Scentsy Giveaway! *closed*

The other night, it was our turn to watch kids for our babysitting co-op (do you do one of these? It's FANTASTIC!), and I hadn't had much time at all to clean my home. In fact, the week had been so insane that I fear my house was beginning to look like an episode of Hoarders.

But, never fear. I had about an hour, which was enough to tidy up the main rooms and turn on my Scentsy candle warmer. I put a nice spice-scented sort of scent in there (Welcome Home perhaps?) and everyone that came by to drop off children commented on how nice my house smelled, and wanted to know what I had been baking.

My evil plan to cover up the fact that the dishes hadn't been done in about 2 days worked! Everyone thought of me as a wonderful housekeeper who baked yummy treats all day instead of the crazy woman that I actually am.

Okay. So maybe it didn't work that well, but my house sure did smell good! And surely nobody noticed the dirty dishes, right?

Now, I am always surprised that everyone in the world hasn't heard of Scentsy yet, because it is just so wonderful, but I know that there are some of you that might be new to hearing about the company. These are candle warmers with wax squares that are melted on the little tray on top. They smell fabulous, and you don't have to worry about the open flame at all, which is very nice. There are literally hundreds of scents to choose from, and every "scent-personality" is represented. I am so a bakery and spice kind of girl. And vanilla. I LOVE vanilla, too. My husband likes some of the cleaner scents--his favorite is one called Casablanca. But I admit I don't ever put it in unless he asks me to, because I am too busy enjoying my Pumpkin Roll, Honey Pear Cider and Sticky Cinnamon Bun scents. Mmmm.

I am also a huge fan of their room sprays, which come in all of the same scents the scent bars do. I have a covered front porch that gets pretty funky smelling sometimes, and I can't have a warmer out there because there isn't an outlet. But I can spray to my heart's content.  And I do.

Finally, one of the best things about Scentsy, according to this ridiculously aesthetic girl (I'm all about form before function: If it doesn't look good, I don't care how well it works, I won't use it), is that the warmers can be a part of your decor and they look great! Again, they have a warmer for every design personality and every room. I've got a rooster one for my dining room, which has lots of other rooster company. I have a music one for my office, because I am a musician and I think it's pretty. I have a Christmas one that I love. And I have a cute orange one for the girl's bathroom.

I also have one to give away. It's this totally cute "Jolly" Christmas warmer. Isn't it adorable?
Kristin Mabb is my amazing Scentsy gal, and she should be yours, too. She lives in Utah (soon to be Phoenix area--are you listening my AZ peeps?) but I've done a party through her all the way out here in Michigan, and I'll be doing another one in a couple months. She's great to work with, and she is generously giving away the Jolly warmer, along with a Christmas Cottage scent bar. The Christmas Cottage scent is a "cozy, inviting blend of Valencia oranges, raspberries, cloves, and spices," and it happens to be one of Kristin's favorites. (My favorite Christmas scent is Silver Bells.)

So do you want to win?  Here are the instructions:

I was just thinking how I need to get some great holiday smelling candles or something going in my house. I really liked the smell of citrus pine. Sounds weird, but smelled so good.

I visited her site (do I need to post three times for three entries?) Scentsy has changed since I've ordered! I'm intrigued by the solid perfumes. The scentsy buddies look fun, too.

Annette Lyon said...

Totally with you--I'm big on the food smells (partially because other smells trigger headaches). One of my all-time faves is vanilla.
