Pamper Yourself: What Candle are You Burning?

Hi! How are you? What are you up to?


Ahem, I had been busy stalking for full spoilers for Love Goodly to see if I want to snap up the upcoming bi-monthly box because I was not in love with the first two spoilers and not motivated to pull the trigger now that full spoilers are out. It is a nice box but its not calling out to me. I is sad about it.

I just sorted out my lip glosses earlier as I am a friend’s lipgloss dealer and she is pretty much set lol!


Also I am sorry but not sorry that I dropped Zoe’s Box of Style in 2017, both the spring and the summer box doesn’t do it for me. However, maybe if the box was discounted more than $20 and I could say that for FabFitFun too!!!

Nina’s Randomly Box is totally not on my radar. Too random and consistently sucky.


I digress sorta because I wanted a three month subscription to Next By Nest as long as I received July’s scent Ocean Mist & Sea Salt. So I was stalking up into the last minute to see whether Nest would spoil the August scent. They did not so I took bit the bullet and started with May. May’s scent is Bamboo and its not a favorite but I like it. And I fared well because I Bamboo is better than what was later revealed as August’s scent for me (Apricot Tea).

I like to drink scented tea but not light a candle smelling like tea. I do like tea lights. 


I digress, today’s candle is…

Nest’s Grapefruit Candles

The little wee black candle was from Birchbox’s Beauty in Bloom LE box. The other two candles were the contents from June’s Next By Nest subscription box. I love, love, love Nest’s Grapefruit scent. It was introduced to me via Burke Box *sniff RIP sniff* as a soap. I have been addicted to treating myself to Nest liquid soaps ever since (I hide this soap behind the cabinet lol).

Proof that subscription box items sometimes do cause obsessions. 

Nest’s Grapefruit scent is what a grapefruit should smell like in candle form. Not nommy, but delicious in a non-nommy way.

I did not major in Marketing and it shows. 


Do you stalk websites for spoilers? Do you unsubscribe if its easier to re-subscribe if you like the spoiler(s)?

Burning any candles (or ploughing through your subscription box stash) recently?
Of course, random commentary is accepted!!!

    I’m only subscribe to mighty fix right now. But I did order some stuff during PSMH boutique had their 75% off over $100 sale…
    And more recently $100 PSMH summer le box. I just purchased it yesterday.
    As for candles I love ones that have amber, or sandalwood, or lavender, or mint…

      Thanks for commenting Farmcat!
      What did you haul at the PSMH sale if you would like to share?
      Your scent comments make me want to light a candle *walks away from the internets on a mission*

    I have been bad earlier this week. Yankee Candles had some votives on sale for 49 cents. I bought 20 of them. Some are going to be sticking stuffers. I just happened to be walking pass a Yankee candle store.

      OMG IMHO you showed more restraint than I would have done 😉

        They have a limit. You can only get up to 36 votives at a time. I had bought out this one scent I truly love.

    I wish I did the opposite with my Next by Nest subscription and started with the June box. I think I would have liked the August scent much more than the May scent which bothered my allergies. Loved the June grapefruit scent. can’t wait for the July scent! 🙂

      I finnished all the grapefruit candles real fast! I still need to plow through the bamboo I am getting to them now. That would just leave the lotiom candles I bought with a code from non-sub box places. Well one of them has a subscription but its like over $300 a year if I recall :/ If there was an lotion candle sub box I would sub to that but I saw a youtube vid maybe I will make my own. I digress thank you for commenting! XOXO
