Fresh Candles

Royal Gardens Tea for One

Good Wednesday Morning Everyone,

I am back in the office and trying to get into the swing of things. This weekend we went out for dinner and while we were waiting for a table we decided to go next door to the bookstore. 

I picked up a Good Housekeeping magazine and came across the beautiful Highgrove Tea Set for One pictured above. Isn't it gorgeous? Oh I wanted it so bad so when I see things in a magazine and I know I don't want to buy it, I take a photo of the article with my phone and look it up later. 

So when I looked up this set I realized that after shipping it would be $100! That's disappointing but maybe next time.

I did go candle shopping. Bath and Body Works was having a sale on their 3-wick candles. Their candles are the best. I did pick up the new fresh orange scent.

My husband loves and could not put it down. He keeps smelling it. It burns very nicely and has notes of grated orange zest and citrus. 

The second candle that I picked up is my all-time favorite perfect spring. This has notes of fresh grass and apple blossom. It may be a little strong for some people but I love it. 

I forgot to get my other favorite fresh cut lilacs so I am hoping to pick that up soon. Please let me know what your favorite spring candles are. I would love to know!

Enjoy your day!
