The Fakery Bakery Wax-summer preorder

Such is this batty, in-between time of year, I'm posting a Summer preorder after a Halloween preview. This Fakery Bakery preorder placed in mid-May, arrived the Friday before Labor Day. Still feeling conflicted over posting about wax hauls in the face of such devastation and loss experienced by so many this month, however, I think... Continue Reading →

Pour Girl’s Wax-must have restock

When a favorite vendor only restocks about four times per year, as Pour Girl's does, and you've missed the spring opening, like I did, but you love the product, and I do, you set alarms and drop everything to order. As the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones was starting August 20th, I was frantically... Continue Reading →

Vendor Review-Dapper Dachshunds

I love wax. That's probably a given. Turning on my main warmer is one of the first things I do when I get up in the morning, it feels like a little indulgence to start the day. With a strong sense of which fragrances I like and a willingness to stretch my comfort zone with... Continue Reading →

Vendor Feature-House of Phoebe Wax

This kaleidoscope of color represents one of my absolutely adored vendors. I named HoP my favorite find of 2016 in my year-end recap. Recently celebrating six months in business, House of Phoebe excels in my favorite scent types-earthy, woodsy, masculine, smoky and citrus. The store re-opened last week after a hiatus and I'm eager to check out the... Continue Reading →

Bonjour Wax Co.- Mini wax haul

A mini-haul because the order was split with my sister, who made me proud by successfully purchasing from her first timed restock (noon EST restocks don't work for me). She got the "Paris is Always a Good Idea" sampler and received a yummy Gaston melt cup sample too. Who is Bonjour Wax Co, if you don't... 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 →

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. Fulfilling my desire for irresistible restocks while not going overboard, and allowing me to save extra spending money for my New York City trip in June without feeling deprived. It started...

Windy City Wicks- Disney Duo

I couldn't resist a short Beauty and the Beast related post as I haven't been this excited for a fandom movie in I don't even know how long. As much as I'd have liked to attend on opening weekend, there's some schedule coordination involved amongst my family, but we plan to see it soon. Belle's... Continue Reading →

Spring scents & suds

The irony of posting about spring scents today is not lost on me as my area sits blanketed under a half foot of snow that's been falling since Monday night. It looks more like winter around here than all of January and February put together. Still, what better time to daydream of throwing the windows... Continue Reading →
