New Goodies

November 5, 2014

I bought myself a few presents this past week that have been on my wish list for a while. I needed some gloves for New York, so I got these great bow gloves from KateSpade. I LOVE how feminine they are, but they will go with everything. I would also love to find a great leather pair of gloves, but I have yet to find the perfect pair. Any recommendations?



I have been eyeing Jo Malone candles for YEARS. Back when I used to work at Nordstrom I would always go over and sniff my way through the Jo Malone counter. They have the most uniquely scented candles, and I think that is what makes them so exquisite and luxurious. You don’t even have to light the candle for its aroma to fill the room. I have been wanting the Rose candle since FOREVER, so I finally decided to indulge. My husband Byron has been complimenting the smell ever since I brought it home. It’s very subtle and classy. Jo Malone candles also make a fabulous gift. The staff always do an amazing job of wrapping everything so beautifully, so it’s a real treat to receive as a special present.

    Aw I love the gloves as I love bows a lot 🙂
    Also I’ve never heard of the candles, but I was looking for one for my Mom as a present. I think one of them would be nice 🙂
    Great post as always!

    I also talked about both of your Yotube channels and a few other on my blog. I would be happy if you would have the time and check it out Rachel. Liz xx

    I love this scent and am thinking of getting this next time I visit the Jo Malone store. I love Jo Malone perfumes so much. I have quite a few and they layer up so well.

    I visit daily some web sites and blogs to read content, but this weblog presents quality based writing.

    A quality juicer that works well at lower speeds is the ideal type to look for.
    The majority of the vegetable recipes include carrots as one of the staple ingredients.
    When compared to a centrifugal juicer, you will see that the juices from this
    masticating juicer are much darker because of the way it extracts all parts of
    the vegetable instead of just the juice.

    obviously like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on several of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling
    issues and I to find it very bothersome
    to inform the truth however I will definitely come again again.
