My Daily Routine with Homesick Candles

**This is a sponsored post, but my reviews are my own.**

Long-time no see, right? I’m still adjusting to post-grad life, so bear with me with the irregular blog schedule. But I’m so excited to partner with Homesick candles to talk about their newest collection: the Daily Collection!

I’ve actually purchased from Homesick before: I got my best friend a candle for Missouri because she’s from out-of-state and then I got one for my parents when they moved into their new house!

Daily Collection Candles

These candles come in 5 different scents, perfect for your everyday activities. I stick to pretty much the same routine each and every day, so adding these candles to my daily mix was so easy.

Sunrise Coffee

Typically, I don’t have time in the morning to make a cup of coffee and chill before starting the day. I’m busy getting ready and trying to keep my apartment in pretty good shape so I don’t have much to do when I get home from work. I’m also making my lunch and making a quick cold brew to get out the door on time.

One of my favorite weekend activities in sleeping in (well until like 9 AM) and making a cup of coffee. I love just enjoying the natural light and easy morning feel. This “Sunrise Coffee” candle is the perfect compliment to my slow and easy weekend mornings. Smells just like you’re in Starbucks!

Notes: Black Espresso, Lemon Peel, Whipped Creme, Steamed Milk, Nutty Sweet Cappuccino, Vanilla Extract, Cane Sugar

Morning Refresh

Monday through Friday I’m spending my morning getting ready for the day. Between a shower, doing my makeup, and fixing my hair, any burst of energy is much appreciated before I get my coffee.

I love this “Morning Refresh” candle because it’s subtly sweet with a kick of grapefruit to boost my motivation. I love burning it while I’m doing my makeup because it’s the perfect energizer during my morning routine.

Notes: Aldehydes, Grapefruit, Lemon, Zesty Grapefruit, Red Currant, Jasmine, Grapefruit Flower

Afternoon Adventure

When I get home from work, I start my afternoon routine which is pretty much tidying up, a little bit of cleaning, and then starting dinner. I try to get as much done as possible so then I don’t have so much to do on the weekends, especially since I’m out and about most weekends.

Lighting my “Afternoon Adventure” candle is the perfect way to get in the mood to get things done. It’s not an overwhelming scent, but it makes my little apartment feel even cozier. After working all day, it’s nice to come back and get my chores done, but still, I feel like I’m at home.

Notes: Mountain Air, Heliotrope, Winter Wreath, Golden Caramel, Smoked Cedar, Cashmere Vanilla, Guaiacwood, Warm Sandalwood, Firewood

Evening Unwind

Living on my own means I have to make dinner most nights (even though Postmates is soooo tempting.) My favorite ritual is turning on Netflix or Amazon Video and just watching for an hour or so while I eat dinner.

This “Evening Unwind” candle is the perfect blend of sweet and calm scents. I even love to put it in my bathroom while I’m doing my “self-care” routine on Sunday nights. Whatever your evening plans may be, this candle is the perfect compliment.

Notes: Valencia Orange, Green Tea Leaf, Melon, Blue Lavender, Lemon Extract, Moss, Neroli, Sugared Musk

Nighttime Slumber

At the end of the day, I stick to a strict nighttime routine. Every single night, I have to put down my phone an hour before bed, make a cup of chamomile tea, and read for at least 30 minutes. My night routine is SACRED! This is one of the only times I won’t sacrifice my schedule for other plans. I have to have my 8 hours to be a functioning person the next day.

Let me tell you, Homesick’s “Nighttime Slumber” candle is my favorite one from the collection. It’s just the perfect scent to get all cozy in my bed with a good book.

Notes: Coconut, Cream, Vanilla, Tonka Bean

Upgrade Your Daily Routine with Homesick

If you follow a strict routine (like me!) or you just want a little extra boost in the morning, Homesick’s Daily Collection is perfect for you. I love using all five in my routine, but you don’t have to have all of them to take advantage of the cozy candles.

Need to be a morning bird? Get the “Sunrise Coffee” candle! Trouble relaxing in the evening? Grad the “Evening Unwind” one!
