Weekend Wax Review August 26-27

This weekend was pretty awesome and laid back, which is something we have definitely needed after the last month of non-stop craziness.
We watched a lot of movies, had some laughs, and I also helped him study for his upcoming wine test...I should explain!
My husband does in-bound customer support for a wine company, but he is in the process of taking a special test to become a "wine steward;" if he passes said test, he can take this honor with him from job to job. It's been really fun learning about all of the regions where wines come from and subtle distinctions between different wines.

Today, while we did all of that, I burned a few different candles. I have been trying to burn a few different ones as my mood changes, because it isn't written anywhere that you have to stick with just one fragrance!

Here's the breakdown of my weekend burning:

Saturday: we were out most of the day, but when we got home for the night, I burned a candle from Bath and Body Works (Slatkin) called Lilac Blossom (4oz). This candle is extremely floral, but not as in-your-face as Flower Shop, which is my favorite floral scent from Slatkin, and the one I prefer. There's something a bit off about Lilac Blossom, I just can't put my finger on it...maybe it's too sweetly floral? If that makes any sense...

Sunday: I PROMISED Josh that I would burn my latest Marshall's find, Pumpkin Patch (a Spiced Pumpkin and Harvest swirl candle), because he liked it so much. This candle is AMAZING, and it's perfect how I'm feeling right now because I can't wait until fall is here! The scent is that of warm, inviting pumpkin pie with extra cinnamon, swirled with musk and apples. If you have a chance to go to your local Marshall's or Home Goods and fall scents are up your alley, BUY. THIS. CANDLE. You WILL NOT regret it!

Currently, though, I am burning Yankee Candle's Simply Home Fresh Water, another Marshall's steal. This one was an additional dollar off of the ALREADY cheap $5 price tag. This one is excellent as well: fresh, clean, like crisp water running down a cool waterfall, mixed with the slightest hint of limey citrus and some subtle florals. I've had this candle going for about 4 hours, and I think I'll stick with it; the house smells fantastic!...well, between the candle and the tacos Josh is making for dinner, of course.  :-)

Thanks for reading my first weekend wax review!
Hopefully I will get into the swing of updating my blog with little/good finds, quick reviews, and sale rumors.
Check out the links to the right for some awesome other blogs that I follow, these ladies really know their stuff!

Also, Nana, if you're reading, I am SO making you come to TJ Maxx with me when we're in Clairemont on Tuesday.

Have a fantastic week, everyone!
