Is it almost Easter already?

Valentine’s Day has passed and Easter is right around the corner. Everywhere you look, pastel colors and Easter bunnies surround you. The family will be gathering to decorate eggs and enjoy the occasion together, so it’s time to get the home ready! What better way to do this then with your favorite scent?

Candles are the perfect way to get everyone in that warm, springtime mood. Salt City’s Pink Lemonade will add a bright, pink touch to the living room. Archipelago Monogram candles come in a variety of fragrances and are perfect as gifts. The light pastel colors are ideal for this time of year, and with the monogrammed letter on both the candle and the box, it is a great decorative piece!

My personal favorite at this time of year is Illume’s Pineapple Cilantro. The scent is extremely fruity and tropical and the beautiful green color makes my home that much brighter. Whatever fragrance you choose to have in your home, candles will create a happy environment and cause every guest who enters to ask what smells so amazing!

So this post, let’s go a little off the topic of candles: What is your family’s favorite Easter pastime? My personal favorite is when we all gather to decorate the eggs. All the nieces and nephews are there, and in the end very few eggs look professional quality. In fact, most of them are a complete mess. But then, that’s what makes it memorable.

Happy Birthday to You!

There is nothing worse then forgetting a close friend or family member’s birthday, except maybe having your birthday forgotten. One or the other is bound to happen to you eventually. With busy work schedules, kids, school, and a million other to-dos, sometimes we forget those little important things.

Because I have forgotten a few birthdays over time, I have input reminders in my phone. About a week prior to their birthday, I get a little alarm buzz and a message reminding me that it’s coming up. This gives me just enough time to pick up something special.

But what happens when you don’t quite know what to get someone? You remembered, check, you acknowledged, check, but you still want to get them a nice gift to show you care. One of the things I fall back on in those moments is Luxe Linen by Aquiesse. This is their best seller, and the fragrance is a nice, clean mixture. When you really aren’t sure what scent a person likes, clean fragrances are always a great way to go.

Another great idea, when you absolutely can’t decide what they might like, is to go with a gift certificate. It can be used for anything on our site, and can be emailed directly to the person you are getting it for. So, if you tend to do things last minute, you can buy it and they can receive it on the same day.

Whatever it is you choose to do, keep an eye on the calendar and don’t forget to make someone feel special!
