I went to Bath and Body Works the other day and took advantage of the buy 1 get 1 free for the holiday traditions.  The sale was for any of the products, not just lotions, shower gels, and bubble baths.  I picked up:
2 Twisted Peppermint Shower Gels
2 Twisted Peppermint Body Lotions
2 Vanilla Bean Noel Body Lotions
2 Pink Sugar Plum anti-bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap
2 Vanilla Bean Noel anti-bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap
2 Vanilla Cookie reindeer soap
2 Be Enchanted Shower Gels  (3oz)
1 Be Enchanted Body Lotions (3oz)
1 Strawberry Sparkler Body Lotion (3oz)
1 VanillaTini Body Lotion (3oz)
1 Jingle Bellini Body Lotion (3oz)
2 Jolly Gingerbread Cookie PocketBac
2 Winter Cranberry PocketBac
1 Mistletoe Kiss PocketBac
1 Sticky Toffee Pudding 14.5oz Candle

This seems like a ton but it really isn’t and I got great prices for it all.  I needed more Christmas presents and well B&BW is a great place to get little gifts.  Face it everyone could use some soap or hand sanitizer in my line of work, it’s enough to brighten anyone’s day!  I place a new soap in the workroom just about every month.

I’m going to try something a little different this time.  I am not going to add pictures to this post and write separate posts for each item or by fragrance.  I hope this will encourage me to write more reviews and not just list things you can read on websites already.

To my readers:snowflake small
I have to say Happy Holidays to you all! No matter what you celebrate just enjoy the season! I love this time of year because of all the busy shoppers, being able to burn pine scented candles and it cools down here in the sunshine state. I celebrate Christmas so of course I am busy baking cookies and decorating the house and tree. I do not get to enjoy the winter weather like people up North but I pretend with my light up snowflakes. =)

yankee christmas treeHere’s my Yankee Candle tea light holder/ luminary I got for a present last year from my mother in law and a YC SoHo line Ivy and Mistletoe medium tumbler I purchased from T. J. Maxx a while back. These are on the bar.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy your December! Take advantage of the great deals at your favorite stores and be safe!

Wow what a crazy Thanksgiving weekend this has been!  I had cooked for two days straight, ate my weight in turkey and baked goods, nephew sat and now my weekend is over!  I didn’t forget about Black Friday!  I wanted to share what I picked up at Midnight.

Walmart =\=
Okay needless to say I will NOT go to Walmart again for anything on Black Friday.  The lines had already formed for the goodies and there was no way the 25 they had were going to last when I got up to the front of the line.  So it was a waste, however they were selling stuff at 10.  My sister and I were not expecting to get any games for the wii or ds since there was a line and a fight ensued once they let the ribbon down.  Yikes!  I did pick up a few board games for the little one…he loves to play.

Target =\=
After we left walmart in record time, we headed on over to Target which was more civilized.  We waited in a line and my sister was falling asleep.  I was making the game plan, where everything was, who was grabbing what, with a cart and without.    Thank goodness for smartphones!  iPhone never lets me down!  I downloaded the map and was able to tell sis where to go and she was going to take the cart.  I ran through the clothes to get to the video games while she went and got the scooters and a tv.  I grabbed so much stuff and was able to knock a lot off the list.  I really was looking at a new camera for myself but I had to remind myself that it’s the giving season and the camera can wait.  =) It was a mad house but at least people weren’t fighting.  I helped a few people while I was standing near the video games looking for DSi bundle/case/charger/stylus.  Poor seniors/grandparents trying to figure out Pokémon games, they would have been there a long time trying to find what they wanted.  Overall, I think we did a great job and We snagged a soda on the way out and laughed the whole way home.

I didn’t get out on Friday, I wanted a B&BW VIP bag but I was just too tired to go and I’m sure they are sold out.  I will check this week when I get paid.  I have some coupons that need to be used and Christmas gifts I need to pick up.  Perhaps some small lotions for more YouTube giveaways.  I did, however, order 5 candles online: 3 Marshmallow Peppermint, 1 Fireside, and 1 Fresh Balsam.  I don’t know if they will have another 2 for $20 before the holidays so I thought I would get a few more.  If they do, it won’t be a bad thing by any means.

I am going to be on a Yankee Candle ban for right now.  I need to buy some gifts and save up for Semi annual Sales =). 

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
