I have a brown thumb.  I've killed Ferns, Bamboo, you name it.  But I love plants and flowers so I keep trying.  I feel in love with Monkeys Always Look.  She sells mostly vintage silverware garden markers and succulents.   It's been a month and as you can see they are still alive and getting compliments even from my green thumbed mom.  Check out her stuff....I know I will be back for another terrarium!

Scent of Month - Summer Sorbet

It's hot!  This past June was recorded as one of the top four hottest June's for New York since recorded history.   We've gotten some relief these past couple of days and it's about to turn into a week-long heat wave of 90+ for the holiday week.
What better way to cool off than the sitting back with a bowl to cool fruity refreshing sorbet.  The thought of it just makes my mouth water!  This scent is amazing and worthy of scent of the month for July.  Available in many of our bath and body products as well as candle styles.  See our custom candle design for this scent on Etsy.
What do you do to stay cool for the summer?
