Band of Bloggers: Vol. 12 / December 2016

 A full year of fragrant sharing with the Band of Bloggers rounds out 2016. Thank you for supporting the blogger community and taking the time to read and participate in our posts. We will be continuing the Band of Bloggers in 2017 but with some new writers and blogs to follow. Thank you Sunnee and Michelle for this past year of fellowship. We will miss you!

Did you have any favorite wax moments this year? A vendor who went above and beyond? A blend that knocked your socks off? Did you have a RAOK or wax community experience that left you warm and fuzzy? Please share some of your favorite wax moments of 2016 with us. 

My favorite wax moment of 2016 is really an overall theme to the year, and that's buying less and melting what I have. It might sound like a cop-out, but I was on the fast track to crazytown there for a while. I couldn't stop buying, hauling, and videotaping what I'd buy, I thought for sure I was headed for addiction status. When my husband and I moved, I realized just how much wax I really had. My restraint has slipped up here and there, but I've only purchased wax a handful of times this year as opposed to a handful of times each week like the last few months. I am proud of myself, even if my blog has slipped in the meantime.

A vendor who have gone above and beyond this year is Shanna from Sugar & Spice Gourmet Soy. She always has the best, most consistent products around, and she clearly works her tail off so she can stay opened for custom orders most of the year. I just love her wax, and you should try her if you haven't done so already!

  1. I know how it feels to have too much! I feel guilty ordering when I have a lot. I feel overwhelmed when I have a lot, and pressured to keep melting more, faster so I can get the stash back down, and then I don't enjoy it as much anyway. I prefer to have a small stash and order as I need it, but with the way vendors do business now it's hard to just place a small order here and there as needed.

    I hear ya!


  2. I am so proud of you! How cool that you got to melt through and declutter most of your stash! It must feel liberating. And I agree with Sugar & Spice. Shanna really has a great system that works for her and her customers. Glad you had a great 2016!
