Day 6: Colonial Candles – 12 Days of Bijou Giveaway

Happy December 6th and 6th and day of the 12 Days of Bijou Giveaway!

I can’t believe it’s already the 6th. Seems like yesterday it was just Thanksgiving and we were all on break and there were no finals or assignments due.

Can you tell I’m kind of stressed out today? I have a big 50 page research paper and IMC plan to present today in class and I spent all last night with a massive headache.

I’ve never experienced anything this annoying – at least not since that spinal headache I had during the summer. What made it 10x worse was the fact I knew I was behind on this paper due. All I had was an outline and now I’m spending the rest of my day filling in the little bits and pieces left.

So…how am I powering through this day? By using these amazing prizes of course (I just had to get my own to try them out!)





For not just one winner but TWO!

Yes, two winners for today’s giveaway prize. I teamed up with Colonial Candles to gift 2 winners 3 candles each.

Keep reading to find out how you can enter.

There are three candles included in this giveaway. Here are the scents…

  • Cranberry Spice
  • Holiday Sparkle
  • Winter Woods

When I got my candles I was immediately drawn to Winter Woods (the green candle) because it smells like Christmas trees! And we just got our fresh tree so adding in some more woody scents was perfect. I love the ways these candles glow too.

Colonial Candles has always been a very reliable brand for holiday scents. They’re aromatic, festive, and just out right beautiful. I mean – look at those candle holders! I love the pattern on these as it’s not in just a traditional jar and it doesn’t have a logo plastered all over it.

It’s beautiful – just like what you smell. Beauty and cheer.

  • What do you do when you want to pack light but like a lot of outfit changes? 🤔👗 Why, still pack all the outfits, of course! 😀
Ok, i know, unrealistic, right? But it is possible! On my last trip I packed a whole weeks worth of outfits in a carry on - new outfit each day too. It was such a great success that I decided to write about what packing tips have helped me the most. And please, none of that "get this new suitcase" stuff 😂 Any old suitcase will do!

  • My photographer thinks that this particular pose reminded them of pictures of vintage hollywood stars. Also calls this the “Princess Margaret” because it’s a pose she did that we took inspo from. What do you think?
Being timeless is not just about what you wear, it’s an attitude 💄🕶
In middle school & high school I wore berets, trench coats, and loved everything vintage. I was the odd one out. But now I embrace a really timeless wardrobe. It’s classic, simple, but still glamorous.
Click the link in my bio to learn how to look timeless in just 5 easy steps. And no, you don’t have to wear only vintage. I am proudly a modern vintage blogger and everyday clothes can still be timeless!
Let me know what you think of the post!
The dress I’m wearing here was from @modcloth - several years ago (but it still fits like a charm). The camera, however, is not reproduction. Authentic vintage circa 1930s/40s.
  • I'm all for accessories that look expensive but are in fact, such a steal. This beautiful purse for example? $24! Don’t you just love things that look expensive but aren’t?
Looked gorgeous for the rosé terrace event. I was surrounded by luxury handbags and all I could think was "oh my goodness, this purse looks even better"
If you're looking for the perfect blush or straw purse, this one is it! Click the link in my bio to shop, or watch my stories! You can also shop my daily looks by following me on the app #liketkit
  • There's a rule for the Printer's Row Lit Fest: If it doesn't rain at least one day of the Lit Fest, it's not a proper Lit Fest! And rain means good luck.
And what luck I've had meeting my new friends at @thecoopersouthbank - a new residential property opening up near the Chicago River's south branch! I just checked out their tent, learned about their amazing property (it's gonna have many amenities & things to do), and of course, checked out some books! #thecoopersouthbank #ad
Stop by their tent: JJ and check out all the wonderful books for sale, learn about their artistic roots in Chicago, and grab a tote so you can pile dozens of books into - believe me, you'll need it!
How many books do you think I'll buy today? 10? 20? Who knows....
  • The world looks better through rosé colored glasses 🕶 Happy #nationalroséday 🥂
Spent the loveliest afternoon at the Roses & Rosé Garden Rooftop party at @thegwenchicago - If you’re local (or just visiting) make sure to check out this hotel! It was the perfect Rosé party with delicious foods all made with Rosé!
It’s beautiful. The words I would use to describe it is simply luxurious. The interiors are sophisticated but subtle with deep colors & metallic accents. The rooftop was spacious yet very cozy. I secretly wanted to take home the chair I was sitting in! 😂 Don’t think I would have gotten too far.
I had so much fun dressing up for this event. I wanted to show you my lace dress but I ended up taking this close up instead 📸 My lace dress is linked in my bio & if you watch my stories, you can see my whole look!

  • Probably looking at pictures of cats 🐈
But when I'm not looking at cats, I'm working 📸. Eternally grateful I can use my iPhone to take quality photos for myself and my clients. I say this all the time and i'll say it again: you do NOT need an expensive DSLR to take pretty pictures for your blog or business. Practice, hone in on an editing style, and play around with light. The more you practice, the better you'll get.
Phone accessories like tripods, and ring lights can help. But you really only need one thing - a case! Sometimes when I'm trying to take the perfect flatlay shot, I drop my phone 😱 Thankfully, I have a strong and beautiful case to protect it 🙏🏻
The case pictured here is a Hailee x iDeal Case @idealofsweden in Striped Rose (how very vintage and Bijou!). Right now, my readers can get 20% off this case with code: HAILEEXUS

What's your #1 phone photography tip??
