Renewing your old candles

As you may know I love a good candle. I love to burn them as well as smell their lovely scents. I also hate to throw away candles where the wick has burnt down but there is plenty of wax left. Last year I found out that there are people on eBay that sell candle wicks on their own for £1 which included postage and packaging. I bought 10 wicks in total and having made about 6 new candles. You can buy the wicks in different sizes.

Gadget wish list

It is not often I do a gadget wish list, infact I have never done one but I do them every month or so in my head. 

Canon - I love the idea of vlogging and have tried doing a little bit on my iPhone but I have massive camera shake.

One wheel missing - suitcase wish list

During my flight to Montreal my suitcase lost a wheel somewhere between London and Canada. When I arrived in Montreal I looked like a hobo with my 3 wheeled suitcase and hair everywhere from having slept on the flight.

A surprise for Gemma Louise

As I have mentioned in several posts and Instagram pictures I loved my Blogger Secret Santa from Gemma Louise. She put so much thought into my gift - I did not open my gift till Christmas Day. I know a lot of other bloggers ripped theirs open as soon as it arrived. I was tempted to do this believe me. My parcel arrived and I posted a picture on Instagram and my Secret Santa revealed themselves. I was so pleased she did and I was super pleased that it was Gemma Louise. 

So as a thank you for sending me such a great box I wanted to send her one back not only because I enjoyed mine so much but because she didn't receive one herself having signed up to get one.

Bath and Body Works Haul

Finally found it! The Bath and Body Works store is not in central Montrèal it is located in a small mall in St Hubert - the next island to Montrèal. It took about 20 minutes to get there by bus. It was just 1 bus there, but we had to take 2 buses back because the route changed after a certain time.

I've been to MONTREAL!

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I have just visited Montreal. As I posted quite a few pictures up of the city. 

I have had a great time out there seeing all the sights and experiencing the coldest snow I have ever seen/felt. Although people told me before I went that it is going to be cold but a different kind of cold. I didn't believe them until I got here. It is definitely cold here, colder than the UK, but the cold does not burn your nose like the cold there. It is strange to say but it is warm when you are out in the snow even though it's minus 8. It's ok when you are inside but getting to inside from one place to the other is where it can be unpleasant, if you stay out too long. I did not leave the house without my hat, scarf, gloves, sunglasses, ear warmer and coat.

Lush Large Valentines Heart Bath Balistic

I purchased the Lush valentines heart in Montrèal. It cost $12, I am not sure if I spent more or less than I would have had I have bought this product in the UK, but I knew that by the time I got back to the UK I would have missed out on it.

Olay body wash with moisturiser

Whilst in the phramacy Jean Coutu, in Montreal, we saw this moisturising body wash and thought we would give it ago as it was on special from $6 to $3. 

The mayonnaise tubs and the moisturising body wash lids have the same dispensers. A line about 2mm wide and 1cm long. It eases spreading, in the case of the mayonnaise and pouring in the case of the body wash.

What I received for Valentines Day

For valentines day I recieved this lovely I love you bracelet in the shape of an envelop and letter. Back in the day when snail mail was a big thing I used to write to my boyfriend, when he went to uni, and be write back. Which is why the letter bracelet is cool. I got the heart lolly pop because I love sweets, who doesn't?
