WALK 'N' SNIFF: Post SAS Spring 2018 Candles

My bf is sick (hopefully not with the flu) so while I was out getting him some stuff to get better, I peeked in a nearby BBW to sniff some post-SAS spring newness. So without further ado, let's start at the top and werk our our down thru all of the NEW things that are currently in stores

Pomelo Citron (7334M8A1) - straightup Capri Citron without a doubt

Coconut Colada (7348K3A1) - I was really really hoping this would be the now forgotten Bahama Fizz but no such luck..though on the plus side, it's totally new.  So you get a creamy blend of coconut and banana equally followed by a tiny hint of cinnamon sugar spice. The rum smells similar to the rum that's in Vanilla Spiced Pear and Cinnamon Rum Raisin. It's a cute scent and folks who love tropical coconut and/or banana scents, this bud's for you.

Rose ( - *sigh EVERYBODY is getting flimflammed and bamboozled by this scent...and I don't understand why. Everybody on social media are losing their shit strictly based o…

RANT OF THE DAY: 2018 ~ No More Candle Drama in my Life

Image
For as long as I have been a part of the candle community, there has always been drama and negativity. Let's be honest, no community is free from the ignorant, the highly-opinionated, the petulant/childish and the straight up cray. That said, I am of the opinion that the amount of negativity and drama has escalated lately for whatever reason. And I am over it! I feel as though 2018 will be the year of changes being made - a year of renewal and rebirth, of personal/spiritual cleansing, of letting go, of doing things differently to be a better you. Starting now, I want our candle community to do and be better, with more positivity and inclusiveness. Here are some things that we as candle enthusiasts (myself included) need to stop doing....


1. Buying candles to show off
With so many candle enthusiasts flooding IG over the past couple of years, there has been an increase of this. We're all guilty of it; what's the first thing we do once we get home from our day of candle shoppi…
