I got this candle from Homebase and it was only £4. The burning time is 120 hours which is amazing value! It smells amazing and reminds me of Christmas which is obviously a bonus!
Lavender scented spray one of my favourite relaxing products! As you can see I have one from boots that I have had for a while but don't use as much any more. But for my birthday I got 'Ragdale Hall' pillow mist from Marks and Spencer which is great. It comes out in a very fine mist and the scent stays in your room for a long time and would definitely recommend it.
Finally I have a matching product to the spray which is the Temple Balm. This is definitely my favourite of all of them. The packaging is so cute and the balm itself is easy to apply to the temples. The lavender oil scent is very strong and honestly is so relaxing at night!

These are some of my favourite quotes - life really is short and we should all be makIng the most of it and doing what we love everyday with who we love and nit caring about what people think
Reading is fantastic,you get to zone out of your life for a little while and have your life become a fantasy.You can forget about any troubles you may have and dissolve into a book of your choice.
Since a child I have always enjoyed reading,so last year I decided to buy a Kindle.They are perfect for people who travel a lot.Or people like me who just love to read.There ideal to fit in handbags, without taking up the room a giant 500 pager would.
On my Summer Vacation this year I read 5 books on my kindle.There's nothing worse for me than finishing your book on Holiday and not having an extra,with a kindle it didn't matter I just used the wifi and downloaded more.
I am going to share with you a list of my favourite books that I have on my kindle
Abbi Glines - I am obsessed with her books and I think I have read most of her series.There the perfect girly read and I only wish they were made into films.
*the Vincent boys series
* rosemary beach series
*sea breeze series
* existence series
OMG as I am writing this Blog Abbi Glines has added to her website the new cover of the last addition to her sea breeze collection.
If you don't hear from me in a while,I may need help because it means I have been sucked in the 'until the end'.
Lindsey Kelk - These books are great and help you blend into the characters life and the story is so fascinating and unwinding.
* i heart series - new york,Hollywood,Paris ,Vegas,London
*the single girls to do list
*jenny Lopez has a bad week
*what a girl wants
*i heart Christmas which i haven't read and am saving until December
*jenny Lopez saves Christmas which is int released until the 20th November 2014
looks like I will be busy in December but you never know I might get to excited and start in November !
John green - Most people know John Green from his major motion picture film that came out this summer I believe. 'the fault in our stars', i read the book before but i still found it amazing and i did shed a few tears
John Green has a great collection of novels but i only have two
*the fault in our stars
*looking for Alaska which i am currently 20% through
i am slowly adding to my John green collection and hope to read paper towns and BTW i have heard that Cara delevingne who is unbelievably cool and stunning is going to star in the paper towns movie.
shes just so effortless and gorgeous and she doesn't even have to try to be :(
John green is having a fantastic year.
i've only just realized that most of my books on my kindle are by Abbi Glines.i think its time for me to widen my reading selection and go a little further ....................or not i just read what i like.
i dementedly suggest a Kindle to any one who is hesitating towards one,i wouldn't live without mine now !
What are you favorite books ?

I enjoy wearing darker colors in the autumn/winter,my nail polish collection was obviously lacking ! so I decided to buy some more.These were my favourites that I picked out from her collection.
left : Peaches & Cream Right :Penguin Chic
They are both great colors however the peaches & cream isn't really for me,but I just fancied a change.Penguin chic on the other hand I adore and it will probably be my autumn/winter go to polish.
The lid was a little difficult to remove and I found, that the square lid came off and the brush was a little frayed,but was still easy to work with.
The formula is great though,I got an even opaque look with two coats.The nail polish lasted a good 4 days with no top coat before it started to chip.
Overall I am impressed with the Tanya Burr products and will look out for any new additions
Have your tried any Tanya Burr Products ?
