My Favorite Things: Candles

I have found a candle to push my prior favorite candle down to number 2!  So I am not saying goodbye to my Tokyo Milk Le Petit candles forever.  But it will have to move over and give some space to my current fav.... Illume Boulangerie.

I came across these candles on a random trip to Anthropologie and fell in love.  Bought three small sized candles on the spot and will definitely go back for the larger size once I finish burning them.

My favorite scent so far is Vanilla & Fig.  The scent within these candles is so concentrated.  Nothing like those huge candles from you know where that you have to stand right next to in order to smell them (or burn two or three at a time!!)

Shopping List: Recent Purchases

Spring, I hope, is on the way.  I know that this is not a good reason for shopping, but since most of my stuff is in storage, I thought I would do some Spring shopping.  Now the items below are not really "Spring" items, but I thought I would get some skincare items to try to revive my skin for the coming season.

House Build: Lighting

I am so deep into choosing items for our new build.... Oh yeah, we are building a HOUSE!

It is an exciting step to take, but also an extremely stressful one.  Especially when you know exactly what you want, or better said, exactly what you DON'T want.  Pinterest is awesome for inspiration, but so many of the pictures have lost their original sourcing.  So it is very difficult to figure out how to get your hands on the items pictured. has been a great tool for me during this whole process.  Being able to ask questions to the designers and builders is AWESOME to say the least. 

Well, since this news is a bit of a bombshell, I decided this post would be a simple one.  Here are some of my favorite lighting fixtures from Pottery Barn.  I love the style of these fixtures, I just wish that Pottery Barn held some of the items in store.  Hopefully the quality is up to par with the style.
