Bath & Body Works Home Stuff Haul!

Hi everyone!
Hope your week is off to a good start! Just wanted to share with you some things I picked up from Bath  & Body Works! With the exception of the hand sanitizers, it's home-related stuff... not so much bath and shower stuff. As I said on Beauty Broadcast Live recently, I have tons of shower stuff to use up so I kept myself from getting those sorts of things! But if you haven't been to B&BW lately, I thought you might be interested to see some of the new scents that are coming out. I can't believe I'm already seeing the fall stuff, but the lady there said even more pumpkin-related scents would be coming in a few weeks! The 20% coupon she gave me (for Sept. 9- Oct. 6) mentions some scents like Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, Blueberry Pumpkin Patch, Pumpkin Cupcake.... looking forward to those!
In case you're not familiar, Wallflowers are little glass jars of scented oil that twist into a Wallflower diffuser (which goes into your outlet), and they fill your room with great scents. Pretty much anytime someone comes to our house, they mention that it smells good... I have a Wallflower in the entry way ;) and now I don't want to disappoint! Anyway, the deal on Wallflowers is six for $24 - I got a mix of some summertime scents and a few of the new fall ones that I saw (I believe the last three are fall scents). I'm just not quite ready to make the entire house smell like pumpkin spice :) You can click the picture to enlarge, but the scents I got are Strawberry Picnic, Lakeside, Watermelon Lemonade, Heirloom Pear, Farmstand Apple, and Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin. Besides the pumpkin one, these are all new to me! But judging by the scent of the coordinating candles, these all seem SO good! Watermelon Lemonade didn't have a scent to test... but just looking at the name, I think it'll be right up my alley.
I'm still working through some triple-wick and Better Homes & Gardens candles at my house, so I didn't go crazy with new candles... however these super cute mason jar candles caught my eye. They were 2 for $15 and are actually a pretty decent-sized candle (label says it burns approx. 30-40 hours). I got Harvest Coffee and Marshmallow Fireside. I LOVE the idea of a coffee-scented candle. This is described as a "rich, robust blend of coffee beans topped off by creamy vanilla foam." I like that you can definitely pick up on the coffee scent, but it's not too overpowering, and a little bit sweet. Marshmallow Fireside is one of my favorite scents!! I just found this one randomly in the store with no others around it... so glad I did! My larger candle in this scent makes even large rooms in my house smell awesome. It's described as a "warm blend of toasted marshmallows, smoldering woods, and creamy vanilla."
These PocetBac hand sanitizers are 5 for $5, and I went with the new fall-type scents...they are Aspen Autumn Day, Heartland Harvest Marmalade, Georgia Bourbon Peach, Sonoma Vineyard Berries, and Montana Mountain Air. The only one I've used so far is the Bourbon Peach and I love it!! Fruity with a little twang ;) At first whiff, I think I'm going to like the others too, but it's hard to tell exactly what they smell like until you actually put them on your hands- otherwise the scent out of the bottle is a bit too strong to tell. 

Have you been shopping at B&BW recently? What scents are you loving? Thanks for stopping by the blog!!

Daily Nuggets...
  • Thanks for the great response to the "YouTube Made Me Buy It" video! I'm so glad you're enjoying it and I hope others will make it as well. KristinGehm & 83Pavs were the first people I watched do it! :) I linked to their videos in the info box of mine, if you want to check them out!
  • Tyler & I were looking for something to watch on Netflix last night and ended up browsing the "Classics"... he had never seen Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, so we watched that and both went to bed a little freaked out. 
  • Do you ever sit in a funny position for a long time and not even realize it? I think I haven't moved since typing this post (I tend to get in the zone) and my back hurts!
  • I'm wearing a purple mascara on my lower lashes today, but can hardly tell :( I even used a white primer! I'll review my Great Lash colored mascaras on my blog once I try the teal one.

  1. I LOVE the fall scents at Bath and Body Works. Pumpkin caramel latte is my favorite I'm so happy they're bringing it back this year. And the new pumpkin scents smell AMAZING I can't wait to stock up!

  2. I'll have to go grab one of those marshmallow candles if I can find one! I'm loving that they brought back Juniper Breeze for a limited time. I missed that one so I snagged a few bottles of lotion last time I was in the store! :)

  3. I snagged a tiny Watermelon Lemonade candle on clearance for $2 a couple of weeks back and it smells amazing! I've never tried any of the Wallflowers, but I think I shall!

  4. Ah, Marshmallow Fireside is super! I have a room spray then I use constantly. I'm going to have to check out the wallflowers, they sound wonderful.

    I've used the portable scents in the car and they've worked really great. And B&BW sells the cutest holders for them.

  5. I went yesterday and stocked up on the antibacterial hand soaps in the fall scents. They were 7 for $20. I am always getting sucked in by the new scents.

  13. I have scents for every single season. That includes body wash, body spray, candles and tarts. But around this time all the pumpkin spice or the apple cranberry smells come out and I CAN NOT resist the awesome fall smells! I have been using B&BW Sweet cinnamon pumpkin for fall for about 4 years and it is my go to must have fall smell. I usually add a tiny oil dab of patchouli and it is a dream fall scent. Also, on another store note. If you love fall scents like I do Yankee candle has some awesome fall candles out for this year. My favorite this year so far is the Mountain Lodge, Pumpkin Wreath, Harvest, Autumn Leaves and Patchouli. This year they actually pulled off perfect fall scents. I couldn't help myself. Though, I am still on my favorite summer/clean scents. I couldn't resist buying a couple fall scents.

  15. Been wanting to go to b&bw-use the pocket Sanitizer at work. The Birds is so creepy! Movie trivia-Melanie Griffiths mother is in that movie. Technology has come a long way on special effects from when that movie was made!

  18. I hardly ever shop at B&B because I forget about it! There are SO many great scents in this post so I've got to get out and check them out! I love candles and scented oils and things like that, too!

    The only time my family and I ever watched The Birds we looked out the back door after the movie ended and OUR ENTIRE YARD WAS FULL OF BLACK BIRDS. It was so eery!! We are all a little freaked after that, haha!

  20. I loved the Marshmallow Fireside candle. I saved one to burn all summer until they came out with it again during the winter (in stores). I'm glad they bought it back earlier !

  21. I have way to many candles its almost unhealthy but I did recently pop into BBW and pick up the new sandalwood citrus candle and its amazing, smells like a mans cologne but on the light side. I am really excited about the new fall line coming out in a few weeks!!!
    Funny that you mentioned sitting in one position for a long time, I have been while reading blogs and my neck is crazy in pain now! haha

  22. Oh no, the fall scents at Bath and Body Works are my weakness. ESPECIALLY the pumpkin ones. I have a plan though: I want to go in and shop in early November, get a million coupons from them, and use them all together when Black Friday comes around! I get the absolute best deals from there when I'm able to stack coupons.

    Can't wait to stock up on candles and wallflowers,

  25. Thanks for reminding me to check out the fall scents! Marshmallow Fireside sounds wonderful. My favorite BBW scent of all time is Vanilla Bean Noel! I love the entire line,especially the candles and body creme. I honestly buy 15 jars of it every Winter! I love vanilla and layer it with all my fragrances that have vanilla notes in them. Its not too sweet, just creamy and dreamy with a touch of caramel!

  26. I have about 20 of the 3-wick candles around my house, and a drawer full of wallflower refills, so I didn't need any of those. Still I recently made an online order to get some of the hand sanitizes and their foaming soaps, plus some cute soap sleeves.

  27. Next time you are looking for something to watch on Metflix definitely go for "Arrested Development", that is if you haven't already. It has a very dry sense of humor it should be right up your alley.

  28. I've been using the Watermelon & Strawberry plug-ins all summer, their amazing!! Can't wait to try the Coffee candle!

    ReplyDelete
  29. If you love coffee scents, you would LOVE "Perk Me Up" by Scentsy! And I think the Whoot (owl) warmer OR the Cupcake warmer would look so precious in your makeup room!!!

  30. I'm always so eager for the fall scents to come out; but i'm not eager to let go of Summer Time either. I did pick up some fall wallflowers the other day and i bought two deozen of the pocketbacs for my daughter bday party goodie bags to her friends (I believe she picked out dazzling diamonds for all her little friends) I did have to force myself not to buy bath & body items (way to many on the shelves in the bathroom and i actually got out of there not buying one candle. Falls scents i like are the pumpkin cupcake and marshmallow fireside for sure!

  33. I would love to stop by. But, I think it might have to wait until this summer. I did not know that Serlkay had ever expanded its size. I must say that a succesful family owned business in this day and age is a very refreshing sight! As well as this is a very refreshing site!foreign exchange comparison
