Hello friends! With the Christmas season comes a new round of special candles from Better Homes & Gardens at Wal-Mart! These big 18-ounce jar candles cost right around $5... but for a few dollars more you can get a slightly smaller candle (14.5 ounces) with a cute ceramic lid.
I've been buying these candles for a year or so now, and most recently I was obsessed with the fall Country Kettle Corn scent. I love these candles because they're big & burn a long time... but they also truly smell-up a room! (is that the right terminology? haha) After they burn for awhile and some hot wax develops at the top of the candle- they're just so fragrant. And I love my flameless candles... but I still really enjoy the look & scent of one of these lovely candles!
There are a number of great new holiday scents, but I picked up Frosty Peppermint Snow (which I haven't burned yet, but it smells AWESOME! I don't think I've ever had a minty candle before!), and I also have Spiced Apple Wreath. I burned that one while shooting my latest makeup tutorial and it was just delicious. The green color is also really pretty. When I was in Wal-Mart the other day, this lady looked at my cart and said- where did you find those adorable candles?! :)
And here's another cool thing... those nice ceramic lids will fit ANY of the large Better Homes & Gardens candles as well! I purchased a couple of them last year, and it's nice to know that just because you've used up the candle, you can still re-use the little lamp-shade type lid (which is obviously open at the top.) Those can also make a nice protective barrier from your cats! :) Still, I don't burn candles when Tyler or I aren't in the room.
- All holiday decorating is done... and the outdoor garland situation is solved. I put on a new string of lights & it's all good :)
- Using Candy Cane Chapstick. It's so darn minty!
- Currently wearing: sweatpants, v-neck t-shirt, and Turbie Twist. Fresh out of the shower!
- I love how my mom calls me after she sees my new videos. She always likes them :)
