Beautiful Home Pieces with Feather & Black

“Homeware is my weakness.”

Said by every blogger on the planet.

We can’t help it. We can’t help buying it. They make great props.

Especially when the products are long lasting, like the ones from Feather & Black.

When their lovely PR team got in touch and asked if I’d like to review some of their pieces, I took a look on their website and was instantly in love with pretty much every single item.

And then they said I could choose what I wanted.

Is this real life? Is this a fantasy?

10 points to Gryffindor if you can name that song.

Completing a Room with Daisy Maison

Stags are one of my favourite animals.

My blog name kinda gives that away.

I’ve wanted a piece of artwork in my bedroom for quite some time, but I wasn’t 100% sure what I wanted so when I spotted a Daisy Maison stall at a home show in Manchester towards the end of last year, I knew I’d found the perfect piece.

Spruce up your garden this Spring with Fishpools

Spring is around the corner.

I can already feel it in the air.

The mornings + evenings are lighter, the daffodils are popping up everywhere and we can finally get to work on the garden.

Over the Winter, the garden has been neglected simply because it’s too cold to do anything and due to the frost (thankfully we didn’t get any snow), no flowers were able to bloom.

I’ve got a few simple steps on how you can spruce up your garden this Spring…

Having Some Me Time with Help Me Organics

If I asked you what ‘me time’ meant, what would you say?

In my opinion, it’s doing something which makes you content.

When the team at Help Me Organics got in touch at the beginning of the month and asked if I’d like to review one of their candles, I said yes.

I mean, I do have a draw in my bedside table dedicated to candles..

The Best Christmas Candle

Happy Friday!

The second Autumn hits, candles and fairy lights become the best part of the evening. We all love being cosy, we’re all very Hygge..

Every Christmas, I burn the same Yankee Candle and it is truly delicious. I desperately need to purchase a large jar early next year as it sells out SO quickly. Note to self: get one in January.

Yup, it’s Christmas Cookie aka. the best candle to burn in December. In terms of the scent, it’s rich, buttery and basically smells of sugar cookies. The best thing about the candle is that once you blow it out, the scent is still very strong and covers all of the room for a good hour.

Which is your favourite Christmas candle?

Getting Personalised With M&S

Hello you lovely bunch,

With Autumn being one of the best times of the year (as well as Winter, duh!), there tends to be a lot more candle purchasing than usual. Not only do they look rather cosy along fairy lights but they also smell beautiful as well.


Nine times out of ten, I will have two vanilla tea lights burning on my windowsill as well as something fruity on my bedside table. If you read about the Citrus Fruit & Ginger candle from Tesco, you will know that I’m enjoying the zingy scents at the moment. They give off quite a powerful scent which is always a bonus.


There is something quite special about having a candle with your initial on. Marks and Spencer have some incredible scents but the Grapefruit & Ginger one won by a long shot.


When the label states that the fragrance will enhance any room, it means it. I kept this in the hallway for a couple of hours and when my parents arrived home, they noted that it smelt incredible.

How on earth can a candle be so good looking? I’m so in love with it.

Fresh Scents With Zoella Lifestyle

Hello you lovely lot,

I cannot tell you how long I have wanted this Zoella Lifestyle candle for. Every Boots and Superdrug I have stepped foot in have been sold out and I’ve been told by sales assistants to “order online,” but with a little patience I finally managed to get my hands on Daisy Pickings from the Liverpool One Superdrug. The candles are £10 each and if you fancy, you can pick up a matching room diffuser for £12.


We need to have a chat about the packaging because… well, just look at it. I don’t think I’ve ever bought a candle which comes in its own little box before so props to Zoe for adding something a little extra. Depending on the candle you’ve purchased, the inside matches the name – cute, right?


The candle itself is quite simple and with the elegant writing, it’s perfect to place on your bedside table or fireplace for a crisp Sunday morning while you watch cooking shows (we all do this, right?). The smell of the candle is very fresh and is definitely more of a Spring scent rather than an Autumn/Winter one so I’m definitely saving this to burn in early 2017 after my operation.zoella4

Have you bought anything from the Zoella Lifestyle range? Let me know.
