You can’t tell me that at this time of year you wouldn’t love to light some candles, make yourself your own pumpkin spice latte and snuggle up on the couch with a big warm blanket; to me that’s basically what autumn is all about.
I can’t believe summer is over, well it’s not like we ever really had one, but you know what I mean.
I actually don’t mind that it wasn’t a super hot summer because I prefer autumn/winter time. Cooler weather means woolly cardis, the smell of crisp brisk air, leaves changing to beautiful vibrant colours and the comfort of evenings spent snuggled up on the sofa with lots of warm blankets and getting to light lots of candles earlier in the day…pure bliss.
Have you tried this season’s new heavenly scented candles from Yankee Candle?
Before I start this review for this Woodwick candle I should point out I have had zero luck with any previous wood wick candles. This only made Sam more nervous about me doing the review, when I admitted to her that I wasn’t keen on them. My previous experiences have included the crackling sound to be so loud I found it stressful and distracting, definitely not the soothing experience that I was led to believe would happen. Also the burnt edges from the wick would fall into my candle and I was forever picking bits out. Read More
When two girls spend most of their days dealing with work, babies and boys they rarely get much time for themselves, not that they complain(too much). So it’s the little things that make them happy, like relaxing with a cup of tea and lighting the wick on a brand new candle or when they read about new candles being launched.
Sure they get excited about shoes and throw cushions like most girls, but candles are a whole different story with Sarah and Sam.
They both have stashes of wax tarts and have great discussions about which ones are nicer and about mixing different scents together.
They even talk in code about which candles they’ve bought and will buy so as not to get “the look” from the men in their lives who have to live with the addiction, and who usually have to foot the bill for the candle splurges.
They have it pretty good though; an actual serious problem to Sarah or Sam is when their clicky things run out of fuel or when a company discontinues one of their many favourite candles; tears have actually been shed.
They know everything about candles; what to do with them and what not to do, they know millions of tips and tricks and where to go to get the best deals.
That’s why they started Vanilla&Lime, so they can share all of their borderline pyromaniac wisdom and knowledge with you, along with some reviews, product features, tips, tricks, giveaways and general chit chat about pretty things.
