Weekly Recap; April 30th – May 6th

Not even gonna comment on how fast time is flying. Months just zoom by and it’s so crazy. I’m highly convinced that the older you get the more the days speed up! Like now it’s 4pm and I swear it was just 230 like 5 seconds ago!

This week was pretty good and again I’m including Sunday since I’m writing this on Monday.

I got myself the April Julep mystery box as a bday gift to myself and I don’t know… I’ve been a subscriber for like 5 years and I use to love these boxes but their other ones included makeup and skincare (which their makeup and skincare? I LOVE) but this one included mostly polish this time around and I don’t wear blush so… it doesn’t have any use for me. Not to mention I’m not too impressed with the polish shades that they included. I mean nudes are always nice to have around but I guess I was just hoping for something MORE.

I also finally gave this a light and I LOVE it!

It smells like a watermelon Jolly Rancher! I didn’t end up going back for the Cactus one but it’s still heavy on my mind. I also heard that Bubble Gum was back up on the site last night but when I checked this morning it was all gone. Man that’s quick! Some day I’ll catch another one lol.

But highly impressed with this scent and throw. Not to mention I love this packaging though it’s very similar to the Fall one from last year with the “camping” collection. So I’m a little confused why they used the same theme. But the frosted jars are always nice.

Weekly Recap; March 18th – March 24th

I realized I didn’t write a recap for last last week. Whoops. I don’t know how the hell I just lost track of days like that.

Today I’m a bit tired of being an adult who has to pay bills. Even though I’ve been paying bills since I was 17. Ugh.

I can’t even really seem to remember how this week went.

According to the pictures it was actually kind of busy!

Hello

It’s Starting to Look Like Spring \o/

IMG_5210

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year — besides Fall.

I’m such a sucker for all the pretty shades of pink and all the pastel’s and greens. And oh! Easter! Easter candy, Easter decor, Easter vibes… my birthday sometime’s falls on Easter and I use to hate it cause everything is closed that day so I didn’t really get to go¬†celebrate but it hasn’t landed on Easter in a really long while (though I do worry every year lol) so it’s all good lol!

There are two times a year I look forward to Williams Sonoma seasonal candy and that’s for Easter when they come out with these delicious sour bunnies I’ve grabbed every year since 2011 (pink is grapefruit, green is key lime and yellow is lemon — tbh I only like the green ones) and Halloween when they release the sour pumpkins (which I think overall are orange flavored).

Hello, Recap

Weekly Recap; March 4th – March 10th

Welp, I got most of the cleaning done this week that I was aiming for. There’s still some stuff left to do but the desk, kitchen and my bookshelves are done. Granted I want to move around some more stuff around my desk but I just don’t know what or to where. So for now, it’s done.

Buuuut I gotta wait until next week to get my desktop. So, whomp.

Candle Review; Bath & Body Works Soft

When this candle came out everyone was so excited! I mean the scent notes for this line sounded so good and the labels were ultra cute with their frosted jars and just CAN YOU FEEL THE ZEN AND GOOD VIBES?

Everyone in particular took a liking to this candle the Soft candle which is described as Pink Petal Tea Cake.

The scent notes include: Rose Petals, Fluffy Cake and Orange Essential Oil

Someone on Instagram described this scent as if you mixed ScentSationals Pink Velvet and Violet Sugar wax melts from Walmart together. I’ve never sniffed Violet Sugar so personally I wouldn’t know; but Pink Velvet has been one of my favorite ScentSantionsals wax melts since 2015.

Personally I think this candle is a softer sweeter version of this candle from Kohls that came out last year. I unfortunately only have this small candle and a wax melt of it but Soft from Bath & Body Works definitely reminds me of this scent, just a little more softer and with a lighter scent throw.

Unfortunately Soft and the rest of the candles from that line gained some attention due to the fact that the label was ripped off of another company — one I hadn’t heard of before and from what I had seen people were linking it to a product on Amazon. I have since lost the post that actually went into detail about the situation. There was a candle in the collection called Nook that half the jars didn’t even have a label to, it was just a blank black jar (which the store I had found my Soft at had those label-less jars of Nook).

This isn’t the only label B&BW has ripped off in 2017 either, there were at least 2 or 3 more collections where they had.

Now I don’t know the source behind all of this or if B&BW actually had permission from the original artists and I’m not sure if anyone else knows for sure what was going on either.

But I’m a little saddened that these candles didn’t get the shelf space they deserved as they were really hard to find and people who did have access to them would post on Instagram how they’d buy up to TEN BACK UPS or they’d buy the whole store out making them even HARDER to find (which is really unfair to the rest of us) and they were really pretty candles!

Overall I do like the scent to this, though the scent throw is a bit more on the fluffy sweet side when the candle isn’t burned and you leave the lid on you can still definitely smell the candle and it’s STRONG. I’m not going to go crazy and burn through the only one I have until maybe I am able to get my hands on a back up but since I’m not there’s still plenty of dupes and alternatives to try out — I’m definitely going to keep my eye out for the ScentSationals Violet Sugar to mix with Pink Velvet and see how close that is to this scent!

I’ll keep you all update on how that goes!

(Also can we take a moment to see how differently I edit my photos now compared to 2015 and to last year? Gosh, editing is so weird.)

OHMYFUCKINGOD.

Candle Review; Bath & Body Works Coconut Colada

The Glade fragrances I fell in love with last year came out in spray bottle formats and I’m wondering why I have more of the pink (my favorite scent) and green scents and none of the coconut ones… I don’t remember if I hated it or if I ever talked/blogged about it and that kind of bothers me.

Since this blog is mostly here for me to word vomit and keep a personal archive of my life (this blog has no real niche or direction and it never will) I’m surprised I didn’t review it, even if it was just for myself.

So I decided to review more of things I use/love/hate this year to look back on later.
