Hanson’s New Album – Anthem

Okay, I admit it – I’m aย huge nerd when it comes to Hanson. I remember being eleven years old and vowing never to like another band as much as I liked them then and little did I know how well I’d stick to that in the years to come. The guys have such positive energy […]

Iris eau de toilette Spray by Crabtree and Evelyn

About a year ago I discovered at Hallmark this amazing scent. Every time I would go in I would always spritz a little on my wrist, not ready to make the commitment of purchasing a bottle for myself. So after admiring it all this time, this was the only thing I asked my husband to […]

Playing A Little Catch Up

Okay, it’s time to check in! I was on a roll for a little while, even attempting writing everyday but got way behind. Over the last few weeks it’s seems as though I’ve gotten busier with my candles, which is great! After Valentine’s Day, I had to prep for a little “smelling party’ at my […]

Happy Valentines Day!

The hubby and I have been married close to almost two years now, but we’ve been together much longer than that! We were fifteen the first time he was my Valentine, and somehow we ended up being Valentine’s ever since. This time of year always makes me remember the precious beginnings of our relationship. {A […]

Getting Healthy: Nutribullet Style

A few weeks ago, late at night right before bedtime, one of those attention grabbing infomercials came on. Sprawled out in front of the host (and creator of the gadget) was an array of veggies and fruit. He said what was in front of him wasn’t a “blender” but an “extractor” of nutrition, calling it […]

Anthropologie & Victoria’s Secret | My Sunday Out

With good reason, it’s been a while since this girl has gone shopping or enjoyed a Sunday out. Today, I decided to discard my pajamas, actually curl my hair, and wear my red lipstick and go to the local town center. It was time to get out and enjoy myself, even with it flurrying all […]

February Book of the Month

Twelve days ago (Yes, I counted), I said that I was going to attempt to read a book a month to get myself back on track with reading and dust off the books that have gone untouched on my bookshelf for a few years. I wanted to finish the book I was currently reading by […]

Oh, Monday…

Last night proved to be aย night showing the drawbacks of living in an apartment. Having loud and inconsiderate neighbors wake you up at one in the morning wasn’t what I had planned, nor not being able to fall back asleep until much later only to get one hour of sleep. I’ve had two coffee’s and […]

Getting to Know You: Favorite Fiction

I follow @pureEtsy on Twitter, having an Etsy account myself for my candles, and occasionally they’ll tweet fun questions such as: “What is your favorite fictional story?ย  (novel, movie, fairytale, etc)” When I was little, my answer may have been something like “Cinderella”. Who wouldn’t want to have a Fairy Godmother, go to a ball, […]

A Little Catching Up To Do

Man, do I feel like I have a smidge of catching up to do! I meant to blog throughout the entire Holiday Season (Christmas Season, if you prefer), even making my blog more festive by changing the theme. But as you can see, not one post was made in December. And I’m a little sad […]
