Glasshouse candles make everything better

It’s been a week of tea and sympathy, only getting out of bed and putting on a face to head to Sassybella’s 10th birthday party on Wednesday evening. What a frickin amazing party. Seriously. I’ll do a proper post on it next week once I get some pics and I can string a sentence together. I want to show you the Bite lip crayon I rocked – it seemed to constantly want to get on my teeth, but it was worth it.

The other things cheering me up as I haul my ass out of this flu-funk are 1 – chemist jelly beans and 2 – Glasshouse candles. Firstly, chemist jelly beans are the shit. You know the ones I mean – Glucojel, blue and yellow packaging, at the checkout of pretty much every chemist in Australia. When I’m sick these are all I want, and no other brand of jelly beans will do. And Lucozade, original flavour only.

Glasshouse candles always make me happy, but especially so when I’m feeling poorly. I love the jar, the beautiful form of the lid, the heavy duty wicks, and the insane fragrance they throw. A friend gifted me two new candles this week and I have been burning non-stop, alternating scents. I can’t decide which I love more – Monte Carlo (fig & guava) or Sassafras (blackberry & tea rose). Have you tried Glasshouse candles? Do you have a favourite? My all time fav is probably Tahaa (vanilla and caramel) or the now discontinued Cuba (pineapple, tangerine and cherry). I’m hanging for the limited edition Coney Island (burnt sugar and fig) that is due out Sept 2.

    hahaha I always buy those jelly beans, in fact I’ve been buying them from the chemist since I can remember! It seems to be one of the only constants in my life.

    Jelly beans are awesome when I’m sick but so is vegemite toast and tea and watching trashy trash trash on cable.

    Glad you feel better and those candles must smell amazing!

      Lucky I got sick during the olympics! Obsessed – have been on the couch the whole time, eating jelly beans. I remember my Mum buying them for me when I was sick as a kid; no other jelly bean is quite as good.

    Oh my! Burnt sugar and fig sounds amazing!!! Do you buy them online?

    I saw a Lolly pink colored GH candle in a mag, it was limited Ed. also but can’t remember the name.
    Tea and baking always cheers me up! Even if I don’t eat the baked goods! X

      I have a little store near me on Danks St that sells Glasshouse. I always like to go in and sniff them before I buy.
      I love baking too, but the problem is I always eat what I bake!!
