Pretty In Pastels

Hello Tuesday! This week we are inspired by pastels to kick-off spring and Easter! With gloomy weather ahead that April showers bring, let's look on the brighter side of all pastel things. OK, that was very Dr. Seuss!

I fell in love with this image. It's glamorous, romantic and fun all at the same time. Helen Julia's "I Do" candle scented in rose bouquet has the same affect. ;)

Fortunately, I didn't bake these cupcakes! But they are SO GOOD to look at without the temptation of wanting one or two (let's be honest)! I'd prefer to admire from a distance! How appropriate are these cupcakes to match the image above. What a nice pastel combination!

Have a great "romantic" day (even if you have to imagine it... it works)!

Monday, Monday!

It's back to the drawing board! A new week to start fresh! Hope you had a great weekend, rain or shine!

We are just a week away from Easter (April 4th)! Pastels are in! This week we will represent all things pastel in home design, home fragrance and fashion! We've got work to do!

Just Because...

Good evening, fans and followers! I'm off to a later start than usual, I know. Blame it on the rain, blame it on the blues, blame it on the mood, blame it on the need-a-vacation-sooo-bad!

The weekend is almost here (TGIAF... Thank Goodness It's Almost Friday)! I believe it's time to plan a road trip, to clear my thoughts and get creative dressed in my casual best! I believe our Magnolia Bliss Soy Candle scented in southern magnolia would be a nice home accessory to add to the relaxing weekend! Mmmm... Relax, Relate, Release here I come!

Let The Sunshine In!

Spring is just days away and I'm ready to see the sunshine. But before we can see consistent sunshine we must first go through April showers to experience May flowers! Helen Julia's Pearl Drop soy candle scented in grapefruit citrus will surely help you brighten your day, rain or shine!

Here's our sunshine inspiration board to get you in the mood for spring/summer. Spring fever is in the air! Images courtesy of Helen Julia, Style Me Pretty, Country Living & The Dessy Group.

So Fresh And So Clean

Winter is almost over! Hallelujah! I am looking forward to seeing Daffodils and Cherry Blossoms to kick off Spring! However, the color winter white, off-white, cream, eggshell; whatever suits you best is still appropriate to wear now. I just love the color white in my home. It brightens up any room, particularly our Magnolia Bliss soy candle scented in Southern Magnolia packaged in a cream/off-white ribbon.

I am SO ready to say "Goodbye" to winter but winter white can stay around all year long! Here's our winter white & neutrals inspiration board filled with home decor and bridal ideas. Images courtesy of Helen Julia, Style Me Pretty and Elle Decor.

First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage...

Then comes mama with a baby carriage! This one is dedicated to all the mommies in the world who need a lot more recognition other than the day society tells us to recognize Mom! "How You Doin'?" as Wendy Williams, former radio personality and now television talk show host, would put it!

If you can use a day of rest, mini vacation or even a nap say "Amen"! Being a new mommy takes its toll; but always remember you are doing a wonderful job! It's one of the hardest jobs in the world that isn't eligible for bonuses, pay raises or planned vacations. Have no fear, Helen Julia is here! We are here to save the day! We cannot offer you a paid vacation or a cash bonus but we can suggest our Powder Puff soy candle scented in Innocent Powder. We understand you just don't have the time to take yourself to a spa and relax. So why not burn a Helen Julia Soy Candle to ease your mind for a little while at least. Bring the spa to you for a fraction of the cost!

This baby blue and baby pink inspiration board is dedicated to you, Mommies of the world! Images courtesy of Helen Julia, Style Me Pretty, Restoration Hardware and Anne Geddes Photography.

Bashful Pink

Wedding season is here! Flowers are blooming and brides are blushing! Helen Julia has the candle for you! Our "I Do" soy candle screams "Marry me" and "I love you", scented in Rose Bouquet. What a perfect wedding favor or decor accessory to celebrate your special day! It is packaged in a bashful pink ribbon as a symbol of "tying the knot". OK, all of our candles have beautiful colorful ribbon, but you get the gist of where I'm going with this.

Shown here is our pink inspiration board for some fun and romantic ideas for your wedding! Images courtesy of Maia Studio Photography, Style Me Pretty & Martha Stewart Weddings.

And The Oscar Goes To...

There were many first award recipients last night! What a night! I love the Oscars!

OK, let's get down to the nitty gritty with Oscar attire! My favorite dress was worn by Zoe Saldana! The color and style was just exquisite! She looked absolutely gorgeous! The best dress of the evening (just my opinion)!

Congratulations to Mo'Nique for winning best supporting actress in Precious, Sandra Bullock for best actress in The Blind Side and Kathryn Bigelow for best picture/director for The Hurt Locker! I can go on and on but these were the ones that stood out for me the most!

Happy Monday!
