Hello everyone! Welcome to Jade's Two Scents - it's my every-week Jackpot Candles vlog where I talk about anything that's on my mind... Usually related to the best scented candles; skin-soothing bath bombs; and how to self-care like a boss! Thanks so much for joining me :)
It's a rainy day here in Buffalo... I love a rainy day.Thunderstorms... Lightning... Ugh, I LOVE it. Stormy weather has a way of putting you in different moods. On one hand, rainy days make me super motivated! I'm zipping around, getting stuff done around the house, feeling active. On the other hand, sometimes rainy days make you want to bundle up - snug as a bug in a rug. Those are my cozy days.
I'm BOTH of these people, depending on the day... So let's talk about the things I like to do when it's a little bit blustery outside:
Rainy Day Ideas:
Active Mood:Clean! And I don't just mean your regular cleaning routine... Do something a little out of the ordinary - something that's been on your to-do list for a while. Organize your closet, and with each item, ask yourself "does this make me happy?" If it doesn't - donate it!
Same goes for that junk drawer that's starting to overflow! You can make amazing drawer organizers with cardboard boxes... We're all getting tons and tons of Amazon boxes these days, amirite?!
Coziness:Find yourself a comfy old flannel. Get yourself a familiar movie (for me it's Harry Potter) or something new you've been dying to watch. Bundle yourself up with your favorite blanket, find your comfiest spot in the house, and lounge around. You've definitely earned it! The crown jewel of a rainy day... The comfy, cozy candle scent. Everyone knows your day spent cleaning isn't done until you light the candle at the end. If you're bundled up, a warm, familiar scent can be that perfect bit of aromatherapy to put you in that rainy-day state of relaxation.
Let's talk a bit more in depth about some of my favorite cozy candles! First is the Caramel Latte candle - if y'all know me, you know I love fancy coffee drinks. Green tea matcha lattes (ahem... ALSO one of our candles), macchiatos... Our Caramel Latte scent brings that comfy cozy early-morning coffee treat to your entire home. Same goes for our decadent Cinnamon Chai candle... This one is surprisingly fragrant and feels more like a spicy fall treat that could be enjoyed any time of year... And real quick - for days that aren't gloomy and rainy, we've got a BRAND NEW monthly club to introduce. This month's candle is Siren's Song - a beachy, citrusy trip to a seaside paradise, coupled with a shell-shaped bath bomb. Every. Single. ONE of these candles and bath bombs comes with an amazing jewelry surprise... Including a limited edition necklace this month made with Swarovski Crystals!
We would LOVE to see your cozy day set ups! Which Jackpot Candles candle do you opt for when there's a thunderstorm outside? What candles are your go-to rainy day scents? What's your favorite candle to light after you get done cleaning? Are you more of a "fizzy bath bomb soak in the tub" kind of rainy day person? We want to know! The next time there's a rainy day in your neck of the woods, make sure you take a picture of your Jackpot Candles set up and send it to us on Instagram... We'll feature ALL your cozy photos if they give us that rainy day sort of inspo!
