AERIN Candles

INTRODUCING NEW
AERIN CANDLE COLLECTION
Evcurlgurl.com


Candles are the way to my heart and can most certainly be found in every corner of my home in different scents, shapes, styles and sizes - perfect for setting ambiance (or the mood!) Well here is some great news: the global luxury lifestyle brand AERIN, just expanded its home decorative accessories line with a five-piece candle collection (available online now at www.AERIN.com). Each candle retails for $80 and is packaged in a beautiful watercolor decorative box – the perfect gift that you don’t even have to wrap!

Designed to evoke a feeling of international escape through home fragrance, the collection is inspired by founder Aerin Lauder’s favorite global destinations including Mustique, Southern France, Rome, Aspen, and St. Moritz.

Let's take a look at the lovely lineup in the AERIN Candle Collection: 

L’ Ansecoy Orange Blossom - inspired by the turquoise waters, white sands and laid-back vibe of Mustique – the perfect place to unwind in the Caribbean. The L'Ansecoy Orange blossom scented candle evokes the fragrant Flora that lines the island's beaches featuring notes of sun-kissed Orange Blossom and sweet Cedar enhanced by the greens and citrus of Petitgrain.

Uzés Tuberose – inspired by the medieval town of Uzés in Southern France, known for its breathtaking architecture, beautiful hidden gardens, and a picturesque town square. A visit to the area inspired the Uzés Tuberose scented candle, infused with an alluring blend of Tuberose enhanced with fruity Apricot, and a warming hint of Spicy Clove.

Caffarella Vine – inspired by the sprawling valley of beautiful green pastures, woodland, and meadows of Parco Della Caffarella in Rome. The Caffarella Vine scented candle captures this pastoral scene with crisp Green Ivy, blended with alluring Waterlily and hints of woody musk.

Buckhorn Amber – inspired by Aspen, Colorado. The Buckhorn Amber scented candle is an ode to the Buckhorn Ski Run on Aspen Mountain. The aroma of rich, woody Amber layered with Sandalwood lifted with a luminous floral note of Orchid pays homage to the beautiful vista that overlooks the mountain range.


Corviglia Spice – inspired by the unspoiled alpine landscape of Corviglia, overlooking the European resort of St. Moritz. Corviglia Spice transports you to Switzerland with warming Pink Pepper, velvety Rose, and the rich woody depths of Patchouli and Cedar.

Each candle retails for $80 and can be purchased directly from www.AERIN.com

Dove #LoveYourHair

INTRODUCING: DOVE 
#LOVEYOURHAIR CAMPAIGN
Evcurlgurl.com

Last week, Dove launched their #LoveYourHair campaing, a new mission to broaden the definition of beautiful hair by celebrating all hair [types, textures, styles, colors] and inspiring real women to do the same.

View the film: 



The campaign challenges the fact that women are consistently faced with a narrow depiction of what ‘beautiful hair’ is supposed to look like – below and linked here are the actual search results for beautiful hair. 

This homogenous depiction, on top of the rules and norms women are bombarded with (you shouldn’t have long hair past a certain age, curly hair isn’t professional, short hair isn’t feminine, Asian women shouldn’t have blonde hair, etc.) cause them to internalize a lot of pressure when it comes to their hair. In fact,86% of US women believe that media and society put a lot of pressure on women to have hair that looks a certain way.
