Yankee Candles :-)

Hi Ladies,

I have always loved yankee candles, I think they smell divine and seem to last for ages! I remember when my friend first got me one as a present (clean cotton - still my favourite scent!) and it was love at first sight :) So, last month I decided to spend the last of my Christmas pennies (thankyou Dad!) on some new candles and a lovely little shade and tray to sit them on.

I got all of these (except the very old candle in the middle!) from Yankee Doodle. They have a huge selection of candles and accessories and I actually got both of the candles in their fragrance of the month promotion where each month they have three different scents at a discount. I always go for the small jar candles and in the promotion these were both around £5.00 - Bargain! As I mentioned before clean cotton is by far my favourite scent, It smells just like freshly laundered clothes, absolutely lovely! the 2nd candle I went for was garden sweet pea which is lovely too - its subtle, sweet and reminds me of spring :)

I have had my eye on the shades and trays for ages, and after browsing through all the different styles I finally settled on these ones. I love the blue glass mosaic, and it complements the decor in my room perfectly :)

Do you like yankee candles? if so, which are your favourite ones?

Have a lovely week!
