Hello fellow Four Carats readers! I'm Rachel and I'm excited to be your guest blogger this week. I grew up with these girls and love the concept of this blog. Although our lives took us in different directions, we managed to stay in touch.
My recent obsession has been trying to find the perfect candle. With a huge variety of candles available, it definitely makes it a challenge to stumble across the perfect one. I know it will take some time, but I think I've managed to pick up some great contenders so far.
Now, Anthropologie has a pretty large selection of candles but you would never know this because their candles are scattered throughout the store. This makes it more difficult to find THE one, but it also makes finding something you love even more special. I was surprised when I found the refreshing citrus scent of Capri Blue's Volcano candle and I loved it so much that I couldn't resist picking it up in the mercury and etched glass jars. I also bought Capri Blue's Peeled Naval Orange candle, reminiscent of the taste of Orange Dreamsicles or the famous Orange Bang drink! Mmm... Ahh the nostalgia of childhood. These candles burn well and it doesn't take long for the scent to fill the house.
My other amazing candle buy is from Roger's Gardens. Its one of those shops where you can spend a couple of hours wandering through only to wake up the next day to do it again and somehow manage to find things you didn't initially find. I'm so happy I came across Lollia's Milk Blossom candle during one of my Roger's Gardens escapades. I initially was drawn to the delicately stenciled glass and I knew I had to buy it when I smelled the calming scent of luscious creams and florals. I'm definitely a happy camper with my recent buys but I would love to hear about your candle recommendations- please share!
Happy 4th everyone!
