I have been busy with so many different things lately, that my candle making has somewhat taken a back seat. But I have some new fragrances that I need to try out, and some new container jars also.
So, I will be making some more candles real soon. I can't wait! Whenever I make my soy wax candles, my whole house smells delicious, because the smell flows from the kitchen to all other areas of the house.
The main thing that I have to be careful of, is not mixing different scents that do not go together!! Ughhh, I have had some trials and tribulations with that, let me tell you!! LOL
There are just some scents that should never be made together, because the smell lasts for days in the house!! And then there are some that go wonderfully together and I can make them in combination, over and over again!!
Usually, I try to keep the florals with the florals, and the bakery scents with like scents, and the others, sometimes, I will just make one kind at a time, and wait for the scent to disappear before making another. It really is all trial and error, and from that I have learned what ones to do together and what ones to do alone.
Anyway, I will keep you up to date on the new scents and how they turn out... Maybe I will put up some pictures to show you?
Till Next Time,
I made some Margaritas!! Only not the kind you drink, but the kind you can burn!!
That's right, these are actually soy wax candles in a margarita glass, that when the candle is completely burned down, you can wash the remaining wax out of the glass with hot soapy water and re-use the glass!! How cool!
But in the meantime, you can enjoy the lovely scent of the candle. You don't even have to burn it to have the scent in the air. My soy wax candles are so strong that you can just leave them on the counter or table, and they will scent the air around them.
This yummy one is a strawberry margarita, and I have done the wax on the top to look like shaved ice. It is a lot of work, but well worth it when you get a finished product like this.
I have also been making tarts or melts as some places in the country call them, and they are always a good seller.
Okay, back to the grind for me!!
I don't know if any of you remember, but I work in a Hospital, and the girls are constantly looking for great deals on "scrubs" (the comfortable clothing that doctors, nurses and medical assistants wear).
We have found this amazing site on the internet called Scrubs and Beyond, and they have the most diverse selection of scrubs, that we literally spent our whole lunch period looking at all the different styles and designs.
Now, scrubs have come a long way since the plain old light blue or pale green sets you used to see everywhere!! And although you can still get those if you want...why would you want to?? You can have fun and updated designs that make you actually feel good about what you are wearing when you go to work!
They have amazing print scrub tops with cute and whimsical designs, and character prints, or just a stunning pattern with color! If you are specifically looking for print scrub jackets, they have those too! You can wear a cotton Tee, or turtleneck underneath the jackets. Again, they have wonderful patterns, ohhh, and lots of pockets too!! That is an important thing that we all look for!!
Here are some of my favorites, and they don't even look like the traditional medical scrubs:
The thing I like about both of these is, I happen to love black and white, and the top looks like a designer top, not part of a scrubs outfit!! You could even wear this for a night out on the town, it is just that pretty! It is part of their "Koi line".
And the pants are an elastic waistband with drawstring....we all know there is nothing more comfortable than a pair of pants that feels like you have your jammies on!! :) Now these to me look just like a pair of workout pants...not something you go to work in!! So that was a big plus!! And they just look so comfy!!
You could also wear this one out, because you can't tell that it is a scrubs top!! I love how they have really updated the designs here! Everything seems so new and trendy! They also have a full line of Landau medical scrubs which is a well known line if you buy scrubs. They have the traditional Physician jackets, and scrubs, along with shoes and many other items.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know, in case you are also looking for Medical scrubs to wear!
