Friday Finds: Freshly Scented Candles + GIVEAWAY!

I know I can’t be the only girl who has a slight obsession with candles! I have them in every corner of my house and love to light them as soon as I get home. To me, candles are an extension of the design process because a pretty space is only half as good as a space that looks and smells amazing. A candle has become the perfect addition atop a stack of books in the living room or next my bedside lamp. It seems like they have become less about purely function and more of a decor item. That’s why I was so excited when I stumbled upon the perfect little candle shop a little while back!

All of their packaging options are beautiful whether you choose the full size glass filled candles or the smaller gold tin options. I was already beginning to picture them in my office amidst the other gold statement pieces the moment I saw them! To make it even better, each candle is filled with a soy wax so they are 100% natural and chemical free so you don’t have to worry about burning them for too long.

I find that candle smells can either overpower a room or perfectly compliment it, but it all depends on the setting. If you are looking for a candle for a heavy traffic area of your home, such as the living room or kitchen, Peonies Lychee is the perfect choice! The candle has a light, refreshing scent that is perfect for burning in the background throughout the day.

The soft soothing smell of mint is definitely a favorite of mine and this candle did not disappoint. The aroma filled the entire room and quieted my mind, kinda like being at a spa! I have to say, aromatherapy is no joke so if you are looking for a candle to add to your bathroom or even office, this is a great choice!

    Those candles are so cute! I love that they don’t have nasty chemicals in them too. I will have to get myself some 🙂
