hOme made scent

Lovely smell in the house brings a smile to my face and warmth to the spirit...

Fancy scented candles can get expensive. Last year during the Christmas season I tried a great recipe, a homemade concoction that smell delicious in the house... Check out this post! Now, I have come across another version, the Williams Sonoma secret recipe. Courtesy of, One more moore.

Simple ingredients like lemon, vanilla and rosemary simmering for hours on the stove. Your house will smell sweet and delicious... Easy!

You will need:
Small cooking pot filled about 2/3 full with water, 1 lemon, sliced, and a few sprigs of rosemary. Let it simmer all day long, adding water as needed. Amazing!

My Blogging spot

Recently I was asked "where do you blog ?" and "when?" Suggesting that my readers would like to get a small pick at the behind the scene.

The answer is anywhere really! I use my iPhone to "write" down ideas and thoughts on the go. When I get more time, I settle down to finish the writing process and upload on the blog. Usually in the evening or during Luella's nap. I get comfy with a cup of green tea, some almond... and Diptyque scented candle to please the senses.

What about you fellow bloggers? 

Ready for October...

Good morning and happy October!

Looking forward to Halloween festivities, I hope to inspire you with some spooky stylish fun. It's also breast cancer awareness month and there is plenty of way to get involved. More this month? Planing to introduce you to an inspirational lady. And so much more... Keep you posted!
