Cindy's Favorite Things - July 2023

Hey there, fellow candle enthusiasts! It's Cindy, the proud owner of Candle Studio 1422, and I'm excited to share my very first monthly list of favorite things. July 2023 was a fantastic month filled with incredible discoveries and delightful experiences. Without further ado, here are my top 5 favorite things for this month:

1. Pinch of Yum Food Blog 

As someone who absolutely loves trying out new recipes, Pinch of Yum has become one of my ultimate go-to food blogs. I actually did not discover it in July, I just wanted to share it with you as it is one of my favorites! With its diverse collection of culinary inspiration, I've had a blast exploring a variety of dishes. But one recipe that has completely stolen my heart is the irresistible Korean BBQ Burrito. This twist on a burrito is amazing. Trust me, I've made it countless times, and it never fails to amaze my taste buds! Check out Pinch of Yum.

2. The Naked Olive - Unforgettable Dining Experience

When it comes to dining out, my family and I have found a gem in The Naked Olive. This local restaurant has become our absolute favorite, and it's easy to see why. From the moment we step inside, the warm and inviting atmosphere puts us at ease. And the food? Oh, the food is simply out of this world! Our must-try dish is the Fried Brussel Sprouts with Leeks, Bacon, and Beer Cheese. The flavors dance on my palate, creating a culinary symphony that I can't resist. There is also an area for your next bridal shower or party. Check out The Naked Olive.


3. CupKate's Bakery - Sweet Treats and Charming Ambiance

Supporting local businesses and young entrepreneurs is close to my heart, and CupKate's Bakery is a true testament to why. This delightful bakery, opened in Greenville, DE, by a talented young entrepreneur, has become a favorite spot for my daughter and me. The moment we step inside, we're greeted by the irresistible aroma of freshly baked goodies. Our top pick? Any treats adorned with buttercreme frosting. Each bite feels like a heavenly hug, and the cozy ambiance of the bakery makes it all the more special. The bakery also offers cute branded merchandise. You can't go wrong with CupKate's!

4. Mel Robbins Podcast - Real Motivation with a Dash of Humor

As a small business owner, staying motivated is key to success, and Mel Robbins' podcast has been a winner for me. Her direct and honest approach, combined with a sprinkle of humor, keeps me engaged and inspired. Her valuable insights and advice are real and relatable, making her my go-to source for that extra push. If you don't mind a few swear words, this podcast will give you the dose of motivation you need to conquer your goals, and maybe a little laugh. 

5. CapCut - Your Affordable Social Media Video Tool

Running a small business like Candle Studio 1422 means I'm always on the lookout for affordable and effective tools. Enter CapCut, my recent discovery for social media video content. This user-friendly tool has made creating captivating content a breeze. With its array of templates, I can now easily produce eye-catching videos to engage with my wonderful audience on social media platforms. It's been a game-changer for my social media planning.

So there you have it, candle lovers! July 2023 was a month of exciting finds, revisits and delightful experiences. From mouthwatering recipes to charming local businesses and empowering resources, I hope my top 5 favorites inspire you to explore and support these gems.
