Throughout the festive season I go candle crazy, there's a candle burning on my bedside table as long as I'm in my room whenever I'm there (you may have noticed a number of bloggers going candle crazy, it appears to be contagious)!
There are plenty of glorious luxury candles in the shops this year but my favourite brand to turn to is Yankee Candle. Yankee Candle have a huge range of scents suited to anyone's tastes, and of course the sweet, sugary and fruity scents land right up my street. If you're a fan of Yankee's Vanilla Cupcake then this will be up your street too!
'Christmas Cupcake' is one of my top picks to burn throughout the festive season, it's the perfect twist on a classic cupcake scent with its hints of spice and sugar toppings - it reminds me of a batch of freshly baked cupcakes and sugar cookies, mm mm. The scent isn't overpowering, artificial or sickly at all, it's so true to life and lets face it, who doesn't like the smell of freshly baked cakes? How fantastic to have the scent filling your rooms even when you're not baking.
To get the most burn time and an even burn from your candles always trim the wick straight across before you light it to ensure it burns evenly.
Yankee Candles retail at varying prices from varying retailers across the UK, I picked my small jar up from a local independent retailer for £8.39.
