Fornasetti Launches Star Lina Candle

Fornasetti Star Lina candle, 300g size available at Olivela

I’ve been a long time Fornasetti admirer. That signature face, the black and white with a pop of red lips always caught my eye. The brand launched their latest candle as part of the Fornasetti Star Lina collection (300g size, $215). The range of candles are available on Olivela.com with 20% off all proceeds going to Save the Children.

Bearing the enigmatic face of Piero Fornasettie’s muse Lina Cavalieri, She was an internationally recognized artist who lived at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, who was known as ‘the most beautiful woman in the world.’ While Piero never met Lina, he considered her face the quintessential image of classical beauty and her face has since become a signature Fornasetti centerpiece.

Wake me up before I go go

Being a blogger and always juggling a hectic schedule, there are two thing I rely on more than anything, especially to wake up, it’s COFFEE and music! This magical caffeinated drink is a morning (and afternoon) must-have and if I could have it hand-delivered to my bed everyday I would. But I found the next best thing!

Mr.Coffee 4-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker – My boyfriend ordered this off Amazon for $27 and it’s like the greatest thing to ever happen to me. You can program it to brew coffee at a certain time so when my alarm goes off, so does my coffee! You can also just kit the button and make it instantly but the timer feature has taken the coffee machine from my kitchen to my night stand. There are more sophisticated versions I linked to above, but minus being a little loud when it brews — which really doesn’t bother me since I’m trying to wake up anyways, it’s changed my life. And I’m a dark roast Lavazza girl, Intenso and Perfetto are my jam. I love a dark roast but don’t like to feel shaky or anxious and it’s perfect. There are a lot of great coffee brands out there but this is one I always find myself going back to. I used to be an ambassador for them and it’s just one of those brands I always go back to. While I’m geeking out on coffee, I also recently discovered TFees Straws.  True coffee and tea addict know that staining, enamel erosion, and discoloration are only a few of the issues that can arise from our beloved beverages. TFees’ patented heat safe & completely BPA, BPS & estrogenic-free reusable drinking straws, that come in three convenient sizes help to protect teeth without having to worry about harmful toxins or chemicals. Plus they can be cleaned by simply throwing them in the dishwasher.

Who’s on top of their holiday shopping? Here are some of my personal picks of gifts I’ve gotten (mostly for myself) and loved!

1. Royal Apothic Conservatory Collection Candle in scent English Rose ($26) – this candle is lie a little piece of heaven. It’s a soy-blend wax and burns for 60 hours. It’s larger then it looks in the picture (5″h, 3″ square) and is gorgeous from package to scent. It’s like walking through a rose garden, the scent is superb.

2.  Sarah H. Reynolds Original Frame Notecards & Envelopes ($22/set of 10) – I love sending cards and this versatile set includes two of each print of five original charcoal frame drawings and ten envelopes by NY based artist, Sarah Reyholds. Leave your love note, thank you, or even your own drawing or picture inside one of these beautifully drawn frame (or use stamps!) and send. I like that they are artsy and give you a foundation to customize the card and they work for number of different occasions so they are handy to have around.

3. International Sanctuary Beautiful Green Necklace ($40) – As seen in my video campaign with SpaFinder (and regularly in photos on my instagram page, I wear this necklace all the time. This website (and necklace) are amazing. iSanctuary works to help victims of human trafficking reintegrate by employing survivors.  Their mission to end human trafficking through
