Brighten Up With Candle Light

BRIGHTEN UP WITH CANDLE LIGHT 
One of my favorite things to use for home décor to add a little extra something are candles. I love how they can be used to create so many different atmospheres depending on what ambiance you are in the mood for. From creating the perfect scene for a romantic dinner to creating a cozy living area on a cold winter night, or just simply trying to make your home smell special, candles can be used for all of the above plus some! Below are a few of my favorite candles! Click on the name of the candle located below the image for the link.

  4. Hey there Lauren! I have an absolute obsession with candles too. They really give a home a homey feeling. But just to let you know there have been studies conducted that air fresheners and scented candles can aggravate allergies and contain toxic substances... definitely not trying to deter you or anyone away from candles {because I still love them!} but maybe go towards soy and hypoallergenic candles!! :) http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/237311.php

    1. Thank you so much for your comment :). A few candles I included in this post are actually soy candles. I agree they really do give a house a homey feeling and I also agree that it is not great to burn them all the time. I mostly just light them when I'm in the mood for some candle light, I honestly like how they look setting out as part of home decor.

  15. I love all the candles! I love lighting a candle at night when I'm trying to relax. It helps me calm down before bed (although it's hard to light candles with a little kitten running around... I have to make sure they're out of reach!).

    1. Jo Malone seriously has some great scents! Plus you can always use the candle jar for something once the candle is gone.

  17. I love candles, I wish I could burn them in my dorm room. But whenever I go to visit my boyfriend I light like four at one time. We tend to go for cheaper ones you get at Target, but this post really makes me want to splurge!

    1. Target has some great candles :). The candle rule in college so got on my nerves but I definitely understand why they don't want candles burning.
