  1. Afternoon everybody 

    Well, today it is me that's literally melting! So hot here, not by some of your standards I'm sure but for me it is. 80° and I don't like it. I've got my ceiling fan on in the living room and indeed it is helping. Went out for my walk, wisely I went to one that mostly has woods so it was quite nice walking under the trees. 

    On to wax now

    Spring Kween by The Little Big Wax Co in the kitchen and hallway, sells of furniture polish and cleaning products. Quite lovely. 

    Marshmallow Fluff by the Enchanted Wisp Wax Emporium in the living room. Yep, smells like marshmallows. All sugary and sweet. 

    Maggie, can't wait to see the puppy when you get her. 

    Stay safe everyone 


  2. Afternoon all. 

    Melting again today, woop woop, I'm back in a melting mood. 

    In the kitchen I'm melting Relax by Darley Lama. It's a dupe of Radox bubble bath. Do you have Radox over there? 

    In the living room I'm melting Carrie, again from Darley Lama. It was from her Halloween box last year. It's described as sexy, MYSTICAL and musky. It's very relaxing. 

    Hope you're all well. 


  3. Maggie, Amy, don't worry, all is fine here. Nothing sinister has happened. We are all fine. No, Amy, haven't been anywhere, we still have a 5 mile rule about travelling. It's slightly flexible for us who live in rural places as your local supermarket/doctor etc might be 10 miles away. Mine is 6 miles or so away. 

    I've just not been in the mood to melt. Burnt a candle a few days ago, that's it. 

    Catching up on here and reading all your lovely scents, I may melt tomorrow. 

    Stay safe ladies. 


  4. Morning all, its damp and dreary here, can't complain as we've had some fantastic weather here lately. 

    Michele, glad you've been able to get a haircut. My hair needs it too. It's not too bad at the moment, usually my hair is about just below my chin, without realising we were about a week away from lockdown I went and got my hair cut very short, almost pixie cut. I'm so glad I did. That was mid March. 

    I'm glad we are still in lockdown. England has eased it a bit, people are allowed to travel anywhere in England for their exercise as long as they don't stay overnight anywhere (no hotels or holiday parks open for them to anyway, and definitely not with friends and family or to a second home either) They're not allowed to cross the borders into Wales or Scotland as we are still being strict with our lockdown. Northern Ireland is too but you'd need a boat to get there. Over the last few days there's been a lot more police around as people from England seem to think they can come here to our beauty hotpots, they are being sent right back. 

    Anyway, melting today

    Relax by Darley Lama 

    Carrie by Darley Lama from last years Halloween box, it's mystical, quite strong, maybe patchouli in there somewhere. 

    Have a lovely day. 😁❤️


  5. Michele, I'm thinking of you and your family, sending you a virtual hug. 

    Melting the same as I did on Thursday, was it Thursday? The days are blending into one. 

    Strawberry White Cake by the Enchanted Wisp Wax Emporium 

    Capri Olivio by CFTKR 

    Its been a glorious week her weather wise, 67° today. 

     


  6. Morning all, not been around here for a while, hope you're all okay. All is well here, getting used to it all now. 

    You're all melting some lovely sounding wax, not melted anything in about a week so I'm starting afresh today. In my living room I had 4 melters with wax in, all very faint so lit them all yesterday to finish them off. Smelt quite pleasant even though I couldn't remember what was in there, lol. I could detect pink sugar somewhere. Anyway, all burners are now free of wax and washed. 

    Melting this morning

    Living room....Strawberry White Cake by The Enchanted Wisp Wax Emporium, a new to me vendor and melting for the first time today so we shall see how that goes. 

    Kitchen....Capri Olivio by CFTKR

    Have a lovely day everyone. 

     


  7. Michele, is it really one month since the wedding? Wow, that's gone so quick, and the world is so different. 

    Maggie, hope you're well? Yes, report in please. 

    Amy, yes, my hands feel dry too with all this handwashing. There'll be a shortage of handcream soon. 

    Stay well everyone

    Will check back when I've decided on my melts. 


  8. Good morning, 

    Michele, the wedding sounded fabulous, and Hawaii is a dream destination for me..... one day. 

    Maggie, hope you're better. 

    The flooding has been horrendous, thankfully we haven't in our area but about 30 miles away there has been. South Wales and parts of England has major flooding, its been devastating for some areas, especially as there was flooding a week before with Storm Ciara. Yes, we've had the gales and rain but at least we are safe and had no damage. 

    Anyway, today I'm melting

    Fresh Cut Grass by Daisy Chain Wax Melts

    Pink Sugar by Darley Lama

    Have a lovely day everyone 


  9. Thanks for the well wishes, we are at the end of this sickness bug thankfully. 

    Maggie, hope you're feeling better and I'm sorry to hear about your relatives. Not a good start to 2020 indeed. 

    Michele, not long to go now, looking forward to hearing about the wedding. OPT? I'm certain I've tried this vendor, sounds familiar. Long story short, a few years ago there were people over here who set up their own online business and bought from American vendors and sold them on. Then, rules came out here that all vendors had to be CLP compliant and every wax had to have a safety label on them. Well, that would include any wax that came from abroad too and it had to be the vendor who did it, not the person here selling it on. That would obviously be so much more work for your vendors to do it just for us. We can still order direct from America obviously, if its for our own use, its only if we sell it on as a business thing we have to comply. Phew, longer story than I thought, lol. 

    Amy, happy news about your colleague, wonderful. Did it snow last night? 

    Carrying on with your challenge Amy, I'm melting Snow Fairy by Darley Lama. It's pink!! 

    Happy Friday everyone. 


  10. Morning! 

    Maggie, hope you are feeling better. I'm afraid it's the same over here, we're having an illness bout too. Couple of weeks ago Mike had a cold, on Saturday both myself and my son started with a sore throat (only mild though) then developed into the sniffles for me but has completely floored my son. Temperature, aches and headache. Thankfully he's better than he was. 

    Debra, black and Tiffany Blue sounds amazing. 

    Michele, not long now for the wedding. 

    Amy, joining in today for your melting challenge

    Kitchen ~ CFTKR Chilled Sangria

    Living Room ~ Darley Lama Mum's Day Off (pink wax) 

    Have a lovely day everyone 


  11. Ladies, not been here in a while

    Michele, when is the wedding? Black sounds very chic for a wedding, I see that a lot in weddings over there, doesn't seem a thing here. 

    Maggie, hope you get positive news re your DH. 

    Amy, rain again here today, and cold too. I'm longing for spring now. Glad you're doing another melt challenge, I've loved your January one. 

    Just changed my wax to.... 

    Living Room - ScentSationals Cuddle Up

    Kitchen - YC Home Inspirations Sugar Blossom

    Have a lovely day. 


  12. Hi all, 

    Valerie, hope you get answers soon re your husband. 

    Michele, glad the PT is going well. 

    Maggie, Elephants Ear? What on earth does that smell of? Intreagued. 

    For me it's Darley Lama Lavender and Chamomile, so soothing and relaxing. 

    I'm off out shortly, family meal for my uncle who turns 70 next week. Small gathering as he didn't want a party but this week decided a family meal would suit. Looking forward to it, the restaurant is either Bangladeshi or Indian, I can't remember, lol. 


  13. Morning all, it's a cold and frosty day today, about 40° and just got back from breakfast with Mike then went meat shopping at a local farm shop. Can't beat fresh from the farm meat (and veg, but didn't buy any) 

    Am in limbo with my melt warmers, sniffed them, no idea what's in them, most have some fragrance left so not sure what to do. Might light a couple of them and see what that smells like. 

    Have a lovely day everyone 


  14. Morning all

    Well, its a blustery cold day here, as we live up in the hills its worse here. Was out early today as needed 2 new tyres for my car, its a lot calmer down there. 

    So, back home now, changed wax to 

    Cleaves Pistachio Pudding Cake in living room

    Yankee Candle Home Inspiration Pomegranate Coconut in the kitchen. 

    Tell me, is Kettle Corn the same as popcorn? 

    Have a lovely day everyone.
