Yankee Candles!

I have discovered a new obsession. Yes, as you can probably tell it is Yankee Candles! Every single one smells amazing! As you know if you are one of my followers i am getting my room done up soon and will definitely be getting a few candle for it! They come in a few different sizes, that means different prices. With the biggest candle costing £16.99 you could call them expensive but they are worth it! They are the most wonderful things ever invented! I thought i would share this with you because they are just so amazing! Here are a few of my favourites! 
This is the black cherry candle

This is the Baby Powder one
It may seem weird but i actually love this smell! I love the smell of talcum powder and babies in general! It smells fresh and clean :)
This is the Creamy Caramel one.

This is one of my all time favourites, it smells so so so good! I literally wanted to eat it when i smelt it in the shop. I can imagine when its burning i'm going to be very hungry!

This is the Soft Blanket one
This is my favourite candle ever! It reminds me of being a child when i used to have my teddies. It smells clean and fresh and it brings back memories. 

I hope you liked the post!

Outfit of the day!

I have seen a few people do an outfit of the day so i thought i would do one! This is what i wore today!

These shorts are from Topshop and they cost £28. I think it is quite a bargain for how many times i wear them! They are my favourite shorts, i love the colour of the denim and i love the frayed edges. The frayed edges make them really effective and give them a vintage look.

This top is also from Topshop and it costs £32.50. It is quite expensive for a top but i really liked it. It goes really well with my shorts because it also has a vintage look and the colours go really well with the shorts. I like the floral pattern on the top and it is really soft. I wore it tucked into my shorts with a brown belt which was £2 from Primark! (Thats a bargin!!!)

These ballet shoes also from Topshop costed £16 and are one of my favourite pairs of shoes! These simple off white ballet shoes went with my outfit because they are plain and my top was quite detailed to they made the outfit simple! These shoes are SO comfortable it is unreal! My feet never ever ever get sore in these!

This hair clip is from Accessorise and was £5. I love this because i like the pattern and also it keeps your hair back so well! I slightly backcombed my hair and wore this clip at the side of my head.

Hope you like it!

My New Room!!

Hey guys, i'm getting my room and bathroom done up soon and i thought i would share some of the things that i'm getting for it! At the moment i have light pink walls in both room and bathroom. I have cream carpet in my bedroom and wooden floor in my bathroom. I have a small light yellow sofa, wooden wardrobe and cream drawers. Im getting my sofa taken out and my wooden wardrobe painted cream and sanded (so it is made to look old). Im getting my walls painted white and i am getting wooden floor. Here are a few things i would like in My room!

This is the wooden floor i am getting. I choose it because it fits with the colour scheme and i like the look of it. I am going for a simple look but with detailed bed sheets etc...

These are the Cath Kidston bedsheets i am getting. I think it will fit with my room because everything else is so plain and this is colourful so it will stand out.

 These are the matching pillow cases to the bedsheets. Im hoping my bed isnt going to look too busy with the same print pillow cases to the bedsheets but we will have to wait and see!

This is a Cath Kidston bathmat for my bathroom. My bathroom will be painted white and everything else will be white so this pink and white polka dot mat will go very well in my bathroom. I like it because it is really cute and i like the colours.

This is the Cath Kidston cherry hand wash. I smelt this in the shop and instantly wanted it in my bathroom!

This is a Cath Kidston Bath hat. I really wanted one of these to keep my hair dry when i'm not washing it and i used to have a Benefit one but i accidentally broke it! I really like the pattern on this hat so this is why i have chose it for my bathroom.

These are the Cath Kidston towels. They are for my bathroom and they match my bathmat. As i said everything else is white so pink and white towels will be very appropriate for my bathroom.

This is a Cath Kidston soap in a little egg. I think this is really cute and i like the colours of the outside of the egg.

This is a clock from Next. I think this is really cute and i like the little butterflies, it is silver so it will go really nicely with the white walls!

These are Cath Kidston Incense sticks. There are a choice of two smells- Wild rose and Bluebell. I have chosen the Bluebell. I really like my room smelling clean and fresh and i think these will do the job :)

As you can see these are Cath Kidston Rose Drawer Liners. I have had drawer liners in the past and they made my clothes smell really nice so i am going to try out these ones!

This is a Cath Kidston laptop case. I have been looking at laptop cases for a while now and this one jumped out at me. It is blue so i think it will go nicely with my blue bedsheets and white walls!

I dont really read that much but while browsing the Urban Outfitters website i came across this book. I think it looks really interesting and i am really into style so i thought i would enjoy reading it!

Thanks for reading!
Im doing another post in a second! :)

5 Items on my wish list right now!

There are a few things that i have seen and really liked so i am going to share them with you. Hope you like it!

1st Item- 
These shorts are from Topshop and they cost £26. They are new in to Topshop and i really like them because i think they look summery and they could be worn with a lot of things. Shorts are my favourite things to wear as they look stylish, go with almost everything and they are comfortable. 

2nd Item-
This is a MAC lipstick, it is from the quite cute collection and costs £10.50. It is in the colour quite cute. I have looked at this lipstick twice in the shop, tried it on and stood in the shop debating weather to buy it or not. I love it personally although it is quite weird because its purple, and its not every day you see people wearing purple lipstick. I have made my mind up after a few days of hard thinking and i am going to buy this even though it isn't an everyday lipstick!

3rd Item-
This is the NARS bronzing powder in the colour Lagoona and it costs £24. I am running out of the bronzer i am using at the moment and in need of a new one! I have been looking at bronzers for a while now, and was told about NARS. I was recommended it by quite a few people so i think i want to try it out. It isn't available to buy where i live so i am taking a chance by guessing the colour Lagoona, i choose it because i am quite pale and it is the lightest colour you can get. 

4th Item-
This dress is from ASOS and comes in at £38. I like it because it is cute, it reminds me of the summer (which i like) and i like the colour and style of it. I especially like the detail on the top of the dress and i like the collar. I like white in general as a colour, it looks clean and fresh and it shows of your summers glow! 

5th Item-
This is the Vera Wang Princess perfume, it is quite expensive at £45 for a 50ml bottle but is way worth it when you smell it. It has a floral, wonderful and generally amazing smell.I was introduced to this perfume by a friend who always talked about how amazing it smelt and one day she took me to smell it. Ever since then every time i see it i keep spraying myself with it! I like the bottle and i also like the colour. Im sure somewhere in the near future this perfume will be on my shelf!

Thank You for reading :) 
Hope you enjoyed it! 
Bye for nowwww

What's in my make-up bag?

For my first post i decided to do a whats in my make up bag because i really like make-up and i like seeing what products everyone else has been using so i thought people might like to see what i'm using :) 

This is my Make-up bag- 

It is Jack Wills Cleveleys Cosmetic Bag and it is £5.I like it because i like jack wills but also it is see through so it is easy to find what you are looking for :) 

First Product- Foundation

It is the Laura Mercier Moisturising foundation and it was £27.50. It is quite pricey but really worth the money. I am in the colour Blush Ivory and i like it because it doesn't go on patchy and it isn't too thick. It also doesn't make me look orange and if applied a few times over blemishes it can act as a concealer.

Second Product-Bronzer

I use the MAC bronzing power, it is £17.50 and i have it in the colour golden. I like it because it gives me a slightly darker tone without making me look orange. i doesn't go on patchy and isn't too thick. I has a bit of shimmer in it which gives your face a glow in the sunlight. 

Third Product- Blusher 
I use the MAC blusher from the quite cute collection, it is in the colour giggly. It was £15 and well worth it. I only bought it last week and so far i have loved it. I like is because it is a really nice light pink and it defines your cheekbones really well.

Fourth Product-Eye Brightener 

I use the Benefit eye brightener. It was £14 and it really does work. I apply it under my eyes as in the morning i get quite bad bags. It really brings out your eyes and you don't look as tired!

Fifth Product-Mascara

I use the Max Factor lash lash effect. For only £7.99 it is an amazing mascara. I have used quite a few mascaras and it have been my favourite so far. I like it because it makes your lashes look a lot longer and i think it kind of curls them at the same time, it is max factors biggest ever brush and it doesn't make them clumpy. 

Sixth Product- Lipstick

It is a MAC lipstick, from the viva glam collection. It is the lady gaga one and is £10.50. It is such a nice colour and it looks really nice on. 

Seventh Product-Perfume
I use Givenchy play, it comes in 3 sizes- a small, medium and large. I bought the small to try and see if i liked it and i fell in love with it, it smells so good and i really like the bottle. The small is really portable which i like because i like to have it in my bag. It is quite an expensive perfume with the smallest bottle (30ml) costing £36 but i think it is worth it and as i have nearly finished mine i will definitely be buying a new one!

Thank-you for reading!
Follow me and i will follow back!
Byee :)
