shop small

I’m back with another ‘shop small’ post, and again with FairyMoonCandlesUK. This time, it’s the turn of ‘Enchanted’ (a bestseller)!

Yep, I am obsessed – but also: it was a gift from the wonderful Pandora, (as a thank you for my previous review of ‘Guardian Angel’).

Tell me more about FairyMoonCandlesUK

FairyMoonCandlesUK is a small business operating from Manchester, England. It’s owned by Head-Fairy Pandora! 🧚

All products from this Etsy store are handmade by Pandora herself, organically sourced, vegan and eco-friendly.

What does FairyMoonCandlesUK sell?

The clue is in the name… FairyMoonCandlesUK produces and sells a variety of scented soy wax crystal candles. 💎🕯

With Valentine’s / Galentine’s / Self-Lovingtine’s Day around the corner, this would be the perfect gift! 🎁

Tell me more about the ‘Enchanted’ candle

‘Enchanted’ is a lavender scented rose-quartz candle. As I’ve mentioned previously, rose quartz is the stone of unconditional and universal love…

The aroma of lavender is nicely potent, but soothing. You can keep it open in your room as you sleep. 💤

What’s the packaging of ‘Enchanted’ like?

The ‘Enchanted’ candle came packed in the same way as ‘Guardian Angel’ (the citrine candle I bought las year).

It arrived wrapped in gift paper, tied securely with a cute bow. Also, the bubble wrap underneath (protecting the candle) is biodegradable – so that’s a plus. 🌎 ♻️

In terms of the candle itself, it was identical to ‘Guardian Angel’ in the way it’s presented, inside a metal pot with a transparent plastic lid, showing off the stunning candle.

Let’s talk about the aesthetic of ‘Enchanted’

Like ‘Guardian Angel’, the silver sequins, mini raw clear quartz pieces and dried rose petals are a standard – joined by a light dusting of lavender and a rose quartz statement piece. 🌹✨

I hugely regret lighting my ‘Guardian Angel’ candle last time! So, I’ve learned my lesson.

What’s next on my FairyMoonCandles list?

I’ll continue to shop small with FairyMoonCandlesUK (and other Etsy stores).

Next on my list is FairyMoonCandleUK’s Moonlight candle (including Moonstone), followed by Sweet Dreams (featuring Amethyst). I also plan on re-buying ‘Guardian Angel’ at some point too!

Pandora, thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. Wishing you a successful & prosperous 2021! ✨

Whether you’re living with your significant other or living apart, here are some romantic ideas for you both – to make your lockdown Valentine’s Day special.

Romantic Ideas for those who live together

romantic

Cook a romantic dinner

Now’s is your chance to be Gordon Ramsay or Nigella Lawson…

This time, rather than creating your household staples, push the (at-home) boat out by making a dish you’d usually order at a restaurant. Pull out all the stops, make sure no expenses are spared…

Look, even if it doesn’t taste as good, you’ll have a laugh – and may even surprise yourself!

romantic

Create a spa experience at home

If you can’t go to the Four Seasons, why not bring it to you? Those oils are essential for setting a romantic mood… Dim the lights and just relax.

You could even go as far as giving each other actual massages (keeping things PG)! Pop a relaxing playlist on in the background to really transport yourselves to Zentropolis. 🧖‍♀️ 🧖🏼‍♂️

romantic

Turn your living room into a dance floor

Love to dance? Kick your slippers off, put the music on blast and have yourselves a boogie… 💃🏼 🕺🏻

romantic

Cuddle up and watch a movie

Sort of like Netflix and chill – but where you actually watch Netflix and chill out on the sofa with a blanket and some hot cocoa.

Very little is better than a cosy night in, if you ask me!

romantic

Play games

Board games, video games, ‘How Well Do You Know Your Partner/Spouse?’ games – literally all the games, play them together. If you win, well done. If you don’t, you let them – it’s fine! 😉

romantic

Take a trip round the world without leaving your house

I can’t decide whether this is cute or just torture (and a sure-fire way of giving ourselves FOMO)…

I heard of a couple who did this at the beginning of lockdown in 2020, and thought it was cute. So, maybe you could give this a try?

If streaming footage of an exotic location isn’t your thing, you can just do themed nights – like Italian wine tasting etc. Order all you’ll need in advance and set it up on the day!

romantic

Set up a treasure hunt around the house for each other

Plant little gifts around the house and go in search of them together. Sort of like an Easter Egg hunt, but for two adults celebrating the cherub with an arrow (aka St Valentine).

romantic

Create art together

This one’s pretty fun, like all before it, basically: get arty and creative! Draw or paint each other, do what you have to do… If they’re good, why not frame them to look back on?

Romantic ideas for those who are dating but live separately

romantic

Have the same food or similar delivered

Lay the table, and make your laptop the centrepiece as you Zoom each each other. Pop a candle on there for extra romance vibes…

valentines day

Cook/bake together on video

Cook or bake together on Zoom and then eat what you make. What’s the worst that can happen!? Honestly, I’ve done this before and it’s a right laugh!

romantic

Watch the same boxset/film

Sort of like book club, but for movies and boxsets. Watch the same shows or films (potentially at the same time) and discuss them while you’re watching (or later).

romantic

Crack open a bottle as you video chat

Start off with a glass of wine, and finish off with a coffee…

Let’s be honest, dating in lockdown is far from ideal – but it’s the only thing we have right now… It sure will make us appreciate the time we’ll be making up for post-lockdown.
