ABOUT CANDID

About Me

_________________

Hey y'all! I'm Kiyana!! I just entered my dirty 30s!! I hail from Queens, Ny but I've lived the majority of my childhood in Bethlehem, PA. I have 1 son who's 9 and a ball of energy and handsomely looks just like his dad. I'm an ex-introvert that loves strengthening my relationship with God, Gospel music,  RnB, cooking, creating, wine (Stella is my fav btw) , connecting with people, sharing my story, writing and working out (though that's been a bit of a struggle to get into my schedule lately). I'm a bubbly, silly little lady that just wants to make as many people smile and laugh as I possibly can. I would say I have a welcoming soul so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and say HEY GIRL HEY! any time on fb ( Candid Candle Co.), IG (candidcandle.co) or even if you see me in person! Did I mention I love to connect with people? So, don't be shy! Be candid!

 

About Candid Candle Co.

_______________

I started this company not only because I simply enjoy making candles but also because I needed to find a way back to myself. Candid Candle Co. was birthed out of a time of discovery. I was beginning to discover who I was, what I love to do and what I love about myself & apart of that journey was about me learning to live in my truth. I had to become candid about my journey. One of the areas I found myself focusing on most was my beauty. Loving my complexion. Loving my imperfections. After awhile, I stopped enjoying investing in myself. I stopped enjoying taking care of myself. With all the hurt I've been through and the challenges I've faced in life I just became tired and disinterested in the upkeep of my appearance and we all know the saying. When you look good you feel good, but I felt neither. I was just trying to find a way to get back into loving myself again. Candles have a way of helping us tap into ourselves with their fragrance. They have a way of changing our moods and emotions, our mental space. That's one of the things I love about candles, how they transform you and your space almost instantly. Their ability to make us feel connected and make us feel the experience of self care is what made me fall in love with creating them. I wanted to take it one step further and become more involved in the experience and bring that connection into skin care by creating our body butter candles. Now, I've found my way back to loving my self-care again. My hope is that my candles can help you find your way back & keep you there.

Candid Candle Co. was created to serve as a reminder to stay candid about who you are & to love every minute of it. Let our candles encourage you to live in your truths, love yourself abundantly flaws and all, to take care of & nurture yourself so you can nurture others. I'm very proud of what I've built so far and hope you continue to take this ride with me and live candidly. 

XOXO,

Kiyana
