Getting candles in the mail is a joy forever, for me yes it is. If you know me(or even not) send some flowers and candles and you know what…You dont need to ask me..I will love you more!!
Diana from ” Joyful Home” sent me some soy candles and I loved them all.
These soy candles are 100 % soy wax which is eco-friendly and free from harmful toxins. I never tried soy candles before and it is safe for everyone(Kids/Pets). I loved the smell and it works really well to absorb any strong cooking smell(desi cooking you know).
If you have a big space these candles especially “Muskoka S’Mores” and “Maple Syrup” are strong enough to fill the space up quickly with an aroma.
“Water Melon Slushie” and “Bubblegum” are Mild and soft /fruity smell, that lift your mood up. She sent me some small samples of wax melt and can’t wait to try them all.
These hand-poured candles are something you can buy for yourself or for your friend or can buy as a gift for your co-worker or even stock them up for holiday or eid gifts. You can use the discount code “JOY25” for 25% off on any purchase at joyfulhome on her Esty shop.
p.s: A giveaway is on its way💖!!
We are having extreme hot days and You won’t believe because of that we had to cancel our outdoor picnic and BBQ. Temperature is a bit extreme side when its winter one can’t even imagine about the heat warnings and vice-versa, but I have literally no complaints.
We had a couple of family gatherings over the long weekend, that ended up the last-minute(unplanned) trip to Harbourfront. A water taxi ride and boardwalk in nice cozy weather, it was a perfect end of a weekend.
I bought these Bali style earrings from the temporary vendor at Harbourfront. I love finding traditional stuff and every time I get an exciting piece from there. Go n check if you are in GTA.
I am a Chaat-Papri girl and love savoury over sugar. Do you like chocolate or finger chips extra hot?
I am rocking in my backyard chair and having some sunlight to get my vitamin D that we get here after ages…after 8 months…. Yes, summer is in full swing and so am I…love this Me-time while my kids at school. We are fasting almost 17 hours this year and pretty good this time.No complaint at all…just some lack of sleep issues.
May is always been busy for us to spend some time in our yard cleaning and gardening. My husband does all the major work, I only help him like a Chota ..lol..we went to local nursery on Victoria Monday and got some vegetables/fruit plants along with roses and other flowers for our back and front yards.
These fragrance sachets are Dollar Tree find, You can use it around the house especially under your wardrobe and closets or hang them in your washroom. I am using them and just love the fragrance they have.
This is one of the most missed Pakistani fruits after mangoes here. Falsay is tropical fruit and available for short period of time and you get once in awhile. Thanks to hubby, he bought a basket full of falsay from a local desi grocery shop. You may check your local grocery shop right now otherwise won’t get it after.
Last but not least, I got these Islamic bookmarks and paper lanterns along with zakat calculator in the mail from Islamic Relief Fund a week ago. Currently, they are accepting Sadqa and zakat funds online for Muslims in Syria and Palestine.

I got this Betty Crocker’s cookbook from Dollarama a few days ago, it is specifically written by cancer survivors for cancer patients. They shared their experiences throughout their recovery. They also shared tips to boost energy and spirit during illness and chemotherapy. How to recover and start routine along with some quick and healthy recipes with doctor’s Notes. There is some bonus section on Breast cancer. In short, it’s a complete book I have ever seen so far!
I bought this book to get to know how I can start a healthy lifestyle and also how to help if someone is fighting this battle. There is always a hope and support to defeat cancer( or any illness) is possible. Great book, I am thinking to share some quick tip from this book as soon as I finish it(comment if you want me asap). Please Pray for my friend who is fighting with cancer nowadays…please pray for her and for everyone!!
