Fall Scents

I think we can all agree that having a seasonal candle lit just completes the cozy feel of fall in the home.  Now that the weather is cooling down, and we finally have our fall/halloween decorations out, there's almost nothing that makes us happier than coming home and lighting our favorite candle scent. 

Our cute friend Dayna from The Gilded Wick sells some of the most delicious smelling candles on her Etsy shop. She recently sent us three of her amazing candles, and we all agreed that our favorite scent was her Vanilla Pumpkin (the three of us were honestly fighting over who got to keep that one - it smelled so good we wanted to eat it! haha). Scroll to the bottom of this post for a coupon code for 10% off!


The Gilded Wick has a line that uses only pure essential oils which is great for aromatherapy and the coconut soy wax, when melted, can be rubbed into your hands for an amazing moisturizer! To give you a little bit more info, here's what makes these candles so amazing:

- They are HAND poured with love in Southern California
- Scented with high quality Phthalate-free fragrance oils and the REFINED line is scented with high quality 100% essential oils.
- Eco-friendly, organic coconut soy wax. 
- All natural, wooden wicks made with American wood.
- All product and packaging is grown and made in the U.S.A. and the essential oils are sourced from around the world.

Here are some yummy fall flavors from her pure essential oils line:
Sweet Orange 
& Cinnamon
Sweet, citrusy, and spicy

Her other 4 holiday scents are not made with essential oils but include Frankincense and Myrrh:
Laurel Cranberry
Vanilla Pumpkin (our fav!)
Frasier Fir.

WHAT IS COCONUT SOY WAX?
Coconut Soy wax is a blend of all natural organic coconut wax, soy wax, and other natural vegetable waxes. This wax burns cooler than other natural waxes, lending to longer burn times and a greater scent throw.

IS THE WAX WASHABLE?
Coconut soy wax is extremely easy to clean up using hot, soapy water if there is ever a spill. When you are finished using your candle you can reuse the glass for cocktails or whatever you may like! The wick should easily pop off of the bottom of the glass and the wax can be washed right down the sink!


These candles would make such cute Christmas gifts, or use the smaller candles in tin containers for stocking stuffers (yes, we are already thinking ahead to Christmas ;))

Morning Power Smoothie

Hey guys! Paige here…just wanted to give you all a little "bump-date" and share a new favorite recipe! 

SO by week 24 of my pregnancy I had already gained 33 pounds and was really starting to stress out (average weight gain for most pregnancies is 25-35 pounds, and I still had over 3 months to go)! I was constantly hungry and my eating was pretty out of control, so I decided to turn to my own personal fitness guru/sister Sidney! I wanted help getting on a nutrition plan that would help get my weight under control, but also make sure I was getting all of the nutrients I need during pregnancy. She helped me come up with one and did not disappoint! 

Last week was my first week on the plan, and I actually LOST 3 pounds. Woohoo! I'm constantly eating HEALTHY foods so I never feel hungry, and I have much more energy throughout the day. 

My favorite thing on the plan is my morning smoothie! It's SO good and I crave it as soon as I wake up :) I'll be sharing more of my new eating plan soon, but today I want to share the recipe for this amazing smoothie that's so healthy and yummy!


What MAKES this smoothie is this amazing protein powder. It's SO good and only has 50 calories, AND 100 milligrams of caffeine :) It'll definitely wake ya up in the morning, and I love it! Click on the linked picture below to purchase.


The recipe also calls for flax and chia seeds (both optional). Below is the brand I use :)

When making this smoothie, I use a large handful of frozen spinach and kale. I buy the brand below at the grocery store, and just stick it in the freezer!

Below is the recipe. It makes enough for two and I make it for my husband and myself every morning. If you're making for one, cut everything in half!

Morning Power Smoothie:

1 Banana
1 handful frozen spinach
1 handful frozen kale
1 Spoonful Flax Seeds
1 Spoonful Chia Seeds
1 Spoonful Almond Butter
2 Cups Frozen Blueberries
2 Cups Almond Milk (I use unsweetened vanilla)

Fall Tunics

Hi! Regan here :) This past weekend was spent up in the gorgeous mountains of Park City, Utah watching LDS Conference (one of my favorite weekends of the year!).  It was so pretty up there with all the fall colors!  Paige, Sidney, and I spent Saturday and Sunday up there with our hubby's (and Sidney's boyfriend).  On Sunday morning we made a yummy breakfast, and just lounged in our PJ's while watching #LDSConf. 

When I tried this tunic on at Anthropologie, I knew it would be a staple for this fall! It's really comfortable and the material is so soft! I've already worn it like five times, haha. Oh, and these Karen Walker sunglasses! We've been getting all of our designer sunglasses lately through Ditto!  Instead of dropping $100-$200 on one pair of sunnies (or prescription eyewear!), rent your favorite pair, then switch them out for new ones anytime you want!  Sign up today using code 'SALTYBLONDES' and try it out for one month FREE!  They are always updating their website with the latest brands and styles and we just can't get enough!
