It’s officially candle season

Hi all, I’m super excited to introduce you to my latest project, Chai Lights Co. It’s my new candle shop on Etsy where I’ll be selling my homemade scented soy candles, all designed and inspired by original poetry.

My first summer-inspired candle is available to buy in the shop now (UK buyers only) – it’s called ‘Tropical Summer’ and smells just like a Pina Colada. So if you’re looking for something that will remind you of those sunny beach days amidst all this English rain, or perhaps a thoughtful gift for a friend, please do take a look!

I decided to start up Chai Lights Co because I love the warm cosy feeling of having a candle on when it’s dark and cold outside, and even better I love reading poetry by candlelight. So I thought, why not combine the two?

I also think candles make fantastic gifts, and there’s nothing that feels more authentic than buying a homemade gift with a unique message on it that you know your friend will love.

I’m currently preparing some gorgeous new Autumn candles for the shop, which will be coming later this week! So please do keep an eye out for those too and follow me on insta @chai_lights or facebook for a regular dose of cosy #bookstagram photos and insta poetry!

Happy October! Autumn photoshoots

Happy October! Only 30 days to go until Halloween! Ah I’m so excited, this is definitely my favourite time of year. I love the bittersweet nostalgia of autumn, how serene and calm and beautiful it is. The trees are all Gryffindor colours, the evenings are dusky and spooky, the cafes are selling pumpkin spice lattes. There’s nothing better than crawling into bed and getting cozy with a good book and a scented candle. What could be more hygge than that?

To celebrate this beautiful season, here are some favourites from a recent autumn-themed photoshoot I did with my gorgeous friend Emily.  You can see my full portfolio here.
