Top 8’s of 2018: fragrance

The end of 2018 is upon us and I am not sad to see it go. A few highlights of this personally dismal year have been the exceedingly good wax hauls I've enjoyed. Narrowing down scent preferences, veering a bit out of my comfort zone, sampling and embracing types I might have previously run from,... Continue Reading →

Notes from the Stash: Tea edition

Heads up, I'm chatting tea scents not actual tea leaves today. I chat up teas too, in fact I have two new tea hauls to review next month. Someone around here really fancies tea lately (it's me), seeing as it's a favorite scent trend in 2018, I had a dig through my stash to see... Continue Reading →

Which means narrowing down to a top ten would be nigh impossible; therefore, I'm highlighting my... Continue Reading →

July Superlatives

The bests, worsts, and "mosts" of the month for July. Most impressed with: No sooner had I posted my mid-year Top 10 melts than I immediately found new scents to love.  Biggest usurper: Snooze Button Aftershave blend by L3 Waxy Wonders. I popped this little guy in and fell head over heels. Creamy buttermints, sweet lavender,... Continue Reading →

Best & Worst-March

Best: Month to attend the thea-tah, is March, apparently. From Playhouse Square to the school play, every weekend involved an aspect of attending some performance. During the state Speech tournament, I saw some exceptional performances. Judging a state quality competitive Humor round was a highlight. Marveling at the level of talent achieved by these speechies,... Continue Reading →
