Review: White Ceramic Unicorn Table Lamp – ASDA / GEORGE Home

Hiya girlies… If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I fell in love with a Unicorn shaped lamp in Asda a few weeks ago!

29541477_10215480641473521_6787408516643716517_n

at the time I never had the money on me to buy it as I only popped in for a pint of milk but I eventually decided to treat myself because I thought the lamp was just beautiful, so I went ahead and bought it online a few days ago.

The lamp made from 100% ceramic which has a white finish and it measures 26cm in height, 11cm width, 17.5cm depth and weighs 2kg.

It requires no assembly and batteries are not needed either. Instead it is a low energy LED table lamp which comes with a G4 LED, long-lasting capsule bulb and is sold with the energy class of A+, A++ and A.

Bulbs can be replaced by peeling back the base pad and opening the compartment at the bottom of the lamp. It also has a 1.8m length cable.

The lamp is £22 which I think is totally worth it. It’s so pretty and is the perfect lamp for us unicorn believers. I do prefer it as a decorative ornament rather than a lamp as I think it looks better unlit but it does create a soothing, soft glow which is not too bright when lit – kind of like a night-light. It is absolutely beautiful and I have it on my desk at the moment to create a fun, decorative, magical atmosphere. I may even buy another and place them in my bedroom on my bedside cabinets – both sides of my bed.

I definitely recommend this lamp – I love mine and I’m so glad I bought it!

Where To Buy:

You can buy the Unicorn lamp HERE for £22 on the George HOME website. Delivery is an extra £2.95 for standard delivery which takes about 2-3 days to arrive and it is £4.50 for next day delivery. You could also purchase it in-store – if it hasn’t sold out.

Asda have recently launched a unicorn-themed homeware collection – absolutely gorgeous, I want everything… take a look at the magic HERE.

Lots Of Love

Review: Wickford & Co – Cherry Blossom & Jasmine Luxury Scented Candle Jar

Hey dolls, sorry ’bout being on the missing list the last few weeks but I have had the worst few weeks ever and it has sent me off track,  my laptop decided to break and then my phone broke so I had to save to replace them – it’s been so hard, technology is addictive, right? So, brand new laptop, new phone (which means better photo’s – my last phone was RUBBISH) and it’s bloggy time! I’m just doing a quick little candle review today to get me back into the swing of things…

When I pop into Home Bargains, I always pick a couple of candles up – I love how cheap they all are and they are also great value for money. I picked up a Cherry Blossom & Jasmine large candle jar by HB candle brand Wickford & Co for £2.99. They also have tumblers for 99p, small jars for 69p, votives for about 39p I think as well as wax melts and scented tea-lights. I love Wickford & Co candles, I think I have had every scented candle they have done and I always re-buy them as you can tell by my posts – they are a great alternative to more expensive candle brands like Yankee Candles, which cost a lot, lot more.

WICKFORD & CO CANDLES HOME BARGAINS CHERRY BLOSSOM & JASMINE

The Cherry Blossom & Jasmine candle I bought comes in a clear large jar with a glass lid and it is filled with a sweet smelling lilac coloured wax. There is a clear sticker/label on the front of the tumbler which features a gorge gold Wickford & Co logo and it has a pretty picture of some pink flowers (I think they are cherry blossom flowers?). It also states that the candle will burn for upto 95 hours which is true and I’ve had mine for well over two weeks now and I light it every night.

The jar and the label look quite expensive too and you would never guess by looking at it that it was only £2.99.

When lit, the candle does smell sweet and slightly floral but it’s not an overpowering scent and to be honest I could hardly smell anything at all after a while. Like I have said about the other Wickford & Co Candles which I have reviewed – I’m not sure if it’s a soy wax candle or a paraffin one so I’m guessing it’s made with parrafin wax as it’s much cheaper than soy wax. This candle doesn’t smell as strong as some of the others I have tried but it does look pretty so I will buy it again – but it’s not my first choice candle from the brand.

I love my candles, I love getting all cozy of an evening, watching TV or listening to music with a couple of candles lit – so relaxing.  Wickford & Co candles are right up there with my favourite candle brands, they smell lovely, they look pretty and they are budget-friendly and cheap.

Have you tried Wickford & Co Candles before? What did you think? Yay or nay?

Review: Beautiful Home – Frozen Berries Fragranced Oil Burner Set From B&M

Hey gorgeous girls, I bought this gorgeous little oil burner set last week in one of my B&M hauls and it was love at first sight – have you seen how pretty it looks. I’m a sucker for candles, wax melts, oil burners and fragrance oils so when I saw the Frozen Berries Fragranced Oil Burner Set from the Beautiful Home collection for just £5.99, I had to buy it, even though I have tons of oil burners already.  Can you ever have too many?

B&M BEAUTIFUL HOME FROZEN BERRIES OIL BURNER SETB&M BEAUTIFUL HOME FROZEN BERRIES OIL BURNER SET 1B&M BEAUTIFUL HOME FROZEN BERRIES OIL BURNER SET 223722413_1799381650354516_5027330619065659261_n

The oil burner set comes in gorgeous glittery packaging which is pretty enough to be given as a gift to someone – it’s definitely worth getting a few of these in for Christmas gifts. Inside the glittery box is a gorgeous, creamy-white ceramic oil burner which has heart and star cutouts, 4 glittery tealights and a frozen berries fragrance oil.

Oil burners are easy to use – you just half fill the reservoir at the top with water and add a few drops of the scented oil and then light a tea light and place it at the bottom of the oil burner. The frozen berries scented oil smells absolutely lush. I have also been using this oil burner with some of my wax melts too and I love how pretty it looks, especially at night-time when you can see the tealight glowing through the star and heart cutouts. I really love my little oil burner set and I would definitely recommend it.

Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money.

Where To Buy: You can buy it at your local B&M store for £5.99.

Review: Wickford & Co – Vanilla Snowflake Luxury Scented Candle (99p – Home Bargains)

So in my Home Bargains haul yesterday I picked up the gorgeous Vanilla Snowflake scented candle by Wickford & Co for just 99p. I was looking for some of the large jars,  you know the ones that are £2.99 but they were completely sold out of all scents – they only had these glass tumbler candles left. I love Wickford & Co candles and they are a great alternative to more expensive candle brands like Yankee Candles for instance – which come with a hefty price tag. So, if you have never had one get down to your local Home Bargains and pick some up. They do sell out quite quickly though!

22519194_1787793491513332_6848953623008637684_n22539045_1787793424846672_42333047316060337_o22450133_1787793511513330_2334652127404661639_n

The Vanilla Snowflake candle comes in a clear glass tumbler and it is filled with 3/4 of creamy-white wax. There is a clear sticker/label on the front of the tumbler which features a gorge gold Wickford & Co logo and it has a pretty picture of some vanilla, snowflakes and flowers. The glass tumbler and the label looks quite expensive and you would never guess by looking at it that it was only 99p. When I have used the candle I will be keeping the jar for my DIY homemade candles as it is a good size and looks good. I love to recycle and I love to make my own candles so I keep my used candle jars, clean them up and it saves me a bit of money from buying new jars. Genius, huh?

22491719_1787793648179983_4149831337944883935_n

The candle itself smells like sweet, creamy vanilla and it is just beautiful. The scent is not as potent or long-lasting as Yankee Candles but you can still pick up the scent nonetheless and it makes the room smell lovely and cozy. If your the crazy type of erson who doesn’t actually light your candles and you just use them for display/decoration then these will really look amazing. I’m not sure if it’s a soy wax candle or a paraffin one as it doesn’t say on the bottom like it does with the big jars – so I’m guessing it’s made with parrafin wax as it’s much cheaper than soy wax. It also doesn’t say how long it burns for so I’ll have to put it to the test and update this post when I’ve done so.

22528305_1787793698179978_3435597931420088853_n

You will probably know already how much I love my candles and Wickford & Co candles are up there with my favourite brands. They are so popular and I haven’t met anybody who doesn’t like their candles. They smell lush, they look good and they are budget-friendly and cheap. They really do look and smell pretty and this Vanilla Snowflake candle would make the perfect Christmas gift. I’ll be buying a ton more to hand out as gifts this Christmas.

Oh, and just to let you guys know, although they had sold out of all the other scents – they still had loads of the ‘Halloween’ candles left. You can read my review for it here.

Cinema Light Box Only £5.99 At Home Bargains

So, yesterday I went on a big massive shopping spree in Home Bargains (my fave shop) and I picked up lots of gorgeous things – treats & sweets, a few beauty/hair/skincare products, some craft bits and bobs and a fab Cinema Light Box which I’ve had on my ‘to-buy’ list for quite a while. I bought the Cinema Light Box for just £5,99 and I think it’s an absolute bargain considering they are priced at around £12-£20 or more elsewhere so I thought I’d let you dolls know about it.

22519212_1787712104854804_917547473635614250_n22519506_1787712108188137_6443590683123437180_n

The Cinema Light Box is an LED style light box which comes in an outer cardboard box and it includes 90 changeable plastic letters and symbols. All you have to do is tear off the letters you want to use, take off the protective layer and slide them in to the box to create your own personalised message. It has an on/off switch at the side of the box too. It can be mounted onto the wall as it has two holes either side of the box where you can hang from. It’s also free-standing too so you can stand it up wherever you wish.

22491674_1787712611521420_2457625827487944885_n22450115_1787712614854753_1086890662051908274_n

It requires 3 x AA batteries which are not included. I use rechargeable batteries in mine which last longer and I also have a battery charging plug so I can charge them, which makes life easier no more running out for new batteries. On the back of the box is the battery holder and you will need a tiny ‘star’ screwdriver to screw the back of it off. I used a normal screwdriver at first but it didn’t fit so I had a look in my craft box and luckily found a small screwdriver.

22519529_1787712608188087_6036106410431040210_n

I absolutely love my little Cinema Light Box and it’s in my bedroom right now but I will be going back to Home Bargains to purchase another for my living room. It’s a well made, good quality, budget-friendly A4 light box and measures L 30 x W 22 x D 4.3 cm approximately. Perfect for Christmas, Birthday’s, parties, special announcements or just as a personalised room lamp. Deffo recommend!

Review: Yvettevans – Light Up ‘Hollywood’ Cosmetic Mirror

Some of you may know that I am a top Amazon UK reviewer and because of this I regularly get sent various things to review on Amazon. I love it when I’m sent beauty-related items and I was over the moon when I was kindly gifted this Lighted Cosmetic Mirror from a company called Yvettevans.

I just had to tell you all about it by posting a short n’ sweet review on my blog as I love it so much and thought you guys would like to hear about it.

''''


Thoughts:

The Lighted Cosmetic Mirror arrived in an outer cardboard box and inside was the mirror and a leaflet which tells you how to use, battery installation,  cautions, etc… It also comes with 12V 23A energy-saving and long-lasting batteries installed which can be replaced when needed. The mirror is a small, lightweight and portable compact mirror made with ABS, glossy, hard plastic and distortion-free glass so you can see every little detail on your face. It is a two-sided folding mirror with one side being a light up mirror made with polished glass and the other side is a 2 x magnification mirror. There are four bright LED lights either side of the mirror so eight lights altogether and they can be turned on/off by pressing the touch screen circle at the top of the mirror. The lights can also be dimmed or brightened by keeping your finger on the touch button and they help you to apply your make-up much easier under dark and poorly light conditions.

22406141_1785801275045887_2468069552972498689_n22308877_1785801218379226_731703465072649059_n22366553_1785801148379233_2646190364648194516_n

There are three colours to choose from (white, pink, black), I chose the black as I liked it better than the other colours and thought it looked elegant and classy but the pink and white are lovely too.

The mirror doesn’t look cheap or flimsy and I absolutely love it, I really do. I use the mirror for applying my make-up, contact lenses and plucking my eyebrows and the lights come in handy for me as I have astigmatism of the eyes and myopia so the lights help me to see better. When I’m at home I keep it on my dressing table and it looks very pretty and gorgeous – when I’m on the go, I pop it into my handbag so I can check on my makeup throughout the day and touch up if necessary.

As you can tell I love my little light up mirror and I really do recommend it. I think it would make the perfect gift for girls and women everywhere and the quality of it is very good and it is great value for money.


Where To Buy?

You can get a Lighted Cosmetic Mirror HERE on Amazon UK.

There are three colours to choose from & they were £19.99 but they’re on sale for £9.99.

Same day and next day delivery are also available.
