shopping local with callia flowers and charleston and harlow candles

Last week I picked up a few pieces from some local businesses, that I have wanted to try for quite some time.

First off is Callia flowers, I spotted them on Instagram a few months back and was waiting for the perfect moment to use a promo code they sent me. It was my moms birthday and I had the "bright beauty" bouquet delivered. The whole experience was fantastic. Their website is very easy to use and the bouquet was delivered beautifully packaged. The box is absolutely huge if the person you are sending them to takes a bus home from work keep that is mind, lol.

It is now almost a week later and the flowers are still alive!
They offer $10 off your first bouquet with the promo code sharethelove10
I highly recommend them as a new way to send beautiful flowers here within Winnipeg.

I also came across Charleston and Harlow via Instagram. I really like that their candles come in a square glass votive and that it is double wicked on the full sized version. They are also very decor friendly with a simple yet gorgeous gold label.

I am also absolutely in love with their scent offering. They have a candle called mid century mod, MID CENTURY MOD based on the notes I will need to smell that one in person but I can't wait to be in the same place with the whole range.

I blindly ordered mad for plaid off their website while they were having a flash sale and couldn't be happier with my choice. Featuring warm woodsy notes of cedar, ash, and fir, with soft undertones of pear, lily of the valley, and rose. This candle is the perfect mix of floral and wood it sometimes smells like mens cologne but that is a-okay by me.

If you live in Winnipeg, what local brands have you been loving lately?
