November 2017 Candle Empties

November 2017 Empties

I really expected for November to be a relaxing month, yet it was anything but that. The month was such a whirlwind between going back to work full-time, continuing to freelance, and the Thanksgiving holiday. However, I did get to enjoy 6 candles & 5 wax melts when I had the time! Pumpkin Pie (1-wick,… 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 »

March 2017 Candle Empties

March 2017 Candle Empties

March flew by! We didn’t end up moving yet again and did quite a bit of traveling instead. Because of this, I was able to melt through my entire burn list with a few extras too. During this floral transition month, I burned 6 candles and 9 wax melts. Sugar Flower (1-wick) – Imagine a… Read more »

Pistachio Scent Guide

Pistachio Scent Guide

One of the latest trends in the world of wax is pistachio scents. It seems like every company is releasing their own version that smells almost identical to the other. I thought it would be nice to compare each one of them to figure out what the differences are, if any, and help you decide… Read more »

February 2017 Candle Empties

February 2017 Home Fragrance Empties

Even though February is the shortest month of the year, it felt pretty long to me! Maybe it’s because we’ve been waiting for our official move date or due to the several big snow storms followed by 70 degree weather. No matter the reason, it was an enjoyable burning month for me – I got through 8… Read more »

Key Lime Pie – Candle Comparison

Key Lime Pie - Candle Comparison

Last year, I randomly wanted to burn a key lime pie scented candle. Of course, there weren’t any available on the market at that time which is probably why I really wanted the fragrance in my collection. Since then, anytime I come across a key lime pie candle I immediately purchase it without question. Now… Read more »

Burn List – February 2017

Burn List - February 2017

Last month I stayed away from sweeter scents, but in February I’m ready to dive back into all the delicious gourmand fragrances. I think it’s the heart shaped boxes filled with chocolate that get me back in the mood for sweets. This month I’m continuing to keep my burn list fairly reasonable since we have… Read more »

January 2017 Candle Empties

January 2017 Candle Empties

This January proved to be an interesting start to 2017. We had tons of warm days, our move was pushed farther into the year, and I ended up getting pretty sick. I’m also officially working from home again so with all of this in mind you’d think I would be burning through tons of my… Read more »

Spring 2017 Candle Collections

Spring 2017 Candle Collections

By mid-January we glimpsed all of the Spring 2017 candle collections from most companies. In my opinion it’s pretty underwhelming. It doesn’t bother me how early in the year we see these scents, it’s the specific fragrances that I have a problem with. Below are the 3 major collections I’ve noticed and my thoughts on them. Yankee… Read more »

Burn List – January 2017

January 2017 Burn List

In Rhode Island, January is the month when it starts to snow regularly and we’re cranking up the heat. I always like to get away from the sweeter scents and begin burning warmer fragrances at this time. I’m not sure how much time I’ll have for melting due to packing up and moving soon, so I’ve kept my… Read more »
