The March Melt Box- Flamingo Candles ’17



One thing which I am always looking forward to when a new month started is that there is going to be a new melt box arriving as you know I am someone who loves burning candles and tarts. Of course today I am going to share with you March’s edition I know this is pretty late, however, I have just had some much content to get out to you lovely people. March has an amazing spring theme as some of you may know March is when the Spring starts officially and this month I have seen that the weather has become so much nicer.


If you are unsure what the melt box is it is a monthly subscription box from flamingo candles each box has 8 wax tart melts. They are a combination of old favourites, current scents and some which are still yet to be launched as well as some exclusives to the melt crowd. As a member you receive a wax burner with your first box which allows you to burn the wax as well as a 20% discount code with every box which is useful for us candle addicts.



Rose Velvet & Precious Oud this is the first wax tart which I am not a huge fan of rose as some of you may know if you read my candles or lush haul. This one has made me actually like the scent and for some reason I can not put my finger on the reason why maybe they have done something different with the rose which actually makes me like it. I may have to burn this one very soon as I am loving this on a dry sniff.



Violet & Lime this to me smells like parma violets sweets which is not something that I dislike but this is not one which I am looking forward to burning the most. The reason behind this may be due to the fact that I never really loved the sweets when I was growing up as a child so the scent is not one which I have a huge craving to burn. This might smell amazing with something else which is sweet I am unsure what I will burn yet. 



Pink Lemonade I think that this is one of my favourite scents that I have this month because it smells to me super berry and lemon. This really reminds me of the spring/summer which means that it will not take me long to want to burn this because it smells amazing and I love it when it is the summer. I really need to get what I have in my burners burnt because I want this one ASAP.

Creme Brulee is a tart which is a little bit too sweet for me due to the fact that I am a girl who love the more fresh and fruity scents compared to the sweets. I think if you like creme brulee you are actually going to love this scent because of the fact that it is a true representation of the famous desert. 


Peaches and Cream reminds me of the sweets which used to be cream and peach from the 90’s/00’s which used to come in wrappers I swear you used to get them from the dentist but maybe that is me who just used to consume them after been the the dentist. I used to love to suck them so there is no wonder I used to be at the dentist. I am sure that this is one which I am going to be burning very shortly because it does smell actually so much like these sweets and I wish you could still get them. 


Tangerine Mojito I love this scent because it is citrus with a hint of mint which just takes the edge off. I would love to be able to drink this one because it smells that amazing, This is one which on the days when you wish you was in a beer garden but you can not because you have other things to be doing such as staying in and completing assignments which seems to be the story of my life at the moment. I think that this is one of my favourites in this box. 



Daffodil is one which I am not a huge fan of because I do not know what the flower actually has a scent and for me it was a little bit the same with this tart. I am sure that if you love floral scents this may be one which you will end up really liking more than I do. It may be a good one to burn if you have a large area where you burn your tarts


Orange Pekoe Tea I am not a huge fan of tea in candles which is the all that I can smell in this candle. To me it smells like an earthy but very spicy wax tart however this is no a type of tea which I have managed to smell. This is one which I am sure I will burn at some stage however, this is not going to be one which I am going to be itching to burn. 

What is your favourite scent from this box?

March Primark Haul

Recently I have seen a number of people do Primark hauls and I have always noticed that they have some amazing clothing in for children at not very high prices which is always amazing when you have a child in nursery as things can get ruined easily when they are painting and doing other messy activities.  
Dresses are something which I love to send Jess to in nursery because they are so simple to style because all you need is some tights and they look really stylish. These skater style dresses are my favourites she has a couple of smock dress from Disney which I hauled way back in August which is is always wearing. So I knew I needed to purchase some more in the next size up I saw these which are a pack of two one is a dark blue/black dress with white spots. The other one which you got in the pack was this lovely grey dress with cats that are white and pink on it which i am sure that Jess is going to adore because of the fact it is animals. These dresses do not have sleeves so it is going to be amazing for the summer months when the weather gets a little bit warmer. For the pack of two they were only £8 which I think is a steal for something which she is going to wear so much, 
Carrying on with the cat theme I picked up this grey tshirt which has a cat on as well. This I think will look beautiful with some really bright leggings which will make them less dull. These tops are only £1.30 which means that I really do not mind if these manage to get ruined why doing some messy play at nursery or something like that. I might have to pop back and see if they have any more in this cheap range which we already do not own. 
Another £1.30 tshirt which picked up is this lovely white one which says Daddy’s Little Lady because anyone who knows Jess will know that she really is a  Daddy’s little girl we wake up in a morning and one of her first words most mornings is Dada which is hard sometimes because we know that is her hardly ever there in a morning.  This top is going to be fit her in the summer months which is when her Daddy is not going to be here which means that she can show that she still loves him even though she may not be seeing him a lot. 
Another person Jess really loves is her Grandma because as if you may know her Grandma does do so much for Jess which is amazing because they have one of the closest relationship which I know. This top is actually in 18/24 months because when I went to Primark there was none of them in stock in any smaller sizes and because it was in this amazing Lemon colour and the price it meant that I could not leave it. I am sure that it is going to be one which she is going to get so much wear out of because it will be teamed with dark leggings which will mean that it does not look to summery should she end up growing into this when it is the autumn/winter. 
As I mentioned previously in my Next haul  sometimes for the summer months I want something lighter than denim coloured jeans so when I saw these blush pink with white spots I knew had to pick them up. These were only £5 and I think they they will look amazing teamed with with either a dark coloured top or even something which is very light. I think that these might end up lasting her into the autumn as well because of the fact that she does not grow that much and they are so seem to be pretty large but that may just be my judgement. 
 The final item from this Primark trip is this lovely pink tshirt which again is part of their £1.30 range and it says on it in silver I wish I was a unicorn. I picked this one up because of the fact that I think that unicorns are amazing and they seem to be so popular at the moment which I am not surprised about. I almost wish they had this in adult sizes because it is something which I would wear. I think this one will be teamed with some darker leggings and them she will be off. I am sure that Jess is going to love the items I picked up.
What is your favoutite item from this haul? Also what else do I need to pick up which I might have missed?
