Paddywax Eco Collection Wine Bottle Candles


I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Paddywax Wine Bottle candles since January. After perusing the New York Gift Fair on behalf of my beloved yoga studio I could not help but wait for the day I could finally pounce, purchase, and enjoy. Today was that day. Of course it happened after my […]

Anthropologie Decorator Concept

Decorator Shop 1

Anthropologie.  I could write sonnets on my love for you.  I spend hours pouring over your book section and once I hit the kitchen and beauty departments I’m transported to a land far, far away.  The home section reminds me of an apartment in the French countryside and I’m glad to have watched every single […]

Feasting Pretty: The Container Store’s Recipe File Folders

Container Store Recipe File Folders

I love magazines.  As much as I think of myself a tech girl there is nothing like holding a printed cooking magazine.   I receive 5-6 cooking magazines a month.  I often rip out recipes just so I can have the photo. Needless to say my recipe binder needs updating and organizing. I was perusing […]

Dressing Up My Home from Target

Dressing Up My Home

Elle Decor Bedrooms

I had never heard of “bed day” until I read Kimberly Wilson’s Tranquilista.  Kimberly is the creator of Tranquil Space, the place where I get my yoga on in DC.  I used to think a bed day meant a nap. That can happen, but it’s not the case.  A bed day is where you stay […]

Joya Orange Blossom and Pale Musk Diffuser

I'm late on the reed diffuser for my home scents.  I will always be a candle girl, but the diffuser is a great way to get the scent to last all day and night. Joya Orange Blossom and Pale Musk Diffuser is currently on my radar.  The modern look and feel of the decanter is […]

Ma Jolie Maison: K. Hall Design Candle in Egyptian Jasmine
