I bloody love Winter. After Autumn, Winter is my second favourite season as I adore the cold and thrive in these colder months. I love wearing cosy jumpers, freezing cold walks with the dog, hearty food which warms your stomach, all the twinkling lights and starting my Christmas shopping. Although I’m not mad about Christmas Day too much, I love the Christmas and Winter ‘aesthetic’ – it’s truly the prettiest and cutest time of the year. So I’ve put together a little Winter wish list of things which are super cute which I would love to own this time of the year. You can find links to each product below! Happy shopping!
Autumn is upon us! Technically, it started on Friday 22nd September in the UK (also my mum’s birthday) so it’s socially acceptable to embrace all the Autumn tings now we’re officially in the season. Although what’s the betting we get a heat-wave now? But anyway, it’s the season for all us basic bitches (absolutely nothing wrong with being a basic bitch) to come out of our shells and to flood the blogoverse with pumpkins , fairy-lights and candles galore. Here’s my own basic-ass list of things you can do to fully embrace the most wonderful season of all.
I am my mother’s daughter in that I love candles. Big, small, scented, un-scented, Yankee, own-brand – you name it, I love going into a shop and sticking my face in a bunch of gorgeous candles. Like, when they’re un-lit, of course. We have more candles in our house than we know what to do with but when Candles With Love contacted me asking if I’d like to review some of their candles, I wasn’t going to say no, was I? I like to think I have enough experience in candle sniffing to be a reliable judge of what makes a decent candle or not.
Now, y’all know I’m probably not the best advocate for Christmas. Not a huge fan, it has to be said. But… You know what I am a huge fan of? Candles. As a 20 something basic female and your average blogger, candles do not go amiss with me. And not just for blog photo purposes – I do actually, you know, light them. Sometimes. Today I’m teaming up with United Candles to review two beautiful Christmassy candles. Like when will someone invent something that lets you smell things through a computer because I actually feel guilty that I get to smell these candles and you don’t. Ah well, c’est la vie!
