Fabulously Southern and Smelling Divine!
A quick tip to bring instant “fab” into your home and a simple secret amongst myself and my Southern girlfriends is to always, and I mean always make sure your home smells amazing. Recently, I helped host the Annual Tour of Homes fundraiser for the local museum and we showcased my newly remodeled home. I chose to light up everyone’s sense of smell by burning my favorite scented candle, “White Ginger Lily” by Aquiesse.
It is truly heaven and I am not lying when I said we literally ran out of those candles on the day of the event at our “Champagne After Party” at the store. Anyone who has been at my home that day were coming into the store looking for that candle! It made such an impression!
When someone walks into your home you create an immediate relationship with each of their senses. To be conscious of design does not only mean aware of what people will see visually.
So, here is the thing. Candles can be costly! At $48.99 a pop my favorite candle only makes an appearance during very special occasions or when I really need a reminder of the finer things in life! What do I do the rest of the time. It’s no secret!
And, I am NEVER caught empty handed without refills! You immediately create a connection with your friends, family, dinner guests – even your kids! My kids will comment on the new fragrances I try from season to season and they are great judges to let you know when something is just “not quite right.” And, these are so easy! You can pick them up right at the grocery store! Save your candles for special and get those Glade Plugins out for your everyday. It is a welcoming feeling to walk into your home and have it always smelling fabulous.
Live Inspired and Stay Fabulous!
