Yankee Candles Cranberry Ice


Welcome back to the relaunch of my new blog, which I'm pleased to say will be taking on a new approach the normal beauty and makeup reviews. So to kick off (the almost) beginning of a New Year, I give you the Yankee Candle Cranberry Ice.

This winter has been a particular chilly one, and one of my favourite ways to spend my evenings when its like this is to snuggle up with a wooly jumper, candle on a book in hand.

Surprisingly though, until this Christmas I had never tried a candle by the famous brand Yankee Candles which will no doubt shock a lot of you.

From my first experience I can say I've been completely converted and was aboslutely shell shocked at the how long these last in comparison to other brands, it was never ending and truly thought it was going to last forever!

Since reaching the end of my first Cranberry Ice, I've gone back to the shops and picked up another scent, Peony, which I will be starting once we reach 2018 and I can't wait.


As I begin my new journey with a brand new blogging space, I will be writing monthly updates on 'a little bit of everything' from trying new cafes, lifestyle tips, my travels and much much more.

I would love to hear in the comments below if their is anything in particular you would love to see me write about. In the meantime though I will let you all get back to enjoying the rest of your Christmas and I will see you in the New Year!

Until next time.

  1. I've never smelt the Cranberry Ice one but it sounds lovely. I do have some Yankee Candle wax melts. I cut them in half and each half lasts for so long. Currently got the Christmas Cookie one in my wax melter and it's definitely one of my faves! x

    1. No way! The advent calendar was amazing wasn't it. Really sets you up for Winter and keeping warm.

      I have never come across Sweet Apple, not even sure how that's possible! I will be changing this promptly!

  6. I must be the only person that hasn't tried Yankee Candle! The name of this candle though makes me want to try it. It sounds perfect, I might have to see if I can get my hands on it.

    1. Don't worry it wasn't until two months ago I hadn't either. It only takes one to fall in love with this brand!

  7. You're a girl after my own heart!
    I was exactly the same as you with loving smelling Yankee Candles but never biting the bullet and actually buying one until my best pal bought me one for my birthday last year. That was back in April and I've burnt it so much since and it still has a third left in it!
    I also got Christmas Eve for Christmas and it is my favourite scent of all time I think!!
    I definitely need to give Cranberry Ice a sniff as it sounds lovely.
