Smells like Christmas!

21 Dec

Happy Wednesday everyone 🙂 I hope you’re all having an amazing day filled with joy and laughter. I also hope your day is filled with beautiful scents -seriously. If you follow me on snapchat (jfilkosky1) you know that I’m obsessed with my wax warmer from Target. I always wish you guys could smell what I’m smelling. This wax warmer is EVERYTHING!!! It’s priced under $20 and is a super cute brass design. I love that it’s a plug-in that has a switch as well. So if it’s plugged in a hard to reach outlet, you can just switch it on and off easily instead of bending all the way down to unplug it. The thing I like most about this wax melter, though, is the fact that it has a huge light bulb to melt the wax. I feel like the scents are really amplified with the heat! The light bulb keeps the wax so hot that the scent is strong and I can’t get enough. A lot of warmers have a small votive candle that is somehow supposed to melt wax and scent your home. unfortunately I’ve never had luck with those.  I use my wax warmer year round, but especially during the cold months which is why I’m sharing it with you now. Also it would make a great gift for a loved one or even for a co-worker gift exchange.

My Favorite Everyday Nail Color!

12 Jul

I’ve found the perfect year round everyday nail color. It’s a pinkish clear hue by Essie called Sugar Daddy. I LOVE this color. It’s almost clear but very light pink at the same time. It basically goes with everything and makes your nails look super healthy. I’m on my 2nd bottle and I never go through nail polish that fast. I was explaining it to a friend as the perfect color for everyone, from the color enthusiasts to the non polish wearing. It compliments all skin tones as well. I recommend you pick a bottle up to add to your collection!

Aspen Trip!

11 Jan A7

Happy Monday everyone! I got such an overwhelming response to my Aspen pictures that I’m going to share some more here. It was the first trip to Aspen for my wife and I but definitely not our last. I feel like the way we planned it was perfect. We landed in Denver and rented a car and drove to Aspen, which is one of the most beautiful stretches of snow capped mountains I’ve ever seen. The drive took 3.5 hours but flew by as we got lost in all the scenery. Once we arrived in Aspen we stayed 4 days which is a nice amount of time to see the sights and partake in activities. I really loved ice skating but the ultimate bucket list check off was snowmobiling deep into the Aspen mountains for hours. We even saw moose!!!!! As usual, we ate our way through the town- Aspen is known for their strong culinary game and  were not let down once. Everything we ate was amazing! And as far as scenery goes, everywhere we looked was straight off of a post card. It was breathtaking to say the least.

I keep getting asked “Is aspen expensive?” Expensive would be an understatement! It is off the charts crazy expensive from the hotels, to activities, to shopping, to dining. When places are this astronomical in price, a once in a lifetime visit will usually suffice, but there was something so magical about Aspen that I will go back and overspend, because frankly, it was worth it! I suggest everybody visit this gem during the winter months!
