‘tis that time of the week, where you’re not having the Monday blues but Friday just seems a long away – you might be feeling a little tired and you just may need a slight ‘pick me up’. For some people that could be a little splurge on something you’ve had your eye on, or having a cheat day in your diet plan? What is your pick me up?
For me, it’ll be going home, putting on my favourite face mask, lighting up a candle and doing some good ol’ internet shopping. I have been loving the Yankee Tarts and it’s more to do with the actual tart burner as opposed to the tart itself. Photos of the burner can be seen on my Instagram.
Lavender is known for relaxing the muscles and the scent has a calming effect, which helps one sleep better, etc. I’ve mentioned one of my favourite Cow and shed shower gels that has Jasmine essence in my pamper post. So a lavender candle kind of fits the bill no?
Behold my Yankee Lavender and Lemon candle. Now at first I was really sceptical as they’re two opposite scents, Lavender is known to be a relaxing aroma then you’ve got a citrus fragrance which is extremely energising. To my surprise they work extremely well paired up. The lemon scent fuses in with the lavender beautifully, the candle oozes out this gorgeous, soft, powdery scent and it’s extremely refreshing but soothing at the same time – if that makes any sense? I used it Sunday night and I don’t think I’ve felt that relaxed in a long time.
Two scents you wouldn’t really pair together, happen to blend in perfectly, one doesn’t over power the other. It’s true what they say, opposites do attract. So that’s my plan, light up my lavender and lemon candle, close my eyes and imagine I’m in a lavender field…mmmm.
What will you be doin’ to wind down mid-week?
