For Those Who Choose Light

There are few things as magical as candlelight in a dark winter’s evening. Being able to take a moment and almost ceremoniously end your day feels like a very gentle and quiet act of self-care. And being able to share that moment and intention is something very special indeed. So we’re big fans of Syreeta Challinger whose beautiful brand Moments Of Sense & Style (@momentsofsenseandstyle) celebrates the precious moments in life. You can find out more about her story in the Kindred Conversation with Founder Anna earlier this year. Our top pick is the Sydney in Springtime Candle a mixture of zest, salt, amber and moss, perfect for lighting the way in those quiet moments of calm.
