Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

The Comfort of Winter Candles to Welcome You Home

There is something quite comforting about having candles within the home on a cold damp winter day. No matter what, there is always the comfort of winter candles to welcome you home.

While advent is long gone and most people attribute candles to a religious holiday. I always think of candles as a winter home comfort décor. That flicker of light that welcomes you and gives you the safety and security of being at home.

Before electricity was invented, the only source of lights for the home was a candle. As soon as the sun went down, someone would go throughout the home lighting the candles to provide a little bit of light to cook foods or to read.

In ancient time, people would put candles in the window to ward off evil spirit, it was also a sign that weary travellers were welcome to board for the night. While during the war of roses and even in modern wartime, the army would light bacon to tell people who were trapped that there a place of safety to hide in.

Candles have much historical symbolic meaning and while many of these meaning is now lost; they haven’t lost their comfort in welcoming you home.

Lighting a winter candles is a ritual for when you stepped through the door on a cold damp night. The knowledge that the outside world is no longer a problem, the only thing that is important is being within the safe confine of the home.

Lighting a winter candles is when you want your body and soul to relax, letting all the stress unwinds and dissolve. This can be by taking a bath or meditating in a quiet corner.

While most people would choose fairy lights over candles now, that not to say winter candles hasn’t lost their popularity. There is something new and old with having candles in the home. It might be something that has been passed down by previous generations, its something that will never fade and wouldn’t be forgotten over time. Despite technology/lighting advances, people still will use the basic winter candles to light their way.

When life brings you down, work is being rubbished and the train are a nightmare. Just put a little through inside your mind and tell yourself that there is always the comfort of winter candles to welcome you home.

    Lovely idea Anna, but I’d be scared the candles would burn down and cause a fire while I was out. Any comment? How do you avoid that happening? Last day to link-up with this week’s Thankful Thursday!

    I’m talking about how you light a candle as soon as you get home. I would never advise anyone to leave candles burning when out.

    I love candles, too. When I had cats, I had to stop using them as they would jump onto the tables and knock things down. But now, I’m able to start putting out candles again.

    I love having candles lit whenever I am home! I also like seasonal scents and change them as the seasons change.
