Candles and other indulgences...

All photos from Victoria Magazine

I sincerely hope all of you are having a much better day than I am. When days like today strike, I rely on some old favorites to get me through. Little indulgences like steaming cups of tea from one of my favorite teacups, soft music or ocean waves on the iPod and candles everywhere - both for their aromatherapy benefits and the beautiful glow.
There's something about being surrounded by burning candles, even in the daylight, that just makes me feel better. I'm sending these virtual candles out with good wishes for all and a little prayer that my little bits of beauty get me through today.


  1. Bonjour Bella,
    Candlelight does make everything better - including a few little wrinkles I've been noticing lately...:) Here's to a wonderful new day.

  2. I love lighting candles, they make everything prettier! lol

    Hope your day got better! :D

  3. I love candles too.. something about the flickers and often the smell brings back a pleasant memory
    Hope things improved.

  4. Darling sorry your day wasn't as you planned. However, I have to say your choice to reverse it is excellent. Home with music, tea and candles, what else can a girl ask for, oh may be some macaroons to go with the tea...just a thought. Lovely post.

    Love & Hugs

  5. I'm sorry to hear you are having a bad day :-( I hope things turn around soon for you. I love candles as well!

  6. I'm really sorry you are having a bad day. I hope it turns around for you. Candlelight will definitely help.


  7. You're so right to comfort yourself when things aren't going so well. specially at the moment, feels like half the planet is having bad days far too frequently. So once you've sipped your tea, relaxed with your candles and read these kind comments, just give yourself a pat on the back for having created such a beautiful and peaceful blog - your blog may have been a scented candle in someone else's day today!

  8. I hope your day was okay for you. Your little spots of beauty certainly brighten my day.

    I am just back to work this week. It had been so long since I felt like visiting, and I really missed everyone.
