One of my favorite things...

One of the most important parts of a home to me is ambience. Not only for when you have guests over, but after a long day at work it's important to come home and unwind. One of the best and easiest ways is some soft music and a great scented candle. My FAVORITE is from Tocca and is named ' Cleopatra' ( I love just the name! ). Now, never mind the history lesson where it's actually historically pronounced 'Cle-OP-tra' - it just smells GREAT. From the website -they describe it better than I ever could

"A blend of cucumber and grapefruit emits a light and clean, yet luxuriously exotic scent for the bathroom, underscoring Cleopatra’s indulgence for her milk baths."

Now, did they even have cucumbers ( or grapefruit for that matter) in ancient Egypt? I really doubt it -but just check it out sometime and forget these formalities. I promise you you won't regret it ( and now you know what to get me if you ever need a gift idea! ). Plus these last forever! They say 60 hours -but I think they last more like 70.
Check out the website too if you ever get a chance. Their marketing director must be tres chic - gorgeous photography, slick styling and LOVE that robins egg blue!
