Candle mad.

So anyone who knows me well will know that I have a slight obsession with candles. 
I am forever burning them in my room to make my room smell lovely and look all cosy and cute. Basically, whenever I am in my room I am burning a candle because I love them that much, so I thought I would share with you some of the candles which I am absolutely adoring at the moment!! 

The candle I'm using at the moment is something I got as a Christmas present, it's a small sized Yankee candle which smells like midnight jasmine. It's a really fresh and relaxing smell, and is really nice to have on at night time before going to bed. 

Yankee candles are quite pricy, however they do last a long time and have such a lovely and strong smell that your whole rooms picks up the scent. 

I was also really excited when two new candles arrived in the post last week. Firstly, my rose tea cup candle. This is such a cute little vintage accessory for your bedroom, I absolutely love it. I haven't yet burnt it because I like it that much however it does smell like roses. 
I also always light tea lights in my room just to again have a bit more light and a few more candles in the room. I normally use plain ikea tea lights or lightly scented ones such as vanilla, although I have recently picked up these sweet heart shaped ones which also smell like rosey flowers. 

The other candle I recently ordered was from Lily Flame, these are also quite expensive but also have a very powerful smell and can burn for up to thirty hours. I chose the Mango Fandango scent as I thought it would give my room a more fruity burst to it. I also love the little chunks which stick out into the candles and I think they just look so fresh and soapy. 

I just think if you want to add a more girly touch to your room add some candles it just makes it that extra bit cosy. 

 Lots of love
