Best Kept Secrets - Seriously Scented Candles

I love the allure of scented candles. Somehow they seem to make a room more inviting; creating a more cosy atmosphere. There are so many candle brands out there with a wide range of scented candles. There are big brands that are quite popular and then there are smaller players and family run businesses who use traditional production and hand finishing techniques. One such brand is 'Best Kept Secrets' who are a family run business based in the town of Morpeth in Northumberland. In addition to candles they also sell natural handmade soaps and reed diffuser sets.

Today's post is about their candles. They have a range of candles called 'Seriously Scented' that are available in three formats - candles in tins, candles in glass and tea light candles. The Candle tins have a burn time of over 50 hours and are available in a number of fragrances like Angel (Honey & caramel with oriental spices), Classic Cotton (Crisp & clean bergamot, lemon, cyclamen & sandalwood), Freesia (Freshly picked freesias, combined with bergamot, tuberose & sandalwood), Gingerbread Cookie (Creamy caramel, mixed spices, ginger & rum) and Parma Violet (Violet, bay & ylang ylang) to name a few.

Aveeno's Daily Moisturising Range for everyday skincare needs

I had reviewed some products from Aveeno's Dermexa range a while back on the blog. That was my first introduction to the brand and both myself and Mr.H had loved the products. Today I am back with a couple of other products from Aveeno; this time from the Daily Moisturising range.

The Daily Moisturising range is formulated with colloidal oatmeal and is ideal for those with normal to dry skin. The range includes around 10 products all of which leave the skin moisturised while protecting against the feeling of dryness. We tried out two products - the Creamy Oil and the Body Yogurt.

On the blog today are a couple of products from the Raining Cats and Dogs collection, featuring the artwork of Helen Russell. Helen is a very talented artist who runs her own creative business and whose quirky characters (Blob Birds, Little Bean Critters, Puffin Cove Colony, Wonder Mice etc.) are very popular. The characters appear both in print and on ceramic and Helen uses these animals and their characteristic behaviours to create lovely scenes.
