illuminations.jpgI am so happy because today I hung my fall wreath on my front door and the high is now below 100 degrees in Arizona (98 isn’t so bad), welcome October!  Since I have to create the feeling of autumn in the sunny desert, I am making a stop at my favorite candle retailer, Illuminations, tomorrow and picking up fall fragances to fill my house. I love the smell of their pumpkin pie candles and on their website they have a few new scents such as oak forest, spiced orange and cinnamon sugar that I am excited to try!  Illuminations is great because they are not too pricey (I would love to buy Diptyque and Jo Malone candles but can’t justify spending $60 on something I will burn!) Large glass jar candles are around $20 and burn up to 100 hours, they also have tons of pillars and votives with very stylish holders.  Besides the great price, they are very well made and smell so good you’ll want to eat them! (okay maybe not) So even though I cannot bake a pumpkin pie, my house can smell like one and that makes me smile.

    I love walking past stores like these – the only problem is, is that I have a senstivite nose – and too many smells usually makes me sneeze non stop for half an hour!!
