to the Izola collection are these charming candles. The wax, which is hand poured into recycled colored glass, is a natural blend made from renewable sources grown in the USA. The candles come in an assortment of scents like green moss, clary sage, lavender, rosemary, sandalwood and jasmine that are the perfect mix of masculine and feminine. As we’ve mentioned before, Izola is a great resource for unique home essentials and other fun goods, like these cheeky flasks.

Though her heart still lies in New York, she has been in Amsterdam since 2008 and is Business and Marketing Director at Twenty8Twelve.

In addition to friends, travel and work; she’s very into sports, her team is the Georgetown Hoyas and is pretty much unavailable during March Madness.  Oh, Inky’s also a big fan of food and is always in search of the best, most authentic. From food to style, this worldly lady (she’s already lived in 4 continents)  has some real good stuff to share. SO CLICK HERE TO KEEP ON READING!
