Fortnightly Favourites #9
Updated: Jul 5, 2019
1. My New Roses
This year I've been making a big effort in the garden. I already had a few rose bushes from last year, but I invested in some stunning David Austin roses when they were on offer at Wyevale.
This last fortnight they've started to bloom in all the sunny weather!
My favourites at the moment are the Desdemona, the palest blush (almost white) rose. And Mill on the Floss, which keeps a sweet fruity fragrance wafting through the garden.
And I've just planted a new climber (The Shropshire Lad) by the fence, so I can't wait to see the flowers on that when the buds come out.
I reuse my Botanical Candle Co empty candle jars as mini vases for cuttings.
2. Skinny Tan
I was headed on a spa day this weekend just gone, and wanted my skin to have a bit of a glow. So I tried out the Skinny Tan range I had recently ordered from, and was blown away. I bought one of the multi-product packs which included the pre-tan primer, wonder serum, instant tanner, 7-day tanner and a tanning mitt. I used the in shower primer and then the wonder serum, jumped into bed, and woke up with a lovely colour and zero tan on the bedsheets. I had so many compliments on my tan all week, absolutely everyone thought it was real. I'll be keeping my glow all summer whilst keeping my skin safe.
3. India Jane Lamps
I cannot get enough of our new India Jane elephant bedside lamps.
I kept an eye on these for over six months, hoping and praying that they'd go into the sale. The home decor gods answered last week and I added them straight to my basket and happily checked out.
They look gorgeous.
I got the shades on sale from Lombok and they compliment them perfectly!
This is one of my all time favourite candles. I was gifted a pomegranate White Company signature candle for my birthday last year and I've been patiently waiting for summer to arrive so I can light it!
It has the most gorgeous fruity, almost citrusy deep scent. Perfect for a summer evening.
5. A New Rosé on the Block
The perfect blush to be enjoying with BBQs and salads this season. New from Tesco, this organic rosé is perfect for an evening with the girls.
Sip sip, hooray!
