Another week gone by. I took a couple of days off from work last week and used that time to
turn forty get the house fully cleaned and organized.
I have a confession to make. My wax obsession is slowly, very slowly, starting to wane.
That was a little difficult to say. I'm taking a deep breath.
I still love my wax and I get excited when I pick out my melts throughout the day but the excitement to order new wax just isn't what it used to be. I'm not even too terribly twitchy about ordering fall scents.
This year I may do a few small fall and/or winter samplers and call it a day. Add in a few BH&Gs to that and I foresee total wax contentment in my future.
My fun money focus has switched back to my house and the empty rooms that need furniture and accents. About a year and a half ago, I was on track with decorating our house but felt frustrated with the expense of it all. At the peak of my frustration, I found wax.
I guess you could say I'm refocusing.
That's not going to deter me here in bloggy land though. I hope you guys stay with me as I include some of my home decor wins and mishaps here. I'm thinking before and afters and where to buy type posts.
Today, though, let me show you last weeks' melts.
FAVES from last week:
- Front Porch - lemon honeysuckle - OMGOMGOMG. Top three most favorite ever. There was recently a discussion in a wax group about the impossibility for wax to last in warmers for days. Until this melt I would tend agree with that statement; however, lemon honeysuckle was in my warmer for 48 hours and I could still smell it. It was light after the first day but I was holding onto the scent as long as I could because it was so very good. There's something very beautiful and refreshing about lemon and florals together. It's my latest obsession.
- Rosegirls - sweet lavender sweet lemon confection - again with the lemon. I think I reviewed this in a prior weekly recap or I was talking about it to some waxy friends in great length. This is a keeper.
- CFTKR - pumpkin pecan waffles - much love and appreciation to Lynda for this large bag of PPW. This is the first time I've tried PPW from Carol and I thought her version of it was excellent! It's not my favorite because it didn't last as long as I would have liked - it was strong for about an hour then fizzled quickly after that.
- Streetman Co. Store - long island limeade - I love limeade. (I really love Sonic's limeades) I also love strong wax that smells like limeade, like this one. It has a fizzy note to it that was also enjoyable. Performed very well!

Weekly State of Affairs:
Pending orders:SMT - part 1 (3/30)
SMT - part 2 (3/31)
Something I am in the mood to order is wax warmers, which is funny because it's both wax related and home decor minded. I want new warmers to change out these country cottage style warmers that's not really my aesthetic.
I've been seeing some Scentsy warmers that have a more sleek and modern design that are catching my eye.
Time to add Scentsy to the list of pending orders. It's been awhile.
I hope you're enjoying the last day of July <3
