What have Skye Candles and Desperate Housewives got in common?

Skye Candles

Mother's Day GiftsApril’s nearly gone and I’ve barely blogged all month – time to catch up then, albeit in brief! One of the things I forgot to mention back in March was the very lovely and special Mother’s Day I had. My daughters spolied me with flowers, M&S vouchers, organic soap, the first season of Desperate Housewives and a rose-scented Skye candle.

They’ve been trying to get me to watch Desperate Housewives for ages so they’ll be pleased to know that we’re well into it now and are really enjoying it. I still haven’t spent my voucher but I’ve got my eye on a new Summer bag so I’ll keep you updated on that one, girls.

Skye Candles

The candle comes from The Isle of Skye Candle Company, a family run business which makes their gorgeous candles Skye Candlesby hand using natural soya wax – so no soot! It’s the second soy candle that Helena has bought me and as you can see, I loved the last vanilla and fig Skye candle too.

Other things I can give The Thumbs Up to in April are Weleda. I love to bits the Weleda One-Step Cleanser & Toner and have just rediscovered the Pomegranate Hand Cream too.

Most of you will know that I’m a huge Weleda fan anyway but it’s always good to come across products I haven’t tried before. The One-Step Cleanser is easy to use and makes my skin feel soft and squeaky clean after using. I tried a sample of the Weleda Oat Replenishing Shampoo too but to be honest, I didn’t really feel it suited my hair-type.The Thumbs Up

In brief – The Thumbs Up to chocolate, Simon Lelic, Prey, Happy Valley, GoggleBox, Britain’s Got Talent and scented candles. The Thumbs Down to Max Clifford, cooking fish (as it makes the house stink for days), iPhones (mine keeps ‘dying’!) and stupid trending topics on Twitter!


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.
