My Top Fall Scents

Fall is my favorite season for candles and other forms of amazing scents like wax melts and potpourri. I love all of the rich scents that make you feel warm and cozy. Here are my top fall scents for 2013. Some of these are tried and true others are new and absolutely delicious.

Pumpkin Spice from Mainstays Candles
This is my all time favorite pumpkin scented candle.  It's not too sweet or too spicy and can fill your entire room with a delicious scent really quickly.  Added bonus it's insanely affordable!

Where To Buy It:  Wal-mart or Amazon

Mahogany Teakwood from White Barn Home Candles

Mahogany Teakwood is described as "A cozy blend of mahogany, cedarwood and oak, highlighted by delicate lavender and geranium notes" on the Bath and Body Works website, but ask any teenager and they will tell you it smells just like an Abercrombie store. I personally really enjoy this scent, however my Husband hates it.  I think women actually enjoy it more because it smells similar to a Men's cologne.

Where To Buy It: Bath and Body Works or Amazon

 Mulled Cider by Mainstays Candles

Mulled Cider by Mainstays is the perfect dupe for the Bath and Body Works candle Cider Lane which I believe is discontinued.  The Mainstays candle gives off the same strength delicious scent for lest than half the price!

Where To Buy: Wal-Mart

Warm Crackling Campfire Wax Cubes by Better Homes & Gardens

The Better Homes & Gardens wax cubes are my favorite! They work well with any type of was warmers and give off very strong scents from only one or two cubes.  This particular scent is one of my favorite and pairs well with a lot of other candles and scents.  Careful though, it definitely makes you want to waste your day under the blankets reading a good book.

Where To Buy: Wal-Mart or Amazon

Rustic Retreat Aroma Beads by Mainstays

This particular scent is great for your living room because it's so inviting.   I like to purchase this scent in either candle form, or these great aroma beads.   It smells great on it's own or paired with any of the scents I've already mentioned.  I am almost positive this is a new fall scent for 2013 and I am beyond glad this came into my life.

Where To Buy:  Wal-Mart

There you have it, the five scents you absolutely need to add to your fall collection.  While you're thinking about fall, head on over to www.bleuvous.com and check out all of the great fall fashion and beauty trends being talked about.   You may have noticed I've been MIA since...

DIY Fails

You've seen them all over Facebook and Pinterest, often with a "nailed it" tagline. DIY projects that the original creator makes look so easy, but when the average person tries it they come up short of success. Here are a collection of some of my favorite DIY Fails and a few that aren't DIY projects but too funny not to share.

Emma's Birthday Wish

Today on my Facebook feed I came across something heart breaking. A young girl from my town, Emma Ritter has been battling cystic fibrosis since she was only 18 months old.

On Monday, Emma will be spending her 7th birthday in the hospital recovering from one of several surgeries she's had to undergo.

Emma told her mother that her only birthday wish was to receive 100 Birthday Cards. This sweet angel who has gone through so much in her few years really shows how mature she is by such a simple request.

If you would like to help make Emma's birthday wish come true you can send her a birthday card to;
Emma Ritter, Room 506
C/O: Children's Hospital Central California
9300 Children's Place
Madera, CA 93636

To hear more about this story, and watch the video you can go to Emma's Birthday Wish for the official news report.
