Hi.

My name is Kaylie! I started blogging over four years ago with the intention to show women that style comes in all shapes and sizes! After taking a trip to India last year, I re-branded The Sweltering Sweater into an ethical fashion blog. I want my readers to feel good about the clothes they're wearing, as well as where they came from! 

The Beauty of Hope

The Beauty of Hope

I have a confession to make: I love being busy. 

Sitting down and taking things slow seems like a waste of time for me. I thrive off of the ability to jump from one event to the next or load up my schedule (You should see my September calendar...), but every once in a while I burn out and am forced to take a quiet moment at home with no plans. . 

One of the biggest challenges for me, in terms of relaxing, is creating an environment where my very creative mind isn't going one million miles per hour. I need something that helps me focus and makes me feel calm and cozy, whether it be a warm blanket or sweater, a cup of tea or a relaxing scent to fill my home.

When I do take the time, I find that my quiet times are more powerful, I'm more passionate about what I'm writing in my blogs and I'm in an overall better mood in the end.

Lately, I've been using Beauty of Hope candles as my go-to for all things cozy this fall. With a new collection of scents: Harvest (Pumpkin, Nutmeg and Vanilla), Spiced (Ginger, Saffron and Geranium) and Crisp (Neroli, Sandalwood and Apple) you are sure to find a scent that fits your mood this season.

Here's what you support when you purchase a Beauty of Hope candle:
- 10 percent of your purchase goes to non-profits with a mission for ending human trafficking or sex trafficking victims
- A clean burning candle, for you and the environment: They use soy wax and cotton wicks, which are both biodegradable. The soy wax also burns cooler and lasts longer and is a renewable resource that supports US farmers.
