Alrighty ~ time to buy some Bath & Body Works Candles ~ 2 for $24 plus a coupon, Praline Pecan Cobbler…and a pic of White Barn Pedestals(a Spring must have!)

Mmmm..This is what I am talking about and I am happy to see it at Bath & Body Works and not just Whitebarn Candle Compay  I am going to need to buy a few of the Praline Pecan Cobbler Candles Online…A review online compares it is a repackage of Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, I hope it’s different, but if not, I do love that candle.

Today, Bath & Body Works candles are on sale for 2/$24 plus there is a coupon for $10 off $30 – promo code Sunny2015.  Don’t forget to use Ebates to get an additional 1% back – this rebate used to be higher, but it’s better than a poke in the eye :).

I was hoping that these pedestals below would be online at Bath & Body Works. I love them, they remind me of Margarita Glasses.  These pictures are from White Barn and I have no idea if it is exclusive to them or not, and I am not sure of all the available colors(I’ve seen clear, green and purple).  White Barn stores will have them on display by April 12th(so I am told).  Aren’t they adorable?!?

Retail Therapy ~ a cure for the common cold..White Barn Candle/Bath & Body Works Tarts!!

White Barn / Bath& Body Works New Tarts & Candles

White Barn / Bath & Body Works. New Candles: Southern Sweet Tea, Georgia Peach, Vanilla Bean Macaron. Tarts: Lemon Verbena, Lilac Blossom, Peach Bellini, Oceanside, Pineapple Mango

 

Well, feeling absolutely lousy peeps and if any wax lover knows, not smelling just sucks!! I went to mall to get my teenager some much needed jeans after he split his favorites in half…sheesh!!..I had no plans to check out Bath & Body Works NOR White Barn for that matter..what is the point if you can barely smell(however, tell that to Abercrombie, that store is the smelliest of them all and even reached my nasal cortex like a smack to the head!)..

Anyway, ventured into BBW and did’t find a thang! Headed over to White Barn Candle and alas..jackpot!! White Barn has Bath & Body Works Wax Fragrance Melts (tarts) now!! Hey, When will BBW get these?? And, where have I been?  Well, they are pretty new…  Retail price is 3.00 per round shell(with 4 break away cubes) with a total weight of .97oz.  I find that to be a pretty high retail point for tarts of this size.  As expected and as they should be(lol), they were on sale for 5/$10.  Add in a 20% off coupon and we get down to a respectable $1.60 each. Not bad.  They didn’t have many scents out yet and I posted above what I purchased:  Lemon Verbena, Peach Bellini, Oceanside, Lilac Blossom and Pineapple Mango.  I can’t exclaim that this is the bomb diggity yet as haven’t melted them and my nose is not at its best.  I have had good luck with Bath & Body Works/White Barn candles chopped up and melting in warmers so I think these should turn out good..they are strongly scented on cold sniff.

As for the candles, I bought a few White Barn exclusives…Vanilla Bean Macaron(smells like Cupcake Frosting to me, but nevertheless, I like it), Southern Sweet Tea(similar to BBW London Calling, although I smell a little more sweetness to it), and Georgia Peach(like this one a lot, a great straight up peach scent).  I am really on the hunt for a good straight strawberry like their Strawberry Picnic but no luck..and I wish that they would make a delicious summer blueberry candle..Again, I struck out with that.

All in all, an unexpected wax trip that ended up nicely :).  I think I will go burn some eucalyptus now, you guys have a great Thursday!

 

 

TGIF ~ A little retail therapy for this Beautiful Friday at White Barn Company and Bath & Body Works…think Spring 2015

It’s Friday..Hallelujah, Happiness!!  And, it’s bright and sunny on this Friday in January! Awesome.  Took myself to the mall and stopped(of course) at White Barn Company and BBW.  Found these exclusive candles at White Barn~ Tequila Lime Cupcake(Yell..Tequila!!), and Iced Almond Chai…Mmmm, both are fabulous.  Tequila Lime Cupcake reminds me of a mixture of Yankee Candle Vanilla lime meets Vanilla Cupcake..Delicious and perfect because I am having a Mexican Fiesta Dinner tonight(homemade enchiladas, oh yeah!).   The Iced Almond Chai – very yummy chai meets a frosted almond scent.  I love both!  See pics..The adorable candle pedestal came from Bath & Body Works($9.50), very simple stone colored base that goes perfectly with everything AND it was the only thing that I purchased at BBW(SHOCK FACE)! FYI, these candles were on sale at White Barn for $12.00 each and White Barn does take Bath & Body Works coupons.  Great deal ~ so I used a 20% off too.

White Barn also had this Wallflower plug that I didn’t see at BBW…  We thought that it might be a mistake with the tag indicating it was a “Nightlight”..Lo and Behold, there is a little bulb in there.  I really like this Plug as it is different than most of their nightlight versions.  Very classy looking and great in our lower bathroom. Love it!  The light is subtle, but very nice.

All in all, a great shopping day!! TGIF Peeps! Spring is coming….at least at White Barn and BBW!

Happy Holidays 2014

Hello Wax World,

 

Yankee Candle Glittering Midnight 2014

Yankee Candle Glittering Midnight 2014

It has been a great while since my last post…My GOAL for 2015 is to keep up to date on this blog and hopefully bring some useful information and cheer…

Year 2014 in review...many great new/old candle and wax scents and my favorites for the year(not all – this post would be pages long!).

BBW(Bath & Body Works) Pumpkin Cider Donut

Yankee Candle Christmas Memories, White Gardenia, Berrylicious

Rosegirls Chunk Wax Melts (RG) Monster Cookie Fluff Puffs

Candles from the Keeping Room Spiced Orange, Lavender Zucchini

Haleys Heavenly Scents Grandma’s Hot Apple Pie Noel (OMG – so good)

CrossCreek Candles Honey Bunny 

Partylite Zen Thyme 

 

And once again, the 2014 CANDLE DECOR did not disappoint. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my favorites and I will stick to the Holidays because there would be too much for this post…

Pictured above Yankee Candle’s Glittering Midnight Accessory line.  This line was small, but absolutely perfect for the Holidays(Large Shade, plate, and two different tealight holders).  A very trendy blue color that stood out this year.  It was nice to see Yankee go outside the box with different Holiday colors.  My favorite!  It sold out pretty fast at our store.

Yankee Candle’s Winter Wonderland (the new theme and replacement for My Favorite Things).  Very simple and nice accessories in a white porcelein snowflake theme.  The candles were very pretty but the scents(IMO) did not impress.

White Barn made some very nice Holiday Rustic pieces.  Such as Metal Houses, Ski Slope line and mercury bases.. STUNNING!  I hope 2015 brings a White Barn Candle website that allows for ordering. They continue to expand and although many of their scents are at BBW, they have different accessory and additional wax lines. Their stores are more rustic and reminiscent of going to a Pottery Barn for exclusively candles – more upscale.

Scenty’s Santa Sleigh Warmer – this is an Element warmer which I find better for melting tarts, especially vendor wax tarts.  This has a large bowl to melt large pieces of wax. 30149R1SantasSleighISOFW2014PWS

It has been a great 2014!  What’s in your warmer?  Today, I have RG Frosted Streuselkuchen…perfect for this December day!

 

Cheers xx
