Finishing Sugared Apple


I just finished my sugar jar of Sugared Apple. I have to say it burned better than I thought it would have since the jar is larger at the bottom. It still didn't get a full wax pool at the end so I will scrape out the remaining wax and put it on the tart warmer. One last burst of scent before going in the garbage. I will probably save the jar since it's cute. I do have another jar but I think I'm going to save it for after winter. I hope everyone is having a safe and restful weekend and is ready for the sale on Monday. I have meetings at work but as soon as they're done I'm heading to the local YC.
Take care,

Friday's Five

My five Bath & Body Works products that are in my shower.
1. Country Apple
2. Secret Wonderland
3. Dark Kiss
4. Lemon Vanilla
5. Citrus Apple Blossom

I am slowly moving my summer scents out and bringing in my fall scents. I don't use a three step ritual, just the shower gel and depending on the weather a lotion/triple moisture body cream/body butter. If it's dry outside I will use a thicker lotion like a body butter or triple moisture body cream.
These aren't my top 5 faves of all time, just current scents.
Have a fantastic Friday!

Hot Tea and Lemon Meringue Pie

Tonight I am melting Candles By Victoria’s Lemon Meringue Pie.  As I have stated before I am a huge fan of lemon scents.  I figured since I am sitting at home, waiting for the next band of showers to hit us, I would melt away my tarts and take my mind off of the nasty weather that will be on and off all night long.

I love pie.  There I said it.  It can be creamy, fruity, cold, hot, custardy…it doesn’t matter.  I figured I would try CBV’s Lemon Meringue Pie while I sipped on hot tea.  Its got a fabulous tart/tang/bite to it.  The bright and tangy citrus is perfectly blended with bakery.  If you like the real deal then you will know what I am talking about.  When the custard gets back in your mouth and hits your tongue right where your taste buds register tart to the brain.  Sweet tart goodness.  SUGARY sweet tart goodness!  I love light and fluffy meringue too!  Just absolute awesomeness.  I have tried several versions of this in candle form by other companies….cheap candles I find at my local stores.  You know, the ones you pick up because really it’s $5 so maybe it will surprise me and if not…..it was only $5.  Each one is a disappointment.  Might smell like it would be good when it has a wax pool but once it’s lit, you get nothing.  Not this time.  I will, from now on, save my money and purchase this in a candle and more scent shots. 

If you are a lover of the lemon, then you should give this a try.  =)

Other scent shots from CBV you might like: Lovin’ Lemon, Lemon Lime Fizz, Fruit Loops

The Certain Candle Company Sale.....hmmm.

Samp and Tart Palooza -- September 1st to September 11th @ Yankee Candle. I heard this on Facebook. What is this? Well they sell votives and tarts for a dollar a piece! Fabulous! I have made my list and I hope to score some holiday scents and treasures! If you have some coupons it’s an even better bargain!!  I kept a $15 off $45 coupon that was on the front cover of my recent catalog.  I also have a $10 off a $25.  Very excited about this because it’s also a good time to get goodies for gifts.  I am always trying to find stuff for Christmas or anytime gifts for my friends.

Enjoy!! <3

Earthquakes, Hurricanes, and Candles oh my!

There was an earthquake today in VA. I hope everyone is safe tonight and I understand that it's a hassle and inconvenient but please be thankful tonight that you are safe. To the south, there's a storm a comin'! She's moving east but she so large that I'm sure where I live, we will feel some effects...at least slight gusts of wind. I will be keeping everyone in my thoughts!! In other news, I posted a new video tonight about my order from Candles By Victoria. Amazing! I think will start doing video reviews on some scents and blog reviews on others. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed since I have so many tarts/candles to catch up on. I have several that I've written on paper and just need to copy them on here. I might not add as many pictures on my posts, especially if I'm going to review scents on YouTube. We'll see....enjoy your night and happy burning/melting!!
