I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, smelling the Holidays is almost as good as opening presents ๐Ÿ˜‰ I know when about my Seasonal Scents (Winter Holiday or not) I think of Scentsy. If you’ve never heard of Scentsy, I worry that you might have been living under a rock since, oh I dunno, 2004. Scentsy is most famous for their wickless candles or as I know them “wax warmers” but they have come an amazingly long way to offer you a multitude of ways to enjoy their amazing variety of fragrances.

I received a few Scentsy items from my amazing Scentsy Consultant, Thea Wheeler. She’s prompt, always has a big selection on hand (like for last minute shoppers like me!) and did I mention she is just awesome to talk to! She’s super sweet and takes care of her customers- what more could I ask for!

That being said, order HERE by December 18th to get your Scentsy products by Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

The Scentsy Barย  was one of the first items available for purchase and I’m sure one that most people are familiar with. Scentsy Bars comes in more scents than I can even begin to tell you! With new scents being released and old ones being retired every season. If you’ve got a favorite scent combination, even if you think it’s an odd one- it probably exists. OR you can pop in wax pieces from two different wax bars and create your own concoction! With these waxes, the possibilities are endless and I always like to have several on hand!

If you’re ever in a pinch and need your house to smell “Scentsy Good” (because all other brands are second best, let’s face it!) you can grab one of their newer Room Sprays. If I’ve got family or friends about to pop over for a visit, I usually have time to smooth out some toddler hand and put away dirty dishes- that’s about it! As a busy mom, convenience is key so these ultra concentrated room sprays are a major win in my book! Plus, you get nearly 3oz for only $8 which lasts us about a month between using our warmers!

And let’s not forget your vehicle ๐Ÿ™‚ Scentsy has you covered there too. These Scentsy Circles give off just the right amount of scent to keep your car fresh and smelling great without being overpowering. You can get these Circles in a wide variety, much larger than any other car fragrance company I’ve ever seen!

Last, but not least, I can’t not mention the latest Scentsy sent innovation, Layers by Scentsy. Layers is a personal scent line created with all the Scentsy magic that contains bath tablets, shower gel, shower cream, body lotion, body butter, body spray, washer whiffs,ย  Dryer disks, hand soap, hand cream and my favorite- Solid Perfume. Everything to make you smell just as delicious as your house, but you know, a little different ๐Ÿ˜‰ The solid perfume has a non-greasy, light feeling and absorbs into the skill quickly for long lasing fragrance.

Overall, it’s hard to go wrong with Scentsy! & when you’ve got a rep. as great as Thea standing by you, well, it’s a no brainer! Aside from these AMAZING stocking stuffer ideas, there are many other great deals and sales going on. Like Scentsy Buddies. These are ADORABLE stuffed animals with scent packs inside! You can get two for the price of one right now, a deal this mommy is going to have to do since we lost our buddies! There is also a buy one, get one deal on Fragrance Foams that are super compact to fit into stockings or that extra space in the gift bag you need to fill ๐Ÿ˜‰

One of the best things about the Holidays is all the Seasonal Scents. Vanilla, Berry, Cinnamon, Apple- they all just scream Holiday Cheer to me! With little ones, a giant candle burning for several hours isn’t always the best idea. An open flame is just too tempting to little fingers. That’s why I love Candle Warmers and Wax Melts! The biggest selection I’ve ever seen is at CandleWarmers.com.

The first thing I picked out was my scents. Apples & Spice and Merry Berry Plum! They almost sound good enough to eat! CandleWarmers.com carries over 40 varieties of Jamie Clair Wax Melts. Each is available in 2oz or 4oz size and are a great deal! These large ones retail for only $5.99

Each 4oz “block” is sectioned into 12 pieces and each piece last for a very long time! I’m only on my second piece. I keep my warmer on for just a few hours and the scent lingers all day. When I’m ready to switch to a new scent, I let the wax cool, then I just push on one side and “pop” the piece of wax out.

Now let’s get to the warmer. I wanted to do something festive, BUT I didn’t want to have to pack my warmer away after December 25th, so I went with snowflakes. This warmer illuminates and melts the scented wax at the same time. It uses an internal light bulb to melt the wax.

I also wanted to get a warmer that would go with my decor after the holidays, so I picked out this Vintage Turqoise one. This is one of their new designs and I have to say, it’s my favorite of the bunch! They have 43 different warmers so if this one isn’t your style, I’m sure they have something to fit anyone’s personal style.

Aside from the wax blocks and warmers, CandleWarmers.com also carries standard jar candles and warmer lamps,ย  plate candle warmers, candle crock warmers and more. Everything you need for the wickless candle experience. Be sure and check them out this year for your Seasonal Scent selection!


Batist Dry Shampoo- a Texan’s Best Friend


Hi, My name is Alison & I love in Texas, where we like big hair. Okay, that’s a stereotype but for me, it’s pretty true! That probably comes from my lack of natural volume, but some time in my teen years, I discovered Dry shampoo
& I’ve been addicted ever since!

It all started with Batiste. My first can was much smaller than this one, 1.6oz (their travel size) and in their “Original” scent that smelled a bit like baby powder. That wasn’t too long ago, but now they have 10 different varieties and they carry the same small size and this larger 6.73oz can- perfect for my addiction ๐Ÿ˜‰

Recently, I got to try their Tropical scent. They describe it was “coconut and exotic”, It smells a little sweet to me also. It’s hard to describe but the words “beach party” come to mind. It smells wonderful! Batiste is SO easy to use, just hold it several inches (I’m talking maybe a foot, lol) away from your hair and spray it on your roots or wherever your hair is looking lack luster or in need of a pick-me-up. Sometimes, I hold my can too close (I get excited) and I just shake my hands through my hair a little bit to help spread out the mist around.

No matter how I’ve styled my hair, Batiste leave my hair looking great and my curls intact, which I really appreciate! I can’t wait to try some of the other new scents they have, especially “Wild” that comes in leopard print bottle. WANT!

Be sure to check out Batiste online HERE to find what scent/formula is right for you!
They are also on Facebook & Twitter.

When was your first Batiste experience?
