30 Something Beauty Addict is a Beauty Blog wrote by me, Kirsty. I have much love for all beauty products and Japan! Ok, ok, it’s not just a beauty blog, it’s also for my solo traveling tips with an emphasis on Japan. I truely love the place!
I go away on holidays a lot by myself and I bloody love it. You only live once! So to all of those women out there that have considered going solo, GO FOR IT! You will not regret it, but obviously be safe 😊 It’s me time and good for the soul when you travel solo.
I wanted a copper ceiling light to go with my beautiful copper kitchen tap from Francis Pegler but I couldn’t find a style in that shade that I liked. Instead I purchased this ceiling light from Pagazzi Lighting and spray painted it copper.
I had to prime the metal with a primer spray can. It took a few coats of the copper until I was happy and it’s included in my stories.
I’ve been giving my home a renovation with new flooring and I’m a very lucky gal because my dad has been putting it down for me.
Loving the clean lines from my stairway recent refresh.

I gave my chest of draws from Madedotcom a revamp by painting the draw pulls red. I primed the metal with a spray paint first and added three coats of the red paint I got from Amazon. The draw pulls are from HomeLuxCo
I still love the chest of draws but it’s worth noting that the top of the cabinet collects dust so bad!! It’s not as bad as a glass cabinet but still annoying.
It’s the city’s first ever distillery! They offer a range of spirits from gin to vodka and most recently, Rye Whisky.
Oxford Rye is a unique spirit, that is distilled from ancient heritage Rye. It’s described as liquid Rye as it’s a delicate and golden colored spirit.
This has a strong Rye flavour with definite sweet and caramel undertones. Especially smooth when served with ice or with a mixer. A very different taste to standard whisky and a good way to jump into Rye whisky.
AD – Only Enso is a UK brand that specializes in Japanese inspired Home Fragrance. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ll know I adore anything related to Japan 🇯🇵
Each candle comes in a cute canvas bag, which would make it a lovely gift.
Although I have been gifted this beautiful candle, I have purchased three already 😊 They have a variety of candles, which includes cute Lotus and Moon candles.
This candle is called Onsen, with fragrance Lavender, Rock Salt and Driftwood – it smells divine. In Japan, Onsens are the country’s hot springs and the bathing facilities and traditional inns, around them.
This is also my #tokyotuesday pick 🇯🇵
Thank you Only Enso for gifting me this wonderful candle ♥️
AD – I’ve been lucky enough to receive more beautiful wallpaper from Your 4 Walls
Recap on brand:
This wallpaper is from UK brand Your 4 Walls, which offers a huge variety of beautiful wallpapers. The designs of wallpaper include Brick, Concrete, Florals, Palms trees, Feathers and many more. They also offer cushions, bedding, chairs and more.
The wallpaper shown is ‘Floral Blaze’ in Ochre Yellow. The quality of the wallpaper is beautiful. It’s nice and thick. My mum liked working with it as she put up the wallpaper.
I picked this wallpaper as I’m obsessed with Ochre and I get Japanese vibes from it 😊
AD Grey paint from Frenchic Paint in shade Gentlemen’s Club Trim Paint. This took two coats of paint to cover. This is Chalk paint and so no primer or sanding is required, unless you have textured patchy previous paint on the furniture. This was a beautiful paint to work with and the brands paint brushes work so well – I thought all paint brushes were created equal but they are not. The brushes are really soft and so the paint glides well. See my DIY highlights for the link to the paint. Commission is earned.
My new kitchen is fitted – hurrah. Just got a few finishing touches to do.
I got these good size jars for my birthday from a wonderful friend. They are from Rockett St George. These are to store my fur baby snacks – yes they deserve their own jars. All of them are generous sizes.
