Mixin’ it up

Inspired by a conversation with Kari, one of the sweet Yankee Candle Sisters, I'm showing off some mixology I've been melting this month. My endless stash of Yankee Candle tarts have nearly been forgotten since discovering vendor wax, but what else is a girl to do when she's on a wax ban and isn't sure... Continue Reading →

Scentsy spring/summer haul

A good friend hosted an online Scentsy sale in April and naturally I picked out a few spring/summer offerings. One from the new 2017 line-up, three new-to-me scents and one repeat buy.

Napa Valley Sun/Lake Sunset

Would you prefer watching an inspiring summer sunrise, or a relaxing summer sunset?  You really can't lose either way, as long as you are able to see one.  Short post today, but I shall make up for that by squeezing in two reviews of classic Yankee Candles and a quick peek at the dreaded new...
