September Candle of the Month

Yup, it's been a minute since I last said hello! Life is busy and wonderful and full and I will be able to share what myself and a dream team of people have been working on very soon! It involves a lot of travelling, and so while I've been back home the past couple weeks I've been gearing up for the very LONGGG Fall and Winter season here. Which means: Candle Season. 

I know it's very trendy to go Hygge these days, but there is something magical and amazing about lighting a candle on a cold afternoon. So I've been stocking up! I've grabbed a wide variety to try as I see ones that excite me, but this is by far my favourite:

I picked up this cutie at Little Brick locally but you can find them online directly from Salt Water Tea right here.

The Lavender scent is fresh and lovely, and the good vibes aren't just in watching it glow! There is a natural crystal in every candle to up the good vibes it gives off and to cherish once you are all done with the candle. I also love that is a local Alberta made product, supporting cool makers around us makes me even happier as I enjoy it this Fall.

I'm slightly sad Summer is over, but I couldn't be happier about candle season kicking off. Hope you are gearing up for a good candle season in your home as well!

Summer and candles don't always seem like a perfect combo, but I actually kind of think they are. I'll admit that I'm the first person looking for an excuse to light a candle, but honestly, I think Summer is my second favourite candle season (Winter is first, obviously!). But my reasoning isn't that I enjoy lighting candles in the Summer...

It's that I've noticed a good candle is extra fragrant in the Summer. Usually, without even being lit I can smell my favourite candles on a warm afternoon! So the fact that I get to enjoy my latest scent obsession twice really (unlit, and again when I light it up) is my reasoning for loving candles, even in the Summer. 

In other master bedroom news, I picked up a second fiddle leaf fig a month or so back at Home Depot. Did you know they are only $16.99 there???!!! It's basically been the only plant I cannot kill, so I though adding one to this little corner in the bedroom would be the perfect hit of color, texture and height.

I plopped it into a favourite woven Ikea basket/bag I had laying around, adding the perfect amount of drama while still feeling calming and simple like the rest of the room. 

The candle I'm currently burning and obsessing over it this Wild Herb and Patchouli candle from Makers of Wax Goods. I know patchouli isn't for everyone, but I honestly can't smell it. The aroma is more of a perfect cologne/musk while still smelling natural. 

This particular afternoon this week was dull and rainy and the perfect excuse to light up a candle and curl up with a good book. An afternoon like that is so lovely mixed in with a string of hot, sunny, pool side days.

Happy Weekend, Friend!
