SUMMER CANDLE PICKS


absolutely love burning candles, and I only have a few week's left to do so, because they are permitted in dorm rooms, haha. I'll have to rely on my scentsy, but honestly nothing beats the scents I find at Anthro, or local shops. There's something about a burning flame, and the ambiance it brings to my room.

I also have to admit candles are the perfect piece of decor just about on anything - shelves, countertops, bookcases, or outside patio. I'm trying to enjoy these summer scents for as long as possible, before I have to pack everything up.

Anyways, below are my top three picks for this summer season! List your favorite below in the comment section, I love finding new brands!





LEMON + SUGAR 



This one right here is my kind of scent when picking up a candle. Anything that has a hint of vanilla and sweet sugar is the best!! This is a local find and I am so glad I found it. It has a wooden stick in the middle instead of a black thread which is perfect because it holds the flame! 

And how cute is this mini glass jar? I love things that are simple and plain. It came with a gold foil lid which seals the deal! See what I did there? Lol. No okay, keep scrolling! 




COSTAL CAPRI 



This one smells so good! As you can see I need to light it more, haha! I love the copper lid, and the beautiful sea glass glow it brings to the blue jar in the sunlight.

It smells exactly like the name - very beachy, costal, and fresh. The size is just perfect for me too, plus through Anthropologie it's cheaper too! 



APRICOT & BASIL 



Another Anthropologie find! I love this scent so much. It's truly been the definition of my summer candle collection. I adore the packaging again on this one too.

I really don't buy too much fruit smelling products, I enjoy vanilla's, and desserts haha. But the blend of the apricot and basil is very unique and just light enough to not be overwhelming. I'm going to miss this candle once I move! It's honestly one of my faves.

  1. that lemon and sugar... where did you find it??
    I'll take anything citrus-y or vanilla. Although I did have this bourbon candle that smelled like spice and vanilla... it was amazing.

  3. I know almost nothing about candles, mostly because our old landlords forbid them in the apartments! But now that I have a house of my own, I should look into burning some again---this is a good place to start :)
