Fragrance, HomeMaison Jardin

M-Jardin-Metallo-Sake-Lemon-350x350Even though the days are warming up, it can still be cool at night. And lately on weekend nights, for me, there’s almost nothing better than cozying up with a throw, lighting a candle and catching up on magazines. I’m a big fan of Voluspa‘s Candles, and was so excited when they reached out about their newest collection, Maison Jardin.

The collection is composed of 4 fragrances:

  • Sake Lemon Flower
  • Linden & Dark Moss
  • Yuzu Rose Stonecrop
  • Amaranth & Jasmine

Since I gravitate toward florals and citrus scents, I happily tried to the Sake Lemon Flower Maison Metallo Candle. This is a lovely tart scent, but the sake note tempers the citrus, preventing it from being overly sweet.

Their containers are so lovely, as well. This one has gorgeous vintage-inspired florals, and their double wick configuration always leaves the candle burning evenly. (Tip: Make sure it always burns to the edges to prevent tunneling and for continuous even burns.)

With the change in seasons, it’s always a great time to refresh your lingerie drawer – throw out the old, and bring in some new.  We love Felina here at TDO, and this particular Christelle bra and boyshort set is particularly lovely! This style is super feminine and sexy, while still offering full coverage. The bra and undies both have sweet bows, with a little silvery sparkle edging. It’s slightly sheer, yet still slightly opaque – and would still look pretty even if it peeks out from a thin slouchy t-shirt (like this one) that we’re all throwing on weekends when the weather warms up.

HomeCharming Baskets

Spring is here (or almost here for some of you!), and that means it’s time for spring cleaning. This time of year, I always try to clean house and look for great storage or organizational solutions. The Land of the Nod has lots of chic options that work for not only kids, but also adults.

I really love the Charming Baskets, which come in stripes, dots and herringbone (pictured above). The pattern is modern, yet also fits into multiple spaces and types of homes. The patterns are great to mix and match, but also work well by themselves or likely with other baskets you already have in your home. Even better, these baskets are “handmade in Senegal, West Africa by Wolof artisans using environmentally friendly, sustainable materials;” it’s always great knowing that your purchase helps others and is environmentally-friendly. I’m currently using mine for random throws and overally, as a catchall for the living room.

AccessoriesSoxiety

soxietySometimes, there’s nothing better than a lazy weekend morning spent in bed…and to make it extra cozy, I love throwing on a pair of soft socks. Soxiety is a new online retailer that offers high-quality socks, designed and made in Northern Italy, with affordable pricing. From mercerized cotton lisle and luxurious cashmere, these are socks made to last.

Cashmere socks are a great go-to gift for the men in my life – one that people rarely splurge on, but always make people happy to receive. Even more so, I’m loving their new Women’s Collection for myself! I got to try the Gray Ribbed Cashmere Socks, and they are oh-so-lovely. These socks are knee-length, so I just pull them over leggings and push them down slightly at home, but also are a great length for under knee-high boots. This particular pair is a warm mix of merino wool and cashmere in a classic ribbed weave, with a touch of lyrca so their shape holds up. I’ve been grabbing them whenever I feel a bit chilly, especially in the early mornings before I get up to make coffee. They feel so luxurious and just plain good.

I can’t wait to try some other styles – and honestly, this might be my destination of choice for great gifts, especially for my sock-fiend friends.

Fragrance, HomeBring on Spring (Scents)!

Are you as over winter as I am? I’m craving sunshine, light breezes and spring-scented air… But since it’s still chilly, I’m turning to candles to bring in the scent of spring, while still providing coziness at home. Candles from Tocca are always a treat, and their scents let your senses escape to another place. These three are my current favorites! READ MORE
