You will be notified by email when your order is being processed, this will be when we have viewed your order & printed off your invoice. You will then be further notified by email when your order has been shipped - this is when we dispatched your item . At the time of purchasing, you will have selected a shipping method which gave you an approximate delivery time frame - please do not message me during this time asking where your parcel is. Please check your emails prior to contacting, & only contact re your parcel if it is late, & we can track it for you.
For worldwide orders:-
£12 is the standard charge to every country - this is not an accurate postage quote for each country. When you have ordered, We will get a postage quote & contact you via the email address you have provided at the time of ordering. we will advise you of the postage quote price. If you wish to proceed with the order, you will either need to pay the amount quoted for additional postage, or will be partially refunded if you have over-paid. we will attempt to make contact with you twice re the postage quote, if we receive no reply after 7 days we will fully refund & cancel your order.

If your parcel has arrived & an item is broken, please let me know within 24 hours, as we will need to claim from the postal service who caused the damage.

Why is shipping so expensive?
Very rarely do any of are parcels arrived damaged, which is good for you, & great for us too! All parcels are securely wrapped with plenty of bubble wrap, tissue paper, & are either boxed, bagged, or both! postage companies charge £3.90 for the postage ticket alone, & secure packaging is pricey too, but we would rather your parcels arrive safely.

I want to return my item:-
we do accept returns, but only under specific circumstances.
When we advertise my items, I take photographs of the items from a number of different angles. This is so that you can get the best idea of what the item will look like when you receive it. Obviously this isn't possible with fragrance, so I add a description of each fragrance to describe the scent as accurately as possible.
we will not accept returns if the item is proven to be faulty & this is down to user error. All instructions are provided with your items - these are provided for your safety & should be followed in all cases. I cannot accept any responsibility if you do not read/follow these.
we will accept returns if the item is proven to be faulty - this will need to be discussed with myself, as to whether this is user error or item error.
We will accept returns if you so wish, within 7 days of you receiving the item/s. These must be undamaged & unused. Original postage cost will not be refunded.
Customers are liable to pay for return postage in all cases (unless otherwise stated by us). You must also keep proof of postage as I may request to see this if the returned item doesnt arrive at the business premise. The item/s must be returned in the same condition they were sent to you. Any items arrived damaged/broken will not be refunded.
Refunds will ONLY be issued when the item has arrived at the business premises in a good condition. Proof of the refund will then be sent to you.
I want to return my personalised item:
we do not accept returns for personalised items unless the item is proven to be faulty. A replacement may be offered at my discretion.
If you wish to cancel your order prior to us shipping it, (providing it is not a personalised order) this can be cancelled & a full refund will be issued.

Every effort has been made to photograph our items from a variety of angles, to ensure you get the best possible view of the item before you purchase. If you purchase a Pink/Purple candle or melt, the candle or melt will still be made in PInk/purple, however the shade may slightly different. Due to a few different reasons, we cannot accept liability for small differences in the colour of the wax. Firstly, all our things are hand-made & there will inevitably be slight differences in each batch of candles or melts. We do try our best to 100% replicate, but this is not always possible with the hand-made nature. Secondly, the brightness of your screen could be a contributing factor; along with what device you view our website on. Thirdly, your vision. Not everybody see's the exact same shade of colour.
