I’ve had the pleasure of getting two consecutive days off this week (I work in retail, this rarely happens) so rather than waste the time, I’ve made an effort to turn my house upside down, and try to make it a bit more welcoming and cosy. To help with this recently I’ve really got into burning candles, I find it makes my house feel a bit more homey (is that a word??)
When my generic vanilla tea lights just weren’t cutting it I starting buying Yankee Candle samplers (£1.40 - £1.75) but since reading The Sunday Girls posts about Yankee Wax Tarts I picked up a few to try out. They are a lot cheaper than the candles, and cost about £1.20 (I picked up my Christmas Cookie ones on sale for 90p) and burn for about 8 hours.
I’ve got a Christmas Cookie burning at the minute and it smells, amazing! If you like sweet, cakey scents you will love this.
Do you like candles/oils? Are there any that I should check out?
