The September Melt Box – Flamingo Candles ’17

One thing which I am always looking forward to when a new month started is that there is going to be a new melt box arriving as you know I am someone who loves burning candles and tarts. With this weather which is coming colder, I can see myself burning some of these fast. Today I am going to share with you September’s edition I know this is super early for me to put one of these up but I have some amazing content which is going to be coming up in the next few weeks.

If you are unsure what the melt box is it is a monthly subscription box from flamingo candles each box has 8 wax tart melts. They are a combination of old favorites, current scents and some which are still yet to be launched as well as some exclusives to the melt crowd. As a member, you receive a wax burner with your first box which allows you to burn the wax as well as a 20% discount code with every box which is useful for us candle addicts.

Bubblegum is not one which I would have selected should I have gone into a shop which sells the wax tarts because of the fact that I am not a huge fan of sweet scents. This does actually remind me of the scent of the cheap chewing gum which I used to get when I was younger. This does mean that I am going to be more likely to actually burn this at some stage in the future maybe before Christmas. If you love sweet scents this for sure one is which you will love more than me. I do love that this month because the theme is Grl Powr it comes with really cute little saying to make yourself feel better about yourself. I do love thinking I am magical and this is something which I think a lot of people are going to love. 

Black Raspberry and Vanilla which is one which for sure is one of my favourites the reason behind this is because I like vanilla however for me it has to be mixed with something otherwise I find it a little bit too bland and boring. The black raspberry in this tart gives me something which actually which is not too fruity it gives it an element which I love that I can not describe but it is almost like a spicy edge, however, it can not be but this is what makes me actually love this. This for sure is going to be one which I am going to be burning very soon because we all know that I cannot wait once I have my tarts.  I also feel like I have a life at the moment and that is very rare for me because I do not usually have my shit together.

Cherry is a scent which I love as long as it does not smell too artificial which is a problem which I have found with a lot of cherry scented candle products which I have had in the past and usually I tend to go for more black cherry scents. I do not know if flamingo have managed to crack the cherry scent or if it is the amaretto which makes me adore this scent but for sure it does make me think that I am going to have to burn it very soon because it is amazing and one of my favourites in the collection which we received this month. Which technically is a sweet one which is surprising because as I am sure you are aware I prefer fruity and fresh to sweet scents. 
The next scent which I got in the box is the lime and black pepper which is not one which I think I would have thought as a candle scent instead it is something which reminds me of the crisps which I think it is walkers who do. This scents one which is very clean with a hint of something which means that it is not too fresh this must be the black pepper element. This for sure is not one which I would have picked up if I had not been sent it, however, it one which I am actually liking andthis I am going to end up burning this in the next couple of months while the weather comes cooler.
This one I am not going to lie to you is one which for sure I was unsure about because of the fact that I know I love the smell of new books there is nothing more I love than actually sitting down and reading a new book, however, old books just makes me think of a library and the smell of that. This scent is one which I kind of am not going to be able to do justice because I can not put my finger on what it actually smells of. This is one which I am going to say is not unpleasant at all it is far from it but it is not one of my favouites from this box. I do not want to put the candles down though because it is really nice.  

Lilac to me is actually a colour not a scent so when I received this one I did not know what to actually think about the scent.I still am unsure what I think this smell like I think it is very floralish. I don’t think I actually like the scent too much because of the fact I do not know what it does actually smell of an I think I actually like to know what a scent is before I burn it because there is nothing worse than burning a candle which you do not actually like in the end. This is going to be one which I am not going to be burning for a while. 
I love thunderstorms which are in the weather they are amazing I do not know what this scent smells of as well because of the fact that I do not think that thunderstorms actually have a scent, however, every single time I smell this scent I can actually smell something different every single time I actually dry sniff this. I am unsure what I am decided if I adore this scent it could be because of the fact that every time I smell it I get a different vibe. I am sure if actually burn this candles I will find out if I do love this because I should get its true scent. This for sure is going to be one which I do not burn for a while because there are ones which I love more. 
This box is not one of my favourites I think that I have had months which have been of more appeal to me however, I know this is personal preference. I am looking forward to the next box because October I think could be an amazing box because after all it is going to be Halloween and techincally Autumn. 
Have you tried out this box if so what is your thoughts?

Cleeve Candles Haul

Lush and candles if you have read my blog in the past you will know is two things which I adore so over a year ago when I found a little company who did lush scents in wax tart form I was all over it. I knew that I would be purchasing more and more from them that company is Cleeve Candles. They are a store which can be found on etsy and at the moment are only selling one day a month on what they call restock day to find out when the next one is you will have to visit their site, however, I can tell you it will be towards the end of September now.

These are items which I managed to pick up in the restock night back in June I meant to share these with you before however, have just not got round to it which seems to be the story of my blog at the moment and for that I apologise. The first item which I picked up was this huge pie which is a blend of 3 of lushies ultimate fragrance which if I remember correctly is 29 high street, calacas and snow twilight which if you know me is a few of my favourite scents from the company. I am going to be ableto break this huge pie into a lot of different pieces which means that I am going to get a lot of burning time into my wax burner. I think a huge pie like this is around the £11 mark I may be a little bit wrong.

In the summer months is there anything better than the smell of suncream been applied well I do not think so this was one of the reasons behind me purchasing this wax. I think it is one which I am going to adore burning when the weather is been typically British and not that warm even though it is summer. On dry sniff it smells a little bit different to what I thought it was going to but hopefully when I actually end up burning a chunk of this I will like it if not I will end up selling it on so that someone else can get the joy out of this wax.

One of my favourite scents from Lush is Calcas which is a scent which was out a few halloween’s ago now it is the scent of monster ball for anyone who may have tried that last year. I adore this scent and could not think of anything better than my whole house smelling of the scent the only way I can kind of describe this is sour gummy worms if you are fan of these sweets then maybe this one if for you. I have a few tubs of this because I love the scent so much and they are not available every single destash night. I can not wait for the weather to change a little bit so I can start burning wax more and more.

Lime cooler is one which I thought I would pick up as well due to the fact that you do not see much wax which is a lime scented at all. I love lime for some reason the name of this makes me think of Costa maybe because a lot of their cool drinks are called coolers. You can sure tell when you get this that there is a hell of a lot of lime in it almost makes me want to eat it even though I know that would be a stupid idea and no doubt very dangerous. I think this is going to be one which I am going to burn when I am missing the summer rather than one I am going to burn right now give it a couple of weeks to a month and I can see this been one which I am burning. For some reason, I have managed to already lose the picture of this which is never good and I already have started to burn this.

Mango and Pineapples are a couple of fruits which I love to consume in the summer months so when I saw that Cleeves was doing a blend of them in wax tart form I knew I had to have some. If a couple of fruits scream summer to me more than these I do not know what it is. I can smell more mango than I can pineapple but this is not something which bothers me at all. I think that the blend is not too overpowering like some of the other companies which I have tried. This for sure is one which I am going to be burning in the near future.

My favourite I think I am going to claim from the whole of my haul is this little wax melt which is Slushie yes it is based on the blue raspberry slush puppy’s that you used to be able to get when I was a growing up. I am unsure if you can still purchase them now I don’t think I have seen them in a while. This smells just spot on I can not believe how much even on dry sniff I thought it smelt like this. It almost makes me want to hunt down a slush right now because they smell that amazing, Even Jess keeps stealing this sniffing it and going nice so it much is a firm favourite. This is going to be one which was soon as my tart burner has some room I am going to be burning. Just look how pretty it is how could anyone say no.

Have you tried Cleeve Candles? Could you recommend any other companies who make so amazing wax tarts?

Flamingo Candles – July Box 2017

July’s box came with a theme of Pool Party which really suits the month because we have been having such a heat wave in the UK. I think everyone has been wanting to have them if they haven’t been there anything better than cool water in this heat. I have to say how amazing the packaging is in this box as well because we have unicorns. watermelons and doughnuts which all seem to be on trend at the moment and they are all in emjoi’s.

This month has a really cool selection of melts so without further ado I will share with you the scents. The first one which I unboxed was pomegranate cider which makes me think of sipping the fruit ciders in either a beer garden or at the minute more likely the back garden. This smells really autumnal almost to me because of the fact that I associate the pomegranate with that time of year more than I think of it in the summer. This is actually one which I really do like and can see myself burning very soon even though I have a hell of a lot of melts to burn.

Watermelon is not a strong scent so to me I actually have no association with a scent for this candle which is shocking, however, instead of it smelling fruity like you might think that it should because it is a fruity scent to me it smells a hell of a lot more clean and fresh which if you have read my candle posts in the past you know I love this kind of scents. This for sure is going to be one which I am actually going to be burning in when the weather cools down a little bit because at the moment I am finding it slightly too hot to be burning.

Mango and Dragonfruit wax tart is heaven to me because as someone who absolutely adores the scent of Mango as long as it is not made to smell like it is too artificial. Flamingo candles have made it so that this scent is not too artificial so this is one which I love so much because it smells like real mangos do as bad as it sounds it smelt that fresh that I almost wanted to eat the candle. Don’t worry I resisted the urge because I know it would not do me any good. This for sure is going to be another one which is burnt very soon because it has to be nearly one of my favourites from this box.

Beach Balls to me should smell of rubbery plastic or is that just me who has the smell of that when they think of beach balls. This tart to me doesn’t have the scent of this because this would not be something which would be very pleasurable to burn, however, for me this is not a tart which has a lot of scents. The small scent which I can smell does not remind me of anything this for sure is going to be one which is added to the collection but not burnt for a long time.

Lemon curd is the next one which I picked out of the box and this is one which I love even though I am a huge fan of sweet scents this one to me is not actually too sweet at all which makes a change because I know so many of these can be. To me, it smells more like Lemon which you would find in cleaning products rather than a sweet one which is not something which you would expect from a product which is meant to be lemon curd scented.  This for one is going to be one which I am burning very soon. 

Pineapple and Raspberry are not too fruits which you would think about putting together when it comes to the summer months however, they are both summer fruits which I adore. I am unsure which scent I get the most of when I dry sniff this I think it is actually the blend is amazing. I think that it is something which should they do the scent in a medium candle or something like this I would repurchase because of the fact that I really like it so I might have to go on the hunt for this.

The next one which I picked out of the box was this lovely sweet lime and cedar scent which really is one which I enjoy this is because of the fact that I love the citrus scents which we are the notes which I get when I give this a dry sniff. I am unsure what the cedar is meant to be to be so this could be another reason why I am more attracted to the sweet lime element.  This is another one which I would love to purchase should it be able to get in in another form rather than a wax tart as I have a lot of them to get through. For sure this is one I will be burning in the next few months though.

The final item which was in this box was the Thai Lime and Mango scent which is surprising as we have already had a lime fragrance in this box. I love mango the scent as long as it is not too artificial which this is not it smells like the actual fruit which is alway a winner in my book. I do actually get a mix of both of these scents which is one that is nice because it is very fruity which is amazing because it is a scent that I adore. I think I might claim that this is my favourite in the whole box because it is that amazing and when I have space in my tart burners. 
What if your favourite scent out of this months box? Do you have any recommendations of companies that I should try?

The June Melt Box- Flamingo Candles ’17

Another month has started well I know it started a while ago but that means that there is a new melt box. This months theme was tropic like it’s hot as June is officially the start of the summer which as I write this is true because the UK is experience a heatwave it has been getting as hot as 30. No doubt next week we will be back to rain.  I am going to apologise for the quality of the pictures for some reason when I have uploaded them to blogger some of them have really random lines and there is nothing I can do with it. So I am very sorry about that. 
If you are unsure what the melt box is it is a monthly subscription box from flamingo candles each box has 8 wax tart melts. They are a combination of old favourites, current scents and some which are still yet to be launched as well as some exclusives to the melt crowd. As a member you receive a wax burner with your first box which allows you to burn the wax as well as a 20% discount code with every box which is useful for us candle addicts.

The first scent which I picked up was Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream which to me smells so much of summer because ice cream is something which I adore in the warm months. This really is one which I think I may have to burn in short periods of time because it is sweet which means that it could give me a headache if I have it in for too long,  However, this is one which I can not wait to burn this one because it does smell amazing like the actual ice cream but I am sure it will save me calories because I can not eat candles.
Cola Ice Pops is only a little bit of the cola scent and it is not one which smells like fake/cheap coke if you know what I mean, This does smell a little bit of the cola sweets which you get from Haribo I glad it is only light scent of cola because otherwise it may give me a horrible headache and not actually want to burn it if it was way to strong. This is going to be one which I think I may wait a while to burn maybe more when it is the actual summer months so more July/August will I burn this tart.
Gin and Tonic scent is not one which I love at all I think this is because to me it smells really like a perfume and it is not one which I actually like, I don’t think I have actually tried gin & tonic but this scent I think would be one which people would love if they love gin and tonic. This is going to be one which I will not burn for a long period of time because it is not one of my favourites I might even end up giving this one away to someone who might love it more than I do. It could be one which does surprise me and I might love it when it comes to burning it this wax.
Lemon Sorbet was the next one which I picked out of the box this is one again to me which screams summer to me. I think because you seem to have a lot more lemon things in the summer months such as lemon in your drinks and you eat more sorbet. I think I would have to say that this is one of my favourites because I love how clean it smells rather than a super sweet one. I think this is one which I could burn so easy when I am cleaning or when I need hint of summer on those dull rainy horrible days which no doubt will appear at some stage in the near future. 
Palm Tree is another one which we received in this box this is something which you always think of if you go a on as a warm summer holiday abroad you will see that the and smell them. This smells a little bit of natural and is smells like the summer to me for some reason maybe this is because I have not been on holiday in the longest time abroad. I am sure that that this is going to be one which I am going to burn very soon while it is very warm. I think this is because I can dream that I am actually on a sunny beach somewhere. 
As you may know if you have read any of these posts you know that I actually love the fruity and clean scents. This one is scent is Pineapple & Lime this is one which I adore it smells like a lot of the fruit coolers like they do in Costa I think it is the tropical one. I know I have said a couple of these have been my favourites however, I am sure that this is my ultimate and maybe on of the favourite which we have had in the recent boxes. This is going to be one of the first ones which I burn when I get some spacer in my wax burners because they are currently full. I might have to research if they have this in a candle because for sure this is one which I would love to purchase in a huge candle size. 
The final item which I recieved in the box this month is the Strawberry Candy tart this is not one which I love. The reason behind this is because of the fact that it smells super sweet and this is not one which I like at all because it is to sweet for me I think that this would be on which you would adore should you like the sweeter scents. I think this is one which I might break up into chunks so that I do end up burning it and then it may not be too sweet for me. 
Overall I thought this box was actually a pretty good box I think this has been one of my favourite boxes in the last couple of months. I think there is only maybe 2 tarts which I am not looking forward to burning immediately.
What is your favourite from this box?

Convert Old Candles to Wax Tarts

As you might know I am a huge candle addict however I hate it when you get to the bottom of a candle and you actually  have some wax left but the candle will not light as the wick has burnt out. I decided that I was sick of it so much I wondered if I could turn some of my favourite candles into wax tarts and actually enjoy them in my wax tart burner. I have done this a couple of times now with great success so I have decided that I am going to share how I do it with you.

The first thing which you need to do is find a candle which you like which you have burnt as far as down as you can, I have this Cranberry one which was a dupe for bath and body works which I picked up from B&M at Christmas time, I actually finished this one in about February but just haven’t converted them into tarts till now.

As you can see I have burnt as much as I can the wick has now disappeared and this means that I can not light it even thought there is actually a ton of wax left. You do not need a lot of things to turn them into tarts you need a kettle to boil water in a mixing bowl and am ice cube tray. You can use your normal mixing bowl however, I think I would use a spare ice cube tray because you are going to pour hot wax in them and I would not want to then make ice cubes with the same tray in case there is something in the wax which makes them undrinkable.

The first thing which I do after boiling the water is pour it in to a mixing bowl making sure that the fill line is actually above the amount of wax. The reason that it needs to be boiling water is so that the wax actually melts. Make sure that you pour the water in the bowl not into the candle because if this occurs it will mean that you are diluting the wax so it will not be strong scented when you go to burn the tarts. ,You need to make sure that all of the wax is meted before you pour it it may take a while so you need to be patient.

Once all of the wax is melted slowly pour the wax make sure that you do not get too close to the the top because you need to be able to pop them out when the wax has actually has actually dried, Depending on the amount of the wax which you have you may get multiple tarts I think from the one which I have shown you I managed to get 6 small tarts which are the same size as ice cubes. They still have the same amount of scent as when it was a candle and this way means that you do actually get to use the most of the candle.

Have you got a favourite candle which you wish was not running out that you would love to turn into wax tarts?

The March Melt Box- Flamingo Candles ’17



One thing which I am always looking forward to when a new month started is that there is going to be a new melt box arriving as you know I am someone who loves burning candles and tarts. Of course today I am going to share with you March’s edition I know this is pretty late, however, I have just had some much content to get out to you lovely people. March has an amazing spring theme as some of you may know March is when the Spring starts officially and this month I have seen that the weather has become so much nicer.


If you are unsure what the melt box is it is a monthly subscription box from flamingo candles each box has 8 wax tart melts. They are a combination of old favourites, current scents and some which are still yet to be launched as well as some exclusives to the melt crowd. As a member you receive a wax burner with your first box which allows you to burn the wax as well as a 20% discount code with every box which is useful for us candle addicts.



Rose Velvet & Precious Oud this is the first wax tart which I am not a huge fan of rose as some of you may know if you read my candles or lush haul. This one has made me actually like the scent and for some reason I can not put my finger on the reason why maybe they have done something different with the rose which actually makes me like it. I may have to burn this one very soon as I am loving this on a dry sniff.



Violet & Lime this to me smells like parma violets sweets which is not something that I dislike but this is not one which I am looking forward to burning the most. The reason behind this may be due to the fact that I never really loved the sweets when I was growing up as a child so the scent is not one which I have a huge craving to burn. This might smell amazing with something else which is sweet I am unsure what I will burn yet. 



Pink Lemonade I think that this is one of my favourite scents that I have this month because it smells to me super berry and lemon. This really reminds me of the spring/summer which means that it will not take me long to want to burn this because it smells amazing and I love it when it is the summer. I really need to get what I have in my burners burnt because I want this one ASAP.

Creme Brulee is a tart which is a little bit too sweet for me due to the fact that I am a girl who love the more fresh and fruity scents compared to the sweets. I think if you like creme brulee you are actually going to love this scent because of the fact that it is a true representation of the famous desert. 


Peaches and Cream reminds me of the sweets which used to be cream and peach from the 90’s/00’s which used to come in wrappers I swear you used to get them from the dentist but maybe that is me who just used to consume them after been the the dentist. I used to love to suck them so there is no wonder I used to be at the dentist. I am sure that this is one which I am going to be burning very shortly because it does smell actually so much like these sweets and I wish you could still get them. 


Tangerine Mojito I love this scent because it is citrus with a hint of mint which just takes the edge off. I would love to be able to drink this one because it smells that amazing, This is one which on the days when you wish you was in a beer garden but you can not because you have other things to be doing such as staying in and completing assignments which seems to be the story of my life at the moment. I think that this is one of my favourites in this box. 



Daffodil is one which I am not a huge fan of because I do not know what the flower actually has a scent and for me it was a little bit the same with this tart. I am sure that if you love floral scents this may be one which you will end up really liking more than I do. It may be a good one to burn if you have a large area where you burn your tarts


Orange Pekoe Tea I am not a huge fan of tea in candles which is the all that I can smell in this candle. To me it smells like an earthy but very spicy wax tart however this is no a type of tea which I have managed to smell. This is one which I am sure I will burn at some stage however, this is not going to be one which I am going to be itching to burn. 

What is your favourite scent from this box?

The Melt Box- Flamingo Candles February ’17




One thing which I am always looking forward to when a new month started is that there is going to be a new melt box arriving as you know I am someone who loves burning candles and tarts. Of course today I am going to share with you February’s edition I know this is pretty late, however, I have just had some much content to get out to you lovely people. February again had an amazing theme and this was Valentine’s as I am sure your aware that this time as now passed but it doesn’t matter I can still love the tarts they are not just for Valentine’s.

If you are unsure what the melt box is it is a monthly subscription box from flamingo candles each box has 8 wax tart melts. They are a combination of old favourites, current scents and some which are still yet to be launched as well as some exclusives to the melt crowd. As a member you receive a wax burner with your first box which allows you to burn the wax as well as a 20% discount code with every box which is useful for us candle addicts.





Here are my first impressions on the scents which I received this month


‘Strawberry & Vanilla – I am one who really loves strawberry scented products vanilla not so much due to the fact that they can smell so fake. This tart, however, is a nice mix it is very sweet and almost reminds me of strawberry laces which if you are not someone who loves sweet scents this may not be one which you will like. 



‘Rose- This is one for those who love the florals which is not me as such this one is very strong which almost reminds me of rose bombshell from Lush it is that powerful this is one which will be burnt at some stage in my house but I can not see it been the first once which I reach for. 


Cherry Cola-  This is one which reminds me of sweets again I promise it I am not sweet obsessed it reminds me of the fizzy Haribo cola bottles but if they had cherry flavour ones. I recently have started to like cherry coke so this one does actually remind me of this one as well, however, it would not recommend drinking this one. This is one which I feel like I will be burning in the summer months or when it gets warmer for some reason.


Mango- This is one which reminds me of the fruit it very strong I will admit when I first opened the box this is the only thing I could smell. I am sure that this one is one which I am going to adore because of the fact I love Mango fruit but I know this again is going to be one I burn in the summer because this just really reminds me of Mango. It is that strong I may see if I can snap it in half and use half at a time.


GeraniumThis is one which I am unsure of for some reason I don’t know what geranium is meant to smell like but to me, it actually smells more like cake than it does floral this may be just me but for sure this is one which will not be burnt anytime soon.


Raspberry Chocolate- This is one which I love I am sure that it is maybe my second favourite in this box because of the fact that they smell sweet that it has from the chocolate but you can still smell the raspberry really strong which I love because I don’t like it when we have too many sweet scents in one box.I am interested to see how this was smells when it is burning but for sure it is one I can not wait to try


Passionfruit & Lime – I think that this is my favourite in the whole box to me this is very fresh which I seem to love when it comes to burning candles because I burn them so my house smells clean and nice as such. It is one which is very uplifting so I feel like you could burn this when you are feeling pretty down. I would never have thought of putting the two fruits together however, it actually works.


Love bug – This is one again which I can not put my finger on the scent so this means that I am going to have to burn it to see what they scent actually is. I know that this is a pretty rubbish description of this wax but this is the only way I can explain it. 

I overall think that this box is one of the best which we have had in a while, I am looking forward to seeing what is in the March box because I have a feeling that it could be mother’s day related.

What was your favourite scent in this box?

Flamingo Candle- January Scent Melt Box

One of the most popular posts on my blog was when I shared my views on my uly Scent box from the amazing Flamingo candles. I meant to share with you my thoughts on the December one however, it arrived I got super busy with the festive period and never actually got them up. I aim to share my views on these most months because they are something I love being a candle addict. If you haven’t heard of it before it’s a subscription box which every month sends you 8 wax tarts and your first month you get a free tart burner. The subscription is £10 a month with free p&p.  The January box was all about Be Happy as January can be one of the most depressing and long months of the year.

The first scent which I pulled out of the box was Blueberry cheesecake which to me is a very fruity smell which also has a food element. Blueberry to me is a fruity which does not have a lot of scent but it is one which I don’t mind as the food element comes through this is one I could see myself burning and actually making myself hungry. This would be one which if you wanted your house to smell of fresh baking but do not have the time to do this. This is one which I will be burning in this spring when the weather is changing. 
Clean cotton is one which I really adore it reminds me of one from Yankee candle which I think is called either fluffy towels or baby powder I can not remember which one it is. This smells so clean like the fresh air outdoors this is one I think I would love to burn when it is cold and I am missing the warmer air when it allows you to go for a walk this one is one which will soon be burning. I might even have to have a look and see if they do it in a candle because this for sure is one which I would love to own. 
Coconut and Raspberry scent melt is the one which I really like I get a huge amount of coconut however I can not smell raspberry this may be due to the fact that raspberry is a very subtle fruit and is overpowered by the coconut. This is one which I think is more summery which makes me happy because summer is an amazing time of year because you can get out and do way more, This summer may not be but more on that at a later date.  This for sure is one which will not be in my collection for very long before it is in my burner. 
I will be honest with you here I do not actually know what Dewberry smells of however, the candle to me smells super berry like which is one of my favourite kind of scents. This is one which I am unsure what I think it smells of too much without saying that it is nice which is the worst kind of decription and I know this. I might have to review this one in the future when I burn it so that I can give a better review. 
Jasmine and Lime is not combination which I think of when I think of combinations which include Lime usually it is something else which is fruity however, this is a combination which actually works and goes together.  I get the floral element from the Jasmine however I do get a hint of lime which makes me like it more due to the fact I am not a huge floral fan this is something which I can deal with though it is not too floral for me. 
This orange and blackcurrant really is super citrus which is from the orange element as you may know citrus is one of my favourite things in the world when it comes to shower gel and candles as long as it does not smell like cleaning products.  Blackcurrant is very subtle when it comes to this melt but this is not something which I have minded. I really do like this product and again it is one which I can see myself burning pretty soon. 
Pomegrante Cider is one of those again which I can not work out what it actually smells like however it is one which I must say that I do actually like which makes a change because sometimes I can not work out if I love them if I do not know what they smell like. 
The final item which I have in this box is the unicorn dreams this is one which for no doubt I would be purchasing however you can not get this in candle form. This to me smells of Lush it think I pinpointed down to been the comforter which is one of my favourite scents. This is the first one which is going to go in my burner when I have some room as they currently have tarts in them. 

Overall I don’t think this box has been one of my favorites recently I can not wait to see what they do in the February’s box for some reason I can see it been a valentine’s day theme.
If you get this box what has been your favourite scent this month or which one would you like to try. if you do not?

Favourite Winter Candles

Hi Guys

I have decided to share today my favourite candles for the Winter they are not all just Christmassy ones due to the go the fact that I know that I will be burning these way into January and I feel like this is not something you can do if they are all Christmas scents.

The first one which I am sharing with you is the B&M Winter Mist which cost only £2.99. This is one of the dupes for bath and body works, however, I have never tried them. The reason that it is one of my favourite is due to the fact that it smells so clean it reminds me of them crisp winter mornings without it been so cold which is always a bonus. I feel like this is one which you could burn at any time of the year because it is so clean and fresh. I may have to have another trip to B&M to see if I can get any more of these because they are super cheap as well.

The second one is also from B&M and another dupe which cost £2.99 this is frosted cranberry which reminds me of a berry smoothie for some reason, however, you rarely see cranberries in one of these. Cranberries are meant to be festive so this is the reason I have included it in this again this is one which could be burnt at any time of the year it smells clean and fruity for me. This is one again which I may go on the hunt for to stock up on as they are so cheap  and I know that I may not be able to get my hands on them for very long knowing B&M.

The next candle which I am loving is the Yankee Candle Snow In Love which reminds me of a man and women getting ready for a night out like you do in the festive period and the perfume and aftershave which they are spraying. This is one which I am so glad has come back this year because I adore it. The reason I feel like is because it reminds me of when I used to go on nights out I do not go out as much anymore due to having Jess.

The final Yankee candle which I have love is Christmas Eve which to me just smells just like Christmas if I had to just describe one note I can smell Orange but like a heated warm orange scent if this makes any sense at all. I know this is not the greatest scent description so if you are lucky to live close to a Yankee store or somewhere which stocks Yankee go and have a sniff of this one.  The large Yankee candles are £21.99, however, they can actually be found sometimes cheaper in the outlet stores.

The final candle which I have is Secret Santa from Bomb Cosmetics this is one which Joe decided that he liked the smell of so I purchase it, yes I am that shallow when it comes to candles. This reminds me of the warm smell of Christmas and being all cosy for some reason it must be the hint of ginger.  I managed to pick this up at a local store however you can purchase this one online. It would actually make an amazing secret Santa present and is around £8 for this size tin picture, unfortunately, they only do one size.

What are you favourite Christmas candle?

November Flamingo Candle Scent Box- First Impressions

Hi Guys

Today I have another subscription box but this one is for the parents. This is one from Flamingo Candle which is where you get 8 wax tart melts every month for only £9.99 which is such a bargain including the postage as well as getting 20% for been a member of there scent box. Without any further a do I will share my first impressions with this months box

The first tart I put my hands on this month was the Hot Fudge which to me smells very sweet however I feel like it is not something which is too sweet for me as some of them can be. This is something which I can imagine burning when I come home from uni and it is cold and this will warm my house up and make it smell amazing.

Rhubarb and Pear is one which I really adore out of this box and I think it could be one of my favourites to me I can smell the rhubarb. It makes me think of the crumbles which people bake this is something which is very warming and brings back so many memories of my mums rhubarb crumbles.

The next one is one which I will admit I am not a massive fan of and it is popcorn. I think this is due to the fact that it is a little bit too sweet for me however sometimes you have to burn them then make an opinion on them. I am hoping that this is going to be one which surprises me and becomes one which I actually like. I will let you know when I am burning it my opinion.

Chai Tea Latte was the next one which I found in the box now I will admit I really don’t know what a Chai tea latte smells like. So this is going to be one which I am going to have to burn in order to be able to decide if I like it or not however this is not something which offended me straight away when I gave it a sniff.

Black Raspberry and Vanilla is one of those which if I had to choose a favouite out of the whole box it would be this one it smells amazing. I really get the scent of raspberry first then a slight hint of vanilla this is going to be one which I will be burning as soon as I can and have a tart burner free to do this hopefully this is not going to be very long.

The next one which I found in the box was Banana pancakes this is one which I would never have purchased because banana is not one of my favouite. This smells really a lot of banana as the name suggests however hopefully when I go to burn this it is not going to be overpowering and I can stand to burn it. I guess time will tell.

Strawberry and geranium this is one which is an usually scent for me due to the fact that it is floral as well as been fruity however I get more of the floral scents which is something I actually like. This is one which is growing on me the more time time I smell it. This is not one which I would have purchased however it is one which is welcomed in this house hold.

The final tart which I received in this cranberry, orange and cinnamon this is one which I would have purchased myself because it smells like christmas in a candle to me. The reason I think this is due to the fact that it has scents which I think of when I think of christmas. This is one which I can not wait to burn very soon before it becomes past christmas.

Which one of these is your favourite from this box
