Autumn Candles - Bath & Bodyworks Dupes Under £4!

Do you ever watch Zoella's Bath & Body Works Hauls and want to weep just a lil' bit because you know none of those candles are available to you? Yeah me too. 

But fear not, I have the most affordable and 'good-enough-to-eat' scented candles that are available here in the UK! 

My love of Autumn meant I was determined to find some autumn scented candles, I personally feel they're the ultimate scent to make you feel cosy. There's pumpkin scents, spicy scents, sweet scents, the lot.

Home Sense // TK Maxx

Chesapeake Bay Candle - all £3.99

White Pumpkin - Sweet, slightly spicy.

Fall Foliage - Sexy man smell. Yep. It's a thing.

Cosy Cashmere - Vanilla, with a hint of spice. 

Tesco Home

Home Inspiration by Yankee Candle - 99p each. 

Apple Cinnamon Cider - It smells exactly true to its name, very Christmassy, 

B&M Stores

Essence Candles - £2.99

My mum spotted these candles and picked them up for me. I probably wouldn't of picked 'Apple Orchard' as I wanted spicy, sweet scents not fruity, but oh. my. god. this is my favourite.

Apple Orchard - Smells nothing like an apple orchard but like maple syrup and cinnamon. mmm.

Radiant Red Maple - Sweet, sugary, maple syrup scent (but not sickly sweet) with a hint of subtle spice. 

These are the ultimate Bath & Body Works Dupes looks-wise too. Make sure you leave them burning for long enough each time, so the wax melts evenly and you get the most out of the candle.
I am so over the moon I found these candles and that none of them were over £4! 

The burn-time is great so far, but despite that I feel like I should panic buy some more before I run out... possibly a bit dramatic when I've got 12 candles to burn! 

Do any of these satisfy your autumn candle cravings?

Keratosis Pilaris - What? Why? How Can I Make It Better?

I thought it was time I made a slightly more serious video on the harmless and very common skin condition 'Keratosis Pilaris'. It affects one in three people in the Uk, myself included. 

I've never really let it get to me, so I felt it was important to share that as I don't think it's anything to feel self conscious about! 

If you think this might help you or you have friends who might find this helpful or interesting, please watch and share!

Taking It All In

If I can urge you to do one thing this week, it'd be to get outside and take it all in. 
Bright Red/Orange Leaves

Living in a city for three years, meant my view of the seasons changing was limited. I left for uni in September, returned for weekend trips in November and the leaves would be all sorts of colours,  then home for Christmas in December and they'd be turning into mulch on the ground. 

I always used to come home and say 'I miss trees! They're so pretty!' and it was true! Every time I came home, a season had changed and I couldn't believe the beauty that came with it.

Red Berries

I'm finding it almost breathtaking, which sounds SO dramatic, I know. I can not believe the bright reds, firey oranges, popping yellows and lime greens that are shedding from the trees. Driving through the country lanes I'm seeing these pops of colour above me that I haven't been around to witness due to city dwelling during term time.

If you find yourself with a spare five minutes this week, just go outside and take in just how beautiful Autumn is. It becomes the norm, it happens every year and it's far too easy to take for granted the beauty of it all. 

Bright Yellow Leaves

It's always been my favourite time of year and I'm so happy to live in the countryside to appreciate it all properly. I've been getting excited, writing autumn to-do lists and lists of lovely autumnal things.

What's your favourite thing about Autumn?
