I figure beginning of August usually signifies the end of summer for me. Coincidentally, my birthday is in August, so usually, when I was planning my birthday party; everyone was starting the old habits of "Back-To-School" shopping and an early bedtime.
Now I live in an apartment right next to the playground, and like an old Scrooge, I can't WAIT for everyone to go back to school. (Screaming kids on the jungle gym at 10:30pm, I can't wait for those little kids to be in BED!) Haha!
I usually try to reserve a post for when I have an order coming, a new click and ship, or it has arrived!! I did order a small order from Ava's Country Cupboard, all RTS!
2 Grubby Cake Tarts in Warm Vanilla Nutmeg
2 Grubby Cake Tarts in Sugared Vanilla Cookie
2 Large Cupcake Tarts in Pumpkin Cupcake
2 Doughnut Tarts in Apple Cinnamon Doughnuts
I also ordered from Scrubtastically Sinful! Here's what I got!

It's a first small order, just to try Scrubtastically Sinful, but I have a feeling, I might be back for more! Check her out on her etsy site!!

I have also been testing out some fall scents so that way I can go ahead and order for when I gets cold!! Be ahead of the game!!
Haley's Heavenly Scents Granma's Pumpkin Crunch ZB-Soooo nice!! Such a creamy cozy pumpkin scent!! I have some of this (I can't remember if I have it with Toasted Marshmallow or not) but it's on the way!
Haley's Heavenly Scents Girl's Night Out- REALLY LIKE!! So nice and fizzy kinda! Definitely try this out!
Haley's Heavenly Scents Pink Sugar- LOVE!
Haley's Heavenly Scents Apple Cinnamon Pound Cake- SUCH a great fall scent! As you all remember, I'm not an apple fan until it comes to fall scents. Even then, I can only do so much apple. But this one is fantastic!! This one I have on the way too!
Haley's Heavenly Scents Vanilla Bean Cookies- I LOVE THIS ONE!! It's a great cookie scent!! I mixed it with some Serendipity, sooo yummy!!
Haley's Heavenly Scents Pink Vanilla Sugar Cookie Dough Bread- I need brittle in this one, plain and simple!
Haley's Heavenly Scents Pink Serendipity- I loovvee this one!! I always forget how much I love Serendipity until I melt it.... ahh!!
Haley's Heavenly Scents Granma's Serendipity- Now I need this one in brittle. Yummmm!!
Haley's Heavenly Scents Satsuma Cotton Candy- I liked this one when it first started melting, but after I woke up from putting it on from the night before, it had this weird sour smell that wasn't like the initial warm smell! I'm not sure if it was just mine, my warmer, or my nose, but I did love it when it was first melting!!
Butterfly Lane Serendipity Noel- Yesss... this one is great!! Need this one when BL reopens!
Sugar and Spice Pistachio Coconut Fluff- This is one scent that just won't quit!! I'm INLOVE with this!! I need like, bags and bags. No lie!! I hope to order some from Long Cane Primitives when she reopens on the 15th of August!!
Orchid Lake Candles Pink Chiffon- This one is a pretty good dupe, I think I like HHS's a little bit better!! But really good!
Orchid Lake Candles Watermelon- This one is OK. I think I am growing out of watermelon for a bit... but like coconut, I'll come around to it again. But overall, this watermelon is very sweet. I like the ones that are a little sour!! Weird, I know! lol
Front Porch Welcome Friends- This one had a TON of clove, or something in it that was very unappealing. I wanted to like it, but it just didn't do it for me.
Also on a bit of the non-wax side, I celebrated my four year dating (or rather just being together 4 years) anniversary. My husband thinks its a little silly to be celebrating our first date, now that we are married, but I keep thinking, "This is the day, the date, that started it all. The memories, the moments, the essence of what was to come!" So I like to celebrate a little bit anyway! We'll do our real celebrating on our wedding anniversary (February 16th), since our birthdays are so close to our dating anniversary. It would probably run all together!
