February 1, 2015
I wanted to do a quick post because a few of my readers were wondering how I was doing since I haven't been posting a lot here daily and they were nice enough to check up on me.
I am still working on getting over the flu completely...it did wear me out some and day by day I feel a bit better. The doctor told my husband and I it needs to finish running its course and we were informed that Tamiflu is NOT an antibiotic so my complaint that we were suffering for weeks was explained. My doctor is not like a lot of doctors who just orders antibiotics for everything. Granted, in this case I would have loved some but I follow his lead ...and suffer it seems.
And for the sweetie who emailed and asked about my broken toe...haha...so cute... yes it is still broken, very swollen and very painful. When I do it, I do it right.
Doctor said time will heal it...although its a month today and I wish it would hurry on up already.
My hubby also did retire from his job and that is keeping me extremely busy. Trying to figure out everything that entails is not fun, trust me....and life truly changed. It's great to have him home giving his hard over-worked body a much needed break...as we figure out the next stages of our lives. Seeing him wander around behind me while wearing jammies as I complete my daily tasks does make me laugh. He finally gets to see all there is to do in a day...and I guess it tuckers him out watching me do it...if his napping is any indication.
As for my blogging, I am constantly updating some of the scrolling blogs when new comes out online. I am also posting a lot to Face Book and Instagram as time allows so there are times I don't write out a full blog of information and just post a few Face Book updates. Every morning I check for new and now that I can get to the mall more often I try to post all that I can about my favorite obsession...B&BW.
As we know January new release signature fragrance scents were from the
Brazil Collection: Cool, Lush and Fresh
along with Brazilian Home Fragrance, White Barn Market Home Fragrances, Tiki Beach Home Fragrances and The White Barn colored glass Home Fragrance Collection...which are still arriving in stores.
The Lilac Blossom purple glass candle arrived online today so the last few still to come should be hitting all stores soon.
Then in a few days....February 9th, we will see the next release of a signature fragrances-
Love and Sunshine
It will have the Happy Home, Home Fragrance collection to go along with it as well as the Sunshine is Delicious Hand Soap and Sanitizer Collection.

My store had all but the Blue Skies and Blooms hand soap in stock now...of course the one I really wanted...so I passed on getting any of the soaps yet. They are also all online now. And if you follow me on Facebook you will see my hauls from the store when I get them.
This floor set is going to be bright and cheerful and yellow...perfect for raising up my winter blues spirits. Winter storm Linus is currently dumping a lot of the white stuff as I type. Winter Storm Juno was a few days ago.
So there will be a lot of new out in stores in the next week or so...

Yesterday I posted some pictures and more information on some new I saw. When these things are actually coming to stores...I have no idea. My purpose of posting is to let everyone know what to watch out for and to build excitement for things more than a month away.
We are going to see our first Valentine Tote bag Purchase with Purchase. Personally, I think it could have been done up a bit more feminine and pretty. I'm a girl who loves cute-sie and girly...Remember years ago they had those vinyl like event bags....something like that would have been cute. My all time favorite is the Pink Chiffon bag that had matching cosmetic bags with heart zipper pulls. And while I do like the Japanese Cherry Blossom fragrance...not everyone does. So putting it in the tote only makes its harder on sales associates who have to deal with customers exchanging them out. Maybe it would be easier to let the customer pick out a 3 piece ritual in HER favorite scent.
And there will also be a Hawaiian Aloha Bucket of 9 products coming. Again when, I am not sure. Just keep your eyes open in your stores...and if I hear, I will be sure to let it be known.
So let me thank all of you once again, for being so kind to send me messages checking up on me and for stopping by my blog and social media places. Your the best!!!
Hugs- until next time we speak...
