candles :: an obsession

I LOVE yummy smelling candles, especially those from Anthropologie. Lucky for me, I get a discount there, otherwise I might go broke. My go to candle has always been the Capri Blue Volcano scent, especially love it in the new mercury glass jar. Recently, I discovered two new scents that I am obsessed with. The first is Voluspa Ambre Lumiere and the second is Capri Blue African Jasmine. I am not a floral girl, I prefer musk and fruit scents. Although the African Jasmine is a little on the floral side, I am actually really liking it. Not only does is smell delicious, but how cute is that coral pink jar?

custom party :: shark boy

the invitation

My nephew loves Shark Boy & Lava Girl, so my sister-in-law decided throw him a Shark Boy 5th Birthday Party. She didn't want it to be cheesy, so she stuck with the idea of doing a cute shark silhouette. She asked me to help her with the invitation, happy birthday banner and water bottle labels. She also wanted a little design that she could put on t-shirts for the kids. No detail went unnoticed. Her sister Lauren made the cutest shark and life preserver cupcakes out of twinkies and mini powdered donuts. They had a shark pinata, and lot's of shark party favors like bubbles, etc. There was also pin the fin on the shark and fun water games for the kids. All in all, it was a definite success.
