New Orleans Makeup Artist Love Yankee Candles During The Christmas Holidays At Her Connecticut Home


It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…well smell like Christmas, I should say. During the year I love to buy candles from Yankee Candles and for the Christmas holiday I really enjoy my home to smell like a Christmas tree. My favorite Yankee Candle this season is “Balsam & Cedar” candle and it’s a 22oz in size.

The fragrances are Balsam, aromatic cedar wood and juniper berry blend together in a fresh forest scent. And the fragrance notes are; Top: Crisp Citrus, Herbs, Red Berry
Mid: Pine Balsam, Cedar, Sandalwood
Base: Vanilla, Warm Amber, Musk
Top note is the initial impression of the fragrance, middle note is the main body of the scent and base is its final impression.  This candle will give you about (110-150 hours burn time) which is about 14-19 days of amazing aroma in the your home. This is why I love buying Yankee Candles because I feel like I get a lot of days and normally candles don’t last that long.


As you know I lost the sense of smell due to my Lupus. But I recently got it back so I went ham at their store and treated myself to some goodies. I love candles its definitely a treat for the house. Like on non holidays I pick candles that represent my mood and energy.

How about you do you love Yankee Candles and do you have a favorite candle from Yankee Candles that you like?

How Do You Spend Your Christmas Eve

Being that my family is from Honduras we celebrated on Christmas Eve. But as I got older I changed it up just a little. So tonight we will eat, drink a lot and open a small gift.

Then on Christmas morning I get up bake cranberry muffins, serve champagne and we open the majority of the gifts. Later I’ll put dinner on but nothing to big, drink, eat dessert and watch 2 movies.

What are you doing for Christmas Eve?
