Touch of Gold

A few of my weekend buys! I bought some tiny golden earrings at a stall by the river. One pair are little snowflakes, not really the weather for them but I thought they were cute :)  The necklace is for my friend. I find buying clothing and accessories for other people can be quite hard, I can't always tell if it's really their style, but I hope she likes this. I also bought another Stila CC in lillium, that and petunia are my favourite blushes.

You might have noticed, I love figs! This candle smells so divine, I got it as a two-for-one this weekend from Ecoya and it's called Caramelised Fig. I wish I could send this scent through your monitor or something right now because seriously you would love it and my bad iphone pic is doing it no justice at all. If you have not heard of Ecoya, they are an Australian brand that do natural home fragrance, bath and body goodies :) Their jar candles are made from pure soy wax.

I actually have soy wax for making candles in my house. I tried making them with essential oils before but I'm not sure the scent turned out strong enough in the end. Will keep experimenting!

Do you like scented candles? Are there any favourite scents you have?


  1. That's one pretty necklace. I'm sure your friend will like it.

  2. I love that necklace. Ecoya candles are on achica.co.uk atm :)
