I just had to review this product. I always have candles burning in the house and especially now we are selling, I always have something on. I have been using my melt burner (the type with tealight), but I discovered this product in Wilko and it is amazing.
This wax melt burner is electric so you can turn it on whenever you need to. They are £12.00 from Wilko - I even bought my mum and friend this for christmas - they are always burning these.
They are available in both black and white. The white is beautiful and fits in really well with my decor. The black version is currently on sale and is only £6.50, it is sold out online but you should be able to grab them instore.

I thought I would share my morning makeup routine with you. My make up brushes currently are some from the premium range at Wilko available here.
I always cleanse and moisturise my face and then get ready while I am allowing the moisturiser to sink in.

So today I decided to have a total resort of my wardrobe, list up some ebay stuff and sort out a bag for my local charity shop.

So I make new year's resolutions every single year, but this year they are going to stick! I have delayed the sharing of them as I didn't want to jinx myself - but I feel pretty confident that I am well away with them now!
1. Be thrifty
Okay, so I am not talking about making my own clothes and spending all my life at carboot sales (although I do love a booty), but I am going to clear all outstanding debts and start a savings account for a rainy day. I am also going to cut back on the stupid little things I buy and actually ask myself if I need it or will I wear it?! I have already had a massive clear out of my wardrobe and ebayed the items that I haven't worn in the past few years. I will admit that I have struggled in actually doing anything that involves money so I don't just splurge but I have planned for tomorrow a lovely little day out, lunch and a spot of shopping - I just won't go wild! I have completely stopped buying clothes at the moment (okay well not completely!) - I am waiting until number 2 is completed!
2. Be healthy
Ha. How many of us have said this every single year - we'll start Monday. Every week these words come out of my mouth. It isn't just about eating right, its the whole lifestyle change for me. I think I lost myself a little when i got fat - to be blunt! I joined Slimming World just before Christmas and managed to lose half a stone, which then set me on the right track - I will be popping some pics on of my fave slimming world meals. I will be sharing my journey with you also as I try and rediscover my sense of style!
Whether it be a novel, a blog or a diary entry, I am 100% going to be writing as much as I possibly can. I adore writing and definitely need to be doing it more and more.
So that in short is 2016 for me. I look forward to sharing more and more adventures with you all!

My hubby and I love a Sunday lunch but we both prefer homemade!! We have our fair share of pubs in Hartlepool but we decided to try the Jackson's Wharf pub that has beautiful views over the Marina if you can get seated at the right table.
They are a Marston's pub so you know the menu is going to be okay - its nothing amazing. Standard pub fayre. However, you can always guarantee a lovely atmosphere and a decent meal.
Their menu is two for one so don't go if you have an odd number unless you go thirds on the total price (or would eat two meals!)
So today I decided to go for the BBQ chicken burger and Chris had the Bacon and Brie burger.
Although I am on Slimming World, I still try to enjoy my weekend and so just skip on dessert!
As part of my thrify spending I have been checking out Mr Martin Lewis and his money saving expert tips. I then stumbled onto a #shoeaholics website, here. It is a discount designer outlet, just for shoes.
This is an absolute find for anybody who likes a bit of designer footwear (ahem, me!) and doesn't want to pay those ridiculous prices. See below for the investment pieces I am adding to my wardrobe.
Luckily for you, there is also an extra little discount if you purchase a pair today!! Enter the code EVERYTHING20
