city find: the coolest candles in austin

smells like teen spirit—or, you know, cuddles.

Is there even such a thing as too many candles?! Let's face it, you need them for everything: reading tarot cards when the lights go out in a thunderstorm, making your apartment smell good the morning after the party of the century, adding some extra coziness to a major relax sesh after a ridiculous week.

I get it, you probably already have your go-to scent for each of these situations, (thunderstorms, post-parties, chillaxin'), but every once in a while I'll walk by a new candle at a flea market that's completely irresistible--and right now is one of those times. That's because the soy candles from The Burlap Bag in Austin, Texas are totally awesome. With names like Crazy Cat Lady, Cuddles, and La-La Land, these handmade goodies are more than just burnable goodness, they're super fun.

So go scoop up your new fave at their West 30th Street gift shop in Austin or online right here. Because, trust me, Unicorn Puke is a scent you just can't live without.
