Yee-haw! Yankee Candle.

Oct 7, 2014 | lifestyle

I love things that smell good.

When I was a kid, I used to go crazy over scratch-n-sniff stickers, erasers, pens… I’d take a whiff of them all. I’d be that student at the bookshop, busy sniffing stationery rather than trying them out for functionality.

This habit hasn’t changed. I still love sniffing things. Thankfully, this does not extend to anything living.

Enter Yankee Candle, “America’s best loved candle”.

I used to be such a little skeptic when it came to such things. Who needs candles? Burn them down and they’re done for. It’s practically burning money.

While there’s some truth to that statement, I realised very quickly upon using up a sample that a friend gave me, that burning a scented candle can be very relaxing. Especially while you  read a book or put on a face mask. Pamper nights. I don’t do enough of those.

I lean towards scents that remind me of a beach holiday. I am all over Island Spa, Seaglass and Sun & Sand. I have the latter two, but have yet to part with my money for Island Spa. It’s the one scent I keep smelling when I return to the store.

I haven’t tried any other brands yet, but I might once I finish one or two of these.

Now if you’ll excuse me… I’m off to relax.

The minimalism bandwagon.

One of the things that intrigues me about the whole minimalism movement is the fact that it has its basis in intentional living. You know, the idea that you live conscientiously and intentionally, making every single thing count. Truth be told,...
