Blogmas Day 2: Mugs and Candles Galore

This is probably the randomest post I have ever come up with, but anyone who knows me well will know it is very Alice-appropriate. Maybe it's the time of night or maybe it's the fact I'm craving a cup of tea and sitting by the fire, but to me, mugs and candles are the perfect idea for a christmas present. And despite owning some of the best around, I've been further scouring the internet for some which will be ideal Secret Santa gift, christmas prezzies or just general 'well done me for making it to the christmas holidays' self love gift. Either way, I hope you like what you see. For me this is like mug and candle porn. I bloody love it.

What do you reckon? The quote from the bottom left is from the live action remake of Cinderella which has soon become one of my all time favourite films. It's just so so lovely it makes me feel warm and tingly just reading it! Another personal fave is the whale mug. Hello. coffee holder + biscuit holder + sea creature = fantasticness. And although I'm quite anti glass mugs, the one from Next would be super cute with mulled wine!

Molton Brown (frankincense and allspice) , Cowshed (knackered cow), Oliver Bonas (red berry and cinnamon), Ecoya (fresh pine needles), The White Company (sweet almond and frankincense) , Yankee (winter glow),  Jo Malone (roasted chestnut), John Lewis (frosted pine)
Although I don't own all of the above, I own a fair few and have heard rave reviews about the rest. I know some people are quite snobby about Yankee candles but I simply love them. I was given a set of three in a little cracker by one of my best friends (and I actually gave her the Serena Van Der Woodson mug in return!) and I love every single one in the collection but this one was my favourite. I also love everything Jo Malone, I think they smell so fresh, Jo 100% knows what she's doing in the candle world. Some of the others, I'm not sure if I've just lived under a rock my whole life, but I hadn't heard of Ecoya before coming across one of their candles in John Lewis. But this one has changed my life. It is literally like a christmas tree in a glass. Heavenly.

Sorry this blogmas is super late (unless you're not in the UK, in which case it's right on time)!

Ciao for Now!

  1. I love those mugs!! My favourites are the Disney ones, the whale one, Darth Vader and the bottom left quote.
    I've never had any of those candles but I'd love too. Can't find yankee candles anywhere here and shipping prices are so expensive :(
