I try to invest in quality pieces and not use my lifelong approach of “Ooooh on sale!” But every now and then (every week) bargains pull me in. The remaining responsible adult I have in me dies a little, as does my bank account. We all know this shizz adds up! But it’s a habit I won’t be quitting anytime soon, so here’s a look at this week’s retail delight.
I found this bourbon(!!) candle while Christmas shopping at Marshall’s. Since it was a steal at $2.99, I bought two. I love the octagon shape, the wooden lid, and of course the label with its vintage illustrations. It has a hint of cinnamon, giving my room a cozy, wintery feeling. I think there’s other liquor scents, too! I’ll be on the hunt for those.
Every year we do a late Christmas exchange among our group of friends. This year’s theme was Game of Thrones. I like the idea of having a late Christmas party—you extend the holidays a bit and all the decorations are deeply discounted.
And, happy 2017! Sad the holidays are over but excited to start a new set of resolutions I won’t reach.
