Band of Bloggers: Vol. 19 / July 2017

As mid-summer approaches, my mind drifts to vacation times, getaways or mini excursions out and about. One tank trips. Parks to explore. 

Do you take a summer vacation or do small getaways? What do you have planned? If not, what would be your ideal vacation or retreat? What are your favorite local haunts? Give us some places to check out!
We don't have any fun plans this summer. It has been quite a while since we've taken a vacation, we just don't have the fund to go anywhere right now. Maybe we need to book a hotel room and spend an entire day doing nothing in town. STAYCATION!!! Locally, there are tons of things to do in town! We have the zoo, the Wild Animal Park (I REFUSE to call it the Safari Park), Lego Land, tons of food places, Liberty Station, beaches, Balboa Park, Old Town...there's something for everyone in America's Finest City! My ideal retreat? I would love to go to some place where it doesn't get up to 90+ degrees on the daily! I'd love to travel to Australia on vacation. That would be incredible. 

I am not going to lie.... as summer starts revving up... I am catching myself not only daydreaming about vacation but also fall scents. I am sure it may be too early for some and others melt fall scents year 'round, but I must ask... where are you planning to order your fall smell goods from? It can be vendor wax, candles, bath and body or perfumes. <3 Just spill!
I think I will make an order from Sugar & Spice before fall actually starts so I am well prepared for the season. I might hit up a couple of vendors, actually, but I find myself so out of the loop with newbie vendors, I don't know where to start! PLEASE recommend me some new, awesome wax people to buy from!! I will probably pick up 2 more pumpkin apple candles from B&BW, only because we loved our last one from 2 years ago SO much!

Please, feel free to answer these questions in the comments section below.
We hope you'll visit these Band of Blogger blogs and help support the blogger community!

  1. I can't help you on new vendors because I've pretty much given up and am phasing out of indie wax. Will post about what you end up choosing? I'm curious enough to read, but not order. lol


    1. I will, if and when I decide who to go with, definitely! I may end up with a tried and true vendor because I hate spending money on vendors that amount to nothing (spent waaaaaay too much doing that before).

  2. Sugar & Spice! Yes! I need some Pumpkins in the Fire soon. Thank you for reminding me of Shanna.

    Sounds like you have a ton of fun things to do in and around San Diego. I hope you get a chance to get out and about. I sent you a box.. wondering if it arrived?

  3. My husband and I have been staycationing for years now. A tragic combination of lack of funds and lack of motivation has kept us home, something we badly need to rectify! But there's lots of fun to be had by checking out places in and around your city that you've been intending to visit, striking a few items off that local bucket list. :)

  4. Heck yes to Staycations, especially in your city. Have fun exploring!
    Let's see, you likely know more vendors than I do, I believe at least 4 BoB's will be ordering from Dessa's Homespun scents for fall goodies, open the 1st-20th every month all scents available. I know you've tried Super Tarts...L3 Waxy Wonders out of Washington State does great stuff, currently open for custom ordering but also has RTS, clamshells, shapes, chunks WITH lots of fruity blends that you seem to love. I recommend them!
