How To Glow Your Way Through Winter

Be Beautiful Hair &Beauty

Through the cold winter months, there is no better feeling than coming home, taking off my makeup, getting into my comfy clothes and lighting my favourite candle. I’ve always loved candles, but was often left disappointed when they didn’t burn evenly, only smelt when they weren’t lit or were left looking ugly as the black soot began to form around the top of the jar.

But as soon as I discovered the stunning range of Gatcombe Candle Co, I instantly fell in love! Nicky’s based in Shropshire and creates beautiful scented candles and wax melts which look stunning in any home.

Just like her candles, Nicky is so warm and inviting and handcrafts all of her candles and wax melts using 100% soy wax. I’ve finally discovered a candle that looks beautiful, smells out of this world and actually throws its scent as it burns.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know I never stock anything I don’t love so I’m delighted that I can now spread the candle and wax melt love, as I’ve officially become a stockist for the Gatcombe Candle Co.

For me, a beautiful smelling home, makes me feel calm and happy. It helps relax my mind after a busy day. It may sound strange, but I also really like what a candle represents… As children, we were taught to always make a wish before we blew them out on a birthday cake. We often light a candle to calm our minds or to have a little soak in the bath after a long day or to reflect on loved ones who are no longer with us.

So, if you are like me and love a beautiful smelling candle or wax melt and would like more information on the scents available, please feel free to get in touch. Whether you are looking for a beautiful gift or simply want to treat yourself.

The wax melts contain six cubes which you can expect to get approximately 70 hours from the pack. The candles are available in a large tins which have an approximate burn time of 30 hours and the small tin is approximately 20 hours.

5 Hair Products I Love… And Think You Will Too!

With so many hair products to choose from, how do you know where to start? If you are anything like me, you want it all! Care, shine, style and hold. So, If you are short of time and want products that do what they promise, here are my top 5 products that I love and use day in, day out…

To take care of your colour at home, I personally recommend Wella Brilliance Colour Shampoo. This definitely helps keep my colour brighter for longer and leaves my hair full of shine. It’s available for both Fine/Normal and Thick/Coarse Hair with conditioners to match.

I cannot recommend Moroccan Oil enough. It’s a clever little product and can be used as a conditioner, styling and finishing product all in one. Not only does it smell out of this world, it also detangles, speeds up drying time and boosts shine. You won’t regret purchasing this one!

To add some texture I really love Label M Texturising Volume Spray. It combines the benefits of a Dry Shampoo and Hairspray all in one. It’s great for both long and short hair and creates volume and texture just where you need it. You can even layer the product to create a bolder, stronger style and create a backcombed look with ease, perfect for day or evening!

This is brand new, Wella’s Mistify Me Hairspray. This fine mist dries in record time, has a fresh scent and won’t leave your hair feeling overloaded. This will give you a firm hold for up to 24 hours and at the end of the day, can be brushed out with ease.


For even more shine, try Wella’s Glam Mist. This is just purely for shine, so without any hold. Think of it as perfume for your hair too, because it smells absolutely AMAZING! The other thing I love about Glam Mist is it doesn’t make your hair look or feel greasy like some other shine sprays can.

If you would like anymore information on any of the above products, feel free to leave me a comment below. Alternatively you can pop over to my Facebook page, where I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Love,
