Laura’s Doodles – Laura Davies Graphic Art Designs – New Theme

As you have seen, I have recently updated my blog theme to a fresher, green tropical leaf scene – along with updating my Instagram feed with a brighter, silver background rather than the dark purple one I had previously!

Portraits

I was lucky enough to discover Laura’s Doodles, a graphic design creative by Laura Davies from Cardiff. I adored her art style from the moment I saw her creations.

Her art style a mix of realism but with a “cartoon”-esque twist, this creates a beautifully unique image which is simply stunning. Falling in love with the images, I commissioned her to create my new header image in line with my fresh, tropical theme directive in line with my chosen colour palette!

Here are a few other pieces of her artwork, you can find more by visiting her Instagram, or her website. Laura offers commissions, and has helped create numerous bloggers with logos, backgrounds and other graphic designs for them to use on social media and their websites. So if you’re looking to revamp your online image – give her a shout!

Vanity Tidy – Sainsbury’s Home – Grey and Diamond Desk Tidy

IMG_7021

A large vanity tidy with a deep drawer to hold all of your makeup needs!

I stumbled upon this “Letter Rack” in Sainsbury’s and thought it was a perfect addition to my vanity table as it stores a lot and looks super cute!

This letter rack has two large spaces, which is perfect for palettes of any size and tall foundation bottles as well as a deep drawer for other items such as lipsticks and moisturisers. I think its so cute that it has three clear diamond handles on the drawer which are so chic and on trend.

I’m able to store my three Anastasia Beverley Hills eye shadow palettes in the back in one stack as both of the standing spaces are 6cm in depth making it a biggy! I can also store my entire Glow Kit collection in one stack in the front row, and you know how many of those palettes I have! The drawer is 6.5cm deep, 12cm wide, and 30cm in length – which you can easily add separators in to customise the drawer into how you want it.

The letter rack comes painted in a light neutral grey which adds a bit of calm to the room – or if that’s not your cup of tea, it is easy to undo the three handles and give it a lick of paint to match your colour scheme!

Bottom Line: Absolutely in love with this rack tidy, as I’ve been able to fit all of my palettes in this!

Price: £16 at Sainsbury’sLink takes you to one that has 3 individual drawers instead of one big one, check in your local store!

SERENITY CANDLES – Medium 30cl Glass Jar – Christmas Spice – PR

IMG_2798

Adds a touch of Christmas Magic to your house.

I was very lucky to receive this Christmas Spice candle from Serenity Candles NI for me to review for my followers – Please note I received this complimentary!

I was very eager to light this candle on Christmas eve to get me in the festive mood after working non-stop over the holidays. This candle is fragranced with a hint of spice, with the warmness and sweetness of chocolate orange underneath – it reminded me of the Christmas mornings surrounded with cinnamon sticks whilst I ate my body weight in chocolate….

IMG_2799

This candle burnt for a very long time, lasting from morning to evening, and then during Christmas day, with approximately 26 hours of life. As the candle is soy based, it burnt cleanly, rather than ashing everything, which is common with standard high-street candles – including Yankee Candles, which have now stained my wall a charcoal grey…

Bottom Line: A luxurious, handmade and poured candle that can give Yankee Candle a run for their money!

Price: £8 at Serenity Candles NI.

Serenity Candles – Rose Gold Tin – Black Cherry – PR

IMG_2796

I was very lucky to receive this Black Cherry candle from Serenity Candles NI for me to review for my followers – Please note I received this complimentary!

Serenity Candles is a company that prides themselves on being 100% natural, only using the best ingredients in every item they hand-make. They only use Soy wax, which is environmentally friendly and made from vegetable oil. Their packaging oozes pure luxury with their classy rose gold tins that will look beautiful on everyone’s vanity!

Soy wax candles are becoming the new candles of choice due to their eco-friendly aspect and cleaner burning. Due to the soy wax having a lower burning temperature than traditional candle wax, it produces less soot which enhances the aroma and prevents nasty smoke being let off.

This black cherry scent is beautiful, and is reminiscent of a perfectly baked cherry pie. The container is a stunning rose gold tin, which looks amazing on my vanity. This candle burnt for a long, long while and lasted me approximately 60 hours over various days!

Bottom Line: A luxurious, handmade and poured candle that can give Yankee Candle a run for their money!

Price: £10 at Serenity Candles NI.
