May’s monthly highlights and NYC itinerary

Hello friends, I hope nobody minds an early recap this month. I'll be too busy with last minute travel plans to push it back any farther, as this Memorial Day holiday provides a perfect opportunity to whip up a quick post. May was full of many lovely melting and blog-related moments. I received generous gift... Continue Reading →

Sniff My Tarts-custom blend list

Beads of sweat appeared as my hot little hands hovered over our laptop keyboard on Saturday morning. Months of dreaming up fragrance blends, list making and revising all led up to this moment; the Sniff My Tarts 30 minute custom opening. As a first time custom wax customer, I was anxious about ordering for many... Continue Reading →

Wax Haul-Super Tarts

There's been a lot of Super Tarts action around these blogging parts. I may have been mightily influenced by Jess from The Meltdown Blog, Julie at The Redolent Mermaid and an IG friend who places a weekly (!) order. But for the frivolity of 3 orders in the space of a month, I have no... Continue Reading →
