Current Favourite Candles



I always used to be one of those girls who stood there are judged people when they got excited about candles. I could never understand the fascination with them. However I have been quickly converted and now I am obsessed with them. My collection is small at the moment but I know it’s going to grow quickly, the only thing stopping me is the fact that in the UK there is no bath and body works or if they do its ridiculously expensive. Plus I am going to America in a few months so I will stock up on a lot of candles.  Currently I only have two for my bedroom and the one for my office.

  • Watermelon Lemonade– This I got from bath and bodyworks, I was actually surprised with this because I don’t like watermelons at all, but the scent smells so gorgeous I think it’s because it has a hint of lemon. The scent is very summery spring it just reminds me of a warm summer afternoon.
  • Teakwood Myrrh – This I think I got in HomeSense it’s like a home version of TK MAXX, I am so shocked I only heard about it a few months ago from my sister I thank her for it every day . The scent is very outdoorsy, woody and musky think camping and seating out by the camp fire.
  • Vanilla & Saffron Noir – Perfumed Candle– The packaging of this candle drew me to it, I got this in TK MAXX for a way cheaper price than on the official site. I think this is why I love TK MAXX so much. The scent itself smells to me like how a manly man should smell with a hint of sweetness which you get from the vanilla infused in the candle.

What are some candles you can recommend to me? I am eager to expand my collection x

    I’m living vicariously through you right now; I have been out of nice candles for a while now so I will definitely check these out! I absolutely love the Pink Grapefruit Yankee Candle, it’s so fresh and fruity! You can always pick up a tiny one to test the scent for about £1.50, too.

    I don’t buy candles often but I picked one up from Wilkos over Christmas and it was devine, I think it was blueberry and passionfruit, pretty cheap too as it was their own brand but the scent was strong 🙂
