EauMG’s June 2015 Empties

June 2015 Empties

What happened to June??? Well, for starters, I had family in ALL month, yes, all month. So my time was spent playing tour guide and host. That’s exhausting. Words to the not-so-wise like myself, establish a “three day” rule and stick with it. It wasn’t a bad month, but as you can imagine, it was an exhausting one.

My sisters love makeup and products just as much as I do. We ended up doing a lot of makeup shopping. I ended up buying those Bath & Body

Votivo Jasmine Neroli & Azure Garden Candle Review

It’s Easter and I really should be stuffing my face with Cadbury Creme Eggs but before I start doing that, here’s two quick Votivo candle reviews:

Votivo Jasmine Neroli

Jasmine Neroli with notes of mandarin, guava, angelica, jasmine, tuberose, white musk, vanilla and woods.

This is a tropical fruit white floral.It’s a tart but syrupy guava over “clean” jasmine with a backdrop of vanilla and woods. I’m usually not a fan of “tropical” home fragrances but I like this one. It’s fun but isn’t a campy “poolside tiki… Continue reading

Votivo Bright Leaf Tobacco

Votivo Floure Candles as a line of candles in these gorgeous vessels inspired by the fringe on flappers’ dresses. This collection features Votivo’s most popular fragrances.

Votivo Holiday Candles: Reviews of Winter Cranberry & Dulce Caramelo

Votivo is a wonderful line of candles. They have quite a few that I consider staples in my candle arsenal. Every year I get excited for their Holiday line.

Votivo Winter Cranberry

The packaging is very glamorous. I like that is holiday but not too holiday. This line is are more wintery. The larger candles are housed in a “silver” mirrored vessel with the Votivo logo. The box is metallic and I want a wallpaper like it 😉 The candles are also available in a travel tin, not as glamorous but… Continue reading | 3 Comments
