Scentsational Scoop {Green Moss by IZOLA}

I first purchased this candle simply due to look of the container and crest-like label. I love the vintage look of the candle, and it blends so well with the decor of my home.

I am happy to report the the scent throw of the Green Moss scent is absolutely wonderful, fresh and inviting.

From the website:

“When we get home from a long workday at our office in Chelsea there a few things we need to unwind. One is a drink… another is an Izola candle. Frustrated with the agonizingly pungent fragrances of common candles, we developed one made from 100% vegetable wax that comes in six natural fragrances a man won’t mind.

Izola candles are made in the USA from renewable resources. The wax is hand-poured into eight-ounce recycled, colored glass containers that have a rustic, weathered, and charming design quality. In keeping good faith with our old-world, utilitarian ethics, these candles are built to last and maintain their fragrance through 60 hours of burning time.

We think they are the perfect compliment to our cocktail shakers at a bar, to our toothbrush sets in a bathroom, and to our desk objects in an office. Join us in lighting one and let’s “rekindle an old flame.”

Grand Isle Weekend with Friends

J & I spent a great weekend once again in Grand Isle with best friends, Margo, Monique, "Nutty", and Mike. This weekend was the annual Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo, so the island was packed.

Margo's family owns a camp, Winston Place, on the beach in such a perfect location.

We sipped. 

We ate.

We laughed. 

We gossiped. 

We had a great weekend.

It was such a nice weekend to catch up with "old" friends.

Grand Isle fun, y'all!
