If your children are anything like my daughter, they are caught up in the hype of unboxing videos on Youtube. My four-year old’s personal favorite is Ryan’s Toy Review. This child will sit for hours in her room watching Youtube videos via the Roku. She enjoys seeing other children open toys so I wanted to bring that excitement and experience directly to her.

Winding Down With Essential Oils

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I use aromatherapy whenever we are home. I choose to use essential oils as a way to purify and cleanse our indoor air. We spend a lot of time at home, so I want our air to smell fresh and clean, without the use of fake scented products.

Using essential oils is incredibly easy as there are many ways to feel the natural effects!

Handcrafted Candles for Every Occasion

 

Handcrafted Candles for Every Occasion_Pink Disco and MinimalistBeauty Brite Disclosure 

One of the simplest ways to update your décor is with candles. They can transform a room with their warm glow, aromatic throw, or elegant packaging. For me, candles let me express my style and help create the ideal mood, or feel, of every room in my home. This time of year, I’m creating a myriad of sensory experiences with the handcrafted candles of Brooklyn Candle Studio.

This independent studio, located in Brooklyn, New York, was founded by in 2013 by designer Tamara Mayne. Her obsession with aromatherapy and candlemaking extends beyond creating beautifully designed candles. It’s also about being eco-friendly. Each handcrafted candle from Brooklyn Candle Studio is made from 100% soy wax with lead-free cotton wicks primed with vegetable-based wax. In addition, each every candle is vegan and free of preservatives, petroleum, and animal testing.

Handcrafted Candles – Minimalist

While I like to burn candles all year long, my favorite time of year to do so is in the fall. There’s nothing like taking a hot bath or cozying up under a blanket while warm, toasty scents fill the air. You can imagine my excitement when Brooklyn Candle Studio offered me to send me some of their seasonal offerings.

I received Apple Cider and Fern + Moss from their Minimalist Collection. Packaged in simple glass jars, with brushed gold lids, their Minimalist Candles look perfect in every room of the house, from the kitchen to the bedroom.

 

Handcrafted Candles_Minimalist in Apple Cider and Fern+Moss

 

Apple Cider is the epitome of fall. The natural cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, orange, and cedarwood essential oils blend perfectly with the top notes of crisp apple. There’s nothing artificial about this candle either. It’s has a nice, rich throw, without being too sweet or overpowering.

The best way I can describe Fern + Moss is that of a yummy, outdoorsman. In a good way of course. It’s blend of natural sage, lavender, orange, spruce, and pine are heavenly. I can’t get enough of this candle, even though when I first smelled it, I wasn’t sure it was for me. I thought it would turn my home into a den of cheap cologne. Quite the contrary. It has the perfect, woodsy, musky throw.

Now if both handcrafted candles could magically bring me a hot, man carrying warm mugs full of whiskey infused cider…ah, a girl can dream.

 

Brooklyn Candle Studio – Pink Disco

 

Handcrafted Candles_Pink Disco in Prosecco

In addition to the Minimalist Collection, I was also drawn to the Brooklyn Candle Studio Limited Edition Pink Disco Collection. This unique holiday collection was inspired by cocktail party season, and features three handcrafted candles in Prosecco, Fireplace, and Cypress. Each candle is hand-poured into a frosted, blush colored jar and then stamped with a gold foil accent.

As a fan of sweet libations, I decided to order Prosecco. Nothing says holiday, cocktail party like a flute of Prosecco. Not only is the candle gorgeous to look at, but it also has a lovely throw. With notes of red berries, wild roses and white musk, Prosecco is the ideal candle for starting your evening, or cocktail party, off on the right note.

Candles for Every Occasion

What I like most about these handcrafted candles is the divine scent they leave long after I’ve extinguished their warm glow. It’s always a treat to walk into the room the next day and still smell their throw. I look forward to burning these Brooklyn Candle Studio gems all season long, as well as picking up some more for myself and for gifts.

 What are your favorite fall candle scents?  How do like to incorporate candles into your home decor?

I find myself being pretty picky with the beauty products I use. I recently had to buy a few items for my son since they were going to teach them basic skills (oral health, combing hair, using deodorant, lotion, etc). After gathering all the supplies, I realized I already had a natural deodorant I could have added to my son’s supplies, instead, I bought him at the store. I am going through the products I use with my son as well.

Are you ready to switch? It’s time to choose natural with a little Beauty TLC: Tender Loving Coconut!

Fabulous Fashion for Your Kids
Beauty Brite Disclosure

As the mom of four kids, I’m constantly looking to add something new to their wardrobe as someone is always growing out of the sizes they are in. Meaning we are always on the lookout for great prices and great style. I love to give my kids the freedom to have a lot of freedom on how they dress because being little they don’t always get to choose with big decisions but letting them pick out their own clothes is a fun way to let me express their personality.

Fabulous fashion for your kids!

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I use essential oils throughout my home religiously! With my daughter starting her first day of preschool soon, I am blasting ‘health shield’ and ‘eucalyptus’ to keep us breathing fresh air and germ-free. While our teachers try their best to keep classrooms sanitized, they can quite kill off every germ, so it always seems as though one (or all of us) fall sick within the first three weeks of school.

One Step Closer to Chemical Free Fragrance in the Home

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It seems that everywhere we look, popular brands are using fewer chemicals when it comes to the makeup of their products, especially when it comes to the fragrance products we use in our homes. This is a huge step compared to years ago when the chemical makeup of a product was irrelevant to the vast population. Majority of people were clueless as to how dangerous these chemicals could be for our bodies as well as the ecosystem. I have to admit I was one of those people. However, I am also a firm believer that if one knows better, they tend to do better. The problem for me is that I really enjoy some of the artificial fragrances you can find in today’s market. Below are a few products I have found that can help start the baby step process of having less chemical filled fragrance products in your home.

Powerful And Natural Cleaning
Beauty Brite Disclosure

When I was pregnant with my son, I realized the cleaning products I was using was not good for my health and didn’t want to put my baby to have to smell or even be around those harsh chemicals. I knew that whenever I cleaned, the fumes would make me dizzy and affect my asthma and breathing. It really hit me when I had cleaned the bathtub with a cleaning product with bleach and here I was giving my son a bath. The thought of the residue left from the chemicals, bleach, and even the smell of everything really bothered me and forced me to look at alternative cleaning solutions.

Are you looking for powerful and natural cleaning solutions that really work? Your cleaning products don’t need to contain nasty chemicals to be effective!
