It’s been awhile since I’ve posted one of my essentials, but since I spend a good portion of my income on candles, I thought it only made sense to share my essential one: Unionmade and Baxter of California’s KML candle. It’s a mouthful, but I promise it smells like perfection. Well I guess that depends on how you define perfection, but for me, a campfire in the middle of the forest is what I’d prefer (not ACTUALLY, just in candle-form). This Unionmade x Baxter candle smells exactly like that.

Don’t forget I’m terrible at describing scents, but it’s a blend of Cedar and Sandalwood, with a layer of musk that really hits you after a few minutes of burning it. It’s not super strong but it definitely makes my whole place smell good. I often pair it with my favorite incense, which adds another layer of campfire, and then you’re outside under the stars surrounded by the woods IS WHAT IT’S LIKE.

Anyway, I personally like the 3-wick version because we go through them so quickly, but they’ve recently come out with this ceramic one that’s making my life a whole lot better, etc. Lucky for us, there’s a Unionmade store just minutes from our apartment in Brentwood and we are literally there every few months stocking up. Want me to pick one up for you? Can’t live without.

Weekend Update

Filed Under : DIY - EAT - MY LIFE

For me, this weekend was all about relaxing and settling into my new apartment.  We strolled around the Brentwood Country Mart so I could visit my favorite store (Sugar Paper) and Kyle could visit his (Unionmade), we ventured to Ikea to pick up some random home furnishings, and we saw Bridesmaids (was hilarious).

We also did some of my favorite activities; i.e. shop at Zara, visit the Anthropologie sale, make coffee in a french press, roast veggies, and Netflix old episodes of Arrested Development.  I love low-key weekends!  Here are some highlights:
