Ever just have those weeks where you're so busy that when ye stop the house is a mess, you're low on stock and there's just a million little bits and bobs to do? 🥲
That's today for me but as long as I'm in the mood I loooooooove these days!
I have two candle making workshops over the weekend, one of them was my biggest one ever!! 🕯️ They're so much fun to run but it does make for a bit of a long weekend so I'm welcoming this reset today! I work from home so half of the reset is home-y bits 🏠 I took the doggo for a walk, came home and put a load of washing on, put the dishes away (and cleaned more, as you do 🍽️ ) and sat myself down with a coffee and planned the day 📝
First up was packaging a custom wax melt order for an event goodie bag - I made custom coloured smiley melts in my summer fragrance Elysian (sweet orange chilli pepper and lily cotton musk, honestly so fresh and delicious!) 🍊☁️
I also have a custom wedding order going out next week and the safety labels arrived so finishing those off was next! They picked their fragrance and we did a custom label in their wedding colours, aren't they sooo cute! 🤵♂️🤵♂️
The middle of the month also means it's time to get my monthly candle subscription and wax melt subscription out the door 📅 This month the handmade candle is a brand new scent I've never released before, it's creamy musk and sandalwood 🤤
I've started doing two wax melts for the monthly wax melt subscription and this month was Holl, a fresh earty fragrance of cedarwood, lime, jasmine, amber, patchouli and lily. I also made some wax melts in one of my classic fragrances, Fireside Forêt - it's eucalyptus, cedarwood, amber, lemonleaf, bergamot and geranium 💚
I'm spending the afternoon organising a postal collection of my subscription orders tomorrow, doing a little stock take so I know what I need to order and hopefully plan some for candle making workshops and get them in the diary!
