Currently Burning - Summer 2015

I am a huge candle fan, Yankee Candles especially (I take after my Mam.) I have candles burning constantly. Here is a run down of what i have burning currently.
 
In my bedroom i have Yankee Candle Large Jar in French Lavender. I'm not usually a huge fan of Lavender scents but i really like this candle. It's a lovely relaxing fragrance, perfect for the bedroom.
 
 
I also have a Yankee Candle Small Jar in Vanilla Lime. A lovely fresh scent. Vanilla is one of my favourite scents.


In my bathroom i have Yankee Candle Small Jar in Fruit Fusion. A gorgeous scent, perfect for the summer. 
 

In my kitchen i have Yankee Candle Large Jar in Salted Caramel. I am obsessed with this candle! It smells amazing! A very sweet scent.


I also have a Yankee Candle Melt Burner in my kitchen. I change the scent all the time in this. I get Waxbox monthly (review coming soon) so i always have loads of gorgeous scents to burn.

I have two candles in my living room. Both of them are Yankee Candle Large Jars and they are in the scents Shea Butter and Aloe Water. Both of them are very fresh, clean scents.
 
 

What are your favourite candles?

My Top 5 Illamasqua Lipsticks

  I have mentioned a few times before that Illamasqua lipsticks are my absolute favourites. I thought i would share my top 5 with you.
 
From L-R Soaked, Buff, Naked, Corrupt and Sangers

 Soaked
 This is a vibrant orange in a satin finish. It is one of the Glamore lipsticks. My favourite Illamasqua lipstick. This is the perfect reddy orange for me. Goes on smoothly and lasts for ages. I recently wore this on a night out and i didn't need to top my lipstick up the whole night.

Buff
 This is a fudge brown in a satin finish. Another from the Glamore range. I love this one for a night out with a creamy pink gloss over the top. This would be a beautiful nude for darker skintones and one i can only get away with wearing when i am tanned.

Naked
A creamy nude in a satin finish. Another Glamore lipstick. This is a basic nude that i wear a lot. It has slightly peachy undertones.

Corrupt
A warm bright pink in a matt finish. From the original line of lipsticks. Very similar to Immodest but more wearable in my opinion. It is extremely matt and the lips need to be well exfoliated and moisturised before applying.

Sangers 
Described on the website as a blood red but i would say it is a true red. Not orange or blue based. One of the only reds that i feel actually suits me. Would suit any skintone.

Update

 So i have not been the best blogger lately and haven't posted for a while. I have been super busy lately. I'm not going to go to much into it but i am basically in the process of working towards starting my own business. I'm not going to say to much about it just yet as at the moment it won't be fully underway until early next Spring. I am excited to share once i feel ready to though. I have also been super busy decluttering my house, it's crazy the amount of junk i have that i have no need for! I am still doing Slimming World although i kinda fell off the wagon a bit and still haven't reached my stone. I am getting frustrated with it all but i only have my self to blame! 

I'm hoping to blog as often as i can and if i get a quiet day i may just sit and type a few blog posts out so i can at least try and post regularly. It's my birthday next week and then we are off on holiday the week after. It's also the school holidays too, i don't know whether i will get to post much then with having both kids to entertain! 

I hope everyone is doing well and sorry for being such a rubbish blogger.

Thanks for reading

June 30 Day Lip Challenge Day 3

Day 3

Today I decided to go for NARS Honolulu Honey. This is the only NARS lipstick I own. I like it and it's nice but I'm not massively impressed with the formula. The colour I love however.
