Anniversary Post!

Happy Anniversary to ScentsMakeMyDay!!! Or maybe Happy birthday would be better?? I don't know!  All I know is that this blog has made it a year folks!!

As of today at 12:31PM Eastern time, this blog has 6838 views Year-To-Date.  It may not sound like much compared to alot of high traffic blogs, but I think it's pretty cool!!

I want to thank everyone for reading and commenting!  It makes me feel closer to the wax community and I feel honored that anyone even reads it!! So really, thank you everyone!! It means alot!!

Here's to another year, everyone!! *clinks glasses*

Pictures that I promised!! Been too lazy to take them, but have been eating better and feeling pretty good!!  So I went ahead!!

Here's my swap with Tori!

I have melted a ton of stuff already (Sorry!! <3 ) But she stuffed a ton of wonderful fantastic quality wax in the envelope, and I couldn't be happier!! Last swap, we had swapped, and I didn't have any bags (Didn't even think of getting any) so I feel much better about my swap to her this time!
Thank you Tori!

And here is my Rosegirl's destash from Rosalie Freeman!
Serendipity/Florida Key Lime Pie/Ice Cream Scoop Dough Bread, Circus Concession, Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Lemon Confection/Pink Sugar/Pink Lady, Blackberry Mocha Cookie, Simply Amazing Bakery, Strawberry Smooches, and Cherry Marshmallow something.

I also won a Butterfly Lane giveaway hosted by Butterfly Lane's Administrator Kara Rector-Duncan!! She graciously donated a beautiful tealight warmer and scent shots from her own collection!! She messaged me asking what scents I liked, and here's what I got!
Butterfly Lane: Pink Zucchini Bread, Pink Cupcake, Marshmallow ZB, Pistachio Pudding Cake, Pink Love Spell, and Mawmaw's Zucchini Bread!
She also included HHS Granma's Pumpkin Crunch ZB and Marmalade Spice ZB!
Thank you SOOOOO much Kara!! Made my day!! Plus she bubble wrapped all of this like a packing ninja!!! Amazing!

Rosegirl's Lemon Confection/Pink Sugar/Pink Lady- This one was alright.  I wanted to try it but it's a nice fruity blend.  Definitely smell the lemon and apple... just not a scent for me, but great for all of you that like these fruits!!
Sugar and Spice's Mango Coconut- Did not think I'd like this, but it's very very good!! Custom Blend from Tori!  She was nice enough to send me a cup in our swap!! It's WONDERFUL!!
Sassygirl's BerrySuma- This smells so good cold, I can only imagine it'll smell FANTASTIC warm! And it did!
iHeartwax Strawberry Satsuma- I love satsuma, and I love strawberry with it, so it's the first time me trying the company!! Excited!! My husband thought he smelled greenery in it.  I can kind of understand what he was saying.
Butterfly Lane Pink Cupcake- Yummmmmm!! Definite reorder!! Strong pink and not super sweet, but sweet!! YUM!
Butterfly Lane Pink ZB- I gotta say, BL's Zucchini Bread is one of my favorites!! Right up there with HHS's Granma's ZB!  It even smelled good COLD! I love this!
Butterfly Lane Pink Love Spell- I've moved past perfume dupes, but this was a really nice bedroom scent.  Nice and strong and very peachy without smelling like B.O.  Very pretty, would recommend it for you Love Spell fans!


  1. YEA! Happy One Year Scents Make my Day! That is huge! I'm happy you're here and blessing us with your posts! Good job Ashley!

    1. Thank you!! I'm glad you are enjoying them!! Makes me feel so happy!!

  2. Congrats my friend, and thanks for being awesome! :)

    I felt the same way about Rosegirl's Lemon Confection/Pink Sugar/Pink Lady...was a bit underwhelmed!

    LOVE your destash from Rosalie! YAY! She's so generous! :D

    1. Thank you Lauren!! Lol :D

      Yeah I figure it's just b/c I'm not a fan of any of the scents in it besides Pink Sugar. Buuutt I have a few other scents to try out.

      Rosalie really is generous!! I haven't seen her on the boards too much.. but I hope she is doing well. It's really nice to have someone do random acts of kindness like that! <3
