Valentine’s Day Bliss

I hope everyone had a wonderful loving Valentine’s Day, whether you celebrate on the day or on the weekend, and whether it’s with friends, a loved one or your family! It’s so fun for Wayne and I to get dressed up and go to a nice dinner. This was our fifth Valentine’s Day together and boy, did he really keep me on my toes.

Early in the day, he texted me saying he couldn’t believe this was our fifth V-day together, and I really had to think about it, because I couldn’t believe it either.  I can remember our first V-day, and how anxious I was to be going to Valentine’s Day dinner with this handsome man as his “girlfriend!” I had butterflies!!

This year, I had a work event and was able to head home early to work from home.  As soon as I walked in the door, on our dining room table, was a HUGE bouquet of white and pink roses! I was so shocked!!!  In the card it explained how this is such a special holiday today because it’s our fifth Valentine’s celebrated together, so he thought it was only fitting to give me five dozen roses – I was blown away and could not be more in love with these gorgeous flowers!  So, this called for a blog shoot – Over the next few days, I’ll be posting the outfit I wore, and others considered wearing for my Valentine’s Day date night.

Fall(en) for Voluspa

blog-v1blog-v2blog-v3blog-v4blog-v6blog-v7

Fall is officially among us and it’s the perfect time to start lighting candles; it just makes a room feel cozy and warm when the weather starts to get a little chilly.

One thing, besides flowers, that I have an obsession with is candles: small tealights, three wick, floral, seasonal, even citronella for the outdoor terrace, I can’t ever get enough!!  I have a huge under-the-bed storage bin full of different candles, different scents, different brands and one of my absolute favorites that I purchase every year from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (Nsale), is the Voluspa Metallo Tin Candle sets.  There’s different collections, Maison Jardin & Maison Blanc, that are available during the Nsale — I have both and all six scents are just to die for — very lux!!

They come in beautifully decorated tins, with either florals, or vintage gold, luxury designs which feature three different scents per collection.  I have both the large, 11 oz. sizes and small, 4 oz. sizes.  These make great gifts, either as the whole kit or just one of the candles!  The hardest part is deciding which to light first since they all smell fabulous.  Another amazing aspect of purchasing these in the kit, is the price!

In Anthro or Bloomies, these 2-wick candles individually run between $16-$18, during the Nsale, they run $15. 90 for the small collection (3 mini candles) and $29.50 for the large 2-wick collection (3 large candles)!! Seriously one of my favorite purchases during the Nsale!

**SALE** One of my favorite scents, Maison Blanc “Pink Citron”, is currently on sale at Bloomies for only $9.60 — almost half off for the 2-wick candle – check it out here!!

Do any of my readers love this brand and their collections as much as me?!
