  • Woodwick Candle in Christmas Evergreen fragrance.  Woodwick is known for its crackle & pop sound - just like a fireplace! (soy based)
  • Bath Salts in Ginger Lime fragrance.  Sprinkle a tablespoon or so into bath water...bath salts pull the impurities and toxins out of your body (during this time of year it helps to keep you from getting sick)
  • Bubble bath Cupcake in Ginger Lime.  This is a hot item!
  • Decorative glass container.  Can be used as a reed diffuser or can also be  filled with bubble bath ingredients!

  1. Beautiful images - something so EARTHY about a real fireplace. They create such a wonderfully rich atmosphere in a room - and nothing better than snuggling up in front of a roaring fire while the rain pitter-patters outside.

  8. Even though I'm not big on fireplaces, I don't like cleaning them out. I love a great looking one and I love the ones you have shown, they look so cozy {side note: I'm not entering the giveaway}

  9. OMG! where are these places? I look like a Native in front of such gorgeous homes!

  10. My fireplace actually looks similar to the 3rd picture (which i have been looking to dress it up a bit). It's a gas and wood burning but I was thinking about taking out the gas this year and burning real wood, hubby thinks it's too much work and messy, as does another reader. Verdict is still out but any opinions are welcome!!!

    I follow both and those products look amazing!

    xoxo
