Bath & Body Works Haul!

Hello everyone! Last month I went to Bath and Body Works and stocked up on some goodies that I thought I would share with you today! I like going to Bath ad Body Works maybe twice a year (so I don’t go too overboard), and probably won’t go back until next year. Okay, let’s get started!

Bath & Body Works

Everything that I bought was part of a promotion, so I saved quite a bit! I believe what saved was around $68, when I spent just over $100. Not bad in my books!

Buy 3 Get 3 Free

I’ve mentioned how much I love these lotions before, so I picked up a few more! They’re the Ultra Shea Body Creams. I found that some of the ones that I had were a little heavy on the scent , so I opted to try something a little lighter this time. I’ve mentioned before that I like to keep a hand lotion at my desk at work, so I got the Warm Vanilla Sugar for that. I also bought a Pretty as a Peach one to get the deal, and found the scent was nice and light. For my third item I got the Pretty as a Peach shower gel. My sister was with me, and for her 3 she picked the Pretty as a Peach shower gel as well, a Salted Caramel Pumpkin body lotion matching shower gel. Let’s just say I got her hooked! Unfortunately I can’t find any links for that scent, so it must be discontinued, or not currently available.

$3 for $5

I picked up a few of the small hand sanitizers, which I am definitely taking to Disney! My sister got one to put on her backpack, and I got the other two. I kept the scents the same, and got two Warm Vanilla Sugar, and one Peach Bellini! We also grabbed two of the holders, which were $1 each. I can’t find a link for the plain holders either, but click here to see what it currently available.

soaps 3 for $18

As an impulse buy I decided to pick up some fall scented foaming hand soaps, because I really enjoy them! I find because they foam they last a while, and I love all the scent options they have! I picked up a Warm Vanilla Sugar, Peach Bellini, and Autumn Vines.

$2 for $28.50

Lastly I couldn’t leave Bath and Body Works without picking up a new candle. I was looking for something lighter, that I can use in between heaver scents to kind of clear the air. Because I knew they were generally part of a buy 2 deal I wanted another one that just reminded me of warmth and fall. One of my favourite things to do in the colder months is light a candle, watch some YouTube and drink tea. I grabbed a Warm Vanilla Sugar candle (can you sense a theme here?), and a Cranberry Woods one.

 

To see more about the products I picked up check out the video below!

Bath and Body Works has become one of my favourite stores, but I have to be careful around it! I hope you enjoyed a look at some of the things I picked up. 🙂 I’ve linked everything that I can find, but it is to the American website. If you are like me and happen to be in Canada, take note of that!

Have you picked up anything from Bath and Body Works lately? What’s your favourite thing they carry? Let me know in the comments!

 

Thank you so much for reading!

Monthly Favourites- September 2016

Hello everyone and Happy Fall! I’m starting to like fall more and more, so while the weather is cooling off, I’m still happy it’s not winter! Plus, it’s almost sweater weather! It’s monthly favourites time once again and I’m sharing some of my favourite things from the past month. From entertainment, to clothing and beauty, I’m sharing it all. Let’s get started!

Favourite

Entertainment

The Unbreakable Kimmy Shmidt- Ethan and I are now on season 2, and are liking it! It’s a short show and nice and light to watch at the end of the day! I like how quirky the characters are too. If you are looking for something to watch on Netflix I would recommend it!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child- As a huge Harry Potter fan I felt I had to read the newest story. I have to admit that I started it in August and wasn’t crazy about it, and put it down for about a month. In September I picked it up again and finished it quickly, because it got good! It definitely plays to fans of the original stories, so even if you are hesitant to read it, give it a try!

Gavin DeGraw- I have loved Gavin DeGraw since his very first CD. His newest release came out in September, and is called “Something Worth Saving”. If you don’t know who he is, you would probably recognize “I Don’t Wanna Be” which was the theme song to One Tree Hill. I pretty much gush over him in the video below, so if you want to hear that, check it out!

Beauty and the Beast- The 25th Anniversary dvd came out this month, so I had to pick it up! I find I’m slowly accumulating the classic Disney movies on Dvd, so I don’t have to rely on my VHS’. I enjoyed watching all of the behind the scenes from when the movie was made, and watched the movie as well :). I think Gaston is becoming one of my favourite Disney villans… who is yours?

Clothing

Kate Spade Blanket- While this isn’t a clothing item I do sort of wear this blanket and it is THE SOFTEST. I picked it up at Costco for $20 and am so happy I did. The best part is, it’s Queen sized! In the winter I generally have a blanket wrapped around me at all times, so I’m excited to use it as the weather gets colder! I can’t find a link for it anywhere but hopefully it’s still available at Costco!

Beauty

Urban Decay Setting Spray– This is the only setting product I have used, so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but I like it! It smells nice and it feels like it does a good job. I tend to touch my face a lot during the day, so it’s nice having a little bit of security! I originally bought the travel size to give it a try, and now bought the full size. I decanted a bit into the smaller one for when I am travelling, and works perfectly.

Frizz Ease syrum– I actually got this in a loot bag from an event I attended in the summer, and have been using it for a while now. I have noticed that my hair is feeling very healthy, and growing quickly! I’m not sure if there is one product that is causing it, or a combination of everything, so I thought I would share some of the things I’m using!

Tresemme spray- I use this when I get out of the shower to protect my hair from the heat of the styling tools I use, and it also helps to detangle my hair as it gets longer. I’ve used it for years, and have a stockpile of extras!

Miscellaneous

Tsum Tsum by Line Game- I’ve been playing this game for a while, and like the little dose of Disney it gives me! I explain the game a little in the video, but basically it’s a game where you connect similar characters to power up “your” character and get coins. You can then buy boxes with random tsum tsum characters in it. They sell toy versions in Disney stores, that look exactly like the characters in the game. I hope that explanation makes sense!

Just A Girl and Her Blog– Instead of a new YouTuber I thought I would share a blogger this month! I found Abby’s blog back in March when I was looking for a budget binder. I couldn’t stop reading! Her blog is one that I check practically daily, and I just love how pretty it is! She’s just moved into a new house, so I can’t wait to see her decorate it!

Monthly Favourites- August 2016

Hello friends! It’s monthly favourites time once again! I’m sharing some of my favourite things from the past month, ranging from entertainment, beauty, clothing and everything in between. I hope everyone has had an amazing summer and is ready for fall! Let’s jump right in!

Monthly Favourites August 2016

Entertainment

The O’Pears– If you watched my very first vlog, The O’pears were one of the many groups at Summerfolk this year. I really enjoyed their sets and purchased their cd while at Summerfolk, so I’ve listened to it a few times since. They are from Toronto so hopefully I will have the opportunity to see them in concert again!

Jonas Brothers- so after mentioning Nick Jonas in last month’s favourites, nostalgia hit me and made me want to go back and listen to the Jonas Brothers. Ethan and I were house sitting at the beginning of the month which meant a longer drive to work for me, so I had their cds in the car to keep me company. Especially after going so long since listening, it really brought me back to when I was a teenager “rocking” out to their music at the many concerts I went to. It was definitely fun!

New Girl- Seriously. If you haven’t seen this show, you need to! I’ve seen every episode now, and in August I realized I had the entire season from this year still on the PVR, so I watched all of it. This show is so great, I can’t say enough good things about it. If you want to know what I think is hilarious, this is it. I cry I laugh so hard. Every episode makes me laugh SO HARD. I love it. Hopefully I’m making it clear lol.

Clothing

I’m So Glad I left My Tower Tank– I picked up another shirt from Happily Ever Tees, and love this Tangled tank! Tangled is definitely up there as one of my favourite Disney movies, so I’m happy to have some merch! This tank is so subtle, and even has a hidden Pascal and frying pan! I can’t wait to wear it in Disney World! 😀 I could not find it anywhere, and their website does not have the new design on it… so you guys will just have to wait to see a picture of it when I find it!

I thought I would quickly mention that although I have picked up now 2 things from HET, I don’t think I will again. They only print a few of each size shirt, and they sell out in minutes. I tried 3 times to get a Carousel of Progress shirt for Ethan (which I grabbed at the same time as this tank), and the process was really stressful. For this reason, I will shop elsewhere. I obviously like their products, but don’t want my shopping experience to give me anxiety.

Beauty

Tea Tree Oil Squeaky Clean Scrub– I mentioned this scrub in my first empties post, and I am still loving it! I use it every other day in the shower, and it leaves my skin feeling nice and clean.

Miscellaneous

Polynesian Candle– this candle smells SO GOOD! I picked it up from Walter Rosie Candle Co, and absolutely love it! My sister bough a bunch of wax melts to use in her Party Lite Warmer, all Disney themed of course!

YouTube App- I thought I would mention how much I love the YouTube app. I love scrolling through my “home page” to see what it recommends for me, and I definitely like what it picks! It’s actually how I found both of the YouTubers I’m mentioning this month!

Aspyn + Parker– with three channels between them, I’ve been watching a bit of all three. I like their vlog style videos the most. I find it really cool to watch people that are really successful in the YouTube world, and especially these two who are so young!

Makeup by Tffany D– I’ve said before that I am definitely a newb when it comes to makeup, so watching her videos has definitely taught me some things! I believe I watched a Q&A from her first (of all things to watch when you have no idea who this person is), and have watched a couple other videos by her.

I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a look at some of my favourites from last month! If you’d like to hear a little more, check out the video below:
