I Love You, I Love You Not…..

Milana Candles

Milana CandleI’m loving my new Milana Candle and it really does smell like a ‘Bed of Roses’! My living room smells so good! Apart from the simply scrummy scent, it’s made from 100% soy wax and is free of petroleum, paraffin and  beeswax products, so it’s a much cleaner burn. No black sooty marks on the wall and better for our lungs too! I’ve been using it every night for over a week now but it’s hardly gone down and is going to last around 40 hours apparently. Yay!

Ted Baker Perfume Set

Ted Baker perfume gift setI bought this really gorgeous Ted Baker Perfume Gift Set for a friend for her birthday last week and nearly didn’t give it to her as it’s so nice. The box alone is worth a mention as it’s got such a lovely on-trend print on it. The set contains a Body Lotion and an Eau de Toilette both in a ‘great-to-wear-everyday’ light floral scent.

The layering effect of the body lotion with the eau de toilette helps to make the scent last all day – always a bonus. And do you know what the best thing is? This incredibly pretty gift set only cost me £10 from The Perfume Shop!

Number One Beauty Blog?

This week I’ve decided I’m a massive EBuzzing fan as they’ve said that TheThumbsUp is their Number One Beauty Blog for February 2014. Now I know I’m not just a beauty blog as I write about holidays and loads of other stuff too but it’s really good to know that someone out there likes what I’m doing and the way that I do it. Thank you EBuzzing!

The Husband's SecretAnother thing I’m giving ‘The Thumbs Up’ to this week is The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty which I finished reading last week. It was a really good, gripping read and to use a cliche, ‘unputdownable’! The lives of several families are intertwined in the book and it kind of makes you think that no matter how cool and collected people look on the surface, we’re all treading water madly underneath. The book starts with a woman finding a letter from her husband addressed to her but only be opened in the event of his death. Should she or shouldn’t she open it? Well as you may have guessed, she does and what a Pandora’s Box it turns out to be.

Read it! It’s brilliant and well worth buying!

Mrs C
In a nutshell, I'm a Mum to three gorgeous daughters and two step-sons who are gradually making their own lives and leaving Mr. C and I plenty of time to enjoy life just as a couple again. I'm a big fan of Afternoon Tea & Corrie and hate, with a vengeance, violence in films! I love reading 'proper' books though I concede that my birthday Kindle was brilliant on holidays.
