When it comes to things around the house – style, colors, decorating – Jordan and I are usually right in sync with one another. We both love old things, neutral colors, and a relaxed, comfy atmosphere.
We find it fun to drive around and look at old houses, admiring the architecture and gathering ideas for our own home. On a recent trip to Tennessee, I can’t tell you how many times the words “Whoa…look at that house!” were exclaimed by one or both of us during the ride.
Hey…I never said we were cool. 😉
But old Southern houses are pretty amazing.
My point being – I don’t usually have to worry when I come home with something or come up with a new idea for what I want to do around here – if I like it, I know he’s probably going to like it too, and vice-versa.
Except when it comes to one thing…
We do not see eye to eye.
Or maybe I should say nose to nose…
I can’t tell you how many times I have brought home what I thought was a fabulous smelling candle, only to have him proclaim his utter disgust for it.
The disagreement may have even sparked a fight or two. Don’t you love those stupid fights over nothing? It’s funny later, but in the moment it is ugggly. 😀
Happily, I can say our candle fights are over. I have found the most delicious and yummy smelling candles. I seriously can’t get enough of them, and because I thought maybe you may be needing relief from the smelly candle wars in your home (because every married couple has them, right?), I wanted to share. 🙂
Say hello to Sydney Hale Co. candles!
I found them in a local shop (Lucky Junk in Arlington Heights if you’re near Chicago), and I am obsessed.
So far I’ve brought home the Eucalyptus + Sage (currently burning this one as I type – it’s divine!) and Woodsmoke + Amber – and both are husband approved. I didn’t even have to ask his opinion, he walked in and complimented them both – burning on separate occasions of course – without being prompted. I can’t really decide which one I love more.
I’m told there is an Oaked Bitter Orange scent that is out of this world, so I’ve got my eyes open for that one to show up at the shop. I kind of just want to try them all out, really. 🙂
By the way, this is not a sponsored post, just me sharing something I love and spreading the word on a product that I’m really excited about. Plus, I love the fact that a portion of their proceeds go toward dog rescue. What’s not to love about all of that?
You can browse their online shop (where you’ll see scents like Applewood + Birch, Garden Mint, or Blue Spruce + Spearmint…yum!) and look for a retailer near you here.
Hope you all have a beautiful weekend!
