Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Samantha and I am a thirty something year old northerner living in Essex. This blog is somewhere for me to come now and again where I feel like writing. It might be a coffee shop review, a spa day visit or books I have recently read. I may blog many times a month, I may now blog for months. There is no pressure, just my little space on the internet for me to come and go as I please.

By day I am a digital manager working in marketing. By evening and weekends, I make and sell hand poured soy wax candles and melts – my little side hustle. If that is your thing, why not check out my website at sam + soy or follow my instagram @samandsoycandleco

If you would like to follow me on my personal instagram, you can find me at @samanthazoek. Over there you will most likely find pictures of my cats, or snaps of my food.
