As we put our Halloween costumes back in storage and October comes to a screeching halt, we want to introduce a new monthly series we will be doing! In order to give you a better understanding of our designers, every month House Of’s blog will featuring one of our designers sold in store, and give followers some insight into their stories.
Meet the figure behind Nella Moon’s candles, Arielle Ricci. A Mississippi native, she now lives in Nashville with her husband Chris and pups, named Bear and Sadie. Her professional story began at Mississippi State University as she studied Human Sciences with an emphasis in Apparel, Textiles and Merchandising. She moved back to Nashville after two summers of interning in New York with Ralph Lauren, and now teaches yoga, (she has a YUP yoga certification as well as being a World Paddle Association Class I Instructor). As her Wordpress states, her mission is to "assist you in cultivating your path to empowerment, well-being and self-love. Her love for candles and creativity led to her latest venture of soulful, artisan candle making."
These candles are made of 100% all natural soy wax and carry an impressive sixty hour burn time.
Her products are sold in various locations in Nashville including House Of, Hot Yoga Plus, The Lotus Room, Fahrenheit Yoga, Local Honey, Form Fitness and Fork's Drum Closet.
You may pick up "joy", "pumpkin souffle", "archer stone", "cedarwood + vanilla", and "namaste" at House Of. Other scents include "moon beams", "mississippi cotton", "mermaid kiss", "happy trails" and "nag champa" in eight ounce authentic mason jars.
