Discovering Complexity of Candle Aromas and How They're Beyond A Simple Scent

Did you know that your preferred fragrance can give a glimpse into your personality? It's true. Fragrance can give little hints about you. Aroma can be very simple or complex, and it can also uncover your personal fragrance style.  Candle fragrances are usually blends of multiple layers of aroma that intermingle with one another to give one total experience. Often, we pop open a lid, take a whiff and make a decision about whether or not we like a candle aroma. Unfortunately, this isn't quite fair to our senses. But...

Home Coffee Bar and Recipe Ideas

Fall is the perfect time to start pulling out those rich and creamy coffee recipes while adding a few updates to our home coffee bar. After calculating my spending at Starbucks during the summer months, let's just say that my coffee bill was gaining on my water bill for a household of 11. So  upgrading my home coffee bar seemed like a better alternative. My coffee bar was in need of a serious refresh after a bit of neglect during the summer months.

Because Every Cake Has a Story To Tell

I don't think the statement that every cake has a story to tell could be more true. Hey there friends! It's launch day, and I'm so excited to share with you a whole new collection of faux cakes that are quite different from those you've seen in the shop before. Each cake design has its own unique story that I'll be sharing with you this autumn. This year's collection is called Soiree d' Automne. That is, An Evening in Fall in French. Why an evening in fall? Well, that's a story I can tell you has more than one answer. In short, I wanted to highlight all of the beauty of autumn in color, yet the absence of color is...
