Did you see the cover reveal for Muse of Nightmares last week?! Strange the Dreamer was my favorite book of 2017 and I cannot wait to read its sequel! ⠀⠀ 💙 ⠀⠀ The Muse of Nightmares herself inspired this beautifully blue candle with savory fragrances of peachy nectar, spicy rosemary, and clean, fresh air! It’s a unique and gorgeous combination that makes such a pleading candle blend! ⠀⠀ 💙 ⠀⠀ #museofnightmares#muse#strangethedreamer#lainitaylor#totalbooknerd#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookishcandle#bookstagram#bookcandles

I always love working with subscription boxes and I’ve been fortunate enough to work with @owlcrate a couple times now! It’s always such a wonderful experience working with Korrina and the Owlcrate team, and I always love seeing everyone’s reactions to the candles!⠀⠀⠀ 🌳🍏 ⠀⠀⠀ Seen here, The Dreaming Tree was the exclusive scent included in December’s Seize the Day box, inspired by Emery Lord’s The Names They Gave Us. The colors even match the book cover! ⠀⠀⠀ 🌳🍏 ⠀⠀⠀ Were you able to grab this exclusive scent in Owlcrate subscription? What’s been your favorite candle you’ve received in a subscription box? ⠀⠀⠀ 🌳🍏 ⠀⠀⠀ #thedreamingtree#owlcrate#owlcratesociety#thenamestheygaveus#emerylord#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookishcandle#candlegram#bookstagram

It’s always so much fun coming up with new and exciting things for candles! The Foggy Knight candle has a “foggy” black swirl AND and faux “blood drip” for some neat and colorful special effects! ⠀⠀ 🖤 ⠀⠀ I’m always trying to brainstorm new and exciting things to constantly keep innovating and creating! What sorts of interesting special effects/luxury elements/creative containers would you like to see? I’d definitely love to experiment with some new concepts this year for even more creative candles!!⠀⠀ 🖤 ⠀⠀ #foggyknight#stalkingjacktheripper#huntingprincedracula#kerrimaniscalco#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookishcandle#bookstagram#yalit#bookaddict#totalbooknerd

Happy Saturday! I am ready for the weekend and so much candle-making!! I’m going to finish up some bulk/wholesale orders and then finish up all of the Rampion Crew candles! ⠀⠀⠀ 🌲 ⠀⠀⠀ I thiiiiink I’ll be able to do one more small stock of the Rampion Crew box! I’m gauging the final numbers to make sure I have enough people interested so if you are, make sure you add your name to the waiting list so you can be one of the first people notified when it’s on sale! ⠀⠀⠀ 🌲 ⠀⠀⠀ I’m about to head off to the shop and start making the candles and planning all the full-time candle ideas!

Whew, super late post, but what day! Today was my last day at my full-time office job and I can now officially say that I am a full-time shop owner and candle-maker!! ⠀⠀⠀ 🕯❤️ ⠀⠀⠀ It probably shouldn’t feel this different since I’ve been running Novelly Yours for over two years but it feels like it holds a different weight now that it’s my sole focus! I’m SO excited for all of the opportunities that this time will allow me and I can’t wait to continue growing the business, coming up with new ideas, and always continuing to improve in every way that I can!⠀⠀ 🕯❤️ ⠀⠀⠀ It took a bit of bravery to quit my job to take candles full-time, but I also know it was time and that I was ready to to take this exciting new step with my business! I had to channel my Gryffindor friends since I am the least Gryffindor out of all the houses 😂😬 ⠀⠀⠀ 🕯❤️ ⠀⠀⠀ #brave#gryffindorpride#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookstagram#bookishcandle#bookcandles#booknerd

The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favorite series and I always find myself missing the Rampion Crew... that’s probably why I have candles inspired by half of them and a whole box celebrating these amazing characters, right?! 😂 ⠀⠀ 💜 ⠀⠀ Thorne was originally part of a sampler set but the demand was so high that he got his own full-sized candle! I love this clean and masculine scent. ⠀⠀ 💜 ⠀⠀ If you missed the Rampion Crew box, I can’t make any promises but I MAY do a restock if I get enough people interested! Head over to the shop to add your name to the waiting list so I can see how many people would be interested in more boxes! Based on the items, I have a minimum I need to hit and haven’t gotten there yet so it’s still undecided whether I can add on any more but you know I’d like to! ⠀⠀ 💜 ⠀⠀ #thorne#carswellthorne#captaincarswellthorne#thelunarchronicles#lunarchronicles#marissameyer#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookishcandle

Happy Valentine’s Day! What better way to celebrate than by giving your books an extra hug today?! We all know they’re the real objects of affection today. ⠀⠀ 💘 ⠀⠀ Share your bookish passion with the February Candle of the Month, For the Love of Books! It’s truly one of my new favorite scents — fruity, floral, and soft! Top notes of pink wine blend with soft, rain-kissed florals on a base of book pages for a soft, romantic feel! ⠀⠀ 💘 ⠀⠀ Are you doing anything special for Valentine’s Day? My husband and I don’t celebrate so I’m just working tonight!⠀⠀ 💘 ⠀⠀ #valentinesday#happyvalentinesday#fortheloveofbooks#bookcandle#bookishcandle#novellyyours#candleofthemonth#candlegram#candles

The Renegades was one of my favorite books of 2017 and I can’t wait for its sequel! The ending left me hanging and I can’t wait to see what happens next! ⠀⠀ ❤️💙 ⠀⠀ The Renegades-inspired candle set takes a little inspiration from each of the key members from these two rival groups! Originally only sold in a set of two, you can now grab either one in the mix & match option if you want to pick a side to display your loyalty! ⠀⠀ ❤️💙 ⠀⠀ Are you a Renegade or Anarchist? ⠀ ❤️💙 ⠀⠀ #therenegades#jointherenegades#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookstagram#bookishcandle#marissameyer#totalbooknerd

Don’t you love characters who are passionate about books and reading? It really gives me an extra connection to them, sharing the same passion! ⠀⠀ 📚 ⠀⠀ I love Lazlo Strange’s adoration of books in Strange the Dreamer! It even played a part in the creation of this candle, drawing on Lazlo’s noted fragrances of sandalwood and musk and adding in a lovely base note of book pages! It really ties the candle together in concept and smell! ⠀⠀ 📚 ⠀⠀ Who’s your favorite literary bookworm? ⠀⠀ 📚 ⠀⠀ As a side note, the March/April reps have been selected and I notified them all this morning! Just waiting for confirmation from all three before I make the official announcement! Thank you to every single person who entered the search!! It’s always so hard to choose and I wish it was possible to pick everyone! You know I’d love to shower you all with candles if I could! 😘⠀⠀ 📚 ⠀⠀ #strangethedreamer#lazlostrange#lainitaylor#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookishcandle#bookstagram

Have you read the Stalking Jack the Ripper books? I absolutely love this series and Hunting Prince Dracula had some amazing scent inspirations for main characters Audrey Rose and Thomas! ⠀⠀ ☕️ ⠀⠀ Thomas was described as smelling like coffee, cologne, and his wool coat and the scents sounded amazing but actually smelling them is divine! It’s a must-try candle and one I highly recommend! ⠀⠀ ☕️ ⠀⠀ Hope everyone is having a good Saturday! We did some cleaning around the house this morning and now I’m headed off to the shop! ⠀⠀ ☕️ ⠀⠀ #stalkingjacktheripper#huntingprincedracula#kerrimaniscalco#thomascresswell#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookishcandle#bookcandles

It’s always so much fun to make the Plot Twist candles since each batch is a different color! I guess purple is a popular choice 😂 I just love the scents and the throw on this candle too! The fragrances are a little dark, mysterious, and pleasant all at the same time! ⠀⠀⠀ 💜 ⠀⠀⠀ I’m happy that it’s Friday and I’m also happy that one week from now will be my last day at my full-time job!! I put in my notice so I could take on Novelly Yours full-time and I am so incredibly thrilled! I’ll be able to spend more time on projects, get things done in advance, and speed up processing time even MORE! I want to say thank you to each and every person who has supported me and this little (well I guess it’s not little anymore!) business venture of mine! I’m so excited to be able to take things to the next level and it’s all thanks to my customers, followers, and supporters! You are always truly amazing! ⠀⠀⠀ 💜 ⠀⠀⠀ I started working on some ideas for next month’s box last night and also wanted to ask what you’d like to see! Are there any fandoms or themes that you must have?! ⠀⠀⠀ 💜 ⠀⠀⠀ #plottwist#plottwistcandle#novellyyours#bookstagram#bookcandle#totalbooknerd#bookishcandle#etsyshop#etsy#bookish

If you enjoy coffee scents, don’t miss Levi’s Pumpkin Mocha Breve! It’s full of rich coffee notes with warm pumpkin spices and deep notes of chocolate to add that mocha flavor! ⠀⠀⠀ ☕️ ⠀⠀⠀ This is still one of my favorite candles and especially launched into a customer favorite after this Scent was included in the Owlcrate box of April 2017 as Levi & Cath! ⠀⠀⠀ ☕️ ⠀⠀⠀ What’s your favorite type of coffee to drink? Black? PSL? Latte? Espresso? I love flavored coffees with just some half & half! ⠀⠀⠀ ☕️ ⠀⠀⠀ #levispumpkinmochabreve#novellyyours#fangirl#rainbowrowell#coffee#coffeecandle#coffeeaddict#bookstagram#bookcandle

One of my life goals is to make it to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal and drink a real Butterbeer, which seems like a pretty attainable goal, right?! It sounds like a literal dream come true and mayyyybe, just maybe, I can go this year. I’ve got a lot of things in mind for conferences and book events I want to attend too though, so we’ll see how the vacation aspect turns out! ⠀⠀ 🍻 ⠀⠀ Broomstick Bar was inspired by exactly this sentiment! I adore the Three Broomsticks and that would totally be one of my hangouts of choice if I could frequent Hogsmeade! ⠀⠀ 🍻 ⠀⠀ Have you ever been to HP World and had a butterbeer? ⠀⠀ 🍻 ⠀⠀ #broomstickbar#butterbeer#threebroomsticks#novellyyours#bookstagram#bookcandle#bookishcandle#potterhead

Good news, Manibus fans! I was able to get one last shipment of my oakmoss oil from my fragrance supplier so I’m able to make a few more batches of this candle in the original blend!! I’ll have a few left in all sizes and this should last me a little while. Due to the limited supply of this scent, I won’t be processing this in the Scent Obsession size. Sorry!! ⠀⠀⠀ 🍃 ⠀⠀⠀ I’ll keep Instagram and the website updated with supplies and there will be a note once I run out and we have to make the switch! As always, if you have any questions, please do let me know! ⠀⠀⠀ 🍃 ⠀⠀⠀ Do you own any of the Raven Cycle-inspired candles? Which one is your favorite?! ⠀⠀⠀ 🍃 ⠀⠀⠀ #manibus#theravencycle#theravenboys#maggiestiefvater#pynch#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookstagram#bookishcandle

I just found out last night that Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff are coming to @andersonsbookshop in March and I am SO EXCITED! As long as nothing crazy pops up, I will totally be there! Obsidio is probably my most anticipated release of 2018 and it’ll be so awesome to see the authors in person! ⠀⠀⠀ 🚀 ⠀⠀⠀ Are Amie and Jay headed to a city near you? ⠀⠀⠀ 🚀 ⠀⠀⠀ The Merciful candle was inspired by Illuminae with dashes of “blood” dripping down the sides of the candle! It’s one of my favorite candles to make because of this fun effect! ⠀⠀⠀ 🚀 ⠀⠀⠀ #illuminae#gemina#aminotmerciful#theilluminaefiles#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookstagram#totalbooknerd

Cath’s Lemon Tarts is such a yummy, bakery scent! It may be named after Cath’s tart dessert but this pastry-inspired smell is sweet and deliciously cakey, focusing on the pastry aspect that will make your mouth water! ⠀⠀⠀ 🍋 ⠀⠀⠀ I realized was I was going through all of my scents this week that I don’t have a lot of fruity-scented candles! Do you have any inspirations for more fruity type candles that you’d like to see? ⠀⠀⠀ 🍋 ⠀⠀⠀ #cathslemontarts#heartless#marissameyer#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookstagram#bookishcandle#lemon

World-Building is one of my favorite parts of my favorite fantasy novels! It’s so much fun to see how authors have built these worlds and how much the world’s own history plays a part in the book. ⠀⠀⠀ 🌎 ⠀⠀⠀ I’m almost finished with Iron Gold and I’m always so impressed with all of Pierce Brown’s world (or in this case... universe?) development! What are some of your favorite worlds/universes? ⠀⠀⠀ 🌎 ⠀⠀⠀ #worldbuilding#novellyyours#bookcandle#bookstagram#bookish#totalbooknerd#amwriting#writer
