Subscription Box Corner: June 2016's Flicker Box!


I am so behind on this blog, actually, I'm behind on literally everything in life, but still, never giving up! I just like to actually melt these candles before I review them. So, I am behind. SORRY Y'ALL.

Here's June's Flicker Box.
This month's card!
I had the opportunity to try Hawk + Hatchet from this box many months ago and really enjoy their products. I haven't been looking to buy many more candles since these subscription boxes fill me up in the candle department, but if I had to choose one vendor to go back to based on my experiences with these sub. boxes, it'd be this one. This Port Angeles candle looks small, but it packs a mighty, fragrant punch! I have used this candle clean to the bottom I loved it that much. Its sandalwood top notes can be smelled immediately after opening the lid. This is an earthy, very lovely scent, one of the few with patchouli I love. IMMEDIATE repurchase!
Illume has always called to me, though I've never bought from them outside of subscription boxes. Their Desert Tulip candle was quite excellent. The throw was a solid medium most days, but when I turned the fan on and burned it in the living room, it packed an even bigger punch! It's a delicate floral scent mixed with what one might describe as cactus-y, earthy notes, and a little bit of dirt-swept wind. This company rocks!
I am saving this candle from Armadilla Wax Works in Copper Canyon to give to a friend. It's much too patchouli for me, but I absolutely love the colors and texture of this candle!

Band of Bloggers: Vol. 8 / August 2016

Welcome to the August 2016 edition of Band of Bloggers! Record temperatures across the globe have us feeling the heat and looking forward to Autumn, especially those delicious scents that make our homes feel warm and cozy. 

This month we are sharing our favorite fall blend and also the vendor we would turn to first to order this blend.
My favorite fall blend it mixing celtic moonspice with any kind of apple cinnamon non-bakery scent. I'd probably turn to Rosegirls for something like this, though their celtic moonspice isn't the strongest I've ever had. Maybe Sniff My Tarts, if they opened more frequently!

In the non-wax related category, we're each recommending a book that we have read and loved.
The last book I read was "Me Before You" by Jojo Moyes before the film came out. I really enjoyed it! If I had to pick a recent book I enjoyed more, I'd say "Eleanor and Park" by Rainbow Rowell. Loved it! 

Please join in and comment with your number one fall blend and definitely give us your best book recommendations!
