June 16, 2017

As a true beauty fanatic, I enjoy continually trying new products until I find the ones that work just right for me. My husband? Not so much.

The Non-Toxic Candle I’ve Been Loving For Fall

November 13, 2015

If there’s one thing that makes the home a little happier, it has to be a new candle.
