Burn List – September 2017

Burn List - September 2017

In my house, September means FALL IS HERE! I know the autumnal season doesn’t technically start until the 22nd but that doesn’t stop me from appreciating it as early as possible. Of course the only fragrance I’ll be focusing on this month is apple. CANDLES • Leaves – “Crisp Red Apple, Golden Nectar, Warm Clove… Read more »

August 2017 Candle Empties

August 2017 Candle Empties

August has come and gone in the blink of an eye! I didn’t get to burn all the candles I had hoped to this month (mainly because Yankee’s take forever to get through) but am happy with what I did melt. This August I burned a total of 5 candles and 8 wax melts. Berry… Read more »

Burn List – August 2017

Burn List - August 2017

August is here which means it’s a transition month for me! The majority of my candle/wax collection is dedicated to warmer bakery fragrances that I typically burn from August-February. I can’t believe I’m already pulling out these scents but am so excited! This month I’m going to be focusing on warmer fruity combinations that still… Read more »

Burn List – July 2017

Burn List July 2017

Happy July everyone! I’m so happy to finally be settled enough to start creating monthly burn lists again. This month I’m going to be focusing on both fresh garden fragrances and salty beach scents. Both of these scent profiles are the epitome of summer to me and I just can’t get enough of them during… Read more »

June 2017 Candle Empties

June 2017 Candle Empties

It’s official, June was the month I got out of my melting slump! The month flew by for me and considering how busy I was, I’m happy with what I burned through. I’m a seasonal burner and I don’t really have too many fragrances in my collection for this time of year. Nevertheless, I burned… Read more »

Label Redesign – BBW 2017 Summer Stories Collection

For those of you who don’t know me outside of the wax community, I am a full-time Graphic Designer. I get as excited as the rest of you when a new collection is testing and am most likely even more critical than everyone else when it comes to the packaging. I think everyone is super… Read more »

Spring 2017 SAS Haul

Spring 2017 SAS Candle Haul

Like most candle addicts, I was counting down the days for SAS to begin at Bath & Body Works. I’m not exactly sure why since I never find anything exciting in my region. I called around all the stores within 50 miles and not one had any 75% off candles. The closest store that had… Read more »

May 2017 Candle Empties

May 2017 Candle Empties - Melting with Michelle

May always tends to be a slow burning month in my home due to spring allergies. Combine that with still trying to get settled in the new house plus being busy every weekend and you get the slowest month of melting in well over a year. This past May I burned through only ONE candle and 4 wax melts. Berry… Read more »

April 2017 Candle Empties

April 2017 Candle Empties

April was a crazy busy month because we FINALLY moved! Between packing everything up, moving it all, and trying to start unpacking I didn’t have too much time to focus on my melting life. With that in mind, I was able to get through 3 candles and 11 wax melts. Sugared Lemon Zest (3-wick) – This is a dupe… Read more »

Burn List – April 2017

April 2017 Burn List

Remember last month when I told you we were moving? Well that didn’t happen and SHOULD be happening this month. Rather than making an extensive list, I’m going to try and simplify. I probably won’t be able to burn candles nearly as much as I’ll be able to melt wax, so the list will definitely… Read more »
