My Latest Obsession | Chesapeake Bay Mind + Body Collection #ad

Would you believe that before I had the chance to experience the Chesapeake Bay Mind & Body candles and diffuser, I only purchased candles that smelled like food, coffee, or seasonal scents like burning leaves? Don't get me wrong, I still love filling my home with scents like Chesapeake Bay Vanilla Biscotti and of course Snow by the Shore, but now that I have had the chance to enjoy these incredibly pleasing scents, I'm obsessed.

My Latest Obsession | Chesapeake Bay Mind + Body Collection #adI admit in the past I would have walked right by these scents. Clearly I didn't know any better. And I definitely didn't know that I needed these calming, relaxing, delicate, harmonious candles in my life. I'm so obsessed with them that I'll even burn them during the day when I'm home. I have never, ever burned candles during the day before, it was always just a night thing for me. For some (silly) reason, in my mind, candles only got burned at night. I'm a weirdo, I know. 

I think part of the reason I would have never picked up candles like these before is because I'm not familiar with the scents. It's easy to buy a coffee scented candle, or an apple pie scented candle because you know what that smells like! The scents from the Mind & Body collection, I was completely unfamiliar with.

Christmas in the Kitchen

Welcome to my Christmas in the kitchen tour! 

Christmas in the Kitchen

At this time last year we had only been in our new home five short months and I'm embarrassed to say I didn't pay much attention to the kitchen when it came to decorating for Christmas. Last year my focus was on the living room which you can see here and here and I was so happy with how everything turned out. The kitchen, not so much. In the past I know I've rushed decorating and eventually regretted my choices - especially when I've gone with something trendy. When you're dealing with a new space, I think it's best to take your time and get a feel for it, mull your options over, and only bring in decor that you're really happy with -  and not just because you've seen it on HGTV and everybody has it. Last year with the focus on the living room, the kitchen ended up looking unfinished and very "decorator beginner".

12 Coffee Table Books for the Decorator

Coffee table books for the decoratorSo after I compiled this list, I realized that there is a definite theme going on with the style of decorating. I suppose since these are the styles that I'm drawn to, it makes sense. I haven't actually looked at or read Home by Ellen DeGeneres so this book might not go with the rest of them. However, I know I like Ellen so I had to include her. :)
