Beezy Tarts- wax haul

Well look at this, I've finally gotten a hold of Beezy Tarts wax. As another one of those old-school vendors who only promotes restocks via Facebook, I'm never up-to-date on when Beezy's is open. HUGE case in point, as I was searching scent notes for this post, I visited his website and happened to find... Continue Reading →

The Bathing Garden- Winter Collection

Oh what fun it is to open a package of festive melts and join in the Christmas spirit.

Willow WaxCraft winnings

It's been about one year since I discovered Willow WaxCraft's scents on etsy, and became enamored of Samantha's brand and fragrance style, that first review can be found below.

Jeannie from G&T is a kind and esteemed maker who started her small business around... Continue Reading →

One of the few times a year I concentrate on melting from my preposterous stash of Yankee tarts and votives collected over many years of sales and employee freebies. Since Spring has finally sprung here, I was quite inspired to delve into sunny scents. On... Continue Reading →

I'd only tried CPW's scents through samples with sugar scrub orders, or cups gifted from others and I was eager... Continue Reading →

New vendor: Gypsy Monroe Wax Co.

In many areas of life I can be downright practical. When it comes to turning away from sparkly, glittery pretties, however, I'm worse than a magpie. On such occasions, my husband will refer to me as Jeremy, the distracted crow from The Secret of Nimh. I do gravitate to shiny bits, although he's just as... Continue Reading →

Wax Haul-Sassy Girl Aroma

I had a plan, a wax purchasing plan whereby, I was only going to order from one larger and one smaller vendor each month.
