Bohemienne Life: Wax Haul

 The botanical nature of the melts from Bohemienne Life inspired a foraging trip for wild elements from the wooded, nearly overgrown trail near my house. Accompanying wax that so perfectly embodies the flora and fauna of it's inspiration with anything else didn't seem to fit.  5 oz. bags of Wax Crack shards were offered for... 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 →

Wicks Flicks ‘n Gifts review

One positive blogging perk is occasionally being gifted wax to photo and review. Selected by my similarly wax loving sis, Wicks Flicks n' Gifts, in business since 2013, is an etsy company I had never come across before.

I've gone through all the wax no-buy stages: rummaging through my stash... Continue Reading →

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 →
