In the Home : Smelling Fresh!

Gracing the background of many photographs, or flickering away on a vanity in a youtube video, there's no denying that us bloggers/vloggers are a big fan of candles. With such a variety of scents, we really are spoilt for choice. My favourites have to be Yankee Candles though. I always opt for the fresh scents as shown above! Clean Cotton being my absolute favourite! With it getting colder, I feel its more acceptable having candles burning around your home! It always felt a little alien to do it during summer, even though it meant that the flat was smelling lovely! 

Another brand I have been eyeing up recently though are the Lily Flame candles. I saw these featured a lot 'back in the day' when I first started blogging and ever since I've wanted to give them a try! I do admit though, they look too pretty to burn! I love the extra bits of wax on the surface of the candle sticking out.  The packaging for these particular candles are aesthetically pleasing, they would definitely be something I would happily give as a gift! Is it wrong to be thinking about gifts at this time of year... you know... for Christmas?! I want to be really organised this year so I'm constantly looking around for ideas to give members of my family. I know my sister is looking for a new watch, and as much as she would love to get a MK one I don't think my budget will stretch to that! I'd definitely be in the good books if I was able to pull that off! My other sister will be happy with some gig tickets of some sort and my mum something a bit special like Swarovski jewellery. It's always nice to treat your mum! I find shopping for my dad really hard, last year I got him a magazine subscription. I might do the same again this year! It seemed to go down well before! 

What are your favourite candles to burn, have you thought about christmas gifts yet?

  1. Clean Cotton is one of my absolute favourites too! It's so simple but so nice and not overpowering either. I do like the spicier and foody ones around Autumn too, I've got Black Cherry and Honey Spice at the moment :) xo

  2. I love Fluffy Towels, but did not know they did a Baby Powder one - my favourite scent ever! I know what I'm going to buying on Fridaaaaaay!
