Merry Christmas everyone! If you’re reading this on Christmas Eve then you’ll be feeling very festive no doubt – Christmas Eve is actually my most favourite part of the whole deal. It’s just so filled with memories of the excitement that I felt when I was little; there’s something totally magical about the night before. Being made to go to bed so that “Father Christmas” could come down the chimney, leaving out the mince pie and carrot…
Here’s my Annual Candle Video – please do watch it if only to laugh at Mr AMR lighting the candle wicks. He refused to waste a new match on each candle and so the flame kept getting nearer and nearer to his fingers! I actually filmed over a dozen of the candles being lit but these were the only ones I could include – I was envisioning a million health and safety complaints landing in my Youtube comments section. I will possibly do a more in-detail candle post early next week with my favourite picks – though they were all pretty lovely, to be quite honest! I have listed them all, with a few “tasting notes” underneath the video pane. Maybe some of them will go into the sales – I shall keep my hawk eyes open and keep you updated.
But it’s goodbye for now; I’m taking the next few days off! I will be back next week with a renewed sense of purpose and lots of exciting posts.
Have a wonderful Christmas, everyone. Eat, drink and be merry.
Space NK Shimmering Spice Small Candle: http://goo.gl/qNjGuH – this is small but perfectly formed and smells amazing. Really good value at £15 but with a true luxury scent.
