Yankee Candles

I absolutely love candles and scents for the home. I have found Yankee Candles in Clintons would you believe. Today I got gorgeous French Vanilla and Clean Cotton Tea Lights which smells just like fresh laundry! I love that they are in these pretty jars too!
These are Americas best loved candles! I can see why, they come in all sorts of scents, like Strawberry Shortcake, Cinnamon, Baby Powder, Beach and tons more! I love them!!! You can actually smell these, I hate when I buy scented candles and you light them and hardly any smell comes out!
I shall be collecting each yummy scent.

The Power of Now- Eckhart Tolle

I have always been into the 'self help' books and I try to think I am quite spiritually aware. So I haven't read anything in quite sometime and I'm having those lost feelings again. So I have picked up a copy of The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. It is about learning to live in the now, not in the past and not in the future. By living and thinking in the here and now we can alleviate some of our (my) problems. I worry a lot about the future and what it holds and I also drag up past events that have scarred me which in turn could prevent me from achieving my future goals.
I think alot, my mind never stops so for me learning to think in the now is pretty helpful.
"You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are!"
-Eckhart Tolle

Bourjois Bio Detox Foundation

A friend of mine at work showed me this foundation this morning and I just had to go out and get it!
It says it is an organic foundation with Chlorophyll which is a plant extract that brings oxygen into the skin and filters out pollution. It promotes a fresh and even complexion and detoxifies the skin.
It is medium to full coverage with a matt finish-sold! I got shade 53 Light Beige. I have super oily skin so when I tried this on the back of my hand I was like wow! Matt central! My friend had it on and was like I don't even need powder! This could be it... the HG... will try this baby out tomorrow and post a pic!
So I tried this out yesterday and got to say I am not impressed! It turned chalky and oily too quickly and totally vanished off my nose! Maybe it didn't like my moisturiser or my powder. I didn't like the colour too much either. Well it was a nice idea. It actually looks ok in the picture but I didn't like how it looked through out the day :-(
