September 2016 Candle Empties

September 2016 Candle Empties

September has come and gone in the blink of an eye it seems. Maybe it feels that way because I was extremely busy all month, which is also why I haven’t been posting much here or on Instagram. Either way, I still managed to burn 10 candles and 12 wax melts! Leaves (3-wick) – Leaves… Read more »

August 2016 Candle Empties

August 2016 Candle Empties

August was all about the transitional scents! All together 10 candles, 17 wax melts, 1 wallflower, 1 soap, and 1 body lotion sum up my month. It was a great fragrance month and here is everything I melted! Summer Boardwalk (3-wick) – One of my favorite fragrances of all-time; salty popcorn mixed with caramel apples.

Wishing it was Fall Haul

Wishing it was Fall Haul - Melting with Michelle

Hey, fellow melters! I hope the weather has been better where you live lately; in RI it’s been almost 100 degrees with extremely high humidity. It’s safe to say that I’m craving the cooler Fall days at this point. (FYI Dunkin Donuts is releasing their pumpkin spice drinks & treats today so we are one step closer to… Read more »

The Perfect Summer BBW Haul

The Perfect Summer BBW Haul

Within the last couple of weeks there have been several new collections at Bath & Body Works causing a lot of excitement. However, it’s not candles that are catching my eye in the newest Perfect Summer collection. For once I’m more interested in the hand soaps, body care, and hand sanitizers! Using an array of coupons… Read more »

BBW Summer Bonfire Dupe

BBW Summer Bonfire Dupe - Scentsy Bonfire Beach - Melting With Michelle

Okay candle connoisseurs, I have an exciting dupe for you. Remember the Seaside Summer collection that Bath & Body Works released in 2015? It had some great scents and my personal favorite was Summer Bonfire. I’m not really surprised that it wasn’t brought back, but as I burn through my last candle I’ve been desperate for something similar…. Read more »

First Scentsy Score

First Scentsy Score

During June, there were a couple unofficial lists of Fall scents testing and coming back to BBW. My absolute favorite, Radiant Red Maple, never popped up on any of these lists. I started really freaking out because I never bothered to buy more than one in 2015 and couldn’t find it during SAS. So when I… Read more »

Rare Finds at Foxwoods

Rare Finds at Foxwoods

Happy 4th of July! To the wax community this great holiday is also signifying the final day of SAS for both Bath & Body Works and Yankee Candle. I don’t know about you but I’m ready for these sales to be over, BBW especially had a disappointing selection in my region. The best purchase I made… Read more »

Here is what I hope to burn through for July 2016. Tropical… Read more »
