Chantel Martin Candles

As the winter months draw in I am sure many of you are digging out all of the scented candles and snuggling up on the sofa with loads of comfort food. I was an extremely lucky girl and was asked if I wanted to try out a few candles from the Chantel Martin* collection. They are a relatively new company, ran by husband and wife Paul and Chantel Martin, but I can tell they are going to be a big success. 

When I received two massive boxes of candles I was extremely surprised. They asked me to pick out some of the big ones and they said they would send me one each of the votive's. I was definitely not expecting the amount that arrived. The candles were packaged very well, with so much polystyrene I don't think they could ever break. They arrived next day by courier which is a great bonus. 

The selection of scents are extraordinary, whether you prefer refreshing, floral or comforting, you will definitely find one you like. So much so that I thought I would go through, smell them all and then pick a favourite. This proved a hell of a lot harder than I first thought as I honestly love them all. I tried to separate the ones I liked the most and it turned out to be half of them! I love Mango, Jasmine Neroli and Mint, Clean Cotton, Whitewood Vanilla and Patchouli, Cranberry, Bubblegum, Fresh Lemon, Watermelon Sorbet, Baby Powder, Luscious Lemon, Fresh Mint and Verbena, White Florals and Ginger (I told you it was difficult). The rest also smelt incredible too, the only one I wasn't too keen on was Amber Nectarine Rose and Wild Honey. Can you believe I only found one I didn't like out of approx 20. I am normally extremely fussy with candle scents.
The Chantel Martin candles have a good strong scent cold, when they are lit it does take a little bit of time for the smell to fill the room. Having said that they are still much better than most scented candles I've tried. The big jars burn quite slowly so I think they will last me quite a long time. I burnt a couple of votive's and they went down about half way in about 6 hours which is quite quick, but brilliant considering they only cost £2.50. The medium apothecary jars come in at £9.99, the large at £15.99 and the luxury scents (ones with metal lids) are priced at £19.99. Overall they burnt down well and did not leave any of that nasty black stuff on the glass. 
The service I received from this company was amazing. Paul informed me that he was not happy with the colour of the Whitewood luxury one, which as you might be able to tell from the photo's looks a little bit different. He sent it anyways and promised to send me a replacement when he was happy with it. I wouldn't too bothered how it looked because it still smelt incredible so I completely forgot about it. I then received a new one a couple of days ago which does look a lot cleaner. I was so impressed with the honesty and generosity I received, Chantel and Paul seem like lovely people. 


I honestly love these candles so much, I am so impressed with all the scents and I would 100% recommend them to anyone! Check out Chantel Martin Candles here www.chantelmartincandles.com or they will be happy to help you on Twitter twitter.com/Chantel__Martin

Charnos Hosiery National Stockings Day

A few weeks ago I attended an event to celebrate National Stockings Day. This was created by Charnos Hosiery* to encourage more women to wear stockings instead of tights as well as raising money for Breast Cancer Care. The theme of the event was 'The Only Way is Stockings' as it was located in TOWIE star Lydia Bright's shop, Bella Sorella in Loughton Essex. 


Me and Lydia
Georgia and Lydia 
Goody Bag
I event was so much fun, Lydia and her sister were so kind and down to earth, we chatted to them for ages and got to have a look round their wonderful shop. Charnos have a massive range of tights and stockings, and are also brilliant quality. I vlogged some of the event which you can watch below.

BH Cosmetics Palettes

I was recently watching Carly Bybel use the new BH Cosmetics Wild Palettes in a video and I just knew I had to have them. But I didn't just buy one, they were all so pretty I just couldn't choose, so I bought all three (*face palm*). And as BH are so cheap and I had to make the shipping worth while, I also bought the extremely popular Galaxy Chic palette too (*face palm again*). So I now have enough baked eyeshadows to last me a very long time!

Wild Child £7.47

Galaxy Chic £9.34

All these shadows are so incredibly bright and pigmented. They are great quality and I didn't experience much fall out. I would highly recommend them to anyone as they are fantastic value for money (although I did have to pay £13 customs charges). I will do some individual posts of these palettes, including swatches soon.

Chi Chi London Dress

A few weeks ago I attended a charity event at Lydia Bright's Shop Bella Sorella in Essex. As she always looks so bloody good, I decided this event would be the perfect excuse to wear my new dress from Chi Chi London*. 
This dress does look slightly blue in some of the close up pics, but that is just the light, I assure you it is black. I love how the top lace part is very fitted and then it springs out into a gorgeous skater skirt, with a band in the middle separating the two. I wouldn't normally go for such a high neck dress but this one looks great and is still very flattering. This bestselling dress would suit most shapes as the sinched in waist is very slimming and flattering. However those with bigger boobs probably wouldn't go for such a high neck line as it can look a big top heavy. The lace top part is quite thick and skirt has thick petticoats so is great for winter and perfect for Christmas parties.
Dress* - Chi Chi London £47.99
Cape - Dagenham Market
Stocking/tights* - Charnos Hosiery
Heels - Dorothy Perkins (Old)
More details of the event will be up in a blog post soon and I also vlogged so stay tuned to my YouTube channel to see that video. 

Lots of love
