Yankee Candle Bliss

Okay, I have a confession to make. I have never really been one for buying candles very often (or at all). I think in my whole life I have had one miniature Yankee Candle from Christmas time (Christmas Eve I think it was called) and that was only at the Christmas just gone. 

HOWEVER, changed person right here, oh yes. I have got a bit more interested in candles lately and I am beyond excited to be visiting Bath and Body Works on my next trip to Florida in June, but there has been a new opening of a Yankee Candle shop in the village I live in... it was near impossible to resist temptation when you could smell it walking past the store. 

I popped into the shop today and couldn't resist walking out with a candle for myself. 

After pulling the lid off of 'Salted Caramel' I just couldn't put this candle back on the shelf. I got the largest size priced at £19.99. It smells absolutely amazing. I'm not the best at describing scents so I am going to use what the Yankee website describes it as:

Sweet surrender is yours with our luscious gourmand confection of burnt sugar, sea salt, and smooth vanilla caramel.

It literally smells delicious. I am burning it right now as I am sat writing this blog post and my room smells beautiful already. I think I will definitely be making another trip into the Yankee Candle shop very soon! Candle addict... on it's way!

What is your favourite Yankee Candle scent?

Disney Parks Tag!

Okay, so I think it's pretty clear by this point that I love all things Disney, so when I saw the Disney Parks Tag, I was all over it. So, here we go...

The park I have chosen to answer the tag on is, of course, Magic Kingdom:

1. How many times have you been to this park?
I'm not too sure how many times I have visited the park exactly. I know I have been to Orlando, Florida 5 times and they have been for two or three weeks at a time, so I'm not sure how many times exactly I visited Magic Kingdom in this time. 

2. What's your favourite land and why?
My favourite land in Magic Kingdom has to be Fantasyland (just over Frontierland slightly!). Fantasyland is just so whimsical and is home to Cinderella's Castle and lots of rides including Winnie the Pooh ride and, one I'm so excited to ride is the Journey of the Little Mermaid which has opened not so long ago. It is also home to the Be Our Guest restaurant and the whole land is just breathtaking. 

3. What's your favourite ride and why?
My favourite ride is in Frontierland and just has to be Splash Mountain. Frontierland is just amazing and brilliantly themed. Splash Mountain is my favourite ride because it is just so cute and it's a log flume as well so is a great way to cool down in the Orlando heat. 

4. What's your favourite show?
It just has to be Wishes. It is an amazing firework display over the Castle in Magic Kingdom and it is so beautiful. I know a lot of people can get quite emotional at this show and it really is amazing to just stand and watch.

5. What is your favourite thing to eat in the park?
Now I am quite a fussy eater, and my favourite thing to eat is probably going to be so boring, but I love just eating the chicken tenders and fries that you can get all around the park as it is just so American (and you can't beat a Mickey's premium ice cream sandwich for pudding!).

6. What do you want to do at the park that you have never done before?
I am so excited because this is actually happening in June 2015, but I am going to Orlando, Florida for 2 weeks with my best friend and we're just going to do everything at Disney because she has never been before so that is what I want to do. I have never been with a friend before so I'm looking forward to it!

7. If you were a cast member, who would you want to be?
It would just have to be Belle! Belle is one of my favourite princesses, alongside Ariel, but I just love her dress and her hair and she is just amazing.

8. What is your favourite story from the park?
It's not so much a story, but it is something we do every time we go to Magic Kingdom and that is taking the ferryboat over Seven Seas Lagoon over to the Magic Kingdom park entrance. It's just a slow little ferry ride over the lagoon and the castle is in view and it just gets the excitement building and is just an amazing moment leading up to the park.

So that was my Disney Parks Tag! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did writing it. I am even more excited now.
