Bath & Body Works Haul

Stop rubbing your eyes. Stop wiping your screen. Don't go off and get a new computer. You read it correctly, a haul. Ahaha, I'm sure half of you are enjoying this! I know if I was following a blogger who was doing a "No Buy Challenge" and ended up doing a haul post in the middle of it all I would laugh and laugh and then giggle. I really, for the life of me, could not resist. I tried really hard. SUPER hard. But there was no use. Bath & Body Works was having yet another 2 for $20 3-wick candle sale and this time I had a coupon for 20% off the entire purchase and my eye began to twitch. Even better was that the candles were basically each $10! I got my ever beloved Cinnamon Sugared Donut candle that I reviewed/raved about right over here. The next one I got was Pumpkin Caramel Latte. I bought it for my blogging buddy Melissa (who blogs on Melissa Knows Best, brilliant blog you guys should check her out! She's absolutely lovely :) ) and I knew that I had to have my greedy little mits on it soon. It's so sweet and caramel-y. It also helped that I had my first Pumpkin Spiced Latte from Starbucks and I could almost taste it through the candle! The last candle I bought is the least exciting but still exciting in a way. Eucalyptus Spearmint Stress Relieving candle. I got this candle because I had the little wall flower plug-in in this scent and it really did help to sort of clear my head as I had it wafting through my house during final exams (yikes!) The last three things I got were two Pocketbac's; one in Warm Apple Cider and the other in Candy Corn (a present for my sister as she is obsessed with Pocketbac's and Candy Corn) Good grief, does the Warm Apple Cider actually smell like WARM. APPLE. CIDER. I can't stop using it! I'll need another to keep me through the winter, haha! Last was this a-freakin-supercalifragilasticly-dorable Pocketbac holder. Stop. I can't take it's cute squirliness. It just screams autumn! Take a minute. Just stare at it and try not to fall in love.

I'm quite pleased with myself even though I've broken a big rule on my No Buy Challenge which was ultimately not to buy anything for 100 days. But c'mon, would you have been able to resist a sale like this and then 20% the entire purchase? Hmmm, perhaps you all have stronger will power than me!

What are some of your favorite fall scents? Have you picked up any Bath & Body Works candles? Let me know!

    1. They don't, unfortunately ): Trust me, you sort of don't want them to because the shipping would just be catastrophic! Yankee Candles are just as delicious though :)

  5. Jessicaaaa! Bad girl, but very good :D I love hauls more than most other things. Yay, it's me in the post :) I almost feel like I'm to blame in your purchase of the Pumpkin Caramel Latte candle, isn't it absolutely amazing though? I actually want to eat it! I've started to notice all the YouTubers are mentioning it in their videos now as well as their favourite candle, and also B&BW's Sweet Cinammon Pumpkin products, which are also delish. We're actually getting the Pumpkin Spice lattes in Starbucks this year too! I'm super excited for that :) x
