Hello My lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well and are having a fabulous weekend so far. I've been a little absent from the blog recently and it feels great to be back into the swing of things. I'll be talking more in depth around how I've been feeling the last few weeks, however, I think some time away has done me good. We are all human and sometimes we need some time out away from everything. Even though I have been quiet on the blog you'll always find me posting on Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat so I'd love you to pop over and say hello if you ever get the chance. You'll find me all over social as @SophiaMeola.
So, I thought I would throw things back and talk about some candles that I have raved about on my blog before. Back in 2014 (yup, 2014!) I wrote not one but two reviews on the Primark Deluxe Candle range and my love for them continues to grow. Since then I have also featured the candles in a selection of different gift guides and honestly for £2 I don't think you can wrong. There is nothing I love more than lighting a few candles after a stressful few days to de-stress or even light up when I am having a good ol' pampering session. I have tried so many different candles on the market from real luxurious splurges and to affordable hughstreet brands but honestly, I always turn back to these ones from Primark and I make sure to always have a stash on hand. The Pink Grapefruit and the Sea Salt and Lavender candles are my latest editions and I couldn't resist sharing them with you. Pink Grapefruit has a fresh fruity scent whereas Sea Salt and Lavender has more of a calming therapeutic scent - both gorgeous fragrances that I would repurchase both again. These candles are super affordable, smell beautiful and look cute...what more could you want?!
There is no precise size on the jars, however, just by looking at them you can tell that you are receiving a very generous amount of product. They claim to have a 30 hour burning time which I think is pretty spot on. I have continuously burnt these candles over a weekend period and there still seems to be product left over. However, t will vary from candle to candle but for £2 I think the burn time is incredible. Also, the great thing is you never waste with these candles. The flame itself burns the entire product evenly so you are not left with a big hole in the middle with wax that doesn't melt around the edges! The packaging is very simplistic but I think that with these candles less is definitely more. They have a shabby chic feel and there are so many different colours and fragrances to choose from so there is something for everyone. I have gone through so many of these candles now and I actually depot and DIY them into some pretty new beauty storage for my blogging office. I add some ribbon and sparkly pieces and they transform into the perfect brush holders and storage. If you ever have any candle jars left over I would definitely recommend you give a little DIY a try.
I think it is safe to say that I have a teeny tiny obsession with these candles and I can't wait to see which scents they release over Autumn and Winter. I hope you all enjoyed talking candles with me this evening - I would love to hear your thoughts on them. Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and i make sure to read every single comment…they really make my day!
What are your thoughts on these candles? Would you give them a try?
Lots of Love
