Lately it’s been crucial for me to have a daily routine that involves some serious down-time. As much fun as we’ve been having, sometimes Shawn and I just need a little ‘us’ time to decompress, chill-out and enjoy each other’s company. This time in our lives is so special, and quality time throughout our schedules has become our favourite ritual.
We make sure that every day when we get home, we light some candles, throw on the ‘ol tunes, have a pillow fight and really relax. I’m obsessed with candles, like, really obsessed, but recently I’ve become aware of how many toxic chemicals they are made with. If you think about it, you’re breathing that air in and causing harm to your body when you’re supposed to be doing something therapeutic! Not cool.
During our time in Vancouver, I’ve been trying to explore local companies to share with you guys (not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’m pretty proud to be Canadian) and do blog features on what I really love. I was excited to come across this candle company called Vancouver Candle Co. They’re a local duo who hand-make all of their candles right here in Vancity. Each scent is natural and designed to smell like the neighbourhood that inspired it…brilliant! Since I love myself a good beach smell, I have to say my favourite scent is Kitsilano!
Best part about these products is that they are 100% clean burning, so you don’t have to worry about breathing in harmful toxins OR about the environment. WIN-WIN, I’d say. Nicely done boys!
On top of the fact that these are local, smell delish, are non-toxic, and last FOREVER the packaging is sharp and makes for a nice little touch to your home, or the perfect gift.
Hope you guys like them… we sure do.
