Hi PrettyGlossBlog readers!

One of my favorite (and affordable) home decor items from my #Christmas2015 shopping is the Mandarin, Clove & Cinnamon Scented Candle from Marks & Spenser. As the New Year #2016 is just a day away I thought it was the best time to light up this beautiful candle and feel relaxed during this holiday season.

Mandarin, Clove & Cinnamon are the scents which have always been associated with Christmas and the holiday season. Warm winter aromas of spice cinnamon, peppery cloves, nutmeg and zesty sweet mandarin bring much need comfort and cheer to these cold days and nights. Looking at the peaceful candle nicely lit on my bedside is such a treat. I love to snuggle in my bed with a book in hand and can spend an entire day like that. What I love most about this candle is that it is hand filled with selected decorative natural botanical which are slightly visible through the candle wax. Not to forget the beautiful aroma of this candle while lit, has amazing aromatherapy properties. It works wonders for me! At a price tag of £ 7.50 £ 3.50this candle is a beautiful decor item for your space.  

Which was your favorite holiday candle this year?

Mandarin, Clove & Cinnamon Scented Glitter Tealights | #Christmas2015

Leave a Comment

Hi Lovelies,

In the last post I shared how I spent (maybe a bit too much) on Christmas decor online this year. One of the things that I really wanted to have for decoration this time around are scented candles! I love scented candles - so much so that I am not too sure if I would pick a favorite perfume or a scented candle if I come across such a situation; it will be that difficult to decide! Scented candles have such amazing aromatherapy properties and these work wonders for me! Next time you cannot decide what to buy for your lovely lady, try a scented candle.

I came across these super adorable Mandarin, Clove and Cinnamon Scented Glitter Tealights with red glitter at Marks & Spencer online. They also had Frankincense and Myrrh Scented Glitter Tealights which had gold glitter on them as well as Winter Scented Glitter Tealights with silver glitter. I personally liked red ones as these went with my Christmas tree red baubles and rest of the decoration theme around the house. Red is also a very radiant and warm color and that is what I wanted, to create a cosy ambiance around the house. And, did I mention these smell like heaven!? Though I do adore the fragrance of Frankincense as well, I believe the beautiful aroma of zesty sweet Mandarin, peppery Cloves and spice Cinnamon is a very comforting which really set the mood as this is one of the signature Christmas scents. Once lit, these are relaxing yet festive to look at and a wonderful way to cheer up during these cold days and nights. Mandarin, Clove and Cinnamon Scented Glitter Tealights come in a pack of twenty and at £ 5.00 is a really good purchase.

Set of 2 Reindeer Mugs | #Christmas2015


Hi Lovelies,

It's the most wonderful time of the year..

Set of 2 Reindeer Mugs

Last night I unpacked my favorite Christmas Tree and assembled it into one piece (am I late?). I still have not put up all the decorations yet but wanted to, at least place it where it should be at this time of the year. I ordered a lot of Christmas decorations online this season, I may have overdone it too but its Christmas after all! That's what we do at this time of the year. I know I need to be modest and have a kind heart towards the less fortunate but I am sure spending on the festivity during this time makes everything so magical and worthwhile. Do you agree? 

Over the weekend, I received my first order of the season, and I would love to share the details with you. I ordered a Set of Two Reindeer Mugs from Next online which I think are really cute, festive as well as economical. At £ 7.00 these seemed like a good purchase. These came in two colors - red and white. Both have similar pattern of reindeers printed on them. However, on the red mug the reindeer is white in color with a faded design and on the white one it is printed in red. I love this contrast of red and white and cannot wait to use these for my morning coffee!

How do you like these? Let me know.

"Modern Muse" by Estee Lauder | Fragrance


Hi Lovelies!

Behold - my favorite fragrance of 2015!

"Modern Muse" by Estee Lauder is a lush floral, woody fragrance that stole my heart! In my recent post I mentioned how the brand Estee Lauder brings sweet memories from the past. My first ever designer fragrance was Intuition which is one of my favorite fragrances as well. I still remember how I enjoyed every bit of that fragrance. It was a spicy, oriental fragrance which complimented by personality and gave me a lot of confidence. Later on, I "developed feelings" for the brand and tried many fragrances like Pleasures, Pleasures Intense, Pure White Linen which are light and easy-to-wear.

"B e   a n   i n s p i r a t i o n ... "

Love at first sight - the bottle is cute as a button. Perfectly dressed for all times, the bottle has a cute 3D bow in navy shade on its spray. It is a transparent bottle otherwise and comes in a modern and beautiful blush pink box with the bottle draw on it. Notice how the bow looks so real with that gold shade! The bottle itself is such an attractive addition to your vanity.
Be an inspiration. Experience the fragrance that captures your style, your confidence, your creative spirit. An alluring contrast of sparkling florals and sleek woods. Two distinctively different accords - Jasmine Accord and Sleek Woods Accord - provide an intriguing dual impression. It's a true innovation in fragrance design, as complex and fascinating as the woman who inspires it. - Estee Lauder

The new fragrance concept by Estee Lauder is based on the dual impression of two contrasting accords - floral and woody. I personally love woody fragrances but this unique blend of sparkling florals and sleek woods is as sensuous as you can imagine. The first ever spray I made on my wrist once I un-boxed the bottle of Modern Muse by Estee Lauder took me years back to my school days instantly. I still, to date, have not forgotten the beautiful and warm fragrance of my favorite flower, Sweet Peas which were in abundance at our school garden. I would walk around that areas multiple times just to smell the sweet fragrance of these spring blooms. Though Modern Muse does not smell much like Sweet Peas, it sure brought back those exciting memories. Personally, I would prefer to keep this fragrance for spring time but I love to admit that I had to put away my Coco Mademoiselle just to enjoy this scent a bit more. 

Modern Muse by Estee Lauder is for a confident, inspiring and independent woman. She is soft and strong yet dynamic. Without saying a word, she inspires everyone with her presence. To be honest, I can wear this fragrance everywhere - office, parties, date, dinner, formal events, even to bed! A tiny spray on my wrists before going to sleep and I wake up smelling like heaven! Did I mention it is also one of the few fragrances I received most compliments on? Yes and that too for the opposite sex. *ahem* 

Dating Tip: Spray your hair brush with a spritz of your favorite fragrance and then brush your hair with it for that lingering fragrance. 

Did I convince you enough?

I cannot begin to say how excited I am about today's post! How many of you pretty ladies would admit that they always dream of that perfect fairy tale wedding day! While the wedding gown has and will always remain on top of THE most desired item of your big day, looking for bridesmaid dress is an equally challenging job that would definitely give you a few sleepless nights. And before you even begin to think that you have ample amount of time to search for those perfect bridesmaid dresses, the big day will be just around the corner! I have personally experienced this on my sister's wedding where I could not get everything done even an hour before the wedding reception. In the end ,I attended the reception without having any nail polish on and makeup retouches - imagine that!

Not only this, you get to pick from beautiful contemporary shades of colors along with traditional ones. Each dress is made with craftsmanship and details that will give you not just a beautiful bridesmaid dress but also something that you can re-wear later on as well therefore adding more value to your purchase. Having said that, I did a little search and rounded up a few show-stopping bridesmaid dresses from Aisle Style that I absolute loved!
