It’s been a month since I moved to NYC and I can honestly say I love every minute of it. What I love most about this city are the gems waiting to be discovered around every corner… that little coffee shop a street or so down, a charming bookstore a few minutes away… And every discovery calls for a rediscovery to fully take in the charm of each place. It was just one day out of the many days that reminded me why I love this city so much.
I spent the morning grabbing coffee at The Elk in West Village and afterwards headed to the Chelsea Flower Market. After picking up some fresh blooms, I took a stroll to the Housing Works bookstore in SoHo.
I ended the day decompressing by surrounding myself with heavenly scents, cuddling with Sammie, and getting lost in a book. I find that lighting candles help me de-stress and reset. There’s a sense of peace and calmness about it that helps put my mind at ease. I personally love clean earthy floral scents. Of the Henri Bendel candle collection, my favorites are Eucalyptus & Sea Salt, Lemon & Fig, and Vanilla & Sandalwood. Laced with notes of peach, rose, and vanilla, the Vanilla & Sandalwood candle evokes the smoky aromas of autumn mornings. Pairing citrusy bergamot and lemon with elements of Mediterranean fig, the Lemon & Fig candle strikes a balance between earthy and crisp accords. Capturing the essence of rolling waves, the Eucalyptus & Sea Salt candle perfectly balances the brightness of chilled orange and freshness of eucalyptus leaves.
I hope you enjoyed the photo story and styling. Happy Friday and thank you so much for reading! And special thanks to Henri Bendel for partnering on this post!Thank you so much for reading!
