If I’m being honest, I’m quite happy being out of London at the moment. I’m home now and I’ve been catching up with a lot of life things – some are fun, some not so much. And one of the fun tasks on my to-do list is to make my flat feel more Christmassy.
As much as I would love one, I don’t have room for a Christmas tree *Sad face*, BUT I have got other small little things to help me dial up the festive vibe such as these accessories which makes me room feel cute
and cosy. I also did a Christmas room tour video a couple of years ago which you can watch here
YANKEE CANDLE COSY BY THE FIRE
But, of course, I can rely on trusty old Yankee Candle to make it smell festive! Beside the lovely cute tea lights from the Yankee Candle advent calendar (which doesn’t give off a strong scent), I’ve got a new large jar to burn. Cosy By The Fire
* was a lovely surprise from the team that represents Yankee Candles. My parcel contained the large jar candle, Green and Blacks hot chocolate (so yum!), mini marshmallows, and a pair of fleecy socks. I’ve been making my own salted caramel with the Green and Black hot chocolate with a sprinkle of pink Himalayan rock salt and caramel toffee sauce, topped with cream, marshmallows and a final sprinkle of rock salt.
Anyway – back to the candle. Cosy By The Fire isn’t one that I would usually go for because I like fruity scented candles but that doesn’t mean I don’t like my new candle. I LOVE it and it’s appropriate for this time of year. It’s spicy, woody, and warm. With notes of ginger, cloves, and orange, it certainly has that Wintery, festive aroma. I always take a candle to my parent’s house on Christmas Day so this is the one I’ll be packing.
