Sussex Special Handcrafted Candles are all handmade in the heart of susses, using the best ingredients which are all ethnically sourced by local British suppliers. , they are made in small batches and are hand-poured. They make sure each scent is perfect and are tested and refined only using the finest quality fragrance oil to create the signature fragrance of each candle. The candles are made in transparent glass jars using pure cotton wicks to make the candle. The company make sure that each candle is sent in recyclable plastic-free packaging to make sure that they are playing their part in the environment. They make sure that each candle is free of parabens, sulphites and phthalates without any preservatives, colours or chemical binders. All candles are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. 

Ordering online

Ordering online was simple and easy, the website is easy to use and the layout made things easy to find. I also used the search bar to type in words of fragrance that I enjoy like Vanilla and sweet and it came up with some candles. Sometimes it can seem intimidating ordering online when you have not used a company before, however, I like that they are able to list the ingredients and that they made it easier for me to find my perfect candle before I no what I like to smell. Once I had decided, I was able to add to my basket and then headed for the checkout, going through the check out was simple and quick, which i liked as nothing worse than lots of security and pages too fill in.

I was super surprised by the speed of my delivery, as the package arrived no more than 2days letter. It was hand-delivered by royal mail in my normal post. Due to covid 19 even though it was marked signed for, nothing is currently being signed for, however, he waited till I had picked it up to mark it as delivered. It was well packaged and no signs of damage. 


The candles are beautifully packaged and look beautiful. They also smell amazing too. The glass that is used for the candles and the shape of the jar, make the candles feel luxurious. The candles are easy to light and they burn well. They give off a lovely scent that fills the room. My mum even commented on how she liked the smell and asked where they were from. They also fit in well with any room, so I don't need to worry about them looking out of place. They look stylish and finish off any room. 

I defiantly think that these candles are worth buying and recommend them as gifts for family and friends. No one will be disappointed in receiving these because they look and smell amazing. What's more they are 100% recyclable, vegan and cruelty-free.

Jana Reinhardt Jewellery is made in a cosy shop in West Sussex. They are created by husband and wife who together have over 50yrs experience in making jewellery. They are both qualified goldsmiths and decided to join forces and create jewellery to last, which is fashionable and will be cherished and worn. All the jewellery is made entirely by hand and they prefer not to use CSD/CAM (computer aided design and computer-aided manufacturing), this means that all pieces are unique and are done by old methods of fabrication and wax carving. All the gold pieces are made from 100% recycled golf and also most of the silver is recycled, as they feel that using gold plated is detrimental to both the environment and their health. 

Jana Reinhardt offers a beautiful range of jewellery with many options to choose from. The website offers a large range of options to choose from for any occasion, no matter on age.

 If you have not heard of Airtime rewards then I'm here to tell you about them. Airtime awards allow you to earn money every time you shop with stores that have joined them. You then use the rewards to pay off your mobile phone bill. 

What Is Airtime Rewards?

Airtime rewards is an app which is made by the same people who work with 02 priority, along with the 2 4 1 orange Wednesday app, that a lot of people went on to love. It's downloadable in the app store on your mobile, so this may come under google apps or I phone apps. It's free to download. Once downloaded you enter your mobile phone number in which is on a pay as you go or on contact that you will wish to redeem the money back from. Once this has been done, it will then ask you to add all your card details that you use to shop online and in stores. This will then track your purchase to the shops and online stores. It may take a few weeks to show, but rest assured that the purchase will be tracked, providing your card details are entered correctly. Also from my experience please make sure when a new card arrives they are correct on the app, as I had a new card that had a different number and expiry date. 

How much have I saved since using Airtime Rewards?

Since Joining Airtime awards in 2019 I have managed to make £116.26 just from doing my normal shopping. You earn the rewards by adding your card or cards you normally use to shop with. Then when your shopping online or in-store, airtime rewards pick it up. This has not been a big lump sum, this has been the odd few pennies here and there and sometimes if there are big offers on the app then I have had a lump sum, my biggest was £8. Also, I do not check the app and then shop at stores because of the reward, however, I am aware that some people will check to see what the best cashback rewards are and the percentages for the rewards and choose to shop at that shop. 

The percentage of rewards

The amount of award amount changes every few months and can be anything from around 2% - 5%. There is a number of companies that have joined up the rewards from Clarks, Primark, Misguided, Bodyshop and boots. So why not earn money while doing your normal shopping? The rewards can change from time to time, so you may look at a store one day and find the reward higher or lower, they also have deals on sometimes and two reward rates based on the amount spent on shopping. Obviously, it's pretty clear that the higher the percentage the better the reward.
