Sexy, Scented, Safe & Yummy

Soy candles are made from soybean wax.  Candles made from soy wax limit emission of harmful soot and fumes that are common in today’s paraffin wax candles.  Soy candles burn more slowly and last up to 30% longer than leading paraffin candles.  This cooler burning candle usually has a natural cotton wick instead of the metal-based wicks. 

These are my favorite Soy MASSAGE Candles – & are SURE TO PLEASE…

100% Natural Body Massage Candle contains Soy, Hemp, and Vitamin E and is environmentally friendly and petroleum free. This is not only a candle but also a massage oil and moisturizer all in one! It burns at body temperature. Skinny Dip(SKD) and Heavenly(HEA).

This tropical excursion scent is a unique formula containing Soybean, Coconut, Almond, Apricot, Grapeseed, and Hemp seed oils combined with vitamin E, Rosemary and fragrance from natural sources. This candle burns at body temperature and the drippings can moisturize and massage the skin.  

This strawberry-liscious edible soy massage candle with Hemp is formulated using natural ingredients for tasty couples play. When burned, the candle melts into rich massage oil that can be drizzled directly onto the skin for a warm and sensual all over body massage. 4 oz.  Yum!

The Hostess SnoBall® Effect

While looking for a good deal on a case of my favorite snack cake, I came across a number of blogs, forums and photo essays on the SnoBall®. I thought my daughter and I were the only ones who craved these. Not! Though some despise ’em. Didn’t know they come in other colors. Even white. I love ’em pink! I’m always spending from $1.29 – $1.49 for them around town. I was told I should find a Hostess Outlet Bakery.. for a good deal! Can’t find one near me.

The Shops Rock!

There was a time the Shops at Willow Bend was a mall that was totally beyond the reach of the every day run of the mill Dallasite.  And getting to it even from North Dallas seemed to take an eternity.  Was like the annual field trip to Sandy Lake from Oak Cliff!  But it’s actually a pretty nice mall.. that has something for every one, including working class moms.  I can’t imagine that the rich and famous bother with checking out the “Offers” page on the Willow Bend website..  By the way, the mall is located in Plano, north of Addison, off the Dallas North Tollway, left @ Park then an immediate right. -Can’t miss it!

Here are select few of The Shops at Willow Bend offers I find quite alluring...

Babysitting Smarts!

My daughter had her very first away from home, non-family baby sitting job last night.  Two summers ago she’d taken a baby sitting certification class, but this was the first time she was officially, the baby sitter.  During our 14 mile drive to the family home, I briefed her on the dos and don’ts.. a sort of baby sitting safety check.   Since the three little ones would be asleep most of the time, I reminded her that text-ing or emailing or talking on the phone would be improper, and most importantly, if someone knocks on the door while the parents are away, don’t answer it.   Three hours later, I met the dad half way to pick her up.  My very happy accomplished teen-aged daughter told me as we drove off.. “Mom, I got paid $30 for doing basically –nothing!”  I told her maturity, presence, and responsibility in a sitter, is not “nothing” to parents.   That’s why they paid you so well.  But if it makes you feel better, you can decline a portion of that amount the next time you sit for only a couple of hours and their girls are asleep the whole time.

If your teen is baby sitting, safety education and certification makes a huge difference in their compensation.  If your teen is too busy to get to a local class, send them to an online course, like Babysitting Class.  Their course is nicely priced @ $17.50 for six classes, and after the Mastery Test is passed you get a personalized Baby Sitter’s Class Certificate and a complete set of customizable sample forms for their baby sitting business!
