A few Random Bits....

Happy Wednesday...  how come it's halfway through the week again already??  I'm delighted that mine are all settled back to school and college, and more importantly they are all happy and healthy thank god ! This is just a little random post on a few bits I'm loving right now! 

First up I came across this gorgeous Irish candle Company, well I  have to feed my addiction now and then:) Anytime I spy a new candle brand I'm all over it straight away .This packaging and scent is really floating my boat right now.



Secondly to go with the lighting of numerous candles on a dark evening, where would we be without a few well earned snacks and treats. Chocolate pretzels anyone? I will be putting a few packets of these in the shopping trolley tout suite!



Now I do have a selection of bags for A/W already but I quite fancy a new black one. I have my eye on some gorgeous ones in Brown Thomas but for good quality and everyday use I don't think you could beat this Zara number...

Zipped bucket bag  Zara


Lastly with all the hoo ha surrounding high top trainers, I unearthed my version from the depths of my wardrobe yesterday! Hubs even enquired had I bought new shoes .. .Well they looked brand new as they only saw the light of day a few times when first purchased : ) 







These are by Geox and for someone trying to steer clear of looking like mutton dressed as lamb, I think
  they will do just fine with my black straight jeans or cargo trousers for running around the town! 

Hope you are all having a good week:)

  16. I loved this "random post"! I am a fan of scented candles too, especially from the Italian brand L'Erbolario. I am also overindulging in essential oil burning (mainly lavender). This cozy rituals coming with Autumn make me feel so good...xoxo
