If you know me then you will know that I have a slight obsession with candles... I originally went onto the Kringle candle website to look for some more breakable wax potpourri, because I prefer them so much more to the yankee wax tarts, it's easier to break off and they generally have some gorgeous scents! But as always I got sucked into some deals they were doing "Buy one large crystal 2 wick pillar candle and get 10 free votives worth £21 something!" ... obviously I caved and did it because I lack any self restraint. In the photo I've only included 8 of the votives because I couldn't stand the smell of the other two they included 'Bayberry' and 'Pumpkin spice' which my mum loves so she's now the proud owner of those two! I'm not a fan of spicey scents in the slightest, I love sweet and fruit smells... But I love all of the other scents that were included so she's not getting any of those!
I've been looking for a candy cane scented candle for so long, minty and sweet... mmmm! I couldn't find one on Yankee candle so hallelujah when I found 'Peppermint Kiss' On kringle candle! I got a little bit excited by this, even without ever having smelt the candle I brought it in the breakable wax potpourri as well and I'm so glad I did, it's such a beautiful sweet smell! If you don't like sweet smells then stay away from this, and it's sickly sweet! I also chose 'Freestone peach' which is so lovely I'm thinking of buying it in a large candle and 'Watermelon' which is a clean fruity smell which just reminds me of summer! I've never had a Kringle candle before, only the wax so I'll have to report back on how well it burns but I've heard that they had some relation to Yankee candle before, so I have high hopes for it!
Crystal pillar 2-wick Large candle: £21.99
Breakable wax potpourri: £2.15

Everyday I just use one eyeshadow quad, my mac palette because it has my perfect eyebrow shade with doubles up as a crease colour (Charcoal brown) two all over the lid colours (All that glitters, Woodwinked) and a highlight (Shroom). Finally some winged out eyeliner and some mascara and I'm done, sometime's I'll add a lipstick like the bourjois shine edition as it's comfortable and easy to wear.

So I'm pretty sure we've all heard of Hydraluron now, right? I picked it up a couple of months ago when it was 1/3 off from boots as I couldn't justify spending the whole £24.99 on a product I wasn't sure I would even like, but as always curiosity got the better of me. The whole point of this product is that you apply it prior to your moisturiser and it holds 1000x it's weight in water, pretty impressive! It's capable of doing this from it's high levels of hyaluronic acid which is an ingredient which is really well known for retaining water and having high moisturising capabilities. When you first apply it, it sinks into your skin and leaves behind a tacky feeling which isn't pleasant what-so-ever but this goes as soon as your pop your moisturiser on top of it.
I started using Hydraluron and began to get annoyed as I wasn't seeing a difference, everyone was claiming it does amazing things to your skin yet I was noticing nothing, had I really spent so much money on a useless product? oh no... how wrong I was, after a month of constant use I noticed that my skin didn't feel dehydrated at all or lack lustre, it looked plump and healthy. To put hydraluron to the test, to definitely make sure it was this product that was making my skin look so good I stopped using it for 2 weeks, during that time I noticed I had a bit of flakey skin on my forehead and my skin's texture felt more rough rather than the baby smooth skin I was now used to! Now that i'm back to using this product everything's back to normal and I'm happy. I do think you have to take a break from it to notice the amount of good it's doing for your skin, will I purchase it again? yes, of course but I think I'll wait until it's on 1/3 off again before I do!

On halloween Aaron graduated for university and seeing as it was halloween we celebrated by going out clubbing dressed up! I had to be up at 6:15 on my day off... crazy! If you don't know... Aaron's the guy in the spiderman outfit and it was a dandy night indeed! I was supposed to be a zombie convict but hey... I got a bit carried away with makeup and just ended up having a white sewn on face looking all black and white!? I've also noticed that these are the first photos I've uploaded with my hair lighter, yay for not having black hair anymore!
