Candle Addiction

Candles used to be something that I'd associated with a waste of money, completely pointless and for old people. How wrong was I!? Maybe because I've grown up a little (?) but candles are now one of my favourite things. I think what's great is that there are just so many scents out there, so you can find a scent that completely suits you. Personally, I love all of the chocolatey, biscuity, sickly sweet scents - which actually gets on some of my housemates nerves as they prefer the fresh, floral smells.. oops! 

I seem to have been buying more and more lately. I think this is partly down the calming placebo effect they have on you, and when you have as much work as I do, that's definitely enough justification! These are just a few of my favourites at the moment :)

This is a Cheesecake Crunch flavoured candle from Flamingo Candles, and I think it's become one of my favourite ever candles. It's smells like sugar and caramel, which is the best combination in my opinion. What's not to love?

I bought this Pineapple Candle after seeing it on Hannah's blog. She is hands down one of my favourite bloggers and I'd been after a pineapple candle for ageees so was so grateful that she'd posted a link to one! This is from H&M but did keep selling out ridiculously fast so I'm unsure whether you'll still find it. It's not scented but it's so cute!

Finally, these candles are from The Lovely Candle Shop on Etsy, and they smell amazing. Pear drops reminds me of the sweets and lime & coconut is a perfect, fresh, spring scent! I used to go to school with the owner (who, by the way, is so lovely), so I thought I'd try them out and I'm so glad I did! You can buy cute little candles, wedding favours, candles for baby showers and candles in vintage crockery. As they are handmade, you can basically pick your favourite scent/message and she'll make it for you! They are also really reasonably priced, so do make sure you check her out!

What are you favourite candles?

I'm still not fussed about candles scents but I do love how they look, even when they're unlit! Especially ones like that pineapple cutie, how adorable! x

Ohh you was so wrong, nothing beats a good candle! Even if they are slightly like burning money! Lime & coconut sounds amazing!
