Yankee Candle Tart Wax Melts

One of the loveliest things about winter is coming in from playing in the snow and defrosting in a cosy warm house with a hot drink, a blanket and a movie (or 5 episodes of Revenge :P) Candles are a wonderful way to achieve that cosy feeling, even more so if they can fill your home with a delicious fragrance.

I recently got sent this tart wax melt and burner from Yankee Direct and it's a fun, unique way to scent your home instead of burning candles or oil. You just put a tart into the burner and light an unscented tea light underneath, it's very similar to burning oil, except when the burner isn't hot the tart hardens and you can simply pop it out and in turn, swap scents as often as you'd like!

I received 6 delightful scents from the festive Christmas range. My favourite is Candy Cane Lane, it smells like vanilla and mint which I both love, nom! However I also really like Christmas Garland which has more of a masculine evergreen tree scent. And since there are so many different Tarts Wax Melts to choose from, it would make a lovely personalized gift this Christmas!

My Life in Switzerland

Jumping on top of mountains with the bestie, fashion shoots and hot chocolate by a snowy alpine lake, woodland walks and epic picnics with my man. Just a handful of amazing memories I've made in Switzerland so far. It is the most inspiring place I have ever lived. My love for photography has been renewed. My online photography portfolio is www.cargocollective.com/rachaeljanephotography if you want to have a bit of a gander :)

Monki Picks

If you haven't heard of Monki, um, where have you been?... just kidding :P But let me tell you, as pretty as websites can be, there is something really special about actually walking into a Monki shop. It is beautifully visually merchandised and the interior design is out of this world! It's so much more of an experience than say, H&M plus the clothes are unique, great quality and at a very affordable price. I adore visiting Monki, I always find something I like. This is a photo of the Carnaby Street location in London, aaaall the pretty!

Victorinox Chrono Classic 1/100

Victorinox Swiss Army are known for their rich 130 year history and iconic Swiss Army Knife. Paying tribute to their heritage and values, Victorinox introduce the new Chrono Classic 1/100. This stunning silver and black chronograph exudes confidence and strikes a defiantly masculine pose; it's sure to make a statement regardless of whether you're in the office or out for the weekend.

It is a truly unique piece as by simply pressing the crown twice, it transforms from a classic watch into a chronograph accurate to 1/100th of a second. (See it in action here) The intricate design of the discs clearly reference the shape and casing of the Swiss Army Officer's Knife and is a tribute to the origins and values of the Victorinox brand.

Teamed with black leather driving gloves, a quality jumper and a handful of Swiss roads, this beautiful little watch would make a great driving companion; there's even a tachymeter so you always know your speed. Just imagine it: handcrafted wooden steering wheel, fresh mountain air, switchbacks and the sweet grumble of a V8.

All in all the Chrono Classic 1/100 would make an excellent edition to any mans wardrobe; it's sophisticated, full of history, confident and looks fantastic. If exquisite looks and romantic notions of AC cobras on mountain passes still isn't enough; it's Swiss made so you can always be sure of incomparable quality and reliability.

I partnered with the brand to write this article but every word is mine.
