Yankee Candle Dupe? Village Candle Powder Fresh

Yankee Candle Dupe? Village Candle Powder Fresh It’s been a while since I posted a candle review here on Raspberrykiss so I thought it was about time that I shared my thoughts on the Village Candle Powder Fresh large candle which I received way back in December as a Christmas present from Marc along with the Fresh Strawberries Village Candle. Now in terms of appearance the Village Candle Powder Fresh large candle looks pretty darn similar to the large Yankee Candles that are on the market. The jar shape is practically the same and even the label font and image are identical.…

Mr Big Tops Review

Lately I’ve been trying to be really good with my healthy eating and for the most part I’ve been doing really well. I have had a little treat now and again and that’s where Mr Big Tops came into the picture. Not heard of Mr Big Tops? Well it’s a subscription service with a difference that is owned by Richard and Abigail. The idea is that you can get a box delivered to your door that is packed full of sweets that you love. Mr Big Tops have a huge range to choose from and whilst the range is full of…

Sandman Signature Hotel Newcastle Review

On Friday 12th February Marc and I decided to stay over at the Sandman Signature Hotel in Newcastle for an evening to celebrate Valentine’s weekend.

Jelly Belly Hamper

If you’ve been reading Raspberrykiss for a while now you’ll know that I used to enter online competitions quite frequently. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve never been a “comper” who enters every single giveaway or competition going, I’ve only ever entered competitions I’ve genuinely wanted to win, for prizes that I’ve wanted to try or use. Anyone who enters competitions knows that it is a really time-consuming hobby and it is because of that reason why I suddenly stopped a year or so again as I just simply did not have the time. Anyway, over the past month or so…

Fresh Strawberries Village Candle Review

Today I thought I’d review the Fresh Strawberries Village Candle which I received way back in December as a Christmas present. Not heard of the company or wondering how they compare to their identical competitor Yankee Candle? Fear not, I recently wrote a whole blog post about Village Candle VS Yankee Candle where I compare the two, so do be sure to check that out if you are interested. Anyway, back to the Fresh Strawberries Village Candle. This is a 26oz candle that is said to last 170 hours burn time. Pretty hefty claim huh? Although I haven’t been counting hours,…
