Waxing Lyrical

A bubbly bath, a dim-lit room, smouldering incense, some soothing bird-lark, a scented candle.
There are many ways we can all endeavour to relax in these hectic times, but these sweetly-scented candles are certainly my weapon of choice.




These tinned treats are the epitome of relaxation, and I constantly have several dotted around my bedroom, laying in wait for a quick strike of a match and flicker of light.
They are beautifully scented and fill my room with such a soothing, sweet, whimsical aroma which floats around and massages any stress away!
I also find the dancing flame so very bewitching and charming, I find the whole sensory experience such a basic yet joyful form of escapism.
I always buy my candles from a quaint boutique near me, which is a wonderland of trinkets and the unnecessary. I like to try lots of different brands, but my favourite ones are definitely  Lily-Flame.

Tell me lovelies - what floats you away to a fantasy land?

Candles have always kind of scared me because I HATE open flames.. but I bought a few scented ones last week and I think I'm starting to come around to the idea of them!

That Parma Violet one sounds rather intriguing! Think I may just have to check it out!

I love candles! I burn them all the time. My favourite are vanilla ones :) xo

They look so cute!! I personally love sugary vanilla scents the best :) I have such a sweet tooth and if I'm not eating cake I want to smell it...ha ha! I once had a candle from TK Maxx called Birthday Cake, it was amazing! Makes you hungry though ;)

I'm amazed it's taken me this long to find your blog...it's so lovely :) Really enjoyed catching up on reading it today! <3

I am a self-confessed candle fiend, my current favourite is the Dolly Rocker one by Lily Flame, so sweet and girlie. I also love Yankee Candles and Jo Malone, however Jo Malone are generally when I'm at home and not on a student budget!
Am hopping over to bomb's website to have a gander, which are your faves from there?
