Wish list for June

I’ll confess, I’m a secret list writer, I love nothing more than a clean fresh notebook, some coloured pens and a few hours of writing lists! Yes I write lists about everything, food shopping, meal plans, things I need to do, things I need to get for the girls. myself, OH. And my favourite kind of list, wish lists – things I cant warrant spending the money on but in an ideal world where money is free then of course I’d have them and they arent always mega expensive things, just things I see and think ‘oh I’d like to try that’. I also enjoy crossing things off lists – it has even been known that I’ll add something to a list just so I can instantly cross it off as I’ve already done it. Yes I know it all sounds slightly mad and a little like I’m back in school starting a new term with fresh stationary (yes I loved picking out new stationary even as a kid!) but that’s just one of my things.

So I thought it might be nice to share my madness and you never know maybe OH will see this and treat me or just by simply writing about things it will feel as though I actually own them or something. Who knows but it seems like a nice way to spend an hour when there’s nothing on the box, so here goes.

happiness_1_6Neom Happiness Candle

Now candles are nice and make a room feel all cosy of an evening and I dont mind buying a lovely scented one ever now and then, but these candles are £40 a pop which puts them firmly in the luxury category. I can think of a lot of things to spend £40 on so I’ve yet to try one of these beauties but from what I’ve heard, these are amazing, smell gorgeous, burn clean and last ages. Here’s some info from the site;

  • NEOM Luxury Organics candles are made using only vegetable wax and pure essential oils rather than synthetic fragrances so they burn without releasing harmful pollutants, toxins or soot. They work as powerful holistic treatments as you breathe in the scented air so it is best to burn them for between 2-4 hours at a time.
  • Each candle has 3 wicks and burns for up to 55 hours (30% longer than standard premium candles).
  • A sparkling blend of White Neroli, Mimosa and Lemon is combined with natural fresh grass notes to create the awakening of spring.




Liz Earle Botanical Nourishing Hair Oil

I’m a big LE fan and I have dry hair which could do with some time spend on it and some nourishing, so this seems like a winner to me. At £15 for 50ml it’s not silly priced but it’s one of those ‘Do I need it/will it do anything for me’ issues that I often have, if it works then great, if not then that’s £15 wasted. I’d love it if there was a sample size so I could give it a go first. Here’s some info;

Our Botanical Shine Nourishing Hair Oil conditions and smooths your hair for a luminous shine, while protecting against heat damage caused by styling. This multi-tasking oil even reduces blow-drying time.


Lightweight yet luxurious, it can be applied to wet hair before blow-drying or used to add the finishing touches to your style by taming frizz and smoothing the appearance of split ends.


Naturally active ingredients include Kenyan yangu oil, coconut oil and radish seed oil for their smoothing, softening, moisturising and shine-boosting properties.


3036REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask

Now this one I’ve tried before, after reading lots of rave reviews about it I managed to get hold of a teeny sample size and I loved it! It’s like spreading apricot jam all over your face (I kid you not, it smells delicious) and it does it’s tingly magic and afterwards my skin was all glowy and lush. And I admit I loved having to lay on the bed with a magazine whilst I was using it – a lovely bit of me time. The downside is it’s £30 for 50ml! But I like the REN brand, no nasties etc so I would rather pay more for this one then get cheaper version but yikes £30! I guess when you work out how many uses you’ll get maybe once a week of every few weeks it lasts ages but still will be holding off until I can spot it on sale or something. Here’s the info;

  • Removes dead skin cells to renew the complexion
  • Skin looks brighter, healthier, more radiant
  • Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Combats congestion, blackheads and blemishes

Okay I was going to do some more but I’ll stop now before this turns into a whole hair and skincare fest as from looking at my list there’s a lot! I’ll do some more next month maybe and I shall be doing a post about all the skincare/beauty blogs and vloggers I follow. As even though I dont really bother much with make up and I certainly dont buy a lot  but I really do love reading and watching videos and being kept ‘in the loop’ as it were.

So anyway feel free to add anything that you’ve been wanting lately, books, children related, clothes or other.

And enjoy the bank holiday monday!

    Hi Michelle
    I’ve been enjoying reading your reviews etc for a while now. I’m also a keen list writer! I’ve been using Liz Earle for over a year now and like their products too. Just to let you know although I haven’t tried yet but planning because I’ve seen good reviews, looks like good prices for organic products and free delivery just now for new customers is http://www.organicsurge.com if you would like to have a look.

      Hi, sorry I missed your comment until now! I’ve bought from Organic Surge before actually, a scrub, some shampoo and conditioner and tbh I wasnt really blown away by any of it. But maybe I’ll try again if I see a good offer on 🙂

      Thanks and let me know if you try something from there and how it is x

        Thanks for feedback. I’ll definitely be trying some of the products you have reviewed. I like the sound of the REN mask!
