You know that saying, "Like mother, like daughter?" Well, there's a reason it's so widely used. Many of us recall thinking at a young age, I'm never going to be like my mother when I grow up. And yet, here we are, reflections of the very person we thought didn't understand what we were going through—only to realize later on in life that they went through it, too. And what's more wild is that we morph into our mothers as life goes on, who our teenage versions swore never to be like. READ MORE »

A few weeks ago, we made a big stink about why you should replace all of your lower kitchen cabinets with drawers. (See: Why You Should Replace All of Your Kitchen Cabinets with Drawers .)

Everything You Thought You Knew About Burning Candles Is Wrong

I consider myself something of a candle connoisseur. I've smelled a ton over the years and lit plenty, from Diptyque to Yankee and everything in between. Tapers, votives, you name it—there's some kind of candle in practically every room of my home. But I've never given much thought to my burning technique, that is, until a recent trip to Nashville, Tennessee. Turns out the country music capital also knows a thing or two about getting (candles) lit. Paddywax , a candle manufacturer that makes a bunch of cute styles you've probably seen at stores like Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie , is headquartered down in Nashville, and their employees hand-pour about 10,000 candles a day in their factory. That's a lot of wax, people! They've also recently opened two retail locations of The Candle Bar , a boutique-meets-workshop concept where, after choosing a vessel and scent, you can pour your own custom candle. Maybe it's not as legendary as the Opry, but The Candle Bar is a cool place to visit should you find yourself in town. While sipping on BYOB rosé and hanging with friends, I took their candle-making class and got schooled on all things candle burning by store manager Kelly Heyen. I've never met anyone who knew more about candles. Turns out you're probably lighting yours (and doing a whole bunch of other things) wrong. I was. So if you want to get the most burn for your buck, read on for the common mistakes Heyen sees over and over. READ MORE »
