Bath & Body Works | What is next??

December 20, 2014
With Holiday at Bath and Body Works coming to a close in the next few days, I wanted to get a post up about what we should be seeing next.
Today was Super Saturday and while some of the sales of the day were changed; my store was extremely busy with shoppers looking to grab the Buy 3 get 3 free Signatures, $12.00 candles, and the Super Saturday Bucket.
Hopefully on Monday, stores carrying the holiday blanket will have them out for sale; $15.00 with a $30 purchase. Had they offered them today I would have bought one with my $50.00 purchase.
Then we will see the Semi Annual Sale items begin to show up.  Online on Christmas Eve  I heard and in stores December 26th.
My store put out a lot of the items we should be seeing for SAS as fillers for the empty shelves after this weeks sales and I must say it was nice seeing these past months items once more.  I grabbed a Paris Amour Candle from the Destinations line today. Not that I like the scent, I like the label and I have that jar lid topper with the Eiffel Tower on it and I thought it made a nice set. 
I mentioned in an earlier post the Signature Fragrances that are leaving the shelves:
Amber Blush
Country Chic
Pure Paradise
Add to those, two men's Signature Fragrances are also leaving:
Twilight Woods
Dark Amber

 When the three signatures go.....they recommend these other scents to fill that for amber blush they suggest cashmere glow, twilight woods, wild Madagascar vanilla

for pure paradise its endless weekend or COOL amazon rain (coming)

but for Country Chic....they suggest white citrus and in February.....Love & Sunshine.
Now I can't be sure yet if all of these scents will become online exclusives or not, so should you want to stock up SAS is the time to do it.
Coming Back for Home Fragrance we could see these collections:
Candles and Hand Soaps so far
Coastal Cool
Fresh Picked
Garden Party
Summer Sips
White Barn
I saw a wall of the hand soaps in store today, along with the Pocketbacs. Keep in mind all stores are different so what I see in mine may vary from what your stores get.
Returning Signature Body Care 
In what forms I am not sure yet.
Violet Lily Sky
Pear Blossom Air

Bath & Body Works | Shopping

December 14, 2014
'Twas the day after candle day and all through the store,
a few customers were stirring, still looking for more....
New coupons and discounts were had in email,
and the clerks at the counter were still frazzled and pale...
When what to my wandering eyes did appear....
but a sign for $12 buck candles and 120 new cases sitting near....
Yes, okay I am being silly...the first day I felt well enough to venture out for more than five minutes.  Tomorrow is biopsy day....positive and healing thoughts please...I would appreciate it....
Now, back to the store... The counters, tables and walls were almost bare.  Like a team of locusts, we shoppers were hungry for wax and we shopped and bought and drained them.
I saw the SA coming over putting the $12.00 signage for the almost bare table and asked her how the day was going.  She said there are more candles coming, 120 cases tomorrow....apparently the truck broke down before delivery so they are coming tomorrow.  Which doesn't help those who wanted more Christmas candles yesterday and kept asking for them...but it is still great news because I wanted a few more.
Now the candles I saw yesterday in all of the scents collections I mentioned, I am sure we will still be seeing them by the end of the month.
So all of those Collections; Provence, Fresh Picked, Destinations, Artisan, White Barn, Coastal Cool, and Summer Sips to name a few.. should still be around.  I know from reading posts on social media, not everyone is happy to see them and they wanted others. Wouldn't it be great to see some test store scents that we wanted and that didn't make the cut show up?  Its odd isn't it....they put the scents in a store...and people buy them... yet they don't launch them nationwide.  They weren't pulled back from sales...they just were sold were not everyone can get them.
Todays store email was a mystery discount: and mine was for 20% off. 
And there was another coupon offered today via this link below, where you can get a A thousand Wishes product free (valued to $14.00) with any purchase after sharing your email address.
So that is what I got today, the crystal confetti hair and body spray and I got the FFM free.  I added two boxes of matches because they are so cute.
Now this is the time of year where things will settle down a bit at the BBW.  They will be gearing up for Super Saturday...on December 20th and we should be seeing a few more deals daily...and then its clearance out the holiday along with SAS.... 
Before we see anything new, new.
There is one more Bucket of favorites coming for Super Saturday....and we still haven't seen the triple layer candle so I bet that will come out then.
I cant think if there is anything else I am missing.
Michaels Craft store is having 60% off Christmas so if your in need of anything the store here still had a great selection.  I only grabbed some bows and the gift boxes...(and a cobble stone roll of vinyl for my village).

Bath & Body Works | $8.00candle day Again | SAS candles too

December 13, 2014
I have nothing much to complain about... I mean how many people got to have $8.00 candle day twice at Bath & Body Works...and better yet...a different selection of scents to chose from. These were my Friday's Purchases.
Last night the email I received was for the $8.00 candle sale.  So what the SA's in the store were saying was store wasn't suppose to have candle day yesterday, ours was $2.50 hand soap day. But because the emails went out to some for candles, they honored both sales...and $5.00 sleeves.
I was told that they thought today was our scheduled candle day so I called this morning and sure enough, it was.  Still no Holly Freakin' Jolly candles...(okay I guess that is considered a complaint, ha ha) But I planned on checking out the store anyway after I met with my sister out of town to get her holiday gifts to her before any bad snowstorms come or surgery lays me up for a time.
This mall, as you would expect was beyond busy...and Bath and Body Works here today was INSANE.  People again grabbing anything they can get their hands on....and the staff busy unloading case after case of candles.
As soon as I saw the heart skipped a beat...because I knew what I was looking at.  And it was a great thing mind you...because the Christmas candles were pretty picked out and sold...but who expects to see SAS candles that I knew were coming back at the end of the month out now?
When I made that picture post yesterday of the Semi Annual Sale info:
{by the way I know I put jingle bell belini instead of Jingle Bellini... adding the bell and misspelling bellini...geesh people are sooo critical}
 I knew that we would be seeing the Provence line and the Coastal Cool line coming back in home fragrance.  Seeing these others....Summer Sips, Garden Party, Fresh Picked, Destinations, and the Artisan....this definitely led me to think that they will also be returning at the end of this month.
And truth be told....It made me smile.  I don't know if its the time of year or what....And I did enjoy some of the candles from each of these lines...but I found myself more interested in smelling and buying these today than I did when they were originally out and then on clearance.
A few people asked me for help in finding things, and when I was done I asked the SA for the new travel sized trio fragrances because I couldn't find them.  They were suppose to be out but the staff didn't know where to put them so they didn't bring them out. Can't sell them in the back room....
I grabbed one of each scent and form in the travels,
And added a $5.00 sleeve, two hand soaps and used my free item coupon on the merry cookie mason jar candle and saved $15.00.
In between running for things the register girls needed, this one SA was running frazzled helping customers and stocking candles....
It is something to see....candle sale day.  People are different.  Some are rude and obnoxious while others get this community kind of behavior each helping the other find that perfect gift.  My hubby sat on the bench outside of the store watching me he said.  It was the first time in some time I was smiling he told me.  Later I got to get my picture taken with Santa at Walmart.
I snapped a few pictures of what was out to share. 
Please don't feel the need, {you know who you are} to comment about the blurriness of some pictures.  I don't always get to see they are when I am trying to sneak a picture, without glasses on, in a crowded store....until I get home.  And someone felt the need to comment that it would be nice for all of my pictures to be crystal clear so those who see them can see all of the details in the photo, that my blurry photos ruin it on them...
To that I have this to say...Sorry, My camera crew is on advice is to go to the store yourself and look... and stop poking the bear.
This is what I got as my second purchase today:
Five candles, and got that Holiday mason as my other free item, and used my $15.00 off of $40 coupon.
