off though, it made my hands feel really soft and had a lovely smell!

Exploring the Beauty Kitchen there were different sections for everything. Everything was cutely displayed, lip balms and lip liners were in a cute wooden display in their sections. With the different shades on display at the front. The descriptions for the different products were displayed on a wooden clipboard keeping in with the theme. With the price list cutely displayed next to the testers.

Make-up

The testers were easy to identify as they were clearly displayed on top, with the sale products underneath. So you don’t have the worry of picking up a tester product, we’ve probably all done that at least once!  Even the nail polish were in a neat order with going in shade order which stands out. Everything seems to be neatly ordered in its own home. Which is nice to see as you immediately know where everything is.

They also have a Scent Station which includes a range of scents from Pina Colada to Pumpkin. There’s a massive display of these where you can pick them up and smell them before you buy. These are small melts that when burnt produce the smell, this is becoming a bigger thing in people’s homes. So it’s nice to see a display like this, especially as it bright and colourful with the different shades.

These are pretty cool as I can see these being popular with homeowners, I love them myself! I might have to pick up a few myself to burn on my Scentsy warmer. They also sell their very own warmers so if you don’t have your own, you can purchase one. Along with the melts, they also sell incenses if the warmers aren’t your cup of tea. They have a range of smells in these aswell.

There’s also a nice selection of bath bombs, a variation of different sizes and colours, depending on the types of ingredients. The bombs are filled with natural ingredient, along with the big ones that have colourful insides, they also have small bombs that are on a Pick n Mix offer. Which is interesting as you can pick up as much of these as you wish and the different variations.

Bath Bombs

For the Grand Opening, they had a bicycle at the front of the store where you could produce your own body scrub. With a little help from Corinne, we were able to produce a small amount of body scrub. Using a little bit of oil and Himalayan Salt we were able to produce the scrub. The mixer was attached to the front wheel and as you peddled it mixed the contents.
