I know it’s been a while….a long, long while, since I’ve written anything here. To be honest, not all that much has been going on.
Yes, I’ve been traveling. Yes, I’ve been seeing tons of concerts and shows (including traveling to concerts and shows). Yes, I’ve been lucky enough to attend some cool events. And yes, I have recently gone gluten free and have been learning my ins and out around that. But nothing big enough, or exciting enough has gone down that I felt compelled enough to open this puppy up and get writing again.
Until today. Yep, today I finally felt like it was time to pick things up again.
What’s that magic THING you ask?
Why it’s ZenaMoon and Carla’s amazing candles, of course. And talk about magical…each candle is handmade with love and intention with a special blend of scents and gemstones.
Now I wouldn’t say these candles are something you buy because it matches your decor or your favorite scent. No, these candles have a purpose. For my upcoming summer of focus and producivity (after what feels like one of my most wasted and unproductive years in quite some time), I opted for the a candle for writing and coming out of hiding. And Carla included a fun little giftie self-nurture candle (which I’m burning as I write this).
The orange and cranberry swirled a candle for writing candle is scented with mango and orange and has carnelian gemstone mixed in. Carnelian is said to protect from bad vibrations, guard against poverty, strengthen courage, vitality, confidence and action. And according to one source, “in ancient times it was used in battle to impart courage to warriors and in public speaking to bestow the gift of eloquence.” The gift of eloquence will certainly be helpful when writing, no?
The beautiful, purpley-green swirly coming out of hiding candle is scented with freesia and mint (yum!). And has aventurine which is said to have properties to increase perception and creative insight. And bring on the luck. Works for me.
I can’t wait to light them up and get busy!!
