Hi everyone! Happy New Year and I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and that Santa was good to you. He was super good to me as was all my wonderful family and friends.
The Christmas season was a bit manic for me in work and I was sick for a while as well that’s why I’m only getting around to this post now.
So everyone clearly knows that I’m a candle loving, wax junkie, pyromaniac so I got heaps of candles this year, mostly from Yankee Candle.
I’ve mentioned many times before that I have my doubts about Yankee Candle and only usually buy tarts and votives from them as I’ve had bad experiences with their jar candles and I would also rather spend my money on candles that I know for sure will burn perfectly and smell fabulous, but I ain’t gonna turn my nose up at wads of candles when they’re just given to me, am I? I’d be insane to. So here’s all the Yankee goodies I was given and was very happy to receive,
My brother in law who is generally renowned for not so great Christmas presents or no Christmas presents lol shocked us all with great presents this year he got me Christmas Memories, I haven’t burned it yet but I love the scent it smells like gingerbread and cinnamon and all things yummy and festive.
My parents got me so many awesome presents this year one of those being the Yankee Candle Christmas Past Small Jar Gift Set. I’m not too crazy about Christmas Garland but I like the scent of Christmas Eve and I freakin LOVE Sugared Apple it’s one of my favourite Yankee scents ever.
My better half, the love of my life, did so much to make this the most magical Christmas yet, he’s beyond sweet and so thoughtful, ok enough gushing lol check out those bad boy swirly candles! I was well impressed with these. I haven’t burned them yet, for sure saving the best for last, but they smell insanely good.
Candy Cane Cottage – The holidays are filled with a peppermint explosion. This refreshing duo of Peppermint Bark and it’s irresistible blend of white peppermint, chocolate swirl and wintergreen is absolutely delectable when blended with the cool holiday treat and the sparkling burst of fresh mint and a touch of sweetness that is Peppermint Swirls™.
Cookie Swap – Discover the blend of Gingerbread and Christmas Cookie. The aroma of spicy warm gingerbread rich with nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar will instantly return you to those carefree days when the holidays were always full of wonder, joy and tingling anticipation. Christmas Cookie is the buttery rich, vanilla scent of holiday sugar cookies.
He also got me (amongst ten million other presents) two limited edition two wick tumblers…
I miss the two wick tumblers, they burn so perfectly, so I was really happy with these plus they smell yummy.
Santa’s Candy Castle™ – A palace made of fruity gumdrops where dreams come true for kids of all ages.
Sugary Sweet Snowfall – A winter wonder as perfectly roasted marshmallows fall from a creamy vanilla sky.
The stack of tarts above I treated myself too and these candles below were gifts from friends and colleagues in work, so super lucky to have the best job ever!
I can’t wait to try Snow In Love, I didn’t like it when it was first launched but I quite like it now, its sorta like a masculine baby powder type scent, if that makes any sense at all lol.
I’m so grateful for all my wonderful gifts and to have spent Christmas with those I love the most, I hope Christmas was just as lovely for you as it was for me.
