Yankee Candles Autumn 2014

The new Autumn fragrances are here and this year Yankee Candles is going with fresh outdoorsy scents and rich desserts.

Ginger Dusk ~ originally part of the Indian Summer collection, its island breeze filled with tangy sharp spices and sweet citrus fruits.

Cranberry Pear ~ Absolutely sweet and ripe, bursting with vibrancy. Smells like my old strawberry shortcake toys. 

Silver Birch ~ Smells like autumn outdoors when it is snowing. The crispness of dried leaves and dryness in the air.

Bay Leaf Wreath ~ I didn't get a sample but this candle was burning in the store, its almost like silver birch but really green and leafy.

Supermarket Contests Tip #8

Write out the full name of the items purchased and highlight the necessary information on the receipt. This way, you can see the details at a glance. Sometimes the item descriptions aren't clear especially when it is a long receipt. An extra step to take, it lessens your chances of disqualification!

Louis Vuitton A/W 2014/2015 Fashion

Nicolas Ghesquiere's first collection for LVMH, is decidedly retro re-mixed.

It's got that 70s classic hipster feel, redone with colour blocking and sexier modern silhouettes.

LV menswear this season is overrun with blue stripes. It's still classic menswear with coats, suits, sweaters. Just lots of warm, cozy fabrics used here.

Buffet Dinner @ Carousel

Dinner for 2 @ Carousel, Royal Plaza on Scotts courtesy of Paseo.

I've eaten at Carousel several times before and always found the service great (they change the plates really fast). Wonderful food with a selection wider than most hotel buffets.
