Can you believe we are here again. How the year has flown! Actually flown what the hell, where is my life going.
This years Jersey Film Festival has been and gone, and it didn’t disappoint. It’s one of my favourite things to do over the summer in Jersey!
It’s a free event in Howard Davis Park where they show new and classic movies in the park on a big screen. It is a free event but it’s also for charity so they do go around with buckets so you can donate, but they aren’t pushy. I donate about £4 each time I go. If you haven’t been I urge you to go. It’s a lot of fun, and just cute chill vibes.
One of the best things is that I get to perfect my picnic skills. You may have noticed that my Pinterest has a whole folder dedicated to this subject.
I get all my picnic accessories out, blankets, basket, jars (Reusing shop bought jars are a great idea) . I go all out and do a homemade picnic everyday. If you’d like me to do a picnic series next year let me know in the comments section.
It’s funny because I don’t really pay much attention to the film selection, I just always make sure I go every year, they have upped their film game over the years thought so there’s usually some great films on! I’ll leave a link to there page HERE.
Over the years I’ve become a picnic master, if I do say so myself, and have made a little must have list fo this event.
Visiting Jersey or Guernsey Channel Islands? You need to get on Quids In. It’s essentially a website you sign up to where you can get deals for local hotels, stuff like restaurants, activities and tech.
So I just spent the last 30mins writing a grand oul post on fecking Kota Artisan Candels and of course the laptop decides to save fucking none of it! So here we go for round two.
I love candles, this might be obvious from my youtube videos as I usually have a couple dotted about the place. When I’m feeing anxious I love just cleaning my room, putting on a lovely candle and just breathing in the calming scent of my choice (& occasionally Jareks choice). I’ve become more aware of the different types and quality of candles. Basically I’d like to avoid breathing in crap as much as possible. There are lots of great Irish candles companies, my fav is Celtic Candles, that I miss and I always try and stock up when I go home, but sometimes it’s just more hassle than it’s worth. The moment that pushed me over the edge was when I came home one evening after work to find Jarek had almost used up my fav candle. I was using it very sparingly, and sure enough I came home after a hard days work to find it was almost gone. Lets just say I was not a happy bunny.
Lets go back a bit though and talk about when I first laid eyes on Kota Candles. It was a day like any other… ha ha no I joke. I was on lunch and went to the little Saturday market and happened to come across the stand. I didn’t have much time so I didn’t really get to stick my nose in any, but I liked the packaging and how pretty the petal ones were. Anyway… fast forward about a month or so and while myself and Jarek where out at one of the many summer “festivals” Jersey has to offer. There was a Kota stand so I demanded some candles.
