Life: Making Christmas Memorable With Yankee Candle


I don't know about you but the thing I love most about Christmas is probably decorating my house and having ALL the Christmas candles burning until every room smells like Santa's grotto. I'm a sucker for anything that looks, tastes and smells festive so when I was contacted by the lovely Kriselle at Debenhams asking if I wanted a little hamper of Christmas goodies from Yankee Candle, my heart little skipped a beat and obviously I said yes and practically ran to get the Christmas decorations out of the loft in anticipation.


A few days later my box of treats arrived and OHHMAAAGAAD, my house now smells heavenly. After having a little moan to my other half that I haven't managed to get my hands on a fancy advent calendar, I now have this years Yankee Candle advent calendar full of yummy smelling tealights and I can't wait until December 1st to come around so I can dig in!
I was also treated to a couple of jars in verrrrrry festive scents (Berry Trifle and All Is Bright) and then a lil box of the mini votives so I can pretty much light one in every room and my house will smell divine for the whole of the festive period.
Also inside was some adorable Christmas decorations to get a head start on making my home all cosy and Christmassy and I'm already counting down the days until I can FINALLY go and buy my Christmas tree!


Anyone who knows me knows how much I bloody love Christmas and opening my little hamper got me thinking about memories from years gone by and how much fun I have every year! The main highlight every year for me is getting super cosy on Christmas Eve morning with a hot chocolate and a heck load of blankets (and a tub of Celebrations, not gonna lie), and watching my favourite Christmas film EVER - 'Its A Wonderful Life'! It's an oldie but a goodie and it's become a little tradition of mine to watch it every year without fail with a hot chocolate in hand and this year I can't wait to watch it with my new Yankee Candles burning away in every corner! Decorating the Christmas tree at my grandparents is also a lovely fond memory I have, and now that I have my own house and my own tree to decorate, the fun just gets better!
