Gift Guide for Her

I pride myself in being a very generous gift giver, especially during Christmas time when my room is littered with wrapping paper and ribbons which will aid me in wrapping two or three presents per person. Perhaps because I am a girl, deciding on gifts to give to women always comes easier for me than choosing what to give to men which is why I jumped at the chance of compiling a list to help you decide what to give to the special women in your life.

Cleaning Candle Holders

Cleaning candle holders is probably one of my least favorite things to do, but recently I’ve started collecting left over wax to use in other projects (a post for a much later day) and I was entrusted with a few extra candle holders to clean so what better use of chore than to make a blog post about how I get it done.

There are A LOT of ways to clean candles. This is just the way that I like doing it and I prefer to do things in batches anyways because I’m all about saving some time. 

-SUPPLIES-

  • candle holders that need cleaning
  • a large pot or bowl
  • a knife (or something you can poke wax out with)
  • paper towel/something to wipe the candle holders down with
  • hot water (I boiled my water in my tea kettle and poured it into my bowl)

-INSTRUCTIONS-

  1. Use a knife to cut slashes into the wax still in the candle holder
  2. Place candle holders in a large pot and pour hot water into candle holders and around them. Leave sitting for about 15 minutes.
  3. Leftover wax will either float to the top or be soft and cool enough to pull out with a knife
  4. You can either soak them in a fresh batch of warm water or you can wipe off the excess wax with a paper towel (I used the paper bags we save from last minute store runs)
  5. You can set aside the wax for a future project or toss it!

I feel embarrased to find the need to come to you for help about this but yesterday i've been called out by uni classmates because I said I identify myself as buddhist and they considered it cultural appropiation. Is there anything I can do about it?

This is a tricky question. Cultural appropriation is seen quite heavily in society nowadays. However, I don’t feel that if you’re a Buddhist because you identify with the ideals and genuinely want to use Buddha’s wisdom to practise a buddhist way of life, then that is cultural appropriation. 
From my research, I would say that those who practise Buddhism as a lifestyle and a a guide, not just for a trend and to be fashionable as some people do, then there is nothing wrong with it. 
I think in order for people to understand you are not culturally appropriating, explain to people how serious you are about Buddhism and how important it is to you - they cannot argue with that.

I’m sorry I can’t be more help, good luck!

Finished my first day of Bikini Body Guide pre-training! I’m so excited to change my lifestyle with kaylaitsines ’s guides and get my body to its happy place. After 7 years of eating disorders and a year of gaining 100 lbs in recovery, I am finally ready to treat my body right and give it the respect it deserves. I’m really proud of myself for finishing the whole day 1 workout, even though my legs were trembling the whole time 😅🙌🏻💪🏻
