My review on the happy scents candle

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog. Today’s blog is going to be very different that I don’t usually write about and that is giving a review on the happy scent candle and I wanted to try something different for a change and let me know if you want me to do more reviews on products like this one or something similar. So grab a snack 🍌/drink 🍹 and get comfortable 🛋, because this blog post will be interesting for you to read 📖.

(DISCLAIMER: This is NOT a sponsored blog post. I purchased this candle from the festival which was displayed in the first image and this is only my opinion on my experience with the candle that I’ve purchased from the stall, in which you can purchase from their website for the any upcoming events and you can also check them out on social media as well in order to keep in touch with them too.)

I came across a stall that sells vegan candles and the yogis: yoga and vegan festival at the AT7 centre on 23rd June and they provide handmade vegan candles and they have a variety of 21 candles to choose as well as providing an option of making a gift set if you wish to do so. The display at the festival shows its simplicity of the products being shown as well as displaying it neat and well organised for the customers and browsers to look at as shown below.

A wide variety of these gorgeous candles 😍

As you can also see that they displayed at some small size candles. However the only available if you are there at the stall and if you are interested in purchasing the smaller ones you have to make a request to them for being adjusted in a smaller size version of the candle however you may need to pay additional cost for the postage and packaging as the larger ones are available for the website that have free postage and packaging. The owner of the stall is very friendly and upbeat about the products she made and sells for all of us to admire for her candles.

Before I can give you the actual review of the candle here’s a quick brief of the company. They are based in Birmingham West Midlands UK, the candles are made with ribbon wick and they are available online for you to purchase which I will put the link below for you to go and check it out.

I only purchased one of her candles and the name of the scented candle that I brought from there is called Thai lime and mango. All I got to say for this candle is WOW. I was amazed with the scent that the candle being lit up, but you might want to wait for it to go into a pool of wax in order for the small candle to give its scent out.

The candle itself being lit up.

It reminded me of a piña colada scent. Due to the pineapple scent that was in the candle and it’s not overpowering nor too sharp for the scents too, which is perfect for me 😊 as you can see above when its lit up. Once the wax is turned into a pool of wax, that’s when you will notice the scent coming out. The large size candle cost £12.95 with free shipping and as for the reed diffusers they cost £18.00 and it’s also the same price for the votive trio gift set that will also come with free shipping.

As for the small candle the cost of the small one is £6.50 plus £3 p+p, however if you want to purchase the small candle, you must make a request in the website if you preferred a small scented candle of your choice and its the same for the wax melts. They come in a pack of 6 and they cost £5 with the £3 shipping too, due to the amount of candle wax being poured into pots.

Please take precaution action on where you place the candle, in case it can cause health and safety hazard with fire within the environment as well as being aware for those who have asthma or have a similar breathing difficulty if the scented candle is lit up where you want to experience the aroma of this candle and if there are children or pets around you, please make sure that the lit candle is further away from them in order to avoid any accidents that might occur in any circumstance whatsoever.

My overall experience on using this candle has a been absolutely amazing and the scent of this candle is so divine enough for me to even fall asleep and listen to some spa music in order for me to relaxed and calm to enjoy smelling this awesome candle.

How social media affected my body confidence and self esteem

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog and today’s blog is going to be on how social media affected my body confidence and self esteem in both positive and negative perspective and yes unfortunately this also includes Instagram and how it really affected me in a negative way along with other influential people that helped me realise that I don’t need to be the next someone else and be inspired to be myself without worrying about anybody else. So grab a snack ? or a drink ?and get comfortable ?, because this one will make you think ? before you react on social media and outside of social media too.

(DISCLAIMER: This is only on my point of view on how social media affected my body confidence and self esteem. It is NOT a way of promoting any body shaming activities to those who are currently having or going though the same issue as I am going through by scrolling through social media and we MUST love ourselves for who we are. No matter what other people say about our appearance as well as being true to ourselves)

This all started off when I was going through social media, particularly with Instagram and while as I was scrolling though on there I noticed something that made me become conscious with my body and that was seeing other models that we normally would see on social media and seeing Instagram models is one of them. Witnessing those girls on Instagram made me have low self esteem on myself and they’re clearly showing off the ideal body figures, from enhancing their features with plastic surgery to creating the ideal relationship with another model being accompanied with in order to create an illusion of the perfect life ?.

What made this situation even more worse for me is seeing those skinny women who posing with attractive men trying to sell a fantasy to the general public and that alone made me from having mild self esteem to gaining low self esteem and I ended up having a negative experience on accepting myself for who I am and loving myself for who I am ? as well as trying to step outside my comfort zone with my fashion sense and ended up being body conscious about my own image.

However social media is not always a negative thing for me, in fact it could be really positive as well. One day I went on Facebook and I witnessed Ashley Graham giving a speech towards young girls on her own life story and how she made it through as a plus size model and her speech alone make me feel accepted for who I am and it’s not just her alone that helped me realise that I need to love myself as all the other people that I found all the social media including Nabela Noor, WhatLauraLoves and fullerfigurefullerbust. After seeing those women on social media and seeing the confidence that they got have given me the inspiration to be myself again and they also inspired me to make me feel good and that I don’t need to change myself in order to fit into the “ideal body figure” nor moulding into society when I can learn to stand out in front of the crowd.

Embracing my uniqueness in front of the mirror ?.

Here are the links for the inspirational people who have inspired me to be myself at all times:

My experience at the Ansty social club

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog and today’s blog will be on my time at the brain tumour support Christmas meal ?at the Ansty social club and what me and my family have been doing at the Ansty social club along with what we ate there and the outcome of it as well, so grab a snack ?/ drink?and get comfortable ?, because this one is going to be a fun one to read.

DISCLAIMER: This is NOT a sponsored blog post. Everything on this blog post is 100% has been purchased by me and my brother. 

We were so excited on that day to go for the Christmas meal before the new year arrived. My brother gave the order on what we wanted for the Christmas meal. On that day, all of us were told to wear something Christmasy including jumpers as you can see on this pic below.

On the left is my brother Arvin, our mum in the middle and myself on the right.

On the other pic below is the complete outfit that I wore for the Christmas meal from head to toe. (Sorry I couldn’t find another tall mirror as this is the only mirror that I can find and it’s only in my dads room as well as the bad picture quality too.) I got the boots and the skinny jeans are from yours clothing and their jeans and boots are absolutely amazing and it made me look taller than I anticipated. The Christmas jumper however I got it from peacocks and this Christmas jumper is so soft and comfortable to wear along with a cute design which is sewn in with sequins and are designed it self looks so adorable too ☺️. I also wore my NYX metallic liquid lipstick in biker babe and this shade is so beautiful and it gives a festive vibe to the look too.

My entire outfit ? (Sorry for the bad lighting)

Me, my mum and my brother arrived at the social club and the setting of the club looks so amazing and very low-key at the same time too. There were some Christmas music being played there and there was also a slideshow based on the photos that were taken for the brain tumour support and we did in Coventry throughout the year. What’s that up with the drinks there and there were a very limited variety of drinks to have and all of us have gone for water rather than red and white wine that was provided for us on the tables as well as the bar being available for drinks too.

The Devon crab cake ?

I’m going to start with the starter and my starter was the Devon crab cake and the presentation looks amazing and the taste of the crab cake is astonishing and lovely too ?. My mum and and brother had the parsnip soup as a starter and they both loved it as a vegetarian/vegan starter to have.

Turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings displayed ☺️

Then we had the main course and my main course was the turkey with stuffing and all the trimmings available for me to have and honest with the turkey is amazing and the stuffing was tasty to have and the vegetables were awesome. My mum and brother had the chickpea and sweet potato curry with wild rice and there were some mixed feelings with the vegetarian/vegan main course. My brother liked it, however my mum thought it was too tomatoey and needed more flavour into it, but apart from that they enjoyed it ☺️.

A slice of indulgence from the soft chocolate cake?

The dessert I had was the soft chocolate cake with light espresso sauce and that dessert itself is so divine that taking every bite is worth every moment you take a bite out of it ?. Even the presentation itself looks so exquisite and elegant as well. Sadly my mum and brother didn’t have the desert there because they decided not to have any but my mum did share some of my desert instead and she liked it too.

My overall experience with the brain tumour support Christmas meal at the Ansty social club has been exquisite and fun at the same time. I almost forgot there was also a raffle for us to enter, unfortunately neither my brother or I didn’t win anything but the biggest prize that we both gained is donating the money to charity and that is the biggest present that we got ever. ???

Here is the website for the social club below:

Esquires coffee time

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog and today’s blog is going to be a review on a café that I went to called Esquires Coffee and also meeting Coventry bloggers for the first time so grab a snack ? or a drink ☕️ and get comfortable ?, because this blog post is going to be something interesting for you to look at.

I also wanted to mention that they are an award winning community coffee shop and they have branches across the UK as well as the Coventry branch are celebrating their 10th birthday at the Coventry Transport Museum.

Steven Prime became the owner of the café at the age of 23 and has served the Coventry community for 10 years. He was named the HSBC Midlands and North Wales franchisee of the year 2012 and BFA HSBC UK Young franchisee of the year 2013 ??????.

The entrance of the café was truly amazing and it’s extremely cosy, warm and inviting along with the images being based on the history of Coventry including the rover article and vintage imagery being displayed on the walls if you walk further towards the other part of the café.

While at the cafe, I ordered the honeycomb cheesecake and the snowball hot chocolate, which they are shown in the picture below.

On the left is the snowball hot chocolate and the honeycomb cheesecake is on the right)
The honeycomb cheesecake on its own ?

So I’m gonna start with the honeycomb cheesecake and the cheesecake I’ve tried is absolutely gorgeous on both presentation and in flavour as well as being so creamy in texture too ?. The honeycomb itself gives it that extra crunch.

A mug of heavenly goodness from the snowball hot chocolate ?

After finishing off the cheesecake, it was time to try out the snowball hot chocolate and the hot chocolate tastes amazing and creamy but whatever you do, don’t leave the wafer biscuit in there too long otherwise it will sink to the bottom and that’s exactly what I did ?.

I literally left the wafer biscuit in the hot drink too long and it just fell apart and ended up in the drink, but apart from that the hot chocolate itself was beautifully executed by the barista.

The prices on both the cheesecake and the hot drink are affordable depending on what you’re ordering from the menu. My overall experience from the café has been truly amazing and I urge you right now to go over there and grab yourself a coffee and the best thing about it is that it’s actually next to the Coventry transport museum and you will love the history behind it.

Here is the link below for the actual cafe:
