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 →

Vendor review-Fresh Picked Scents

What is your deciding factor when selecting an online wax or body care brand? Being relatively new to the vendor wax game, I rely on word of mouth or reliable blog reviews. With no Facebook account, I am pretty reliant on Instagram and make most purchases to vendors with a presence there. Of course, when... Continue Reading →

Wax haul- Pour Girl’s Wax

The hallmark of a great wax haul is when you love every scent and wish you ordered two of each. My exact feelings for this order, which demand a Valentine's Day post to express my love. Pouring wax since 2015, I introduced Pour Girl's Wax in my year-end recap post as one of my new... Continue Reading →

Seeking Comfort

For those times when things don't go as planned, when life twists and turns unexpectedly, your week feels too long and your to-do list longer, when you're in pain, or as in the words of singer Daniel Powter back in 2005, you've had a bad day; what do you turn to for comfort?

Fall Fun-New Etsy vendor

Up next for review from the 2016 festive collection is the third cocktail-inspired fragrance in a row, Bubbly Pomegranate. With it, I'm beginning to think that Yankee Candle has a drinking problem this year😉 This scent is sort of a combination of the two previously reviewed festive scents in the series: it has the fizzy...

Mini melting series- Alpine Martini

Part 2 in the 2016 Festive mini melting series is Alpine Martini. I rarely order a martini these days, but I have imbibed a few cosmos in my time; therefore, I was intrigued and excited by this combination of fruity berries and woods, especially around the holidays. Yankee Candle has done this type well in... Continue Reading →

April Showers

April showers brings Yankee Candle news and maybe a Rainbow's End?  It's been confirmed here that Yankee Candle Company plans to change their labels, starting 2017.  I, for one, do not like the new design.  If it's an attempt to make the jar designs more modern, then it looks like what a 1980s version of...

Carefree? Yes please!

Meet my new love...it's name is Carefree and it smells amazing.  I rarely buy brand new scents in candle form, preferring to test them out in the wax tarts.  However, this is a Yankee Pure Radiance which isn't available in tarts, so I committed to the candle with a free medium jar with $25 purchase coupon....
