Happy Easter

Easter Candles

Spring is coming fast and the weather has been beautiful these past couple days, which reminded me to plant the bulbs I bought recently. I can’t wait for the iris, lilies, and freesias to start and come up and give some life to my dead garden. I hear the birds chirping and just being in the garden listening to the birds, and smelling the flowers is the only time when I feel fully get relaxed. 

These days many of us are getting ready to celebrate Easter. The festive atmosphere will reunite us in different ways, either making the eggs or going to church or eating that special meal that only your mom knows how to cook on this day. Greg and I are celebrating by making candles. The 100% essential oils that I am using for all of them are floral such as Lilac, Violet Lime so your place will smell wonderfully the same as outside. 

Here are some of the candles that will have the chance to buy on my website Oohlalapetite.com


Celebrating Love

The deep voice of Chavela Vargas in background, the latte in my hand after drinking my super morning healthy juice, which is part of my daily routine for almost 16 years now; this is how my Sundays morning starts. When I start taking photos, I don't take a shower because if I did, I feel I would wash away the creativity that has accumulated during the night.  

I usually do not celebrate Valentines Day but I took these pictures to celebrate the love of the past and the now and the love of the one I want to have near me. The love for the one that I never get bored or tired of; angry sometimes, but always with the desire to be closer, tease each other, talk to each other. The need to love more than love, to thank you for being next to me, to look at your eyes and to tell you how much I adore you my Buci.

Striving for a peaceful, healthy and happy New Year

Today I was thinking about 2015, the year that is about to leave us and I can easily say that it was a good one. I can't say that it was the most successful one but it was a decent one. Success it is not always measured with money, it is often measured with the goals that one wants to achieve. One of our goals was to go back to Spain to meet my brother and my friends and Greg also wanted to see Barcelona. It is a very unique city for its architecture thanks to one of the greatest architecture, Gaudi, and it may one day be the city where Greg and I will live. We had a great time with everyone in Barcelona.

During Christmas, I really miss my mom and I wish I had her here. I am looking forward to the day where I will show her the city, the places I visit here and enjoy the most, walking the High Line or finding ourselves sitting somewhere in Central park. Although I did not have my mom this year, my very close friends, one that lives in Canada and the other one that lives in Albania came to NYC. We reunited after almost 15 years and it was interesting to see that in some ways we haven't changed at all and yet we are so different in others ways. Seeing them was refreshing and re-energizing.

Although not all of our goals this year have been fulfilled yet, we are still grateful that we have a wonderful family and friends supporting us on whatever we decide to do. We are very thankful that we enjoy what we do and hopefully you will also appreciate our creative and unique candles.

Recently I was working on this candle which is one of my favorite pieces because the colors of the flowers are so vivid and it reminds me each time I see it that life should be vivid, full of colors and turn that negativity into something positive. 

On that note, stay tuned for our announcements in social media or in our blog for our upcoming events. The next one will be on the weekend of February 6-7th, 2016 @Artist and Fleas in Williamsburg.  More details to follow soon.

Here are some photos from yesterday, I hope you enjoy them. With that, I would like to wish you a healthy, peaceful and Happy New Year.

Lots of Love,

Eni and Greg

Happy Easter

This year we decided to spend Easter in an amazing city, Barcelona. I find Barcelona to be a happy city all year around with great weather and food, the best combination for vacation. Each time I come here I am amazed of the architecture, which is all very unique to this place, ads to the whole experience. As I have mentioned previously on my blog, this is the first trip for Greg to Barcelona and he can’t stop capturing the best of this city with his vintage cameras. We love it and hope one day we will be able to stay longer so we can fully appreciate everything Barcelona has to offer.

Since Easter is all about celebration, and joy we thought it will be fun to paint  these  eggs with Annie Sloan Chalk paint. 

Enjoy this Easter Sunday and follow us for more stories from our trip to Spain. I will add more candles poured in vintage porcelain eggs on my site soon so stay tuned.
