Yankee Candle | Spiced Orange

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

As soon as 1st September hit like most bloggers it was autumn in my eyes, I always love this time of year, all the dark cosy nights in with autumn inspired candles, chunky knitwear & plenty of hot chocolates.. cliche I know.

Candles to me are the one thing that instantly makes any room look a little bit more cosier and homely, I tend to ALWAYS have a couple of candles in each room, I blame my mother for that but I was out of any autumn inspired candles so I was seriously lacking those cosy vibes. Of course that had to be dealt with, right?

 I headed straight over to the Yankee Candles and had a good old sniff of them all, Spiced Orange (£23.99) instantly caught my eye with it’s dark orange colour and scent. Spiced Orange has fragrance notes of fresh ginger, juicy citrus, ozone, spicy accord and sugared vanilla. It honestly smells incredible and fills the whole room with a spicy scent.

I opted for a large jar which burns between 110-150 hours, there’s nothing worse than your favourite candle running out after 20 hours. Usually I tend to stay away from Yankee Candles because of the price tag is pretty ridiculous at times but I just couldn’t say no to this!

I’ve been burning this none stop for the past week, it honestly smells incredible and perfect for those cosy cold and rainy days!

Valentines Gift Guide

Last minute Valentines gift buying? look no further!

I am not really fussed for Valentines day, to be honest why do you need a certain day to let your partner know that you love them, although I do love gifts and chocolate, lots of it! My partner is so hard to buy for and definitely not one for soppy gifts, he loves technology so here is a gift guide for both him and her if you are struggling for ideas.

This year I am working and we have the little lady so we will not really be able to do anything special other than a home cooked meal, so we have decided to exchange gifts. He decided to get me a grey leather Pandora bracelet which I been wanting as I lost my one I got for my 21st a couple of years ago, I had also decided rather than just buying any old charm for it I wanted them to mean something. He also bought me a gorgeous silver Openwork Heart charm to go with the bracelet. I asked him what he wanted this year and he really wanted to upgrade his phone to an Iphone 6+ so I paid off his remaining contract and now he is over the moon with his new phone, and I must admit I am slightly jealous.
