Meg here! Yesterday afternoon the wind started to blow so fiercely that the furniture on my roof top deck slammed around like it was going to come in through the ceiling. Thump, thump, bang! Every 20 minutes or so the lights would flicker and blink but the power managed to hold on. I hopped in the shower at 4:40pm and had to do an interview at 5pm -I just towel dried my hair. I wanted to be ready for my questions (the interview was over twitter-I know, what happened to the good ole phone? I’m @megsmakeup by the way.)
I managed to get to question 8 when God had other plans. Whoosh and Bam! The power was gone the internet was gone and there I was, with plans to go out at 6:30. My hair was still damp, my face was still fresh, I wasn’t sure if I had two different tones of black on. I would be, quite literally-getting dressed in the dark.
With the help of Megken I was able to throw myself together enough to make it into the car and use the 2×4 light up mirror to save what I could.
Surely by the time I made it home at 11pm the power would be fixed and I could go about my energy burning ways… No such luck.
Stumbling in (no not too much alcohol this time-it was pitch black!) I scrambled for a light and began collecting candles from around the house. Most of the candles were little tea-lights in holders so I put them all along my table. Then I remembered I had a Klean Thai Lemongrass Kandle!
I had been dying to try this so there was no better time then sitting in near darkness! Megken and I had a little bonfire going on the coffee table providing the light but the Klean Thai Lemongrass Kandle provided the scent. It is a fresh, clean and tangy aroma. It is not your run of the mill scent and it pleases guys just as much as you ladies (no tuberose grandma memories with this item.)
Klean Kandles live up to their name. They use all natural soy wax with eco-friendly wicks. We had the candle lit for hours and we barely made a dent. For you travelers this is a great item or a great gift for someone always on the road. The candles come housed in a nice round tin with a twist lid so no breakage for romantic hotel rendezvous.
While having no power is a bit of a bummer, life is made a lot simpler without the phone, the lights and yes, twitter. Starting to relax and burning my delicious Klean Kandle I thought “this isn’t that bad.” It even made me a little sad when finally, after hours, I heard my hairdryer go on in the bathroom. The power was back!
I blew out all of the other candles but my Klean one stayed lit!
Who else loves Klean and their fabulous Klean Kandles?
