THESE ARE THE CANDLES YOU NEED RN
Lockdown has seen us celebrate the little joys and one of mine is a new candle. I love starting my morning with a coffee, going through my emails, my fave playlist and lighting a candle. Such a simple pleasure but it really brings me a lot of happiness. What’s more, for whatever reason, I don’t get the same post-purchase guilt when I buy homeware.
Yes, the evenings are about to get a lot less cosy and a lot more sun-drenched (hopefully) but candles are a must from season to season. It won’t be long before you can have friends in your garden so get it looking like a Pinterest heaven with some candles. Date night still requires some ambient lighting and what’s the point in having a bath without some relaxing candles?
With all that in mind I’ve rounded up my favourite wax wonders that you should be purchasing right now...
