Review || Yankee Candle Wax Tart and Burner

As most of you already know, I have an obsession with candles, especially if they are made by Yankee. I have recently found out what the tarts are used for! I always thought that they were mini candles but when I went in store and asked about the burner, the sales assistant told me that the tarts don't have wicks and are meant to be placed inside the burner to melt and create a scented oil which evaporates into air. I mean, how cool is that?!

I used the Summer Scoop tart as I got it for my birthday this year and wanted to try it out ever since! I honestly did not like the smell very much as it was too powerful for my liking. It was too sweet and heavy, whereas I prefer woody or bittersweet scents.

Winter favourite scents! Snowflake cookie and fireside treats.

My cute little Yankee candle collection!
Overall I loved the whole burner idea and will definitely stock up on loads more tarts! The fragrance that comes out of them is much better than the one out of the jar if you cannot afford it! It lasts a loooong time! A definite 10/10.
The best candle for this time of the year, It smells fantastic and makes you want to sit down with a good book and a cuppa and watch the rain fall outside the window.

What's your favourite Yankee candle? Do you recommend any? Please leave a comment below and let me know!

What I'm reading at the moment

Hello everyone!
In today's post I wanted to talk about my new favourite book which I'm also reading at the moment - The fault in our stars by John Green. I started reading it not long ago and I must say that I can't put it down, but have to due to college work overload.
This book is about a 16, soon to be a 17 year old girl who has lung cancer and meets a 17 year old boy with an amputated leg. It's a proper teenage love story and I don't want to give anything away in case you're all lined up to read this bad boy!
The fault in our stars will change everyone's lives and their perspective on life and love. The film for this book is coming out this Summer, so I will definitely be going down to Cineworld on the release date!!!
Sorry that this post is very brief, but I have been so busy lately that I have barely any time to blog :(
Lots of love,
