Anthology Candles : Themed candles with a dash of Whimsy!

Hi guys! I hope you’re all doing great. Lately, I’ve been thinking about starting to post/feature some of my favorite stuff (bookish and non-bookish related) here on my blog. What do you think? It’s also a way to keep my blog updated as well as to share great stuff with you guys since my reading this (and last) month is a total failure. I hope you’re all okay with it. If not then I can’t do anything about it. 😀 Thank you for staying though. ♥

So, I want to introduce you guys to my latest addiction. Don’t worry it doesn’t have anything to do with drugs. It has something to do with scented soy candles from Anthology Candles. I received the candles few days ago and since then, I can’t stop myself from lighting (and smelling) them. I promise you guys, they smell absolutely amazing.

Anthology Candles is a husband and wife duo – Stephen and Rheney Williams – in Charleston, SC who are as passionate about all things “whimsical” as we are about candles.

Relationship goals, right? ♥ Their scented candles are made with all-natural soy wax and original scents they’ve developed. The exciting part is that all the candles are themed! From Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Walt Disney, C.S. Lewis, Tolkien, Lewis Carroll, to JK Rowling.

I chose the Baker Street Flat (because Sherlock. Need I say more?) and Mad Hatter’s Tea Party (because I love Mad Hatter and want to experience having a tea party with him.) I have to admit that I had a hard time choosing only two candles because they have a lot of great themes.

BAKER STREET FLAT (scents: Sweet Tobacco, Wood, Leather)

Our Baker Street Flat candle smells exactly like you’d expect: Sweet and smooth tobacco from Sherlock’s pipe, leather-bound books and leather chairs, and notes of earthy wood from his violin.

I was excited with this one because I love the smell of leathers and earthy wood. And guess what? This instantly became my favorite. I love the combination of the scents. I can stay the whole day at home reading a good book (of course, one of Sherlock Holmes books) smelling this scent. Like what I said on my Instagram post, all that’s missing is Benedict Cumberbatch.

MAD HATTER’S TEA PARTY (Chamomile Tea, Bakery Cakes with Vanilla Icing, Twist of Cinnamon)

Once you light our Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Candle, unlike the guests at the tea party in Wonderland, you won’t want the party to end! The delicious aroma of sweet bakery cakes, vanilla and Chamomile tea with a hint of cinnamon in this “mad” orange candle fills the room with the scent of a fantastical tea party… with a twist.

It’s not only the smell that is delicious but also the color of the candle. Honestly, I thought at first I will not like the smell of it because it’s a bit too sweet for me but it changed when I started lighting it. The smell became less sweet and more yummy. I’m okay if it’s always tea time if the scent of this candle is present.

I’m using (burning) these candles almost every night but they still look like brand new. I can say that aside from the wonderful scents of the candles, the quality of them is also superb.

JORD Wood Watches : “Moments are better than minutes.”

Hi guys! A very special package arrived few days ago and I’m still (and forever will be) in love with what’s inside. Are you ready to be amazed?

Jordpronounced as Yord, is Swedish for earth, soil, land.

For those who haven’t heard of JORD Wood Watches, they produce high quality and very unusual timepieces that will surely make you gasp and say “WOW!”. Well, I did. Their stunning watches, both for men and women, are being hand crafted from 100% natural wood from all over the world. Woods like ebony, koa, purpleheart, maple, zebrawood, rosewood, sandalwood, and bamboo. Each piece has its own color and grain pattern (because of the nature of the wood) so it means that no wood watches will look exactly the same. They offer a wide range of selection that will definitely suit your taste and personal style.

I have chosen the Ely Maple series and I was very impressed. It comes in a shiny wooden box with a slide off lid and wrapped around a custom embroidered pillow. I would like to commend the team behind JORD for having one of the most gorgeous packaging I’ve ever seen. Their devotion to give their customers quality product is already shown just with the box itself.

Daniel Wellington : A watch for every occassion.

I was so thrilled when I got a collaboration proposal from Ms. Willing of Daniel Wellington. Who am I to say no to this great opportunity. I checked their website to see their collection and instantly found a perfect one for me. I chose the Classy Winchester Rose Gold because I personally love the combination of the blue and pink nato strap. Also, the name has Winchester on it. *ahem* Dean and Sam.

I got an email (Feb 18) that my parcel is on its way and surprisingly, I got it on the next day. Super fast delivery and lovely packaging! One of the things that I love about the watch is the simplicity of it. It doesn’t have too many features which I prefer on a wristwatch. I’m a little picky when it comes to wearing a wristwatch because most of the time I feel uncomfortable and irritated because of its weight. I’m so satisfied that this DW watch is light and very comfortable to wear.
