Fall Items Arrive at Bath & Body Works



Vanilla Berry Sorbet, Coconut Cabana, Peach Pecan Cupcake, Graham Cracker Marshmallow PocketBac & Pumpkin Pecan Waffles 3-Wick Candle  


If you're like me, you are already sick of this hot summer weather and anxiously awaiting fall.  So imagine my delight when I found out Bath & Body Works has already started putting out some of their fall products! Their Fall line is always my favorite, so I'd be very happy if I could buy them year round. I was burning my leftover Pumpkin Cupcake candle and since it was my last one, I was anxious to stock up again.  More of the Fall line will arrive on August 4th and I can't wait. I've heard of some really interesting new scents which I will list below and can't wait to take a sniff. The above order cost only $11.73 including shipping and tax. I used a coupon from RetailMeNot.com for a free candle and Mr. Rebates for cash back. Be sure to always find a coupon before shopping at Bath & Body Works. The coupons even work on sale items.

The following Fall scents are currently available online:
  1. Pumpkin Apple
  2. Pumpkin Sugared Donut
  3. Pumpkin Pecan Waffles
  4. Pumpkin Cupcake
  5. Pumpkin Caramel Latte
  6. Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin
  7. Heirloom Pumpkin
  8. Apple Crumble (only wallflower)
  9. Leaves
  10. Green Apple Orchard
I wasn't able to find them in my local store, but I've heard that some stores are carrying some of the above scents now. I highly recommend Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, Pumpkin Cupcake, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Apple Crumble and Leaves.  Pumpkin Cupcake & Pumpkin Pecan Waffles are very strong candles and are perfect for very large rooms.  I can't wait to try Pumpkin Sugared Donut and Pumpkin Caramel Latte.  I plan to purchase those as soon as they go on sale.

These are the scents I've heard will be hitting stores shortly:  
  1. Spiced Pumpkin Cider
  2. Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow
  3. Caramel Pumpkin Swirl
  4. Pumpkin Cinnamon Bun
  5. Sweater Weather
  6. Salted Caramel Corn
  7. Tailgate
  8. Autumn Sky
  9. Trick or Treat
I can't wait to try the Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow, Caramel Pumpkin Swirl, Pumpkin Cinnamon Bun & Salted Caramel Corn. I'll have to smell Tailgate and Autumn Sky in person before purchasing since I'm not so sure about those.  Lots of people love Sweater Weather, but I don't recall liking it last year.  I'll have to give it another sniff this year since so many people love that one.

Another line is suppose to arrive on August 4th and includes the following:
  1. Banana Nutmeg Bread Pudding
  2. Wasabi Apple
  3. Sea Salt & Maple Popcorn
  4. Vanilla Chai
  5. Blackberry Bramble Tea
  6. Cayenne Caramel
I can't wait to try the Banana Nutmeg Bread Pudding candle! I've always wondered why they didn't have a banana bread candle which is my favorite Yankee Candle scent. I can't wait to try the Vanilla Chai one also. The Wasabi Apple, Cayenne Caramel and Blackberry Bramble Tea candles sound very interesting. I'll have to smell those in person before purchasing. 

There are also some interesting scents coming out in the lotion, mist, shower gel & soap lines which are called the "Artisan Market" line. My coupon from today's order includes the following preview:  Sweet Plum & Verbena, Lemon Pomegranate, Peach & Honey Almond, Apple Blossom & Lavender, Gingered Peach, Brown Sugar & Carrots and Pear.

What scents are you most excited about?  Be sure to follow my Bath & Body Works Pinterest Board for more insider information!

Coupons - $10 off $30 or more "F142953" from August 4th - September 2nd.
                  20% off any online purchase "SUNNYJULY" from now until September 30th

Patriotic Custom Dog Outfits & Bows



Vest by Olivia's Doggie Designs



Bows by Val's Dog Bows


The above vest for the patriotic American holidays is custom made by Sandy of Olivia's Doggie Designs and available for purchase at her Etsy shop.  Simply send your dog's measurements and she will custom make a vest or dress for your dog!  I also ordered a St. Patrick's Day vest for Teddy which can be seen on my Instagram account, click here to see it.  She is very prompt in her delivery and does quality work. I highly recommend her dog outfits!  They have machine washed in my HE washer on delicate well.

I have been purchasing dog bows from Val for over ten years now and she's the only one I purchase my dog bows from.  Currently there is about a one month wait after you make your purchase, but it is worth the wait. Her bows are of superior quality which last a very long time.  I recommend removing them if your dog is going outside in the rain. She ships them in a box so they don't get crushed.  The above bows can be purchased on her website.  If you want them sooner, check out what she has available on ebay.  

For my American subscribers, I hope you have a Happy 4th of July!

Sephora by OPI - Go with the Flow-er




Above is one of my manicures for the month of April. Go with the Flow-er is one of my favorite polishes. I used it so much that I actually bought a second bottle when I found out Sephora lost their contract with OPI and wouldn't be selling it anymore. If you can get your hands on a bottle from a blog sale or trade, I highly recommend you don't hesitate doing so! I bought my second bottle from HauteLook. It's a pretty coral color with ultra fine fuchsia glitter. In bright light it looks a slightly neon coral color and in less light it looks like a non neon pink toned coral. It's a bright, happy color that puts me in a better mood for sure! Do you have polishes that make you feel better? A nice fresh manicure always makes me feel better, but some colors are even more effective such as this one.  This one took three coats for complete opacity. I used Seche Vite for the top coat. Unfortunately, I don't remember how long this manicure lasted because I went to the emergency room that week and was in pain for over two weeks. I had to remove it at some point during that period of time. Got several compliments at the ER though. I do remember it chipping sooner than other Sephora by OPI polishes.  

I have over sixty manicures featured on this blog. Take a quick glance at them all on my Pinterest Manicure Board. Then simply click on the ones you want to read about on my blog, since they are linked to the matching blog post. Also, check out my Nail Polish Collection. I'm selling some of my new & used nail polish on my Blog Sale, see them all on my Nail Polish For Sale Pinterest Board.  I plan to update my blog sale photos soon.

Bath & Body Works - Endless Weekend Collection



Endless Weekend Shower Gel, Fine Fragrance Mist & Body Lotion


As a Bath & Body Works Insider, I was sent the above products for review. I love their shower gels and body lotions, so I was excited to try out the new line called Endless Weekend which just hit store shelves. Their description of the scent is "bursting with fresh summer mandarin, sun-kissed magnolia and raspberry lychee sorbet, this fragrance is finished with a breeze of coconut water and vanilla sandalwood."  The shower gel is very refreshing & has a fresh clean scent. It reminds me of the fragrance you smell when you walk into a hotel or health club that has an indoor pool. It reminds me of being on vacation! So it would be perfect to take on vacation during the summer months. The body lotion & the fragrance mist smell mostly floral to me. I find the magnolia and sandalwood are strongest in that formulation.  So if you love those floral scents, give it a try! What's your favorite new fragrance from Bath & Body Works?

They are on sale right now!  Bath & Body Works is offering the following: buy three and get three free or buy two and get one free. Also, don't forget to use a coupon via RetailMeNot.com and Mr. Rebates for cash back! The current coupon is "SUNNY" which gives you an additional 20% off and free shipping on orders over $50.  Also, coupon code "SUNNY25" gives you 20% off and $1 shipping for orders over $25.

Since this is one of my favorite stores to shop at, I have many Bath & Body Works hauls featured on this blog. Check out my previous posts:

Fortune Cookie Soap Summer Box - Candy Aisle



Shown above is the summer edition of a subscription box from Fortune Cookie Soap.  It's a quarterly subscription for $19.99.  This is my favorite subscription box right now.  Included in the summer box were the following:
  1. Lick Your Lips - Fortune Cookie Soap, full size
  2. Lemon Drop It Like It's Hot - Microdermabrasion Facial Scrub
  3. Lollipop Your Cherry - OCD Hand Sanitizer
  4. The Sweet Spot - Sparkle Me
  5. Dubble Bubble - gum
  6. Blow Me! - Lip Scrub, full size
  7. Dum - Dums - lollypop
  8. Captain's Berried Booty - Whipped Body Butter
  9. Sweet Dreamsicle - Wax Melt
  10. Rock Your Socks Off - Solid Sugar Scrub
  11. Coupon - $10 off 
The fortune cookie shaped soap smells exactly like mint chocolate chip ice cream. It's divine! I can't wait to order some body butter & shower gel in that scent! So yummy! Hubby requested to use it right away. I had to tell him he will have to wait till he uses up the current soap before he can use this one. They last a really long time, so it will be a long wait. The fortune inside says "If you didn't get caught, did you really do it?". The facial scrub has a nice lemon scent and works well. The hand sanitizer smells like cherry cough syrup. This will be going right in the car for use after shopping.  The Sparkle Me smells mostly like melon to me and it has very fine glitter which would be nice in the sunlight or candlelight. I haven't had Dubble Bubble gum or a Dum-Dums lollypop in a really long time. The lip scrub works really well and very quickly. It smells exactly like bubble gum and I will be purchasing that in the body butter & shower gel for sure. The whipped butter smells so delicious! This is my favorite scent in the summer box. This one I highly recommend! It's suppose to smell like a sugary childs' cereal. I've only eaten them a couple times in my life, so I can't comment if it smells like it. I just know it smells so yummy. It's described as a fruity, berry scent with vanilla, raspberry and tonka bean notes. It also has a long lasting scent. I look forward to trying out the sugar scrub tonight in the shower after exercising. You can't go wrong with the following scents:  Lick Your Lips, Blow Me! and Captain's Berried Booty.

Tomorrow night, the 23rd of May at 6:30 pm CT, they will be having an online party showing off the new products and having giveaways. I invite you to join me and learn more about their products.  After the launch party they will add the new summer line to their website for purchase. If you are interested in purchasing some, I highly recommend you order at that time because things sell out so quickly. They will add more quantity to their website after a couple of weeks, if you miss out.  Visit their Facebook page for more information.

For those that are curious as to the reason for my absence since the beginning of March, I was ill with five health issues including a trip to the emergency room. It was a snowball effect with one problem after another with no break in between. I was also busy visiting a relative in the hospital. I'm just starting to feel like myself now, but still have a lingering cough from pneumonia.

Update - Tried out the Rock Your Socks Off Sugar Scrub and it's wonderful.  It's not scratchy or rough like others and very moisturizing.  It's smells so yummy, exactly like grape juice.  Now I'm craving some grape juice!

Free Bath & Body Works French Lavender 3-Wick Candle



French Lavender 3-Wick Candle and French Lavender & Honey Body Lotion




Bath & Body Works is offering a free French Lavender 3-Wick Candle with any purchase today only in stores. I received a complimentary one as shown above a few days ago as a Bath & Body Works Insider.  It smells just like lavender essential oil and it's delightful. The description says it has a hint of vanilla, but I'm not smelling it. They also have them on sale for only $10 each, if you would like to purchase additional ones or order online. If you order online, be sure to find a coupon on RetailMeNot.com and use Mr. Rebates for cash back. They also scent me a complimentary bottle of the Lavender & Honey Body Lotion to try out.  I find it has less of the lavender essential oil scent and more of the lily of the valley and white oak musk scent. The description is a blend of French lavender, lily of the valley and nectarine de Provence warmed with honey and white oak musk. It says it provides sixteen hours of moisture and is infused with Shea Butter, Vitamin E & B5. The Body & Bath line of French Lavender is currently on sale buy three, get three free. Lavender is one of my favorite scents, so hopefully they will keep this one around awhile. What's your favorite scent from their line of products?
