Yankee Candle Land

So this winter I went to the Yankee Candle Factory Store in Deerfield, Massachusetts. Let me tell you, it was an awesome experience for candle lovers! Since it was a factory store, it was insanely huge! They had a kitchen room, jewelry room, food room, Christmas room, kids room and many, many candle rooms! I went with my friend and neighbor, Meghan! We both had a superb time.

Here are some pictures of us around the store:

So the top two pictures are from the Christmas room! The left is me in front of one of the smaller Christmas trees and the right is a picture of the big tree with ornaments placed all around it for purchase. The bottom left has the back of my friend Meghan in it and a picture of the entrance to the castle room! I thought it was more like a man cave shopping room! Interestingly, the picture on the bottom right is of my dipping different wax ornaments into colored wax. It was very cool and unusual! They also had a station where you can make your own candles!

Here are the candles I purchased from the large factory store:

This was actually the candle I made! They have a station called Wax Works where you can add different wax scents into an empty glass jar. I decided to go with a bunch of holiday scents! So the green part is Christmas tree and bellow that I added a lot of other flavors and on the bottom, I had cranberry! As you can probably tell, I did light this candle for a few days after Christmas! It is a really cool thing to do and put on your bucket list if you love candles!

So I got 5 different, unusual 3.7 oz. candles. I wanted to get scents that I would not usually pick up!

  • Banana Bread
  • Sunflower
  • Cranberry Chutney
  • Harvest
  • Whoopee Pie – which is on right now and smells absolutely great! I love chocolate, so it is perfect!

The larger size to the left is in Orange Dreamsicle. I have not yet tried this candle!

Overall, the experience I got from Yankee Candle Village and Yankee Candle Factory Store was phenomenal! I had a great time! I highly suggest this day trip for anyone in the Northeast region.

Vineyard Vines Holiday Catalog Overview

Hello all! I am posting tons today, I know! Since I have not been posting a lot lately I decided that many posts are in order to catch up and please everyone! For this post, I want to kind of look at one of my favorite “prep” stores catalog, Vineyard Vines.

Here is the cover:

As you can tell, this is definitely a holiday catalog from the beach sitting Santa Claus! I really like the Vineyard Vines catalog covers because they are simple. They always have the logo in the top center, a large picture and a navy bar with an explanation of the catalog.

Here are the women and men gift pages:

These pages are very crowded! But they do the job. The purpose of these is to show all the products in a fast, simple way. For the women’s page, I have only purchased the whale boy hair tie but I love the sweaters this company makes! I cannot wait to splurge and purchase one! For the men’s page, I have not tried any of it (I bet y’all could have guessed that!). But I have purchased the green pull over for my boyfriend last year and he loves it!

Overall, Vineyard Vines has a great catalog that they come out with every few months to showcase their products. If you have never heard of this company they are based in the Northeast and make many different styles of clothes! Mainly preppy, comfy and nautical!
