It's that time of year again where the leaves begin to fall and everyone swaps their light summer dresses for cosy, wintery jumpers. It's my favourite month of the year, so this I'm going to try and make it as cosy as possible in my home.
I've pulled out all the stops this year and ordered some candles and other bits and bobs from Bath and Body Works. I know, I know.. how did I do it!? Well, I used this company called My Mall Box which gives you a US address where you get your parcel delivered to. They then forward the parcel on to you, with a fee of course. They're certainly worth checking out!
Since I'm not the only person who loves a good candle, I thought i'd share my purchase with you on here, hopefully giving you some inspiration and idea on what to buy.
I've actually got this one lit whilst writing this post, and I will tell you know, I could trick someone that I have a pecan pie cooking in the oven. It's that real! The smell is of buttery waffles with warm, toasted pecans. This candle really does make me hungry.
Bath and Body Works describe it as: maple syrup, golden waffles, pumpkin spice and brown sugar. This candle costs $22.50 (although I bought them when on an amazing deal of $12.50 each!)
This has got to be one of my favourites as I have been absolutely obsessed with pumpkin lately! With nutmeg, vanilla and pumpkin,
you cannot go wrong for Autumn. It makes my lounge feel so cosy;
I just can't wait for the leaves to start falling now.
Can I just say how much I adore the packaging of these candles? This one is so cute with its white picket fence and little white pumpkins. The smell of this one is fruitier with a strong hit of spice. Like the pies your mum used to make, I reckon! Another candle that will make you dash out to the super market for something sweet!
B&BW: Sweet blueberry, baked apple, blackberry, pumpkin pie, puff pastry. $22.50.
A lot of peoples favourite and I can see why; a floral smell with hints of spices and crisp leaves. Trust me, I swear I can actually smell the leaves. A perfect Autumn candle.
B&BW: Crisp red apple, golden nectar, warm clove spice. $22.50.
I think this has to be my all-time favourite because of its connotations with cosiness. I like to light this one when reading a book on the sofa, preferably with a hot choc in hand! It really does smell of marshmallow toasting over a fire.
Also the pumpkin and leaf candle holder is so cute, and really suits well on a fireplace. I can't seem to find this anymore on the B&BW website, despite only just ordering it. If you want to buy it, keep checking as they may bring it back.
B&BW: Toasted marshmallow, smoldering woods, fire roasted vanilla, crystallised amber. $22.50.
A cinnamon-smelling candle perfect for halloween. I really love the design of this candle, especially the lid - those bats are adorable! The perfect addition to any halloween party!
B&BW: Haunted pumpkin, creepy clove,vampire's vanilla, scary brown sugar. $22.50.
Other bits and bobs
This glittery, pumpkin air freshener holder is super cute and very festive for the season! It's had our car smelling of the 'leaves' candle all week, and I love it! $6.50.
Below are the 'scentaportables' I bought: pumpkin apple and leaves. $3.50 each or 2 for $6.
Okay, so I had to get this. Not only for it's scrummy smell of salted caramel and (yet again), pumpkins. It was totally worth it, and I will definitely keep the bottle after because of it's cute little shape! $18.00. (2 in 1 body wash and bubble bath).
I've not used this yet as I'm stowing it away until the approach to Halloween properly starts, but all I know is that it smells of berries, not blood, so no need to panic! $6.50 or 6 for $24.
I love cats, so much. I couldn't resist this hand wash because of this fact. Oh and also it's pumpkin, so double yes! $6.50 or 6 for $24.
I've had this one in the bathroom recently, and the smell is so good. This one reminds me a lot of Christmas, probably because of the cranberry. The smell lingers on your hands for a good while after washing, and also foams up when you lather. $6.50 or 6 for $24.
Who ever thought to put berry crumble (+ pumpkin for good Autumn- measure!)in a hand wash? Well, whoever did had the right idea because I bet it smells yummy. As you know, I love partaking in a spot of baking.. well now I can transport this into my hand washing too! Dreams have now come true.
How cute is this? I have brought my love of cats to my love of hand sanitizers, and now they can be as one! This spooky cat sanitizer holder (or PocketBac as B&BW call them) cost $5.50. I've already put mine to good use at work.
OMG these socks are literally the softest ever. They're also shea-infused, which is cool. I did find that they lose a lot of fluff at the beginning, so i've popped them in the wash to see if this helps! I wore these as soon as I opened them, whilst sat on the sofa, nice and cosy in front of the fire. Also them being halloween-y and cat-themed is a win win for me! $8.50.
