I am linking old Blogmas posts. I follow so many amazing bloggers and I get jealous of their photos (Hello Boxwood Ave) BUT I am improving so I want to be encouragement for all of those out there. Your photos get better with time so don't get down on yourself! I didn't do Blogmas in 2015 as I was a pharmacy resident and didn't have time.
Every year I post about candles because I don't own very many. I am extremely sensitive and picky about smells so when I find one I like, I gobble it up (no pun intended to the recently celebrated Thanksgiving turkey).
Always and forever this candle will be my absolute favorite. It smells exactly like a Christmas tree without being overbearing or harsh. If you are looking for the prefect holiday candle, I would highly recommend this one. I've never heard of anyone not liking the smell.
My second favorite holiday candle is this from Target. It's called Mulled Cider and after years of extensively searching (I bought it two years ago) I cannot find another. It's sadly running out and I hope one day I can find a replacement.

Last year I won free tickets to an event at West Elm. I won some really neat stuff at the event too which was so awesome. I won a candle but I didn't really like the smell of it. I decided to keep it though because it's a cute pineapple and it fits in with my bedroom decor. I ended up finding the candle below instead and buying it. I love the smell. You can't buy this exact packaging this year, at least not currently online, but you can buy the candle in a different shape, which is really cute, and as a diffuser.
