A Day in the Life Elizabeth Minett

Currently residing in Canada prior to relocating to Miami, Elizabeth is a former model, mom & founder of Cander Paris - a scented candle range. Elizabeth shares with us her lilac infused day and a visit to grand Ma and Pa's house with her little son Lyon.


Lyon is already in my bed before sunrise, so we always cuddle a bit before rolling out of bed. I’m working on being a morning person... I always have a big glass of water by my bedside, which I drink first thing when I wake up.


Now that the weather is warmer, I start the morning with a protein smoothie for me and Lyon. It’s the weekend, so I always make a point to do something fun and out of the usual routine - like blueberry pancakes with edible forget me not flowers.

Elizabeth's Lolie selection!


Every weekend, we do something fun and different, and today it’s a picnic!


It’s lilac season, and they are in full bloom! Lilac is one of my favorite flowers and fragrances, and I absolutely love fresh flowers in our home. We go lilac picking at Grandma & Grandpa’s house.


In the evenings, to wind down the day and set the tone for rest and quiet, I always light a candle. Of course, I light a candle from my brand Cander Paris (re-launching this fall!) Today I choose our new “Matriarch” candle (for the matriarch that I am) that smells heavenly of Japanese wood & linen.

After bathtime, Lyon plays with some toys while I spend some time working on a side passion project - the children’s book that I wrote! (Illustrated by Michele Jonas)


After Lyon goes to sleep, I spend the evening in self-indulgence. Often Netflix and dessert in bed, but tonight I choose some quiet-time meditating.

Goodnight Moon.
