This Week's Most Loved Trio | Six


We've made it through the first week of 2014. We didn't hit the end of the world (oh, Hollywood...). And while reigning in the new year--homebody stylée--I began to note my beauty resolutions. Yet, it's a week later and I'm still adding another to the list: more lifestyle posting.

Is there any denying the fact that there has been a great influx in beauty products in my life? Non, so to peter the crème de la crème to trois would be infeasible. Instead, I've penned and narrowed down a lonesome three items for this week's most loved notes.

I've often been called a 'fish' on account of my water guzzling prowess--and often get annoyed looks from waiters as the return ten a few times to refill my glass. But, baby, it's cold outside, and I've swapped my usual aqua downing for green tea; my current steep being the Trader Joe's Organic Green Tea. Although it boasts a multitude of catechins (or antioxidants), let's state the obvious: it tastes amazing. So, even if it had no benefits at all, I'd still be sucking it down.
Yet, perhaps not as often if it weren't for this red mug. Although I turned it around in the picture--dumb move, Lillian--it showcases a single 'L' in blue print that compliments the red floral print. And it's also massive; massive enough to hold those gallons of hot tea.

Despite the current exceeding jars of wicks ready to be lit in my living quarters, I just had to add another. I was in Anthropologie (who sells the most amazing candles, by the way) and staggered around--as you do when you're executing the task of 'Christmas shopping.' I stumbled upon the Boulangerie candles, the brand of which boasts my single 'burn to the bottom' light: the Whipped Cream and Pear candle. Their holiday scents were on sale, and do you really think I could resist that? I parted with their Gingersnap Candle; it's warm, spicy, and slightly sweet. Boulangerie's candles tend to be more sugary to say the least, but they're never over the top and smell lovely.

And when it's time to blow the candle out and to roll up the covers (four layers worth, in my situation), I've been spritzing the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray on my pillow before I begin counting sheep. The blend of lavender, chamomile, and vetivert is calming and a subtle sniff is inhaled with each breath. Luckily, the blend is made with one hundred percent pure essential oils, so you won't be nosing any artificial perfumes. Also, This Works conducted a study, testing the value of their calming spray, and the participants fell asleep faster, had a deeper sleep, felt less tired in the morning, and felt less anxious when their heads hit the pillow. Just remind me not to get too spritz happy when I have an early wakeup call.

Unfortunately, tomorrow's another monday, but, on the contrary, my room will be smelling nicer, I'll get a better night's rest, and I'll have all those extra antioxidants amassed in my system; these are essentials, I tell you.

  1. That mug is gorgeous! I know what you mean about the green tea - I'm very much a coffee drinker but there are some days where you just feel like detoxing and feeling fresh and really healthy, and those are the days when I turn to green tea. Love this post!

  11. I always thought the This Works pillow spray was perfect for my mum, and I picked it up a few weeks ago as a Christmas gift for her: she love it! I could use it sometimes too! I'm so curious about how it works on me ;) that candle sounds lovely!

  16. Merci. Well, kind of; I take French at school, so I can get around and know enough, but I'm definitely better at writing in French than speaking. xo

  17. Thank you. I'm a coffee drinker, too; sometimes it upsets my stomach and makes me jittery, so I'm restricted to one cup a day. xo

  19. I usually don't believe in things like aromatherapy, but I am a hoooorrible sleeper, so I am willing to be open to it and give that spray a try!

  20. Ha--I do that all the time (why else did I buy her the Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Lush Nectarine...or the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, or a NARS Eyeshadow Duo?). xo
