Happy Hygge Holidays

Fire blazing in the fireplace warming every corner of the room while brown sugar and cinnamon waft through the air.  Snow falling gently outside the window. Curled up on the couch wrapped in a warm handmade blanket.  This peace and tranquility is referred to as Hygge. It’s about acknowledging and being in the moment. A certain slowness accommodates this feeling.  It’s about letting go of the craziness of the world.  Putting away technology and connecting on a personal level with family and friends.

During the holidays, Hygge can take the form of baking cookies with the kids or watching your favorite holiday movie for the one-millionth time.

It’s about comfort and contentedness. Hygge is what you make it

For me it all about solitude.  The blazing fire, warm coffee in the early morning hours before the day begins.  Atop my mantle sits my favorite warmer putting forth the warm and comforting scent of vanilla bean, creamy sandalwood, and rich cedarwood, bringing in a little piece of the outdoors inside.


Later, the kids join me with their warm cups of cocoa and cable knit blankets and we gather on the couch to read holiday stories, play board games, make crafts while cuddling up around the fire.  Simplicity is key to capturing the Hygge feeling, not just during the holidays but all year ’round.

Have a safe and joyful holiday season.

Spring is FINALLY Here

Spring is FINALLY Here

It’s been a long time coming.  We’ve waited for what seemed like forever!  Finally, it has arrived.  What, you may ask?  SPRING!  Spring has finally arrived and with it sunshine, warmth, and flower in bloom.  It’s finally time to go outside, get our hands in the dirt and clean up and prepare for a wonderful time of friends, family and food outside.  Depending on where you’re at (I’m in the pacific northwest) you may even be heading to the beach for a swim.  I’ve been twice :).  Sure the water is cold, but hey, just swim fast and you’ll warm up in no time.  😀  

Seriously though, I am super excited that I can finally swim in a lake instead of a pool.  I’m excited about the warmth of the sun on my face as I walk the dog instead of the rain.  I’m excited about all that spring has to offer.  

And I am especially excited about all the new products that Scentsy has come out with.  The seasonal bricks are by far my favorite this season.  The five limited-edition fragrances are inspired by all our favorite summer-time drinks.  My favorite is the MOJITO MAMBO with its refreshing mint and uplifting lime scent.  If you like citrus, this is the one for you.  My next fav is the PINA COLADA CHA-CHA.  I love all things pineapple and coconut and this brick does not disappoint.  It smells just like what you expect your Pina colada to taste like.  Another favorite scent of mine this time of year is lemon.  Whether in cake form (my favorite 🙂 ), or warming it, nothing beats that lively and refreshing lemon scent.  LEMON DROP IT LOW will be your go to scent if lemon is your thing.  And who could forget the Daiquiri?  Strawberry of course.  This fragrance, STRAWBERRY DAIQUIRI DISCO, reminds me of my morning strawberry smoothie.  So yummy and delicious, it gets two thumbs up.  Of course we can’t forget about BERRY COSMO BOOGIE with its fruity black currant and pomegranate smell it is sure to be a hit.  

I have to be honest.  Fall is usually my favorite time of year, but i think this year, Spring wins out!!!  Maybe it’s because its been a long-time coming.  Maybe it’s because the sun is so warm.  Maybe its because of all the awesome Scentsy smells that fill my home daily.  Whatever it is, all i know is I am sure glad it is finally here and I get to experience it in all it’s glory.  

Have a great day and see y’all on the flip side.   

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

To steal the title of the holiday classic, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas, at least in my house.  Our tree is up and even has a few gifts under it.  The shopping is almost done, and for the first time EVER i am not stressed about the holiday season.  I am looking forward to it.


The kids have been baking up a storm since Halloween.  We are excited to have plates of treats for all our friends/family this year…so long as I can keep everyone from eating them first :P.  We have enjoyed some holiday classic movies already and are looking forward to many more.  Tonight we start our Advent calendar.  We do holiday stories…each kid takes turns opening up one book per night until the 24th.  Then we read TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS.  This has been a fun tradition for the last 5 years and it sure beats those cheap chocolate calendars…not that I don’t enjoy my holiday chocolate.  It’s just more about making memories for me and this is a fun way for us to do that.  Even my 15 year old gets into it and enjoys spending time with us. 

 Things are heating up at Scentsy for the holidays as well.  I am SUPER excited to share that we have released TWO NEW FRAGRANCES in our bath bombs.  These things are AWESOME!  I have personally tried LUNA, JAMMY TIME, and AMAZON RAIN and love them all.  But to my surprise, I found JAMMY TIME to be my favorite.  My kids loved it too and asked if they could take a bath after me.  Now to the mix we add SEA SALT and AVOCADO and SUNKISSED CITRUS.  These are sure to be two of my favorites.  I already have many of the Body Care line in the SEA SALT and AVOCADO scent and absolutely love it. 



Also new to the scene are two new BRICK fragrances, SHIMMER and SUGAR.  Our bricks are 5 times the size of a regular bar so you get 5 times the fragrance while saving money.  I have to be honest though, my favorite brick scent this month is CINNAMON CHAI LATTE.  This fragrance is to die for.  It is sweet.  It is subtle,  It is everything you are looking for in a holiday scent.  



This time of year we have a lot of gifts to give.  Let me help you find that perfect gift for your kids’ teachers, the mail man, the swim coach, or whomever is on your list.  Check out the GIFT GUIDE on my website and find that perfect gift this season. 



MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family.  

Bath Bombs, Bricks, and Buddies OH MY!

Bath Bombs, Bricks, and Buddies OH MY!

It’s November at Scentsy and that means holiday time.  It is fast approaching. In fact, if you get paid weekly, there are only 7 more paydays until that fateful day.  But you need not fear, for I am here to help.  Scentsy has added even more excited products to our already awesome line.  Check out the all new Bath Bombs, Holiday Bricks, and our newest buddy arriving just in time for the holidays.  

New this month are bath bombs. Now I am a bit of a self-proclaimed Bath Bomb aficionado.  I LOVE MY BATHS and I LOVE BATH BOMBS. I can’t say enough about these.  They are HUGE in size, uber fragrant and oh so luxurious.  I used AMAZON RAIN and never has my skin felt so silky smooth and I slept so well after using it. My girls climbed in the tub after me and even they slept better and had soft skin.  Even more than that, my bathroom still smelled fresh this morning.  These bombs are the best have I ever used.  

But that is just the beginning.  Scentsy has also brought back our HOLIDAY SCENTSY BRICKS.  Our hand-poured, limited-edition Scentsy Bricks are more than five times bigger than one Scentsy Bar, so there’s more indulgence, more nostalgia and more holiday joy to go around all season long!

 Our newest scent, Cinnamon Chai Latte is a sip of cardamom, cinnamon stick, grated nutmeg and steamed milk.  Get ready to relax and drift away to distant memories as you warm this scent.  

And for the little ones in your life, or those young at heart…we have a very special visitor this holisday season.  Please welcome Milford the Moose.  He is ready for winter with a cozy flannel scarf to match his flannel arms and legs.  Milford would love a warm home and loving family to share the holidays with. 

And stay tuned….starting today we have released our Holiday Gift Guide to help make your holiday shopping even easier. 



I am so excited that October is finally here.  Not only is the weather cooler, but the leaves are changing to all the pretty colors that I love so much.  Bring on the warm sweaters, hot cocoa, and smore’s.  Fall/Autumn is my favorite time of year.

It’s no wonder I started my Scentsy journey 6 years ago this month.   I am so excited to be celebrating my 6th year with such an awesome company.  Scentsy has always cared dearly for their consultants and worked hard to help them be successful.  It has been an honor and a pleasure the see them continue to grow and learn to anticipate the market.  Their sense of style and decorum never fail to amaze me.  We have some of the most awsome warmers on the market available starting today.  No matter what your taste and style, we have a warmer to match.  But more than that….

Scent.  Scent is a powerful sense.  It invokes childhood memories and allows us to re-live those special moments in our lives.  This is something that Scentsy has understood from the beginning 13 years ago.  I still remember smelling my first scent from them, BLACK RASPBERRY VANILLA.  I immediately was transformed back to my childhood, playing with my Strawberry Shortcake dolls with the neighborhood kids.  I remember all the fun we had “driving” the dolls to their business meetings and shopping for that special outfit.  Heck we even went camping in the basement :).  But the feeling of peace and tranqulity, a simpler time is what I felt as I relived that moment in time.  

Fast-forward to today.  I still anticipate with great excitement the new monthly scents and can hardly wait to get them.  This months scent, PUMPKIN CINNAMON SWIRL, is a delictable treat for the senses.  Part of what I love about Autumn is the smells associated with it.  Burning leaves, getting started with holiday baking, and the comfort foods bubbling away in the crockpots and on the stoves of my childhood.  Fresh pumpkin pie garnished with a cinnamon stick and a dollop of whipped cream.  One of my favorite desserts of the season is brought to life with PUMPKIN CINNAMON SWIRL.  Sometimes a scent is so awesome you want to horde it and not share with anyone.  That is how I feel about this months scent.  I have 10 bars on hand and I want to keep them all :).  

This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg of what Scentsy has to offer this month.  Stay tuned for more updates as the month progresses. 

Happy Smelling  

Scentsy Go!

Scentsy Go!

Introducing SCENTSY GO, the new portable fragrance system.  It is battery powered and recharable.  It uses an internal lithium battery for up to 40 hours of use and comes with a USB cord so you can charge it right on your computer while you work.  

I absoulutely LOVE mine.  I take it every where I go.  My favorite place to use it is in the car.  As a homeschool mom of 4 and a dog we travel A LOT.  During the summer months we head to the beach often.  We love playing in the water, building in the sand and just hanging in the warm summer sun.  But all that can lead to some pretty rank smells for the ride home, especially a wet dog.  But I just turn on my SCENTSY GO! and all the bad smells are eliminated.  I can enjoy the ride home as much as I enjoyed the day at the beach.  

Because it lights up and is color changing, it works great as a night light too.  My twin girls are still afraid of the dark, so they have one in their room at night.  What’s really great it that the Scentsy GO will shut off after 3 hours, saving battery life.  If they wake up, they can just push the button again turn it back on.  No more coming into my room and waking me…no more spilled wax or broken warmer lids because they knocked it off in the middle of the night.  It’s a product made for kids

 Get your choice of color:  Silver Band or Rose Gold
