Lanae Tatman Guest Post & Scentsy Giveaway! [CLOSED]

I met Lanae on Twitter and lucked into winning one of her fabulous Scentsy products. When I saw some of her current products, I just had to ask her if she wanted to be involved in this. Luckily she did. So here she is!


I love Halloween! I have so many memories of awesome Halloween’s that I really struggled deciding what to share.

Over the years, I went as many different things. My more memorable costumes include a football player, a prostitute (I’m from NV where there are legal brothels), a black peter, and a hobo.

I could tell you about the year I was a hobo and it became my last year trick or treating. I was apparently very realistic (I’m sure my height was part of it) as after the first couple of houses, nobody would give me candy. I ended up standing at the sidewalk while my younger sister went to the doors and did her trick or treating.

I could share the year that my brother’s girlfriend of the time came over, dressed as Aunt Jemima. She was in her 40’s and a very short, white woman. But, she had an awesome costume. So, Dad told us to dress up and take her trick or treating to the brothels. As we had no actual costumes we used our face paint and dressed in all white and all black. After we had walked her through 2 casinos, we took her to the brothels. At our first door, the woman, a very beautiful black lady, opened the door laughing. She told us she knew exactly who “Aunt Jemima” was but she questioned our costumes (my sister and I). As we both drew a blank, Aunt Jemima boldly announced that we were her “black and white peters”.

One of my favorite memories now, is the day my daughter was born. In 2002, I checked into the hospital at 6:45 am. As the day wore on, I watched low budget Halloween movies, one after another. I’ll leave out the gory details, but let’s just say that my little Boo was finally welcomed into this world at 11:18 pm.

We get a little wilder each Halloween and I’m looking forward to more extreme parties as she gets older!


About Scentsy:

Scentsy Wickless Candles are an awesome alternative to regular candles. Scentsy warmers melt our specially formulated wax with a low watt light bulb.

  • The wax doesn’t get hot enough to burn skin.

  • You can reuse the wax until it no longer smells.

  • Easy to change out your scents!

  • Over 40 styles of warmers and over 80 scents.

  • Very safe and affordable compared to regular candles.

You can purchase anytime online at my website. I also offer online parties, so you can share Scentsy with your friends and enjoy host rewards, too!

Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!

I LOVE Scentsy stuff! It smells so good, and I love that it's not as much of a fire hazard as traditional candles. How cute are those Scentsy buddies on Lanae's site? Good luck to everyone!


Jason said...

I love Scentsy!! The cranberry muffin scent on Lanae's page sounds awesome!


Elena said...

That's a great collection of scents for Halloween! I also like the Capri warmer on Lanae's page. Thanks for the contest!

paula michele said...

What a cute warmer. I never realized that you could keep using the wax until it didn't smell. I assumed it would evaporate like a tart does.


paula michele said...

I would also love to try the Mochadoodle Scentsy Bar. I'll bet it smells so good :)


MistySunrise said...

I have never tried scentsy. I love candles and tarts, so I would love to try this.

I've never heard of Scentsy before now, but I checked out their site and I want me a Roarbert The Lion Scentsy Buddy! It's adorable. I might have to try my best at sweet talking my parents into getting me one for my birthday, lol. And maybe the Coconut Lemongrass fragrance foam. I'm always using hand sanatizer and am always looking for new stuff that smells just as good as it works.
Annnnd the Baked Apple Pie room spray because I have an obsession with spritzing smells goods around the house to keep it smelling nice; 2 dogs + 2 cats + 2 men in the house = smelly smelly. ha ha.

Anyways please enter me for this giveaway I'd love to try Lanae's products. And thanks for the chance to!

I love the vanilla suede smell. :)

Amanda Leigh said...

Jessica Rabbit- You just made me have to go look at a few more things! Lol. ;)

Lanae T. said...

Wow! Loving the comments!

The Scentsy Buddies are so much cuter in person! The box they come in even has air holes!

The hand sanitizer is awesome! It does not contain alcohol, so it won't dry out your hands. The scent isn't overpowering either. It's very nice.

The room sprays are very strong. One spritz will last quite a while. Fantastic for pets or bathrooms.

The facts that the wax does not evaporate, you can use it over and over, and there is no flame are all things that make Scentsy special.

You can also get free product by hosting an online party! Or you can sell Scentsy yourself.

I would love to hear from you, whether it's questions or comments!

Ginny said...

Oh my! I am a big time Scentsy addict! I have a daycare so by law can not burn candles, Scentsy helps keep the "baby" smells at bay! I totally love the Jack o lantern!
Thank you so much for this give away!

Ginny said...

Call me silly but the one thing I don't have is on of the small plug in warmers, one for my bathroom has been on my wish list since they came out with them, so I would have to say

Snow Day Plug-In Scentsy Warmer

was my favorite from her site.

Lanae T. said...

Awesome comments!

Scentsy is safe for pets and kids both! The Scentsy wax, when used in a Scentsy warmer, does NOT get hot enough to burn. You can put your finger right in it with no worries.

If anyone would like to host an online party, contact me! I'm happy to answer any questions you may have!
