ITEM OF THE DAY: THE LIBRARY COLLECTION BY PADDYWAX CANDLES

by Kathryn and Amanda

Candles, books and inspiring quotes. These are a few of my favorite things.

Blend them all together and you get: The Library Collection by Paddywax Candles.

Packaged in book cloth covered boxes, the wonderfully scented candles are made out of soy wax (which burns cleaner than regular paraffin candles), hand poured and made in the USA. In my book, candles and reading arealways in style.

The Collection:

Leo TolstoyBlack Plum, Persimmon, & Oakmoss ”All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.”

Jane AustenGardenia, Tuberose, & Jasmine “There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.”

Emily DickinsonLavender & Cassis “Dogs are better than human beings because they know but do not tell.”

Oscar WildeCedarwood, Thyme, & Basil ”Anyone who lives within their means, suffers from a lack of imagination.”

Charles DickensTangerine, Juniper, & Clove ”I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all year.”

Edgar Allan PoeCardamom, Absinthe, & Sandalwood ”All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”

Mark TwainTobacco Flower & Vanilla “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.”

ITEM OF THE DAY: PHILOSOPHIE SUPERFOOD POWDERS

by Kathryn and Amanda

( Recently posted on HelloGiggles )

Here at YFB, we love a great blend. These delicious, organic, vegan blend of superfood powders are something I feel guilty keeping all to myself!

Bullet Points about the Blends:

  •  Sophie Jaffe, certified Raw Food Nutritionist and Raw Food Chef, created her Philosophie superfood powders out of the necessity for a convenient and healthy way to get an anti-oxident packed superfood fix.
  • The recipe on the back of the package- YUM. Sophie provides other recipies on her site, but after months of using her powders, I have yet to get tired of the classic smoothie recipe. Below are the powders’ ingredients- some might sound foreign, but trust the classic recipe which results in a creamy coconutty vanilla flavor (or chocolately for the cacao magic).
  • Cacao Magic includes Chinese medicinal mushrooms- reishi, cordyceps, chaga, maca, cacao powder & nibs, chia seeds, tocos and fresh vanilla.
  • Green Dream includes spirulina, fresh vanilla pod, raw vegan sprouted protein powder (hemp), maca (balances mood, high in iron and protein), tocos (vit.E), chia seeds, mesquite and chlorella.
  • The smoothies fill me up and leave a natural energy boost- they’re my favorite mid-morning/day snack that I whip up in my magic bullet (On a budget, the contents of the smoothie are more important to me than the blender).

So there you have it. Easy to make and so gosh darn good for you; it’s a win-win situation.
