Loving the gingerbread scent

I know gingerbread is a festive scent and it is not quite Christmas yet but I am currently loving the gingerbread scent. It just reminds me of baking gingerbread but without having to go through the effort of actually making them, which is great.

Gingerbread is very much associated as festive scent around Christmas. But I really don't think it's restricted to only being used at Christmas- I use it all year round and I'm not ashamed.

 The Zoella hand cream is perfect just to chuck in your bag when you're going out in this kind of weather. it keeps your hand hydrated and makes them smell amazing, so it's a win-win. Not gonna lie, I do often find myself just smelling the cream... and my hands after I've put it on.

Now, my favourite candle of last year was the Gingerbread House Tuscany candle which I managed to get half price from Clintons just after Christmas. It has up to 50 hours of burning time and I still have it nearly a year later. So pleased with this purchase. I had never heard of this brand of candle until buying this one and I have bought another one in Cinnamon Spice and I absolutely love the brand now.

Let me know if you have other scented candles from the brand in the comments below and let me know hat you think of them.

19 things I've achieved in 19 years

So it's very my 20th birthday and I was thinking back on all the things I've achieved or just done so far in my life and I wanted to share them. Hopefully it'll make you appreciate the things you have achieved in your life so far too even if they are little things.

Puzzlewood adventures

So a few weeks ago I decided to go for a day out with my sister and her friend. Despite the weather being pretty awful we did have a lovely day and embraced the rain the best we could. For those who have never heard of Puzzlewood before it is an ancient woodland site and tourist attraction near Coleford in the Forest of Dean.


"What do you want to be when you grow up?"

When we're younger we are just discovering the world and ourselves and we are always being faced with the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?". This can be from teachers at school, friends or family and parents. I was never that kid who wanted to be something like a princess or an astronaut, which are totally cool things to be if I'm honest. I actually had a more serious idea of what I wanted to. That kinda sums up what I was like as a child really... I was the serious one, well sometimes. For a long time during primary school I had wanted to be a writer. I didn't really know what kind of writer I wanted be but I liked the idea of being an author and at one point I did start writing a story (It didn't last long though).


Lets Talk About Moving To University

So this is a different post to usual but I had been planning to write it since I started my blog a few months ago.
