Man loves company - even if it is only that of a small burning candle.

Hello everyone and welcome!!

Autumn in Greece can get weird.  Hot sun and those high temperatures we all enjoy 
(...) during day and when night comes, 
you feel like you landed to Alaska. If you decide to go out and stay all day, 
you have to bring along a suitcase with clothes from each season. :P 

But i don't care. 
My candles are ready to keep me company for an other autumn / winter!! 
Who doesn't love candles? What's your favourite colour / 
smell when it comes to candles? ^-^

October month without Halloween things to share? 
First of all, one favourite horror movie.
The Haunting (1963)

A British psychological horror film by American director Robert Wise 
and adapted by Nelson Gidding from the novel The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. 
It stars Julie Harris, Claire Bloom, Richard Johnson, and Russ Tamblyn. 
The film, about a team of paranormal investigators at a haunted house in which 
they spend several nights, is often cited as one of the most frightening films ever made. 
If you are looking for a good old horror film, go and watch it. Brilliant!! 

Second, I'm reading again those creepy "bedtime" stories, 
filled with gorgeous illustrations. I found them a long time ago for only 3.50 € 
each in hard-cover edition and they are simply adorable!

  1. I looove candles :D Expecially the Ikea ones, those were the first I could actually smell in the room while burning :D I love the berry and the melon and the rose one the most (ok that's almost all of the availables :D)
    I also like to burn oils in the aromalamp or those indian scented sticks (forgot how are they called:D) but only at home, they are a bit strong and I don't know whether my roommate wouldn't be against it :D
    Btw, you have always so beautiful eye makeup :D So much envy, I can never figure out how to make smokey eyes look good on me :D But you are so pretty with it :)
    And also I love your manicure, great idea! :D

    1. That is the tricky part. To buy candles which can smell in the room. I will buy some from Ikea! ^-^ Yes yes to both. In the first picture, right next to my mug is this dark brown thing where i put a candle down and the oils up and the room smells so nice! Not to mention those aromatic incense sticks i adore!! ( You reminded me i need to buy some because i run out of them :P) Oh and that is the ultimate compliment coming from a person who knows make up so well! Thank you so much! I always had that smoky eye and eyeliner so i kinda "learnt it well". :$

  2. Θέλω κι εγώ (μαύρο) κερί πυραμίδα! Τα αρωματικά κεριά με ζαλίζουν. Προτιμώ να καίω θυμιάματα και βότανα (η αγιαστούρα μου πάει πολύ). Καιρός να σταματήσεις τη δίαιτα, έχεις μείνει μισή.

    1. Χαχα πάντα!!! <3 Καλά κάνεις. Άν εχεις βασιλικό αποξηραμένο, προτείνω να το ρίξεις πάνω στο θυμιαμα και να λιβανίσεις το σπίτι σου (αν δεν το κανεις ήδη). Ο μπαμπάς μου πριν μερικά χρόνια ασχολήθηκε με τα κεριά και τα μαύρα ήταν παραγγελια μ :Ρ Δεν βλεπω συχνά στην αγορά μαύρα κεριά - τα περισσοτερα καφετίζουν - και αυτά που μου έμειναν πλέον δεν τα καίω :Ρ Βάζω ρεσό απο πάνω - σκουρο καφε - και καίω αυτα!
