AFFORDABLE CANDLE HAUL

[ T H E  G A N G ]


I purchased all of these from my local Marshalls.

Every fall, Bath & Body works has blogger falling head over heels for the $2 for $22 sale.  I will confess, I use to be one of those bloggers but since discovering Marshalls, there are a lot of items I don't bother searching for in stores unless I need it right away.  

Marshalls carries affordable designer items ranging for home goods, gym clothes and designer bearings. 
I needed to restock my candles for the up coming holidays so I collected a few that I think are subtly holiday inspired. 


I ended up giving this to my mom because I thought she could appreciate this a bit more. It takes less than an hour for the scent to fill an average size bedroom.  The Lavender overpowers the scent of the Chamomile but together they create the perfectly romantic ambience for any setting. This isn't your everyday, "freshen up the room" kind of candle. It is definitely a special occasion kind of candle. 

5 hearts out of 5 for this candle. Definitely pick it up from your local Marshalls. 

Burn Time: Estimated 2 inches / 7 hours. 
* Smells exactly as described 
I burned through this candle in less than two weeks and I have no shame. I predicted this would happen hence why I picked up two.  This is one of those scents that you just have to try to fall in love. It does smell perfectly cozy.

5 out 5 hearts for this candle as well.

CONS: The wick splits when it burns. 

I absolutely have a crush on this candle! Definitely perfect for your gentleman who appreciate a nice smelling living space. The smell is subtle but fragrant enough to fill a room without compromising their .... "femininity?". It is literally perfect. Buy it!

5 out of 5 hearts for this beauty! 


 This might be my first semi-negative review. I have such mixed feelings about this candle because while the first hour of burn time was amazing and filled with christmas smelling goodness, the wicks went wonky after the first layer was burned. The wicks were shorter than the wax so its difficult to burn. I'll have to purchase a new wick and re-melt and mold this candle to enjoy the beautiful scent. As predicted in my Youtube review, my mom did enjoy this very gentle scent and we try to burn a little bit of this everyday. 

3 out of 5 hearts for this candle. Purchase at your own risk if you want to enjoy the smell.

  10. I'm a huge fan of the homegoods/marshalls/tjmaxx brand and find I do most of my shopping at just those 3 stores. Do you have any recommendations for any lightly scented candles, very mild? Anything too strong makes the hubby sneeze but I would still like to have a candle burning here and there.
