Granny´s Kountry Candles haul

And again a haul from GKC =) I finally decided to get some of her $0.50 tarts as they are really value for money lol. I also got some of those bulb-shaped candles as they were on sale for $5 (and they are 16 oz!). 

Lasting Scent Candles haul

LSC is one of the best tart vendors in my opinion. The blends are really unique and almost all scents are really strong and I encountered only a hand full of duds out of the many ones I melted.
This was my first custom order as the RTS section was totally picked over. I placed this order on November 28th and got it sometime in the first half of January so it took a while to reach me. I got I believe 4 free scent shots.

Daily wax melts January 26th 2013

-Lasting Scent Candles Candy Land Dreamin in the bedroom (24W hot plate). A good standard sweet peppermint. It was pretty strong and lasting but it was nothing very special. 

-CFTKR Pink Sugared Lavender in the first floor (24W hot plate). This was light but lingered all day was a very good sweet lavender/pink sugar blend.

-Front Porch Strawberry Serendipity in the kitchen (tealight). I didn´t like this one. The serendipity scent was too light and I am not a big strawberry fan. After a while it had a weird undertone that made me slightly sick.

-Sniff My Tarts Vanilla Butter Fudge Caramel in the living room (24W hot plate). This was good and a bit stronger than most other chunks but I also melted the whole big piece (I bet this weighed at least 3 oz). However it did have a weird smell, almost like bread or popcorn and I didn´t care for this after a while.

-Haley´s Heavenly Scents Caramel Zucchini Bread (2 tarts) in the living room (24W hot plate). This was really delicious as it had a nice sweet zucchini bread blended with gooey caramel (which was barely detectable on cold sniff). The scent was strong and lasted for long time.

Three Sisters Soap haul

I purchased a good bunch of soaps on Artfire from the Three Sisters Soap shop. Debby makes my favorite soaps, they are creamy and don´t dry out my skin at all! She had bath bomb listed as well so I got a bunch of those, too. As always she was super generous with her extras (last pic).

Daily wax melts January 25th 2013

I didn´t post the daily melts for the past few days as I just melted random stuff I wanted to finish and reviewed before. So I am continuing from 25th onwards =)

-Streetman Candles Vanilla Bean Noel in the bedroom (24W hot plate). This was a nice spot-on VBN scent. Throw was good and staying power as well. I really liked this one!

-CFTKR Lemon Lifesavers in the 1st floor (24W hot plate). Awesome! Strong, sweet lemon scent with an incredible strength and lasting power. Amazing!

-The Bathing Garden Cheshire Cat (2 cubes) in the kitchen (tealight). Another awesome scent, no wonder that this is one of Shannon´s bestsellers. It´s lemon meringue pie topped with raspberry and something (maybe vanilla?). It´s a wonderful scent! Strength was great as well as the duration.

-Butterfly Lane Serendipity/Sugar Cookie Dough brittle in the living room (24W hot plate). This is a really nice serendipity bakery scent. The intensity was about medium and staying power was about average (4-5 hours I think). 

-Haley´s Heavenly Scents Granmas Amish Zucchini (3 grubby hearts) in the living room (24W hot plate). No wonder HHS´s granmas zucchini bread scent is called "crack bread" lol! it´s such a wonderfully creamy zucchini bread scent and smells even more awesome blended with other things! The amish friendship bread lends a sweet, almost powdery cinnamon note but it´s creamy enough due to the zuke bread. AWESOME! Strong and long-lasting!

2 Bath & Body Works SAS hauls

I couldn´t resist picking up a bunch of goodies from the B&BW SAS this year. I hauled bigblast year but skipped the one in summer as there was nothing interesting back in June. 
I got everything for cheap and also used coupon codes for even a greater discount.
I placed another order for just a few more of the White Tea & Ginger items while they were on sale for $3 as the scent is really awesome (no pics of that haul separately as the White Tea & Ginger products are already featured in one of the hauls below!)
