Yankee Candles, Fruit Beer and Perfume

After a bit of a break to read my book, I decided to go and pick up a new Yankee Candle that suits this nice warm weather, and then called into the Supermarket to get something nice for tea.

I chose the medium sized Midsummers Night jar candle, and two of their votives.
Midsummers night has quite a sexy, almost musky spicy scent to it, I chose the medium candle as I find that the large ones can be hard to light without burning your hand or making a mess of the jar when you get to the bottom.
The Lemon Lavender scent is quite sharp and fresh, and if I find I like the payoff I'll probably buy it in medium, alongside the Lime and Vanilla which is also gorgeous, and has quite a sugary kick.
Soft blanket is soft and girly and is my old favourite that I always go back to. My jar of it has just ran out so I thought I'd buy an emergency one!

When I got back I had a snack of a low fat prawn cocktail with avocado and a fruit beer. I rarely drink beer, but when the sun comes out a fruit beer can just hit the spot :D

And finally, when Alex got home she pulled this out of her bag! She loves this scent on me so I think it's a bit of an Irish present hehe, but in all honesty it's a fun sweet perfume that I like as a change from my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle <3

Now I'm off to make tea, which is going to be barbecued chicken with moroccan couscous, sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella, salad, and some crusty bread. I might even send Alex out for some Lemonade so we can have Rosé spritzers :D
