I was going to save this for the podcast that Brett and I are going to start but we have been saying that for about 2 months now so I guess I’ll just utilize the perfectly good website I have.
Bretts parents were in town from England and we went “out on the piss” all weekend long. Friday night we went out to dinner with my parents and drank LOTS of wine, Saturday we went to brunch at Tower Cafe and then went all over the place downtown. Sunday we were supposed to drive to Yosemite but the weather was terrible so we did the next best thing, went to the Old SugarMill. One winery in and Mel (Brett’s mom) said she was feeling drunk It took me a few more stops but I eventually got on her level. I also got ulcers on my tongue from the red wine which has never happened to me before. The only reason I knew what it was is because Brett’s mom gets the same thing and said something about it the next day and I said, “You know what? My tongue feels exactly the same!”
After wine tasting we went to the County Fair at Cal Expo. I have never been to the County Fair before which is surprising because I love the State Fair, but I think in my head it was super po dunk. WRONG. It looked just like the state fair only smaller. They even had all the exhibits inside where you could shop for a bunch of shit you don’t need. That’s where this story is going by the way. We each got a beer which cost us $54 …….for 4 beers……
Let that sink in.
We walked into the exhibit and I immediately saw a young couple surrounded by what looked like candles from far away. I am OBSESSED WITH CANDLES. I will spend my entire paycheck at Bath and Body and catch me standing in line when doors open at the annual candle sale. Brett has reeled me in on that front because I’m essentially just burning my money. I will light a candle in every room and let it burn, not even one at a time, I will burn 5 candles at once like I’m Lil Wayne and have money to blowwwww bloowwwwww. I started getting real excited as we approached the booth only to figure out it wasn’t candles, it was a Scentsy booth. A woman I used to work with got me my first Scentsy for Christmas and I’m obsessed with it. The wax smells SO FUCKING GOOD and lasts forever. I didn’t know much about it though, like I’ve never seen it sold in stores so ended up buying wax from Bath & Body just to mix up the scents. The Bath & Body wax smelled good at first but didn’t last very long. Okay here it comes, I’m going to rip off the bandaid….
I don’t even remember what I initially said to the people at this booth or how the conversation got to where it did, but all I know is I woke up the next morning with emails that said “Here’s How To Jump Start Your New Business”. YUP, I bought into Scentsy. I can say confidently that Brett was there gassing me up so he is equally responsible. All gas. no brakes. So I got drunk, and did something I swore I would never do which is buy into an MLM. I can’t tell you how many people I have to decline WEEKLY that are trying to sell me Arrbonneee (too many R’s, N’s and E’s I know) or It Works. The difference here is I know a lot of people who like things that smell good. When I went to the Bath and Body candle sale this past year and posted about it, I had a ton of comments from people who also went, so I know there is a market for things that smell amazing. So I figure if people are going to buy things that smell good, they might as well buy them from me and pay less for something that will last longer? Here it is guys, I’m laying it on the line….I already bought into it so I”m just going to own it and see what happens. I tuned into a live stream for the couple who sold me on this over the weekend and I was a little hesitant to even watch because god only knows what I said to them, I have a faint memory of Brett saying “She has 20,000 followers on Instagram”, so embarrassing. I watched for about 30 minutes and can honestly say I have no idea how it works or what they were talking about but I did have time to look through the order booklet AND THE WEBSITE THAT IS MINE (HAHAHAHAHAHA) and they have so much stuff I want. They have a ton of wax burning thingys (see I have no idea what I’m talking about) but the things you burn the wax in that are so cute and they have helllllllla scents that I’m trying to buy. They have Disney scents and products and sports products, they basically have something for everyone and if I don’t sell a thing, I don’t care because I’ll just make Brett buy things for me, through me. Like FUBU only FMTM. Same same, but different. The kids I don’t have are so lucky I don’t have them because I’d be sending them to school with Scentsy catalogues. Okay for real, if you want to see what kind of stuff you can buy, CLICK ON MY LINK. I”m never in my life going to ask anyone to “join my team” and I might never talk about this again but if you want to give it a shot and if you like it, I’ll be around. Now excuse me while I go have a serious talk to Brett about letting me purchase things when I’ve been drinking. #RAGE
