In the digital age, staying connected is vital. Your phone is not just a communication device; it's your map, your guidebook, and your source of entertainment during long flights or quiet evenings. From capturing stunning sunsets to navigating unfamiliar streets, your phone is a trusty travel companion always.

Let me say from experience, having the right shampoo while away on holiday makes such a difference. Plus, you don't have to worry about carrying travel size shampoo in your carry on, this is where a solid shampoo bar comes into play.

Introducing Our Newest Soy Candle, Hotel Lobby

Is the jet setting lifestyle on hold for you this year? Well, I know the feeling as I am getting prepped for a new summer season here in Louisbourg the likelihood of me going on holiday are slim and that is part of what inspired our newest soy candle, Hotel Lobby.

Hotel Lobby will be launching soon and if you'd like first dibs, reserve yours here: Preorder HOTEL LOBBY. Hotel Lobby was inspired by the life of a Jetsetter, getting out to these beautiful resorts and hotels and that moment when you walk in, suitcase in hand, generally you'll take in an uplifting, inviting, fruity and earthy fragrance. Mmmm, the smell of vacation and all things warm and tropical.

We knew that a candle that encapsulated that feeling was a must and we can't wait to introduce you all to Hotel Lobby. A candle that will whisk you away to your favourite destination, without leaving the comfort of your own home.

Wherever your winter wanderlust takes you, I hope it is filled with warmth, joy, and the soothing glow of your favorite comforts. Safe travels friends!
