Light up your Life with Primark Candles!

 Happy Sunday guys! Hope you're all having a nice relaxing day!

Today I took the chance to organise my room... And essentially my life.

So in said process, I noticed my tea light jar was near empty, so I delved into my stash to solve this issue. I always have spare tea lights stored away because the thought of running out makes me stressed... Does that happen to anyone else?!

I normally swear by IKEA's vanilla and apple scented tea lights, but since it's a bit of a trek to my nearest IKEA just to restock on candles, I thought I would have a look in Primark for some. And boy did they do good. 

I was immediately drawn to the Vanilla and Coconut scent as vanilla is my all time favourite scent in candles.. So they made their way into my basket without any second thoughts. My eyes then fell on the Watermelon and Citronella tea lights purely for how colourful they were! You get a selection for pink, turquoise and baby blue tea lights in the pack. I went over expecting to hate the scent since I normally don't like watermelon scents as I find them quite overpowering. However this scent is quite possibly the nicest fruity scent ever.

 Primark also does an actual candle of this scent, which along with the tea lights, I couldn't resist.

The tea lights are £1.50 per pack of 30 and the candle is £3. So cheap for such amazing scents! The tea lights also burn for around 3 hours and the candle is still going for me and I've burned it every day for a about a month!

So whilst restocking my jar, not only did I notice how pretty they all look together, but how amazing they were making my room smell before I even burnt them! The scents are strong enough to notice but not too overpowering to give you a headache. I mean look how gorgeous they all look together, combined with my apple tea lights from IKEA:

I store my candles in a medium sized jar from IKEA and keep it on my windowsill like you can see from the first photo. I love how the sun reflects off the jar and emphasises all the colours.

The colours together and scent just remind me of summer, I love them.
If you haven't already, go check out Primark's selection of candles, so cheap yet so good!

There's a few ranges of candles and can be found on their website which I will link here for you:,scented-candles/

Let me know if you have tried any of the other scents so I can be sure to go pick some up!

Lots of love,
