Bath and Body Items from Beaxsavonsfrais!

This is my second order with Beaxsavonsfrais. I placed my first order a couple of months ago for two regular shaped bars of soap in Pink Sugar and Blue Sugar. I tried Blue Sugar first and loved it. It smelled amazing, was long lasting, and cleaned very very well. So when my beloved Blue Sugar bar finally dissolved and melted away, I knew I had to get more.

Whipped Cream Soap

I was so impressed by the quality of the bar soap I decided to try a few other items as well. Since regular bar soap is a bit drying, I ordered a jar of  Luxurious Whipped Cream Soap in the same Blue Sugar scent. I was excited to try it out, and washed my hands with it right out of the package. I didn't get a super bubbly lather, but it went on smooth. The scent stayed on my skin, soft enough so it wasn't overwhelming, but strong enough to be noticeable once my hands were dry. The moisturizing factor was nice too. I will still use my regular moisturizing lotion, but my hands felt much softer opposed to how they felt with regular soap.
The tops are sparkly!

Speaking of lotions, I decided to order a couple to go with my bars of soap. One to match my Blue Sugar, and another to match the Pink Sugar bar I purchased with my last package. Since it's wintertime I got the thicker lotion in the jar. It's creamy, smells great, and isn't greasy at all. It looks like there is a tiny bit of sparkle in it. I can see some on the inside of the jar, and just a tiny bit made it onto my skin. I know a lot of people don't care for glitter, but don't fret! It's very very light.
I've only just received it today, but so far I think its great. I've got Blue Sugar on one arm and Pink Sugar on the other, and a couple hours later I can still smell it.

Bar of Pink Sugar from my previous order.
Wow that sounds great! Right? Right! Can it get better? Why yes it can! I made my purchase, completely in coincidence with the Beaxsavonsfrais' Black Friday Sale. I thought I was only ordering 4 items, but they doubled my entire order. I got twice the amount of items I had originally expected. Most exciting 50% off ever. Other than the fact that it is extra product, I'm especially excited because I'm leaving for Australia soon, and now my soaps and lotions will last twice as long than I thought.

Pink Sugar Thick N' Creamy Lotion
The cherry on top of my order...the samples! One was a scent I requested. Buttercream. I love Buttercream as a wax tart so I thought I would try it in body care.  I wasn't sure I'd like it enough to invest in a full size jar, so a mini size is perfect. I tried to put a little on, but with the hand washing, and the other lotions I've applied, its a little too much scent overload to distinguish this one right now. I'll try it again in a little while and post an update. :)
Next up, two chunks of bar soap in Pink Poundcake and Victoria's Secret Pink Type. (Guess they found out I LOVE pink! Obvious huh?) Last but not least is a little mini bar of soap in a Green Tea scent. It smells light and refreshing, and was molded to say "Thank You" right on top.

I'll be posting updates as I use the products more, but everything I have experienced so far has been excellent. If you're not concerned about dry skin the regular bars are great, and if you are, the whipped soap is a creamier way to go. The thick and creamy lotion feels great on my skin, and not greasy in the slightest.
Ordering from Beaxsavonsfrais has been a pleasure. The products are amazing, and the customer service is top notch. My questions were answered quickly and the owner is so sweet. The regular prices are good, and the sales are a steal.
If your looking for great quality soaps, lotions and smellies give Beaxsavonsfrais a try. I'm willing to bet they will be one of your go-to vendors, because they certainly are mine! While I love my Bath and Body Works, there is something extra special about Mother and Daughter Handmade Creations.

Respect the Bird! A Short Thanksgiving Day Rant.

Traditionally, there are two major holidays this time of year, Thanksgiving and Christmas (or Hanukkah for my Jewish friends). But has anyone else noticed that "Black Friday" is becoming a holiday in its own right? Each year Black Friday seems to start earlier and earlier, with stories on the news about shoppers get more and more violent. While it's not my place to judge or tell people what they should or shouldn't do, I admit I'm disappointed. We spend an entire day giving thanks for what we have, then get up at the crack of dawn to get purchase more tangible items, and "stuff".
Black Friday isn't for me, but I understand that many are on tight budgets and are able to get more bang for their buck with these door buster type sales. My beef however is that some stores are now opening at midnight Thanksgiving night. Why can't we keep Thanksgiving and Black Friday seperate? As the "chef" in my family after the big dinner I want to relax, not get the kitchen cleaned, take a quick nap then go out and battle the crowd. So this year I decided to "Respect the Bird" and pledged to not let Shopping and Black Friday sales gobble up my Thanksgiving! I know Black Friday can be a tradition for some families, but please, lets keep the two holidays separate. Friends, family, and giving thanks are one of the most important things to us not only as individuals, but also as a nation. The retailers can have their day, I would just prefer that it doesn't run into one of the best holidays we celebrate.
It's a little late, but you can check out Respect The Bird here.

On a similar rant, I love Christmas just as much as everyone else, but can we please wait until after Thanksgiving to be bombarded with carols, commercials and merchandise? Hey Christmas! Wait your turn!
End of rant! I promise :)

While this year was bit different that most, it was still a great holiday. Tyler is in Australia, but our friends Austin and Jess came over for dinner. Since it was only the three of us I made a chicken instead of a turkey, but we still want all out on the fixins'. We had all the traditional favorites, stuffing, green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, and biscuits.
We gathered around the dinner table and watched the "Slapsgiving" episode of How I Met Your Mother. We ate, we laughed, we had a great time.

Vanilla Pumpkin Pie!

Our Thanksgiving spread. Notice my warmer on in the background. Thanksgiving day I melted Vanilla Pumpkin Pie!

While I didn't spend Thanksgiving this year with relatives, I did spend the day with Family :)

Tonight in my Warmer; Iced Lemon Cookies!

My Box-O-Tarts must be a rough neighborhood!

I wasn't planning on writing anything tonight, but this scent has "wowed" me so much I managed to get myself off the couch. My husband is on a business trip for the moment, and my big plans for the evening were to watch Housewives while eating some Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream.
I feel a little bad I smooshed his face
During a commercial break, I was rifling around my Box-O-Tarts looking for something sweet, yet different. I ended up deciding on Iced Lemon Cookies
This tart is from Wahm's Scented Wax in an adorable yellow Troll doll shape. I believe this is one of Wahm's most popular scents. It's because of this, and the glowing recommendations I've heard from both Julie and many of her other customers, that I ended up purchasing it.
I will admit, I was a bit spooked about the "Lemon" in the Iced Lemon Cookies. I don't usually buy lemon scents because they often remind me of cleaning products. But tonight was the night, I was ready to take the lemony plunge. So I find him, and he looks a little worse for wear.  He's been rattling around my Box-O-Tarts for a few months and has gotten smooshed and decapitated. This poor little guy has had it rough!

So now that I have finally given him a try, I am glad to say there is no cleanser here. This little guy, although now in a warm puddle in the bottom of my electric warmer, packs an amazing punch. Sweet and creamy with just a bit of zing, I can smell this enticing aroma in multiple rooms of my apartment.  Which leaves me wondering to myself, why the heck have I not tried this scent sooner?!?!
 I'm breaking out of the box one scent at a time. Thank you Wahm's!
He's not quite as cute now, but he smells even better!

Will it blend? Pink Sugar and Sunflowers!

Welcome to my second edition of "Will it Blend'! Just about everyone loves Pink Sugar, and it is arguably one of the most mixed scents out there. With good reason too, PS makes just about everything smell amazing. But what about putting it together with things that are a little out of the norm? Last time I blended Pink Sugar and Spiced Cranberry, so now I wanted to try something a little different. I decided on blending Pink Sugar with Sunflowers.  
Sunflowers isn't your run of the mill floral. This is a Elizabeth Arden type from Briar Rose Soy Candles. Briar Rose describes Sunflowers as ": Sunflowers* Elizabeth Arden type (women) A refined, aquatic fragrance. Contains a blend of fruity, fresh florals. It is recommended for evening wear." 
My Pink Sugar from Wahm's
The Elizabeth Arden Website says; "Sunflowers symbolizes the sun, capturing its goodness, naturalness and energy."
I have never tried the perfume, but the tarts smell like a lighter sweeter version of "Butterfly Flower" from Bath and Body Works (Which has recently been discontinued). It's a soft fruity floral that I like more than I thought I would. I'm a little surprised that more vendors don't carry this scent, as it seems like one that could become popular.

So does it blend? Absolutely! What I like about this combination (as opposed to my previous one), is that it mixes almost evenly. One isn't overpowered by the other. Sunflowers and Pink Sugar are similar in that they are both sweet scents, but it's a different kind of sweet. PS is a cotton candy type and Sunflowers is more of a citrusy floral. The combination works, as the cotton candy notes mix in so well. It adds an extra dimension to an already complex scent.

The only downside is that perhaps it's a bit too complex now. It's not well defined and can be a bit confusing to the nose. Every time I go out of the room, it smells a bit different when I return. Floral, Sweet, Fruity, then back again. 
If your not into perfumey types this may not be for you, but it is soft and sweet enough that it may change a few minds.

Tonight in my Warmer; Wedding Night!

Wedding Night is a yellow 2 ounce "soy shot" from Sinful Scents. If you haven't tried Sinful Scents yet, I recommend you put it on your list. All of the tarts I have tried have had an impressive throw and lasted quite a long time. There is a wide array of different fragrances available (all with adorable and creative names too!) so there is something for everyone.
I did a interview with the owner Lindsay a few months ago. If your curious, you can check it out here. She is super nice, and is one of those people that make you proud to support small businesses.

Floral scents aren't the most popular type, but for some reason they have always been one of my favorites. I've been in a cupcake and cookie theme for so long, it's a little like coming back to a good friend.
Sinful Scents describe Wedding Night as  "An innocent and loving blend of soft rose petals, baby breath, and white flowers, with perfect accents of clove, nutmeg, patchouli, sandalwood, and Madagascar vanilla."  

This is my favorite kind of floral, it's flowery enough to be identifiable, but sweetened enough to stave off the "Ack!" factor.   The vanilla sweetens it so it isn't so harsh on the nose, and the sandalwood is an excellent base note that grounds the scent by adding extra depth. The throw is strong, but not overpowering. (As a side note it also passed the "husband test". My husband only asks what I'm melting if he doesn't care for it.)
If you are interested in trying a floral but have been turned off by others in the past, Wedding Night might be a good way to test the waters.

Halloween 2011 in pictures!

 2011 has been the best Halloween ever! Tyler and I usually don't do anything, so this year was a lot of firsts. Our first party! Tyler went as Pac-man and I was Inky the ghost.

Every nook and cranny was decorated with spooky touches. Even the ceiling was coated with black and red balloons.
The Halloween inspired treats were incredible! There are cookies that look like bones.

The wall of Rice Krispy treats with SEVERED HAND!! Grosser than that, used Q-Tips! Okay, so they were really marshmallows tipped in a bit of caramel (for the wax) but they tasted way better than the real thing! (or so I would imagine) Tyler ate a few just by himself.

Can't forget about the Chocolate Rats on a Stick!
I admit it. I ate one, and it was delicious!

This has to be the scariest bathroom ever! They were trying to recreate the drug addict's last stop. You name it, it was there, pill bottles (They were filled with candy. Yeah I was curious and looked!) Fake blood, plastic that looked like broken glass, plastic needles, empty cigarette boxes, bottles of booze and even a fake plant that looked like marijuana! The spookiest thing of all are pictures of dead celebrities on the wall (Amy Winehouse anyone?) with Rob Zombie's album on loop in the back ground.

Our Hostess Laura (the Mail Order Blow Up Bride) is an amazing singer. She broke the karaoke ice by singing first. I got up there and sang myself (my first karaoke!). It was probably the worlds most tone deaf version of Come Sail Away by Styx ever, but the audience seemed to enjoy it. Although they had an open bar, so that might have had something to do with the screams and thunderous applause....

 Last but certainly not least, my little mini Halloween pumpkin. I know some people get all fancy and do some pretty elaborate carvings, but I decided to keep it simple. This was the way we always did them when I was a kid, and the lopsided face makes me smile.
I only got 3 trick or treaters this year, (and they all came together!), but this hands down was my favorite Halloween ever.

Off the Bookshelf; Slim to None!

While there is nothing like having a real paper book in your hand, I am madly in love with the Amazon Kindle. Slim to None is a book I found on the Kindle Book Daily deal. Every day Amazon discounts an e book to either $0.99 or $1.99 for best sellers . Just like a Groupon or Living Social deal.
Slim to None was on the 0.99 list. While normally it wouldn't be a story I would have chosen (or paid full price for) it turned out to be more interesting of a read than I had expected.
The story is based on a fictional woman named Abbie who happens to be the top food critic in New York. She is so good at what she does she is constantly being sent out to the best restaurants in the city. Unfortunately for her, eating for a living has caused a quite a bit of weight gain. She is eventually recognized by all the restaurants in town, therefore blowing her cover. Unable to go incognito, she is pulled off the critiquing circuit and forced to write a column.
Willing to fight for her job she is determined to lose the weight to get back to what she loves the most. Food.
I thought the story was pretty interesting, but on just about everything else I'm divided in my opinions.
While I was intrigued about the story of a real sounding woman struggling with real women's issues (while I am personally not obese, hasn't just about everyone wanted that Victoria's Secret model's flat stomach at one point in time?). I was put off by the constant self loathing, and put downs. (If I heard a woman speak the same way about herself in real life I would be pushing her into counseling fast!) I was hoping for a more positive outlook from the main character, but after page after page of self degradation I found it tiresome.
I did however, really enjoy the writing. Playful banters, play on words, those sorts of things. I enjoyed the way the writer spoke. With one exception. Abbie is a food critic, and she loves food. A lot. I get it. When another character says a word in any way food related, or  rhymes with something food related, Abbie goes on a tangent about whatever delectable dish that comes to mind. I found the first few food references interesting, but when it got to the point she describes her eyes the color of brown gravy, I couldn't help rolling my own eyes in response.

Jenny Gardiner
What does a fictional book about a food critic trying to lose weight need most of all? Recipes! Oddly enough, there are recipes in between most of the chapters. And not just any ol' recipes. They are some how connected with the portion of the story you just completed. She bakes a banana cream pie for her boss, and right there, smack dab in the middle of my book, a banana cream pie recipe!

Without giving the ending away, a lot of bad stuff happens, the main character hits rock bottom, and a happy ending! If you are looking for an interesting read, it's definitely worth it if you can find a good deal. I feel like I got my 99 cents worth, even for recipes alone if I ended up hating the book.

The Woman behind the Wax, Interview with the Owner of Crabby Candle Co!

If you are a regular reader of my blog, your probably know I melt a LOT of tarts from Crabby Candle Co. So when I decided to do interviews, I knew without a doubt I had to get in touch with Rebecca and harass her into answering some questions for me. Luckily for me (and for her! lol) she was interested, and no harassment was required. (Just kidding of course)
So I bring to you, my highly anticipated (especially by me) interview with the Woman behind the Wax; Owner of Crabby Candle Co!

Please tell us about yourself!
The Crabby Family
Hello!  I'm Rebecca, owner of Crabby Candle Co. I'm 27 years old, a Taurus, and I like long walks on the beach... oh, wait. Never mind. :-D (Hey lady! Not that kind of interview!!)
I'm a full time stay a home mom to two adorably rotten children- Eliza, who's 5, and Orrie, who's 2- and a wonderful husband, Edward, who's a full time designer/drafter, and full time student going back to get his bachelors in Mechanical Engineering (did I mention we're all crazy around here? lol)  We live in northern Kentucky, just outside of Cincinnati. We're a motley crew, but I wouldn't have it any other way. ;-)
I've loved all things candle related since I was young (probably too young to be lighting things on fire, but oh well- it worked out!) and I've dabbled around making them for about 2 years. A year ago, I became serious about it after a few online friends asked to buy some. The rest is Crabby history... 

 How did you learn how to make your own candles and tarts?
Google U! :-D Funny, but true. I'm completely self-taught, and there's been a lot of trial and error lessons in there, but I'm glad for that because I have learned SO much in the process. I truly don't think there isn't a wax or wick I haven't tried!
What type of wax do you use, and why?
Crabby Cubes!
Actually, that's one thing I think makes our tarts/candles a little different... I make my own tart wax mix (which is a soy paraffin blend) myself - no pre-blends, just lots of testings to get the mix just right, and we think we've found a nice custom blend. And our candles are the same, just with different types of soy/paraffin. Hopefully our customers find that to be a good thing because I think our mix helps the tarts perform well, last a long time, and is easy to clean out of warmers.
You must get this all the time but, how did you get the name Crabby Candle Co? 
Ah yes! It's really a great thing at craft shows- folks love to come up and ask about the name! Oddly enough, I'm kind of an Astrology fanatic (understatement) and somehow, in the middle of brainstorming names with my husband, I threw out Crabby (since my husband and daughter are both Cancers) Candle, and it morphed into Crabby Candle Co. When folks ask if I'm the crabby one I laugh and say no, it's my husband- and it's true! In both senses of the word. ;-) 

Who designed the crab? He's adorable! And the cloth crab with the googly eyes?
 I actually found my crab on a design site and bought the rights to him. I <3 him! And my Clarence the Cantankerous Crab (the crocheted one with the googly eyes) is a one of a kind creation by my super talented friend, Sara (who also owns Like a Fox Photography - did I mention super talented? lol) 

I LOVE the tart sampler idea . How did you come up with it? How do you decide what gets into the box each month?
When I first started, I had a few giveaways of new scents to get feedback on them, and it really helped me to decide which scents to add to our available list. I thought it would be a great idea to allow people to try them out at a discounted rate in return for some feedback on them. I try to put a good assortment in so that there's something for everyone. I've got TONS of samples (because I can't restock without grabbing a few new scents) so I go through them and wax the ones I want to try for that month and if they do well for me, they get added to the list! It's done wonderfully- and I'm glad you like it! <3 
What is your all time best selling scent?
The Crabby Couple!
 Oh geez-  There's a few that come to mind, because Summer scents and Winter scents are so opposite- Summer best seller would have to be Raspberry Lemonade (which tickles me because that's the first scent I mixed myself) and Winter is definitely Pumpkin Cornbread. 

What scent is your personal favorite? And your families'? 

My favorites have changed a lot over the last year because surprisingly (to me at least) my sense of smell has changed dramatically- and in a good way, thankfully. Scents that used to smell like one thing, smell completely different to me as I pick up the different notes a lot stronger now. Never expected that one! But my current favorite that you'd catch me melting if you dropped by my house is Vanilla Lace. My husband LOVES Blue Sugar and Himalayan Bamboo and my kids just want to sniff any of them. lol 

I think the Halloween seasonal items look great. Which one was the biggest hit with your customers? What gave you the idea to make your candles “bleed”?

Crabby's Bleeding Candles!
Thanks! :-) My husband came up with that one! He had seen one a few years ago and thought it was really neat, so I decided to try it out. I worked on them for awhile before I got them just right, and I'm really proud of them! And customers really seemed to love the Braaaiins tarts, and I mean, really- who doesn't love them some good brains?

Any other new scents or products coming soon? Do you have something fun for the Christmas Season planned?
 Ah, Christmas! I'm really excited about the gift baskets we're already getting together. There's going to be a lot of different options- from smaller, more affordable baskets, to all-out-customized baskets- and everything in between. I'm working on getting plenty of warmers in different size/price ranges so that everyone will be able to find something they like!

 You always seem to have something going on. Do you have someone to help you out when there are a lot of orders to be filled? Do you have a dedicated workspace? 
Crabby's Workspace
My wonderful husband is my side-kick. He's the Robin to my Batman (he'd argue that one, but we all know it's true. ;-) ) Although he's not really involved in the mixing/making process, he's my packaging man.  He's also the person I bounce all my ideas off of and get feedback from.  His other job is babysitter so I can get orders poured in the evenings! And I do, thankfully, have a dedicated workspace, which I love and appreciate being able to have. We converted one of our bedrooms into my 'work room'- if not, the 2 and 5 year old would be into *everything*!

Do you participate in any local events such as fairs or markets?
I do on occasion- thankfully my internet sales keep me pretty busy, but I do enjoy the interaction with customers at shows. :-) And I'm always looking for good business to carry my products in their stores.

Do you currently (or will you in the near future) have your products in stores?
I've met with a few places recently about having them add my products to their stores- just small places around the Cincinnati area, and I'm hoping they think we're a good fit. I'm still throwing around the idea of just opening my own store front, but there's a LOT to consider with that one!

Rebecca's favorite warmer
I would love to see a picture of your favorite warmer if you have one. What do you like best about it and where did you find it?
I've converted a heat plate warmer with a metal tart tray, thanks to the ladies at WAU for the idea! (Your welcome ;P) and it's become my favorite, though I've always been partial to the heat-plate type of warmers.

 Do you have a funny candle making, or wax related story to share?
Oh geez! LOL Let's just say my carpet had a run in with a whole bottle of candle dye.. and the dye won! (most of it came out, but we'll still probably have to replace the carpet... and I may or may not have been the one to drop it... uhh, oops? lol) That sounds like something I would do. What color was it? If it were me, it would be guaranteed to be red! The dye was brown. I have a picture of it, but it doesn't look so good. LOL! It's a very unfortunate color brown, especially on a tan carpet! And the worst part is, it fell and like splashed.. almost 4 feet across the room. ugh!

If you had your own theme song, what would it be? 
"Another Day in Paradise" by Phil Vassar -- it makes me smile every time because it's so true to my life- in all the best ways possible. <3 Life's all in how you see it, and it's too short not to laugh at the small stuff. :-)  

And I'd just like to take a minute and say thank you for the great opportunity you've given me to let folks get to know the Addict behind the Wax. I truly appreciate the interest you take in the chandlers (Rebecca had to explain that "Chandlers" means candle maker, from the old days along with black smiths, masons, and potters. I hope I'm not the only one who didn't know that!) who make the tarts and candles you love and I know it means a lot to all of us! <3 

Thank you Rebecca, that's awfully sweet, and means a lot to me. :)

My 1st Delightful Incense Order!

Delightful Incense has been on my list of vendors to try for a long time. One day a couple weeks ago I was looking for an Oak scented tart to play with and blend at home. As luck would have it, Amy (Owner of Delightful Incense) happened to come across my thread on the WAU Facebook page. We got to chatting, and it turns out she was able to order a sample size from her supplier of something she thought I would like.
In the end, the oak turned out to be Apple and Oak, (which I LOVE. If you are curious, you can view my previous blog post about it HERE.) but it was a scent that I had already stock piled. I didn't really want them, because I had so many already. But since she took the time to look around for me, plus I had been wanting to try her product for a while anyway, I placed an order for some other items.
There was one thing I was excited for the most, the Rose Detailed Cup Cake I got in the Birthday Cake scent. (Anyone else notice I've been obsessed with that scent lately?) The entire thing is made of wax, and the rose detailing is beautiful. As I'm sure you can see from the photo it got a little squished on the right side, but that's not Delightful Incense's fault at all. My postman left it on my door step in the sun. (It is certainly cooling down, but Los Angeles still gets a few hot days here and there.) I think he's frustrated with me about all the packages I've been getting lately!

I also ordered some mini pies in fragrances that are old favorites, Pink Sugar, Blue Sugar, and Vanilla Bean Noel.  The fourth pie is in Cake Bake, which is one that's new to me. It is a very almondy cake type, and reminds me of the almond mini muffins that have been a long time favorite in my house.
The pack of mini star shapes is in a scent I've been meaning to try for a while, Toasted Marshmallow! They come six to a pack and look so adorable.

I was also sent a very generous amount of freebies with my order. The paw print is in a scent named Redwood Forest. It's not quite like to oak scents I was looking for originally, but I would have to say it is pretty close. The paw print is a jumbo size, (3 oz I think) so I plan on cutting it in a few pieces and experiment combining it with other scents. I also got Vanilla Waffle Cones in a smoking cauldron shape. A grubby tart in Black Cherry Bomb, as well as Butter Brickle and Pumpkin Apple Butter in standard scalloped tarts.

On top of all those amazing goodies, would you believe she still sent me the tarts in the Apple and Oak scent she got? I placed an order for these other things because A) I wanted to try her products and B) to offset the cost of the fragrance oil she bought for me.
I had assumed she would make them and try them herself, but she actually included them in my package. And not just one or two, but all five! (It's a good thing I love this scent because I have loads of it now LOL) Speaking with her was a pleasure, and her kindness and generosity was incredible. Not to mention her tarts all smell great. Her Apple and Oak is about twice as strong as the Apple and Oak I already had.

If you haven't tried Delightful Incense yet, I highly recommend you do so. This is the kind of vendor that makes small home businesses great.
