Merry Christmas everyone!
One of the things I love most about this holiday is getting to spend time with family, relaxing, resting, eating and being off work. One of my favourite ways to wind down is to light some scented candles.
At work we did Secret Santa. I only started this new job a month ago and the company is quite big, so it did feel a little impersonal. I’m still a newbie and I only know a handful of people, but that was tackled by filling out wish lists. Our budget was £10. Unfortunately, we didn’t find out who gave us our gifts, but that was alright.
I asked for scented candles, a girly mug or nail polish, and my Secret Santa got me scented candles, which I was delighted with. I wasn’t expecting them to be this nice.
They came in a set of three from Anthropologie (I know because it said so on the gift bag haha), and smelt of pine needle and pine nuts. It’s such a lovely Christmasy scent. I love the gold chrome finish and the white and gold marble cardboard stand that they were presented in. I’ve left them like that on my window sill. When I light them up, I close the curtains, but leave them open enough for the candles to show.
Have a wonderful holiday everyone. Enjoy these moments with your loved ones and make the most of it. I will be going to church this morning, and then I’ll be helping my mother-in-law cook Christmas lunch/dinner. I’ll be spending today and tomorrow with the in-laws and on Wednesday, Julious and I will be heading to Luton to see my mum and stepdad. I’m looking forward to it!
How are you spending the holidays?
