The Comforts of Home
There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort ~ Jane Austen
There is no place I’d rather be. My home is my oasis. Last year, I purchased my first home and I’ve been working hard on making it a space that is truly mine. It may not be a mansion or a huge fancy house, but it’s comfortable and familiar. Most importantly, it’s mine. I’m proud of how much work we’ve put into it so far.
I work out of my home so I spend lots of time here. When I’m not working, I keep busy with my favourite activities and hobbies. I like to start my day with a hot cup of coffee and reading the latest news on my tablet.
Another passion of mine is creating new recipes. My family loves to be my taste testers. Lately, I’ve been making cookie cups with different types of fillings.
I enjoy sitting at my kitchen table near the window overlooking my yard and having a sweet treat. This Caramel Cookie Cup was incredible!
I think scent plays a huge role in creating a comfortable home. That’s one of the reasons I use Air Wick® Life Scents™ – the first constantly changing fragrance. I love that each Life Scents™ fragrance has three distinct fragrances that work together to make my home smell fabulous. Because the fragrances are constantly changing, I never get “nose blind” where I get so used to a scent that I no longer can smell it. Instead, my senses are always delighted.
In my kitchen, I have Air Wick® Life Scents™ Mom’s Baking fragrance. The delicious aroma of caramelized pears, buttery pie crust and vanilla wafts gently in the air. I think that scent fits the room perfectly with the amount of baking I do!
My living room is where I like to relax and unwind after a long day. My couch is super comfy and is one of the nicest items I own! In fact, when I was looking at houses, I had to find one that fit my couch. If the living room was too small, it was off the list. In this room, I have Air Wick® Life Scents™ Summer Delights fragrance that transforms the space into my own personal summer garden. I love the fresh fruity scents of cantaloupe, white flowers and vanilla ice cream.
I always end my day with a good book as I settle in my cozy bed. Reading relaxes me and helps me fall asleep. I read until my eyelids feel heavy and then fall asleep almost immediately. I have Air Wick® Life Scents™ Turquoise Oasis fragrance in my bedroom so when I close my eyes I can imagine myself at my own personal seaside retreat. I find it so tranquil and soothing!
The Air Wick® Life Scents™ fragrances are a new way to experience scent. Using technology, the Life Scents fragrances mimic the true experience of the real world. Like I mentioned, you really do feel like you are in a seaside oasis or in your mom’s kitchen after a day of baking.
Another exciting perk of this technology is how long the fragrance lasts. With the three distinct fragrance accords constantly changing, your nose will never get used to the scent and tune it out.
Air Wick® Life Scents™ are available in four fragrances: Mom’s Baking, Summer Delights, Turquoise Oasis and Sweet Lavender Days. I encourage you to try them in your home and experience the difference.
