  1. Happy birthday Laurie!! Maggie, how frustrating to lose power again once you had gotten it back. I'm glad you at least have candles for scenting purposes! I'm melting PI Fruit Slices. (My PI Pumpkin Pie candle has been getting a workout, so I'm taking a break from it today.) Also, I recently finished some of my craft projects, so that's fun.
  2. Hi all! I am melting Aunt Nena's It's Your Birthday from a sweet friend. (Thanks friend!) Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes in the other thread. They are a day brightener for sure! Tonight DH and I are going out for pizza and then playing one of our favorite new board games. Jedda, I hope your broken foot heals quickly!
  3. Michele, I'm relieved to hear about your house and so, so sorry about your in-laws and friend. My family and extended family have dealt with that kind of thing before and it's incredibly tough. We'll be thinking of you as you support those around you. Maggie, so glad your power is back! How long was it out? I'm melting YC Kitchen Spice from a friend. (thanks friend!) Best wishes to Americans on Election Day! I'll be casting my vote later today.
  4. Hi everybody. I haven't been burning/melting a whole lot lately because I had some kind of food poisoning in the middle of the night (Sun AM) and have been recovering ever since. Yesterday I only ate bland foods. Back on the horse today though -- cheese, chocolate, the whole shebang. Glad that's over. Today I'm melting a yummy red velvet cake scent. (Thanks friend!) I also tried the foil trick on my PI Pumpkin Pie candle. As long as I give it enough time, it works for me. Later on today I might make some brownies. I've also been enjoying some board-game-related hobby stuff lately. Painting miniatures, sleeving cards, that sort of thing. Fun times!
  5. Hi all. Yesterday I melted a pink candy scent, and today it's LOL Vanilla Wish. On chilly days, my PI Pumpkin Pie candle has been coming in handy.
  6. I hope your house is ok or has minimal damage, Michele. We're thinking of you. Here in eastern VA we're 100% fine and life is back to normal. We're very thankful. The D.C.-suburb-area of Virginia has gotten hit much worse than we have. I'm not home right now, but the scents in my melters are LSC Cinnamon Twist (bedroom) and Can-Do Plumberry Spice. Somehow my nose detects a bit of Christmas-tree-ness in the Plumberry Spice, but that makes no sense...
  7. Howdy. We still have power in eastern Virginia, but the worst is expected to hit us late this afternoon and continuing overnight. Yesterday and today we have had steady rain, which has increased slightly today. Not as much wind as I would expect from a hurricane, but I think it's just delayed in getting here. I only own electric melters so my melting will be affected by the storm, but of COURSE I have candles, which will be convenient if/when the time comes. While DH and I are waiting it out at home, I'm melting a lemon cheesecake scent from a friend. Thanks friend! The good news is, I just finished my painting project yesterday thanks to the storm keeping me at home all day. I painted the miniatures that came with this awesome board game that DH and I have had for several days and are DYING to play. Today will be the first day we play it! Huzzah!
  8. Michele, I hope your home stays safe (and you too of course!). DH and I canceled a trip this weekend and we're hunkered down at home today. Classes at the college where he works have already been canceled for tomorrow, which is unusual. We are doing what we can to be ready to lose power. Luckily my candle collection always comes in handy for these sorts of things. In the meantime, I'm melting LOL Waffles Supreme and SH Orange Chiffon Cake.
  9. Glad your hubby is back, NM! I'm melting Can-Do Oklahoma Rain and doing a super-fun painting project today.
  10. Morning all. It's very humid here today, which is bad news for the painting project I'm trying to let dry. I'm melting PI Cranberry Spice in the living room and Nene's Kai Halulu in the bedroom.
  11. Actually my opinion of Moon's Harvest products is not very high and I am just trying to use the stuff up, so it didn't bother me. It was a lot like that moment right after you violently open a bag of chips or salad you've been struggling with, and the stuff flies all over the room. Mostly this incident was good for its humor value.
  12. Hi all. I'm melting LB Fruit Loop Cupcakes today. This is a favorite scent of mine from just about any vendor.
  13. Sooo....last night I had an incident with one of those HUUUGE bath bombs from Moon's Harvest. Actually it was one of their bath shakes, which are also very large. The one I have is kinda crumbly. Anyway, I was breaking off a piece to put into my bath when I lost my grip on it and a MASSIVE piece went tumbling down into...you guessed it, THE TOILET. I sheepishly informed DH that we had a problem, and he came in and good-naturedly rolled his eyes at the pretty pink fizz adorning our toilet bowl. Seriously it was a huge piece that fell in there. If I had flushed too soon, it would have clogged the plumbing. DH said we should just wait for it to dissolve. I had my doubts, but the alternative was to try to do something about it, and it is still a toilet, pink cotton-candy bath bomb or not. So I just left it in there for my whole bath and cringed when I flushed it later on, but the flushing process was totally normal and it must have broken down all the way. Whew! Hope Mr. Toilet appreciates the froo-froo bath he just received.
  14. Greetings friends. I'm enjoying SH Waffle Cone this morning. Boy, that contest down in the game room is a blast from the past. I remember a very similar contest from a few years ago when I went all out in listing spicy scents.
  15. Last night I melted Nene's Buttermints. This one was light and seemingly didn't last long, so now it's Can-Do Spiced Nuts. I thought I remembered this one smelling a lot nuttier than it smells now. Oh well, I'm enjoying the spice. Edit: Also, LSC Violet Lime is in the bedroom. I'm liking the contrast between this one and the foodier scent in the living room.
  16. TGIF. Nancy, we're all still thinking of you. Yesterday I melted SH Fizzy Pop (I have noticed this scent is very consistent among many different vendors) and burned YC Lemon Lavender. Today it's PI Cranberry Spice and my custom YC candle. Cranberry Spice is a good scent with a great throw, but I don't know that it's "gotta-have-it" status for me. I was going to do a spray painting project today, but it's too humid. Hopefully I can squeeze it in tomorrow, even though I have other stuff going on.
  17. I'm melting LOL Banana Pudding Wafers in the living room. Never thought I could enjoy a banana scent this much (it was a freebie in my last order). It's pretty yummy. In the bedroom it's PI Mistletoe. I prefer their Evergreen based on scent alone, but Mistletoe throws way better. Compared to YC scents, Evergreen is a lot like YC Christmas Wreath, and Mistletoe is like YC Mistletoe. If anyone is looking for a relatively straight Christmas tree scent from PI that's strong, I'd recommend Mistletoe. If you're ok with lighter, Evergreen is nicer.
  18. Today it's PI First Bloom. This one is really nice. I would recommend it for people who usually aren't big fans of florals. I'm thinking of getting it in a candle, but the jury's still out.
  19. So sorry about your dear dad, Nancy. You'll be in all our thoughts this week.
  20. Hi all. Melting PI Lemon Meringue Pie today. Sometimes I think the lemon smells a little artificial, and then other times I catch myself thinking "oh this one is nice." I can't make up my mind.
  21. Ain't that the truth. I'm melting PI Papaya Passion (yummy non-coconut tropical with great scent throw) in the bedroom. I'll have to try it in a bigger space next to see how it does -- it had no trouble filling the room with only one cube. In the living room it's LOL Raspberry Cotton Candy Cupcakes with a cotton candy candle from a friend. I'm realizing that I've kinda OD'ed on pink candy-type scents. I have lots of cotton candy/pink candy/rockstar-ish options that are all very similar to each other. This is mostly because of that Luna Bleu binge I did that one time. I'll still enjoy them all, I'm just going to space them out and melt different scents for variety in between.
  22. Today I'm melting a dupe of Lush Rockstar. Not a whole lot going on, wax-wise, because I've been out and about today.
  23. Happy Saturday everyone. NM, I second the retail therapy! I had to take a short waxie break because we had some overnight guests. But it's back on...LOL The Three Musketeers tonight, plus the new pumpkin pie jar candle.
  24. Today I tried two more PI scents, Evergreen and Fruit Slices. Evergreen is my dream Christmas-tree scent except it's way too light. I knew what I was getting into regarding a scent that was rated "Moderate." Fruit Slices is great, but pretty orangey. Not an even blend of lots of different fruits. This one is citrusy (although not as tart/clean as Paradise), especially orange/tangerine.
  25. Howdy all. Yesterday I dove right into my Pure Integrity order. I lit up Pumpkin Pie and melted a cube of South African Freesia. I'm not wild about the PP, and I don't see what so many other people see in it, but this won't prevent me from burning and enjoying it. Actually ditto on the Victorian Christmas. I got both of those mostly based on reputation, and found out that while I'll still enjoy the candles, I'm not in love with the scents. Oh well, I'm excited about the order anyway. South African Freesia review -- I am extremely picky about florals and will generally only try scents that have reviews along the lines of "oh I never like florals but I love this one!" SAF is a gorgeous scent...smells "true" and not powdery, perfumy, etc. I almost picked up a subtle evergreen note to it. Just beautiful. Very strong too -- I would have rated it "very strong" or "wow" instead of just "strong." DH mentioned how strong it was too. Anyway, this scent has a...a boldness or sharpness to it that I don't think I could take in candle form. I'm not explaining it very well, but this is not a shy scent at all. Try it if you like strong but not cloying florals.
