There’s really nothing better than the house smelling amazing from a new glowing, fragrant candle. If you’re like me and totally obsessed with candles and wax melts, then I have some amazing local places to share with you! I love finding new places to buy candles, instead of the usual high street brands. As lovely as they are, you can pick them up anywhere and the unique-ness of them starts to wear off as replicas are made in supermarkets. Fine for a quick fix, but if you just adore a beautiful candle either for yourself or for a present (who doesn’t LOVE a candle!?), then there are some wonderful local businesses you should try. Also, because the huge brands are already ‘out there’ and doing well, it’s time to champion some of our own (which in my opinion are better!) and give them the recognition they deserve, because these candles are made with love and from real, genuine, hard-working people. A quote I saw a few years ago has always stuck with me, “when you buy from a small business, an actual person does a little happy dance!” and it is so true!
I just wanted to write a small review of Dr. Paw Paw Original Balm because oh my god, this balm it’s and actual miracle!! You can use this for pretty much anything, it’s all natural ingredients and it’s so affordable! Using Carica Papaya (PAWPAW), full of antioxidants, minerals and also containing vitamins C + B, the balm helps to aid skin repair, provides anti-inflammatory properties and adds moisture.
A few of you lovely ladies have been in touch on Instagram when I post about my Glasglow Girls Club (GGC) rose gold keyring asking just what is it exactly?! And what is the GGC?! I don’t want any of you missing out, and I know that founder of the GGC, Laura Maginess definitely doesn’t want you missing out! So let me tell you a little bit about it, and how I’ve used my membership so far! Lets start at the beginning…
In my previous post, Four Hours in Amsterdam, I wore a cute lil’ bold skirt with a simple jumper, and when I put it on Instagram a few people messaged asking where it’s from!
As the Meghan Markle craze continues to sweep over us, one thing that has us all wanting to be her is that wardrobe! From classy knee-length dresses (probs the only length you’re allowed to wear as a royal) to French berets, everything she wears, we want. Her style is timeless and she has an aura of effortless class with every fresh look. Something she has been wearing a lot recently are wide leg trousers, even wearing them on her recent visit to Edinburgh with her husband-to-be.
A must-have this spring, these trousers create a gorgeous silhouette and are really flattering on every body shape. For one, I am petite at 5ft2 (and three quarters!) and never thought a shorter girl like me could get away with an extra wide trouser leg, yet I was so wrong! Because of the way the waist pulls in and the way the leg flares out and down to the ground, the style actually makes my legs appear longer.
It’s that time of year when love is in the air, things are heating up and the world is full of heart-eye emoji’s. You know I love to shop local, and I’ve found some gorgeous and affordable pieces round Glasgow and the surrounding areas that will make the perfect Valentine’s date night outfit or a perfect gift for that special someone.
