As our hauls and product features are quite popular we thought it’d be fun to share with you all the products that we bought and burned (or melted) each month. We’re not in any way bragging and we’re grateful for every ounce of wax we have but we all know how much candle junkies love seeing what others use or where they shop.
I was over the moon when our friends at Love Aroma sent me a Yankee Candle Love Your Candle Care Set. The set contains some handy tools that will help you love your candle for longer, an Illuma-lid, Wick Trimmer and a Candle Snuffer. Now I know a lot of you are probably thinking why would you need all these? For a while I thought the same but now that I have them, I know I’ll always use them. Read More

A while back I had been chatting to a friend on Twitter who was interested in being a sales rep/consultant for a company, and who knew my reply of “I dunno about them but I’ve heard great things about Scentsy…” would lead to great friendships and pretty things.
I won’t bore you will all the soppy details but since then I’ve been lucky to get try Scentsy for the first time ever and have made some great friends, and also bought lots of fabulous Christmas presents too.
As you probably already know I’m quite partial to a wax tart or two (or ten million) and like to have a different scent going everyday and pretty much all the time, this means that I tend to go through tea lights like craaaaazy; two sometimes three a day. Since I got my Scentsy warmer I haven’t used one, they’re genius.
Scentsy warmers are so safe, they’re designed to melt scented wax with the heat of a light: (Region 1 (USA/Canada) use a light bulb for heat, warmers in Region 2 (UK/Europe) use an LED light and a heating element.) It really is a crazy genius idea especially for those with kids or pets or with silly friends who like to pick up the very hot metal dish on your oil burner just “to see what it smelled like!”
Look at my fabulous Tiara warmer, it’s like they made it just for me (Princess Samantha!) 😉
See, when it’s on the light shines through and gives such a pretty glow, almost like a night light (which again would be great for kids) I just love it so much. I now wanna get a different warmer for everyday of the week.
I’m so happy with Scentsy and my warmer; great customer service, fabulous consultants, amazing scents and products (the Scentsy Buddies, are so freakin cute!)
The day after I received my lovely products to try out I put in an order for some Christmas presents, seriously that’s how good they are, and they make the perfect gift for anyone. Not only that, but I threw out my (really old and not so pretty) oil burner with the friend burning metal dish on it.
What I love most about my Scentsy warmer is that it does just that, it warms, it doesn’t get hot so you don’t have to worry about burning yourself or someone getting burnt, the wax melts don’t get hot they just melt at a lower temperature and stay warm. Which leads to my second observation, I think that fact that they don’t get super hot means that the scent in the wax lasts longer. I can’t really explain it but I think that maybe higher the temperature the faster the fragrance will evaporate… I’m noticing that I’m not changing my melts as often as I would in my regular oil burner. They’re just great, I’m hooked.

When two girls spend most of their days dealing with work, babies and boys they rarely get much time for themselves, not that they complain(too much). So it’s the little things that make them happy, like relaxing with a cup of tea and lighting the wick on a brand new candle or when they read about new candles being launched.
Sure they get excited about shoes and throw cushions like most girls, but candles are a whole different story with Sarah and Sam.
They both have stashes of wax tarts and have great discussions about which ones are nicer and about mixing different scents together.
They even talk in code about which candles they’ve bought and will buy so as not to get “the look” from the men in their lives who have to live with the addiction, and who usually have to foot the bill for the candle splurges.
They have it pretty good though; an actual serious problem to Sarah or Sam is when their clicky things run out of fuel or when a company discontinues one of their many favourite candles; tears have actually been shed.
They know everything about candles; what to do with them and what not to do, they know millions of tips and tricks and where to go to get the best deals.
That’s why they started Vanilla&Lime, so they can share all of their borderline pyromaniac wisdom and knowledge with you, along with some reviews, product features, tips, tricks, giveaways and general chit chat about pretty things.
