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 →

Super Tarts- Fright Night Fall haul

Halfway to Halloween seemed like the right time to share these Fright Night themed melts, even though they were ordered from Super Tarts back in July. Clamshells are $4.25, shipped for $7.35 and all arrived unscathed in about two weeks.Annabelle- Brown Sugar Pecans, Pie Crust, Blackberry and Marshmallow fluff. Sticky candied pecans beckon with lingering warmth... Continue Reading →

Summer scent trend: Sea Salt

It's been a minute since posting a "Notes From the Stash" edition and now that my wax haulage has slowed to a trickle, it's time for another dip into my wax stash. I love to identify fragrance trends, gauge popularity and make predictions. Perhaps inspired by my current Florida beach location/coaching trip destination, one trend... Continue Reading →

Wax Round-up 2017

Ballgame-Super Tarts

Okay, so, I have featured Super Tarts fairly recently and I'll be reviewing a couple of different candle and wax vendors this month, but with all of the new releases and re-releases that Super Tarts has added this summer, I just had to promote one of my favorites before it's no longer available. Not to mention... Continue Reading →

Finnick – Super Tarts

  What do you get when you combine good quality wax melts with one of the greatest YA series of all time?  One pretty happy fangirl!  For my first ready-to-ship Super Tarts order last month I had to indulge in the "Sniffing Games" collection, inspired by The Hunger Games books and movies.  The Super Tarts team is...
