Recent Purchases: Laura Mercier Candles

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

So on Christmas Day, instead of peeling the potatoes when I was supposed to, instead I was sprawled out on the sofa, laptop on lap, perusing the Space NK sale.

As a result of my procrastination and beady eye, yet more candles landed in my online basket and I'm now the owner of not one, but three Laura Mercier candles.

Originally I bought two of the Creme Brulees, but then I felt 'left out' (subtle enabling at its very worst) when I saw a couple of other bloggers talking about the Warm Roasted Chestnut scent, so I ordered that an hour later. As I type, I have it burning in the background and it's most definitely a winner! I was a bit unsure whether I'd like it, but it smells amazing. So rich and warm...a bit like erm, roasted chestnuts!

Blogging in 2013 - The Plan.

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that your start to 2013 has been a great one so far. After a few weeks off, I finally feel ready to get back to blogging.

Last year was a bit of a turbulent one, blog-wise for me. I lost momentum and struggled to find the time to blog as regularly as I've done in previous years. That coupled with the fact that my personal life took priority with the spare time I had, so it didn't leave me with much time to sit down for hours on end writing posts and editing photos (I hate editing photos). 2012 however, was one of the best years of my life in which so many memories were created with friends and family, so the good definitely outweighed the bad.
