Shop ’til You Drop

December 3, 2015

One of my fondest memories from long ago is of my daughter and I shopping together and hearing her sweet little voice saying “shop- we DROP!” She would say this over and over again from her car seat just to hear me laugh.

It’s not the most original title but it is the one time of year where some of us actually do this. My favorite way to shop is ONLINE.  In my P.J.s with coffee.


Okay with cookies too!

I love supporting small businesses and try to purchase from them first before hitting up the chains.  Today I would like to introduce to you a wonderful Etsy shop called


owned by Brandie Embry. Brandie’s shop specializes in high-end, hand-poured, all natural and eco-friendly soy-scented candles made with pure essential oil fragrance.  All candles are 100% eco-friendly, soy and have cotton core lead-free wicks.

All candles are artful, multi-faceted fragrance blends that Brandie crafts in small batches.  She pours each one into vintage, reusable containers. My melt came in a gorgeous vintage class cloche (see above photo).

I love that all her containers can be reused to add vintage charm to your decor long after your candle has burned.

Milkjugperfumecandle is also passionate about being eco-friendly.

Brandie not only sells candles, she sells soy melts which she makes and hand pours herself (her melts are my personal favorite) and includes pretty spoons for scooping.  She makes perfume decals that are stunning.

Brandie has an amazing Christmas collection in her shop as well.


MilkJugPerfumeCandle can be special ordered for bridal parties, wedding favors, and make the BEST Holiday gifts!

Each order comes beautifully gift wrapped, ready to sneak under the tree.
