What is it about rainy days that make me so tired? I think I will light some candles and take a nice, relaxing bath. I love candles. And always love when I find a new one. Here are a few you may or may not have heard of.
- Pieces – Pieces is a fantastic shop in Atlanta that I was finally able to visit on my recent trip. Their signature candles comes in 4 scents. I opted for the Cassis and Bergamot one. It smells just like the Diptyque Baies. Best part is the price… only $32.
- Maison Louis Marie – While strolling Newbury Street a few weeks back I stopped in my tracks when I saw that Steven Alan had opened a Boston Store. I literally wanted to buy everything. I restrained myself and only splurged on a Maison’s No. 4 Bois De Balincourt candle. A soy blend with essential oils named after the family home in Balincourt. The notes include cedarwood, sandalwood, vetiver and cinnamom. Delicious!
- Follain – I am a huge fan of Follain and was excited to receive an email in my inbox this week that they have launched their own original blend candle. The best part, every aspect of our candle – from vegetable wax, to cotton wick, and eco-friendly packaging – is safe for us, and the environment. Truth be told, I haven’t made it to the shop yet but its at the top of my list for weekend errands as I think it will make a wonderful hostess gift.
I hope you are able to take some time for you this evening. And remember, sweet readers… shine bright always!
