Leeshcraft of London, Candle Review.

This post Contains ad links.    
"Magical scents inspired by nature and nostalgia" Leeshcraft of London.



I have been asked to review one of Leeshcraft of London fabulous candle's,  I  wanted to open the box which arrived in the post with out looking at any of the stunning paperwork, that came with the candle or read any information about it, so I could give an honest review about any product that I review on my blog. The candle I was asked to review was Woodland Mist from their Botanic Collection.
  When I first opened  the box I could smell a lovely classic smell of white lilies, then followed a subtle hint of Rosemary then Heather, which became stronger with a little time so I would say the smell of Lilies started to merge with the other two smells.
  The packaging alone stands out superbly, the colours are bright but natural, keeping with the theme.




The candle has oakmoss in it which is an essential oil, which to be honest I had never heard of  before, but I enjoyed the…

Why I Hate Love Island.

I know this will not be  popular  with a lot of the  British public, but I hate ITV1's  Love Island, there I have said it. Am I the only one?  I feel on a daily basis the only one.   Last Summer this show, about lovely young men and women on an holiday island  was on and all my  female friends and some of my  family were watching it, they were fascinated, next to the photocopier they were fascinated, going out for drinks with my girlfriends all I could hear was he fancies her she snogged him, so I felt like an absolute freak when I suddenly shouted to out "I have never seen it", all heads turned and looked at me in amazement, eyes wide and mouths open, one or two heads shaking in amazement, "what" one particular friend   cried out "never?".  They were horrified I felt like I wanted the ground to swallow me up whole.
   So I must confess that night I went home put on Youtube typed in Love Island and there were lots of lots of older clips I saw one tha…

Guest Post, How To Get Free Beauty Products by Hannah at Frugal Bride To Be.

Hi! I’m Hannah and I blog about saving money and living frugally over at https://frugalbridetobe.wordpress.com I am currently saving up for our house and wedding so every penny that I can save helps!

Beauty products are one of those things that most of us will use on a daily basis, be it shampoo, toothpaste, makeup or skin care. None of these are exactly cheap and some of them really can set you back a small fortune!

The latest Game of Thrones palette by Urban Decay for example, is still on sale for over £40 which is just crazy talk to me….

Now, what if told you that you could actually get your hands on quite a few beauty products without having to spend a penny? Yes, you read that right – you can get products for FREE

But how…?


There are absolutely loads of places that you can get free beauty products if you know where to look and aren’t afraid to speak to a few people. Some of these you can even do without leaving your sofa as well!

Now, I’m not saying you’re going to get full size…

Llangollen International Festival

Sponsored  Post with links.

Hi all, I have some very exciting news to tell you all, I have been asked to write a pre-review of a fantastic blogging opportunity. I was so excited when I was chosen. I have always wanted to go to this ever since I was little and have never been.

FAMILY FRIENDLY INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL FOR ALL.  It is a weeks long family friendly celebration which is full of music and dance and culture at the Llangollen Eisteddfod, I was born and have  grown up in North Wales and the Eisteddfod has been a huge part of my life, I have always known that the  people of the area as a child look forward to the festival every year, and it is part of Welsh culture and beyond. The very first festival was in June 1947 listed as a celebration of peace and harmony, and they are right, the whole festival is about music dance  and culture, there will be over 5,000 international performances from all over the world to entertain visitors to the beautiful and serene town of Llangollen, No…

Are you Mutton Dressed as Lamb?

Do you feel old I don't I am a 45 going 16 in my head but  I often worry if I dress to young, I never have been a provocative dresser, even in my teenage years and twenty's,  I was always worried that my skirt's were to short or my top was to low, it is such a shame I was so self conscious because now I am older I do wish I let a little bit more hang out so to speak.  I used to look in the mirror and wonder do I look like a slag in this sorry to be so crude reader's but that's what I was saying in  my head, I hated my legs I thought they were chubby. pasty white and short, who would want to see them, I don't even want to see them, so I covered up my pasty pins up and put them away for a later date.  It took me till my mid twenty's  to get my legs out, when I dared to wear a short skirt on a night out and my Aunt said"you've got lovely legs why have you been hiding them all these years get them out Girl"                                      …

My Obsession with Red Shoes.

I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity.                                         Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them.                                         I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up…
