T-Town Buzz will highlight individuals in Tuscaloosa that are doing things deemed “Buzz-Worthy” in our community. We want to spread some good news and introduce our readers to people that are creating, producing, and being active within our city.  We do not know everyone, so we are asking the community to help us by nominating people that you consider “Buzz-Worthy”.  If you would like to nominate someone, please send us at least 3 photos and a short write up about why they should be featured. Email your submissions to

prettywicked_ttownbuzz_customcandleTaNieka Wilson, the owner of Pretty Wicked Scents, is our first Buzz-Worthy feature. Her soy candles are handmade and can be customized. Looking for a specific color and size? TaNieka most likely can accommodate you. Pretty Wicked Scents also offers candle wax melts and car fresheners in a variety of scents. 


The candle making idea came to her while trying to come up with a way to pay her tuition for massage school. She was able to attend school and create a business that has taken off. Her candles have been shipped to several states and are sold in salons and boutiques in Tuscaloosa.  

pwscents2 TaNieka offers her candles to groups and schools for fund raising opportunities and hopes to be able to provide financial help for college students.

If you would like to order products, you can go to or the company’s Facebook page

Congrats TaNieka Wilson!  You are Buzz-Worthy!  We wish you much success!
