I was married a year ago today. Time has flown by and with the arrival of Baby H, life has been so very hectic but I wouldn’t change any of it! Someone said to me once that being married actually feels the same as being in a long term relationship with someone, and it does feel the same but definitely is like the sugar on the top.
I commissioned some art work for Mr C as a anniversary present and it turns out he did the same for me! Mine is us drawn in the style of The Simpsons – with any future family additions I will the same artist to do us a new drawing! I think it’ll be a cute record of our family.
Turns out Mr C also went for a art, he commissioned a painting of us in a ‘Spirited Away’ scene (a film in case you don’t know, one of my favourites). 1st year anniversary is Paper, so it seems totally appropriate!
Also to celebrate, I have a really cute candle to give away to a reader from ‘Jewel Candle’ – a range of handmade candles which have a piece of jewellery (either a ring or earrings) worth anything from £10-£250 in each jar! So once the wax has burned away you will have a permanent memento!
I have chosen the candle, ‘True Love’ as a prize for one reader (Rose scented) – however, if you win feel free to take your pick from the variety of scents, such as ‘Sweet Cupcake’, ‘Passion Fruit’, ‘Pink Cherry’, ‘Pina Colada’ etc.
The jewellery in the candle is random so a nice surprise, and it takes up to 10-15 hours of the candle burning before the it is revealed (although you can scoop it out with a spoon if you are impatient!). Each piece of jewellery has the price tag attached too so you know the value of it.
See the range of candles here.
Jewel Candle are offering 20% off for Cosmetic Candy Readers – no minimum spend, and can be used on anything from the range, just use the code: cosmeticcandy20
For a chance to win, simply leave me a comment on this post and tell me about the best anniversary you have had - it could be anything, the anniversary of a relationship, someone else’s anniversary, the anniversary of the day you started a new job, etc.
Hope you all have a nice day!
