The Bathing Garden: Summer scents

Traveling disparate landscapes of sandstone bluffs along rocky coastlines, heat-baked deserts, gardens of abundant hardy herbs, faded flowers and perfumed evenings near the close of summer are the impressions conveyed by a recent small splurge of The Bathing Garden's wares.Dreaming of Dreams Wax Tart-French lavender and cool camphor blend with bergamot and clary sage. A... Continue Reading →

New Vendor- Earth & Honey

These items were given in exchange for an honest review. My sister discovered this vendor at a farmer's market and raved about the wax. The ensuing social media follow lead to an offer for a blog product review. Eric, the creator of Earth & Honey started his (ad-)venture last November and has steadily increased production,...

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. A shop specializing in down home scents with country-chic style. Homespun primitives aren't part of my usual... Continue Reading →

Mixology: Spring edition

My seasonal scent mixology posts are some of my favorites. One of the few times a year I concentrate on melting from my preposterous stash of Yankee tarts and votives collected over many years of sales and employee freebies. Since Spring has finally sprung here, I was quite inspired to delve into sunny scents. On... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

Mixin’ it up

Inspired by a conversation with Kari, one of the sweet Yankee Candle Sisters, I'm showing off some mixology I've been melting this month. My endless stash of Yankee Candle tarts have nearly been forgotten since discovering vendor wax, but what else is a girl to do when she's on a wax ban and isn't sure... Continue Reading →

Lasting Scent Candles: Way waylaid review

In January, a fellow waxie posted a pic of her Lasting Scent Candles order, online. I'd heard of the popular brand previously, but wasn't aware of the store opening because updates are made soley through Facebook. Unable to resist the wicked temptress of catching a hard-to-get brand's opening, I made an impulsive decision to order.... Continue Reading →
