Guess who went to Bath & Body Works recently, saw their 75% off sale, and went a little crazy?! Yours truly. B&BW is one of about five or six stores that completely brings out my inner hoarding fiend. But anyhow, our upcoming move and the presently tight budget meant I had to strap in said fiend somewhat, and pick and choose stuff that were absolute treats and a bargain! This was actually last weekend, when the husband and I visited a wonderful, local chocolaterie (I have an entire post coming up on that very soon!) and just decided to spend the rest of the day enjoying the sunshine and exploring the nearby Dadeland area. Of course, the sunshine got a bit much around late afternoon and we had to rush into the mall - which, might I add, is a very lovely one - and so I met my nemesis, B&BW. Oh, well. My house smells lovely all the time now! You win some, you lose some.
This is my 6-month to annual supply of mini anti-bacterial, which I always carry one of in my purse. These are so darn adorable, and an absolute bargain at $1 per piece! I particularly love B&BW's Aromatherapy range, so it was a joy finding the 'Eucalyptus & Spearmint' scent in the hand-bacs. You bet I grabbed two of them!
Finally, I was in need of a light body lotion that's perfect for the daytime during the hot summer months. I'm completely a body butter person, and always have a tub or two in my stash, but for the hotter months, the last thing I want is to rub in a thick cream onto my hands and legs and then wait half an hour to wear my jeans/clothes. I've used the 'Eucalyptus & Spearmint' Body Lotion before, and it was beautifully aromatic and light in texture. So, I thought I'd give a different scent a go, and the 'Lemon Zest' was just so fresh and zingy, and pretty much summer in a bottle! I've been using this every single day since I got it, and it adds the perfect level of moisturization. Plus, it was at 50% off, so I got this pretty large bottle for $6.50. Tell me that's not a bargain!
So, total amount spent on this haul was just over $30 and I love everything. Just the perfect amount for me to use up in the next three weeks, before the big move (yes, I will be mentioning it in every blog post).
Hope you guys enjoyed this quick little post! What are some of your favorite summer scents/body products? Do you have any Bath & Body Works favorites? Let me know!
