Thanksgiving and Black Friday Shopping | 2014

November 28, 2014
 
I sat here for the past hour, writing a blog talking about my ER trip and my Black Friday Shopping only to have saved it...then by accident deleted it....so I will skip all of that and show you my quick visit to Bath and Body Works purchases.
 
I must say, the sales associates were so very helpful today in seeing me in my collar, one grabbed a tote and helped me fill it, reaching up on the top shelves getting my candles and the other who checked me out made sure I didn't lift the two heavy large bags and carried them out to my husband waiting on the bench outside of the store.
 
 
 
 
I am disappointed that this WISH candle did not come with a pretty sparkly lid that I think the others will have when they release in December.
 
 
 
I was going to use the coupon for the $11.00 but I was told I could then not stack any other coupons. The same would be if I tried to use the (expired on Wednesday $10.00 Made with Love coupon...they wouldn't apply to these)
 
 So I got 6 candles...(the black tie is already wrapped for my brother...shhhhh) at buy three get three free which made each candle $11.25.  Twenty five cents more than the coupon would be but it allowed me to save $$$ more in the long run.
 
And I added in the VIP and used a few 10 off of $30 coupons.
 
And coming home to find a gift for me waiting on the porch from Bath and Body Works made my day even better....headaches and all.
 
 
The best gift you can ever get is the one you pass up on for yourself when your busy getting things for others.
 
Heartfelt thanks to Bath and Body Works for this beautiful and thoughtful give.

Bath & Body Works | Instagram | A thousand wishes gift for me

November 28, 2014
 
A few weeks ago I received a personal message on Instagram from the Bath and Body Works IG page telling me this:
 
 
I was so surprised, I contacted them and they then said in the next few weeks they would be sending me a surprise.
 
Even though I was so excited I could burst, I didn't want to mention anything until I saw it was really going to happen.
 
Today when I came home I found a box from Bath and Body Works sitting on my front porch and inside I found this beautiful white gift box and beneath the gingham tissue papers were a Bottle of Fine Fragrance Mist and a bottle of the Eau De Parfum in the A Thousand Wishes scent.
 
 
I have seen the bottle in store briefly as I have loaded up my bags of other treasures for everyone else not taking the time for me. But up close this little parfum bottle is really so feminine and gorgeous, with its pink sparkled ribbon and plum colored bow, this is definitely too pretty to sit on a shelf in a closet.  This is what mirrored trays are made for.
 

 
I cannot thank Bath and Body Works enough for this wonderful surprise gift from their heart... for something I do daily from my heart.... in sharing all of the bubbles news on all social media sites.... 
I appreciate their #generosity so much and the timing was perfect. 
Many thanks Bath and Body Works...and Merry Christmas.

Bath & Body Works | Trademark Finds

November 23, 2014
 
A few new names found
 


Bath & Body Works | Holiday to come

November 23, 2014
I can't believe that this week is Thanksgiving.  This year flew as far as I am concerned and this years Bath and Body Works Holiday season seems short to me too.
 
Short...but wonderful.  I am loving all of the gift giving products they have come out with so far with just a few more tricks up their sleeves for December.  I can't wait!
 
I have been feeling under the weather health wise lately so getting my living area Christmas tree up has been a struggle.  Migraines are no fun!!!  So when I have to stop what I am doing to close my eyes for a bit I am planning out whose going to get what.  Usually by this time of year my shopping is done and all that is left to do is the baking.  This year, I am dragging. But I was thinking for the girls on my list who love all things pampering...
 
 Spa baskets
Big, thick fluffy towels...and all of those things to make your bath your own little getaway.  I will be sure to take pictures as I fill them.
 
I was in the store shopping for only a few minutes today...(headache) and the store was jammed with noisy customers filling up blue mesh bags.  I saw a few new mason jars in the Made with Love collection out and I grabbed the Mint Mocha Bark as my free item with todays email coupon offer....and since the wallflowers were back on a $3.00 sale I grabbed a few of those too.  I did get one of the c7 light Wallflowers and a pocketbac holder and used another coupon and got it for $5.00. 
 
  
 
Tonight there is a floor set and its just a few tables of Holiday Traditions moving to the front of the store, the shimmer creams coming out, the winter candy apple jingle soap, holiday and evergreen candles come out...and a few other things.  My store should be getting the Champagne colored Smart Soap dispenser tomorrow and I cant wait to get that.
 
I was told that the stores are opening Thanksgiving Night at 5pm and there will be some sales....like the wallflower twin pack for $5.00.  But at 2am all store sales will cease as they prepare for Black Friday.
And then we will see everything in store become buy 3 get 3 free....and
The VIP tote will be offered.
 
HOLIDAY WISH: I wish for celebrations full of happiness and good cheer. The festive scent of golden apples, deep green pine notes, and glimmering amber, will make your holiday wishes come true.
 
 
  Forever Red Preview Eau de Parfum - Signature Collection - Bath & Body Works 
 
Now...still to come out is that triple layer candle I mentioned back in September...red white and green colored, layered winter candy apple, vanilla bean noel and twisted peppermint.  When, I cannot be sure.
 
Also the pedestal with the bear candle on it December 4th - the 6th.
 
Holly Jolly Christmas Candle will be out for the December 12th $8.00 candle sale.
 

 
 
The candle collection with the glittered lids come out in December.
 
Holiday III will consist of these fragrances:
 
Kiss: Pink Jasmine and Blackberry- pink jasmine, luscious blackberry, sparkling bergamot

Love: Champagne and Iced Plum- sparkling champagne, iced plum, juicy pomegranate

Wish: Vanilla and Apple Fizz- dazzling vanilla, apple fizz, Asian pear, winter freesia

Candle Blog Sale

November 19, 2014
 
I  am starting this Candle blog sale off with some 4 ounce candles from Bath and Body Works and when these filled by me boxes sell I will move on to the 3 wick jars. The three wicks will be sold separately.
 
What I am doing with these are loading up a flat rate box of candles and whatever is inside of it is what you will get for the price shown.
 
Having close to 100+  4oz candles I cannot have emails coming with a bunch of different scents listed and selling out and then trying to fill partial orders.  It's no fun for me or you, the buyer. So these will be sold in lots. Keep in mind the size of a wax melt and its cost when comparing it to this.
 
Now regarding the candles...I know everyone loves the bigger jars but this size was very popular at one time...hence the bunches of them I have.  Some I kept and collected to use as a reference of scents and the rest I burned or cut up and put in my wax burner.
 
I did keep these all in a cabinet and over time the lids don't stay as shiny....I did wipe every jar down and made them shiny...but they may turn not so shiny again.  This in no way affects the usefulness of the candle. And a few of them may have had a in store coupon on the lid that was removed.
 
Retail on these was $9.50 and then $10.00 each.
 
I have a lot of candles to box so keep checking back to see what new is listed.
