What to do with an empty candle jar

You know how to make a seat from your old magazines, but there’s also that other niggly problem: what to do when a candle burns right to the end. A candle worth having in your home is often one that comes in a little jar that’s as nice to look at as the candle is to smell. Diptyque candles are one brand that you’ll find scattered throughout many a fashionable home; so here’s one little solution to putting those jars to continued use.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
