My Autumn Candle Collection| Part 1

Autumn means one thing for me...


Candles are everything; I love them all year round but especially in Autumn/Winter. They are the perfect mood setters, and have the ability to transform my room into a cosy, spiced pumpkin, caramel, candy cane or whatever scent you fancy wonderland!

I thought I'd show you today just a few of my favorites I've collated this year so far, and spread some candle love with whoever wishes to read!

This Candle I got from my mum for my birthday just gone, I think it is from Sainsburys which if you're not from England is  British supermarket. It's a vanilla scented candle which sounds boring, but I just find them really relaxing and the smell isn't too pungent. With a lot of vanilla candles I find they're really really sweet smelling and can actually be very sickly, and that's why I really love this one as it's just slightly less over powering! It also has a really cute bow and heart, and well... you had me at bow.

These next candles, I actually talked about in my latest September favorites video which i'll leave bellow; I talk about how I've been putting off lighting them for so long as I never want them to run out! I got these for my birthday last year and they came in a 3 pack from IKEA, each a different shade of brown: Chocolate brown, Tan, and Beige. They all smell the same, they smell so much like those chewy caramel wafers Starbucks do a Christmas so it's really hard resist trying to eat them. These are so good for a cold and rainy afternoon when you need a sweet pick me up scent!

Last but not least: The famous Yankee Candle. I got this as a secret Santa last year (my friend knew me very well) I hadn't actually seen this one before and it really does smell exactly like a candy cane. I think one of my favorite things about it is that it doesn't smell artificial like you would expect a sweet and candy scent to smell like. It's a really lovely fresh, minty, sweet scent and I think i'll burn this a bit more nearer Christmas! Can we also appreciate the seriously adorable label and red colour...

I'm An Adult| My Birthday

This will be the quickest blog post I have ever written as I currently have family round, but...IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!!

I cannot believe my teen years are over, they have gone unbelievably quick. I feel like I've achieved so much in the last decade and I am so grateful for all the opportunities I've been given; from the little  things to being signed to my agency and everything that came along with blogging this year! 

A quick outfit post:

My top I got a present today from my mum, I shan't leave the links as it's rude to look at the prices of items but it's from H&M and I'm sure you can find it on the website pretty easily!

My skirt I bought from Dorothy Perkins last year, I love love love anything a-line!

My shoes are from New Look(they do the best sales ever).

I loveeeeee hair bows so so much as you might see from previous posts, so I was delighted when I opened this one from my sister this morning- Tamika you da best.

I love being a September baby, as it means my birthday arrives just as a/w stock does...I feel like this outfit is perfect from sunny, crisp September days and aubergine is always an Autumn must!!
