I was scrolling thru Instagram on Friday night and spotted Chrissiescorner had posted about a cute little candle she had brought from Sainsbury’s.

I popped in to my local Sainsbury’s on Saturday morning as I was over that way to see if we had the same. I was in luck and we had some in, there 5 scents and after smelling all 5 I fell in πŸ’Ÿ with 3, so I brought 2 Vanilla & Musk, 1 Lavender & Geranium and 1 Passion Flower & Mango.

I thought after smelling the Lavender one this would be ideal for my bedroom, I thought I could burn it an hour before bed and made be help me get a better nights sleep? 😴

Well I can only try right?

The candles are priced at Β£1.50 each and are about 8cms high. I managed to bag 4 candles for Β£3.50 as I had Β£2.50 worth to spend thanks to my nectar points on my card.

So this would have to be my best weekend buy πŸ’πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ.

Why not checkout Chrissie’s Instagram?

Lots of Love




Afternoon All

I’ve previously did a post on 12 books I’m aiming to read this year, well I’ve just added another 9 to it 😬😯.

I have a Books & DVD list on amazon with all the ones I want, and I’ve managed to bag 5 books off my list for under a fiver! All thanks to tips from one of my lovely followers on Twitter, she asked if I’d thought of charity shops for buying books and to be honest I hadn’t shocking I know! Right I’m off to crack on with some reading and finish off the book I’m reading at the moment ‘A Year of Taking Chances’ by Lucy Diamond…

Hope your all having a great Weekend with what ever your up too πŸ’Ÿ

Lots of Love


Happy New Years

Good Morning!

How is it 2018!? Where did 2017 go??

What’s on your ‘To Do List’, Achievements or Resolutions for 2018? I’d love to know what your all aiming for??

I’m going for Achievements over Resolutions this year, as I can say I don’t stick to Resolutions so I’ve got my list, 11 so far and no doubt more will be added!

Well I hope you’ve all had a great New Year & there isn’t too many sore heads this Monday morning??

12 Books in 12 Months

I do enjoy a good book, but I go thru phases. I can read for a good few months and then I’ll stop reading and won’t pick a book up for months 😳.

From 1st Jan 2018 that is stopping! I have selected 12 books, shown below.

More reading πŸ“š is one thing which is on my Achievement list, so I’m kick starting tomorrow!

I’ll also do a 3 month review, on how I’m getting on and what books I’ve read and my overall review.

I’ve picked a varied selection, including one of my childhood favourites ‘The Folk of the Faraway Tree’ I loved reading this book as a young girl. I’m hoping that when I get round to reading it, it’s going to be just how it was all those years ago ☺️.

I have also have a Books wanted list on my notes on my phone where I jot down ones that I see or read reviews on, so if you have any suggestions or recommendations on books that I should read then drop me a comment as I’d love to hear them, or your thoughts on my selection?

Lots of Love

OOTD β€’ 23rd September 2017

Can’t believe its been a week since my birthday, this time last week Cheryl & I were having brunch at Vinoteca, near Kings Cross.

I didn’t know what to wear, as the weather on Friday was lovely in Peterborough and London but looking at the weather for Sat 23rd, it said it would be sunny and cloudy being 20c, so I was going to layer up but then I didn’t want to take a big bag or be carrying anything so I opted for lightweight trousers, bodysuit, leather jacket, lightweight scarf and flat leopard print shoes.

All what I am wearing apart from the scarf and bag are from New Look I love this look, and I felt confident and comfortable as over the last year I have lost over 3 stone so I wanted to show off my new figure! I wanted to go for a Smart Casual look, which I think I pulled off.

I think the scarf and Micheal Kors bag just finish the outfit off, its quite a simple but effective look.  This definatly a look I would wear again, as I have these trousers in black and a grey and black speckle effect.  They also do them in  a Burgundy which I am hoping to get also.

Hope you have enjoyed this post 😊

Lots of Love
