posie x pampa candle collaboration

Im loving the candle created by Posie and Pampa both based in Byron bay

The candle called PAZ meaning ‘Peace’ in Spanish blends cleansing Eucalyptus and earthy Palo Santo, a link between the native elements of Australia and Argentina to reflect the origins of Victoria and Carl the founders of Pampa

Posie

I love discovering and sharing cool local makers, today I share with you Posie

A collective love of travel, design and the simple things inspired Posie co-founders Ashleigh Sampson and Casie Brooker to curate a soulful collection of candle blends, that smell really good! – each reminiscent of the people, places and paths they’ve crossed along their journey.

Posie candles are designed, assembled and hand-poured in their Byron Bay studio using 100% soy wax, natural fragrance and essential oils in a range of reusable vessels. Making blends locally ensures each piece reflects Posie’s core beliefs in keeping trade; fair, cruelty free and sustainable for the environment.

Byron Bay hangs with Miss Sarah Glover

What happens when Miss Sarah Glover and I are both in Paradise aka Byron Bay? Of course she cooks up an epic meal ( lamb on the BBQ) and I fix us some drinks thanks to Brookies Gin (yum)

About last Friday, so Sarah happened to be in town for her Wild cook book launch, and I’m also be in town this week – of course this called for a cook up and a photo shoot!

In true Sarah style she pulls it all together with ease and thanks to our friends at Nikau store ( for the beautiful table ware)

Of course we are at The Atlantic Byron Bay
