Well cut designer suits, dresses and coats; White Gold Jewellery; Designer SHOES and handbags as well as hats; scarves; gloves; sunglasses; fun Mimco Jewellery accessories and Holster Bling flats are included in my organised pinklily wardrobe. My life must include going to the Theatre; Dancing and Fine Dining. I like to spend time Listening to Music especially Jazz by Diana Krall; Reading my favourite Fashion Magazines, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Vanity Fair with a cup of cappuccino at my side; Swimming in the pool; or experiencing Sydney Cafe Life and amazing Restaurants. Must mention how I enjoy spending time with my iMac; being part of a wide world of social media; My Blog; Twitter; Pinterest; Facebook; & chatting on my iPhone. I love challenges, new experiences, expanding my world and learning about great new ideas in design and style. Time spent with creative, people is interesting and exciting.

SCENTED CANDLES For Friends and on my Santa List.

I had more than the 10 gifts to buy on my list that I finalised in my last blog, so I thought more about my favourite things and this was again to think about the people to whom I was giving the gifts. When I need to tune out from the day, my go to plan is to turn off the lights and choose one of my favourite scented candle and just de stress and enjoy my own private time to relax. Perfume is a personal choice of course but with candles I can choose a variety depending on my needs. It is a good idea to  know your friend's favourite perfume if giving a candle as a gift. Remember what they commented on when they visited you.
I am always amazed at the number of burning hours in the more exclusive brands. I do have a great secret to share with you about making that a reality. I discovered this after having received some beautiful   Crabtree & Evelyn Candles in gorgeous etched glass votives from my daughter. Trim the wick before you light the candle for the first time and burn for about 2 hours or so that the wax melts right across to both of the sides of the container. This will allow the candle to burn equally down the container. 
It would be remiss of me not to say that any candle must be watched over from a safety point of view. If you trim the wick each time it will reduce the smoke and the beautiful perfume will be evident immediately. 

Crabtre& Evelyn have online specials at the moment gift
with purchase offers and Outlet Store Specials. BirkenHead Point in Sydney has had a facelift and it is a worth a visit. If you sign up to the Crabtree & Evelyn and the VIP BirkenHead Point newsletters, you will receive their emails with these specials. This is the 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Noel Candle $59.95 and the 3 Fragranced votives$54.95. These candles will create a beautiful fragrance in your home at Christmas.
