Hello Everyone!

Last Friday, Ben & I found our Christmas tree! This is a tradition we look forward to every year & this year is our 4th Christmas together. A live tree in the home is just magical. The scent alone feels like Christmas, much less the fact that we add lights & ornaments to it to make it sparkle & shine with cheer. But before we get to the decorations, it’s on to finding the perfect tree.

Finding The Perfect Tree

Finding The Perfect Tree

The things we look for in a perfect tree:

The right height – make sure you measure first!

A good fullness – not too skinny

An even & symmetrical shape

Soft pines – some are definitely softer than others…make sure you touch them.

Just the right amount of quirk. Maybe it has one extra long branch on the side, or the point at the top is crooked…those little things make it YOUR tree.

For Ben & I, we always go with a Frasier Fir. They are just the best in our opinion. (& we are in love with this Frasier Fir candle!)

Finding The Perfect Tree

Once we find the perfect tree, it’s time to take it home.

Now for the fun part…dressing it up!

But you’ll have to wait for that…Until then! xx

Hello Everyone!

Day 2 of Blogmas is here, & it’s filled with all the holiday fragrances I love this time year. I’ve been stocking up on Lush bath products & yummy candles in preparation for this joyful season. I know that a great fragrance has a way of totally calming me down in the midst of Christmas shopping & Nutcracker chaos, & Christmas candles are my absolute favorites! See which ones I’ve gathered this year & others I’m planning on adding to my collection.

I do the most damage at Lush this time of year, hands down. I love hot baths with great bath bombs, oils, or bubbles (or all of the above…) with a space heater going in the bathroom & a glass of red wine in hand. One product that I can’t go without is Christingle. This body conditioner leaves my skin feeling so smooth, but it’s really the scent that has me smitten.  The cooling mint is just perfection. I try so hard to ration this product so I can make it last year round…but I typically fail because it’s just so good!

Other seasonal Lush products I have purchased recently include the Golden Wonder bath bomb, the Christmas Sweater bath bomb, & the Tree D bath oil melt. I can’t wait to use them! (Probably all this next week…)

Seeing as though I will probably use all of the up quite soon, these are on my next list: the Christmas Eve bubble bar,  the Shoot For The Stars bath bomb, & the Thunder Snow bath bomb. I’ll keep you updated via my Instagram Stories.

Now for my Christmas candle collection!

I’m always drawn to the pine/Christmas tree scent in candles! I like to stock up on this fragrance from different companies. My favorites have to be Thymes Frasier Fir, Fresh Balsam, & Illume Balsam & Cedar. These candles burn constantly in my household so having backups is a must.

Bath & Body Works candles are some of my favorites as well! My go-tos are Sweater Weather, Leaves, Winter, & Marshmallow Fireside.

What are your favorite home fragrances this time of year? Do we share any of the same must haves?

Hope you’re having a great day & are enjoying Blogmas thus far! This is just the beginning!…
