Fall Candle Haul

Fall is my favorite season, but fall scents at Bath and Body Works might be my favorite time of the year. Some people get excited about college football starting, I get excited about making my house smell like pumpkins. Priorities...

I was so excited that I found a B+BW gift card my parents got me last year for my birthday while I was moving. I logged on before work this morning and have an amazing-smelling package coming my way shortly thanks to the 2 for $20 candle sale AND and additional 20% off coupon (Code = AUGBBW)!

Here's my haul:





Not really fall-related, but smells so good! 

Do you have any favorite fall scents? You can tell I gravitate more towards sweet smells...

Lemon Love

Van Gogh went through a blue phase, and it looks like I'm going through a lemon phase. Ever since I painted my kitchen yellow, I've been obsessed with all things lemon. This includes purchasing a lemon tree, a mini lemon tree for my table, and an overall obsessing over anything that looks, tastes, or smells like lemon.

Pallet Art

I love the look of reclaimed wood, and a few days ago I had the grand idea of reusing some pallet wood I'd seen laying around as art for over my fireplace mantle. Thanks to the wonders of the information super highway, I quickly found out that I was not a unique snowflake for inventing this creative gem, but I was able to find some "Pinspiration" online.

True Life: Paralyzed by Paint Choices

The only thing harder for me than choosing my wedding dress, choosing a house, and the worst - a washer and dryer - is paint colors. I just get paralyzed by choice! I get it from my dad, who has the hardest time choosing off of any menu that has more than one page. I know it.

I have some friends coming over tonight for a painting party, so I had to choose pretty quickly! After a lot of back-and-forth and many lifeline phone calls to friends, I think we're going with these.
