So, I woke up yesterday feeling like I'd been hit by a truck. Not in the traditional sense of that statement though - normally I associate it with a head cold, but I literally hurt from head to toe - like muscle/joint pain. It is so ridiculous that I'm calling an orthopedist today as soon as they open.

I've been dealing with pain in my arms/shoulders since Tyler was born - the right side worse than the left. I can't lift my right arm shoulder height without bringing myself to tears which sure does make dealing with two toddlers difficult. Basic hygiene things are tough too - like shaving my arm pits - literally makes me squirm in pain... but is absolutely required - so it's time to make it happen without the tears, right?

While I'm dealing with trying to get in to see this new doc today - I thought I'd tell you about something that I tried this weekend (on a completely unrelated topic) and LOVED.

I want to talk to you about Scentsy Dryer Disks - they are AMAZING! Let me give you some back story.

When we bought our house - it was not set up for a gas dryer, which is what we have because our home in Texas was. Since gas appliances are cheaper to run - that was what our whole home in TX used. Anyway, we had a handyman come in and change over the hookup for the dryer for us... but when he did it, somehow it wasn't capped off or something and our dryer now is much like the outside in terms of climate and smells.

What I mean is that on a humid day, if I accidentally don't get the clothes out of the dryer when the cycle ends - they will come out a little bit damp. They'll also smell a bit like fresh cut grass on the days when John does yard work... so this is a problem. I've had some experience with Downy (or I think that's the culprit) leaving some oily residue on our clothes too... so I needed to find something different to help add some good fragrance to our clothes.

I sell Scentsy as most of you (all two of you still reading) know, but I hadn't tested out our new laundry products yet. I bought samples for people to look at during my parties, but hadn't tried them because they were my party samples. Well, in a moment of desperation while drying my sheets yesterday - I decided I HAD to use this product... I couldn't sleep on sheets that smelled like grass anymore!
So, I dug through my party supplies and got this little friend out. It's part of the new Scentsy Layers line of products for your laundry and bath. I think all of these products are fabulous, and have used several of the other items - like the bath gel, and lotions. The dryer disks come in Quiver or Coconut Lemongrass scent. I happened to have Quiver on hand, so that's what I used.

Our clothes, and laundry room smell amazing! I'm so in love with these - I fully plan on buying a BUNCH of them to have for my personal use, but also to give as gifts. I sincerely hope that when our new product catalog for the fall comes out that they've expanded the scents that this is available for purchase in.

Additionally, in those same two scents - we have Washer Whiffs which can be added to your laundry during the wash too. I'm going to use up my current scented detergent and get some that is not scented so that I can add in some lovely Scentsy scent in both the wash and dry cycles! I truly am a new convert!

This whole line of bath & laundry products is amazing - the bath products come in about 6 scents for each item - so it's a bit more of a selection than the laundry items right now, and I think they are wonderful. It's sort of fun to have some of your favorite and most popular scents carried with you throughout the day! 

I couldn't be more excited to be this in love with another of the products that I'm selling - of course, I shouldn't be surprised because Scentsy ROCKS! Not only do the products rock, but being a member of this company is truly changing my life - I'm about to hit another big goal this month, and make a special bonus... I would love it if you'd consider helping me reach that goal by making a purchase - large or small, every purchase helps!

I am so amazed that in the short time I've been a part of this company, I joined in February... I've achieved so much. For someone that is NOT a sales person, I've truly had some amazing success! I've sold over $1,000 in products each month - averaging my commission to be between $250-$300 or more! Would you like to join in with me and turn your scents into dollars? I would absolutely love the opportunity to coach you and walk through this amazing journey with you. 

I'm also in love with our Velata - chocolate fondue - products as well. I've personally tried the milk chocolate and dark chocolate fondue with family and friends... and it is amazing. You can't put a price on how good a little bit of chocolate makes you feel as a tired weary lady/wife/mother/employee/sister/daughter/friend... even more than that, when one of your friends is in need of some comfort and time with friends - there isn't a better way to have some extra special fun than some of your favorite treats dipped in warm chocolate. We offer milk chocolate, white chocolate, dark chocolate, and caramel milk chocolate... so you can customize your experience to suit your favorite flavors!


  1. I need to know about the dryer bars...I've been eyeing them for a while. :) What does the Quiver scent smell like?

  2. Stopping by from Jenna's Journey. So sorry you are not feeling well. I hope you can get in to see a doctor asap!

  3. Excellent product placement aside, have you thought about calling the plumber to ask about if the connection is correct, or, can be corrected?

    I just can't help but wonder if the scent of cut grass also means that outside allergens are making their way into the fabric, which may cause some sinus/allergy problems? And not just grass, but other pollutants. Just a thought.

  4. Those sounds awesome. I might have to look into these. I am obsessed wtih yummy laundry smells.

  5. I haven't tried any of the laundry products yet, but I'm getting some when I close out my current party.

  6. I love Scentsy so much! Your blog is so cute!

  7. Visiting from the comment challenge. :)

    I've never heard of Velata, but it sounds so good!

  8. Those dryer disc sound really cool.


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
