Blogmas Day 8 – Favourite festive candles.

Hi everyone, 

I hope all is having an amazing Saturday! 

Today’s blogmas post is sharing with you all my five favourite festive candles !! I just love candles, I love lighting them up and leaving them on whilst I work on my laptop! They just add to provide a sense of relief and relaxed feeling in me! So below you will find two candles from Yankee, and 3 which were handmade. Two years ago I had gotten these candles from Kandle Handmade Scented Candles meaning before I left for Stirling and had loved some of her scents.

At the moment she stopped making them but I love her scents!! And I guess maybe you can find these in other candle places. If that makes sense! I only have Creme Brulee left and I just don’t wanna burn it cos it’s just amazing and they really fill the room up with their amazing scent!! 

#1 Creme Brulee – warm creamy vanilla custard pudding drenched with creamy buttery caramel sauce.
#2 Cinnamon Sticks – has an intense aroma of freshly ground cinnamon bark. 
#3 – Baked Apple Spice – warm spiced apple fragrance and this blends together with notes of clove, cinnamon and ginger, sweetened with maple syrup and vanilla.
#4 Christmas Spice – It is a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, basil, balsam, fir and warm spices. 
#5 Christmas Cookie -Buttery rich, vanilla scented, holiday sugar cookies.

The last one is the one I am burning right now!! But I love these scents for the Christmas Time! They are just warm, calming and wonderful scents for Christmas Time!!!

What are your favourite scented candles for the holidays? Let me know in the comments down below! Thank you all so much for reading!!!

Blogmas Day 4 – How I wish I could decorate for Christmas…

Hi everyone, 

I hope all is well and you are having a lovely Tuesday! So today I thought I would start up the blogmas posts specifically focusing on Christmas, because I think it’s about time! 

At home, we kind of haven’t decorated yet. Usually we would decorate on the 8th December, that’s our Christmas tradition of decorating. Yet, as the years went by, decorating was done less and less. Losing somebody close to your family, can do that. Why should I decorate when that person’s gone? That’s a question I am sure that a lot of people ask when losing someone close to them and Christmas becomes another normal day of the year. 

Yet even this being so, I try my best to bring that lost Christmas spirit back into our house. Even though I do not do this in a pushy, non-forceful way. I usually decorate in my room little bits but I take it as my role to do the Christmas Tree. But I haven’t done that yet and so this post is if I had my home, what would be my favourite decorations to put up. I hope that makes sense, in my mind it does anyways. 

#1 The Christmas Tree 

I couldn’t choose between these two but I guess I would want it a bit big, and I like the ones that are readily covered with snow. And I love the idea of putting silver or gold bobbles or ornaments hanging on the Christmas tree. I also prefer that gold light wrapped with it. I would place it either near a fireplace or if my future house would have these large windows as the second picture, I would place it right in the corner. I can dream ok! 

#2 Silver Ornaments 

As I said, I would love to fill up my Christmas tree with silver ornaments of different styles, shapes and sizes! I especially love those silver bobbles that come in a glitter style!! I think those are too cute!  

I love these types of ornaments too, those shaped as Christmas trees, or snowflakes or angels. I think with the bobbles of above, they would go perfectly and some gold light! 

#3 Fireplace Decor 

I would definitely want a fireplace to decorate and I would use stockings for sure. I like the idea of white beige stockings but then the traditional red stockings are also cute especially paired with my white Christmas tree !!  I think I would also add some fairy lights with how the fireplaces are decorated in the photos above! 

#4 Christmas Wreath 

Now I don’t like the normal green ones that we all see but like i enjoy a white Christmas tree I like white Christmas wreaths as well. But then I would love to see red included in it too! And what would be perfect is if like that last image above, they would include fairy lights as well!! I think that would be perfect! 

#5 Candles … and lots and lots of Candles!! 

Ok so first we have those candles which are decorated so cutely, I would put these all over my house!! I love all these above, they’re all so different and beautiful! 

But then I would also have those scented ones from Yankee, which smell perfectly!! These are the scents I would love to smell! These all must smell so christmass-y!! But then I actually got the Christmas Cookie and it’s burning at the moment whilst writing this post! I love it!! 

So you could say that this is the only Christmas decor put up in my room haha!! And that’s it for my if I would have my own house, what Christmas decorations are a must for me! I hope you enjoyed reading, I hope to put up a blog post on my actually Christmas decor later on in my blogmas journey!
