With the entire blogosphere in the blogmas/vlogmas spirit, I figured I'd try to join in as much as I can. Most of my content this month will be Christmas & winter related so I figured I could name it blogmas and just do as much as possible.

I named this day 2 because I went and changed my Hot Drink Station post (which I am obsessed with) to day 1... it seemed appropriate. 

For today, I want to talk about one of my favorite topics: candles.

I love candles so much it's actually kind of embarrassing. With the introduction to Evil Queen, I've been burning candles all year round and while fall candles are pretty much my favorite, I'm always reminded that Christmas and winter scents are king. 

This year, I have a nice little collection to burn through, mostly Evil Queen & Bath and Body Works. There is just something about the house smelling like winter that makes the holiday season much more special. I mean, who doesn't love drinking hot chocolate, watching Christmas movies by the Christmas tree with a holiday candle burning? It's my IDEAL NIGHT.

I try to buy the same scents every year because I like what I like and I stick with it. I try to branch out but I'm much more picky with my holiday scents than my fall ones. Sometimes there is just a bad holiday scent and I can't stomach it.

For this year, these are my favorites:

Bath & Body Works Winter Candy Apple: I've already burned through an entire candle and have another one on it's way. I also bought two lotions & a soap in this scent because it's so good. It's a heavy winter scent but still feels very light. It's not overpowering but has a really nice smell. It's a must try in my opinion and probably my #1 favorite.

Bath & Body Works Mahogany Teakwood: This smells like the inside of an Abercrombie store or the really hot boy you loved in 8th grade.  It is my go-to winter scent year after year and I never tire of it. It is so good it's almost impossible to believe how good it smells.

Bath & Body Works Twisted Peppermint: I have this burning right now and it's more faint than I remember but it's still so good. Just a touch of peppermint fills the air and you feel like you're inside a candy cane.

Bath & Body Works Marshmallow Fireside: This is a candle that everyone in the blog and Youtube world go nuts for and rightfully so. It is warm, woodsy but also a little sweet. I can't wait to start burning it! 

From Evil Queen, she changes things up every year. I forget what I had last year but this year I bought Shimmy Down My Chimney & Ice Cold -- both are heavenly, like all of her candles! 

What are your favorite winter/holiday candles? Suggestions below please! ;)
