Swift & Supersonically Snappy Short Review #104: Sugar and Spice Gourmet Soy's Wild Watermelon

Well, the heat is on. It has been upwards of 80-90 off and on the last 2 weeks.
Sugar and Spice Gourmet Soy's Wild Watermelon
Cold Rating8/10
Lit Rating: 8.5/10
Throw Rating8/10
Overall Rating8/10; addicted to watermelon scents, have been for some time. This one is juicy, fragrant, sweet. Not much else but picture perfect watermelon. Loving the smell of it, but not the taste of it. Artificial watermelon or real watermelon? Great throw, smelled consistent the entire melt time, about 7 hours in the bathroom. Gorgeous pink color, but horrible on my poor warmer, which is not a dyed shade of hot pink. Brilliant vendor, in my top 5. Waiting to melt scents until the appropriate season (thanks, Deb! LOL). Tropical, but not in a Hawaiian/coconut/pineapple way. MMmmmm..

Band of Bloggers: Vol. 4 / April 2016

April is upon us! The birds have returned, the Northern Hemisphere has warmed up, the plant life is blooming, and the Band of Bloggers are gearing up for another monthly post. Feel free to join us in this conversation by commenting below!

What product have you tried that has surprised you with its performance? It can be anything that comes to mind.
Many years ago, Bath & Body Works had the best Wallflower bulbs. I mean, knock you on your socks, intense scent amazingness. I'd say this was 4-6ish years ago. Now, the ones I have tried lately have been real stinkers. It's sad knowing what products used to be fantastic have now been reduced to meh. That's an older example, so let me think of something newer for y'all!

I placed my first order with Lake Providence Lodge about a year ago. This is a vendor that was super hyped up in wax groups and the like. I am always wary about hyped-up vendors because usually, I am massively disappointed when it comes time to melt me goods. I will always regret being a doubted about LPL because her wax has always been relatively consistent for me! I have not had one horrible or non-throwing product yet, to my joyful surprise! And, her scents are super realistic, too. 

Now, for a bad example. I'm all about Trader Joe's. I like to read review blogs about new products and get a sense about what people think about products they have, anything from baked goods to cookies to frozen meals. I tried these really highly recommended thai lemongrass appetizer sticks one time, they have chicken in them, and they were the most disgusting, soap-tasting baked poo-logs I have ever eaten. Disappointment doesn't even begin to cut it. Do you think you can be surprised in a bad way, or does this count more a shocked?! I don't care, I'm leaving it in so others know not to get those nasty buggers ever!!!!!! ;)
