Soy Candles by Nancy Boy

Gift Challenge: "My friend loves beauty products. She's got a bottle of everything under the sun. What should I get her?"
Occasion: Bridal Shower, Birthday, Just Because
This past weekend, I spent a fabulous day in Hayes Valley in San Francisco for a girls' day out starting with lunch at Citizen Cake, a full afternoon of divine spa treatments at Pure Envy and ending with a delish dinner at Paul K.
A little before lunch, I took a stroll on Hayes street to checkout all the cute stores. Nancy Boy caught my eye with its blue shop front and very clean, cottage-chic appeal inside. I noticed that the products were simple, all white soaps, oils, laundry detergent and more. So I picked up a card to investigate it further and discovered that they focus on quality ingredients like 100% essential plant oils. So if you are looking for superb quality, equally attractive pricing and a unique brand of pampering products, here's one with a line of lovely options like: Soy Candles, Sweet Grass Essential Oils or Tea Rose Body Bars.  Available at
