THE RE-BRAND: ESSENCE OF HARRIS

 

unnamed (1)

I’m so excited to share this post with you all as I feel like working with this brand sums up perfectly the reasons why I love being a blogger. For those of you who have followed my blog for a little while – you may have read my previous post back in April reviewing Buth Bheag Candle Co.

Since the spring this luxury brand has gone from strength to strength with the help of bloggers and influencers from across the UK sharing the love for their stunning range of products. They have now landed themselves over 30 stockists and two brand new shops.

Sometimes when a project or new venture takes shape and naturally progresses a re-brand can be a really exciting and refreshing way to move forward and celebrate the success you’ve made. When the team announced the re-brand I instantly couldn’t wait to see what this meant for them as a company; I was pleasantly suprised to see that they are still taking their inspiration from their beautiful home of the Scottish Isles by keeping their scents named after the many beaches that make up the stunning coastline.

SENT WITH LOVE 

When I opened the parcel up to reveal the two beautifully packaged items I thought for a moment what good gifts they would make. The re-brand has taken on a slightly more mature, sophisticated vibe.

You can tell as soon as you open the box that it’s a luxury item – from the on trend marble exterior to the minimal, slick glassware. Each and every perfectly executed little detail completely sets Essence of Harris apart from the other brands on the market. Everything down to their scent collections, packaging and brand story is unique and you truly feel like you have a little bit of paradise in your home when you purchase from them.

Each scent collection comes in a different colour palette, each with rose gold lettering which makes the new range ideal for gifts with the festive season coming around.

Another reason that makes this new collection special is the fact they’ve gone right back to basics by discussing how each of the candles and reed diffusers are made on the side of the packaging. Absolutely every single item is hand-poured with love in the Isle of Harris and you can even learn more about the creators of the brand on the ‘Our Team’ section of their website.
WINTER SCENT REVIEW:
SEILEBOST 
EofH_3wick_2048x1365_seilebost_grande

A sophisticated, deep and sensual scent with top notes of pomegranate, plum and rose.
(Black Pomegranate Reed Diffuser, £17. Available at http://www.essenceofharris.co.uk)
Warm, cosy and not too overpowering. It’s also a very natural scent, sometimes in the past I’ve purchased room sprays and diffusers that are way too strong and almost have an artificial scent.
Each of their diffuser ranges come the 100ml size which will usually last for up to 12 weeks. Ideal for Christmas in the living room or bedroom.

PINK SODA SPORT

Yesterday I came home from work to the most generous and seriously amazing delivery from JD Womens! I’d previously seen the likes of Sarah Ashcroft, Charlotte Crosby and Sam Faiers wearing and looking incredible in Pink Soda Sports wear so, I was over the moon to try the sporty gear out for myself!

First off I was stunned by the quality of the fabric used on each of the garments they sent me, the lightweight and breathable material means this collection is ideal for working out on the tracks or yoga mats. Their capsule collection I’ve been wearing really is all a girl needs, sports wear can be pricey and what I like best about this brand is how versatile and durable their pieces are.

So, if you’re looking for some motivational new gym garms, look no further! Read my review below and shop the full Pink Soda collection here.

SUPPORT

All five items of sportswear they sent me fitted perfectly, I (like most girls) find it really hard to shop for sports bras, the cute ones are always too small and tight across the chest and the ones that are big enough don’t provide enough support!
The Pink Soda Sport 2-in-1 Vest & Sports Bra is an absolute must have! Not only is it true to size and caters for bigger cup sizes but also provides lasting support (I’ve worn and washed mine a couple of times now and the bra is still supportive as it was when I opened the box!)

STYLE

I absolutely love the simple and elegant monochrome design of the Pink Soda Contrast Fitness Tights. For me, what I wear when I work out is so important. If I feel confident I know I will focus and work hard to reach my goals, if I’m feeling at all uncomfortable it puts me off my workout completely! After all, there is nothing worse then feeling self concious at the gym. I would highly recommend these sporty leggings to any girl that takes her fitness seriously, the breathable fabric draws sweat from the skin cooling you faster. Plus the hidden pocket in the waistband is absolutely genius – perfect to store your keys and iPod whist you workout.

RELAX

The plush Pink Soda Contrast Hoodie & matching Pink Soda Contrast Joggers are super soft and cosy meaning they’re perfect for both lounging on a Sunday as well as throwing on after swim or gym session. The Skinny fit bottoms are flattering and super comfortable, they fit all your curves exactly how they should do & the simple black and grey design keeps you looking stylish even after a tough workout!
.
MOTIVATIONAL
.

When I first put on the sports bra and matching yoga leggings I instantly felt motivated to hit the gym! The powerful yet girly branding is empowering and infectious, I actually had a  few inbox messages on Instagram after posting a photo of my new goodies from girls wondering where they could get their hands on some Pink Soda!
