What am I doing with my life?! And Milk and Cookies Candles!

Finally!! I tell you what, I’ve been meaning to make these for MONTHS now. Between my cake business and working at Starbucks, being a full time mom, wife, and business woman…my creativity and mental health was suffering in a BIG WAY. So something had to give. That something was unfortunately Starbucks. Unfortunately because that extra cash was great and I loved my wee Starbucks family. But after lockdown, I realised how much I loved working from home, being around for my kids whenever they needed me, and having a semi tidy house. Fortunately…in that after lockdown working wasn’t FUN anymore. People got mean and ugly, and I was so done with it. Since I quit last month I’ve been lazy. Not gonna lie. I’ve been enjoying my new found freedom, having longish lie ins until 8am…pottering about the house, working on MY schedule. My kitchen is finally finished after a few setbacks (that’s another story) and I’m starting to get a proper routine back. So today I got my cakes baked…and I got my candle supplies out. And I got busy. And I enjoyed EVERY moment of it, I mean THOUROUGHLY enjoyed it. And in between the melting and mixing, pouring and moulding, I got the hoover out, I cleaned the bathroom, and I washed dishes. And I felt productive, and content. It’s been some time that that’s gone hand in hand.

The last few days my husband has been on holidays. When he doesn’t do much…I tend to follow the same pattern. So we ended up binge watching ‘The Boys’ on Netflix. Oh my goodness, we LOVED it! It was funny, really funny, and it had its fair share of gore. I found myself gasping and turning away from the screen a LOT. But so so worth it. Anyway, I digress!! At one point we asked each other jokingly ‘what are we even doing with our lives?!’ My husband finally managed to get off his arse and take the car to the garage. I got up and decided to make candles. He text me at one point and asked ‘Have you done anything with your life yet?!’ I just laughed and thankfully was able to text back honestly that yes indeed I was! 🤣

Chocolate Chip was the first one that I managed to make. It was supposed to be Gingernuts but I had run out of my Gingerbread fragrance oil, so that was a no go. Tomorrow I’ll be working on Oreo Cookies and Milk, and Peanut Butter! So watch this space as I will let you know as soon as the new fragrances are here! These babies are 8oz of 100% soy wax and will give you a good 25 hour burn. And a clean burn at that. You can purchase them here Don’t forget to shop local and support all your little businesses. We NEED you!! 🥰❤️ Thanks my loves. Can’t wait to show you what else I have in store for you!! X

Sending much love and light 💓

Wax Melt Sample Box

Hey my loves! How is everyone? Things are still all a bit weird aren’t they?! I’m back to work at Starbucks, and truth be told…I’m not loving it. The company has been GREAT! No complaints there. I’m just not loving the post lockdown bit. At all. I’m not actually loving being back in the outside world to be honest. I got too used to be at home with my babies…and I’ve just really realised that they’re needing their momma now, so much more than I thought they would at this age. And I love it. And I cherish these moments ❤️ I’ve been reading, creating, gardening, and just BEING. And it’s been soooo so good for the soul.

I used my time during lockdown to really focus on my candles and get my ideas and creations to you as well. I’m still working on all my designs, but while I’m doing that…I’ve finally managed a gorgeous sample box to suit every taste!

Each box contains 12 melts of your choice. They’re 2 oz pots, and you can easily get 6 burns per pot. These will make great gifts, or just a great way to sample all of your favourite scents so you know exactly what to expect with my other range of candles 🥰

All of my wax melts are made with soy wax and high quality fragrance oils. They have a very high scent throw that will have your house smelling beautiful. It’s a clean burn unlike many paraffin waxes and if you’re not a fan of having an open flame, wax melts are the best solution to a candle if used in an electric wax burner. It’s a win win really. Gorgeous scents, lots of fragrances to choose from, and affordable too! All you have to do is select 12 of your favourite fragrances, pop it in your basket, and leave the rest to us!

I hope you love these fragrances as much as I do!

To order your very own sample box, just click here and take your pick! Don’t forget to subscribe as I have so much more to show you and I’m just so excited ❤️

Sending so much love and light in these trying times. Don’t forget to stay present and BREATHE! We’re all in this together xx

Valentine Scents

Hey lovers,

I’m slowing down my cake game…yeah yeah, I KNOW! I say this every year, but this year I’m REEEEEALLLY going to focus on this side of my business. The candles, wax melts and smellies. Because I enjoy creating them so so much! I have some ideas for videos for Cakes By Carrie-Anne too and I’ll be including a lot of vegan recipes as well. So I’m pretty excited for that.

My anxiety has been through the absolute roof recently. It’s probably a mix of winter blues, some health concerns I’m dealing with, immigration issues etc. I even started online ordering my groceries again because even stepping foot in Tesco is triggering my anxiety big time. It’s why I think I leave so much to the last minute. I just don’t want to leave the house! I am working on it. All. The. Time. And it’s little wonder that I spend so much time in my bed 😒 BUT! This weekend I am making an ENTIRE range of candles that I absolutely can’t WAIT to show you but I have bigger plans for them, so you’ll not get to see them just yet. I personally think they are so worth the wait though 🥰

In the meantime, I’ve brought you my most ‘Valentiney’ scents and these are seriously not to be missed! They are available in 20cl sizes, as 9cl mini’s and also as wax melts!!

Fragrances include

Red Velvet, Chocolate Cake, Fresh Roses, Marshmallow, Strawberry Wine…AND….no… No there’s no and, that’s it. Those are them 🥰 but they is GORGEOUS!

I am more than happy to make up little gift sets for the perfect Valentine’s present. And I’m all about treating oneself in the process. So if Valentines is just a big hokey marketing ploy to you (agreed, but I do love the cute that V Day brings to the table) but it gives me a chance to get a bit creative too, so I’m totally on board with that. Remember that Valentines Day is all about self love too…SO TREAT YOSELF! And everyone needs some gorgeous smellies in their life 🤷🏻‍♀️❤️ Am I right? 🥰

If you’d like a Valentines Gift box, just let me know what fragrances you’d like to include. Easy peasy squeeze the lemon! X

Back Pain and Blueberry Cheesecake Candles

I’m laying here in pain, on my couch and my mind is in overdrive. It’s maybe one of my biggest flaws. Or at least a flaw of mine that I despise. The most.

I’m in pain because I’m constantly on the go. When I’m not ‘busy’ I feel like I need to be. And I don’t take the time out to properly relax. And when I do relax, the guilt takes over. Like I should be doing something more. It drives me crazy. So I had a crazy busy week working Starbucks, working on my cakes, preparing for a Christmas craft fair, and making candles etc. And my sciatica started playing up. I had my little boy standing on my back and dancing just to ease the pain a little bit. And then my guys, I shivered…yes SHIVERED too hard while selling my cakes at the fair…and I trapped a nerve in my shoulder 🙄

So I’ve taken a couple days off to just properly sit back and try my hardest to just be in the moment.

Tonight though my mind is going back and forth between what I really really want in my life, professionally, personally, mentally, and emotionally.

My husband and I have been closer than ever, and I love that. My kids are growing up so fast and I’m realising that I’m going to miss this stage if I look too hard at my business endeavours. So much of me wants a successful business of my own (which in fairness is pretty successful) but that doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be brick and mortar….just yet. I feel right now that I don’t want to work as hard as I have been for the past 20 years of my life.

I want to be able to say no to that extra shift. I don’t call in sick to work. EVER. So calling in these last couple of days was crazy hard for me. I felt like I was really letting folk down. I feel like I’m not ALLOWED to be ill. Even in the darkest depths of depression I showed up. Because I was always more concerned about someone else’s feelings. And no that’s not a bad thing, but I was forgetting to account for my own feelings, both mentally and physically. And it was the hardest thing to do, but I went home, and I made myself a cup of tea, although in agony, and I rested. And it put so much in to perspective for me.

And I’m such a firm believer in things happening for a reason. And EVERYTHING that I’ve gone through, every little thing, I know happens because it HAS to. Whether I like it or not. So now I’m learning to roll with the punches. To take everything in with grace and love, and understanding. And then watch it all as it develops. Sometimes I enjoy looking over at all the things I’ve done over the years and wonder how much just one tiny action changed my life, or someone’s else’s life, even in just the most minute way. It’s just kinda cool.

But for 2020, I’m definitely going to take more time to read, to meditate, to live in the moment, and to stop working so damn hard all the time. Because where does it actually get us?!

I’m going to take long breaks from social media, and I’m going to re invent myself everyday. And I’m going to keep creating. Because it’s when I’m creating that I’m at my happiest, and most content.

I have a whole new range of candles that I’m developing and I’m really taking my time on these ones. Once they’ve all come to fruition y’all will be the first to know. I’m thinking sometime in the new year. In the meantime, if you’re still looking for Christmas presents, I have lots of fragrances to choose from, and there’s still time, so get to it!!

Below is the link to all my cupcake candles. My personal favourites are Lemon Meringue, Pink Lemonade, and Blueberry Cheesecake…but my list goes on 🙈

Order ALLLL the fragrances HERE!!

Sending you so so much love and light. And don’t work too hard!!! It’s totally under rated 🤷🏻‍♀️💕🔥

Guilt, Shame, Love, and Macramé

The over thinker in me is struggling so much in this world right now. I’m in CONSTANT guilt mode. It’s actually debilitating. I feel guilt about the kind of wife I am, what I feed my kids, what I let them watch, how much time they’re spending indoors. I feel guilt every time I bake a damn cake and it’s not vegan. I feel guilt working at a huge coffee chain and seeing the amount of milk we use, rubbish we discard, and food we sometimes waste.

I feel guilty for every feeling I have that I’m ‘not supposed’ to have. And it’s mentally and physically draining. I honestly don’t know how to deal anymore. I’ve lost so much passion for just about everything. And I don’t want to feel like this. But then the guilt also makes me realise that it’s better than being numb all the time. Because I’ve been feeling a lot of that lately too. And it’s all just far too much for one person to bear. And the problem is I don’t actually have anyone to talk to. Not really. Not anyone that can truly understand what I’m going through. The ones that do understand…they have enough of their own shit to deal with. They don’t need to be burdened with my struggles too. So I write. I write because it’s therapeutic and I get so much out that sometimes I don’t know I’ve been holding back, it makes me re read so I can figure out what I need to do, where I need to ‘fix’ things. It also makes me say no. No to taking that extra cake order on, no to being walked all over, no to going out when all I want to do it stay in and sleep. No for doing anything that doesn’t resonate with my soul.

But also I’m very grateful for what I do have. I have people in my life that truly love me. People that I question their love for me, but my anxiety tells me it’s not true, that I can’t possibly be worthy of their love (I know you love me 🔥🔥 ..I do) , I have the most amazing children, that have such beautiful hearts, even though they can be so mean at times (they’re human too) and I’m blessed with having enough. Enough food, enough money, and enough love. I even feel guilt and shame for having anxiety and depression because I have ENOUGH. I have MORE than enough. But a part of my soul is not with me, it’s missing in a sense, and until I can get that sorted, I’m afraid that all the enough…will never be just enough. Oh trust me, I know how all this sounds 🙈😜

So read if you want, take from it what you want, or totally skim through it if you prefer. I’m just doing me, the best way I know how. I’m just trying to get by the best way I know how. So if this resonates with you at all, it simply means you’re not alone. And there’s a lot of comfort in that. It also means that if you need to reach out, please do so. There’s a lot of love in this heart too.

These past few days have been about reading soulful books, taking long hot baths, meditating, sleeping, and just being more present.

I’d love to say I’m working on some new projects. But to be honest. I’m just tired. I don’t have it in me just yet. I have lots of ideas, and planning a lot of projects, they just haven’t come to fruition yet. But bear with me, they will come.

I have been making macrame lately. I love it because it’s very therapeutic. It keeps my hands busy, it’s 100% natural. And it looks gorgeous when made in to wall hangings, plant holders, etc.

I’m selling these plant holders at the moment for £12 here. I’m so in to the boho chic look right now. I’m going to macrame the shit out of my house , just you wait 😂 Funny how it’s all coming back! I remember these all over the place as a kid. I’m glad they’ve made a comeback. I do think it’s a much prettier comeback. More to do with the colour scheme of the back thens 😂 yes I know my wall is pink, but also, I love a colourful house. Yellow hallways, pink living room, and a lavender bathroom. It’s much prettier than I’m making it sound 😜 But the colours bring me contented ness, and it balances out my current play list which mainly consists of Billie Eilish. So it works 🤷🏻‍♀️

Anyway, the macrame department will get bigger once I finish my grocery bag, wall hangings, and even a little hanging shelf!

So stay tuned 🥰

And all is ok with the world again

I haven’t written a heart felt blog in a while. Mostly because sometimes I feel like if I don’t talk about how I’m feeling, then it doesn’t matter. And it’s not important. And that if I ignore my emotions, it will all go away. And I know how naive that way of thinking is too. But I also know that’s sometimes it’s all I can do.

I’m in my bed already. Because today I’m physically and mentally exhausted. When you’re around negative energy and negative personalities, it just gets way too much. I’m so so tired of letting people/events get to me. I’m tired of people trying to tell me who I am, trying to figure out if I’ve hurt someone because God forbid they actually communicate with me and let me know where I fucked up. I’m tired of people getting angry at me for FEELING. I’m ALLOWED to feel the way I feel. I’m especially tired of caring too much. Of the guilt I feel over every decision, every action, every word. And there’s no ONE to blame but myself. Are you exhausted reading this?! I literally have headaches everyday but these are the things that go around in my head 24/7. I CANNOT stop any of it. I try. I do. I try to read, I try to meditate. Sometimes I play games on my phone just to numb my mind a bit.

Yesterday I lit a candle and lay down and let my mind calm itself, and in those moments, I’m truly at peace. I relax, and I breathe. And I let all the senseless worrying go. It’s in those moments that I can really understand what’s important in life. Sometimes I have to read back on my blogs and realise how far I’ve come. And then I also realise that I’m still at a standstill in so many aspects of my life. Where I realise I very much still live my life for other people. Because I would rather harbour the hurt, then put it all on them. But that doesn’t seem right either. I think this is sometimes just the curse of the empath. And that’s all up to me to change that. I’m just not sure where to get that sort of strength from. Because allowing myself to be do things for me…comes with a level of guilt that kills me. But I’m working on it. Everyday. Every. Single. Day. One day, perhaps I’ll get there. I’ve also been reading a lot of spiritual books, and some really fun ones about making sure we aren’t missing the signs that our spirit guides are constantly sending us. Signs to let us know that the universe ALWAYS wants what’s best for us. If we ask for them, we will get them, and also when we need anything, the universe will always provide, so long as we have faith. So I’m working every day at putting that positive energy out there. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to have my bad days. And just because I’m spiritual, it’s doesn’t mean that I have to take anyone’s shit. People will always be dicks, that’s just a universal truth. But I’m going to make sure I don’t stoop to their level (I’ll try very hard at least) 😜

My favourite candle to use in my meditations is my rose quartz 11:11 candle. I use it because rose quartz is all about the love. And I’m needing a lot of self love in my life right now. And it also smells heavenly. I use essential oils of rose musk, geranium, and Ylang Ylang to fragrance it and dried rose petals on top. You can get your own here! I’m still having a Buy One get One Free offer on my cupcake candles, so be sure to have a look here so you don’t miss out 🥰

(I’m feeling so much more positive after this blog already!! See?! sometimes we just need to write it all down to understand where our triggers are!)

Sending you all so much love and light 💕

Immigration, the Unknown…and super gorgeous Candles

I’ve been noticing a pattern with my meds right now. One day I’ll be as high as a kite, I feel like I can take on the world…and the next. I’m drowning, my anxiety is through the roof and I’m just so weepy. And it’s so irrational, and I know this, which makes it even more frustrating. I’ve been feeling a little more on edge this week because every 2 or 3 years (I actually can’t keep up anymore!) my visa runs out, and I have to reapply for a new visa…or leave to remain…or spouse of a British national.

I feel like I’ve been on literally every single one. And every time after I pay a couple of grand, they’ll ‘let’ me stay in the country because the government doesn’t like keeping families apart….yet I feel like I’ll never get my British Citizenship. Or I face deportation. After we send off EVERY SINGLE piece of bank statements, identity, letters, proof of just about everything…we wait. And wait. And my life is put on hold because I’m waiting on someone, as I some regular person just like you and I, at Home Office to make a huge decision about MY future. And as much as I trust in the universe and that KNOW that everything that will be, will be. I can’t help but shit myself just a bit. I mean….my families future could be in the hands of someone who’s pet might have just died, or it’s their first day on the job and the person training them doesn’t give two shits because they’re leaving that job for their dream job…(this is my mind guys) or they got in a huge fight with their best friend , partner, child, etc just before they left for work. And to be honest guys…I just want to be around my family. I just don’t want to stress anymore about whether or not I’ll be deported. I don’t want to have to dip in to savings or our credit card for that matter to pay a huge sum of money for a ‘sorry, no, we just don’t feeel like you are an asset to our country.

And guys, it’s not even about the money. I have a very healthy relationship with money. Or at least I think I do😏😂 We work hard to feed our family, give them a roof over their heads, live comfortably…and I tend to give the rest away. Because I have got SO MUCH more than I really neeeed. And that makes me sound like I have too much money. In reality, we live pretty much pay-check to pay-check, like most people I’m assuming, but we’ve also got so much more than so many. So we always give where we can. Because we’ve been in the position when starting out as a very new family that we had to scrounge around the house for money for a load of bread. But I also know that if we continue to work hard, and play just as hard, and trust in ourselves and each other, and the universe, the money will continue to come. Because we have more than we need to survive. (Also going vegetarian saves a shitload of cash) just saying…. 🤷🏻‍♀️ chickpeas and lentils are hella cheap! 🙌🏻 So what I’m asking, ever so eloquently, is if you’ve been fancying a gorgeous, one of a kind, sniffy candle…if it’s for Mother’s Day, or just a treat for yourself (because you KNOW you deserve it…my Buy One get One Free offer is still on. Click on all the gorgeous fragrances you’d like and have them shipped straight to your door. Because who doesn’t love a twofer?! It’s a total win win, because you’ll also be helping me to pay my massive Leave to Remain fee! 😬❤️ Thanks my loves. So so much, and more than you know! What are you waiting for?!

Valentine’s Day! And all the fuss 🤷🏻‍♀️❤️🤪😏

Hey my guys, I was going to introduce a new Valentine’s Day Scent…but instead got far too hyped up about Easter. I know, but when you’ve got Easter Eggs staring you down every single aisle in Tesco…Valentine’s Day is kinda left out. Until the week before that is!

I’m not a big celebrant of VDay anyway. I don’t like the hype, I don’t like what it stands for anymore….and to be honest, I’d rather receive a bouquet of flowers on any other day of the year….because then I KNOW that it’s more from the heart than a ‘well Hallmark says I should soooo…’ But I’m a total hypocrite too…because I love seeing all the cutesy love hearts, cakes, and chocolates everywhere. It makes me smile….so what I’m saying in a very roundabout way is that I’ll leave Valentine’s Day to Hallmark….. (although I’m not about to turn down an order for some cute Valentine’s Day cupcakes either) 😉😂

I jumped ahead and ordered some adorable labels from my supplier, and concocted a vanilla and chocolate fragrance….did a bit of clay work and voila!

My Cream Egg Candle was born….and ain’t she something else?! I’m undecided on whether I’ll only have these available at Easter…or all year round. What do you guys think?!! I’d love to hear your thoughts. I don’t think many of you heard about my Buy One Get One Free Promo, so I’ll keep that on my website. Any candle from my cupcake range while quantities last including this new Fragrance. Click this link to order yours today. The offer will be automatically applied at the checkout. Thanks my loves. If you need me, I’ll be making candles….and brownies….or Brownie Candles!! 🤔😍🙌🏻 Stay tuned….I’m always experimenting

Sending love and light 💕

All Natural Crystal Candle Range and Twin Flame Healing 💕

My loves! I’m back with some new candles. I’m a real sucker for crystals, crystal healing, and all natural products. I wear Amethyst and Rose Quartz around my neck all the time, my meditation room is scattered with Citrine, Amethyst, Tourmaline, Quartz and Turquoise, and I am currently taking a course on crystal healing as well. Crystals are calming and beautiful and really make a difference with ALL THE THINGS. My kids have even taken a keen interest. I decided that because I love my crystals so much, and I LOVE aromatherapy, it just made sense to put the two together and develop some candles that help to heal, look gorgeous, and smell amazing as well. I’ve developed 3 fragrances right now and you can order the first one (11:11) here!

This all natural range uses only the best essential oils and fragrance oils and I’ve included a crystal in each candle. Once you burn it down, you have your very own crystal to use as you like.

First I have ’11:11′ my twin flame candle. This candle promotes love in all its forms, as well as self love and also helps call in your soulmate or twin flame. I personally use it with my twin flame healing meditations when I need to send love, healing, and forgiveness to my twin, and when I want to clear any negative energies and vibrations between us. It’s also a way to help my twin awaken, and to remember who and what they are so they can be the best version of themselves. So they can heal, and be happy and ultimately living their best life. It helps align me to unconditional love in all aspects of my life too.

Lately I’ve been using it to send love and healing to a very toxic person in my life. When I need to remember that the bad vibes they’re sending my way, have nothing to do with me. That I need to focus on my own healing instead of taking on their hatefulness, and regardless of how hurtful and petty they’re being…I can send them love and light, and release all the negativity. Because only I have that power over me 💕

Anyway…the candle is infused with rose musk, Ylang Ylang and geranium, sprinkled with dried rose petals and has a gorgeous Rose Quartz crystal inside the candle. It’s also made with a wooden wick so you get this gorgeous crackling effect when it’s lit!! Sooooo so beautiful. So use this Candle with all the love you can muster, then sprinkle that shit everywhere. Because Spirit knows we need it now more than ever. Just LOVE!! Get rid of the need to be right, and the need to have power over others. Because it’s stupid. Just love my guys. It’s so much nicer, and your life becomes so much calmer too.

Next (although not for sale just yet) I have ‘Nirvana’, this candle is scented with Lavender, and helps to promote calm, balance, peace and sleep. I have included Amethyst crystals as they aid with Depression, and in spirituality growth and contentment. It’s an all encompassing and empowering stone that has SO many benefits. I use this one more when I’m taking a bath. It’s where I can relax, de stress and wash away the worries of my day. I use it with my handmade 100% natural Geode bath bombs, which you can order here!!

‘Happy’ is my Citrine Candle. It’s scented with orange and lemon blossom, bergamot and grapefruit. Citrine represents the Solar Plexus Chakra and provides the user with hope, happiness, courage, and warmth. Citrine is also the crystal used for prosperity and good fortune. And who doesn’t love a little extra cash coming in now and then. Kyle thinks I’m nuts, but I do guided meditations on manifesting wealth…and when he’s worrying about money I tell him ‘I’ve got this, I did my wealth meditation’, he gives me an eye roll, and then I get a big order soon after and he just laughs. It’s all about putting that positive energy out there my guys!! X

That’s all for now, but I’m also working on a range focused more for men. I generally really dislike when products are marketed for men or women only…as I prefer wearing men’s deodorant to women’s and I LOVE the smell of aftershave so this next candle is actually inspired by my manager who asked if I had a more masculine scent, like his favourite aftershaves. So of course I had to see what I could do. So far I have ‘Sauvage’, ‘Invictus’, and ‘Angel’.

I think what I love most about them is the simplicity of the design too. A lovely little Silver tin with a watercolour label, and a crackling wooden wick that just looks so homely . I’ll be lighting up my Sauvage candle so I don’t need to be so weird as to sniff my husbands shirt when he’s on night shift and I’m missing him a little more than usual 😅🙈

Anyway, all these candles will be available to order for Christmas, so please watch this space, subscribe and you’ll always be the first to hear about all my new products.

Thanks my loves, sending you all the love and light I can muster! You ALL deserve it 😘💕

Dreamcatchers and Unicorn Candles

Boho Chic Dreamcatcher

Since I’ve been on my spiritual awakening I’ve become aware again of all the things that I’d forgotten in my teenage years. My love and fascination of the spiritual world. Angels, spirit guides, crystal healing, synchronicities, and just all things that are in accordance with mysticism, nature, and pure love.

I’ve been collecting crystals, and using them to heal the darkest parts of my soul, to bring me in to pure light and true self love. This journey as you’ve heard me tell you already has been so difficult as I’ve had to strip away everything I’ve ever believed about myself and the world and slowly, painstakingly, put myself back together piece by piece. By listening to my soul, my identity is slowly showing itself day by day. And the dreams I’ve been having have been so incredibly vivid and really telling me so much about my life path. I don’t often have bad dreams. Thankfully. Most are just incredibly insightful. So I’ve hung my dream catchers above my bed to be sure to enhance my dreams even more!

As far as we know the dream catcher was first made by the Ojibwa Chippewa Native American tribe and were created to keep bad dreams at bay. The good dreams go through the centre of the web, whereas the bad dreams are caught within the weaves of the web. I wanted to incorporate my crystals into the design too as certain crystals aid with sleep and can help insomnia sufferers. As much as I love the traditional look of dream catchers, I wanted to add my own personal flair to them. My designs are whimsical, boho chic and just straight up gorgeous….I think you’ll agree! The tulle, and flowers add a touch of femininity too. And because I’m a crazy animal lover, all my dream catchers are vegan friendly, and the feathers are sourced from birds that have molted naturally. My mom is even collecting the feathers from her gorgeous little lovebird Apple. She’s yellow and orange and is constantly preening. My mom doesn’t have the heart to bin them, so she’s just been setting them all aside. I’ll be making one for her using Apple’s feathers.

Boho Chic Dreamcatcher

The dream catchers are 6 inches in diameter and can be custom made in any colours.  I’ll be adding some cream and neutral colours with groatie buckies too! They start from £36 and you can order your very own here! Also on the agenda this week has been my latest candle fragrance. Bubblegum!! The decorative lid is made to look like the very trendy unicorn cake, and I’m in love!! These are available here as well as at my stall at the Thurso Midsummer Madness from June 22nd-24th! I’ll be selling my cupcakes and other sweet treats there too!

Bubblegum Unicorn Candle

Next up!! Crystal healing candles 😍💕 🔮 Sending light and love,
