JLCCW Round Robin

As the title suggests, I got my Jamie Lauren Round Robin Box in the mail today!!!

Around February, Avalon, daughter of Jamie Lauren Cupcakery and Confections in Wax, started a Round Robin box with her own stash of JLCCW!! It went around to a few people before it went to myself!  People have been posting pictures and videos of what they were getting out of it, and putting back into it!  So I kind've knew what to look out for!!

We each got to take out 6 JLCCW items to be fair to everyone else!! :)  So here's the pictures!!

This is what I got out of the Round Robin box!! I really REALLY lucked out!! YAY!! <3

I got a 4pack of Front Porch Warm Vanilla and Sweet Sugar, a single of Front Porch Pink Noel, a 4pack of bunnies from Lil Kitchen Candles in Strawberry Shake and a single scallop of Strawberry Marshmallow Bread, a scent shot of Peppermint Marshmallow Snow from Lasting Scent Candles, a scallop of Orange Chiffon Cake from Long Cane Primitives, Rainbow Sherbert from Cupcake Candles, Rainbow Sherbert from CFTKR, Serendipity Splash from Tiffany Candles, and a chunk of Rosegirl's Cranberry Marmalade Zucchini Bread.  

From JLCCW, I got 2 cupcakes in Vanilla Hazelnut Mocha, a cupcake in Nana's Kitchen, a scallop in Vanilla Frosted Grahams, 1 scallop of Cinnamon Buns, and a scallop in Cinnamon Crunch Cake!!!

As part of a Round Robin, you have to put back in wax, as much as you took out or more!  I put back in SMT Mallow Zucchini and Blackberry Marshmallow Latte, Closet Full of Wax Lemon Squares, Cotton Candy, Berry Apple Cinnamon, and Blackberry Jam, K's Kreations Luck of the Irish, CTKR Pumpkin Pie Filling, Aunt Nena's Moonlight Pomegranate, Distinctly Pink Elf Dust, Can-Do Vanilla Woods, Orchid Lake Wildberry Smoothie, Crabby/Dutch Banana Cream Pie, Pink Zucchini, Zucchini Claws, Shayz Caramelized Lemons, Southern Iced Tea, BeauxSavonsFrais Starbucks Butter Brickle Coffee, and 2 Yankee Canary Island Banana.

It was wonderful to be part of this Round Robin!! Usually I am hesitant to be part of Round Robins because people like to dump their used/old/crap wax in Round Robins, and that just turns me off of them.  But I had a feeling with the people involved, and having so little people doing the particular box, that it was going to go well!! :) And it did!! Now all I have to do is send it off to Avalon on Monday!  

I also got my Tara's Candle Cottage order!! It was small, but I was on a ban and it was all I could justify!! lol! I was lucky to get in on a free shipping on any order!! lol 

I got a 3pack of "Pink-A-Rific", a single in Mango Papaya, and a single of Skittles.  I got a free cup of Pink Sugar.  :D I am waiting for these to cure!!

I keep forgetting to write down what I have been melting, so it's going to be off the top of my head!!

I've got now SMT Butt Naked and Orange Zucchini, Can-Do Yuzu, Pink Sands, and Hot Orange Danish, S&S Pink Orange Danish, BSF Strawberry Shake, Sweet Lolli Bread, and Pink Sands!  That's what I have going right now in my bedroom and my living room!! It smells sooo good!! Smelling alot of that SMT Butt Naked now!!

Had BSF Sweet Lolli, Serendipity, HHS Pink Sugar going the other day!! Can I just SAY that I LOOOVVEEEEE Sweet Lolli!! It's like a lollipop!  A tangy nice blend!! SOO good!! I changed one of my loaves in my custom order to be Pink Sweet Lolli!! Seriously, so good and strong!! So is her Serendipity!! And everyone knows how I feel about Pink Sugar!!

Before this, I had a HUGE Shayz Pink Sugar SURGE!! Pink Danish, Warm Pink Vanilla Sugar, Pink Grapefruit, Pink Toastie Marshmallows!! And then I added a little bit of HHS Pink Sugar!  I went through a whole pack of HHS Pink Sugar in a week, folks.  That's ALOT!

In my bedroom, I had Front Porch!  Pink Lime, Lemon Marshmallow, and Mimosa and Mandarin!  Added a single of Pink Coconut Cream!! It was a wonderful medley of scents and lasted for 5 days!!

This is what I remember, but I've been leaving my dishes on 3-4 days at a time lately!! Started a new job and adjusting to a new schedule!

I would LOVE to hear what you guys have been melting!! Any new companies?? Anyone ordering from Jaimie Lauren on April 2nd?  I have my list ready to go!! Once 7AM Eastern (6AM Central) comes around, I'm submitting my order and hopefully will be one of the first to go out!  :D

BeauxSavonsFrais Has Arrived!

I had gotten my tracking number on Tuesday.  What everyone can count on the post office is, is losing their package.  I was calling my local post office, and the first post office where it got shipped to after it left the vendor's hands... and they kept telling me that, "Oh, it just hasn't been scanned yet".  Well it hadn't moved for three days.  I was afraid it was LOST!!!!  It makes me so nervous.  Being in a bunch of wax groups, you hear all sorts of post office stories where they lost your package or toss it around so bad that most everything is MISSING out of your package.  But luckily... the post office came through, it started updating again on Saturday... and came TODAY!!!

More Orders!!

More of my tax money-spending spree came!!! :) :) I got Haley's Heavenly Scents and Bella Bark!  Here are some pictures!!

I got six packs in: 2 Pink Sugar, 2 Pink Pineapple Orchid, 1 Pink Noel, 1 Pink Serendipity, 1 Granma's Monkey Farts, 1 Pink Sugared Strawberries, and 1 Pink Sugared Strawberry White Cake.

Got cups in Lemon Creme Cooler, Whipped Amish Bread, Jelly Beans, Pink Hawaiian Punch, and my freebie was Flip Flops.  Everything smells soooo wonderful!! It's going to be hard to let them cure!!

I also got two warmers!! Been trying to switch out my bulb warmers to hot plate warmers!! Got the "Bird" one and the "Black Crackle" one!! Love them both!! YAY!

Here's my Bella's Bark Sale (First time ever ordering from Bella's).  I have only tried Cotton Candy Sweet Bread in a destash and loved it!!!

I blended!! Because I've been loving to do that lately!! Sweet Serendipity (Serendipity + Pink Sugar)/More Pink Sugar/VBN!  It smells soooo good cold!! I'm going to let this bag cure for a while!! Make sure it's nice and strong!! 

The great part is, about Bella's, is that shipping is included in the price.  I got this bag, a pound of bark, for $10.99 shipped!! That's UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!  Shipping was $7.48 so that's how good of a deal you are getting.  She is closing temporarily, I believe April 1st, so everyone get their orders in now!!! 

I am getting my BSF and my Sugar and Spice Orders tomorrow!! So I will be posting more pictures and have a new blog entry tomorrow!!!  

Anyone have any blends from Bella's that are good?? Nothing caramelly/toffee, apple/banana/grape/zucchini bread/etc etc.  I love Pink Sugar/ Serendipity/VBN/Toasted Marshmallow/tangerine/bakery lavender.  

If you guys have blogs, please post links below in the comments!! I know about a few (Shoutout to Loloscents!!) (sorry if I spelled that wrong) 

Stay tuned tomorrow!! More pictures and scents galore!! How am I going to put all this up?? I don't know.. lol!! Will have to take pictures of my wax shelf!! haha!

I got it all at once!! Had three packages in my mailbox... the more the merrier!!

First package today was from The Happy Little Bee.  She has an Etsy site and shipping and her prices are SUPER reasonable!!

I kept seeing pictures of Unicorn Toots.  And, to be honest, names with farts or poop or burps or something... make me really intrigued to see what the hell is in the scent description... haha... because, really, if it smells like a fart, who would want it?  Then again, you have people buying tarts that smell like weed and bacon.  I guess, to everyone, their own!  LOL

So, I was on a buying SPREE (tax time, who can blame me?) and figured this would be the best time to try Happy Little Bee.  I've heard great things from some fellow wax group members on FB, even though they are clamshells! :) 

Cold Sniff Unicorn Toots:  The description on the website said a mix of fruity and floral.  I personally think that's very vague... I want to know HOW much floral do you smell... I don't like those strong floral scents.  Most of them smell industrial to me.  But I bit the bullet and bought it.  It smells like a softer version of Sweet Tarts!  I am definitely looking forward to see what notes come out melting!

Cold Sniff Pink Sugar: Anyone who's read this blog before this post, knows I love my Pink Sugar! 'Nuff said!

Then I got two freebies:  Ooey Gooey Brownie and Red Velvet Cake.   Ooey Gooey Brownie, cold, smells like chocolate milk/hot chocolate... very nice!! Red Velvet Cake, I don't smell too much out of cold, so I'm hoping for more warm!!

Overall I am happy with my purchase with The Happy Little Bee so far!!  My concerns are if I smell any plastic from the clamshells.  I would also love to see THLB with some more scents, maybe even blend scents?

Then I have Sniff My Tarts CHUNK LOT!  

I didn't handpick these scents, but I OKAYED them.  My Sugar Corn Pudding/Bear Claws was a freebie/surprise.   My other scents were Pink Butter Cookie Vanilla Bean, Fruit Smoothie, Wildberry Mousse Zucchini Bread, and Serendipity Zucchini Bread!! Sooooo excited to melt!! Really thinking about melting a few of these NOW!  I don't think I can wait... teeheehee!! 

Everything on cold sniff smells great!! Of course I love the Pink Sugar/Fruit/Serendipity blends the most!  

Last but definitely not least, Orchid Lake Candles order!! I did an order with a friend of mine, but I did take a picture of my stuff.  

Yayyy for Orchid Lake Candle!! I got a really great order, and I ordered enough (between my friend and I) for free shipping!! Cups that I got were: Watermelon, Wildberry Smoothie, Tangerine Mango, Summer Fling, Sparkling Mango, Pink Toasty Mallows, Pink Chiffon (Type), Pineapple Orchid, Grapefruit & Mangosteen, Grapefruit, and Coco Pink.  I got the "Mini Cake Tarts" in Iced Lemon Danish, Creamsicle, and Pink (Type).  Honorable Mention in this order is the Tangerine Mango and Pink (Type).  Pink Chiffon and Pineapple Orchid are also really really GOOD smelling!!!  

I am SOOOOOOOOOOO happy with my orders!! I have my plates in the freezer, waiting to be changed out with new wax!!

I have my RTS stuff coming from BSF, my HHS should be shipping tomorrow and I have my first ever Bellas bark bag from her bark sale shipping this week!  Will be posting again, hopefully on Thursday!! Taking a few days off before starting my new job!! 

Do you have favorite scents from these vendors?  Any that I need to try?  Hope you guys like everything and post below if you have any questions or comments!! Thanks!

Lazy Week-Sorry Guys :)

Phew!!! I have been so lazy!!  I have missed my Sunday post for this week, but I will definitely let you guys what has been going on :)

I got a HALEYS HEAVENLY SCENTS ORDER!!! LOL I have three more in the process, with her new scents and warmers.  I got:

Cups in Nana's Pound Cake, Lavender SCDB, Pink Fluffy Toasted Marshmallow, and Pink Blackberry Butter Jam Cookies
Got two six packs in Pink Sugar and one six pack in Whipped Cream + Wildberry Mousse VBN+ Pink Sugar!

Also got my Shayz order!! I know some people are not crazy fans of Shayz, but I LOVE her pink scents!! :) :) This is what I got!

Six Packs in Pink Serendipity, Pink Grapefruit, and Pink Danish
Cups in Caramelized Lemons, Pink Fruity Slices, Pink Watermelon Surprise, Pink Lilac and Pink Vanilla Berry Cobbler.  Got some cups for a friend in Monkey Farts, Pineapple Pappy, Watermelon, Hawaiian Bermuda Triangle, and Fruity Slices.

This week, I received my sale order from February 14th from Crabby/Dutch Candle!  Boy oh BOY I need to order more of some of these!! :) :)  Since this was my very first order from the company, I ordered all 1oz cups!

Baileys in Bed, Cookie Madness, Creamsicle, Hawaiian Rainbow Cake, Hello, Sugar!, Pink Dunes, Pink Noel, Pink Sugar, Pink Zucchini, Pink Sugared Cookies, Southern Iced Tea, White Tea & Mango, Banana Cream Pie, Skittles, Jelly Bean, Mango Papaya, and Toasted Marshmallow, and a freebie in Zucchini Claws.

It is easier to say which ones I didn't like, and those surprised me!  Southern Iced Tea (doesn't smell like I thought it would, but its OK :) I'm not a real life tea fan anyway!), both Pink Zucchini and Zucchini Claws (I am not a huge Zucchini fan and this one was REALLY not for me), Banana Cream Pie (smells like Banana Laffy Taffy and I was hoping for a little more creaminess), and Hawaiian Rainbow Cake.  Not sure why I don't like HRC, but just didn't do it for me.

The other ones, especially Bailey's in Bed and Cookie Madness, which are scents I really were debating on getting in the first place because I'm not a HUGE sweet type person... are AMAZING!!! :) :) :) I can't wait to start melting these!!!  Am letting them cure now!

I am getting a package from Sassygirl tomorrow, and have orders from Sugar and Spice, HHS, BSF, OLC in the process!! I am going to try to take pictures this week!! :) :)

What I have been melting:

Shayz Pink Strawberry Jam- Strong and yummy strawberry, reorder!
Shayz Pink Zucchini- I have said before that I really don't like zucchini.  I think Shayz, along with BSF, is one that I have to try more blends, because Pink Zucchini is WONDERFUL! :) :)
Shayz Pink Watermelon Surprise- FANTASTIC! Reorder!
Shayz Pink Grapefruit- yummy and grapefruity!! Already got another six pack (above)
Sugar & Spice Ruby Red Grapefruit- This is KNOCK YOU ON YOUR BUTT strong!! I am loving it!
Sugar & Spice Funnel Cakes and Waffle Cones- Very nice scent!! You can smell the funnel cakes AND the waffle cones!! I would definitely recommend!! Yum!
HHS Cotton Candy Funnel Cakes- Delicious! Cotton Candy + Funnel Cake?  You can't go wrong!
SMT Serendipity Coconut Cream- Omg this is AMAZING!!! I would never have thought of putting this together, but omg omg OMG! YUM! Strong and GREAT!
Can-Do Pink Coconut- This one smells yummy cold, but I couldn't smell it that strong warm.
OLC Pink Lemon Biscotti- Have it in my bathroom, yummy!!
HHS Juniper Breeze- Did not think I'd like this one, but its nice!! Not my type of scent though.
Can-Do Hello Handsome- Really STRONG cologne dupe!! Was pleasantly pleased with this one!
JLCCW Pink Serendipity Jaimie- This one is AMAZING!! Sooooooo GOOD!  I am debating on this in a loaf... it's THAT GOOD!

This is all I can remember right now!! Have been having such a good wax week melting and stuff!! Will finally have more time to melt and record!!

Have a great week you guys!! Hopefully will have more in the next week or two!!
