Ever since moving into my own home with my boyfriend, I have become so obsessed with buying bits for the house and one of my absolute weaknesses are candles.
I seem to have accidentally bought a LOT of them over the past couple of months and so I thought I’d tell you about some of my favourites! This is also a little sneak peak of my home & my ‘style’ of interior so I hope you like it!
Rituals Sacred Fire Candle: I’ve never owned a candle big enough for three wicks before so this has been incredible to burn; It really releases it’s gorgeous scent of patchouli and cedar wood for a musky, cosy atmosphere. It also has a burning time of up to 70 hours which is incredible and I absolutely can’t wait to use the pot to store makeup brushes after it’s finished. This candle was released as part of the Diwali collection last autumn and so I can’t wait to see what other limited edition ranges Rituals bring out!
IKEA ‘Knitted’ Style Candle: This candle has no fragrance but I instantly fell for it’s ‘knitted cotton’ look. Only problem is it’s SO pretty I don’t want to burn it!
Long IKEA Candlesticks: IKEA are the best place for bulk buying candles in my opinion. I really stocked up last time I went and got some long candlesticks to pop in some old quirky bottles I have. Andrew and I have been trying to build up a really nice wax drips around the bottles for that rustic, shabby chic feel.
Urban Apothecary Bramble Jelly Candle: I’d never heard of Urban Apothecary candles before but they’ve become one of my favourite candle brands; just look at that gorgeous quilted jar for a start (another one I’ll be using for holding brushes when it’s ended)! This candle is part of the Preserve collections which also includes scents like Lemon Curd & Orange Marmalade – delicious! You can see their product range here.
Yankee: I also have to give big praises to Yankee candles as I have loads in every room of the house. My favourites are their Christmas ones, particularly Fireside Treats and Cinnamon Stick!
I’ve really enjoyed writing this post up so let me know if you did too and I’ll show you more of my fav candles! I’d love to know what you’d recommend too, I’m absolutely obsessed (and want any excuse to buy more)!
