Current Loves: Yankee Candle – Strawberry Buttercream

 A few weeks ago when I went for breakfast/lunch with my best friend, I had a bit of a mad candle splurge. Clinton’s in Hove still had its Yankee Candle Sale on (the one in Brighton was a major disappointment) and we found some amazing candles, these were the first two I bought in Strawberry Buttercream. One word – YUM.


 Large – £10.99

Small – £7.99

If you love sweet smells this is the one for you. It’s beautiful. It smells like strawberries and cream and I find it’s perfect to get me into bedtime mode and really helps me get to sleep (is that weird?). Now you may be wondering why I bought two, and this is because I’m slowly turning my boyfriend into a candle fiend like myself  – I’m also slowly and secretly moving into his house. So the small one lives at his (and bless him he burns it before I come round so his room smells nice when I get there) and the massive one lives at my house and it just being burnt constantly! I have a few Yankee Candles now and I think this might be my favorite (the boy says Christmas Cookie is his favorite) if you want to then let me know your favorite below/recommend me some for when I use my current ones up!

Hope you’re all well, I’m off to bed seriously early tonight as I’m doing a work experience/career talk at a school in Brighton tomorrow morning and I have to meet everyone at 7:30am!

    Love candles but I never burn them. Weird, I know! I buy really cute candles so I don't want to wreck them. I shall buy some plain ones that I can light!

      I've done that! I have loads of little ones because I hate to burn my favorites, but I don't feel too bad about this one because it's so big! x

    Yankee Candles are absolutely amazing! I'm almost down to the last couple of inches of mine, I think it's definitely time to invest in a couple more! xx
