I am allll about that home ware at the moment. Me and my boyfriend are moving into our very first flat together that isn't some grimy student hovel in the next month and I am busy collecting little things to make our house a home. So, when Zoella announced that she was bringing a new lifestyle range out I was a little ecstatic, I have to admit.
I've never been a big fan of her beauty ranges, and actually have been so unexcited about them that I have yet to purchase anything. This is really because I've already got so many brands that I've fallen in love with, and so many that I prefer. BUT, this new release was full of totally dreamy products. I love anything that makes a home feel more cosy, and I cannot wait to fill my new flat with plenty of beautiful cushions and candles to make it smell like home. So, you can imagine my joy when I saw that Zoella had a lifestyle range with all of these things in as well as a few more goodies.
The Zoella lifestyle range isn't all homeware (and I feel like I should probably mention this in case you haven't had a peek at the products yet). There are a few bits and bobs of stationary as well as a backpack that you can pick up. We all know I'm a bit of a stationary addict, and as I knew that the Summer #BoxofLame (which you will be seeing on the blog soon *squeals*) was coming out a couple of days after this order, I decided to resist on the stationary front.
So, I should probably talk about things that I actually bought rather than nattering about things I haven't, right? Whoops. Obviously I can't resist a good candle, so I was always going to pick up at least one. As I was ordering online I couldn't get a good whiff of any of the candles before purchasing them, so I had to trust my gut and make some bold decisions. Ultimately it was quite easy as Seaside Stroll and Daisy Picking come in a duo set for £18, which is cheaper than buying any of the candles separately at £10 each.
Daisy Picking is my favourite of the three candles I picked up. It smells like walking into a garden full of flowers just as they're starting to bloom, with pollen in the air and a fresh breeze blowing past. Although I love Autumn, I do think it's nice to have a reminder that things start to grow again and this is what Daisy Picking does for me. Both Seaside Stroll and Daisy Picking have fairly subtle scents, and I haven't quite put my finger on what Seaside Stroll smells like yet! However I think it might have some vanilla in it.
Next I picked up another set. This was the lazy days candle and sock gift set and costs £16. This technically means you are paying £6 for a pair of socks, which is a little pricey, BUT, they are honestly the snuggliest, softest socks I have ever worn. And I have a whole section of my underwear drawer dedicated to soft bed socks, so there is some really tough competition there! Popping these on after a bath has been heavenly, and I felt like I was letting go of my first born when I put them in the wash.
And finally we all know I can't resist a good nap (seriously, at what age does napping on a daily basis become truly unacceptable?!), and so this Dream Maker cushion was number one on my wishlist. This was the only thing that I was 100% sure I wanted from the range, and it comes in at £12, which for a well made cushion is pretty reasonable in my opinion. I absolutely love the colour scheme of it, and it is so soft! As you can see from my pictures, even the cat is a fan of it.
If you fancy watching my first reactions to all of the products, here's a video I filmed for you all!
