Day 5 scented 30day blog challenge
Well this is going well. I am using my Instagram to challenge me to get writing everyday again.
So yes, the majority of these blogs are written on a red London bus and spell checked on my very short lunch. So I do apologise.
And I am loving it.
Today’s image was about scented and this is where I fall down.
I do like candles but I don’t go crazy for them. I certainly don’t melt them all year round and buy them constantly.
I get the same Yankee candle every year from a family member. I sometimes buy a few candles from homescence and I bought Aldi’s Faux Malone candle and quite liked that.
The truth is when it comes to smells I either like citrus or fresh linen. All my cleaning products are lemon scented. I am not a fan of plug ins but we have a dog now and I am paranoid about doggy smells. So we have a citrus plug in by the door.
I do love flowers but I hate how wasteful they are. I am a crazy plant lady and I don’t care. If I could my house would be filled with peonies and freesias all year round but budget and wastefulness won’t allow it! I drool over peoples images of Peonies!!
My tiny English suburban garden
my garden at the moment is in full bloom we have a crazy Rose bush that has been spliced. Last year we had dark pink roses every where and one dog rose. This year we have hundreds of dog roses and one dark pink one.The garden smells so good.
When I am at home I always open up all the windows and let the house breath!
Smells are so important and I do have a preference but I like to keep things simple and fresh.
My most amazing plant is a lemon balm that my local Fish and chip shop gave my mum as a cutting. I put it outside and it died but I didn’t give up on it!
Do neglect it sometimes but it is really hardy and when you water it or move it the whole room smells of lemons. I have made tea with it and you can add it to salads. It is the most wonderful smell in the world.
so that’s it!
I would rather my house just smell fresh and clean then of fake smells but with a little pooch I don’t really have a choice.
What does your home smell like?
