PRETEND SWEETNESS FOR THE SENSES

Happy December to Everyone,

Today's post is quite sweet and tender. Recently, I have developed a love for make-believe foods. With this I mean, such as delicious smelling gingerbread candles. I purchased myself a gingerbread candle at Walmart. I am quite sensitive and picky when it comes to scented candles, however, this one is extremely delicious. I am also  loving my "fake" doughnuts sitting on my kitchen counter. They are so cute and a perfect eye-candy. As the holidays are approaching, temptations are everywhere. I find myself ordering minted peppermint lattes and creme brule coffees more and more.

For my #OOTD I am wearing a Gap sweater (thrifted), Bearpaw boots, Gap jeans and my favourite Kate Spade bracelet.

One little thing I have learned over the years is to involve all of the senses while eating a meal. Certain foods such as cookies and doughnuts CAN be enjoyed either while ONLY using ones sense of smell (such as a candle) or sight (such as pretty "fakes").
 Let me know if you have any "fake" food favourites, What do you think of pretend foods?
TEMPTATIONS, TEMPTATIONS, TEMPTATIONS!!!
The smell of this gingerbread scented candle is perfect for the holiday season. 



  Gingerbread scented candle from Walmart and 'fake' doughnuts that I found at my local dollar store.

The perfect and guilt-free eye-candy for ANYTIME!!


Holiday tip: enjoying sweets with your sight and smell only every once in a while can help fight the cravings :) Temptations!! Chocolate, sugar glazed and sprinkled doughnuts.


OOTD: Gap sweater (thrifted) and Bearpaws!








Gap Jeans


A cozy outfit for cold, late-fall weather. 


I am wearing my Kate Spade bracelet

  3. If I had to look at doughnuts all day, I would rush out at 6 pm to go get some to actually devour!
