Stop and Smell the Scentsy

I was provided with compensated in exchange for this honest review.  All opinions are my own.

I am so excited to team up with a fellow Rhode Islander, Amy of My Life as Amy, today!  Not only is she a blogger, but she's also a consultant for Scentsy, a direct selling company offering a variety of personal and home fragrances.  If you know me, you know I am SUCH a candle person, but I am also a forgetful person.  I panic if I think I left a candle lit (especially with two cats running around), so Scentsy is the perfect solution and, in my opinion, it has even more scent options and fragrance than your traditional candle.
There are close to 100 scents to choose from in different forms from room spray to laundry liquid and scent circles (perfect for your car or luggage) to body butter.  You can see a full list of all the scents here, and click on the scent to see what's offered in that variety.  My favorite way to scent a room is with their warmers and Scentsy bars (my candle alternative).  When it melts, the wax is not hot to the touch, and it's completely non-toxic.  I chose the Frosted Shade with the Abbey Shadow insert, and it perfectly fits the decor of our living room.  My scent of choice was Watermelon Mint, very fresh for spring and summer.
I've been using the warmer for about a month now.  We actually connected the Scentsy warmer to a lamp on a light switch in our living room, meaning that every night when we turn the light on, the Scentsy warmer goes on, too.  It's the perfect way to remember to use it everyday!  I am very impressed with how long the bar is lasting.  For me, typical candles burn about 20-30 hours, and I've been burning two of the eight segments of the Scentsy bar for a month now, or close to 50 hours - crazy!
Now, Amy wants you to give Scentsy a try, too!  Enter below for a chance to win a $35 gift card to her Scentsy shop.  Even if you do not win, you should definitely still check out her shop, and for good reason: almost everything in the catalog is 10% off through August 31st.  To shop, click here and go to "my open parties."  Select "order here" and you're good to go!  If you're interested in hosting your own party or hearing about special offers like free shipping, you can email Amy directly.  Good luck and happy shopping!

Fun! We aren't allowed to have candles in our apartment (it's 200+ years old), so this would be a great option.

xo, Carly soak and simmer

I've never jumped on the scentsy train but I sure would like to. I'd honestly like to try any of the scents because I've never had any of them.

(ps - check out my blog for a story you'll like)

Blackberry Raspberry Vanilla sounds like an amazing combo! I'm big into candles these day especially having an indoor pet just to just to freshen the air.
