Hello, I’m Rachael and i’m addicted to buying candles….
Everytime I go shopping or anywhere near a shop that happens to sell candles..I can’t leave without having at least one in my shopping bag.
I thought i’d show you guys the candles that i’ve picked up over the past week. Yes that’s right 3 candles in a week. Actually it was over about 3 days but hey..don’t judge!
Laura Ashley:Rhubarb and Vanilla Boxed Candle//Link: I picked this up at the Laura Ashley sale, for about £9.40, which can seem quite pricey but it was originally priced at £14.00, so I thought it was quite a bargain! It smells so yummy, Vanilla with a hint of Rhubarb. The packaging is quite plain, but looks really classy. I’ll definitely be saving the glass packaging when the candle is finished.
Homebase Ocean Breeze Scented Candle//Link: Can I just take a second to mention that this candle was £4 for 20 ounces, that’s incredibly cheap!! It is definitely a bathroom candle, probably because of the colour and the name, haha CREATIVE! I’ve read the reviews and they’re really mixed, some saying the smell doesn’t last long and others saying the smell lasted for ages..so we’ll see. Either way for £4 you can’t moan. I may have to pop back to Homebase and pick up some others..
Barton Grange Village Candle Cranberry Grapefruit//Link: This smells AMAZING! Definitely the yummiest one. The Grapefruit is really strong with just the right amount of Cranberry, which gives it a really zesty kick. I’ve read lots of reviews on the Village Candle’s and they are all really positive, so i’m excited to give this one a go. I’ve already eyed up my next Village Candle which is Lemon Pound Cake, which smells JUST like Lemon Drizzle Cake. YUM.
I’m saving all these candles for when we move into the new house, so i’ll keep you all posted when i’ve given them a fair trial. We move into the new house on the 30th August which i’m so excited about!!
Are you a candle-a-holic? Which is your favourite candle/scent?
