I had seen a lot of talk about Moonlight Melts on Twitter & Instagram at the end of last year and they were getting rave reviews.  I knew we were looking for some new melts for the house, we normally have one burning every night after dinner so I swooped in and took advantage of an offer to grab a few packets of Moonlight Melts. The smells I picked are below:   Monkey Farts – Tropical Banana with a hint of coconut and grapefruit. Sweet As Candy – A very sweet fragrance that smells like fruity candy floss. The top notes are bergamot, Sicilian orange and green nuance of fig leaves. In the heart, a thin lily of the valley note enjoys the company of liquorice blossom and red fruits. The gourmand dry down is composed of vanilla, caramel, woodsy and musky notes. Love Potion – A blend of cherry… View Post

Well it’s been a weird and very up and down week this week but I am taking more of the good than the bad from it. I am embracing the fact that I have reconnected with an old friend who I haven’t seen for about 10 years. He’s an incredible guy, who happens to be teaching abroad so while we have been catching up over messages we haven’t got the opportunity to meet up – it’s a very long flight! But despite this we speak daily and share pictures of random pieces of our lives, and it’s just been great to reconnect with someone who makes me happy. I have been working through some personal things over the last week or so, and things have been a little tough, but one thing that has kept me smiling is my Twitter friends. I know some people can’t understand the importance of… View Post

As I’ve been thinking a little more about goal setting in the last few weeks, I thought why not share a goals post on the blog! Hit my first blogging goal of 50 followers. I know it doesn’t sound much to most of the bloggers out there, but it will be my first milestone here on Crooked Bookmark. I’m very close, so if you haven’t already given me a follow why not help a girl out! 🙂 Say yes more! This is a goal I have been working on much more this year, I have often shied away from doing certain things for mostly the reason of fear, and I’ve decided that I need to step out and be braver more often. This is how I ended up at a fantastic Book Launch for the lovely Cally Taylor last month. So here’s hoping many more good things will come my… View Post

So, I thought it was about time I shared a few things about me on this lovely blog of mine! So, if you want to know more about me pull up a comfy chair and grab a drink! I am a Bristol girl born and bred – I don’t have a strong accent though I am happy to say! I am a natural ginger although my hair colour has faded over the year so is now dyed. I used to hate my freckles growing up, but now I love them. One of my favourite things about myself. Twitter is one of my favourite social media platforms – I have met so many awesome people through it and can’t wait to meet more throughout 2018! I do love sharing my photography on Instagram though, it’s a creative outlet that I really enjoy. I’m no good at any other art form so… View Post
