Fave Candles

"When it is working, you completely go into another place, you're tapping into things that are totally universal, completely beyond your ego and your own self. That's what it is all about." ~ Keith Haring 

 Hey sweetie pies, for those of you who know me personally, you all know I LOVE me some candles!! I ALWAYS have one burning at my house. Not only for the effects of room fragrance alone, but also for aromatherapy, reminiscing, and relaxing. In today's post I want to share some of my all time favorite candles and fragrances for the house. My ladies can probably attest to the fact that there is nothing better than having a good smelling candle to just fill the room. 

Now I know some may ask why not just get air freshener or a diffuser but I personally believe that a candle will fill a room quicker and the fragrance will linger after you blow it out - especially if it is a good quality candle. Most candles recommend that you burn them for 2 hours max at a time and then blow them out. Not only because this is safe but also to extend the life of your candle. 

1. My all time favorite candle is the Be Peaceful Aromatherapy Candle. It is an aromatherapy candle that is lavender and eucalyptus scented and it smells AMAZING! It is available at Target in 2 different sizes and a diffuser if candles aren't really your thing. I always keep one of these candles in my bedroom and I usually light it at night time while I am getting ready for bed. 

2. I love the Nature's Wick Candle in Pumpkin Nutmeg! I like to use this candle in my downstairs bathroom or kitchen. It smells amazing and it works in smaller places in my opinion. Whenever I tried burning this candle in bigger spaces such as the living room or my bedroom, I couldn't smell it. I like using it in smaller places such as the downstairs bathroom or kitchen where you can actually smell it. I think the other spaces are too big for the fragrance to fill if that makes sense so just an FYI.

3. Ever since I first smelled it at Bath and Body Works, I knew that this Bergamot Waters Candle was going to be bae. I heard Nitraab mention in one of her hauls and I had to try it for myself. It is hard to describe the smell but it is amazing! I encourage everyone to go to Bath and Body Works and just smell it for yourself. :)

4. Another fave of mine is the Paris Lavender Macaroon Candle. It is really the best of all because it is lavender (my fave scent), macaroon (because it is awesome), and it is PINK (my fave color). It has a soft sweet smell but it is not overwhelming. 

5. Lastly I love SOHO Brights Peony Petals Candle. Unfortunately you can't buy it online but it is available at Target in multiple sizes. I love this candle because of the smell of course but also the decorative containers that it comes in. They are so cute to me! This collection has other scents so feel free to check them out. 

What is your favorite candle? Do you have any suggestions on candles that I should try out? Leave me your thoughts below!

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.

To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
