Bath & Body Works Candle Dupes For Less Than £4!

Now don't get me wrong I do not like being cold at all but I do get super excited when September comes around, it may have something to do with the kids going back to school (thank the lord) but mostly it's because it means that the blankets are coming out, the candles are getting lit and the Autumn decor can finally start to take over the house.

For me a large part of getting cosy in Autumn are the candles, I just don't tend to light them much during Spring/Summer but come September I'm all about it. My favourite candles ever are the amazing 3 wick candles from Bath & Body Works but unfortunately for all us UK peeps they are pretty tricky and expensive to get our hands on, the few that I actually own I bought on Ebay and they cost me with postage around £20-£25 so you can imagine my absolute delight when I popped in my local B&M and found candles that were almost exactly the same as my beloved Bath & Body Works ones.

They have very similar, if not the same fragrances and also have the same beautiful embossed lids which I love as it keeps the dust out of the candles which is so hard to clean out, if anyone has any tips on that leave me a comment please. They have two wicks instead of three which to be honest doesn't make much difference to me and they smell amazing.

They burn nicely and the scent fills the room without being really overpowering, the approx. burn time is 25 hours total which is really good considering (and this is the best part) these candles cost £2.99 and £3.99!! I mean for that price you really can't go wrong.

There were a few different scents available in store but I chose to go for the Pumpkin Waffles and Marshmallow Fireside, they both smell very Autumnal and really get you in the mood for anything involving cinnamon and pumpkin spice lattes. I'm very tempted to go back for more to be honest, I would have bought more than two had my husband not been with me, men just don't get candles do they?

Anyway if you have major candle envy after watching all the American Youtubers hauling their Bath & Body Works candles then get yourself down to B&M and you'll feel better in no time.

Benefits Of Using An Activity Tracker

An activity tracker, also known as a fitness tracker, is a device designed for monitoring and tracking all kinds of data as it refers to fitness.  This includes the distance that you have run or walked, the number of calories consumed, heart rate and sleep quality. Of course, this innovative technology sounds like a great must-have item.

For more information on the best activity trackers check out the Top 10 Best Activity Trackers Review 2017.

Getting Ready For Summer

As soon as we start to get a little bit of warmer weather I stop buying anything Winter related and my thoughts go straight to the Summer time. One item I can't live without during Summer are a good pair of sunglasses, they're something I use so much that I really think it's worth investing some money in a good quality pair that will see me through whether I'm travelling or just spending the Summer at home.

I recently discovered a website that sells a wide range of amazing polarized sunglasses whether you need prescription sunglasses or not, there is something for everyone. Maui Jim sunglasses were created on the Hawaiian Islands to make the colours shine, their sunglasses feature patented PolarizedPlus2 lens technology for brilliant colour so every detail is crisper and cleaner and without glare or harmful UV.
They have different lenses to suit a range of different preferences and they have a great range of frames too, from aviators to classic whatever your style it's covered. I chose the Koko Head style in matte black and I absolutely love them, they're super comfortable and look very on trend, I've had loads of compliments on them already and I can't wait to wear them throughout the year and when we go to Spain later in the year.

You can find Maui Jim on TwitterFacebook and Instagram and you can shop from their website here.
