Jet Set: Traveling with Candles

Summer always has me dreaming up my next escape and I so look forward to our next family vacation. In the meantime, I was reading the beautiful new July issue of InStyle Magazine with cover girl Kate Hudson, and found myself pulling out a few helpful travel tips from the Jet Set pages. I wanted to share one trick in particular I came across, courtesy of Jeralyn Gerba (co-founder and editorial director of Fathom: the fabulous travel website), which I have actually used for many years: When traveling, pack a few of your favorite mini candle votives. Not only will they keep your luggage smelling great, you can enjoy them throughout your travels and make any hotel feel like home without taking up a ton of valuable space! Brilliant, right?

My favorite scents for summer trips are Cashmere and Lavendar, both (and more!) available as mini votives for $16, here.

And as for that stunning image… in honor of the World Cup being played in beautiful Brazil, I couldn’t resist sharing this beautiful photograph by Charles Allmon (National Geographic) of a 1950′s scene along Arpoador Beach in Rio de Janiero.

Father’s Day Gift Idea: Our New Eucalyptus Candle

hr-eucalyptus-single

Wondering what to get Dad for Father’s Day? Well (we might be biased), we think our new Eucalyptus candle is just the thing! This beautiful, unisex scent had the men in our lives turning their heads when they caught a whiff of the cool eucalyptus warmed with pacific woods & fresh air.

Breathe easier with the fortifying scent of eucalyptus. Native to Australia, the plant was first introduced to the Americas during the California Gold Rush of 1849. Infused with the essence of pacific woods, this candle captures the feel of a fresh walk in the great outdoors. Tranquil.

Now available at a range of fine retailers, including:
Oliver’s Twist
Candles Off Main
Orange & Pear

…and many more…

So forget about the usual BBQ sauces and neckties; get Dad a little something he can pamper himself with. Shop today and cross that Father’s Day gift off your list!
