CRUELTY FREE BEAUTY & LIFESTYLE | FRIDAY FAVORITES

Happy Friday!  Can you believe we only have a couple more weeks (and some change) until Christmas?  This month is flying by, per the usual, so I'm really trying to soak it all up until Christmas arrives.

I wanted to share a few Friday Favorites of mine that I recently came across.  I hope you enjoy!

Wind Blown Jewelry Horizon Necklace

I found out about this jewelry company through one of my favorite YouTube channels.  I saw this necklace in their online shop, and I knew it would be the perfect addition to my jewelry collection.  A few months ago, I culled my entire jewelry collection.  In fact, it could probably be purged again.  I want to have only my favorite pieces in my collection, and this Horizon Necklace is here to stay.

Paddywax Candles - Library Collection

Through my searches for cruelty free beauty and home products, I came across the Paddywax Candle brand.  I had never heard of them, nor had I smelled them, so I was really taking a chance with an online order  I ordered a couple small tins, one large candle, and a wick trimmer.  Side note: I didn't even know that wick trimmers were a thing!  I've been using my kitchen scissors all along.  A wick trimmer is essential to candle burning, and I am so glad I have one now.

From my purchases, my favorite scent has been from their Library Collection.  They have this amazing curated collection of scents inspired by authors.  Being the Austen fan that I am, I purchased the large size of the Jane Austen scent.  It did not go into it blindly, I did check the notes to make sure it was something I could like.

Basically, it's a blend of gardenia, tuberose, and jasmine.  Those are some of my absolutely favorite scents (I'm a floral lover through and through).   Specifically, the top notes are citrus zest, sparkling adlehydes, and coconut water.  The middle notes are white gardenia, jasmine petals, and pink peony.  The base notes are rosewood, sheer spices, and leafy greens.  The main scents that I smell are the floral notes.

Nest Passiflora

Last, but certainly not least, I wanted to share my favorite perfume lately.  I am a huge fan of the Nest brand.  They have a lot of beautiful scents in their collection.  I have almost all of their rollerballs.  I can only think of one off the top of my head that I don't like.  This one is Passiflora, and it's been my scent of a choice for the past month or so.  It's gotten to where if I forget to apply it, I miss smelling it throughout the day.  The notes in this scent are passion flower, water hyacinth, and lily of the valley with an overdose of lush green notes.  As you all are fully aware by  now, I love floral scents so this has been, and will continue to be, a major favorite of mine.

So friends, what do you think of these Friday Favorites? Any you're planning on getting? Let me know in the comments below!
