2008 Holiday Guide: Necessary Indulgence

Soap and Candles

    There are some things in your home that do double duty as both a beauty essential and home necessity. Candles and soap are two of these things. Scent and sight are important senses, which is why it is important to stock your house with these little luxuries.

    Guests will be pleasantly surprised when they walk into your front hallway or bathroom and are greeted with a beautiful fragrance.

                    I have officially converted. I made the transition from liquid body washes to luscious bar soaps. It seems people stopped using bars as much after the explosion of Bath and Body Works stores opened all over the country. I will have to try these soaps; they look and sound fantastic. So far, I have only tried those at this website I visited while shopping for Christmas presents.

                    This will surely be my next stop!
