A WOMAN has spent £50 on a candle that smells of wild figs, pomegranate and immense stupidity.
Nikki Hollis purchased the large lump of fragranced wax as the latest part of her drive for ‘wellness’ and other nonsense.
Hollis, surprisingly an adult of 42, said: “It is expensive, but it’s hygge, or self-care, or something like that.
“I know that I’m basically watching my money burn, but I’m doing it with a vague aroma of woodland, so that makes it worth it.”
In the last month Hollis has also spent £40 on a soothing algae foot mask, £100 on a jade face roller and £160 on a hairbrush that will supposedly cleanse her aura.
She is currently planning to step up her self-care regime in the coming weeks to counter the stress of her mounting debts and possible bankruptcy.
Hollis added: “I might spend several hundred pounds on a course of sensory deprivation tank treatments, even though I could do it for free by sitting in the bath in the dark.”
