The Autumn/Winter Candle Burner And Wax Melts You MUST HAVE In Your Home | Kringle Candle Company Are The Bomb!



homeware, candles, wax melts, home, christmas, autumn, kringle, kringle candle company, lifestyle, electric candle burner,

Evening my little ones. 

I am sooooo sorry I have been MIA for a bit, I have been taking a little break from blogging and most of social media. I just needed some 'me' time and time away from the negativity that surrounds the social media circle. 

I have made a lifestyle change and with that I have decided that I will be only posting once a week now instead of the usual twice. I just won't have enough time and I don't want to rush the posts and they end up being all sorts of shoddy. So, I have worked it out that I will be only posting on a Monday for a while until I sort my schedule out. I will be posting on a Monday at an earlier time than I have been posting and if I can fit in an additional post during the week I will aim for a Thursday. 

I am keeping it real with you guys as I don't really want to drop it down but it's a realistic approach. 

:) 

I have done a couple of posts now on all things Autumn related and this post is no exception. I have noticed that you guys have responded highly to the Autumn themed posts and I have a mad feeling that you are going to LOVE this one just as much. 

I am a massive fan of Autumn and Christmas (really?! Ha) and along with that I am a huge fan of Autumn and Christmas themed homeware. Again no surprise there. This time of year is full of everything cosy, warm and indulgent and that's what I love most. 

My happy place is to be surrounded by the things I love. I love a good bubble bath, hot chocolate, book, cosy pj's, movies and CANDLES!!! 

Candles just make an atmosphere don't they?! They are calming, thought provoking and smell freaking amazing. 

For a few years now I have been in love with a candle company, I heard about them from another blogger and bought their candles and absolutely loved them. When I went to buy some more the website had closed down and I was gutted. I saved my last candle because I didn't want to burn my very last one. 

Then.... They made a come back and I couldn't be any happier. The company I am talking about is Kringle Candle Company. 

And they amazingly and kindly sent me the below to try out and review.

I love Kringle Candle Company because their scents are true to their descriptive name. They are the most realistic I have ever smelt.

 There's nothing worse than lighting a candle and the smell you thought was going to fill the room actually was the complete opposite to what is named and it smells like absolute crap. I love their candles SO much and I would even say beat all the candle companies out there that I have tried. 

I have been in contact with a super lovely lady called Louise at the company and she offered to send me their 'Electric Melt Burner', 4 of their new 'Holiday' collection wax melts, two more of their older holiday melts and one of my favourites 'Hot Chocolate'. I was allowed to choose which burner I would like too and I couldn't be more grateful. I am a sucker for candles so I was super excited to receive the items. 

Thank you so much Louise at Kringle Candle Company for being so generous. 

Kringle Candle Company are online only and are the 'first and only authorised website totally dedicated to Kringle scented candles in the UK'. Their candles are all-white which means fellow bloggers you're in for a visionary treat as they 'emit the purest, brightest light possible' which makes it perfect for your backdrops. 

Score!

My room is white and rose gold/copper so obviously I went for the copperesque burner to match. It's so freaking cute, just look at it. The have LOADS to choose from too. This one is the 'Cello Electric Burner' and is new in, it has been developed in partnership with Woodwick. 
If you don't know what an electric burner is - it's a burner that allows fragranced wax cubes or tarts to be used in the home without the need of tealights. That's right, that means no naked flame. The wax melt is placed on the clear dish, you plug the burner in and switch it on. The bulb in the centre of piece gently warms the wax until it melts like a normal candle. This means it's safe (to an extent) to use in the home where there are children and pets about. 

Cool huh?! I think so! 

This currently retails at £29.99

If you like this one, you can find it here

The wax melts they sent me below are super freaking awesome, they couldn't be more 'me'. I cannot wait to burn them all. They have SO many different scents on the website so there is definitely something for everyone. These are perfect Christmas presents!

 This one is 100% my favourite, it actually smells like Christmas. Christmas tree's with a hint of a burning fire. Just think Christmas morning or Christmas Eve. It's a beautiful smell and I will be burning this in December fo'sure. This is Christmas in a candle and all the candles retail at £2.69 which I feel is a bargain considering these burn up to 20 hours and are actually quite large.

I am totally not the best at describing scents because... Well I am just not. Ha. But this one reminds me of Winter completely, imagine walking through the woods and you can smell Fir trees and the earth around you. It's so fresh and in their description there are notes of a moss smell, which is what I have been trying to pin point and now I know that was the smell.

Get it here.

Bar the 'Cosy Christmas' one this is a mega favourite, this just smells like a god damn hot chocolate. The after smell (once you have sniffed)resonates with you and leaves you feeling satisfied. It's really hard to describe without you smelling it for yourself but the primary scent is cocoa. I LOVE IT!

Writing about these products just makes me love them more because they truly are amazing. This one holds a scent of cinnamon - spices, the site describes 'scent of bread' and 'warm heath-side aromas'. This is totally true and is so warming, they all remind me of the good memories around this time of year and leaves you feeling strangely positive.

This one actually made me laugh because when I first took a sniff of it, it reminded me of a really nice smelling man. Ha. The company describes the scent as 'cheery', with a 'citrus berry essence amid fresh mahogany'. Now, excuse my ignorance but I am not too sure on what mahogany is meant to smell of. Wood? Either way this smells soooo good!! Definitely a masculine scent this one.

'Winter Wonderland' is not dissimilar in scent to to the 'Snow-Capped Fraser' melt. It is softer I would say but totally smells of pine and woodlands, this scent brings back a lot of memories when I used to go on autumn walks with my parents. It's so cute. 

Get it here.

The last one in my collection is 'Leaves' and this was the one I was most excited to see. I have been searching high and low for a UK candle company to bring out an Autumn smelling candle. America have loads and I was like "YAS" when I got this. 

It's really hard to get a scent that is exactly like leaves. When I first smelt this I could 100% smell the citrus and spice vibes and the after smell brings out the wood aroma. I can't wait to burn this one and see what it's like in a room. 

Get it here.

 The real test was to actually try the burner and candles out. I wanted to test the least Christmas scented one out because lets face it, it's October, so I went for my 'nice man' smelling one 'Frosted Mahogany'. 

I plugged it in, placed the plate on top and then popped the melt in the centre ready to burn. 

I would say it took around 5 minutes for the bulb to warm up the wax melt and when it did I was TOTALLY impressed, the smell was immense and filled the whole room with in minutes. 

You are advised not to leave this burning for longer than 3 hours which is the norm for a heated product and not to obviously touch the plate whilst hot. 

The light this burner gives off is truly magical, it just brings this season to life, it's warm, glistening and super cosy. True to the description of their products this gives off the most amazing lighting. I am so impressed it's unreal. 

See below at the results.

I will only post about products that I truly believe in and love and I tell you now, if you love homeware, candles and this season you NEED this is your home. 

Yes, I was sent this product but if you have followed my posts for a while you know if there is something I don't like I will state it. Being sent a product does not cloud my judgement as I have been sent things that I don't get on with and haven't featured. 

This company is amazing, the products are awesome and their pricing is so competitive. This electric burner and melts would make a pretty special gift for someone. With Christmas coming up why not treat yourself or your loved ones because you will not be disappointed that's fo'sure! 

My mum is in love and wants one for herself and my Nan. Ha. In fact she's trying to steal mine from me. 

NO! 

I really hope you liked this post, it was a lengthy one but I wanted to give you as much info as possible.

Lyric Pranking My Friends And Family | Was It A Fail Or Success?



lyric pranking, family, glamour magazine, autumn, hot chocolate, pyjamas, fun,



Oh hello there guys :) 

I hope everyone is good?!

Long time no speak. Well actually it's been 1 week. Ha. I apologise for taking a week break from the blog. I haven't been well at all with a sickness bug that has been going round and also I have suffered really badly with anxiety. It was on an all time high. I had never been THAT bad before and I cannot say I enjoyed it much. 

The struggle was real. 

I may do a blog post on it soon actually because it's horrible feeling like you're on your own with something. I like keeping it real.

All that being said, I am on the mend now annnnnnnd I AM BACCCKKKK BITCHES!!! :) 


I am sooooo totally happy that it's this time of the year, like I feel this is when I am at my most happiest. My hayfever buggers off for a bit, it's all so cosy and you can over indulge in the nice things. Speaking of nice things, I am doing a couple of collabs with some awesome brands soon. One of which I have loved for a while now and it involves something for your home. That is all I am saying. 

In the words of PLL (Pretty Little Liars, if you did not know) 

"Got a secret, can you keep it, swear this one you'll save, gotta lock it in your pocket, taking this one to the grave."


Today's post I have mixed it aaappp a little bit, Calvin Harris has nothing on this mash up. :D 

I thought I would take it upon myself to do a fun post that has actually been circulating on YouTube, so I thought why not bring it to my blog. 

You obviously have guessed from the title what it is and that is right, I have been lyric pranking my friends and family. 

"Mwahahahaaha."

selfie, freckles, faux freckles, makeup artist, beauty blogger, pout, natural, no makeup, soap and glory, drugstore,



 If you're not familiar with the concept I will briefly explain it to you now. This is something that you take away and do yourself and man didn't I cry laugh throughout this process. It was hilarious!

So, lyric pranking is as it suggests. You find someone either a family member or friend (I would not suggest your boss, ha) and start a conversation off with them (even better if they message you first) using lyrics from a song. The aim is to see if you can keep the lyrics flowing as a conversation before they figure out what you're doing. 

It will make more sense when you see the screen shots in a minute! 

Now was it a success or fail? 

It was a half and half mix I'd say. One person I pranked really fell for it and I just could not stop laughing at his response, a couple of people were a little worried about me, "hahahaha" and a couple got it straight away and I was quite impressed be it a little disappointed. 

Anyway. Enjoy the following and if you're like me and love to have a laugh this will be so much fun for you. Just pick your recipients carefully. 


Lets GOOOOOO!!!!


Ha, so the below is the most hilarious. My friend Scott who I used to work with years ago got back in touch recently and I got him good and proper. I thought he would be a prime candidate for this prank as he is a little gullible. Ha, sorry not sorry Scott!! :) 

I decided to start the conversation off with Justin Bieber's 'Sorry' lyrics and this boy was hooked! :D 

This is how it went down...

I got pretty far with the lyrics and it finally clicked when I got to the iconic part of the song! I was literally wondering how long I could go on for before I put the poor sod out of his misery. Scott, you're a babe!! And I really am 'Sorry'. 


Next, I decided to quote Awolnation's song 'Run' to one of my ladies Jess. This made me laugh as it could of gone two ways. She would of got it or she would just ignore me when I started to seem really weird. More so than usual. 

She didn't write back after my last message. So I waited a while and then gave up the ghost. She was worried. Ha ha. 

This is how it went...

Next, my friend Gathan got it straight away!! I thought I best quote a song that would be familiar to him but not familiar enough that he would get it. He got it and I was so peeved. Ha. He could of just played along. 

Kudos to him though! I quoted an MJ song and boom here were the replies!

My friend Jack was up next and I think we met on Tinder yeeeeaars ago. I haven't spoken to him for a while so I thought why not! 

I started sprouting Plan B's 'Recluse' to him and he practically got it straight away. I mean COME ON... HOW RUDE!!! Ha. 




lyric pranking, youtube, trend, beauty blogger, family, fun, autumn, pranks,



This next one cracked me up the most, it was the response on who this person thought I was meant to be sending the message to. This screen shot is from my good friend Arthur. We have been friends for yeeeeearrrs. He read my first message which was quoted from Gnash's song 'I Hate You I Love You' and ignored it. I thought 'oh gosh, he is totally going to think I am a weirdo' so I wrote the next line of the song hoping he would snap the bait. He did and his response was priceless to me. 

lyric pranking, youtube, trend, beauty blogger, family, fun, autumn, pranks,

Literally insert crying, laughing face right here. He thought I was meant to be sending that message to my lad mate Jez who has totally ghosted me for almost a year. To be honest. I was really tempted to message him in these series of pranks but he already thinks I am in love with him and want to marry him and have his babies. TOTALLY NOT TRUE IF YOU'RE READING THIS!You're NOT all that :P But yeah, him thinking that as his first response made me LOL. 


Next up was my Auntie and she is an MJ fan just like me, so I started the convo off with 'Who Is It' lyrics. She got it pretty quickly too. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?! I would of totally been fooled. Clever little eggs! Ha.

Finally, was Hat!! I really confused the poor girl! I was quoting The Mirror Trap's song 'Pigeon Chest' to her and she was just baffled and then ignored me. RUDE! :D

 And that was the end of my pranking session. Out of all of them I think Scott wins for the most dramatised responses and then Arthur's just full on creased me. 

Please, if you and your friends/family have a sense of humour, give it a go. It kept me entertained for hours and makes for amusing memories. 

I hope you enjoyed this post today and I have lots of gorgeous posts coming up soon for y'all.
