I am back yay! I kind of took a 2 week hiatus from the blog and shooting content for it. I mentioned this on my instagram but I think it's natural to lose inspiration every once and a while and that you don't need to force yourself to find it again immediately. I feel that because of how social media is specifically instagram and its algorithm it can be hard to not want to just put something out for the sake of numbers. I have succumb to this at times but I am trying recently to be more than that. To stay genuine and authentic in my postings even if that means my numbers will fluctuate.
Anyway I am sure you didn't come to this post to hear my blabber why I haven't posted you hopefully came because you love candles and fall as much as me! Guys I cannot even tell you the excitement I have that fall is coming. Like my heart could explode haha. I am just a little obsessed to put it mildly. I honestly love every single thing about fall and I dive into it full body mind soul. I pretty much try to incorporate something fall into everything, clothing, scents (aka the candles), drinks( all the warm cinnamon spiced lattes), decor(my room becomes a fall wonderland) etc. I will talk more about these things as the time comes.
But today I am going to talk about the candles I will be burning all during fall and am sneakily burning now to get me into that fall mood. Also disclaimer** my taste in candles are all woody-smokey,spicey, and a little sweet** so if you like those crazy sweet ones sorry you are out of luck from me**
Candle #1 is Vanille by Diptyque. This candle y'all (idk why I just said y'all clearly I become southern when I get passionate) is one of the best smelling candles I have ever smelt.It smells like smokey-woody vanilla. AKA heaven. Funny thing about this candle I was reluctant to smelling it in the store because usually vanilla candles make me gag no joke they are so sweet most times its off putting. But they are like just smell it and I did thinking oh man this is going to be bad and instead found this to be one of my favorite scents ever for all year around not just fall. Thats a good thing to because it was one expensive candle but worth it in my opinion.
Candle#2 Is Fireplace by Hollow Tree and I literally got this 2 days ago. You might ask me how could this be a favorite when you only just received it well let me tell you. I stumbled upon them when I was actually looking for a different candle and immediately fell in love with their company. I feel if I were to have a candle company (my dream one day) I would want it to be like theirs. The way they story tell about their scents is truly amazing. This candle is again woodsy-spciey- warm aka a fireplace haha. But wow is it heavenly.
Candle#3 is a bathandbodyworks candle from last year I will check if they still carry this scent but it is chestnut and clove. This scent is really the fall essence to me because chestnuts are nostalgic to me. My family during the fall every year always cooks chestnuts in the oven and the scent envelops the whole house. It feels so homey. So when I burn this candle it reminds me of some of my favorite memories and it doesn't hurt that it smells so good too.
Candle#4 Another bathandbodyworks candle from last year but I know they still have this scent they do every year it's crisp morning air. This is the only one out of the bunch that isn't a spicy, warm scent. This one is woody but more fresh. I love burning this one in the morning when its just starting to get sunny but it's cold and crisp out side.
Also I might be buying a few on my wishlist all are from bathandbodyworks!
I hope this gets you in the fall spirit a little and you have a wonderful rest of your Friday XO
