Bolsius Aromatic Wax Burner and Melts

Hi all!

It's going to be a tough week after a 4 day weekend but hopefully we're not all feeling too bad going back to work today...maybe you've even got some chocolate left to take to work with you??

Recently we were sent a wax burner and wax melts from Bolsius, L hadn't tried wax melts before so so couldn't wait to test them out and M has had a few but not many so is always excited to try new ones!

Miss Patisserie Citrine Roll On Eau de Toilette

Morning lovelies!

If you are a long time reader of this blog then you will know that I have a huge love for citrus scents - it's in my perfume, my shower products and candles and diffusers in my house. I can't get enough of it!
As soon as I saw the Citrine roll on in Miss Patisserie I knew it had to be mine.



The description for this scent from Miss Patisserie is:

A stroll in the garden on an exotic island is the inspiration behind this scent. Green mango, lotus, incense, calamus and sycamore wood are at the heart of this refreshing eau de toilette

I'd say this was pretty accurate, it's so beautiful and refreshing and takes me to a different place for a few seconds - which is sometimes exactly what I need!

The top notes are green mango and lemon, middle notes of lavender and lotus, and base notes of incense and sycamore wood - for those who need to know all of the details!


This has been perfect for me to put in my handbag for carrying around day to day, and also for taking on work trips where I can put it in my hand luggage and don't have to worry about exceeding the liquid limits.
I picked up the 10ml perfume which costs £6.99, there are also 30ml and 50ml versions too (£8.99 and £11.99)


I love this scent and how easy it is to roll on whenever I need a boost - this isn't just perfume for me to smell nice it's also a scent that gives me a mental boost. It smells like a holiday and takes me away to a paradise island for a few seconds, and everyone needs that right?!

I'd definitely recommend this scent, and I've heard that there is also a scent based on sea salt which I'd love to try as some floral scents can be overwhelming for me and my sensitive nose!

Have you tried one of the scents from Miss Patisserie? Which is your favourite?

Orla Kiely Home Fragrance Collection

Hello there!

I recently wrote a post about how I've just bought my own house - I'm still moving my stuff and still don't have broadband either (let's not even get on that conversation shall we....) but my house is feeling so much more like a home now that it doesn't smell of cleaning or paint.

ORla Kiely have some absolutely amazing products for the home.



Orla Kiely is relaunching her Home Fragrance collection by adding three new fragrances to the three pre-existing ones, each with their own statements prints.
I was kindly sent the Sicilian Lemon Reed Diffuser and Orange Rind Scented Candle for my new home and I can't have been more pleased with them!




The Sicilian Lemon reed diffuser contains a blend of lemon, mint, frankincense and lavender oils, and to be honest it smells fantastic. I'm a huge lover of citrus and mint scents so this is perfect for me.

The bottle is also beautiful, the pattern is beautiful and typical Orla Kiely. Prints with patterns please me due to their symmetry, this is the kind of bottle that you would be happy to put out on display around your house.



I can't comment as to how long the scent lasts for as they have been in my house for a week and still going strong as you would expect. The reed diffuser is in the window in my living room that over looks the garden, I can smell it every time I walk through my living room and especially when the doors are open! 

The Orange Rind Scented Candle is another amazing product. The pattern is again beautiful and symmetrical and the colours match the scent.



The candle contains orange rind, sandalwood, eucalyptus and nutmeg for a warming glow that reminds me of winter time as oranges always do - but it isn't a wintery scent at all.

I love the jar that it comes in as it was so simplistic but also comes with a matching coaster to put your candle on, it's touches like this that make a product what it is.



Here is the candle on my windowsill on the stairs, I'm slowly but surely filling my house with citrus scents and it smells wonderful!

What I love most about these products is that the fragrances are so accurate and not synthetic at all.


The Sicilian Lemon Reed Diffuser is 200ml and costs £32, the Orange Rind Scented Candle is 200g and costs £25.
I always think it pays to buy a more expensive home fragrance product, you cannot beat a genuine scent and these are really great.

Do you like Orla Kiely patterns? What's your favourite scent?

Lush Mother's Day and Spring Event

Hi there!

Last Monday we were lucky enough to be invited to a Lush blogger event, we always love attending these as they're a fun way to get to know all of the products and play around with them, as well as meeting lots of other bloggers too as there is always a big group of us!

The store is always such a happy and colourful place, its a pleasure to visit.



The latest range of Spring and Mother's Day themed products are so beautiful - the golden eggs and the carrots are so adorable! Who isn't drawn to something so glittery as the Golden Egg??


L was massively surprised that she really loved the smell of the Carrot Soap, she would have happily taken home a whole carrot!

The Mother Superior bubble bars were also amazing - how do they make them look so cute with their faces!



We also loved the Instagram frame that they had in store, you just know we were loving this. It's such a great idea for us bloggers who spend so much time on social media!

We also spent some time trying out the new scents that Lush have created, it's so interesting to see how the smell changes on different peoples skin and reacts to create different smells.




We both picked up a few things from the store (as always!) but were lucky enough to come away with a few goodies too.

Yummy Mummy is a gorgeous lilac shower gel, Secret Garden is a super cute bath bomb with flowers in and Golden Egg is just the most gorgeous glittery egg that I can't take my eyes off!



M has already used Secret Garden and here are some quick snaps:





The colours are so pretty! The pink and green are beautiful, you can't go wrong with swirls like these.

Have you been stocking up on the new Spring products from Lush? Which one is your favourite?
