Hey Good Friday

Happy Good Friday Folks! I bet everyone is having a good bank holiday. I have been waiting for this bank holiday weekend all month. It is good to have a bit of relaxed time off with the family. Bank holiday or not, I am still working. I am always working but my bank holiday working hours are usually reduced.

My plan for the day is to blog, sleep, relax, eat and merry. I have a few shows to catch up on today. So I will be doing that all weekend.

Here are ways I will be relaxing this lovely bank holiday weekend, and things I will be doing.

 

 

Merrying with The Lakes Gin

I will be chilling with The Lakes Rhubarb and Rosehip Liqueur 70cl. This beautiful pink bottle landed on my doorstep some days ago, and I have been loving the amazing taste. This Lakes Gin comes with a layer of Rhubarb and the fruit of the Rose. The packaging is so beautiful and the taste is divine. I am in love. You can grab a bottle for £27.95.

 

Relaxing with Yankee Candles

I will be relaxing with these amazing Yankee Candles. My favourite is the Spiced White Cocoa Candle. It has a lingering fragrance that smells so sweet. I am also in love with the other 2 candles, especially The Perfect Tree Candle. I got these candles over Christmas and I have been burning them for weeks now. Yankee Candles have a way of relaxing me.

 

Finish the Laundry

I have loads of washing to do, which I plan to finish up in time for our holiday. I have been using this Ariel Gel for some days now, and it has helped a lot. With a 2 kiddies, my washing machine is always running, so products like this are always useful. Wish me luck with the never-ending laundry.

 

What are you up to this lovely Good Friday? Any plans for the bank holiday?

Great Autumn Products

I have been busy trying some great autumn products this last few weeks. From lovely scented candles to amazing skincare products. Here are a few of them that rocked my world.

 

Yankee Candles

If you know me well enough, you would know I am a sucker for candles. I have candles in almost every room in my house. And I tend to favour Yankee Candles above all others. I can always bet on them smelling great and looking lush. They are also great as Christmas gifts for candle lovers. There is nothing I love more than wrapping myself up in my blanket, burning a candle and watching some Netflix. It is the best thing ever!

SheaMoisture’s Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth & Tame Collection

I am a huge fan of the SheaMoisture brand. I have used a number of products from the brand and I love every of them. This collection dropped on my doorstep some weeks ago and it has been so useful. I really like the fact there are no paragons, sulfates, artificial colouring, or synthetic fragrance.

5 Things I Love About Autumn

beauty-blogger-uk

 

Autumn is here and it is my favourite season as you should all know by now (because I don’t shut up about my love for Autumn, hehehe). I love the gradual transition from summer to winter, and I enjoy the transition weather a lot.

There are so many things about this season that I love but if I have to narrow my top 5 things I love about Autumn, here is how I would list them –

Chilled Evenings

I love how chilled out everywhere is during Autumn. After the hustle and bustle of summer with barbecues, picnics, holidays and people just all over the place, it is a breath of fresh air to just sit back and enjoy relaxing/chilled out evenings with my Sky Tv. The chilled evenings also make room for some me time with my personal grooming assistants – I like to have many bubble baths with my Yankee Candles burning in the background. I like to enjoy a massage with my massaging gadget, I like to relax and enjoy a manicure and pedicure with my mani/pedi gift set, and I like to shave my legs with my new epilator.

I have my evenings planned out this season and I plan to make the most of them.

 

Colour Change in Leaves

The colour change in leaves is so beautiful, I love it so much. The vibrant ambers, reds and yellows of Autumn is the best sight ever!

 

Chilly Weather

After the heat wave we experienced this summer, the chilly weather is needed. I like the fact that it is not too warm or too cold in Autumn, it is just perfect. The chilly weather is one of the best things in Autumn.

Autumn Fashion

I love Autumn Fashion as you all know already. The transition to layering style is so cool. I like the fact that I can throw on and off layers when needed.

 

The Darkness

It is getting dark already and I am not usually a fan of the darkness but as soon as I became a mother, I began to cherished the shorter days and longer nights because it is a lot easier to get the kids in bed at night, and get them to wake in the morning at a good time. Unlike in summer when it is still very bright at bedtime (7pm), my kids sometimes find it very difficult to understand that it is actually bed time, and then the sun comes out so early, they think it is their wake up time or what they call “morning time”. Good not to have to deal with that during Autumn/Winter.

 

Are you a fan of the Autumn season? What do you like the most about the season? Drop me a comment in the comment section below.

Thanks for reading.
