It’s nearly autumn, at least all of the autumn ranges are being released (and Yankee Candle had a 30% off offer), so it’s time for my annual Yankee Candle order for a couple of the Halloween scents. I do sometimes buy things in between, normally the wax melts or tea lights, but I always buy a Witches’ Brew and normally something from the Halloween accessories range. I also got a Fruit Salad large jar candle, it’s the only size available in it, which is apparently always available in the US but only a special release in the UK so if you’re in the UK then get it quickly as these ones often disappear without any warning.
I’ve only had them for a day but I have burned them all to see how they smell when they’re lit, though I don’t tend to find there’s that much difference in scent cool to warm when it comes to Yankee candles in the actual jars, some of the wax melts change but not the actual candles that I’ve had.

I did a post on Friday about the empties from last month and there are a few of those products that should probably be in a monthly favourites post too as I used them a lot but I’ve chosen eight different products I’ve been loving this month. I think most of these are a case of finding something I’ve had for a while and loving it but there are a couple of new things I only found this month. It seems a bit odd to include food but the Walkers Sunbites in general are so good. I really like it when companies do a good sweet chilli flavour for crisps things and these have the crunch and a bit of spice without being too hot for me which is always good as I don’t do chilli all that well sometimes.
I feel like in a monthly favourites I have to at least mention Reigns and Hustle Cat as I have really liked both of these games, Reigns in particular is one you pick up and play and lose time in whereas Hustle Cat is more one to sit down and know you’ll play for a while. This month I haven’t really been watching or listening to much that’s new for me to say that I’ve found something different. I have been really liking the heritage series, or whatever they’re calling it, that the BBC are doing where they either remake old series I none offs or they do a prequel or sequel type thing for them. It’s a nice way to revisit older series and give a new twist on them. Robot Wars finished and that was a great series, I hope they bring it back for a second (maybe they have already announced it and I missed it) but that next time it’s longer. I’d love to see some of the robots from earlier series appear, seeing some of them back was nice but I’d love to see the return of ones like Chaos 2, Panic Attack, Pussycat and Razor. They’d have to be updated against the newer robots but seeing some of the old teams back would be nice even if they’re new robots.
