Autumn & Libras

Etsy celebrates Autumn with our fall-scented super-sized votives on their front page on 10/8 as well as the October zodiac sign Libra today. Our nifty candle tins made it up there again! Woo hoo. I love fall. The leaves turn these vibrant colors in New York, the air is cool and fresh for a great night's sleep and apple picking to make fresh baked apple pie is a must every Sunday. What's your favorite season?

Libra's are considered strong willed, objective and romantic. I think I know a couple of male Libras and 2 out of 3 ain't bad. I am true to the Virgo sign in a nutshell. Do you follow the zodiac sign personalities? Are you what your zodiac sign says you are?

Breast cancer awareness is a lifetime for some.

Although October is Breast Cancer Awareness month the survivors and loved ones are aware every month. Unfortunately almost everyone in their lifetime is bound to have breast cancer affect us personally, among our family, friends or coworkers. That is why everyone should lend a hand to the organizations who provide support and are fighting for a cure.

I designed a 4oz clean burning soy candle in five "awareness" scents (phthalate-free) and packaged in the pink.
Your candle will also come with a pink awareness bracelet imprinted with the corresponding scent to show your support everywhere.

Get one (or two) for yourself or someone your thinking of.

  • SURVIVOR: (aka Pink Lace) A beautiful blend of exotic jasmine and sweet strawberry.
  • HOPE: (aka pink paper pop) A clean fresh fragrance.
  • FAITH: The sweet smell of girly pink cupcakes.
  • STRENGTH: An aroma of soft pink carnations.
  • COURAGE: The succulent aroma of summer melons. (there isn’t a corresponding bracelet so you may choose any of the other ones)
  • LOVE: We have left this unscented (there isn’t a corresponding bracelet so you may choose any of the other ones)

    **With every purchase 40% will be donated to the
    Susan G. Komen Foundation or The Sisters Network as a thank you.**

    Thank you for fighting the fight for our sisters

    Thank you for supporting us and letting survivors and family know they are not alone.

    Thank you for making us aware

    My goal is to raise $300 for each organization. Help me get there.

    The Breast Cancer Awareness Candle w/bracelet are on sale now exclusively on Etsy in my shop until I reach my goal.
