This is officially my first post in December! How exciting! Our tree is up and my Christmas music is blasting so I am beyond ready to start writing some more festive posts. However, today's post is a little less festive as it is a black Friday haul! I am a big lover of hauls (maybe because I am so nosey!) and love seeing what people got on black Friday. So, I thought I would join in and share what I got (a little late but better late than never, right?). I did all of my shopping online because just the thought of trying to shop in person makes me want to cry. Shopping online is so much easier and way more comfortable in my opinion. I purchased some items from both boohoo.com and Yankee candle so I may be dong a boohoo haul soon too! Anyway, on with today's post.
Yankee candle had a deal of purchase £60 worth of items and get a £72 gift set free. Now I had purchased some Christmas gifts from Yankee about a month ago, however, seeing this offer I was very tempted. A lot of my friends and family like candles just as much as me so I decided to go for the offer and buy some birthday gifts for next year too, as well as a few extra Christmas gifts (with a few for myself too).
First up I got 7 samplers. This included turquoise sky, vanilla lime, ginger dusk, fluffy towels, Serengeti sunset, salted caramel and shea butter. I tried to go for some more versatile candles as I already had quite a number of festive scents. Alongside those I ordered, I also got a free Christmas eve sampler which was a great surprise!
Next, I got four small jar candles in Pineapple Cilantro, Lavender, Angels Wings and Mango Peach Salsa. Again, these are all much more summery and versatile scents as I didn't have as many of them in my collection.
Finally, I got my hands on the free gift set! I will most probably be giving away the majority of this stuff but I do love a good freebie! In this set, I got two wax tarts in Snow In Love and Madagascan Orchid. I really like how this set included both festive and more versatile scents too! Next, there were three samplers in Red Apple Wreath, Midnight Jasmine, and Christmas Cookie. There was also a small jar candle in Honey Glow and a medium jar candle in Pink Sands. Finally, there was a Christmas Cookie car air freshener which I gave to my lovely mother. All in all, I think this was a great set to receive and I am so happy I got it all for free! On top of all of these lovely candles, the bag that they came in was really quite cute and something that I feel I might actually use! I always feel that when you receive a free bag, it's never really that good. However, I was really quite pleased with this one and am very happy with my order.
I hope that you enjoyed this haul and I shall be back soon with some more festive posts!
