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.
The candles shown are the Lavender candle and Grapefruit, Mint and Lavender candle.
Both candles smell lovely and the one that stood out was the Grapefruit, Mint and Lavender candle because I smelt it as soon as I opened up the package. It made me want to light it up immediately. The candle gently fill the area. Unfortunately I couldn’t smell much from the Lavender candle while I had it on but it still added a nice atmosphere with the lighting.
This set is the Frill-trimmed pillowcase and I got them recently for £16 from H&M. They add a little bit of glamour to my boudoir. As soon as they’re back in stock I’ll be getting another set and a pair for my mum.
I decided to give my chest of draws from Made.Com a little upgrade.
I got these cool drawer pulls from Home Luxe Co and it cost approx £70 for the set of 10 and I didn’t mind as it’s elevated the look. Later down the line I may even spray paint them a different color.
Lauren Dickinson Clarke is a U.K. brand that specializes in Expressive Scented Candles and Extraordinary Home Accessories, which includes Cake Stands and Coasters. I spotted one of the candles on TV on the Interior Design series.
Their candles are Cruelty Free & Free from parabens, phthalates, formaldehydes, artificial colourants and other nasties. And the packaging is made from Fine China and gilded with 22 Carat gold.
They are shortly releasing a new candle and I can’t wait to see what it is!
The candles are inspired by real Muses from Art and Pop Culture.
My candle shown is the Punk candle. The Punk is inspired by fearless, front woman Wendy O. Williams. Dubbed the “Queen of Shock Rock”, Wendy was the lead singer of the Plasmatics.
It’s fragrance is woody with amber, earthy patchouli, cedarwood & sheer musk, resting on a base of creamy sandalwood, and punched by notes of saffron & leather.
This candle looks insanely cool and it smells lovely! I will definitely reuse the candle packaging. The lid is so cute too.
I adore candles and I always have a backlog of them. I was storing them at the bottom of my wardrobe, hidden away and I decided to store them better. Candles are key to my self-care and they deserve more than at the bottom of my wardrobe.
I picked up this cute little storage locker from Argos Habitat for £60, which isn’t too bad. I’ve seen the same style locker going for double to price easily so this is a bargain.
I put this together and my dad came to the rescue and finished it off for me because I was struggling.
I have been drooling over the Mason Pearson hair brushes for a while and I hadn’t purchased one because of the price. I happily spend loads of money on skincare etc and I realised I should be investing in my hair brush because I use it every damn day. I got this via Escentual when they had a site wide slight discount.
For awareness, Mason Pearson do not collaborate with bloggers. These brushes are meant to last for many years with care. This brand is known as the Queen of hair brushes and made in London.
Of course I had to pair this beautiful brush with the wonderful Philip Kingsley *Elasticizer hair mask. You can get a Philip Kingsley discount with code BEAUTYADDICT15. Note I make commission on sales. My refer a friend link in my highlights will give first time orders a free Elasticizer worth £36.
One of my perfumes ever is YSL Libre so I treated myself to the Intense version.
