Haley's Heavenly Scents

I first ordered from this site about a year ago. You can read about the scents that I ordered here. I enjoyed this site so much that I thought I'd order again. Her shipping time is by no means fast (she took a month to get these out to me) but to me, the pluses outweigh the minuses. She has a TON of scents, various lovely shapes and she's always always affordable. 

Let me share what I got this time!


Peeps - Sugar, sugar, sugar... and perhaps a bit of marshmallow. This smells sweet and bright. It perks you up wonderfully with a bit of a sugar rush, but isn't cloyingly sweet. 


Creme Brulee - You might expect this to be super sweet but while it is definitely a desert scent, it's more of a subdued caramel scent. Much more sophisticated than the Peeps smell. 


Apple Cinnamon - A great cinnamon scent that's not to harsh on the nose. It's sweet, but not overwhelming at all since the apple adds a bit of tartness. A perfect scent for the fall (or to remind you of the fall). 



Rosemary Mint - Ugh. I don't like this one at all. That's not the fault of Haley's though... Unfortunately, I had to purchase this to discover that I really don't like the rosemary scent. 

Toasted Marshmellow - Since this is another sweet dessert scent, I don't really distinguish it too much from Creme Brulee. If any difference, I'd only notice the lack of a caramel scent. 

Overall, my favorites have to be the apple cinnamon (tart + sweet make a great combination) and the Creme Brulee for when I just want a really nice sweet scent.

Featuring... Blush Colored Shorts

Do you ever NEED to have a certain item... then time passes and you look at an old wishlist and wonder... why did I ever want this? Despite all those items that I'm really happy I find after a good long while, I'm not sure why I ever wanted a pair of blush colored shorts!
Featuring...Blush Colored Shorts



Tokidoki cotton t shirt / Belted shorts, $19 / Rupert Sanderson / Cath Kidston , $54 / Pendant necklace

I suppose, ultimately, I'm happy that I didn't get these shorts. Maybe if I got them, I'd be sick of them already.
