Announcement   April 3rd, 2018. I FINALLY have WiFi/INTERNET today!!!! They came yesterday morning and turned it on and then they messed up the wires outside and it all went black, so the tech came back at 7:45pm and fixed it!!!! Hallelujah.
I’m so sorry if I have been unreachable. I actually don’t own a cell phone, so imagine how out of touch I was. I was like a fish out of water... surrounded my moving boxes to the ceiling. Ahhhh.
My new printer doesn’t arrive until tomorrow from Amazon prime (because I couldn’t take the printer, yeah. So I need it to print out shipping labels and candle labels. Tomorrow, I’m going to be working like a wild woman. Today, I have the plumber coming and I connecting utilities. I just wanted to update you all. Thank you so much for being so understanding and such amazing, supporting customers ,kindred Book nerds, & friends. Watch out world. Here I come.

March 31st, 2018 is MOVING DAY!!!! (Eek! I haven’t slept all night and I’m a twisted mixture of terrified, excited, and more anxious than imaginable.) Today, my son Sci-Fi & I start our NEW life and adventure in our townhouse in a new town. I can be a single mom. I am a damn good mom and I can do this. Life is changing and once my divorce is finalized, I will feel a million pounds lighter. Good bye to the poisonous environment that our life has been stuck in for so long. I’m embracing this unexpected shake up in my life as a blessing. I deserve so much better. I deserve to be acknowledged, respected, and loved. I’m rambling. Monday morning (4/2/18) Nox to Lumos is back- knocking out orders like whoa. This is my only income & I want to show myself and my son that I am enough & that I can give him a brilliant life. New future: here we come!
Nox is my outlet and I am dedicated to make the best candles that I can possibly give.
Thank you, everyone for the support and for understanding the delay. I love you so much. ❤️

Thank you for all the encouragement and support in devastating yet exciting (and utterly terrifying) time in my life. A week ago, my husband of almost 9 years unexpectantly asked for a divorce. It’s completely over. I was and am still shattered. I was inconsolable for a few days. He said I wasn’t enough. I wasn’t worthy. I am enough. Silas & I are starting fresh and I will make Nox better and more efficient than ever. Anything to provide the best life and future for my son. Thank you all for the support, love, and encouragement to show me that I’m enough and Nox - which I single handedly built from nothing - is not inconconsequental. It’s worthy too. Thank you in the support of si and my move and the overflowing love. I am filled with your strength when I feel like falling now. I’m so grateful for all of my customers- my real support system. Bookstagram and the bookish community. You are more to me than I can express. Just thank you.
The FLU took longer to run its course than I expected for my son, Sci-Fi & I. It's been a miserable and a physically exhausting 2 weeks for the two of us. Sincerely, I'm sorry about delays & not having any help to get anything productive done. I hope that you all this that my candles are worth the wait. I put so much love into each order & yours will be no different (Yes, I'm taking to you... *You* definition: All my customers, friends and supporters. Yes. You!) Today is Friday, the 2/23 and it's the first day that I can sit down and get orders out. I haven't been able to check messages here & has only been on IG twice in the last 7 days. (I'm apprehensive to check, but I'm ready to get all orders shipped and to their forever homes). I assumed last week the I would have been better earlier this week, but this FLU had a strong hold of both Si and I. Thank you so much for your compassion and understanding. Having a small business with only me makes me have no backup help or any possibility way to take sick days and it not affect the progress of Nox, is difficult. I truly needed these sick days... for both my son and myself.. Thank you, everyone. You know how much I love you. I'll be answering messages early this afternoon. I'm packing boxes now to try to beat usps and get as many orders together, as possible.
(Yes, I'm doing my signature rambling. 🙈I love you guys so much.)


Welcome everyone to Nox to Lumos Candle Co.

I always want to be as transparent and honest with you, so I want you to know that I make all candles COMPLETELY BY MYSELF so SHIPPING TIMES MAY VARY. I work hard to get all orders out as quickly as possible but ALL ORDERS ARE MADE AFTER ORDER so they are as fresh and pretty as possibly, making my unique chunks as beautiful as possible. ❤️

Im staying in writing that shipping times vary, sometimes if it says 1-2 weeks, please keep in mind that I make each candle in my home, with a 3 and 1/2 year old "assistant" (eeer... deterrent) so please bare with me. I promise you that I put as much love as possible into each of your candles. I hope you can understand that I don't have any help in creating my candles and keeping my customers happy really is my highest priority in Nox to Lumos. Anyone who knows me knows that you can email me and I will do anything in my power to make this up to you the best I can. (Email: noxtolumoscandles [!at] gmail.com)
Just please understand that *SHIPPING TIMES MAY VARY FROM THE ETSY TIME, BUT I WILL WORK AS HARD AS POSSIBLE TO KEEP IT IN THAT TIME FRAME.*
I put so much time, love, passion and every ounce of bookish love into each and every one of my candles. My candles, since they are "chunk candles" take twice as long then normal basic candles- meaning I make 1/2 less candles on each "creation day" then other candle companies. I don't mind. I love feeling like a mad scientist. I love putting everything I have into each candle. I just ordered my first batch of new PROFESSIONAL printed labels with my Revamped look and they will take 1-3 weeks to arrive. I can't wait. Seriously. I cannot wait to look as professional on the outside as I do when I am creating every candle from the inside out.
I want you, my customers, friends, & confidantes , to understand that i desire to give you the BEST POSSIBLE PRODUCT.

I am in this for keeps. I want to give you a product that I can be 100% proud of.
I hope you all can understand and will stay loyal to me. I have some INCREDIBLE THINGS HAPPENING!!!!!


Please, feel free to go find one of my three Reps on BOOKSTAGRAM and they have discount codes... USPS has ridiculous shipping rates so I had to switch to a different method. (The most inexpensive way that I have found. The padded envelope with my box inside. Flat rate. As an owner, friend & consumer... usps shipping rates make me nauseated. I'm sorry. ) Regardless, I LOVE knowing you... so please let me know your Bookstagram name... I'll email you immediately after seeing your purchase in my email and ask regardless... lol. So, Hi. I'm Jessie @yetstillshereads on bookstagram:) DM me, please. I love fangirling. Truly.
I hope you love what we have to offer.
My SIGNATURE "chunk candles" are completely unique in the bookish candle world. Stay tuned for this great adventure with me.

No Refunds but if any orders come broken from usps handling, ill happily replace them asap.

I'm just stating this because I hope that you guys know how much of myself I put into my candles and each candle is MADE BY HAND without help, while caring for my son without help. YOU, my customers, matter more to be then you will ever know. Sincerely. I hope you stick with me and care for me as much as I am grateful for you.

I love you guys.

Ok so this is my ship. I will cry so much if SJM tears them apart (more than they already are). That being said...I needed a candle to show my devotion! This Elidorcan candle is sweet but not to a point that it is overwhelming. I am very stingy with this one since I never want to run out of it!

I love Lorcan from TOG and have been wanting a candle for a longggg time. I finally found one and omg amazing. It is slightly spicy after it has been burning for a while but it is not overwhelming. I love it so much that I burn it everyday. My apartment smells great all day after I use this candle!

After some issues with delivery, the order came and the owner included another candle for the trouble. Both candles smell lovely.

I bought these candles for my best friend's birthday and she loved them! The candles truly embodied the characters. There was some confusion with the shipping, but she totally took complete responsibility and even threw in a few extra candles as an apology. She was very easy to work with and seems to truly love what she does.

I am on the east coast of Florida and Hurricane Irma- a Category 5 hurricane, which is record breaking in so many ways- is headed, it seems, on a direct path to us. Please bear with me and keep my family and the whole state of Florida in your prayers.

About

I had this vision to create my favorite bookish scents for myself, friends and family and decided that I wanted to share so many more ideas w/you too!

Hi. I'm Jessie (or yetstillshereads on bookstagram) and I also have a blog at yetstillshereads.wordpress.com .
I have always been obsessed with reading. I'm 30 years old from the treasure coast, Florida (USA).
I'm a sahm to a 3 year old, Sci-Fi, who is beginning to love books just as much as I do.
I am always reading something (and rarely sleep), so I wanted to be able to share books with you - through candle scents, that you may already love (and be completely infatuated with) or maybe you haven't heard of at all.
