Beach Scented Candle by Yankee Candle

I love the smell of Hawaiian Tropic. If they were to make a perfume that smelled like Hawaiian Tropic I would buy it! When I look for a beach scented candle for my home I always look for one that smells like sun tan lotion. Beach Party by Yankee Candle is the closest scent I can find and I love it!

Decorating with Beach Sand

Collections - Beach House 101 - Photos - MyHomeIdeas.com

I love to go to the beach and bring back souvenirs. I was looking through my favorite magazine, Coastal Living and saw a great idea.
Every time you go to a different beach I collect sand from it. I will usually have a water bottle with me and when it is empty I will put some sand in it. Then I will buy a cheap clear glass jar from Michaels or any craft store and place the sand in the bottle. Then I use my label maker and label the bottle with the date and what beach I was at.
With all of the bottles of sand lined up together it looks great. You can see different colors of sand, different textures and different sizes of grains. Some beaches are pure white sand and some have broken shells in the sand. It personalizes the decor in your home and makes for good conversation when guests are over.
I only wish I had seen this idea sooner because I missed out on bringing back sand from a few different islands that I have been to.
