Frostbeard studios! Candle love!

By now you know that Kelly and I love candles. You probably even know that we tend to be quite picky with our candles and only like certain, specific scents. If you follow us on social media or have read previous posts you may know that Morrisons Vanilla Sugar candles are our absolute favourite in the history of ever. Our Mum always has them burning in the kitchen, they smell scrumptious and for 1 English pound, they are incredibly hard to beat. So with that being said we very rarely purchase any other candle. We do go through phases though, like last year I bought a few from Michaels craft store at Christmas time because they were Christmassy and I couldn't help myself, but while they did smell rather yummy, they didn't really burn the best and left a lot of waste and back to Morrison's it was. However, when I came across all these cute as can be book themed candles popping up on Instagram, I had to have a little nosy and do my research to find out where they came from. Hello Frostbeard Studio! :) Looking through their website made the book worm in me squeal, I simply love the names of every single one of  their candles and how they instantly put a smile on my face. I also love that the people who make these candles are artists who built their own business and make these delightful candles themselves. How inspiring and awesome is that? They have a studio in Northeast Minneapolis, in the Arts District and they even do open evenings where you can learn about how the candles are made. :)  

Onto my little treat... I thought the box and sticker was adorable when it came, it was all small and compact and I thought it was an extra special touch that they wrote my name on it too! :) Can you guess which candle I picked?...

I, of course, loved all the candles that paid homage to Harry Potter, such as 'Wizardy Buttery Drink'
but  'Reading at the Café' drew me in and got my attention. Just the thought of curling up in a cozy corner of a café, with a cup of coffee and a good book made me grin. In addition to the fact that this candle has a Roasted coffee and Chocolate pastry scent...SOLD!!! :)

So, check for adorable packaging and check for winning names, but how did this candle fair when burning? I have to say that it burns beautifully. I don't think I have ever had a soy candle before, I am assuming that's what makes the flame so big? Please correct me if I'm wrong. But I love it, it truly shines so bright and makes me smile. The scent is wonderful and very strong, something I mentioned earlier, that I can be very picky with, but though powerful, this candle is not overpowering. You can definitely smell a rich coffee and chocolate and it leaves the house smelling incredible. At $16 it's a little expensive for what I would normally want to spend on a candle, but I definitely think I will purchase one again in future for a treat, as I can appreciate the work, love and artistry that has gone in to making it. Furthermore, there is something about this specific candle, 'Reading at the café', that reminds me of Christmas and being home with my family in England, if lighting this candle each day fills the house with these wonderful memories, I think I might just have to stock up now, no matter the cost! :)

Be sure to go and check them out, I think they would make the perfect gift for book lovers this Christmas! :)

Love Lucy xx
