The Queens Critique: Wildflower Lacquer – Wax Melts

***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***

Hey Sugas!!! Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a passion for candles and wax melts. I believe this is because I have a strong sense of smell. Jason and the kids tease me about being able to smell things that are miles away…lol! I can’t help it, I was born this way.

Nevertheless, candles and wax melts are my thing. I use to spend hours in the candle/wax isle smelling all the candles and those high-end shops…. forget about it. Jason and the kids would just leave me in the mall, run their errands and come back for me. To me smell invokes memories and memories, good or bad, are life lessons. For instance, the scent of warm apple pie reminds of me being in my grandfather’s late wife’s diner. She made the best homemade pies. Vanilla will always be a classic and reminds me of the warm vanilla sugar scent I used to wear all throughout high school. 

I love that I can support indie brands and purchase wax melts, a cleaner and safer alternative to the traditional candle. Wax melts are totally on trend right now and are budget-friendly. Today I have 3 scents from Wildflower Lacquer, Celebrate Good Times, Creaming For You and Spa Day, all of which are currently available online.

The Queens Critique: Anchor & Heart Lacquer – Nail Care Essentials

***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***

Hey Sugas!!! We all know that every great outfits starts with the essentials, right? You remember mom saying “make sure you have one clean underwear when you go out!”, it’s because it’s important. When you hop out of the shower and get dressed, what’s the first piece of clothing you put on? I’m 99% sure its some sort of under garment. Now…. if you don’t put anything on, that’s a conversation for another day, so let’s assume you do. Underclothing is the base.

Your manicure should be no different. The essentials are extremely important. #basecoatsmatter!!! To me, the base is just as, if not more important than the top coat. The base gives the polish an anchor, something to hold on to. It will help reduce chipping and wear AND if you apply one that has nourishing ingredients, you can even start to see an improvement in growth and overall appearance. For me, I NEED a fast drying top coat because as a busy woman, I’m always on the go and don’t have time to sit for 30 mins while my polish dries. Who does???

Introducing the complete, new Nail Care Essentials line from Anchor & Heart Lacquer. Now while you’re shopping for great polish, you can purchase everything you need in one order to take your mani over the top. The Nail Care Essential line includes, a matte topcoat, strengthening base coat, cuticle oil, fast drying top coat and a conditioning base coat.
