Light a candle and chill...

This is exactly what I've been doing lately. Turning on my Macbook, lighting a candle, cuddling up and browsing! Browsing for what exactly? Everything and anything in preparation for moving out!! I've been looking at bed linen, plates, bowls, cutlery, storage boxes etc. Where am I moving? To CARDIFF in TWO WEEKS into university halls. So as you have already guessed, I got into university and I chose to go to Cardiff to study Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies! 
By the captials... I'm guessing you can tell I'm EXCITED!

So this really isn't much of review post of a new product or a OOTD, but a simple post showing you my favourite Yankee Candles that I have been burning for the past few weeks!


Fluffy Towels - This is a gorgeous fresh scent that smells exactly like clean washing on the line!


Here I have Mango Peach Salsa, Vanilla Lime, Sandalwood Vanilla and Country Lemonade!
As you can see I love sweet and fresh scents, that brighten up my cosy room. These scents are perfect for these summer months but I really need to start getting some warmer ones ready for autumn and winter at university!


This is Winter Wonderland, I had this last christmas and I love it. I love the china setting that it came with!



Also here I have Island Spa and Mandarin Cranberry, again two very sweet but fresh scents in my collection!! Each of these individual candles get burnt in my glass jar in the first picture which I got for £3. 

Sorry this is such a short post, but I am soo busy preparing for university! It is so strange having my pay  
at the end of the week and usually spending it on new Zara bags or jumpers from Topshop. Now I'm spending it on cushions, plates and tea towels? Seriously!! 

I'm really enjoying picking up things for my room at university and I am planning on doing a university room tour for my first video on a new project I am planning. So keep tuned for that!

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day! Good luck to all that are preparing for university and congratulations on your A level results!
