Alassis Winter Candles + Giveaway

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

I'm getting super excited about the Holidays this year and may even have some Christmas decor up before Thanksgiving. I love Holiday candles, but not the overly sweet smelling ones, I'm always drawn to ones that smell incredible and layered in scents. My new favorite candle of the Holiday season are the Alassis Winter Candle Collection. Alassis candles are an exclusive collection of fragrances inspired from ancient gardens, using only sophisticated ingredients.  

The Holiday candles smell amazing friends, when both non lit and lit. I placed the Noble Fir & Juniper candle on the bar cart, I love how each Alassis candle is layer in scents. The Noble Fir & Juniper is layered in three fragrances. Top: fir, citrus, juniper berry. Middle: menthol, resin, pine cone. Bottom: cedar wood, sandalwood and musk. 

Not only does the Noble Fir & Juniper candle smell amazing, its incredibly pretty while burning and they burn for up to 40 hours.  

The sound candle from the Alassis Winter collection is the Frosted Fig & Cranberries candle, the smell its heavenly friends! This candle is also layered in several amazing fragrances. Top: fruity, cranberries, red currants. Middle: floral, rose, violet and fig. Bottom: woody, musk, spicy pepper and vanilla. I burn this candle daily for hours when I get home in the evenings. 

Tis' the season friends! I just adore these candles! I'm getting a jump start on adding Christmas to my home, it might be early for some, but when your little one ask about Christmas it doesn't feel too early!

DIY Christmas Wreath Trio

Monday, November 16, 2015

A few weeks ago, I shared my latest project with The Home Depot, making a Christmas Wreath Trio for the Holidays. Join me this Saturday, November 21 at The Home Depot Daly City Store # 1092 at 10:00 am, sharing how to make a Christmas Wreath Trio. Today I'm sharing my customized version of the Christmas Wreath Trio. I'm thrilled with how my cheery Holiday wreath turned out. 

To make trio of Christmas Wreaths, I picked up three 20" wreaths, two spools of plaid & gold ribbon, along with pine and berry springs all from The Home Depot Holiday section. I love rolling up my sleeves and getting crafty for the holidays, for 'tools' to make my projects, I used scissors, card stock paper, and my trusty hot glue gun. 

I love fresh green simple wreaths, and wanted the plaid & gold ribbons to shine. To add some extra sparkle, I added cranberries and "snow'" frosted pine needles and some mini pine cones all from The Home Depot. 

Quick Tip: When making the ribbon rings for each wreath, "line" the ribbon with card stock paper, this will help keep the shape of the ribbon around the wreath. 

A few of my sweet blog friends joined me in making their own customized Christmas Wreath Trio. Please check out the other versions of the Christmas Wreath Trio below.

Quick Reminder: Join Me, Saturday morning 10:00 am at The Home Depot, Daly City Store # 1092. Please click here to register here for the FREE DIY Workshop.

So looking forward to seeing my Bay Friends this Saturday and making some pretty wreaths!
