Hello my lovelies! I hope you are at peace today and enjoying yourselves. I bring to you today these 3 most delightful candles from Aroma Candle Shop based out of Los Angeles. These beauties are handmade soy candles and come in a variety of flavour/scents. My three choices were Bergamot/Tarragon, Cannabis Flower, & Amber Noir. I’m excited to share my thoughts and photo’s with you below!

So first I must start with the most sexiest candle I have ever come across. My GOODNESS. The Amber Noir is something I feel we should all experience. The sweet, musky, richness of the scent of this candle is honestly so divine my words will never be able to describe how mmmm YUMMY this smells. It smells like.. a very posh, expensive condo. The smell of success and wealth. The smell of the most sexy human on the planet. Β Amber Noir includes sweet and sultry fusion of vanilla, rich amber, musk and sandalwood. I am a true lover of everything amber and am more than pleased with this first candle! This is the perfect candle for in the bedroom πŸ˜‰

The next candle which we are all probably a bit curious about is the Cannabis Flower candle. As this does not smell like the full cannabis flower as you would think, this candle has beautiful tones of fern and earth in it. It is quite floral and delicate smelling which is very pleasant to the nose. This would be a great scent for the living room as it is calming and subtle.

The last divine candle that I have here is the Bergamot & Tarragon candle. Smelling refreshing and rejuvenating with hints of tarragon leaves, grapefruit and lime – complimented by bergamot aroma with notes of oakmoss and bamboo this is perfect for the bathroom and kitchen areas. Having the refreshing scent that is does, this candle smells uplifting and peaceful.

This Summer has been an interesting one. Probably one of the most heartbreaking, sad, unproductive summers i’ve had. It had its amazing moments that I wouldn’t give up for this world, but there are some people that I really wish were still with us, who we unfortunatelyΒ lost this summer. It’s been a crazy Summer of unfortunate events, remember to remind those who you love, say what’s on your mind and stay true to yourself. This life is short and precious. Happy that this Summer is over, and excited to take on the Fall, lets get into these favorites.

I will start left to right just to cause less confusion πŸ˜› So there is my tattoo choker & scrunchie <–obviously a 90’s kid. (I’m currently working on opening an online store. You’ll be seeing more of my products here and there before my store launches..) Tattoo chokers being one of those things you’ll be able to get in my store ^.^ The scrunchie came in a pack of 8 just from any old drugstore.

I got the black obsidian buddha head necklace at the PNE in Vancouver. “Obsidian rock forms from molten lava that cooled very quickly and had no time to form into glass. It is said to be a type of volcanic glass… and is found in a number of places worldwide. Black Obsidian is a very protective stone. It is said to form a shield against negativity and to absorb negative energies from the environment. Because of this it should be cleansed regularly in running water.”

The three bracelet’s I have this month are all going to be available in my store when I launch it this Fall (hoping this fall, fingers crossed!) :D! The white buddha head & turquoise buddha head are both made of turquoise stone. The black bracelet with a gold buddha head is made of natural obsidian stone, the same as my necklace.IMG_1698

I bought both pairs of these plugs (for my ears) fromΒ http://bodyjewelrysource.com/Β I only ever buy plugs when they’re onsale.. almost like everything else I shop for πŸ˜› They always have new sales and deals on so go and check out their selection if you’re interested ^.^

I know it was a little early to bust out the gingerbread tea.. But seriously this tea is so effing tasty, and comforting. I usually heat almond milk, with two of these tea bags in a pot so I can have a couple cups full. The cup I featured in my mini Vancouver haul, I bought it at an Art Market at a farm in Cultus Lake, it was quite cute if i do say so mahself πŸ˜‰ The jar of substance on the right of the stump is this lovely body butter my girlfriend made for me ❀ It smells like lemon marringΒ pie(<–don’t know spelling)Β , it’s AMAZING and all natural && very moisturizing ^.^ Love you Maria if you’re reading this!

A new face, a new friend!

In January I stepped out of my comfort zone and went ahead and asked two girls I had lurked by on facebook if they would be interested in being apart of my portfolio, and that I am looking to meet new people to collaborate with! They both happen to be in college, one hairdressing and the other digital arts! Ooh how lovely it is to meet new creative minded people. I am excited to feature both Amber & Kailey again in my portfolio this year! You can see Kailey’s photo’s I shot on my photography page ❀

Here are a few of the photo’s I took of Amber ❀ She’s such a sweetheart!

Snack Time

 

Last night I cozied in before the party… happened. Before all the madness I sat down with a nice glass of $8.95 Grey Fox Merlot, and a tasty little snack that involved Kavli Cripsy Thin Crackers these are suuper thin so I had to double up to even be able to spread the cream cheese. On top of the Philadelphia Roasted Garlic cream cheese I broke up some smoked salmon I bought at the grocery store for $2.95 (could make about 8 crackers!) then I sliced a couple of mini dill pickles for the side and pulled out a couple of chunks of garlic from the pickle jar to put on top of the smoked salmon. Very tasty!

Recently I’ve been on the hunt for cheap candles in glass container/wear and have found it rather difficult coming across candles that aren’t $10+. Unless of course you are at Dollorama which nothing is less than $3 but sometimes not what you’re looking for. Sometime last week I made my way into town, alllll the way to the Canadian Wholesale and have found these adorable $1.25 vanilla bean “starlytes”. They smell e-x-a-c-t-l-y like vanilla cake with Betty Crocker’s vanilla icing…. You know the one, and they come in these adorable “mason jar” looking containers. LOVE!

Over the past year or so, i’ve been experimenting with different drug store face wash’. I finally feel like I have hit the jack pot with this one! ST.Ives Naturally Clear, Green Tea Scrub, smells absolutely divine. It has a very mild scrub to it, and leaves your face feeling amazingly fresh and soft. It contains salicylic acid which is an acne treatment, which really does make a noticeable difference after washing your face. I’m pretty sure you can pick this up at almost any drug store & I will definitely be picking this one up again.

I got this argan oil for a christmas present, probably about 3 years ago. Which is absolutely ridiculous that I didn’t really start using it until last year. I did come across this product at Wall-Mart for only $10, and I believe that any human that applies heat or dye of any sort should have a bottle of argan oil. It is so unbelievably repairing for dry/fried, dead ends & damage of any kind to the hair. It really leaves your hair feeling healthy, with enough nurture for silky goodness! I brought this to Mexico with me last November and this helped save my hair from sun damage & all the salt water swimming can be harsh on your hair. I’ve been using it ever since. Also this bottle will last you what will seem for ever, I only use a drop ever time I get out of the shower. I do find if i use too much (over 2 drops) it can leave me hair feeling a bit oily, hence the argan “oil”.

If you come across this white tea & blueberry at the store, pick it up! It is sooo yummy! The only ingredients are filtered water, cane sugar, white tea, natural blueberry flavour and citcric acid. They also have just a regular ice tea which is also delicious. Random, simple and very worth trying πŸ˜‰
