Over the lockdown period, my Amazon wishlist has grown quite a bit, from arts and crafts kits, books to read and plant pots for my new houseplants additions. Over the last week I made quite a big Amazon order, finding some gems that I thought would be interesting to share.
First up I have the Beeswax Candle Making Kit that was inspired by a Tik Tok video I'd watched and it looked like fun. Alas I concerned I would be taken back to the times when I'd get a candle DIY kit for Christmas only for it to be absolute chaos of hot wax and wicks. I've already given this a go and I can confirm that it's a lot less messy as no heat is involved, you just use the warmth of your fingers to mould the beeswax sheet into the shape you want - a perfect afternoon activity.
Another craft kit I bought was an Embroidering Kit and within 24 hours I'd not only completed it, but found a new hobby for sure. I shared the results on my Instagram stories, but honestly it was so helpful to have something easy to practice on, so I can try out new stitching techniques. I might by myself a couple more before attempting to do a design of my own on a tote bag.
"I managed to learn four new stitches and finish my embroidering kit in 24 hours - It was a success!"
I've been experiencing with nail art throughout lockdown and thought I'd try something completely different - nail stickers. I added these Summer Dried Flowers Stickers to my basket first as I thought they'd be perfect for the next few weeks paired with a nude polish, but I couldn't resist the Autumn Leaves version too.
I have to mention my Dash Pumpkin Waffle Maker, which I've never had go many questions about after sharing it across my social media. I've already used it quite a lot since I got it a fair few weeks ago, but I can imagine this is going to be a staple breakfast favourite come Autumn too.
I'm very aware that we're in August still, but I couldn't help buying something from my wishlist and it was this Pumpkin Shaped Cookie Cutter. I have plans to make some cinnamon biscuits as soon as September hits and I thought this would be handy to have in my kitchen drawer for when the time comes around.
A couple of weeks ago, my old phone case cut my hand and I realised that it was about time I got a new one. I've been after one similar to the Galaxy Planet iPhone Case for some time and this one is perfect. It's sturdy, comes with a screen protector and looks great too.
After delving into my makeup bag and realising I'd had my beauty sponge for far too long, I thought it was about time I picked up a new one. I've had the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge before and it was a no brainer to pick another one considering how trusty they are.
I also picked up some more Epsom Salts because I wanted to make my own lavender bath soak with the dried flowers I'd got from going to the lavender fields. It worked perfectly and these epsom salts are a great option as you get 1kg for under £5.
