For the Homebodies

G & I are known to be candle hoarders. Anytime that I am home for a couple of hours, I would have one burning in our bedroom or in the living area (where I am currently writing this post) There is just something calming, soothing & indulgent with having scented candles around, and, depending on the scent, is reminiscent of either a tropical beach house (coconut scents) to cuddly sweater weather (vanilla & wood based scents) I’d been wanting to try my hand at making my own for a while and decided to make an afternoon of it, using mismatched vintage teacups I picked up at the flea market. Not only do they look adorable, but they’d also make an ideal gift since after the candle’s been used up (with some soaking in some boiling soapy water), the recipient would have a cute set of vintage teacups. Aside from that, I’ve also started making them into cool apothecary jars which I am going to sell soon- for other homebodies just like me 🙂 Watch this space!

Being a huge fan of fragrances (wouldn’t any lady?), it’s not a surprise that I think perfumes also make great gifts for Valentines day- or any other occasion. May it be for a cute first date, a sweet birthday gift for friends, gratuity gift for Mom, Christmas, or a romantic gesture for your wife *hint hint*, perfumes are wonderful- that is if you chose the right one. I’ve always been one of those girls who likes the idea of having a signature scent, but the smell of these current crushes are beautifully intoxicating that I don’t know which I like best!
I usually change up my scent regularly. Whether it’s taking it from day to night, a shift in seasons or even for a special occasion, having a unique scent is a great way to remember certain times in your life.

What is your current/all time favourite perfumes?

With Valentines day around the corner, here are some of the ‘lux’ goods that I’m currently crushing on. *Hint Hint* I’m absolutely loving the hat after seeing it on none other than style guru, Sienna Miller! (watch video below) She is also in American Sniper which I watched just the other day & found her scenes absolutely delightful!
