Our latest blog post over at www.candlesbysprout.com
Hello! It has been mentioned once or twice that this blog is looking a little lonely- so here I am. Many people have asked over the past few months exactly how I got the idea for Sprout and why I am so in love with it… hold onto your seats.
… Birthed from a love of vintage crystal and all things lux·u·ri·ous, Sprout has grown into a candle empire. From the humble day of Miss Sprout and her expensive candle and crystal addiction, she came up with the idea to combine the two. Collecting all things vintage and recycled from places near and far, she created her first candle. 100% Soy. 100% good for herself, family and poodle… thus Sprout was born.
After falling in love, getting married and moving to Brisbane with her Husband who loves making sound waves- Sprout finally has a base, and a home.
Sprout is now found at markets, quirky boutiques and on-line, shipping to Mars if needed. We only create products that we would love to receive.
Thank you for your support, feedback and most of all, love. Wishing you and your family an amazing Christmas and a blessed New Year.

Ladies, lets try not to judge others until we have walked around with the blisters that other’s shoes have given us on the road they’ve chosen to walk.
Life’s a bit of bitch at times…. and we have all, at some point or another, bought really cheap tacky shoes that dont pinch until we walk out of the store and get them home.
Ahhhh, I’ll take a no. 3, a no. 5 and a no. 14… please. (I just heard Josh faint somewhere)
What’s your pick?
I just found a beautiful piece of wedding advice that was given to me in a letter to read the morning of my wedding by my lovely friend Jenna! Jenna and I have been friends since Uni and somehow have manage to move to the same city, 10 mins away from each other… this is my favourite part of the letter….
“Good luck today. Good luck for tomorrow. Add a touch of Britt into everything you do because remember, it’s still ok to be Britt Snow every once in a while. And if you’re having a not so good day, pull out sex and he city, throw on your pj’s and everything will be alright”
Aren’t pearls of wisdom from those who know us well just the best! Her advice is true and wise. I think about it now that Im married, it’s important to make sure that, although Im always growing, that im always the woman who Josh married. And even further, it’s important to put a Britt and Josh mark on everything we do in life. There always seems to be a lot of competition around… I want to focus inwards instead of whats going on in the lives around us. Things have a way of working themselves out as they should… and I fully believe that the best road in life, is the one we forge for ourselves! Happy Hump Day! x
I have always wanted to write my own vows, as confronting as that is, I like the idea that the words I say would be tailored to our personal relationship!
Here are my vows to Josh:
I couldn’t be happier. I am delighted to be marring you today and vowing to love you forever.“5 years ago, after you asked me to dinner and you split the bill, we became just friends and you became known as Spilt the Bill Josh. And today, as if someone has pressed fast forward on our lives, we stand here pledging our futures to each other.
- I want nothing more than to be a wonderful wife to you, to be loyal and someone you trust and confide in.
- I promise to always be there for you, to take care of you, to be your lover and best friend.
- I promise to match every chick flick with a guy movie, every superfood with a bad carb and every tear with laughter.
- When we create a family, I vow to be the best mum I can be.
- I promise to trust you, to appreciate you and to honour you at all costs.
If you promise to share this life with me, then I promise to make it as exciting and happy, spontaneous and passionate as it can be, taking ever breath I have to strive for your happiness. And you and I know better than anyone that there will be all sorts of valleys and roadblocks during that journey, but I promise to never quit, and to love you more and more in those moments.
I, Brittany, give you this ring as a promise and symbol of my heart and faithfulness, my love and commitment to you. When I am angry, I will seek to be kind, when we speak I will be truthful and each day of my life, I will be faithful to you.”
I keep these words around so I can read over them from time to time, although at times I fail, it’s my lifes mission to uphold these words! x
