PSA: New favorite candle

My friend Jessica gave me this Bougie candle as a housewarming gift and I am addicted. I love some expensive candles. No really, if someone offered me a Range Rover or 2,800 $30 candles... I am taking the candles. Little luxuries people. I am always trying new ones and this is the best one I have found in a long, long time. 

And it doesn't hurt when you are done you can use it to store things. Who knew q-tips could look so good. 
Ever wondered how to clean out your old candles?
1)Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. 
2) Cover a baking sheet in tin foil. 
3) Stick your candle in upside down. 
4) Leave in the oven for about 5 minutes, or until the wick drops. 
(I highly recommend keeping an eye on it and scooping it out pretty quickly after the wick drops)
5) Let it cool and then wash it out with soapy water. 


  1. Or you can put it in the freezer and then use a regular knife to crack it and pull out the pieces. Works equally well and no messy wax to deal with!

  2. I have often pondered--but never purchased--the expensive candle. I've been complaining that I've never liked the smell that came with our house when we bought it (lovely, i know), so I'm thinking I just may pull the trigger on this guy! Thanks for the tips on cleaning them out too!
