Summer Essentials on SALE at Bath and Body Works!

bbw summer


Bath and Body Works had many amazing deals happening today, including the $12.50 candle sale, the $7 sale on the new summer line, and the summer tote bags ($25 when you spend $30).

I was so excited to see that the new summer scents went on sale, especially since they included things like the foaming body oils, shower jellies, and shapeable soap! I love all of the fun new forms that they have been putting out for this line, and the packaging is too cute! The new line has a few different scents, but poolside pop is my absolute favorite. The key notes are: Sparkling Lime, Drenched Kiwi, Crushed Cucumber, Pink Hibiscus, and Creamy Woods. It is sweet and fruity- a perfect summer fragrance.

The $7 sale was amazing, especially when you think about how many items normally cost $16.50. Here are my favorites from the sale (everything I picked out was in the scent poolside pop, but there are many other great scents to choose from!):

  1. The poolside pop foaming body oil: My favorite product from the new line is the foaming body oil. I think it might be my favorite thing that the store has ever sold. It makes my skin GLOW and feel so soft and moisturized. I also love the fact that it foams first, so it is not drippy and messy like most body oils. I cannot stress enough how much I love this body oil. It just looks so beautiful, especially when layered with the poolside pop diamond shimmer mist. You have to try it, it is a game-changer for sure.
  2. The diamond shimmer mist: this is one of the prettiest shimmer mists I have ever used! It gives your skin the most gorgeous glow on days where you want to sparkle!
  3. The lotion and body cream: I am grouping these together because there is nothing extra special about them except for how cute the packaging is and how amazing they smell!
  4. The shower jelly: I absolutely love the shower jellies! They are super fun to use and a little goes a long way.
  5. Aqua Cool Aloe Lotion: for those of you who are extremely sunburn prone (like me), this will be your best friend this summer. It keeps your skin soft while also nourishing and soothing it, and it smells soooo much better than aloe vera. It feels even better if you store it in the fridge! There are so many great scents to choose from, including Japanese Cherry Blossom, Pretty As A Peach, and A Thousand Wishes.
  6. The Smoothie Scrub: This scrub makes my skin feel so smooth, plus it is infused with blueberry seeds, vitamin A, Acai, and pomegranate extracts!

I also picked up the new “Hooray!” (pink apple punch) candle. I just could not resist it at $12.50. The notes in this sweet scent are: bubbly champagne, pink lady apples, and juicy honeydew. I used my free item coupon to snag the new Ocean body wash for my boyfriend.

Finally, I picked up the cooler bag. There were two summer bags to choose from: one was a cute palm tree tote which was filled with coco-shea products and the other was a gold cooler bag filled with at the beach products. I was so excited because the bag I chose came with the body scrub, which at $16.50 practically pays for the whole bag. It also came with a bath bomb, body lotion, fine fragrance mist, and a hand cream!

I am absolutely thrilled with all of the new, fun products bath and body works has been coming up with lately! Let me know if you have any questions about any of the other products from the new summer line! I would love to hear what you are all loving currently!





Bath and Body Works- Celebration Line 2016

I recently picked up some of the body care from the new Celebration body care line at Bath and Body Works. Before even trying out anything from this line, I was instantly drawn in by the packaging. It is glamorous, glittery, girly- absolute perfection! This line is very different than anything else in my Bath and Body Works collection. First of all, the shape of the body lotions are different than the regular packaging of the lotion. I do not know if Bath and Body works is shifting towards changing the bottles again from what they are now or if this is just for the celebration line. I am in love with the shimmering packaging, it just screams CELEBRATE. I am absolutely thrilled with everything about this line: the packaging, design, and the fragrances.

I picked up a body cream and body lotion of each scent at the $3.75 sale, and I used a $10 off $30 coupon- making them $2.50 each, A STEAL!!

First, I will talk about what may be the most popular in this line- Champagne Toast. I am a huge fan of the Champagne Toast candle, so I had high hopes for the body care line. I was not disappointed! This is perfect for the holiday season and to wear year-round.  If you can only get one thing from this line, I would suggest Champagne Toast. This sweet and fruity scent will give you reason to celebrate!


” Cheers to a sparkling blend of pink champagne, golden nectarine, and sugared musk”

Top Notes: Vintage Champagne, Sparkling Tangerine

Mid Notes: Red Hibiscus, White Nectarine, Black Currant Chambord, Juicy Passionfruit

Dry Notes: Plum Wood, Sugared Musk, Vanilla Extract

The next scent I reached for was Pink Confetti. I threw this in my basket without thinking twice or even smelling it- I mean, just look at this packaging! Nothing beats pink glitter. Once I put this on my skin, I realized it smelled like another BBW lotion I love, Strawberry Bourbon and Vanilla. I absolutely loved Strawberry Bourbon, so I was happy that this scent was similar. I absolutely love this one for the pretty pink packaging and the stand-out strawberry fragrance.


“Celebrate with a fresh blend of red raspberry, juicy pear, and crystal jasmine”

Top Notes: Cassis leaves, William Pear, Pink Strawberry

Mid Notes: Apricot Nectar, Sparkling Jasmine, Peony Petals

Dry Notes: Creamy Vanilla, Marshmallow, Bourbon Woods, Crystallized Musk

Next up is Wrapped in Sugar. This is a very comforting scent, it reminds me a little of Beach Nights from the summer line. The main scents that stand out to me are marshmallow and vanilla, with a tiny hint of coconut.


“Wrap yourself in a warm blend of coconut martini, marshmallow musk, and sheer amber”

Top Notes: Sparkling Mandarin, Touch of Apple, Coconut Cosmo Martini Accord

Mid Notes: Heliotrope, Sheer Jasmine, Toasted Coconut Flakes

Dry Notes: Marshmallow Musk, Amber, Warm Woods

Finally, we have the beautiful Cocktail Dress- a beautiful floral fragrance. My first thought when I put this on was that it smells expensive! I am not usually a huge fan of floral because they are often way too strong, but I think this one is perfect. I did NOT expect to love this one when I read “crystal peonies”, but they really did an amazing job with this one. I feel like the scent got better and better the longer it was on my skin.


“Party on with a blend of sparkling mandarin, peony petals, and velvet musk” 

Top Notes: Crisp Pomegranate, Osmanthus, Sparkling Mandarin

Mid Notes: Peony Petals, Lily of the Valley, Juicy Pear

Dry Notes: Sleek Amber Wood, Skin Musk, Sheer Cedarwood

Let me know what you think of the celebrate line. What did you like/ not like? What products are you dying to try?


My Favorite PocketBacs



In case you didn’t already know- I am a Bath and Body Works fanatic! Lotions, candles,body wash- they are like Pokemon to me- I want to “catch them all”! jasmine

(probably your face right now at my horrible jokes)

ANYWAY, my obsession lately has been PocketBacs. As a college student, I am constantly on the go and I like how easy it is to pull these out whenever and wherever I need them. My collection has gotten pretty big, but of course I still want more. The convenient packaging, the adorable names and labels, and of course, the irresistible scents keep me constantly searching for new ones.

Today I wanted to share with you what I consider to be MUST HAVES! These are my absolute favorites that I have found so far at BBW, but I will make sure to post another favorites post as new ones come out! I have a ton of favorites, but I narrowed it down to 10 current faves!

   1. Girls Just Want To Have Sun- I am in love with the packaging and title of this sweet summer scent!


Just Peachy PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 2. Just Peachy- This blend of peaches, honeysuckle and blood orange is addicting! The scent is also strong, but not too strong! It smells like you just sprayed a spritz of your body spray instead of putting on hand sanitizer.


 3. Boardwalk Vanilla Cone- If you only grab one thing from this list, make it Boardwalk Vanilla Cone. I loved the scent in store, but when I took it home- it became an instant favorite. It really smells like a vanilla ice cream cone!


4.Watermelon Lemonade- This is one of my favorite scents from BBW. I love the candle, the body care, the hand soap- and the pocketbac version is just as sweet!


Dreamer - Berry Wish PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works5. Dreamer- It’s a unicorn- need I say more? The packaging on this is ADORABLE and it smells like sweet berries and vanilla.



Lemon Buttercream PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 6. Lemon Buttercream- I am in love with a discontinued BBW scent, lemon vanilla. This so far is the closest BBW has come to matching that scent! It smells like sweet lemon cake to me!

Liquid Sunshine PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 7. Liquid Sunshine- My first thought when I smelled this was that it literally smells like liquid sunshine. The lemon / floral combo makes me think of happy, summer days.

Sweet Pea PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 8. Sweet Pea- Sweet Pea was the first lotion I ever got at BBW and I will always remember how much my mom hated it haha! Sweet Pea has recently been given a makeover and I think the new packaging is so cute. Described as a blend of ” sweet pea petals, sheer freesia, and luscious raspberry”, this girly scent is still one of my favorites!


A Thousand Wishes PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 9. A Thousand Wishes- This is one of BBW’s most popular and well known scents. The packaging is super cute and I love that the sanitizer has a hint of glitter in it. Don’t worry, you won’t look like a disco ball! The smell is amazing year round.


Pretty in Pink PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 10. Pretty In Pink- Of course I grabbed two of these.. Pink is my favorite color so I love the look of this pretty pocketbac. The smell is absolutely breathtaking! It smells as good as a cupcake, without the calories.


Well that is all for now. Again, it was EXTREMELY hard for me to narrow this down so I would love to post more favorites lists in the future!

What are your must have pocketbacs?
