Here ya go. I want youse guys to learn somethin'. An' please take this seriously. When ya read about "wicked candles," don't make dumb jokes about candles being evil. That means they have a wick. A candle without a wick is.....is.....well, I guess it's just a blob of wax.

As promised, here is my follow up report on the pumpkin spice candle.

It's great! It has a stronger scent than the ones I normally buy and I like it. Makes the apartment smell nice. I will be purchasing more of them, likely today. So that's a strong recommendation to all you candle lovers out there.


I feel bad for the candle, it's doesn't deserve bad press like that cause some dumb dumb smears alcohol on her hands and then ignites a flame.

There is candle news to report today!

I invested a whopping $5.64 and got 6 candles. Plus 2 new scents! Cinnamon and Moonlit Orchard.

Good times!

I enjoyed that little pumpkin spice candle so much I took the plunge and got the big 20oz boy. So far it's been burning for 12:25 and it's nowhere close to the halfway point.

Including that one my stockpile now consists of 7 small guys and 2 big ones. I'm well stocked for awhile.

Last night was a sad evening. My beautiful 20oz pumpkin spice big boy candle burnt through its last bit of wax.

However, as is always the case with candles, there is a silver lining. It's time to talk candle stats!

My little guys are $0.94 and burn for about 21 hours. The big boy was $4 something. Let's review its burning schedule:

10.2 - 21 hours
10.3 - 17 hours
10.4 - 14 hours
10.5 - 14 hours
10.6 - 17 hours

for a grand total of 83 hours of joyous burn time.

Divide that by the 21 hours my little guys burn and you get 3.95. So it costs more than 4 small candles and burns for less time. I should stick with my $0.94 friends that treat me so well.

Speaking of my small friends, I just started a new scent: apple pumpkin! What a delightful day it will surely be (don't call me Shirley).
