Namaste

Namaste!
So a few weeks ago i discovered an adorable shop called Evolution. The shop supplies a range of handmade candles, blankets, and the most adorable little Buddha statues amongst many other items that have been handcrafted in countries like Indonesia and Thailand. With the profits being distributed to projects that the brand supports, they bring benefits to the people that make their goods so i would most definitely say it was a worthwhile spend.
Anyway, i revisited it today to admire some of the beautiful handcrafted items and it gave me some lovely inspiration...
Although these images are from weheartit, the adorable elephant candles in the last image are sold in Evolution. I've always loved Balinese and Thai prints; they're so intricately created and the colours used are so mellowing. I would love to have a bedroom filled with scented candles, painted glass lanterns and sunset-reminiscent colours as shown above.
I had previously bought a beautiful string of hearts and an Oscar Wilde quote to add to my bedroom but today i purchased a candle with the scent of 'endless berries'. It's is divine. As i'm in such a calm mood i am dedicating the rest of this lazy Sunday to relaxing with my new candle and a book. Heaven.
