Yankee Candles

Now that Autumn has arrived I thought that I would pull some candles out to get me into the mood of the colder nights so I went and bought some new Yankee Candles. 
 This candle is the Mandarin Cranberry and it smells like autumn (if Autumn had a smell). Its so warm, and perfect for dark and cold Autumn/Winter nights which in England we get a lot of so I will defiantly be making use of this. (£5.99)
 This is a candle topper which goes on top of the jar above and it looks so pretty, especially when the lights are off and the light from the candle comes through its a must have for dark cold nights. (£8.99)

 How pretty does this look I feel all cosy just looking at it.
 These four candles are called samplers and are perfect if you want to try the sent out first before committing yourself to a jar, and once you find that perfect sent you cant get enough of you can buy the jar knowing you will love it. The scents starting from the left are Pink Hibiscus which is a nice light floral scent perfect all year round. The next one is Coastal Waters which is a lovely clean and fresh scent. Next is Wild fig which is an amazing warm fruity scent perfect for Autumn/Winter. The last candle is Beach Walk is a perfect fresh scent smells of a fresh relaxing holiday. (£1.80 each)
This is a candle holder for the samplers which are the candles above I think it is a perfect holder, and you an get so many different types to match any room it becomes a feature of the room. (£5.00)

The candle in the holder is called sparkling Lemonade, and it is a perfect fresh summer sent defiantly reminds me of an ice cold fresh lemonade. (£1.80) 

These candles can be used all year round but having them on now and having the lights off, and being all wrapped up warm in bed whilst the cold nights creep in is what Autumn/Winter is all about, and being able to smell all the lovely scents is a perfect night in. It reminds me Christmas is not to far away, and I am so excited I cant wait.

In July 2014 me and my family went on a 3 week holiday to America for my 18th birthday. We traveled around a few different places of America and I thought I would share some of the pictures I took with you.

I had been to America before but only to Disney World Florida, and when my mum asked me where I wanted to go for my 18th I knew it would have to be America, but I thought I should try somewhere other than Disney world and see what the rest of America had to offer. So me and my family traveled to New York, San Francisco, LA and San Diego. From New York to San Francisco we flew but, to everywhere else we hired a car and drove the coastal roads, and even though it took at lot longer to get there it was worth it with the views making up for it. being on the coastal roads and looking out the window made it feel life a movie scene and was one of my favourite parts of the holiday. Another favourite part of the holiday was visiting Muir Woods National monument in San Francisco where it was so peaceful and quite away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Not that I didn't enjoy the cities such as new york which when you stood in times square it felt like it was somewhere I had already been after seeing it so many times in films and TV programs. not far from times square was central park which seemed like a different world from the city where people where riding round on bikes and children playing and running round it was a place of clam and a place to unwind from the crowds of Manhattan. The whole holiday was full of amazing memories and I couldn't honestly pick 1 minute I wasn't happy, and i hope one day to return to these places for more happy memories with family and friends.
