Hi everybody! I hope you had a good weekend. My mom came up from Toronto and we had a really nice visit — tried a new dessert place, watched some of Jim Gaffigan’s stand-up on Netflix and scoped out a couple of houses coming up for sale. We do this cute thing where we dream we’ll be able to find something larger in the neighbourhood. And then they post the listing. 😩😩 You can’t buy a house bigger than this box for under a mill! 😩😩 But I digress. Let’s get to this box. Vellabox is a candle subscription that delivers artisanal, small-batch candles made with 100% soy or coconut wax, top-quality fragrance oils and lead-free cotton wicks. You get one each month (chosen with your favourite fragrances in mind) plus a surprise gift from a natural lifestyle brand.

Here’s a closer look.Continue reading Artisanal candles monthly: Vellabox April 2022

We’ve reached that point in January where I start to feel embarrassed that we still have our Christmas tree up and yet apparently not enough to do anything about it (some years we’ve kept it ’til Valentine’s Day 😂😬). As much as I love the decorations and the twinkly lights, it’s scent of the tree I’ll miss the most. Tho how much of that is tree and how much is candle is hard to tell. 😂😂 I love a good woodsy burn! And the candle subscription service Vellabox absolutely nailed it with their fresh and woodsy pick for December.Continue reading An all-natural candle subscription service: Vellabox December 2021
