Annual Mid-year Recap: Favorite Fragrances- 2019

Here we are, halfway through the year already. (WTH?) Half a top ten felt right for mid-year, so I'm sharing my 'fave fives': individual scents, vendors and scent trends.

As a first time custom wax customer, I was anxious about ordering for many... Continue Reading →

This week, I may run across a few mentions of how quickly the past month has flown by; however, shortest month or not, I felt February could not have dragged more.
