Cargo // Last of the Summer Nights // Candles

It's no secret how much I love burning candles, is there a blogger who doesn't? Though when it comes to burning them outside you won't catch me carting out my stash of Yankee or Kringle candles in fear of breakages and fragrances. As a family, along with friends we spend a lot of time together in the garden before winter hits us.
For those of who may not have heard of Cargo they're a brilliant home decor store with many high street stores - mainly focussed London-Midlands way. Us south-westerners don't miss out with their vast range of furniture, bake wear, gifts and finishing touches available online with superb delivery. Cargo certainly have the fastest delivery I've experienced with home decor items, with the featured candles wrapped with so much care. If you're heading off to uni, needing a few last home comforts and furnishings to make the most of bland student houses Cargo still have their sale running.
Cargo kindly sent over four of their Lowboy Candle Jars that retail for £2.50, though now they're reduced to £1.25 - perfect time to share with you guys right? With a total of nine colours to choice from and one scented option they're the perfect size to create the relaxing ambiance after long days and BBQ's. The embossed glass and bright colours look gorgeous lit up at night, the garden has been transformed, reminding me of many summer evenings spent over on the IOW in Shanklin's magical Chine - slight exaggeration ;) My favourite out of the four has to be the yellow jar, being the only scented of the candles. For an outside candle you don't want anything to overpowering, Cargo get it spot on with a fresh, light zesty fragrance. How many hours can you expect? I'd say 60+, the wax burns slowly and equally, there's nothing worse than a wick that disappears leaving you with a pot of wax. When these candles eventually get used up I'll be cleaning them up and using them to store items, they'd be cute additions to dinners outside whether it be holding cutlery, nibbles (breadsticks or after dinner biscotti's) or popping tea lights into them.
I'll be hoping for a few more drier evenings to make the most of these candles but all is not lost, I'll still light the brightly coloured jars on the dreary winter days inside.
