Only 2 more days! Only 2 more days!!!!
This weekend has been absolutely insane. Between baking cookies with my mom and grandma all day Friday, shopping/wrapping/cooking on Saturday, and cleaning the house/more baking/picking up my friend at the airport/going to dinner/Lebowski today, I barely had any time to melt my precious wax! I did get through a few things earlier in the weekend, though.
Ava's Country Cupboard. This scent was basically straight-up wood burning fireplace. It was nice, but got overwhelming. Even one tiny little gingerbread man packed a powerful punch. On cold sniff, 6.5/10. While warming, 6.5/10. The throw was 7/10, for a total of 6.5/10. I enjoyed it, but the smell of fireplace can get to be too much after a while.
I was less than pleased when my Sniff My Tarts order came and half the containers were broken. However, as long as the wax is good, it doesn't really matter in the long run. Lemon Danish Sticky Marshmallow was a chunk sample I got with my order...AND IT WAS AWESOME. It smelled like lemon danish mixed with creamy fruit loops or Trix cereal! The throw was pretty strong, and it lasted all afternoon and into the next night. I was super, super impressed. On cold sniff, 7/10. While warming 8/10. The throw was a 7.5/10, overall it was a 7.5/10. Like I said, impressive!
Beezy Tarts was a RADIANT, absolutely brilliant hot pink and everything I own must now be turned into this color. This scent was S-T-R-O-N-G and wonderful! In its cup, the only thing I could smell was pink sugar, but while it was warming, it turned into this creamy, toasty mix of pink sugar and marshmallow. It was such a lovely surprise since a lot of marshmallow scents aren't super strong! On cold sniff, 7/10. While warming, 8/10, and it lasted for almost 2 days. The throw was about a 7.5/10, for a total of 7.5/10! Beezy Tarts continues to be a rising star in my book! :)
SEEN the list of remakes Carol has been working on for her re-open after the holidays?! OMG, it's HUGE. It's going to take all of my being not to place an order, ha! Hot Toddy smelled better cold, actually. The throw was alright, but it just didn't perform as well as something like Mulled Cider or another apple scent. It was nice and appley, though, it just stayed in one room! On cold sniff, 7/10. While melting, 6/10. The throw was 5.5/10, for a total of 6/10.
In case I don't get around to updating again before the actual holiday, Merry Christmas, all!
What are your plans, anything fun? Anyone traveling?
Monday morning we're doing Christmas with my brother-in-law and his family, then that night we're going to my friend's house for dinner. Christmas morning will be at my mom's, and then we're having appetizers and dessert at our place! It's going to be a jam-packed few days! Be safe and have a wonderful time, oh, and don't forget to melt some wax while you're at it! :)
