Valentine’s Day Pretties

9 Feb

Hi folks

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner – I received some gorgeous products from Crabtree & Evelyn. You all know that I just love love love Crabtree & Evelyn products.

If you want to impress that special someone – you need to get yourself to your nearest store or get buying online… their gorgeous pretties are sure to impress!

So… what did I receive?

And what did I think…?

Pear & Pink Magnolia Body Soufflé

This is utterly divine!!! Scented body lotions can make me quite nervous as I have sensitive skin on my arms & legs. This is so delicate. It’s stunning. The texture is so super lightweight. If you’re after a beautiful hydrating body lotion that isn’t too heavy or ‘cloggy’… then this is for you! The scent is lovely & soft with a hint fruity freshness. Love love love this lotion. It comes packaged in a lovely box too, which gives it that luxury feel. It’s a fairly big tub, so it should last a good while. Definitely worth every single penny.

Citron & Coriander Body Wash 

Perfect for morning showers as the beautiful zestiness gives you that wide awake feeling. It’s so fresh & zingy… this makes me think of long summery days. This body wash leaves you fruity fresh & soft… it’s definitely not drying like some body washes can be. The whole of this range is stunning – so you could absolutely put a little ‘Zingy Hamper’ together for that special someone. There’s even some jars of Lemon Curd & Beautiful BiscuitsImagine the fabulous gift you could throw together!

Citron & Coriander Soap

Oh I just love a good old traditional bar of soap – I really do. This soap has left my bathroom smelling super fresh. You’d think I had a reed diffuser in there. This is a lovely gentle soap that won’t irritate those hardworking hands. It’ll leave your hands soft & feeling invigorated.

Charming Charms with Charmed Aroma

13 Dec

Hi folks,

The festive-ness is really building now here at Thorne Towers. I received the most gorgeous little package from Charmed Aroma.

Just in case you’re not familiar with Charmed Aroma… here’s a little background; Every Candle is hand poured with a high quality soy wax. Soy wax is known for giving candles a longer & cleaner burn. All of the jewellery is Sterling Silver & if you’re super lucky… you can find a stunning piece of jewellery up to the value of $5,000!!! I mean how exciting!? Shipping is also available in the UK, US, CAD, AUS, FR, GER, IT, SPAIN.

So… let’s get to the good stuff!

These candles are absolutely gorgeous! My candle is ‘Candy Cane‘. The fragrance is stunning. After only been lit for a few minutes, my lounge was filled with the most gorgeous Christmassy sweet scent. The candle itself is also really pretty, in a nice glass jar. It would make such a stunning gift. And the best part… you get a jewel inside! My candle is the ‘ring’ candle. The ring I found inside is really beautiful. As the candle burns & the wax begins to melt, a little parcel will appear. Once it’s totally free of wax – you can scoop it out with a teaspoon etc… then reveal your hidden treasure!

What a stunning treat!

I also received a Candy Cane Bath Bomb. I so enjoyed running myself a relaxing bath & then finding my treat inside.

The Sterling Silver necklace I found inside is so pretty… perfect for wearing with a festive outfit on a night out. The bath bomb smelled so nice & filled the bathroom with a gorgeous scent. The bath bomb was really mild too & left my skin feeling really soft. This would make a fab stocking filler! What an amazing treat to buy someone. You can view my reveal video on my Instagram page.

If you head on over to their website you will find a gorgeous selection of scents & the types of jewellery you can find hidden within. This is not just another scented candle… it’s a candle with a little extra charm hidden within. I love them. Literally the perfect present!

The beautiful candles & bath bombs would make stunning gifts for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Birthday’s etc…

If you head on over to their website & use coupon code: HAYLEY10 you’ll be given 10% off. But please note that this will only be valid for 1 month.

Thanks so much as always for reading!

Festive Fragrances

5 Dec

Hi folks,

Hands up if you’re feeling festive!? We put our tree up at the weekend & I’m just feeling so Christmassy. I love this point of the holidays when you can sit back & relax & just breathe in the festivities.

If you’re looking for any last minute treats for yourself to have around your home to add to the sparkle of Christmas. Or, if you need any last minute stocking fillers & gifts… then look no further than the fabulous Crabtree & Evelyn.

The products I’ve been using to add that festive spritz in the air are:

Both candles come in a stunning metallic glass holder & they come presented in a beautiful decorative box. Imagine how festively fabulous they’d look with a little name tag & then presented on your dining table as place settings? They’d look so gorgeous & they’d be a lovely little gift for your guests. They’d also be perfect for a Secret Santa gift.

The candles can be purchased in the larger size too.

The room spray is fantastic for an instant burst of festive fragrance around the home. I’ve been using this lots. It’s in a lovely elegant glass bottle & again, in a lovely decorative box. You really don’t need to spray a lot to fill the room with a stunning scent. I’ve been using this several times a day & I’ve hardly used any really when you look at the bottle.

We’re going on holiday in just over a week & I’m planning on taking a candle & a room spray with us for our lodge… Eeeeck I can’t wait.

I find that in this day & age – people are so hard to buy for. Everyone tends to have everything already that they need. So gifts should be lovely little treats. This room fragrance would make anyone a stunning little treat.

Crabtree & Evelyn offer a free click & collect service. So you can literally run in store & collect your items. No need to battle the crowds! Or if you’d prefer home delivery, they’re offering free delivery on all orders over £50. So you may as well treat everyone & yourself!

Head to their online Christmas Gift Guide for some inspiration & for gifts starting at just £7!

Ooooooh it’s not long now folks until Christmas… I’m super excited… can you tell!?

Thank so much as usual for reading!

Love & Huggles,
