Sentsy Wickless Candles – Success Story

The review that I have today is quite a neat one, its actually a success story about how two stay-at-home moms took their awesome idea mainsteam and ended up creating a very unique product.

Have you ever come across something on Youtube and felt like, wow, an interesting concept and the videos are definitely hilarious or shocking (like this one) but, you just never understand how long something like this can last? Well, with the EpicMealTime videos on Youtube, I kind of wonder what their plan of attack is. Background Basically, EpicMealTime is a show hosted by Harley Morenstein and features a bunch of his friends taking on high-calorie, meat packed meals (constituting mostly of bacon) and tons of alcohol.
