Remember those days of haul blogging? We’d receive those student loans, spot a 2-hour lecture ‘break’ in our timetables and head straight to Primark and LUSH for an indulgent shopping trip with money we pretended was ours. Well, it’s been quite some time since then and I very rarely spot a label and decide I must buy all the things.
That is, of course, until I feasted my eyes upon Hopscotch London at the recent Etsy press day.
Hopscotch is a British lifestyle brand, priding themselves on homemade beauty and lifestyle products as well as hosting a delectable range of stationery. Essentially, the brand is a bloggers’ dream. The moment I laid eyes on their soy wick candles, I knew I’d have to scamper on home and pick some up to add to my stocks.
The soy wick candles are some of my favourites from the brand. Beautifully housed in either a small glass jar or a metal tin not unlike a paint pot, the candles are poured in London, wonderfully scented (I can’t wait to get my hands on their Fig & Melon one!) and feature fine soy wax for a cleaner burn. My boyfriend has the Lavender in his room and I have the ‘Sweet’ fragrance at my place.
Another of my favourite new indulgences is the Nourish Bath Salt in Rose + Vanilla. Designed to cleanse, hydrate, balance and nourish the skin, they’re made with a blend of mineral-rich dead sea salts featuring rose petals, rose buds, calendula and heather petals, laced with a comforting vanilla fragrance. A handful of these dissolved in water makes for a dreamy Sunday evening ritual.
Last but certainly not least, I must give a shoutout to their awesome White Glass Reed Diffuser. It comes with their signature Winter Berry fragrance, a gloriously wintry blend cassis and raspberry, with hints of fig, sandalwood and cedar wood. I find it to be a brilliant addition to my room for a modern decor touch and to mask that dreaded puppy scent!
You can also find Hopscotch at Broadway Market, London at weekends!
