Oversized Scarves

Can we just take a minute out of our busy Saturdays to give some appreciation to the amazing cosiness that is oversized scarves?

It’s freezing in Dublin today, there are sprinkles of snow falling and I can barely feel my face from the cold, but my trusty chunky oversized scarf is, as always, keeping me warm and cosy.

I wear scarves a lot, but a particular favourite is this new blanket style scarf I got for Christmas from Zara. On days like today it’s my best friend!


Just another one to add to my ever growing collection. 

Hope you’re all having a great Saturday!

Cosy Candle Sundays

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen me share a picture of a Wonderwick Noir candle from the Country Candle Company a few days ago. I came to have this candle by accident really – I had bought some candles as gifts for all my lovely friends who came to celebrate my hen party a while back. There was a slight mix-up with my order however, so as an apology, the company very kindly sent me three candles from their Wonderwick Noir, Bloomsbury and Superstars collections in December.


As a serious candle addict, I am always on the look out for new candles. I go through candles quicker than I go through anything else, in fact, if I was to add up the amount I go through in a month let alone a year, I think I’d be in for a serious shock. But it’s love what can I say…!

Although all three candles are nice, it’s not very often I come across a new candle that stacks up against my old favorites, but the Wonderwick Noir candle in Spiced Lime is AMAZE. Apart from its sleek design, the scent is divine and the burn is brilliant. The candle’s wooden wicks claim to ‘throw the scent further, faster‘ and I have to say our living room smells amazing when it’s lighting – so far, so good. Aside from that, many candles claim to have long burn times but only burn down the centre leaving so much unmelted wax behind. This is a serious pet peeve of mine! But I was pleasantly surprised to find this candle burns evenly down its glass container. I’m loving it, so much so, I’m only lighting it for short periods of time so it doesn’t burn out too quickly.

If you’re a candle addict like me then this is one definitely worth checking out. Perfect for a cosy Sunday on the couch, which is exactly how I plan on spending my Sunday today while I nurse my flu.

Hope you’re all having a lovely cosy Sunday too!
