Old Factory Candles review + giveaway!

stack of candles

I've been on the prowl for a new candle brand to funnel my money into ever since learning Bath and Bodyworks had it's cruelty free status revoked, so I was super excited when Old Factory Candles offered to send me over one of their signature sets to review. Each set is $25 and includes three 2 oz. candles that all pertain to a theme. They're made in the US from natural ingredients which is always a plus.

 I decided to be festive and go with the "Winter Wonderland" pack which includes the scents "Hot Cocoa," "Roasted Chestnut," and "First Snow." My favorite was "Hot Cocoa," which is pretty self explanatory scent-wise. It also happened to be the most fragrant of the three and left my entire apartment smelling like chocolate. "First Snow" was my second favorite and smells like a peppermint forest. It was also super fragrant and made my apartment smell amazing. "Roasted Chestnut" was sort of a dud, however. It smells really nice but just wasn't as strong as the other two. Maybe I just got a bad one, but I could only smell it when I was sitting at my desk and 2 feet away from the candle itself. They're estimated to burn for 20 hours, which I found to be accurate. "Roasted Chestnuts" lasted for 19.5 hours. Overall I really enjoyed the set as a whole and think they would make a great gift for someone who is difficult to buy for. They have a ton of different theme packs so there's definitely something for everyone.

ootd // frilly dresses


thrifted (?) army jacket
dress c/o Chi Chi London

I think I've found my Christmas dress thanks to Chi Chi! Seriously loving the burgundy chiffon with the gold beaded bodice. The cut out on the front is also just divine.

ootd // pearl sweater


floppy hat c/o Romwe
pearl embellished sweater c/o Poppy Lux (Sugarhill Boutique)
vintage teddy bear necklace and belt
H&M skater skirt

I wish fall wasn't a one month season in Montana so I could get away with wearing this sweater without a jacket.

ootd // perfect moto jacket


faux leather moto jacket c/o Oasap
American Apparel circle skirt
boots c/o Skechers

I have literally been trying to thrift a good, classic moto jacket for years. The only ones I ever find are usually over $100 (for a used jacket?? I don't think so.) or have fringe. I will now be giving up on that search since this one that Oasap so kindly sent me over is filling that void. The detachable faux shearling collar is probably my favorite part of it. It's also faux leather which is great since I've been trying to transition into more of a vegan lifestyle. I've been eating mostly vegan for almost a month now with the except of the occasional cheese pizza since it's way too hard to just go cold turkey! I really can't find a good cheese substitute, but on the bright side I've found a ton of amazing ice cream substitutes.

peplum top c/o Oasap
vintage camel coat (similar) and boots
Forever 21 jeans
crystal necklace c/o Coco & Marie
glasses c/o Firmoo

It is stupidly cold outside if you can't already tell by the thrilled look on my face. And it has already snowed. At least I can revel in the fact that this will be my last Montana winter for a long time. I'm not entirely sure where I'll be headed off to yet, but it will definitely be a place with little to no snow and a winter that doesn't last six months.

Fall Outfit Inspiration with Anjolee

I feel like my fall wardrobe has been pretty bleh lately, soooo it's back to the drawing board. I've come up with three different outfit inspiration sets for three different occasions that I wanted to share with you guys. Most of these outfits are based around going out to eat, because let's be honest, why else would you want to leave the house? Each set features a gorgeous piece of jewelry from Anjolee, a luxury jewelry etailer that specializes in diamond earrings, wedding rings, gemstone bracelets and more!  Which set is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!

ootd // school girl goth


floppy hat and pleather shoulder blouse (similar) c/o Romwe
Herkimer diamond necklace c/o Coco & Marie
vintage pleated skirt (similar) and moon belt
Deandri Harriet creepers

The older I get, the less desire I have to reach for a pair of ridiculous heels from my ridiculous heel collection for my daily outfits. I guess I've just finally realized how much time I waste hobbling around in giant shoes. It's so weird to look back on my older posts from a few years ago and see how drastically my style has changed. I've definitely become more of a dress-for-comfort kind of girl.

I decided to wear my wooden creepers to offset the overall seriousness this outfit exudes. They're perfect for adding a bit of quirkiness since I feel like they kiiiinda look like bowling shoes, but in the best way possible if that makes sense. I decided on this dainty necklace from Coco & Marie since the pleather on the blouse is a bit of a statement already, but it still needed that extra something. I love how the tiny Herkimer diamond is jagged and raw, but still super elegant on the dainty gold filled chain.
