Hump Day Quickie: Candles are Ah-Maze-Innggg!

Let me just take a moment to tell you where all my extra funds are going these days... candles! That is right; I have been hitting up every scented aisle in the stores to get my variety of smells from my favorite burning sensation. Some of my favorite combinations lately have included sea salt and sage, black orchid and pomelo and sandalwood myrrh.

The reason I am so obsessed these days is much like the use of essential oils. When I turn on the candle the smells give me new life and help me relax. I also find that I am more productive and able to stay on track with the flicker going and subtle smells circulating in the air. I wish that I was able to burn them during work hours because I know it would be magnificent for me! If you are having a bad day, are a little stressed out or having a hard time getting creative, I recommend you light a candle and just let the magic happen for you!

Target and Marshall's have some great ones, but I would not recommend going for the cheap knock-offs elsewhere because the burn is a bit strange and you won't enjoy the smells very much. Just trust me on that one, okay! I had purchased some of those before and I wish I could feel comfortable tossing them if it weren't for the fact that I spent my hard-earned cash on them.

If you know of any other great places to buy some delectable scented goodies I would love to hear about them in the comments below. Take care and let those candles take you on a scent-filled vacation at home!


  1. I'm with you - I love candles! I too have found that the more expensive the candle, the better the burn. Hope you're doing well! :)

    1. Thank you so much for taking a read. It is hard at first to spend the extra bucks, but for the great smell and burn to keep you feeling happy it is so worth it! I hope you are enjoying an amazing summer so far :).
