So buy candles.
Until a few weeks ago, candles were an untouchable luxury for me. I could never justify purchasing them. Tempted by the Spitalfield scents, I said “no, I’m trying not to buy more stuff since I have to move soon.” As soon as I said this, I realised it didn’t have to be true. I didn’t have to carry something else to Boston. I could use it before I go.
Simple Fix: Light a Candle.
So unless you live in accommodation that is cautious about fires, use the candle you purchased. At night, when I turn the overhead lights off and the fairy lights on, I also light my Fireside candle. Let the scent bloom, let the flame flicker, cup your cold hands over top of it. Enjoying candles is living in the moment.
