How did you start your business?
I started my business about 4 years ago, not long after my 1st son was born. I really love burning candles, but I also wanted to make sure I wasn’t harming my family with nasty chemicals, so I decided to do a course on soy candle making and from there, what started as a hobby, gradually grew to the business that it is today. I still love burning candles, so I love what I do, and feel blessed that my customers can enjoy my candles in their home as well!

What is your favourite piece in your collection?
Its hard to say which piece in my collection is my favourite…its like choosing a favourite child! But, I do have favourite fragrances at any given time. At the moment, Im really enjoying Cool Citrus Basil, ( from the Lab Jar range) and Lemon Verbena is always burring at my home, (from the Fowler Jar range).

What is the one song that will get you on the dance floor?
I love dancing, so it wouldn’t take much to make a fool of myself on the dance floor, but Love On Top by Beyonce would probably get me up every time. She is a big favourite in my household, with the kids and I, so we dance around to her DVD all the time!

What is your guilty pleasure? 
My guilty pleasure is 2 squares of chocolate very night, when the kids are in bed. I make a pot of tea and put my feet up, and let the chocolate work it magic! Its the little things..

What inspires you?
My inspiration comes from my addiction to all things interior design! I spend all my spare time scouring the internet for inspiration, reading my favourite blogs & of course flicking through all the home magazines. I make what I love & hope other people  love it too!

Where would your dream holiday be?
My dream holiday would be Italy with my family. We would slowly travel from to toe, and eat our way through all the local produce, drink the local vino, and siesta every day! A girl can dream, can’t she?
