Current Loves: Yankee Candle – Vanilla Cupcake

Evening bloggerinies! Well after last week my body has broken out into what I can only describe as medium to mild acne (getting better by the day *touch wood*), not sure why, but I won’t be posting my face too much or the products I’m currently using (which currently stand at 3?). But I miss blogging, so instead I thought I’d chat to you about the candle that is currently burning in my room… and smelling great!

Vanilla Cupcake is sold in the traditional Yankee Candle jar, but has also been released as part of a collection in the packaging above. I’m not too sure of the reasoning for this and in all honestly I’m too lazy tonight to even Google it. But anyway, the candle itself smells lovely. If you were a Christmas Cookie fan you will love this as they’re very similar, although I’d say Vanilla Cupcake is sweeter.  This scent is also available in mini sizes in addition to the traditional jars, and I was bought those for valentines day as I love the smell so much.

As with all Yankee Candles, the burn time is amazing, and I love the fact that they burn evenly, unlike my beloved Jellybean candles 🙁 I also quite like the variety of packaging, purely because the jars can be used for a variety of storage options once you’re done burning the candle.

I have to say, I’m feeling like a bit of a candle addict, I swear I only posted about one a few weeks ago!

      You can get them from Clintons (only a small selection), everywhere online, WHSmiths are stocking them at the moment (random?!) and John Lewis – these are the only places I've found but I know there are lots of shops around the UK and small independent shops around the country that do them – just need to have a search!

    I love anything vanilla, and throw in the word cupcake and I think that's pretty much my ideal candle scent summed up 🙂 xx
