Gennyray Candles

Gennyray Official is a Nigerian brand that specializes in lifestyle scented candles.

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.

I was kindly gifted these from Gennyray Official ♥️

Slow Ageing Skincare

Slow Ageing is a London brand that specializes in skincare that slows ageing, hence the name.

They offer a variety of products, which includes face wash, bath essence, body polish and more. The lovely Holly Willoughby even uses this brand.

The product shown is the Slow Ageing Essential Moisturiser.

I’ve been using this as a day cream and I’ve experienced no issues. This is what I would call a reliable and trusted cream. It sinks in so well and hydrates my dry skin.

Typology Paris – Newness

Ive been lucky enough to try more products from Typology Paris and these are hot off the press. They have recently released bodycare…

Upgrading my boudoir 💁‍♀️

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.

Expressive Candles

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 was kindly gifted this from the brand ♥️

Candle Storage

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.

Hair Lovers ❤️

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.
