Advent 2016: Day 17!


I just realised today that were over half way through the month and were less than two weeks away from the beginning of 2017. How has this year gone by so fast? I think it took months for me to remember not to write 2015 at the beginning of this month so it’ll still be like its 2016 for a while yet for me.

The Ciate today was a nail topper, a glitter called All That Jazz, which is really pretty and sparkly but these are so messy to use. The Yankee Candle tea light today is actually hard to tell which one it is, I’ve got a cold now and I can’t seem to tell if this is Christmas Cookie or Winter Glow but I think it’s Christmas Cookie. It’s such a subtle scent and I think the others in the calendar may have affected the scent of it when it’s not burnt, or maybe it’s just my nose playing up and adding other scents to it.
