Ahhh, Portland in November. No one said that we should expect warm balmy days when we moved here. And actually, being pale and afraid of premature wrinkling has actually made me love the cloudy, sunless days. However, on days like today, when I am trying to get into the holiday spirit, the relentless rain can be a bit of a downer.
So what to do? Well, at urban waxx we light about 4 of our delicious new holiday candles.
Our candles are created by a wonderful line out of Texas, Jimmy Belasco Soy Candles. For the holidays, they came out with 2 cheery scents: Merry Merry Cranberry and Majestic Pine. And of course, we also adore the 9 or 10 other yummy smells that we keep burning all day long! Each candle is pure soy and burns for about 40 hours. And I can tell you from experience that they make excellent hostess gifts and stocking stuffers!
Anything to keep those dreary Portland gray days at bay!
