I'M BACK! With my LSC haul!

We meet again!

I know I've been away from blogging for a while. I miss it and it's time to get back into the swing of things. With getting ready for my wedding, getting married, getting settled into married life, I couldn't find the attention span to blog. I've been taking pics of my hauls, and I'll be showing them the next few days. I'm hopefully going to get back into what I've been melting and my favorites posts too. 

Onto the beloved LSC! Some girls and I on FB literally STALKED their site for the reset, and when they restocked we were locked and loaded! I got 27 scent shots total, and one freebie. This order consists mostly of pumpkin scents and duplicates, so I hope this isn't a boring haul for ya. Here's what I got!

Lavender Mallow Bread - This is a favorite of many, so I had to grab one of these. And now I know why! This is so awesome! I really wish I had gotten more lavender scents, I'm very picky and I really like this one. I love this blend, the bakery notes make this so cozy.

Candy Cane Kisses x 2: Oh wow this is awesome! Smells just like a candy cane with the right hint of sweetness - vanilla perhaps? It's seriously amazing. Smells just like that candy cane ice cream I love from Edy's!

Lavender Cotton Candy: This was an impulse order and I don't really like it. Their herbal like lavender mixed with a sweet cotton candy is just weird. I'll probably pass this one on. 

Peppermint Dreams x 2: I like Candy Cane Kisses way better, but this one is still good! More of a harsh peppermint if that makes sense. I can tell this one is going to be crazy strong!

Creamy Pumpkin Shake x 2: I had gotten this as a gift from Jacqui back when I first got into wax, and I loved it! I knew I had to grab two more. This is great, milky, creamy pumpkin scent. It smells warm to me if ya catch my drift! So comforting. 

Pumpkin Filled Twinky x 2: This one I thought would be the same as Pumpkin Filled Twinkies that I got as a freebie in my last order, but it's not. This is WAY stronger and less creamy than my previous scent shot. This is really yum. 

Pumpkin Pecan Filled Waffles x 2: I got a mini candle of this from B&BW and holy CRAP I fell in love! Of course, this was after the Fall candles were gone so I couldn't get a 3 wick. Go figure. I have to say I like LSC version of this scent even better! By far of my top 3 scents from this order and I'll be looking for this scent from any vendor for sure! 

Pumpkin Mallow Chai x 2: This is another one that Jacqui had given me way back. At least I think it's this one - some variation of a pumpkin Chai scent anyway. Creamy and spicy. 

Pumpkin Bread x 2: This one's weird to me. I don't dislike it, but I don't get any bread notes at all. I get their pumpkin, but the other note smells like maple syrup to me. I definitely get more candy than bakery. Hmmm...

Pumpkin Creme Cupcake x2: This is honestly the lightest of all of the pumpkin blends, and it's light and creamy. Very yummy. Doesn't smell exactly like the B&BW candle, but pretty close.

Apple Cranberry Streusel x 2: I love apple scents and I love cranberry so I thought WHY NOT! This is awesome! I love the tartness of this, I LOVE this! This will be a perfect melt for a cold winter night. 

Beignets x 2: I regretted not getting this one last time around, so I made sure to grab two. THIS ONE IS PERFECT! It smells dead on to CFTKR Cinnamon Streusel and it's one of my favorite scents. Such a strong, sweet cinnamon.

Jack O Lantern Cookies: Nice, sweet pumpkin bakery scent. Pretty basic, but really, really good!

Apple Pumpkin Corn Muffins: This is another of my top 3 favorites! I HATE corn bread to eat, so I thought I would hate this scent but it's freaking AMAZING. I've been loving apple and pumpkin blends and this is no exception. Really wish I had gotten more. *pout*

Gingerbread Apple Sauce: Smells exactly as the name implies! Really nice blend of the gingerbread and the apple note. Super awesome.

Virginia's Blueberry Cookies: Really nice blueberry cookie scent, I had a scent shot of Blueberry Muffins before, and I think I just plain love LSC's blueberry! YUM!

Santa Treats: This was the freebie and I wasn't too wowed with this one. A pretty basic sugar cookie scent to my sniffer.

Toasted Fireside: So, here's my confession: I've become OBSESSED with B&BW's Marshmallow Fireside and all of it's dupes. Like I said, OBSESSED. This is so close! I'll be hoarding this one for sure and it's my last top 3 favorite! I'll be hoarding this like crazy. CRAY-Z.

So that's it! I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving!

Hey there, ladies!

It's been so long since I did a favorite melts post, and since I've accumulated SO MUCH over the past month or so, I went through my bin took out only the ones I absolutely loved! I've really missed blogging, and I won't lie - it feels so good not to have a million wedding things to take care of! I HAVE FREE TIME NOW! :) Here's what I've been loving!

LSC: Pink Fruit Loops - Such a classic scent for me and I love this blend from pretty much any vendor! I've starting melting my LSC in my 24 watt hot plate only and they perform so well! This was a great blend!

LSC: Blueberry Muffin - I'm insanely picky when it comes to blueberry scents, but this I loved! I'll need more when I order again! This was a great bakery/blueberry blend. Nice and strong!

CFTKR: Cherry Marshmallow Crumble - I've been CRAZY into cherry scents lately, and this was AMAZING! I was so bummed, I tried to order this during my last order with Carol and it was sold out. Next time!

TDC: Cherry Slushie - Like I said, a cherry kick! This is a great cherry scent with a great effervescent notes! I've been loving my TDC tarts lately, I might need to order again soon.

iheartwax: Pistachio Fluff - One cube from this massive clamshell was crazy strong and lasted forever! This is unlike any other pistachio scent I have, but I love it!

RG: Serendipity Swizzle Sticks - Finally started melted this bag! I love their swizzle sticks scent, it adds such a nice candied sweetness. This was one of the first RG chunks I melted in my Glade warmer!

RG: Wonders of The World - I cannot believe how dumb I am for not ordering a bag of this in my last order. ITS GETTING ORDERED NEXT TIME FO SHO! Rich, creamy, caramel goodness. And STRONG. LOVE!

RG: Blonde Moment - This is simply AMAZING. AH-MAZ-ING. I'm so mad that I didn't order a blend in this for my last order. I left out so many amazing things in my last order. Next time! Blonde Moment has become one of my favorite scents EVER and I am totally getting a loaf in this blended next order. SO STRONG!

CFTKR: Cinnamon Strudel - Holy Hell,how have I gone this long within this scent in my life?! What a strong, amazing, flaky cinnamon scent. I only got a 4 ounce bag and I'm so mad I didn't get two 8 ounce bags! Simply amazing. A year round bakery scent for sure.

CFTKR: Wildberry Mouse Cheesecake - What a nice, creamy wildberry scent! I've always been up and down with wildberry mouse scents, but I think I love Carols. Really yum!

CFTKR: Danish Butter Cookie - I'd like you to meet one of my favorite bakery cookie blends from Carol! It's so good! I snagged a bag in her last opening and I was so excited! I love the buttery notes with the sugar cookie. Fantastic.

BH&G: Candied Caramel Apple - I've loaded up on BH&G Fall scents this is one of my favorite ones I've melted! One of the BEST caramel apple scents in my stash AND it's nice and strong with only one cube! If you don't have this, YOU NEED THIS!

LSC: Pink Sugar Cookie - I didn't realize I've been melting so much LSC lately! I love me a good PS cookie scent, and this one was pretty great! My only complaint is that the cookie note wore off rather quickly and all I was left with was PS. Still loved it!

LSC: Cinnamon Sugar Donut - Awww shit this is amazing! I had been hoarding this one for a while but I just had to melt it! I love great cinnamon bakery scents and this is a classic in my book! Nice and strong.

HHS: Pink Strawberry Noel - Pink and strawberry are meant to be together, I swear! I've only ordered from Janet once, but when I plan on ordering next this will go on my to order list! Smooth, yet strong!

LSC: Blackberry Rock Candy - I really do enjoy LSC's rock candy scents - they add a great sweetness to scents! I've been on a lime kick lately, and lime mixed with the rock candy made this good enough to eat!

LSC: Coco Lime Cookies - Now this was flippin' amazing! I love the coconut and lime together, blended with a bakery note makes it come off as not a summer scent, but a great smooth yet tart cookie scent! LOVE! I want more for sure!

S&S: Strawberry Banana Cream Pie - Oh, Sugar and Spice. You steal my heart over and over again. I'm not really crazy about her strawberry scent, but I love her banana! Blended together as a cream pie it's perfection! Nice and strong too!

Have a great day, girls!
