TLC Voxbox

I got my awesome TLC voxbox in the mail today and it's the best one yet!!! Here is a picture of what I got...

I actually have use for most of this stuff so I was rather excited.
The soap smells awesome , the puffs and neosporin to go are perfect being its summertime (which means more outside time) and allergies are in full effect. The free icecream ( i chose tiramisu) its amazing and the shell card is going to save me some money!!! The only thing I really have no use for is the wrinkle compact because well I don't have any wrinkles lol. Over all this was a pretty great box!!!

Yummy Melts & More

I was fortunate enough to win  a giveaway on this businesses Facebook page and I was stoked. I am always ridiculously excited to try new companies!!! Anyways I won 2 of her brand new blended flower drop tarts and she has asked me If I would be willing to test out 2 of the new scents they were thinking about carrying ...and of course I said YES :) This is what I got ...

A 4oz tart in Cotton Candy/Pink Sugar-First off this thing is HUGE (as you can tell from how it fits in my hand) and it is adorable with the flowers on both sides. As far as the scent goes it smells really good. I don't catch much of the cotton candy I feel as if it's just a sweeter version of Pink Sugar. Pink Sugar is one of my favorite scents and this one does't disappoint. I think maybe more of the cotton candy scent might come out as it melts because after letting it cure a week I am able to smell it more now than I did when I had first got it.

4oz tart in Lilac/ Lavender- Though I rather have a sweet floral this one isn't bad. It's true to name and smells just like fresh flowers without smelling to "old ladyish" ( don't act like y'all don't know what I'm talking about lol).  This one would be PERFECT for spring!!! These are actually two of my Mamas favorite scents so I passed this one along to her because she will enjoy it much more than I would. 

Now onto the 2 "tester scents" ( done in a Glade warmer)...

I was in love with these ass soon as I seen then because well they are Hello Kitty shapes and I LOVE me some Hello Kitty ( I even have a HK tattoo on my leg) they are sooo cute!!!

1.5 oz tart in Rock Candy- This one to me didn't smell like rock candy but it was AMAZING it was tangy and fruity. If you can imagine if sweet tarts and grape laffy taffy had a baby this is what it'd smell like! On warmer it smelled even more like grape laffy taffy. I got about 7 hours of scent out of this tart the first 4 of which was SUPER strong.  This is the 2nd best grape type smell i've EVER had. Not true to name in my opinion but it was awesome regardless:)

1.5 oz tart in Mexican Fried Icecream - When I was a kid we used to go to this Mexican restaurant and on special occasion my Mama would order this for us kids and scent smells exactly like what I remember the real thing to smell like. (Isn't is awesome when a scent can remind you of the good ole' days?!?!) It is a very creamy vanilla scent with some hints of spice (i'd guess cinnamon/nutmeg) with an ever so slight bakery undertone. It is mouth watering delicious!!! I got about 6 hours out of this with a medium/light throw and then it started to get a slight play-doh smell so I dumped it. I think this would be better as a blender scent ...Mixed with a little marshmallow it would be PERFECT!

I look forward to trying more from this company in the future :)

Lenea's Wax Creations

I was lucky enough to be a winner of the milestone giveaway (so many fans on her page) for this company and I was SOOO excited! I haven't had anything from her in what seems like forever and what I had from her in the past I loved...Not so mention the owner of this company is awesome lady :) When I got my prize in I was blown away it was so much more than I was expecting. I got this amazing Easter basket (she also sold these during the holiday) and it was adorable!
And I had to take a picture of it before I took the outside bag of because it was just that cute lol (don't judge me)

After I took the outside bag of I got hit in the face with waxy goodness! After I unpacked it all I couldn't believe how much was actually in there!
Not only did it have a BUNCH of wax it also had candy and a cute little stuffed animal that my sick 2 year old (poor baby just can't catch a break from all these evil germs) freaked out over. As soon as he seen in he stole it and went and cuddled it and feel asleep...

 I've had this for a few days now and he still loves it and refers to it as "his baby" <3
Now onto my all my goodies...

Mini mustache load in strawberry.coconut, blueberry,doughnuts,cookies and cream and sugar (wow what a mouthful lol) This smells like a fruit cake ( or I should say what I think a fruit cake would smell like) with a dollop of whip cream on top. It's sweet cakes and creamy. It also looks awesome all covered in mustaches lol
Mini loaf in Blended fruits,cookies,sweet candy,sugar,chocolate and Cream-This one smells kinda similar to the other loaf but without being as bakeryish. Its a sugart fruit party with tiny hints of chocolate. I melted some of this already and I loved it... The cookie scent comes out more on warm than it did on cold sniff.

Waffle w/butter tart in Blended fruits, butter and cookies- This is what I have melting right now and it smells delicious . Even though its a bakery scent the fruit and butter mixed with the cookies makes it smells sooo good. It isn't super strong but its been going in my glade warmer for about 8 hours now and I can still smell it.

Waffle w/butter tart in baked apple, banana, raspberry and chocolate-This one is adorable (picture below) to me it smells like a bag of tootsie pops. You get the chocolate type smell with hints of fruit and sweetness. Not the biggest fan of this one but it (along with the few others I didn't like) will find a new home with my awesome mama.

Cookie tart in Peach- This is a light not super sweet peach. I tend to not care much for peach (unless blended) because it tends to be super strong and fake smelling but this one smells AMAZING!

Chunky tart in blueberry , apple, banana, sugar cake- What do ya know another bakery scent I actually like! This is so so yummy it almost smells like this glazed apple banana bread I made with just a tiny hint of blueberry. I have a feeling that once I melt this I will have to make some of that bread lol.

Tweety tart in frosted vanilla grahams - First sniff of this I got an instant headache it is so strong I could't even smell it again to try and see what it smelled like because I was to scared lol ...Sorry :(

Flower tart in honeysuckle- This smells awesome. It's a light sweet floral...and I LOVE sweet florals!

Doughnut tart in butterscotch bread pudding- This is another that I personally don't care for. It is so much of a bakery scent for me but I got a small hint of the butterscotch.

Scent shot in sweet orange & chili pepper- This is one of the most interesting scents I have ever smelled. At first you smell the awesome orange scent but then you get the under tones of pepper. For some reason this scent really made me wants to eat Chinese food lol. I can't wait to see how this one smells on warm but I won't melt it until my Mama gets a chance to smell it because I think she will LOVE it.

Scent shot in fruitylicious- The name fits it perfectly . This is an awesome fruity blend if you like fruity scent you'd love this one!

Shot in vanilla bean- This isn't your typical super sweet vanilla scent.It almost has a clean type smell to it but its vanilla at the same time. I can't really explain it but it smells wonderful. If you aren't typically a fan of vanilla scents I think you would still enjoy this one.

Shot in Jamaica me crazy- This is my first time ever smelling this scent ( It seems to be pretty popular) and it is the bomb lol. It almost citric but it's also tropical. Super fruity and perfect!

2 mini shots in grape gumdrop- I have had this from her before and I LOVE it so I was sooo happy to see this in this basket! It smells like grape soda with a twist and it throws like crazy. I melted 1oz and I could smell it for 2 days ( 8 hours the first day and 6 the next). Whenever I order from her this would be on my MUST have list!

Mini shot in Graham crackers- This is spot on it smells just like graham crackers. I was scared of this one after I didn't like the frosted vanilla graham but I was very pleasantly surprised. Even my husband liked this one and that's surprising for him because he tends to only like clean smells.

Sugar scrub shot in Blackberry Jam- This smells yummy almost exactly like the blackberry jam a lady I know makes. I've had her sugar scrub before and its awesome you can feel all the oils in it which is always good,

Bath Salt  shot in eucalyptus- This smell reminds me of medicine and I was like hmmm I'll never use this but then someone had told me eucalyptus is good for a cough and my kids are both really sick so I figured it was worth a shot. I put half of this in their warm bath and all the while they were in there they hardly coughed. I could feel the vapors just being in the bathroom with them (reminds me of vicks kinda) I have to get me some more of this just to keep around from times like this!

This has to be one of the best things I have ever won and I can't wait to melt though the rest of this stuff!!!

Southbound Soap Company (Wax)

A friend had shared a giveaway that this company and after checking out their store I just HAD to try them. I love a surprise (and I like to try new scents which when I choose I never branch out) so I let the owner pick everything and she didn't disappoint! Everything smells wonderful  and it's cute as well :)
This is what I got ...

Right off the bat the packaging had me because I just thought it was adorable.

First think I went for in this batch was a chunky wax melt in Fruit Limeade this thing smells awesome!!!
It smells just like if you took red Hawaiian Punch and Sprite and mixed it together.  It's very sweet and fruity and reminds me of summer time. It is also very colorful which is cute (photo below).

Pink Serendipity Lemon Cake - As most of you know by now whenever I see cake (or any bakery type scent) I get scared. I really am not a huge fan of them in general but this one isn't bad at all. I think the Pink Sugar and Serendipity mellow out the cake smell. My 3 year old (who loves to smell all my wax when it comes in) say it smelled like "yummy yummy cake" and he wasn't lying!!!

Green Clover & Aloe- This is one of them scents that if I seen it I wouldn't choose it for myself but I love it! Its a clean slightly earthy smell. My husband "approves" this one lol :)

Hawaiian Paradise- The name suits this scent to a T...This is a very tropically type scent! It's floral yet sweet with a citrus undertone. I literally dumped out what I had in my warmer to pop one of these bad boys in ( i got a 6 pack). It wasn't super strong but I was still able to smell it in 2 rooms( open floor plan kitchen and living room)  plus halfway up my stairs.

Black Raspberry Vanilla-  Raspberry and me don't get along ( I think because its so so strong most of the time) and tends me make me nauseous but this one doesn't. I was actually surprised at how much I actually ended up liking this one. It  reminds me a little of them blue raspberry blow pops but not as sweet.  It smells amazing and it's pretty (picture below).

Easter Bunny Burps- This one smells like spring flowers with a little something extra to it. If you like floral scents you'd love this one!

Southern Sunshine- I think this smells like mango and some sort of citrus. If the bunch this would be my least favorite. It smells good but weird (of that makes sense) like something just seems off about it. I will still melt it though and see how it is on warm!

 It's always kinda scary when you try a new vendor (I've had bad luck with some) but overall I am very happy with this stuff. I would definitely buy from this company again and I look forward to trying some of their bath and body products ( her shop offers soap,sugar scrub, Solid lotion bars & lip balm) when my budget allows me too! You can find their Facebook page here as well as their Etsy shop here ...And as always if you decide to fan their page or place and order make sure to let them know Binky send you :)

Jewelry In Candles review and reveal!

I have had one candle from this company about a year ago and I didn't have a pleasant experience but I wanted to give them another. I worked out a deal with one of their awesome reps Tanya to give them another try...I was pretty excited!!! The turn around time was a little bit long for my liking ( I ordered the 5th and I didn't get my candle until the 27th) it really wasn't to long of a wait. I am just not used to waiting that long and I tend to be pretty impatient lol. After spending what seemed like forever to pick the scent I wanted to try I went with Island Hibiscus...
This candle smelled amazing! It is a "sweet" (just a hint) floral. Sometimes floral scents are just to funeral home type smelling for me which isn't the case with this scent. If you aren't someone who is into the old lady type flower smells you would still LOVE this one. This candle burned perfect for me (unlike the last one) so that was a huge plus!My only issue is that it didn't have much of a throw and I would have loved for it to be a little strong. I lit this for 7 hours on the day I got it and then the next day for 5 hours. So after 12 hours of burn time this is what I saw...
Now anyone who has ever had one of these jewelry type of candles know how exciting it is when you see that foil...and also how hard it is not to dig that beast out! With this company you are able to choose what type of jewelry you want be in a ring (you can also choose your size), a necklace,earrings or a total surprise. I chose to get a ring because that tends to be the only type of jewelry I actually wear. This is the ring I got...
The stone  is actually a very dark blue  even though it looks black in the picture. Even though it is just costume jewelry it is still really pretty and sparkly! Overall it was a much more pleasant experience than the last candle and I would be willing to buy from this company again. I would love to give their jewelry tarts a try next! If you'd be interested in giving them a try ( if you haven't already) get in touch with Tanya she's super sweet and very helpful. You can find her Facebook page here as well as her JIC store here...And like always if you go like her page or make a purchase make sure to let her know that Binky sent you :)

Aunt Smellman (2)

So not that long ago I received an R.A.O.K (Random Act Of Kindness) from the owner of this company and absolutely loved it, so as soon as her shop was open I HAD to place and order! This is what I ordered( as well as the awesome freebies she sent <3)...

Apple Jack and Peel- This one smells like apple, clove and maybe orange. It is real strong on cold sniff!

Frosted Lime Cupcake- This is an awesome creamy sweet lime sent...I don't much smell the cupcake but thats fine with me!

Victorian Christmas- This smells exactly like spice drop candy...Sweet and Spicy!!!

Fairy Dust- This one was a sample and I am oh so sad that I didn't get more of it. This smells sooo good!!! It's a floral scent with hints of musk and a smidge of sweet.

White Peach and Hubiscus- I wasn't sure this combo would be that great but it is wonderful! It sweet and lightly peachy ( sometimes peach is just to strong and overpowers everything else) with floral tones.

Pink Pantaloons- I love the pink sugar scent and thats what this one is. It is like Pink sugars twin sister that is just a little bit more sassy lol :) If you are a fan of pink sugar this is a must try!

Frost and Snowdrops- This one doesn't have much of a smell to me. It just smells like unscented lotion...I am going to let it cure and see if maybe I can smell something.

Cashmere Sweater-I love this scent... It's floral, fresh and slightly earthy with a light sweet vanilla. I can't wait to melt this one!

Dr. Feelgood- This is what a clean man should smell like. It's earthy and musky with very light floral undertones.

Downy Feathers- This is straight up the smell of Downy fabric softner. This is probably my favorite clean linen type scent I have ever had and my husband LOVES it as well. If you are a person who loves the clean type scents you will love this one!!!

Kismet- Oooh patchouli how I adore thee. This one smells like patchouli, citrus and lavender. It is an interesting combo that on first sniff I didn't like ...but the more I smelled it the more I started to like it. I am very curious as to how this one will smell while melting.

Georgia Pink Magnolia- I am not huge on straight floral scents but since I live in Georgia I figured I would give this one a shot...And I am glad that I did. This isn't just floral it has  a sweetness to it that makes me want to keep smelling it lol #creeper

Strawberry Shortcake Vanilla Bean Noel- If you can imagine what a strawberry laffy taffy wrapped around a twinkie would smell like thats what this one is (at least in my head).

Palm Leaf- Omg so many awesome scents in the order and this is another. It's a crisp clean almost green type of scent. I need more of this scent for sure!!!

Marshmallow Ambrosia-  I love anything with marshmallow...So so sweet and delicious!!!

Lunar Eclipse-This one is my favorite out of this order . It is sweet and floral ...a girly scent without being too girly ( if that makes sense) . It reminds be of the Ed Hardy perfume I wear. I MUST have more of this scent!!!!

I have only had stuff from this vendor twice and already I can say she would be in my top 3. You can check out her webpage here as well as her Facebook page here.

Stinky Dancer Soap

So I had came across this small soap company so I bought a bar and as soon as I used it I was HOOKED! After using it for 2 days I had to place a second order (even my husband likes this soap). Your skin doesn't feel all stiff and dry after using these bars unlike many store bought ones. I have tried a few homemade soaps but these are by far my favorite...So I wanted to share this with you guys! This is what my order consisted of

Electric Watermelon- Not only does this soap smell awesome it is also cute. 
It even has little poppy seeds to look like watermelon seeds. This soap smells just like watermelon hard candy...YUM!

Amber Romance- This is a dupe of a popular VS scent and smells exactly as it should. It's a light sensual smell. This one I have to keep away from my sister in law lol :)

Brown Sugar & Fig- This one smells awesome its ever so slightly sweet and creamy. I don't much smell the brown sugar but it's pleasant regardless.

Laveder Martini-  I had no idea what this would smell like and even smelling it it's hard to explain. It's almost a clean scent (but not) with a citrus undertone. It is a unique scent but it a good way!!!

Sweet Innocence- Yet another one that is pretty to look at (they all are just the two stood out most)
 This one smells just like a baby smells so clean and powdery. It makes me remember my boys being little babies and makes me smile :)

French Lavender- Straight Lavender scent...floral and clean!!!

Bedtime Bath- If you have kids you know what the bedtime bath scent is. Another one that reminds me of when my kids where little babies but this one is my favorite of the bunch. It is such a amazing smell of  lavender and powder. 

If you have yet  to try handmade  soaps I highly recommend it. I am in love with this company :)

Aunt Smellman

Oh how I love wax and trying new (to me) vendors. The owner over at Aunt Smellmans was kind enough to send me an R.A.O.K ( Random Act Of Kindness) so the very least I could do is let y'all know about her stuff!!! Now I have no idea what these are supposed to smell like ( I don't look at scent descriptions so that my opinion is totally unbiased) This is what I got...

Pouty Pucker- This smells almost like those little dum dum suckers. It is a sweet scent (without being overly sweet) with some light hints of  maybe vanilla.

Tooth Fairy- This is a straight up sweet candy scent with a light citrus background. I prefer this one over Pouty Pucker which to my nose is kinda of similar.

Frost Bit- Crisp and Minty...That is the best way I can describe this scent. I am not the biggest mint fan so this one found a home with my Mama who loves it :)

False Eyelashes-This scent confuses my nose. I can't really pinpoint what I am smelling...It almost smells like cucumber melon with flowers and a tiny bit of mint thrown in. It is unlike anything I have ever smelled but it I like it!

The Keys- This smells like a eating pie on the beach lol. It's a tropical citrus smell with a VERY light bakery type scent. This one is my second favorite of the bunch!

Fountain Of Youth- OMG this scent is AMAZING and my favorite of all of them(even the hubby likes it). It it a very clean scent with very light hints of sweet and floral...If this was a perfume I would without a doubt wear it!!!

Orange Blossom- I expected this one to be  real sweet and orangey but it wasn't. It smells what I would imagine the actual tree to smell like...It is a green smell with very light floral and sweetness to it. I am curious as to how this is going to smell on warm.

Raspberry Macaroon- When I seen this one I was like nooooo because me and raspberry don't mix (the scent makes me nauseous) but this scent is yummy! It has more of a toasted coconut scent than anything with light berryness. After smelling this I really wanted to eat some Macaroons lol :)

Kim's Watermelon Honey- This one smells like straight up watermelon Jolly Ranchers with a twist. My 3 year old thought it was candy and kept asking if he could eat it. If you like sweet scent you'll  want to try this one.

Not only does this wax smell great it has (imo) the perfect texture and I can't wait to start melting it *shakes fist at cure time*. You can find her facebook page here as well as her website here . If you happen to fan her page or order make sure to let her know Binky sent you!

Taco Seasoning

I used to be one of those "I'll just buy the packet" of taco seasoning people until  I made my own for the first time and it was sooo amazing  ( in my opinion) I will NEVER go back to buying those packets again. After posting about making it on my personal Facebook page several people had asked me how I made mine and they enjoyed it so now I have more people asking for it...So it figured I would just post it here for everyone who may want to give it a try!

Taco Seasoning-
1/4 Tsp. Garlic Powder ( NOT garlic salt)
1/4 Tsp. Onion Powder
1/4 Tsp. Dried Oregano (Preferably the "mexican" kind but the normal stuff works just fine )
1/2 Tsp. Paprika
1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
1-1 1/2 Tsp. Cumin
1/2 Tsp. Sea Salt
1 Tsp. Black Pepper
1/8 Tsp. Cayenne Pepper

2 1/2 Tbsp. is equal to one packet of seasoning and works for 1-1 1/2 lbs (depends how much seasoning you like) of  meat.

Front Porch Candle Co.

I was fortunate enough to win a gift card to this company. It was extra exciting because this is a new to me company. I have heard wonderful things about their wax but I had never had never had any. A HUGE plus is that shipping is free (us only). This is what I chose with my giftcard...

Moonlight Kiss & Snugglin' Under The Stars - This to me is a straight up sexy time smell (my sister in law agrees) It reminds me a lot of Moonlit Path from bath and body works. It's floral , earthy, musky and ever so slightly sweet. I am oh so glad that I got the chunky tart (the big one) in this scent because it is amazing!!!

Pink Mallow Clothesline- This is straight up sweet and clean. On first sniff it is sweet but then you get the clean linen type smell in the background. It sounds like an odd combo but it awesome!

French Vanilla & Oak- I love anything that is Vanilla so I was most excited about this particular scent. It is a feminine yet masculine scent. You get the earthy oak with hints of sweet creamy vanilla. It almost reminds me of a sweet sandalwood.

Princess Gown- This is a straight up strong perfume scent. It is kinda hard to describe its floral with ever so slight earthyness and perhaps some vanilla. If this one is as strong on warm throw as on cold I will be one happy lady because it smells sooo good!

Kudzu-First sniff this smells like grape but then the more you smell it you get hints of greenery and flowers. This is interesting but in a good way. I am excited to see how this one smells when melting!!!

Original Gain and Marshmallow- This smells straight up like a sweet sugar laundry soap...Exactly what you would expect it to smell like. I think that the laundry soap companies need a soap in this scent because I would FOR SURE buy it. Again and interesting scent combo but it WORKS!!!

I am so glad I was able to finally try this vendor these scents were all wonderful! I will (when I am not so poor whenever that is lol) for sure order from this company again. You can find their Facebook page here and there website Here. As always if you decide to fan their page let them know Binky sent you :)

Jessicas-Scented-Temptations (2)

I know I just did a review on her stuff last month but she had an AMAZING offer than I just could not pass up. She had a few "surprise grab bags" up for sale for $12 shipped (sorry these are already gone) mine came with a whopping 24oz of wax!!! It came in this pink bag ...
and was stuffed with all these wonderful goodies...

It had the following;

Pistachio Pudding Cake- I had this for my last review from her and I still love it and I melted it as soon as it came (dont judge me ) lol. It smells just like the pistachio cupcakes that I love from one of our local grocery stores.

Mint Chocolate Chip Icecream- I current have this melting  and the throw isn't that strong (which sometimes mint it bad for doing) it smells to me like those Andies Candies ...Minty chocolate yummyness.

Cranberry Sauce- This to me doesn't smell like cranberry sauce (canned nor homemade) but it still smells pretty good. You can catch a light tart (which I assume is the cranberry) and sweetness without being super sweet. 

Blue Hawaiian- I have had this from many vendors and this one is just as great as the rest. It is a sweet tropical type scent. Pineapple. cherry and coconut among other scents I can't quite put my finger on. If you like sweet fruity tropical scents this is a MUST try!

Sex On The Beach-I had this from one other vendor and from them I didn't care for it but this one is awesome. It definitely a citrus scent with perhaps hints of peach ( I don't look at scent descriptions so that my opinions are 100% unbiased) it's sweet and delicious!

Fluffy Pink Candy & Funnel Cake- First sniff it's pow the funnel cake (bakery scent) but after smelling it more you catch hints of the fluffy pink candy ( I've had her FPC before and I LOVE it highly recommend it if you love sweet candy type scents) I actually can't wait to melt this one. This is a scent I would have never picked for myself because I tend to shy away from anything that is "bakery" but this one is nice!

Now the next ones I got (they came packaged together) were adorable so I had to show y'all ...
 I love the sparkly snowflake I almost don't want to melt it lol
The snowflake is in the scent Peppermint Bark which smells like sweet creamy peppermint!
The little Christmas trees are scented in a well Christmas Tree (lol) and they smell like piney and wood. These to being in the same package was a pretty good scent combo!

Sweet Tart- I also had this scent last time and again it smells just like sweet tarts candy.

Mullberry- This is a new scent to me so I am not exactly sure what it's "supposed" to smell like but it smells is light scent but its fruity and a little bit sweet.

Candied Ginger- Another new to me scent and its awesome!!! It is very citrus and a little sweet...It almost smells like Lemonheads with a punch of spice.

Fresh Coffee- This is the only one of the batch that I don't much care for. To me it smells like truck stop coffee...Which for those of you whom haven't had it ( i ran the road for 5 years) it burnt and not all that pleasant. I had a coffee scent from a different vendor that I also didn't like so maybe I just don't like coffee scents *shrug*

Macintosh Apple- Smells exactly like fresh red apples...sweet and juicy LOVE LOVE LOVE this one. It really made me want to eat an apple lol :)

Pineapple Supreme- Sweet , fruity with a little tang...Doesn't smell much like pineapple ( i had a combo of this and another scent last time) but it still smells good. It just really isn't what you expect it to smell like NOT that that is a bad thing.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcake- Oh no not another bakery scent lol  This one smells like a cupcake and tootsie roll had a baby which = Yummy. Another bakery scent that I don't dislike *le-gasp* but this one actually found a home with my "little" brother who fell in love with it. Awesome sister award to this lady :)

Welcome Home-I have no idea what this scent is supposed to smell like but it is pure yummyness...I smell a sweet vanilla and maybe a little carmal with some type of( I want to say) fruit and a very light hint of some type of baked good and maybe some cinnamon. Whatever this combination is it is a WIN.

and the last scent was Caramel Popcorn- Honestly I was scared to open this one because in my head I thought it was going to smell like stale sweet popcorn but boy was I wrong. You know those triple flavor popcorn tins you get at Christmas time (butter/cheddar/caramel) it smells just like when you open up one of those. 

Overall I am very pleased wit this grab bag!!! You can find her facebook page Here and her Etsy shop Here and as always if you happen to fan her page of place and order from her shop let her know that Binky sent you <3

Crockpot Pineapple Chicken

I am one of those cooks who hardly measure so these measurements are all approximate. If at the end it does't taste right tweak it (thats how I cook and by smell) if it is to sweet add more soy if its to salty add more honey ... Just play with until it is to YOUR liking :)

2.5 lbs chicken breast cut into cubes
1 red bell pepper sliced in strips
1 green belly pepper sliced into strips
2 cans pineapple chunks in natural juice
1/2-3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 onion finelly chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. ginger ( i use powder)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 tsp pepper flakes
4 tablespoons cornstarch

Pour juice from canned pineapple chunks into a small mixing bowl add in soy sauce, pepper flakes,garlic, ginger and honey, whisk to combine. Add cornstarch and stir until combined.
Place chicken, onions and pineapple chunks in crockpot pour "sauce" on top and cook on low 4-5 hours. Add bell peppers the last 20-25 minutes of cook time.
Serve over rice.
