Oxford Street // Primark’s New Candles

Hello Everyone!

I’m sorry I have been lacking on blog posts recently!

Today I went to Oxford Street with with my cousin and we went to sooo many shops that it fells like my feet are going to fall off!!!

I went to Primark and discovered their new homeware range which include these stunning candles which I picked up. The first one is in the scent White Cardamon & Sage which smells really fresh. It also has a wooden lid which I love and this candle does not look like it came from Primark AT ALL! This candle only cost £4.

The next candle is in a black and copper packaging which is so lovely and is in the scent Bamboo and Jasmine which smells a little bit spicy but fresh at the same time! I love this candle as well and it only cost £3 which is amazing. If you like candles like me then I really recommend picking these up!

Just in case you didn’t know, I am a little bit obsessed with candles! If you want me to show you my collection in a post then comment below! 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed this!

Colour Obstacle Run!

Hello people of the internet!

I hope you are well and enjoying the day! I thought that I would write a post on something very fun that I did on the weekend.

I took part in an event called the Colour Obstacle Run which consisted of a 5km run whilst completing obstacles and people throwing powdered paint over you! It was soooo much fun and it was a really great experience as I have never done anything like this before! I was a bit apprehensive but once it started I had great fun! The obstacles included foam, inflatable balls which you had to run past, inflatable slides and so much more! It was also so much fun to complete it with my friends and even my mum and brother took part! We all got free t-shirts and a medal at the end of the race!

The reason I wanted to tell you guys about this event is simply to tell you to say yes to new experiences and just to have fun! I have really tried to say yes more to things and it has defiantly made me feel so much happier! If you ever see a Colour Run near you then I highly suggest you do it as I had the time of my life and absolutely loved it!


I hope you enjoyed reading this post! Comment whether you would ever take part in a colour run!

Meeting Fleur De Force!

Hello everyone!

So as you can tell by the title, I met Fleur De Force who is a YouTuber, Blogger and Author of “The Glam Guide”. I heard that Fleur was doing a meet up in London Covent Garden in the Urban Decay shop on the 29th May 2015 so I went along!

I have Fleur’s book called The Glam Guide and I really love it as it gives you so many tips about beauty, fashion and lifestyle so if you haven’t read it I suggest you do!

So on the 29th May I went to London with my friend Jade to go to Oxford Street (as we really wanted to go to the new Lush!) which was so fun! Then we got on the tube to covent garden and queued up to meet Fleur. She was so lovely and she signed my book and we got a photo together and I just love how nice she is in real life. Some YouTubers seem fake or not very excited to meet fans but I could tell that Fleur was a really lovely person. The whole experience was so surreal as I only watch her through a screen but it felt like I knew her.

When we were in Primark in Oxford Street I also saw this blogger called Charlotte Fisher and I had a photo with her and we chatted for a bit 🙂

Overall I had such a fun day and had the time of my life 🙂
