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!

Hello everyone!
It is March now! The time has gone by so fast. I only have 3 months left until my a-level exams, and I am stressing out big time! What calms me down the most, are Yankee candles. The fragrance is so strong and they last forever. I have recently bought those three candles, one jar and two votives. The fruity melon is a must-have this Spring!!
What I really wanted to talk about today was the outfits I wore last Thursday. Below is a picture of me wearing white jeans and a teal camisole. I wore that outfit to college that day. The jeans I am wearing were on sale in H&M for whooping £5!!! The camisole is from Primark, the gold chain is also from Primark. My nails are by Barry M in the colour Peach Melba. Excuse my dirty mirror, I didn't realise that I had so many fingerprints on it. It must have been my brother messing about with my sister and poking at things with their sticky fingers!!

Later on that Thursday, I was going out with my 3 close friends to a restaurant called Chutney. One of my best friend's father owned the place and they were having a Bollywood night. Me, being a great lover of Indian cuisine, was the first to get ready for this event! I have used all of my sparkly eye shadows and Indian bangles I have received for my 18th birthday. They were really hard to put on as they are meant to be tight around the wrist, so I had to moisten up my hand to get them on!! I wore my emerald and black lacy bodycon dress and black suede wedges.

That is it for today guys, I will try and post more but I really have no free time to do so as revision awaits me :( coursework deadlines also do not help!!
Lots of love,

Soft Cotton
Vanilla Frosting
Snowflake Cookie
Merry Marshmallow
Just like every other girl, I love scented candles. My current favourites are Yankee Candles, as they will burn for many hours and the smell is never-ending as I don't have to light them up for them to give a nice smell. I had to buy a couple of the new festive candles: Snowflake Cookie, and Merry Marshmallow. Snowflake Cookie is by far my favourite as it is very sweet and you can actually smell the biscuit which is amazing! Merry Marshmallow is a fluffy bunny's favourite haha. It smells just like mini vanilla marshmallows. It's fantastic. 
Vanilla Frosting smells very buttery-like cake frosting should, and the hint of vanilla is very strong which fills the room up with lovely fresh-baked cake smell. 
I recently purchased Soft Cotton as I wanted a change form all the heavy and sweet scents. This candle smells like fresh laundry which makes me want to smell it all the time! I might just have to buy about 4 of these and spread them round in my bedroom or even in my wardrobe!

Lots of love,
