Hi everybody, I hope you are all well and that life is good!
I’m so sorry that it’s been so long since I last posted, time has just slipped away from me. I have had words with myself and I promise to do better in future.
So much has been happening lately; from Hurricane Irma, to vacationing in Colorado; life has been crazy busy here. But I’m back, and I have so much good stuff planned to post.
But first, I wanted to share with you some of the goodies that I’ve hauled recently. It was my birthday last week and I was gifted so many lovely things that I can’t wait to share them with you. Also, I’m sharing goodies that I’ve recently treated myself to, as I know you’ll be interested, as many are bookish themed.
So lets get right to it shall we. I’ll link as many as I can, so you can treat yourself too, if you like them.
So first off, I want to share with you two gorgeous new planners that my husband bought me. These were from Kikki.K I got to choose though. I chose the large lemon planner for all my home organization files. This can be left on my desktop and can be referred to by either of us, when we want to check up on home or work appointments. This one here is perfect, and it was also in the sale. He even had my initials monogrammed on the cover
The baby blue one is also gorgeous, and has a fine gold polka dot pattern all over it. Find it HERE.
I’ll be able to pop this one in my purse and carry it around with me, and I can add appointments and update throughout the day, and then I can sync it with my large planner every evening (the old fashioned way).I do have planner apps too but I just love stationary and the feel of real paper and decorative accessories. It’s kind of like reading real books versus e book readers. It’s just a preference of mine.
The accessories that I chose are the planner zip-lock decorated pockets, pastel bull dog style clips for adding any magazine clippings that I want to save. I love the page holder notes, and I added an Inspiration kit to add interest to the pages and to keep me motivated! Finally I purchased so bullet planner stencils and Huhuhero fine liner pens from Amazon. So I’m totally set up!
I can’t wait to start playing with these.
So, moving on to candles now. Now my favorite upmarket candles are most definitely those from Unicorn Manor If ever I want to truly indulge myself, I head right over to Emi’s store and pick a new candle. But luckily for me, Hubby gave me some birthday money to choose a whole bunch of candles for my birthday, so I was in candle heaven!
I mean just LOOK at all this loveliness! #sigh
Let me show you some close ups. So first of all I took advantage of Emi’s offer to make a custom candle for me. I requested a candle to promote healing as I’m sick right now and waiting on surgery, so I hope to light it every day after my surgery to encourage fast healing. So Emi created this one for me.
It’s stunning and smells delicious. She created a tailored crystal candle with her signature rose scent (like her love spell candles) infused with certified organic pink and red roses, certified organic Aussie grown lavender, cherry blossom, homegrown bay leaf, Rose Quartz and magic. If only you could smell it!
Now as I have quite a sweet tooth, I also feel madly involve with her new limited edition candles in conjunction with Daisy’s milk bar. Wait until you see these!
First we have the salted caramel candle which is infused with tiger’s eye crumble, rose and of course, her magic. It totally blows me away. It smells good enough to eat. Definitely a beautiful caramel aroma.
Next I had to order this adorable candle which is based on a childhood favorite cereal, fruit Loops This one is infused with amethyst crumble, rose and magic. This smells really sweet, and exactly like candy.
The next one just has to be my favorite of all as it’s raspberry and I just LOVE raspberries. Infused with rose quartz crumble, rose and Magic!
Finally I bought a Love spell candle, because I love it. this has the rose quartz, rose magic, and also jasmine. I purchase this one in the wax melts version too.
If you are on a budget, these wax melts are perfect for treating yourself without feeling guilty afterwards. And if you want to REALLY indulge yourself, then light these beautiful candles around your bath and add some of this magical Bath crumble into your bath. This is infused with sew almond oil, rose absolute, cerfified organic rose, lavender, jasmine, rose quartz and of course MAGIC. Perfect for pampering. I can’t wait.
So that’s it for part one of my birthday haul. I’ll continue with part two next week and share with you some more of my gorgeous girly gifts. I hope you’ve enjoyed sharing in my fun. Have a super week, lots of love, Sally x
