Kiss Air Candle set giveaway

 I love scented candles all throughout the year, but it definitely wouldn't be Christmas without a candle flickering in each room. Whilst I do like the big branded candles I also love finding new, small business candle shops. One of my favourites for candles and wax melts is Kiss Air candles. I am giving away a trio of mini vanilla candles perfect for the bathroom window sill or on the side of the bath.

Once you have burnt the candles the glass jars will still look lovely on display in the bathroom, or you could even have a go at refilling them.

Creating a cozy nook with Bean Bag Bazaar & giveaway

AD - GIFTED Ever since redecorating the living room we've had one of those corners that needs "something" but I just haven't known what to put there. Fortunately Bean Bag Bazaar have gifted me the perfect piece for it. One of their grey lounge chair bean bags. And even better I have a bean bag to give away to one of you so keep reading until the end and enter the giveaway for the chance to win one.

About Bean Bag Bazaar

Bean Bag Bazaar lounge chair


Bean Bag Bazaar make a range of bean bags, foot stools and home furnishings. There is pretty much every size, style, fabric and colour you need to match a piece in with your decor. Everything is designed by British designers and made here in the UK.

My Bean Bag Bazaar lounge chair bean bag review

I have the Bean Bag Bazaar lounge chair bean bag in grey, which fits in perfectly in our grey and purple living room. The lounge chair is in the shape of an armchair and is large enough for an adult to sit in and get comfy. Ours lives in the corner of the living room, turning it into a cozy reading / chill out nook.

It arrives in two boxes, one with the shell of the armchair and the other full of beads to fill it. It is big and definitely needs at least two people to fill it up. The material feels strong and sturdy and the whole thing is really well made. I don't need to worry about finding beads all over or any seams splitting.

Bean Bag Bazaar lounge chair


The lounge chair bean bag is super comfy to sit in. I love tucking myself in to it with a blanket on a night and losing myself in a book there. The shape tucks around you and it's great to curl up in.
As it is so big it's a great extra seat if people come around too, being a bean bag means it's easy to move to wherever we need it. Even the patio in dry, sunny weather!


Bean Bag Bazaar lounge chair


I am really happy with our Bean Bag Bazaar lounge chair bean bag. It has transformed a bare corner into a cozy, comfortable reading nook and makes a great spare seat if we need it too.
If you are looking for a bean bag or extra seating I can't recommend Bean Bag Bazaar enough.

Ion Sei Toothbrush & giveaway

*AD - GIFTED* When you think of your beauty regimen what kind of things spring to mind? Skin care? Make up? The latest eye liner trend? Your teeth will probably come quite far down the list, but they really should be up there at the top! I love the feeling of squeaky clean teeth and the confidence that gives me to smile more. And you can't get your teeth feeling cleaner than with an electric toothbrush. I have been sent the Ion Sei electric toothbrush by Sanyei to trial. Keep reading until the end as there is a giveaway for you to win one of your own.

About the Ion Sei electric toothbrush

Ion Sei electric toothbrush - boxed

The Ion Sei toothbrush has some pretty impressive patent technology. Ions are generated in the central bar which helps suppress bacteria and plaque formation. It vibrates at 31,000 strokes per minute. This means smoother and cleaner feeling teeth over time

Unboxing the Ion Sei electric toothbrush

Ion Sei electric toothbrush - contents inside the box

Inside the Ion Sei electric toothbrush box is the toothbrush handle, two different heads, a charging base / stand and UK and EU adapter.

Whilst it comes with two different heads, a standard toothbrush style one and the spiral head, you can also get a smaller size too.

Ion Sei electric toothbrush - different toothbrush heads

My Ion Sei electric toothbrush review

Ion Sei electric toothbrush - standing on the charging stand

I am using the Ion Sei electric toothbrush twice a day, and have been for the last three weeks. The first few times using the toothbrush is a bit strange. The head doesn't oscillate like other electric brushes I have and feels very gentle on the teeth and gums. Almost like it isn't actually brushing them. But, you quickly realise you don't need to "brush" like a regular toothbrush and it is just a super gentle way of cleaning them. My favourite head to use is the spiral one as it seems to get right in between each tooth. There are three settings, low, medium and high, I personally prefer the higher speed but there is no real reason for that.

Obviously, without going to the Dentist, I can't tell you about the bacteria or plaque levels. But I can tell you my teeth feel incredibly clean, and I am noticing my teeth don't have as much of a coating on a morning.

I really like the charging stand, it's compact, does the job and I like that you can store other heads on there. Once fully charged the Ion Sei electric toothbrush will last 3-4 days before you need to charge it again.

You can get your own Ion Sei electric toothbrush in both blue and white.

My blogs second birthday and giveaway

 So this week my blog is two years old. I can't believe it! Two whole years since I set up my little corner of the internet and started rambling away. Today I am celebrating my blogs second birthday and I have a little giveaway at the end as a thank you for sticking with me.

My blogs second birthday - why I started blogging

I started my blogging journey with a nail instagram account, Hellz Nails  ,6 years ago. Eventually I branched that in to a blog. Nail blogging and nail art was and still is a huge passion of mine. But, after 6 years of talking about nail polishes and "how to" nail art tutuorials, I was getting bored. I want to talk about other things I love. Having such a specific niche makes branching out in to other areas hard. People follow my nail instagram account and blog to see nails and don't want to see other things. So, a second blog had to happen and Helerina Blogs was born. This blog is a "lifestyle" blog. No niche and I can talk about all of my passions and interests. I love all aspects of beauty and skincare, I love travelling and I love food. Here I can talk about all of those things and share my thoughts and feelings.

As is often the case once second blogs are started one of them has to give. Running two blogs and individual social medias for them both is very time consuming. Last year I made the decision to quit nail blogging. My domain expires later this month and I won't be renewing it.

My blogs second birthday - my favourite blog posts

I am choosing six of my personal favourite blog post from the past two years to share with you again today.

  • Firstly, my gin tasting Guinness World Record post. This was the very first blogging event I attended and it was such a good night. Plus I'm part of a Guinness World Record now!
  • This is another blogging event, my meeting Scotty T post. I have been a big Geordie Shore fan right from the beginning so meeting someone I have been a fan of for many years was an amazing experience. I love that I got to take Ellie along too so she could meet him as well.
  • The One Love Manchester post is a blogpost very close to my heart. The awful terrorist attack in Manchester touched the entire world and I was so honoured and privileged to have been able to attend the charity concert for it.
  • I am incredibly proud of my photography in my Wagamama blog post. I had just started taking my DSLR out and the difference in photograph quality compared to my old iPhone photos is so noticeable.
  • We also got to meet Brooklyn Beckham at his book signing event in Manchester. Ellie was thrilled to meet him and I was incredibly surprised at what a lovely, down to earth guy he is.
  • Out of all of my travel posts, Spending a day in Palma is my favourite. Palma is a place that captured my heart. The cathedral and its surroundings is just stunning. We never go back to the same country twice as we like to cross new countries off our list each time. But I could quite happily to back to Palma time and time again.

My blogs second birthday - your favourite blog posts

And from my stats I can also tell you what your favourite blog posts have been over the years. I'm not going to include any posts with a giveaway in this.

Seeing my stats has been quite surprising. I have some high end beauty products posts but the budget, drug store brands seem more popular. I'll definitely be keeping this in mind for current posts.

My blogs second birthday - giveaway

As I mentioned earlier in the post I have a little giveaway to celebrate my blogs second birthday. I want to say thank you to everyone for reading, following and supporting me.

One winner will receive a box full of gorgeously scented things to make their skin and home smell amazing. There are skin care, hair care and bath goodies along with some wax melts for the home.

Kaya Jewellery review

 I have been following Kaya Jewellery for a while and have seen a few bloggers talking about them. So, I was so happy to find an email from them to see if I would like to work with them. Not only do I have a review of their gorgeous jewellery today but a giveaway for you all too.

Kaya Jewellery Infinity Forever set

Kaya Jewellery arrives individually wrapped in a pretty pouch. It is also inside a bubble wrap envelope so really safe and secure during postage. I love the addition of a little handwritten card and silver polishing cloth too.

Kaya Jewellery packaging

Kaya Jewellery Infinity Forever Set

I chose the Kaya Jewellery Infinity Forever set, a silver infinity pendant necklace and earring set. This set is currently £38.95 in the sale (it was originally £42.90).

Kaya Jewellery Infinity Forever necklace

The Infinity Forever necklace from is a .925 staring silver 42cm trace chain (with a 5cm extender) with an 25 x 10mm infinity pendant. The pendant is encrusted with cubic zirconia  stones. It feels a really well made, sturdy piece of jewellery. I really do think it is beautiful! I especially like the length of the chain, it sits in a perfect position and I will be able to layer it with other jewellery.

Kaya Jewellery Infinity Forever earrings

The Infinity Forever earrings are .925 sterling silver studs with a 10mm wide infinity symbol. Like the necklace they also have a band of cubic zirconia crystals. They are super sparkly and as gorgeous as the necklace.

Kaya Jewellery review

I am so happy with both the Infinity Forever necklace and earrings. I love that they are both sterling silver. They are both gorgeous pieces of jewellery that really suit my style and other jewellery and I will get a lot of wear from them. The price of this set and the other jewellery is reasonable I think. Kaya Jewellery donates part of their profits to charity which is amazing and even more reason to buy their jewellery.
