whats the obsession... candles... CHEAP ...just a little post

Hello lovely people,

So today i have been out a picked up just a couple of things which i wanted share...

So over the past 6 months i have been getting into reading peoples blogs and watching alot of YouTube videos and it didn't take me long to realize people seemed to have some sort of obsession with candles.

To be honest with you i didn't really get it and thought it was a tad crazy to be posting about candles?!?!

But here i am writing about them.... so i had bought a couple of cheap candles around Christmas to put in a sort of pamper basket for a couple of my friends as a little something with the main bits and bats i bought but never ended up putting them in so thought why not give them a try...

They we skittle candles which smell DELICIOUS!!! that kind of smell where you wish the thing your smelling was edible. Much to my surprise i loved them and popped out today to by a couple more as they are 89p each! what a bargain.

As you can see i bought two more of the skittle candles which were melon and raspberry then saw this set of four which i smelt and had to buy! They are a bakery selection which come in cranberry cupcake, cookies & cream, apple & toffee pie and gingerbread man which  were £1.99 !!! 50p  each cant go wrong at that.

Here the ones i have lighted at the moment, making my room smell lovely indeed ! i also picked up a mug for my makeup brushes which was another little steal!
(My brushes are in a desperate need of a clean so if you have any recommendations let me know!)
What are your favorite candles? and how do you find the best way to store your brushes?

motivation for once!!!

Hi lovely people,

So i'm sure i'm not the only one who gets into these ruts where you have just no motivation to do much and each day seems to bring the same old things. Well today was a different... 

I went out for lunch with one of my best friends before she goes back to uni* [not a happy bunny, so don't want her to go back] and had such a good catch up.

Much to my surprise once i got home i had so much motivation to get stuff done, i tidied my room which was needed! and then sorted all my stuff out for uni like my new timetable and looking at syllabus's for my new classes and then making lists of all the other things i need to do...

I wanted to take some photos for a blog post however realized i left my camera at my boyfriends so he is going to bring it round so depending on the time i might do that later.

Do any of you feel like this? what do you do to get motivated?

New year... New start...Do what you enjoy!

Hey lovely people,

So its been a while* [a long while] since i last posted on this blog but today on the off chance i came across a message someone had left on here and it made me want to start blogging again. I guess i was reminded that some people still do read or come across this blog and i do enjoy doing it so why not start!

I guess in the past i thought if no one read then what is the point but i have decided that i enjoy it and even if no one ever reads it its still fun and i have enjoyed it...

SO ... here's what i am going to do...

1. Try and post regularly on here about beauty, fashion and my thoughts.
2. Use my camera... This might seem strange but i have never owned my own camera and when i got some money* [yup, my student loan] i decided to pick one up ... don't get me wrong its by no mean amazing but it will do the job at the moment.

Lets hope that this time i stick to it ...

Have any of you struggled when first starting your blog?

Sarah xoxo
