Friday's Letters #2

The sun has finally appeared here in Scotland! And unfortunately this has resulted in a lack of blog posts on my part ... oops! It's really is a rare occurrence here so I took advantage of it! Anyway I am off to Belgium with a group of university friends tomorrow! I am so excited!!! So there will be a little break in posts for another week ... I know, I know sorry guys! But, when I get back there will be lots of photos and a few reviews of products I am taking away with me. In the mean time here's my letters!

Dear Scotland- You have finally blessed us with a week of amazing sunshine! The sun really shows off what a beautiful country you are and I remember how lucky I am to live here. Try and let the sun shine for as long as you can! 

Dear Family- Being home from University has really made me appreciate having family around me all the time and I love you all.

Dear Car- Having just past my driving test I really appreciate having you, our cute little red fiat, to drive around in! Although I am being used as a taxi service by my sister! 

Dear Best Friend- I don't even know what I would do without you. I have missed you so much being away from each other at university but I can't wait to go on holiday with you this summer! 

What have you guys been up to? Let me know!

Just Grapefruit Arran Aromatics Review

I love candles! Always have! But living in university accommodation all year where candles are banned has meant my I couldn't burn any of my beautiful candles for a whole 9 ish months! However, this means I have come home to a room full of unburned candles to burn through.

This is my favourite spring/summer candle that I have bought many times. It is a lively fruity smell without being over powering and too sweet. I hate those sweet smelling candles that have any kind of cupcake or marshmallow in their name, they make me feel so ill. But I love soft fruit scents, spices and woody smells, really any of the Jo Malone candles will do me! This candle is a cheaper alternative and on a student budget is the perfect candle I can burn all the time without feeling like I am just burning money! 

It also comes in a nice glass container which is heavy enough for it to feel quite expensive and looks nice on my vanity. Unfortunately to my distress this has been discontinued but I have got my eye on the Green tea and Fig candle for when this runs out!

I would definitely recommend Arran Aromatics if you are looking for lovely candles that won't break the bank. 

What do you think about candles? Do you love them or don't really see the point? Let me know!
