Christmas Memories with Yankee Candle at Debenhams

Bundle of festive Yankee Candle giftsThe time for tiptoeing around the issue has long gone, Christmas is (pretty much) here!  Sneak peeks of decorated Christmas trees popping up on Instagram have signalled the 'okay' for discussing all things festive.  Prepare yourselves, because as I've mentioned in my updated about section, A Glass Of Ice is a lifestyle blog 'focussing on stylish and seasonal living'.  I'm ready to resume my role of Mrs Claus!  Speaking of which, Debenhams have lent a helping hand by sending over a gorgeous bundle of festive Yankee Candle treats.  So, to kickstart the season and with the scent of 'Berry Trifle' wafting around my desk, I've been thinking about some of my favourite Christmas memories...

This season really is so cosy and one I associate with flickering fires, burning candles and homebaked treats.  One of my favourite things at this time of year is hearing about other people's traditions; one special discovery through blogging (and one that I'll totally be doing from now on) is changing into a new pair of festive pyjamas on Christmas Eve.  So cute!  Personally, some of my favourite memories include walking through illuminated trails with friends and family, slathering chocolate frosting onto yule logs to the sound of White Christmas and attending countless festive events.  Large gatherings with mince pies and mulled wine, towns 'turning on the lights' and of course Christmas markets are always on the agenda.  Come to think of it, in just over a week I'll be back in Cologne for a few days with family enjoying the buzzing atmosphere of the Christmas markets!  Excited would be an understatement.

With love,

  31. Seasonal candles are the best, and Yankee Candles definitely do some amazing ones! My favourite scent is Sugared Apple, it is so sweet and comforting. You're lucky to go and see the Christmas markets in Cologne, I can't wait to see the beautiful photos you'll take there :D
    One of my favourite Christmas traditions is just having an amazing dinner with family, and getting a huge chocolate box at the end to share between us all.

  34. This post has made me even more excited for Christmas, girlie! I've completely forgotten about Yankee Candle because I haven't shopped in a mall in a really long time. Most of the stores I shop at are store front, so I've missed walking by and being persuaded to enter by the most amazing scents! I'll have to make it a point of interest to stop by because those scents look like they'd smell amazing! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!

  43. I absolutely adore strolling around shopping centers that are fully decked out for the holidays. Especially the town center near where I live because all the trees are strung with lights, and there are holiday events that take place every weekend. I agree that it's a wonderful time of year. I've already got Christmas music playing on the radio

  52. What a warm and cheery post. I also love scented candles and lights this time of year. My favorite tradition is to prepare Norwegian dishes for both Christmas Eve and Christmas. Last year, my husband and I ended up smoldering ours, because we had a new (never before used) oven. Please wish us good luck this year! And thanks for the lovely recounting of your Christmas memories. XO
