A Day of Pretty Packages!

Hey all! I hope everyone has had a great Thursday! One more day until the weekend! Today I got 2 amazing packages in the mail that I wanted to share with y'all!

1. The first package was from my sock swap partner Jenn! I was so excited when I found out Ashley was going to be hosting a sock swap, and I was so thankful to get paired up with such a wonderful partner!
She sent me some wild zebra print knee high socks! Along with hot chocolate and a sweet note! And can I also just say that her tissue paper is so cute?!  Thanks Jenn! I really appreciate it and I hope you like yours as much as I love mine!


2. If any of you recall, a few weeks back I won Let's Be Preppys Scentsy giveaway! I have been anxiously awaiting my package ever since!

Ashley Miles was the sponsor of the giveaway and she was so great to work with! She even let me pick whatever warmer I wanted! So of course I picked the "Welcome" warmer! It has a pineapple on could I say no!?  Sorry the picture is so dark, so you might not be able to see it, but the warmer is an ivory color with a crackle, antique-y finish! I love it. And let me just tell y'all...this warmer is a lot bigger than what I thought!  It's the perfect size to set on a hall table or side table.

Anyways, to get back on track...I won a mid-size warmer, fragrance foam and a scentsy bar. The fragrance foam is a hand sanitizer! YAY! I always carry hand sanitizer with me and I'm so excited to have one that smell so good! It came in the Skinny Dippin' scent and it is a blend of apples, melon and pears. It smells so yummy!  The scent block is the "Welcome Home" scent which smells kind of like apple cinnamon. A perfect scent for fall!

If any of y'all are wondering what exactly Scentsy is...they basically make wickless candles. The warmers have a light bulb inside that heats the wax instead of an actual flame. How it works: place a few wax chunks from the scentsy bar in the top of the warmer. Plug it in and turn it on.  It took about 15 minutes for my wax chunk to totally melt.  Our bedroom is about 20x20 and it scented the whole room and it smells great!

If any of you are in search of a nice gift for the Holidays, a Scentsy warmer would be perfect!  I definitely recommend it! Check out Ashley's website to see all the different products available! 

Do any of you own any Scentsy products? How do you like them? And did anyone else take part in the sock swap? It was so much fun!
