Everybody and their mothers are candle obsessed these days,I know I am.I've been on the hunt for some festive scents recently and have stumbled upon two candles that are just divine.I like nothing more on a cold Autumn evening than to don my Pj's,sit down with a hot chocolate and to watch my candles flickering,letting off the most wonderful aromas.

First up is this Tilly Parker candle which I came across in Homesense (if you're a candle lover you need to check out Homesense's selection,one word...EPIC)It actually retails for £30 which I would never in a million years pay for a candle but I managed to snap it up for a mere £7.99.It burns amazingly too,I've used half and it has burnt evenly taking all the wax with it.It has notes of Magnolia,Jasmine and Opulent Woods,if you like masculine scents you will love this,and also the packaging is just drool worthy.

Reading isn't for everyone,I will admit,I open a novel,my eyes get heavy and i'm immediately bored however when it comes to cookbooks my eyes light up and I instantly become inspired.The one chef who always inspires me and keeps me in the kitchen is Nigel Slater,his food is homely,comforting and bloody scrumptious.

I have just finished reading "The Kitchen Diaries 2" in preparation for hopefully receiving his new cookbook for Christmas(A Year Of Good Eating: The Kitchen Diaries 3).I love the way this book is laid out,he goes through every month of the year using food which is in season for that time and comes up with the most delicious dishes along with a story or explanation as to why he is cooking it,and why he's loves that particular dish.I love Nigel as a writer in general and his TV programmes always have me hooked as does his quirky personality.

I have tried numerous recipes out of this book, all of which are stunning and so tasty,if you are a lover of good food and simple cooking I can't recommend this book enough,lets hope the new one is just as good,i'm holding high hopes for it.

Have you read and good cookbooks lately? I'd love to hear your recommendations.

Much Love
