  Well it looks like Autumn is finally here and I have been enjoying my time with being at home, cooking for the family, having friends over and snuggling up on the sofa with my hubby. When its getting colder outside I always have this need of making my house cosy and wanting to be all relaxed indoors. I don't know what it is but there is just something very appealing to me with being inside and putting some lovely candles on, cuppa tea in one hand and watching a film all snuggled up on the sofa. I am sure I am not the only one, even my kids don't want to go outside and play anymore. Or maybe they got that from me, haha. 

Anyway I thought I would all let you know about some resent finds that I made in the last week or so.
As you all know one of my favourite shops to stop by when I am in town is TK Maxx ( or TJ Maxx for all you American readers) and the need to satisfy my nesting and making my house more cosy feeling, I headed straight to the home section to find some lovely scented candles. I love candles, there is just something about them that makes you feel relaxed and they really set the mood for a chilled night in.

TK Maxx have a huge selection of candles and it took me at least 10 min to decide with candles I was going to get. I normally go for spiced candles and this time was no exception. I got a soy spiced pumpkin candle and a roasted spice candle, both of them were only £5.99 for 400ml, not bad if you consider some other candles like Yankee Candles can cost you up to £17 for a medium sized jar and I can honestly say that the quality is the same. Over all I am very happy with my finds and I have a feeling that I will be back to get some more. No need anymore of spending a lot of money on candles unless I become weak and spend some money on a Jo Malone candle, they are truly out of this world good.

Do you love candles as much as I do??? I would love to know what kind of scents you normally go for and what your favourite candles are.


  1. I'm haven't liked candles for years and years, preferring my Scentsy (the ones with the wax cubes on top and the light bulb in the middle). But I am in to the Home Sense candle scents right now!! I have been burning my cinnamon bun one non-stop. I love "spice" smells as well for Autumn!
