BKD Signature - my favourite candle maker!

Today I'd like to share with you a favourite indie shop of mine, BKD Signature. I was first introduced to this store a few months ago; I believe I found her through a Sampler Village link on Facebook. BKD Signature makes pendants and amazingly scented soy candles. On her facebook page, she was having a fundraising sale for a cat she recently rescued, and since I have two cats of my own (that are rescues), I donated to the fund and received two candles - Peanut Butter Cookie and Birthday Cake. I literally could not get enough of these scents - Peanut Butter Cookie smelled exactly like the name and inspired me to bake those cookies one afternoon; Birthday Cake smelled like creamy vanilla cake, fresh from the oven, with sprinkles on top!

I love burning scented candles while I'm working on my thesis proposal, so I light one everyday as I work (it makes the process just a little bit better ;)

These were so great, I stocked up on four more scents (there are so many it made it difficult to finally settle on just four)- Black Raspberry Vanilla, Sweet Pumpkin Spice, Birthday Cake (it's my favourite!) and Crème Brulee. Yummy! I'm burning Black Raspberry Vanilla as I write this; it's a lovely summer scent.

BKD Signature also makes pendants; she recently gifted both Rachael Ray and Kaley Cuoco some of her pendants as well. I purchased one of the limited-edition heart-shaped glass tile pendants with Asian Chiyogami paper; it actually arrived on my birthday (June 29) so it was a nice treat to myself!

well with my birthday outfit!)

Right now, she is having a huge sale to celebrate the opening of her Craft Cafe Shop. 4 oz soy candles, which are normally $7, are on sale for $4.50. I might get a couple more at that price!


  1. Awww, I love the dress! It looks great on you! I love candles too, so thank you for letting us know about a great seller!

    1. Thanks! I got it a few years ago on a trip to England; it's a great little summer dress. For the candles, I love to switch between the scents - one day birthday cake, the next, peanut butter cookie, etc. Baked goods are my favourites for some reason.

  2. Wow, love that dress..looks fantastic on you! The purse rocks too! :)

    Thanks for the info about the candles! :)

    1. Thanks for the compliments! I so love the 'waves' on the purse and the light beige colour makes it great for summer wear.

  3. Those sound like fantastic scents! I love that necklace to.. you looked stunning in that dress!!
