Home is In the Air
Owning my business and working from home all week can be more draining then one would think. I am blessed to work from home, I strive to keep my work office separate from our living spaces at home. That way, after a long work day or long work week, I can unwind and unplug from work.
One of my most favorite places to relax is in the den, I have my reading chair right next to the fireplace and while the girls watch their programs, I can relax and read a book from my long reading list or I can throw on some secure wireless earphones and listen to some tunes while I do a little online browsing and shopping.
Home is Where the Heart Is
Not only is it where the heart is but, it truly is the centre of our lives. It’s where we are most comfortable and whenever we may roam, it’s a place we long to come back to.
So, while my office is just steps away from one of my favourite places in the house, I can close the door and walk into an oasis of my own making.
A place where I can escape the stressors of work life.
Breathe It In
Scent is one of the most incredible senses we have.
Simply because when we smell in a scent, it can take us back to moments in time that are pleasant, nostalgic or remind you loved ones or memories that you will never forget.
Airwick® Life Scents™ are the perfect examples of how scent can improve your everyday life.
They are the first constantly changing fragrance because unlike ordinary home fragrances, each Life Scents™ fragrance contains three distinct fragrance accords that are sequentially detectable.
Each note can be experienced on their own but, complement one another completely.
My Own Private Oasis
Even though I share my personal oasis with my family, there are times when I can completely enjoy it on my own. With that said, I love keeping the den smelling wonderful.
I do so by having an Air Wick® in Turquoise Oasis on medium plugged in at all times.
Life Scents™ fragrances feature a technology that helps to experience fragrance in a whole, new and real way, that mimics the true experience of the real world.
Whenever I walk to my office in the morning I am greeted by the smell of Air Wick® Life Scents™, it reminds me of the hard-earned unwinding I have waiting for me at the end of the day.
When I have the Summer Delights plugged in and it takes me away to every single quiet moment I’ve experienced when I vacation.
Whether it is 5, 000 feet above sea level in the mountains of Costa Rica, book in hand and lounging in a rocking chair and watching the cloud forests float on by or if it is lying on the beach just taking in the salty air.
With one inhaled breath, I am taken back to a great memory in my life but, I am happy to be sitting in my favorite place in our home.
A place where no matter how amazing a destination can be, that I long to come home to. It simply cannot be replaced!
The constantly changing fragrance technology enables one to experience the fragrances much longer versus the ordinary fragrances, which one gets used to after a short while.
This means that not only will the fragrance remain but, the moment it invokes will last!
Enjoy the aroma of caramelized pears with a hint of spice. Baked inside a crumbly, buttery pie crust topped with cool vanilla cream. The fragrance creates a sense of coziness. It inspires warm childhood memories at home.
Use this scent to transform your home into a garden. Fruity, floral combination of fresh cantaloupe slices, white flowers, and vanilla ice cream.
Turn your home into a seaside retreat as a warm breeze carrying salty sea spray washes over you, bringing with it the invigorating aroma of weathered driftwood.
Sweet Lavender Days:
Let the intoxicating aroma of endless lavender fields, layered with dewy summer berries and warm sugar cane, create a sense of comfort, freshness and relaxation in your home.
Invite Us In
You’ve seen where I love to unwind in my reading chair. I always have stacks of books nearby. I have my e-reader around if I want to read a book digitally.
Our homes are where we spend a lot of our lives in and where we make lifetime memories. It is where we grow as individuals and grow as a family too.

So, no matter how you choose to relax and enjoy it, it is up to you.
Whether you relax by running a warm bath or scrapbook. Maybe you curl up in your favorite reading spot like me, I can’t wait to see all of your spaces!
How do you unwind at home?
Let me know, til then–cheers m’deres!
