Playing Catch-Up: Wax Style!

My Anti-Social Time lasted a month rather than a few days or weeks.  Lol I am blaming the cold weather.  It just hasn't really been agreeing with me.

OK this is going to be one long blog post so lots of good stuff to read!

First of all, let me go ahead and tell you guys that I lucked out and got to test out some really good product!!

The company is called "Steel Valley Scents"

And the first product I have been able to test is the lip balms!  I got sent one in Coconut and one in Margarita.

Here they are in this picture below:

Let me go on to tell you a little background about me and my lips.  My lips, for some unforeseen reason, is SUPER picky when it comes to lipglosses and lip balms.  I can only use Bath and Body Works' lipglosses, because those are the only ones I've tried that don't dry my lips out, and I mean dry them out badly.  I can't even use Victoria's Secret lipglosses.  

These lip-balms are the BOMB!  I tried it the first day I got it, and it wasn't too thick, but thick enough to coat my lips with a nice smooth texture.  Not too greasy, like some!  I don't wear the lipglosses from Bath and Body Works alot of the time because when I put them on, my hair will get stuck in my lips.  And that's not the case with this lip balm.  The ingredients include: Coconut Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Vitamin E.  I wish I had a before and after picture, but these are really good and I'd buy them for sure!! 

So if anyone has been looking for a good lip balm, who has problems with dry lips and is super picky like me, try this one!! 

Something else that is long overdue.  I got this ROAK from a lovely regular on the wax groups!  A "Lemon Lovers" package!  It's so good and wonderful!! I loved everything in it!

In this package was Front Porch: Lemon Noel, Lemon Bread, Lemon Mallow Bread, Lemon Cake Shoppe, Lemonverry Crumble, Lemon Poundcake, Lemon Sugar Cookie Dough Bread and Lemon Vanilla Nutmeg Cupcakes.  From Haley's Heavenly Scents: Iced Lemon Cookies and Lemonberry Cake.  From Scentsationals: Lemon Chiffon

I love everything!! I can't believe it's taken me this long to show it off!

Next, I have a very lovely friend who sent me Yankee Tarts!! Not just your average Yankee Tarts, but really rare and AWESOME Yankee Tarts!! Tarts like Lemon Lime, Cookies & Cream, Granny Smith Apple, Paradise Spice, Icicles, etc!! 

Then, last but not least, My L3!  This was originally supposed to be a Christmas present, but since I let my husband open one of his early, he let me keep one of mine!  (He's keeping hostage Butterfly Lane, Kimrie Anne, and TBG until Christmas, so bare with a fellow wax addict!) 

So I participated in a flash sale on L3's group page, which is very unlike me.  Usually, I don't participate in flash sales, because I have to move money around to order most of the time and don't always have it on hand.  Luckily, this time, I did!  And L3 has been on my "MUST TRY" Vendor List!

Here's what I got!

Chunks in Lemon Twinkies, Vanilla Pumpkin Waffle Cone, Extreme
Fruity Salad, Ice Princess, and Clean Lemon

The Heart is in Pink Raspberry Mango Sorbet, the little chunk in the
middle (I split with my friend, which is why it's little!) is Banana
Bubble Gum, and the HUGE pie slice is in Baker's Dozen!
Freebies/Samples! Pistachio Coconut Cream, Buttery Popcorn
Pink Mustache, and Pecan Pie! 

Here's a few pictures of what I've been melting/burning!! I have been burning more candles than I have been tarts lately!! So I'm changing it up a little, and it gives me a chance to put a dent in my huge candle collection.  

TBG Vanilla Frosted Grahams and TBG Pumpkin Masquerade
Bye Little Pumpkin Guy!

If it's unreadable (because my camera's been
blurry lately), TBG Vanilla Frosted Grahams

LCP Pink SCDB, Pizzelle, and Pink ZB!

Will be doing my non-waxey "Catch Up Post" Stay tuned, for real this time.  Haha!!


  1. The RAOK box of lemon goodies looks awesome!! Did you happen to try any of Steel Valley Scents wax melts? I noticed that her melts are made of all palm wax.. something I've never tried. That's great you found a lip balm that works for you :) I'll be curious to hear how you like L3 after you've melted some. xo

    1. I have not tried her wax melts YET!! But I want to soon!! I will definitely let you know how I like L3!! I am going to let them cure a bit before melting!! Probably will be good around Christmas time! :) That's how I'm allowing myself to wait for my other wax goodies until Christmas, telling myself, they're just curing!! They're just curing!! lol

  2. Nice collection of gifts and hauls! I bet the pumpkin and graham crackers mixed was great! I caved and gave Adam his big gift already and now I regret it! I NEVER do early normally! I don't know what came over me! Lol I hope you are doing well!

    1. Hi Julie!! Thank you!! Yes the Pumpkin and the Graham Crackers were delicious together!! Definitely a mix I'd do again!! Makes me think I should do a dessert of some sort like that next year! :D

      Lol What'd you get Adam? See, I'm such a sucker for letting Barry have some, if not all of his stuff early. I hate waiting.. and I figure since we don't have any babies to keep up the Santa charade, (even though WE BELIEVE!! LOL) it's ok to give some presents early!! He's so insistent about wrapping a few for me... lol Which is OK.... haha... I just am impatient!

      I hope you are doing well too!! Hopefully you can take some pictures of what you are doing for Christmas!! :D
