Candles, Candles, Candles!

I am absolutely obsessed with candles. I love the flickering, dim light they give off. I love all the scents they come in. And call me weird, but I even love the smell of the smoke when you blow them out.

I was never allowed to burn candles in college because of dorm room policies, and my family never burned them too often either. So when I moved out after graduation, I immediately started stocking up! I've taken to lighting a candle or two shortly before I go to bed. I turn the lights down and just watch the light dancing around the room, which relaxes me before I go to sleep. The best thing is when the scent is still lingering when I wake up in the morning!

I get candles from everywhere, and I've listed some of my recent favorites below.
1. Slatkin & Co Cinnamon Nut Bread from Bath and Body Works

2. Mainstays Hazelnut Cream from Walmart

3. Yankee Candle Cherries on Snow from Yankee Candle

Do you like candles? What are some of your favorite candle brands/scents?


  1. I'm all about the Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin from B&BW!

  2. My favorite candles from B&BW this season:
    Cinnamon Sugared Donut (you'd dig this)
    Mint Chocolate Chip (Not out yet... I have a backup from last year)
    Winter (My all-time favorite. I buy it every year)
    Cider Lane
    Marshmallow Fireside


  3. Ahh all of those sound amazing! I'm REALLY gonna have to go after that mint chocolate chip one. :)

  4. There's a peppermint mocha one out now that's pretty similar... It is a bit stronger though, the mint chocolate chip is subtle. See how you like it though!
