Autumn Essentials: Candles & Colouring edition

So now Autumn is here we can officially have an excuse to get all comfy and cosy, and what better way to do that than with some candles and fab colouring products. I thought I would share some amazing items and companies that are essential to help you get that Autumn feeling just right.

Aromand Candle is a new company for me to check out and they kindly sent me this perfect Autumn candle to try out. Aromand Candle sell some lovely home essential's including candles, diffusers, room sprays, essential oils and bath salts. The Berries & Black Pepper candle* looks just the part in my living room for the Autumn season with its red wax and cute classic design. This candle is £25 available on

Thatched Candles is my Vanilla Bean candle* from the lovely little Etsy store ThatchedCandles. It comes in the most gorgous glass jar that can be used for many uses after use and best of all it has a woodwick! Woodwicks have become the most perfect Autumn candles to go for, they create the best atmosphere with their slight crackling effect. These are handmade to order and come in a variety of other amazing scents including Ground Coffee, Jam Tart, Lemon Curd and Chocolate Orange. They are £11.99 plus shipping.

Yankee Candle have some of the most amazing Autumn scents out their, with the fireside treats being my absolute favourite of them all. I love the look of the massive jars with the designs, imagery and all. The fireside treats scent for my is a super cosy and relaxing one, nothing I like better than to burn this of an evening and smell the amazing soft, warm scent in the room.

We visited Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet last month while having a few days in Chester and the Yankee Candle store there is amazing. They have so many scents, styles and variations to chose from and have amazing deals. Some of the larger candles were only £11.00 each which I think is incredible. I managed to get a cute Bunny Cake candle which I know is totally out of season but it's looks super adorable and I can put it up to burn in the spring time next year, not a problem! 

I also purchased the Cranberry & Pear car freshener that smells incredible, and is currently the flavour of the month. So as I'm going back to Cheshire Oaks next week I think I shall have to pick up a large jar of that also, which I think is a perfect all year round fragrance. 

Now my favourite candles and company of all time is Flamingo Candles, which you may know if you have been following me a while. They do the best candles ever! I love the variety, their unique designs and scents that they create. The candles always look super stunning and are the prettiest ever for sitting lovely for your viewing/relaxing pleasure. Not only do they look amazing but they smell incredible also. If melts are more your thing then they do #TheMeltCrowd box which is delivered for only £10 a month including postage and packaging.

And lastly in candles is a new subscription box* on the block from Tinder Candles. They are a lovely company which make handpoured candles and melts from their home in Hampshire. They have created a box of their soya wax melts which comes beautifully presented for £12 a month including postage and packaging. They have an Etsy store over on TinderCandlesUK which sells gorgeous products including an Owl burner which is on my WishList. To get one of these cute subscription boxes delivered straight to your door or to just get more information - click here. 

So now you have created the best atmosphere with your perfect candle or melts, now you can relax with a good old colouring book to take them stresses away!

Johanna Basford has created some of my all time favourite adult colouring books, and her fourth release Magical Jungle* is no exception. Penguin have helped produce this amazing, creative, art inky trail colouring book full of jungle creatures big and small. These books are always made to the highest standards with their amazing thick crisp ivory papers allowing for the most beautiful pieces of work to be created. Johanna is the leading brand in the colouring book genre and her previous titles have already sold over 16 million copies worldwide. WowZa! This amazing colouring book is available in most large supermarkets, Waterstones and Amazon. RRP £12.99. 

Now as much as I love sticking to things I know and love, I adore exploring new things. I have recently come across an amazing brand full of new and exciting projects and products! The Spectrum Noir Colorista range* really has blown me (and my daughter) away! It's so new, exciting, bright and has incredible products that are like no other I have tried before. Their premium colouring pads have metallic foil accents, colourable glitter pages and more, which make for the most stunning pictures. 

Not only do they do the most stunning premium pads but also gorgeous colouring pencils and markers which all help create beautiful pieces. Everything just screams beauty and it all really is amazing to work with.
