Illuminate Your Winter

illuminate your life!Winter is a very dark season, and sometimes, it can feel cold and empty. Candles help to warm up your home during these dark months, and bring a little light into your life. It’s a bonus if they smell great!

I was in Anthropologie this weekend, and the minute I walked through the entry, a warm, soothing smell hit my nostrils. It was the Illume Pumpkin Pie candle pictured above ($18). The scent wasn’t overly pumpkiny, just warm, inviting, and autumnal. I can see this burning in the living room as my family and I enjoy cocktails and appetizers before our Thanksgiving feast.

Here are more delicious-smelling and visually captivating candles that were scattered throughout the shop:

    I saw the pumpkin pie candle in Anthropologie this weekend, too! I couldn’t resist…I bought it AND the roasting chestnuts one. And I’m going back for ski cap candle!

    I want to get this…but I’m torn between this and the cedar/spruce version.
