If you’re newly engaged (or know someone who is), then you know how overwhelming the wedding planning process can be. Right from the get go, you’re dealing with everyone from jewelers, bridal consultants and wedding planners to photographers, lighting specialists, florists, bakers, tailors, dry cleaners, and the list goes on and on!

kristin***UPDATE: We have our winner – Kristin Wong! Kristin will be gifting this boxed set to her good friend who was recently engaged. We know she is going to thank you for these educational and entertaining cards–Congratulations, Kristin! ***

These are people and places many people have never worked with before, so when you factor in how much money many of these people are asking you to fork over for their services, (and the added pressure of wanting your wedding day to be perfect!) trying to understand what you’re signing up for can be confusing and downright terrifying.

David Brian Sanders is one of the most sought after interior designers in Los Angeles and nationwide, and I’m lucky to call him a friend.

A sampling of the serene and chic spaces David has created.

His fragrance candles come in four signature scents, two sizes and are ready to give in a beautiful white box, finished with a neat ribbon tied in a bow. In fact, they make the perfect gift for your host or hostess over the holidays (never come to a party empty handed!). I love David’s candles because they’re just like his interior designs, simple yet luxurious and never over-powering.


Enter today’s Friday Fav giveaway for a chance to *WIN* the candle pictured above by doing the following:

1) LIKE David on Facebook, HERE.

2) LIKE my fan page on Facebook, HERE or follow me on Twitter, HERE.

3) Leave a comment on THIS post about WHO you are planning on gifting this lovely candle to over the holidays (It can be yourself, if you’d like!).

Thanks for entering and good luck! Happy holidays!
