8 Best Modern Incense Burners

A lot of people have strong opinions on the Incense vs. Candles front, but the lack of modern incense burners isn’t doing ‘Team Incense’ any favors.  It just so happens that collecting candles can quickly become an exuberant habit, so I like to buy incense as an alternative way to change the atmosphere of a room.  I also find that the aroma of incense lingers long after it stops burning, as opposed to

Happy Birthday ElleKae

Statistics say that most blogs are abandoned within the first 120 days; assuming that to be true I suppose I’ve just reached an important milestone.  On August 16, 2014 I decided to translate my love for sharing the things that inspired me and made me happy into a lifestyle blog, and I launched ElleKae.  To say that I didn’t really know what I was doing would be an understatement, so to see

Spring Cleaning Simplified

Spring Cleaning always sounds like a great idea… until you’re knee deep two-piece sets and regretting possibly every purchase you’ve ever made, if just because they led to this moment.  If done correctly, however, Spring Cleaning can be a way to rediscover forgotten favorites and reevaluate your style while making room in your closet for future purchases.  In anticipation of my upcoming move, and in honor of Spring Cleaning, I
