Closing the Week

60 hours a week at work is hard, so sometimes I forget to melt (I know, crazy right?) Last night I went out for a little bit after I got off work (errands) and after my husband and I got home, I lied on the bed and fell asleep at 8pm.  I didn't even change out my warmers.

I have been melting scents like:

Shayz Crazy Citrus
Scentsy Sunkissed Citrus
Beaux Savons Frais Pink Noel
Beaux Savons Frais Pineapple Dreams
Haley's Heavenly Scents Pink Sugar
Haley's Heavenly Scents Mulled Cider

Thats all I can think of at the moment.  I melted Shayz Crazy Citrus and Scentsy Sunkissed Citrus together, and it smelled like Juicyfruit gum.  I am not a fan of chewing Juicyfruit gum, but it was a nice smell, not one of my favorites, but it was good.  Beaux Savons Frais Pink Noel is WONDERFUL and I want more! Even in a clamshell, its amazing and so pretty (sparkly and pink! <3) BSF Pineapple Dreams is good, but not a favorite of mine.  Has anyone had a scent that they like better cold than warm?  Like for example, mint chocolate.  I love mint chocolate ice cream (cold) but when I smell it warm, it smells weird.  Same goes for pineapple.  The Pineapple Dreams tart threw well and was great, but its one of those smells that I like to smell coming out of the fridge.
I know I don't have to go into detail, but both HHS's Pink Sugar and Mulled Cider are amazing!!

I also got my Scentsy warmer doing my Scentsy party.  Its so cute!! A Pumpkin warmer!! Its a midsize warmer, and I am going to try it out after I finish this post!! I have an order from HHS and BSF on the way!! I can't wait!!

Thanks guys!!

Quick Post!

Quick Post for me today!! Its Friday (YAYYY!!! TGIF!!!) and I have my half day at work tomorrow... so the weekend is coming upon us, friends!!!

I have been melting and burning a good bit here lately!! Pumpkin Zucchini Bread from Beaux Savons Frais, Front Porch Strawberry Mallow Bread, Slatkin Spiced Cider, etc etc.  All of these are fantastic!!! Definite reorders (except for the Strawberry Mallow Bread).  I am not a huge fan of strawberry scents, but ordered it because I thought the idea was cool.  At first it smells like a milkshake (which was yummy, actually!) Then I got a HUGE dose of bread, and no strawberry/mallow.  I wouldn't order it again, but it was good while it lasted.  

I am burning Slatkin's Spiced Cider, only because I was too lazy last night to replace what I had in my warmer the other night.  But in my defense, I went to sleep at 6:30PM.  Yes, I was tired!!

Alright, everyone, thank you for stopping by, reading, and hopefully I will have something a bit more in depth and more fun to read this weekend!!

Haley's Order and Bath and Body Works.

Have any of you ever had it to where you couldn't stay up past NINE O CLOCK?!?!?!   I feel like an old biddy... lol

So news.... you guys came for wax news huh?  That's good because I have some!!!

I have been working so hard and my check was better than normal, so I was finally able to put in my Haley's Heavenly Scents order tonight that I have been bugging people with all week!!  So here it is, what I ordered!!

Combo Warmer Gift Set
Scents - Vanilla Cinnamon
Scents - Celtic Moonspice
Colors - Blue 
2oz TART CUPS - Cinnamon Doughnuts
2oz TART CUPS - Granmas Creamy Vanilla Bean Noel Zucchini
2oz TART CUPS - Candy Cane Noel 
2oz TART CUPS - Light Blue TYPE Dolce and Cabbana dupe 
2oz Tart Cups - Poison Pie
My two free six packs are blends of Apple Cinnamon and Sugar Cookie Cone, then another blend of Monkey Farts and Granma's Creamy Zucchini Bread!!! 

The blend of Monkey Farts is supposed to be a recreation of Farty Bread from Front Porch, but since it never is in stock, I MUST RESORT to mixing my OWN!  lol I hope its good!! It is the first time mixing scents and making my own combo but I am confident that Janet will make excellent blends!

I also went to Bath and Body Works today.  I FINALLY got the Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin 3 wick!! My store has been sold out for weeks, and I found it sitting by itself on a bodycare display.  That bad-boy was MINNEEE!!!!  I also got to smell and got the last Sandalwood Vanilla.  I am usually not a sandalwood fan, but I liked this one cold!! Then with the 3/$20, I got a Vanilla Snowflake.  I burned it tonight and definitely is a unique scent, but I do like it!!!

I sent my husband on a Yugioh duel with his friend this morning.  It's the friend's first regional tournament ever and my husband's first one in 7 or 8 years.  I am almost as excited for them as I am about my wax!! I thought I'd share!!

I also did my first video.  Please, please be kind.  It is 7 in the morning here... but I wanted to do it!! And yes, I live in Georgia, and I hate my southern accent.  I try to downplay it as much as I can, but it still manages to seep in ... 

Its a terrible thumbnail... but I think its an OK video.  I hope to do more and get more comfortable doing them!! But this is me!! 

OK I am melting Pumpkin Ice Cream Scoop Dough Bread from Haley's Heavenly Scents!  I really like it!! I might get that in a six pack next time!!   I have also melted HHS Apple Cinnamon <-- so GOOD!  And I'm not even an Apple person!!   Thats why I had it mixed with Sugar Cookie Cone!! Sugar Cookie Cone is new!!  So I really wanted it mixed with something!! 

I melted Front Porch's Pumpkin Marshmallow.  Its not as great as I hoped.  Which is rare with Front Porch.  But its OK.  One less scent I love.  Haley's has great pumpkin scents anyways!!  I also had Sugar Cookie by Front Porch too, and by the time it was melted, I was ASLEEP!  lol  But luckily, I have a four pack in it, so I can try it again! lol

I plan on melting today like CRAZY!!! This is my day off for the week!! So I am excited!!

Talk to you all later!!

First Day Off In Eight Days: SERIOUS MELT!

Hello all my friends!!

Manager-training has kicked my butt!! But I'm hanging in there!!

As for melting, I have been doing some melting!! Not as much as before, but I definitely have been!! Today is my first day off in eight days, so there will be SERIOUS melting going on today!! And I do mean, SERIOUS!  Lol

And then, on my serious melting day, one of my warmer's light bulbs went out (NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!)  I had Front Porch's Cinnamon Bread and Celtic Moonspice ready to be put in the warmers.  Well, I put in the Celtic Moonspice and left the Cinnamon Bread for later.  Celtic Moonspice is LOVELY!!!!!  First time I've ever tried a Celtic Moonspice scent from any vendor.  Its fabulous.  Definitely Front Porch 4pack material!!!  I also have Slatkin Smores Home Fragrance Oil from last year.  Love it together with Celtic Moonspice!

I also had the pleasure of getting in a Beaux Savons Frais order!! I had a cup in Grapefruit, Candy Girl, and Pineapple Dreams.  I also got a mini bread loaf in Blueberry Zucchini Bread and Pumpkin Zucchini Bread!! Sooooo very excited!!   I have already tried Grapefruit and split it between my two electric warmers.  It was so strong and so NICE smelling!! Its definitely the type of scent that you'd need to get your start to your day!! Its soooo nice and my favorite grapefruit from any vendor to this point!! Absolutely amazing!  I am going to see what kind of bundles she has, because this is a favorite of mine!!  I also melted it with Slatkin Cranberry Pear Bellini!!  Wonderful fruity combo!

For the month of September, I got to host a party through a consultant, a friend of mine, through Scentsy.  My party ended on September 30th.  I didn't get all the sales that I wanted, but it was my first time doing a party like that.  I got a hostess gift (the Pumpkin warmer that was 10% off for the month of September) and 6 Scentsy bars in the following scents: Awakening, Cinnamon Vanilla, Havana Cabana, Paradise Punch, Pumpkin Marshmallow, and Sunkissed Citrus.  I should be getting these in the next week or so.  I have only had Honey and Oats from Scentsy, so I am SUPER excited to try out these scents!!

I am hoping to order from Haley's Heavenly Scents again to get a warmer and 4-5 six pack of scents that I am really liking here lately!! The combo warmer is $20, and you get the warmer and two 6pack of tarts.  That an AMAZING DEAL!!  Alot of places have the warmer for almost just that, so its like you are getting the wax for free! :)  I Love it!! Plus free shipping!!

I am waiting for a Front Porch order.  It was supposed to be shipping sometime recently... I think on Wednesday.  So I am hoping for it to appear soon!! I have a 4pack of Sugar Cookie Dough Bread on my way!! YES!! :)  And some others!

Here are some of my new candles that I have tried so far from Slatkin/Bath and Body Works!

Nutmeg & Spice from Slatkin: AWESOME!! Took a little while to get the scent throw I wanted... but it was nice and strong, all night long!

Cafe Au Lait: Needed to be sweeter and a so-so scent throw.  They could have done better with this one.  I ended up returning the two that I got.

Pumpkin Cupcake: Definitely a keeper.  Sweet, but not too sweet. Pumpkin without being too pumpkin. Love it!!   And I hate Frosted Cupcake, so its a surprise!

Paris Amour: Great as a candle/HFO scent!! Very happy with this one and I love the jar!! So pretty!!

Cider Lane:  This smells EXACTLY like the apple farm that I went to as a child in my opinion.  My husband doesn't really care for it... but its the first apple scent that I've loved in years!! I am getting atleast three more!! It brings back so many memories!!

I still haven't tried Vanilla Snowflake or Peppermint Mocha yet.  I feel like I'm cheating on my fall scents when I think about trying them out!  lol

My Bath and Body Works store got in a few Christmas things and put them out early.  I saw Frosted Cranberry and Winter room sprays, Winter Cranberry soap, and snowflake candle holders.  All the stuff so far is sooooo cute!!! <3 I can't wait for more stuff!! I am waiting on Honey Vanilla Dreams and Eucalyptus Tea from the Aromatherapy line.  I haven't smelled Forever Red, so I'm excited for that too!   Plus I have to get more of the fall candles before they go away... I need more Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Pumpkin Carving (if my test store has it, I doubt it), 1 Autumn Day, a few more Cider Lane, a few more Pumpkin Cupcake, and more Nutmeg and Spice!! :)

Well thats about it, my dears!! I have been at manager's training, so alot of the time I left my plates in the freezer or left the same scent on for days!!  It's been a long hard week, folks!!
