Gifting - Aquill Aromatherapy candle Juniper berry and Cedarwood



Aquill Aromatherapy candle Juniper berry and Cedarwood

You know what makes a great Christmas gift? yep you guessed it a scented candle, a scented candle is a great choice for a couple gift, or maybe your brothers girlfriend, someone you do not know loads about but want to treat to a nice present, and of course a candle lover like myself, I am always happy with a candle as a gift.

What's so nice about the Aquill candles, is how stylish they look, these are aromatherapy candles hand poured into mouth blown 100% recycled glass jars, and can even be refilled once you have burnt the candle at a discounted rate, making these candles not only an attractive present but pretty "green" to. The candle comes beautifully packaged in the box shown, which again makes it perfect for gifting.

I have the Juniper Berry and Cedarwood* scent, this is calming scent with woody undertones, a very fresh smell that reminds me of walks outdoors,which makes it a perfect winter scent. It's not too sweet or zesty making it a safe choice for a gift as I think it's a scent most people would enjoy. The scent throw is really good and you can still smell it in the room long after you have blown it out, but not in an overpowering way. I have the 100g size and this has a burning time of 16 hours which makes this little candle really long lasting.

I always think it looks so thoughtful to buy someone a handmade gift rather than something mass produced, and of course it's great for the smaller business to.

If you are still on the hunt for gifts I recommend checking out this brand, they offer a few different scents to, so you should be able to find a scent to fit the recipient's taste.

So when I spotted this in Sainsbury's, yes Sainsbury's and there was one left in my size, I snapped it up and when it came through the till at only £15 I and my hubby :) were even happier, I love that when that happens!
What I love about this jacket is not just that it's RED but it's warm and it's practical not something I have much of when it comes to outerwear in my wardrobe, because you know fashion!!!

Beauty - Rimmel Moisture renew lipstick in Mayfair Red Lady Review


Rimmel Moisture renew lipstick in Mayfair Red Lady Review

Most of the year, I plod along wearing the same three nude lipsticks, but it's Christmas time and I'm feeling a bit extra, I have red lipsticks but not one that I just think yep, this is my red that is until I popped in my local Superdrug to get an Eyebrow pencil, and thanks to their offers and marketing ploys, I came out with two lipsticks and a mascara as well as the eyebrow pencil. One of the lipsticks being this Rimmel Moisture Renew in the shade Mayfair Red Lady. I swatched this and just new it was coming home with me, I own nothing like this lipstick, it is a really really statement glossy orange toned red. When it comes to reds I normally go matte but I love the finish of this lipstick and it feels so moisterising, literally like a lip balm not a lipstick.

 It Not being a matte lipstick does mean it's not gonna be as long wearing, but this does survive a few coffees before it needs touching up, tending to wear on the inside of my lips more than the outside so you can get away without keep topping it up for a while.
For me this is not a problem as I just love the shade and how comfortable it is to wear, and let's not forget this is a Rimmel lipstick costing £6.49, not a high end expensive brand.
Personally I don't wear bold lipsticks enough to warrant paying a lot for one, and why bother when they are as gorgeous as this.

Are you an avid red lipstick wearer or just at Christmas like me?

You have probably noticed that Red is a massive trend for the season, and I for one am fully embracing this, cause come on, red is festive AF, what better way to get into the Christmas spirit then by adding a touch of red to your winter outfits. 
So I have compiled a little selection of red pieces from the highstreet, because I am good like that!

And I am aware I have said Red a lot in that paragraph, but what you gonna do......

Red is one of those trends everyone can get involved in, I think all skintones and hair colours suit red, and you can add as little or as much to an outfit as you like, if you are a little scared of colour why not trying in some red accessories like a bag, or earrings or if you are ready to go all out what about a red coat or a pair of statement boots.

I absolutely loved putting this outfit together and I adore the red beret, such a small piece has really amped up this simple outfit and took it to a new level.

Will you be adding red to your winter wardrobe?
