DIY Organic Scented Candles

Hey everyone:) My name is Moe and I’m a candle collector. I have a collection of candles and it only got worse once I learned that I could make my own candles, and using non toxic materials! Apparently, I’m not the only one, cause I’ve been giving candles as gifts to my friends and they love them, at times complaining that I never give them enough. Today’s tutorial is about just that. I’m making scented non toxic candles from pure beeswax and nothing’s ever been easier.

Valentine’s is happening next week! Are you guys excited? Well I am. I love love (lol) but it’s true, I really do love the feeling of love, and to me, nothing says  “I love you” better than a gift that you have made with your own two hands. It shows that you actually thought about the person’s interest and gave your time to make a beautiful thing for your significant other (S.O). This Valentines, I’ll share gift ideas that you can make in very little time without breaking the bank and it will make your special person so happy. Fun fact!

Pearl Jewelry

“Life is made up of a few moments all strung together like pearls. Each moment is a pearl, and it is up to us to pick the ones with the highest luster. If we do not have time to do great things, take a few gentle moments and do small small things in a great way.”   Joyce Hilfer Pearls can be your perfect little addition to complete your look, dressed up or down. Last week, Grace and I did two valentines day looks for our little collabo. I already posted details on the casual look last week. In case you missed that one, you can check it out HERE.
