In the Mood for...


For the past two weeks, I have been enjoying candlelight baths, well showers if you will since we don't have a tub in the main bathroom. The ceiling light in our bathroom has gone haywire and despite replacing the light with a new one, the light refuses to switch on. B even tried using a new starter for the light but we think it's the wiring.

Like I mentioned in one of my previous posts, the wiring for our home lighting seems faulty everywhere. And more than once, I've been shocked by light bulbs unexpectedly exploding when I switch off the lights in my office or in the living-room. Smileys

We seriously need to get somebody to look into our faulty wiring and we will, sooner or later. And when the time comes, I'd really like to replace our ceiling light with this elegant vanity wall fixture light. I just love simple classic designs don't you?
This fixture has 3 lights and takes 3-100 Watt Medium Base light bulbs and is available at should you too be interested. Offering the lowest prices online, this huge lighting store brings to you over 300 different manufacturers selling over half a million lighting products. There's a massive Black Friday SALE for today only, so hurry over! ihikhik

Initially, I was of course angry at the thought of having to grope around in the dark when the bathroom light went out. The incident happened on a Sunday and no contractor or lighting store would send over someone to have it fixed. So I opted for candles to light up my bathroom and now, I am truly, madly and deeply hooked on my scented candles! In fact, I just told B there's really no hurry to fix the bathroom light for my baths have never felt this good or relaxing now that I'm using scented candles instead of a proper light. Now why didn't I start this sensual ritual sooner?

I just bought a whole new bunch of scented candles and I can't wait to try them out. I have orange, vanilla, lemon, green tea, lavender and yummy apple candles and I'm planning to use them all! See you guys later! Smileys

WOW . . . That's amazing, I just bought almost the exact same light fixture with two lights (three lights were too wide) at Home Depot a couple of days ago and just took it out of my car ten minutes ago. I was just holding it up to see how it will look then decided to procrastinate, have a coffee and put it up later.

here's mine

I'll have to send you a picture of it installed . . . when I get around to it, I'm pretty busy right now procrastinating over installing the new faucet

Good luck on yours.

Rose Belle,  November 28, 2009 10:30 AM

Scented candles are very addictive. I also like tealight candles introduced to me by a London friend. I think candles bring inner peace and of course the sweet scent makes it the more better. Have you done at Black Friday shopping? I tried some online shopping but didn't find much to my liking.

Rosidah Abidin,  November 28, 2009 11:44 AM

That sounds very relaxing! I hope you had a wonderful Eidil Adha, Marzie :)

Grandy,  November 28, 2009 12:32 PM

I get that you're going to burn them all. But might I suggest that you don't burn them all at the same time? All those scents could give you quite the headache. ;)

ayie,  November 28, 2009 1:51 PM
