Scentsy Bring Back My Bar Summer 2014 Haul

I have a huge collection of Scentsy bars.  I got my first ones as a birthday gift about 7 years ago and that's where it all started.  As you may or may not know, I got rid of most of my wax and Scentsy were the only ones that I kept.  I still have tons of candles, but as far as wax melts goes, this is all that I have and I am completely happy with them.  Twice a year they do the Bring Back My Bar, where they pick retired scents and bring them back for a limited time.  These are the ones that I got this time around.

Mums & Marigolds
Apples & Pears

What I'm Burning 7/14/14

This is the candle that I chose this time.  It's the scent Country Heather in a large jar.  It's a cold day here in Minnesota so it seems weird to be burning a floral but I'm hoping that it will warm up soon!!  I will be buying my fall scents soon, as much as I don't want summer to be almost over.  It seems like this summer has FLOWN by, I hope the last half will slow down a little!!

Yankee Candle Haul

One day last week there was a code floating around for 50% off everything on the Yankee Candle website, so I jumped on it as soon as I found out.  It's a good thing that I did because apparently the code was only meant for employees and only worked for a very short time.  I got 8 large jars.  4 of them came today and 4 will be coming later in the week.

Descriptions from the website:

Mountain Lodge - A luxurious retreat in front of a cozy hearth, warm with the aroma of cedarwood and sage.  Experience the authentic, true-to-life fragrance, with pure, natural extracts, and renowned Yankee Candle quality
Cranberry Pear - A positively delectable union of sweet and tart..fresh orchard pears drizzled with decadent cranberry syrup
Sunflower - A picturesque fragrance of radiant sunshine and wistful floral notes
Mango Peach Salsa - Sweet and zesty..juicy mangoes and peaches livened with citrus, ginger flowers, and pink pepper

What I'm Burning 6/15/14

Here is what I burned for June.  It was the scent Berry Colada in a large jar.  It was a nice, refreshing summer scent!!

Yankee Candle Summer SAS Haul #2

Here is my second and final haul from the summer SAS sale.  I got 6 more large jars and that black stand.  The stand wasn't on sale but it was one of those things that I had to have.

Descriptions from the website:

Fluffy Towels - The fresh scent of clean towels warm from the dryer with notes of lemon, apple, lavender, and lily
Tulips - Naturally clean and bright, it captures the essence of a dewy spring morning
Beach Flowers - Like delicate keepsakes from the sea..the lovely scent of tuberose, lily, and hyacinth blossoms balanced with soft watery notes
Beautiful Day - Life is good with this happily enchanting mix of sunny fruits, pretty flowers, and spicy herbs
Oatmeal Cookie - Warm and fresh from the oven.  Just like Mom used to make.  We've brought back one of your treasured fragrances from the past for a limited time

Mini Yankee Candle Summer SAS Haul

When the SAS haul started there was some that I wanted that were sold out before the sale even began.  I was a little sad.  I'm in a group on Facebook for people, like myself, that are addicted to Yankee Candle.  So I posted on there asking if anyone would be willing to pick them up for me.  Luckily a very nice lady said she would.  She only found 3 of the 4 that I wanted, Beautiful Day ended up being restocked so I got it eventually :)  I was so grateful for her generosity!!

The scents that I got:

Cherry Blossom
Sweet Honeysuckle
Blueberry Muffin

Yankee Candle Summer SAS Haul #1

It's that time of year again.  The time for the Yankee Candle SAS!!  I was so excited.  This is my first of many hauls.  I got 9 large jars and one Illumi-lid.  The lid wasn't on sale but I had seen it in the store when I went shopping for my birthday and I had to have it.
