Candle Luuuurve!

Hi everyone,
I want to say thank you so much to all the good wishes I have had on Twitter and Facebook from people, it really means a lot and in no small way has helped me on the way to feeling happier. I have unfortunately had a flare up of rheumatoid arthritis and possibly my mystery anaemia so off for blood tests in the morning (joy!!!).
So I have been developing a serious candle and tart addiction whilst I have been on hiatus (so to speak . For those of you who don't know ('cos seriously I didn't) tarts are highly scented wax shapes with no wick that you heat to release the fragrance in an oil/tart burner. I did tons of hunting around and finally settled on this tart burner as it fitted in best with the style and taste of my d├ęcor.


It was £7.00 including delivery and free simmering granules* (I got lavender and they are amazing) you can buy one from Ebay HERE.

*Simmering granules are coarse salt soaked in dye and fragrance which you warm in an oil burner to give off scent. Again, I had never heard of these!!

I also bought some Yankee candles and tarts, which smell divine and I am sure most of you have heard of, as well as taking a chance on some home made ones from Ebay. I bought my yankee candle at a bargain price off Amazon £10.99 including delivery. Whilst on Amazon I found some mega cheap Yankee tarts too! I particularly love the christmas cupcake one as I only broke a tiny piece off and the smell filled my whole room!! Delicious!!  If you click on my little tart picture below it will take you to Amazon and you can get one too!



Of course the candle madness didin't end there. Off Ebay from a private seller I bought a dewberry candle, which is so adorable in its little jam jar and smells fantastic when lit.


It was £6.99 including delivery and I will definitely be getting some more from the seller who is HERE, I cannot wait to try some of the other scents.

So what have you been doing lately? I love to hear from you all
Take care and don't spend too much




PS I bought everything in this post with my own fair money. I have included affiliate links to products I have bought from Amazon which eventually will help me to keep buying stuff blogging! I actually have made no money from this blog but one day maybe it will happen (a girl can dream right?).
