How to enjoy candles in your home

Hello beautiful Ladies, first off a huge thank you to all of you for following my blog and my Facebook page!

The best feeling for a blogger is to be read, and i love feedback from you!

Today i will be sharing something quite different than health and beauty, but i think you will like it because we are all women and we love our home.

My passion for interiors is how i began blogging in the first place, and i will be posting from time to time some tips on how to enjoy your surroundings and make your home a more beautiful place to be! Because home is where our day begins and ends, where joyful moments happen, where major crisis happen!

I love candles, i find their light soothing (it makes us look better!), magical, festive, and very spiritual in a way (my mother always lights a candle for my kids when they have exams!).

Group them together for more impact

Put tea lights in a bowl of coffee beans, the warmth of the candles will heat up the beans and make your house smell like vanilla coffee!

I always light up candles at home, even if i’m all by myself. It relaxes me…What about you?

Living with kids is a stressful challenge, living with 4 is, well a nut house! In a good way!

Looking back at the years, i wonder how they didn’t drive me crazy! The key to staying calm in my experience, is just to ignore the little things and focus on the important stuff. I know, staying calm in the midst of a tantrum, a teenage girl with raging hormones, house work , and everything in between is not easy.

So why don’t you shut yourself in a bubble for 10 minutes?

I found this picture a couple of years ago in a magazine, i think it was an ad for coffee, and it made me smile because this is what i used to do when the kids were little and i couldn’t handle it anymore!

I would have my coffee, close my eyes, my ears, and just shut off the world for 10 minutes. They would be screaming, fighting,calling me, breaking something, while i was there sipping my coffee calmly as if nothing was happening around me, as if they weren’t killing each other in the next room and breaking the house down!

This bubble you put yourself into has the power to give you extra energy, recuperate, and get back to the craziness! Not only does this bubble calm you down, it centers you and makes you focus on one thing only. You. Kind of like yoga if you want (a 10 mn meditation!). Whatever is happening won’t touch you, just enjoy your moment of peace and savor each minute..

So steal yourself away in the midst of chaos, take a deep breath, and then get back into the jungle!

Do you have a “you” moment? Please share!
