Advice lighting

Relaxing with candles

My wonderful friend bought me this Dyptique candle for my birthday. I have lusted after these candles for years and she treated me to one, fun fact, after having Covid she still hasn’t got her sense of smell, so asked her friend to smell it!

It smells like heaven, just taking it out of the box. I lit my candles, ran a bath put a face mask on and relaxed. It was a wonderful treat and although it’s only counts as a wee bit of self care I needed it. I haven’t done this in ages but as soon as I got the idea into my head I wanted to relax immediately.

There is something very calming about lighting candles, perhaps it’s because you know when you do that you are about to relax, sit down and enjoy something, so the simple lighting of the candle is, almost, a meditative step.

Candles don’t have to be expensive and they don’t even have to have a fragrance if you are sensitive.

Every time we have guests I fill the house with piller candles to soften the mood.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
