It’s beginning to smell…a lot like Christmas.

If there is one holiday that can be easily captured by scent, it would be Christmas. Seriously. Pine needles, cranberries, gingerbread, spiced pumpkin, peppermint….all can easily transport me to my favorite holiday just by a sniff. This Deck The Halls candle by Slatkin & Co. has managed to do the exact same thing.

And don’t even ask me how. That secret is with the candle elves or somethin’.

Are you a candle lover? I absolutely love them. Sometimes I’ll flip off the lights and blog by candlelight. Which is like colonial style meets digital world, but hey….it works.

From Winter Candy Apple to Gingerbread, Everdeen and Cinnamon & Clove Buds, Slatkin & Co. is giving us so many ways to scent in our homes this holiday season.

You can snag this 14.5 oz candle at Bath & Body Works and BathAndBodyWorks.com for $19.50. Or even better…2 for $20. Considering this baby will burn for a good 40-65 hours, I know I’ll be getting a lot of use of it even after the holidays.

But my nose ain’t complaining.

And the world’s best tasting lip gloss goes toooo…

Why is it that every time I see the name C.O. Bigelow, I think of the movie Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo? I know, I know…how awful, am I? They have absolutely NOTHING to do with each other but guess which one rocks more than the other?

C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tints, of course! Please tell me you’ve heard of these? Please oh please. These are some of my favorite lippies. And for good reason. They taste good!! Not that I purposely go around eating my lipglosses . Oh come on! Don’t act like you’ve never licked your lips and accidentally tasted your gloss. You KNOW you’ve done it. While incidents like this leave me with a sour stomach, C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tints are surprisingly and pleasantly…yummy! You can find these tasty wonders at Bath & Body Works retailing for $7.50. Are they worth the price? I say so. They come in several shades. A few of them are super sheer and look great worn alone or on top of your favorite lipstick for some added moisture. And others are opaque enough to actually be seen when worn solo.

(l-r) Ginger Mint, Plum Mint, Violet Mint

Check out that Ginger Mint. Sparkle galore, uh? You may have to do some re-applying as these aren’t the longest lasting glosses in the world, but what they WILL do is keep your lippies moisturized for hours at a time. The 100% natural mint flavor feels cooling on the lips and it’s one of those glosses that you likely won’t stop using, even if you’ve found another favorite.

I loves these and will be scooping some up as stocking stuffers for the holiday season. I know. That holiday season will be rolling around before we know it. In fact, I’ve got my eyes on the Holiday Shortbread Lip Tint. Dear Heavens, that sounds just wonderful. But don’t worry…it’ll be for my lips only. I won’t go around eating it.

I promise.

Have you tried any C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tints?
