True confession: I love back to school shopping. Office supplies make me giddy because I’m kind of Type A and very into paper goods (and planners). A new school year is like a new year, so there’s a chance to catch your breath and shift your goals and buy new glasses or shoes or pencils for the sake of education. Huzzah! « Read the rest of this entry »

So many good things about summer, but mostly peach season. Last Saturday morning, I took Danny to the Peach Stand— which is exactly what it sounds like, a stand that sells locally grown peaches and produce in the heart of Fort Mill (aka my hometown). It was so fun to show him a little piece of where I grew up. Hope your weekend is sweet and sunny!
I may or may not have eaten two peaches while typing this.

It’s still winter, but I couldn’t be happier with the two new scents in the shop- No.16 and Ilha! No.16 is lilac, jasmine, and sandalwood. Ilha is teakwood and coconut. I haven’t stopped burning either one since their creation. My apartment is a candle. Of course, many of the original scents are perfect year long. But these feel extra sunny.
In addition to the candles, I’ve updated the shop with a new bundle of ceramics. So very exciting! Hope you enjoy.

I’m so very excited to offer miniature gold tins over in the One Morning shop. Since it is difficult to make blind purchases without the luxury of shopping in person, the Mini Tin Set has been created with dual purpose! A. To offer a smaller candle that you can try before committing to the biggies. B. To have the comfort of your favorite candle tucked in your bag for any & all emergencies. Traveling with a familiar scent instantly makes me feel home, happy, and grounded. I hope you like these babies. They’re excited to meet to you!
P.S. The first batch of ceramic candles sold out quickly, but luckily there are some new ones! Stay tuned for very, very exciting Spring goodies to come. February & March are going to rock… And smell super good doing it.

So I launched a little candle line in November on Etsy. (If you follow me on IG, you know this already & might as well get used to the candle pix.) The shop is something that felt natural after falling in love with candle-making. A process which is equal parts creativity, patience, concentration, and listening to Billy Holiday. I wanted to make sure the four candles appealed to a variety of scent preferences and aren’t restricted by season. And I am SO FREAKING grateful for everyone who has placed an order in the few short weeks. Y’all rock.
I’ve since added three more candles to the shop to suit your holiday gifting needs (gifts for yourself count!). These are seasonal, warm, and festive. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. I’ve been burning the ‘Forest’ scent nonstop since putting up a miniature Christmas tree. Spoiler alert: everyone in my family is getting one of those this year. (The candle, not the tree. That baby is all mine.)
Give good gifts, give candles.

I was back home in the Carolinas last week for the holidays and spent the entire time sleeping in and eating poultry with my love. Tough life. I also had plenty of time to visit all my favorite shops and some newbies (Holder Goods & Crafts! Woo!). I love Raleigh because it feels like a wonderfully kept secret (even though it’s one of the fastest growing city in America). Somehow, I had never been to Yellow Dog Bread Co., so Danny suggested we go. I regret not buying bread for our Thanksgiving table or at least a dozen toasted-coconut almond scones for the road, but maybe next time. Here are some photos of Yellow Dog because I had to pass along the pretty.
