I just recently had a shipment of Scentsy come in and I was wanting to share some of my scents that I am just LOVING!!!!!!!!!

For my Kitchen:
As much as I would love to be Susie Homemaker and have scrumptious, sweet baking smells enticing your senses all the time, this girl just does not have time for it...... But what I do have to make my kitchen seem like it is wonderful scents that can trick even your grandma!  
Mochadoodle has been one of my favs for awhile now! I just ordered this in a room spray to use in the Kitchen.

So.....Oats & Honey is a new scent that just came out. I ordered this as well in a room spray and instantly fell in love with it! 

For my Front Room:
The front room  is usually the first room that people encounter when entering your home. I like to use a more rich, "country"scent in my front room.
MY FAV!!! This scent is one of my top sellers and I just love it! My sister had actually just bought this in a brick because she loved it so much! It has that spice, country smell yet has sweetness to it as well! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

My Bedroom:
Nothing is better when laying down for bed than a relaxing scent to help you drift to sleep. I usually will turn my Scentsy warmer on in my bedroom about a half an hour before going to bed and keep it on through the night.....this girl still hates the dark so it doubles for a nightlight and sleeping scent!!

Such a clean, relaxing smell!!
This scent has been one of my favs for years!! Throw it in for a little extra spice to the bedroom....wink wink ; )
Some Other Scents That I am Loving!!!

I have also decided to try something new that I am thinking will be a grand idea! I had purchased a Scent Pack back in November for my son's room. The vent's in my son's room is located on the floor, so I would place this scent pack on the vent and every time it would kick on the scent would flow wonderfully through the room. Now forward to now and I still have a scent in the SAME Scent Pack that I started with!! These are the same Scent Packs that are used in our Scentsy Buddies that are too die for adorable!

After seeing how well these Scent Pack work and how LONG they last, I am going to throw one in my car and see how it works for an air freshener! Considering that the Scent Circle is $3 and lats a little while....as does any car freshener that I have ever bought...The Scent Pack is $7 and has lasted for months..... So I figure if it work great then I will be saving some money as well as not having to worry about changing out my scent regularly.

I will keep you updated on how this works. 

If anyone is interested in purchasing any of these products, you can order from my website at 

ALSO.......Check out the Warmer and Scent of the month of June!! They will be 10% off for the month of June!

Product Reviews: Organix

So.....I would just like to begin this by giving a shout out to my bff's, Laura & Mandy for turning me into such a girl these past few years. I did not realize to the extent of this until a few minutes ago while taking a nice, long, luxurious bath.  I had recently purchased some products that I was going to use this weekend while away for a wedding and became eager to try them and jumped the gun...SO GLAD I DID!!!!

Lesson of the day: ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS try a product that is new to you before you leave town with just it!!

So a little something about me: I am cheap. What I mean by this is that I do not spend a penny more if I feel like I can get a better deal some where else for the same quality. I have recently discovered though that you get what you pay for. With that in mind, I have been trying new products that I feel are reasonable in price that one does not have to forsake groceries for.

With that being said, I am going to share some of the products that I have been using and give you my brutal, honest opinion on them. Here we go!!

1) Cherry Blossom Raspberry Instant Lifting Mask:
I know Laura, you are probably SO tired of hearing about this, but I have to list it first haha.... So I bought this product from Ulta back in April. I instantly fell in love with this product... and when I say that I fell in love with this product... I mean I will not go without. I apply this product after taking a shower and before I begin my makeup. I apply a small amount over my face and neck. This product will then go into super Ninja tightening mode. While this product is on, my face shows not one single wrinkle or line. I LOVE IT!! Once a take it off, it does loose a little of the tightening, but my face still is looks tight compared to before. My face is also smooth and soft after use, and sometimes I do not even have to use moisturizer after use. My only complaint is that it cost $9.99, which really forced me to get pasts my cheapness when I bought it, but has been so worth it!

My verdict: A must have!!

 2) Cherry Blossom Ginseng Shampoo and Conditioner
So after trying out the Instant face lifting mask from Organix, I came across their shampoo and conditioner while at Wal-Mart buying essentials for the wedding weekend ahead. They offer all different shampoos and conditioners based on your needs. I was a little hesitant at first to purchase them both, being that they were almost $6 bucks a pop and were extremely small bottles (13oz), which on Ulta they were $7 each. But I finally talked myself into getting them because, hey I just LOVED their other product, so I figured that I would love them as well......
So you know when you hear the expression a little bit goes a long way.....
Well it was just the opposite with this product... a lot still does not go very far! I was SO disappointed in this product! I felt like I had to keep putting more product on and it still felt ratty, dry, and just not good at all. I had to reapply conditioner TWICE and then gave up after keeping it on forever and used my regular stuff. I used almost a two thirds less with what I have been using and it instantly rid it of the mess it was in.

Verdict: I would not waste a dollar on either one of these products. I am honestly half tempted to return them to Wal Mart.

That is all I have time for now, but after this hectic weekend passes I will share more....
