Come Along with Me: Christmas at Bath and Body Works and White Barn

Hello Everyone!

Well Christmas fever has hit me again lol. Today (technically yesterday) I wanted to take you along with me to Bath and Body Works. This trip was a little unexpected, but my mom wanted to go look for a few things.

My happy place :)

Have you tried the bath fizzies? I was thinking about getting a few to try. Any reccomendations?

I really love that Bath and Body Works started selling more body butters.

My favorite scent for the past few months, Magic in the Air.

Fine Fragrances

Is it me or some of the candles are a little stronger this year? I thought last years version of Hot Cooca and Cream was perfect, but I notice this year it smells a little stronger. I skipped this years version.

My other happy place lol :)

I love candles 

I love how White Barn has such beautiful candle holders. 

Goodies from yesterday's candle haul. My mom is so sweet. My birthday is on Christmas, but she surprised me with a few early candles and a candle holder. Thanks again mama! I love you! She picked up a few candles too. How cute are the bags this year? 

Frosted Cranberry is one of my holiday favorites.  I look forward to burning the new scents Capri Citron and Merry Mimosa. 

I love the lids on the White Barn Frosted Cranberry this year.

This candle holder is beautiful!

I get these candles every year. Frozen Lake is the only new candle I haven't tried. If you're familiar with Oceanside or Ocean Therapy, it smells similar to those candles except with eucalyptus. What happened to Merry Cookie? I look forward to that candle every year. I'm still hoping BABW will bring it back this year!

FAN MOMENT! Thanks Bath and Body Works for liking my photo on Instagram! 

I had such a nice time with my mom yesterday at Bath and Body Works. What are some of your favorite holiday scents from Bath and Body Works? Are you attending Candle Day this year?

My Favorite Liquid Lipsticks: Fall 2017 Edition

Hello Everyone!

Surprised to see a beauty related post lol? It's been a few weeks I know! Today I wanted to share my favorite liquid lipsticks for the season.

- Colourpop Frick n Frack (USL)

- Colourpop StingRAYE (UML)

- Colourpop Love Bug (UML)

- Colourpop Beeper (UML)

- Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme: Loved (12)

It's just not Fall to me without a wearing a terracotta/brown color, and these are a few of my to lipsticks.

- Colourpop Viper

- Colourpop Privacy Please

- Colourpop Bad Habit

- Colourpop More Better

I'm not sure of why Privacy Please is showing up like this lol. I guess it's due to the flash but the color is more muted than that bright shade appearing. Anyway these are few other lipsticks that I also like to wear. Last year when Colourpop released Viper I had to have it! It's so pretty!

- Colourpop Panda (USL)

- Colourpop Play Date (UML)

- Colourpop Notion

- Colourpop Avenue

- Milani Devotion (14)

Last but not least my favorite vampy lipsticks. I typically wear plums, or darker reds, but I don't go too dark with lipsticks since they tend to make me look like I'm not feeling well.

What are your favorite liquid lipsticks/lipsticks to wear during the Fall? Have a great week!

Staying Healthy During the Colder Months

Hello Everyone!

*This post contains PR Samples

Sometimes it's the inevitable that we're going to feel or get sick, but today I wanted to share a few of my tips of staying healthy during the colder months.

- Sanitize, Sanitize, Sanitize!

- Lysol Disinfectant Spray - Crisp Linen

- Lysol Disinfectant Spray To Go

- Lysol Multi-Purpose Cleaners

- Lysol Disinfecting Wipes

* Purell Fresh Hand Sanitizing Wipes - 15ct

* Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer Refreshing Gel Hand Sanitizer in Jelly  Wrap Carriers

* Purell Healthy Soap Soothing Cucumber

* Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer Refreshing Gel

* Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer NATURALS

I feel like this has turned into sanitizing post lol, but seriously keeping you and your surroundings sanitized can help prevent colds, the flu, etc.  I use the Lysol products primarily around my home, and the Purell Products are good to keep in your bag, the car etc.  I also use the some of the Purell Products around my home as well.

- Stay home and get rest

This is so important. I understand bills have to be paid and you have daily responsibilities, but going about your daily tasks is probably going to do you more harm than good. I'v learned that the hard way when I was younger. Besides if your sick with a cold etc. you're likely going to get others sick if your out and about, and possibly feel worse.

- Stay away from others who are sick

Please take caution when you're around someone who has a cold or the flu etc.

-  Eat healthy foods and drink fluids

It's true you are what you eat. The healthier you eat the better you'll feel and likely recover from not feeling well. Since I have allergy and sinus issues all year round, I'm always keeping myself hydrated with water.

Since the weather has been cooler, I've been getting a few throat aches. I try to drink hot lemon tea with honey and that usually helps.

- Take appropriate medication and see a doctor if neccessary 

I displayed Zyrtec since that's what I'm currently taking for allergies

I stress the phrase take appropriate medication because when you self diagnose yourself, you possibly could be taking the wrong over the counter medication.  Also, if you're not feeling better or feeling worse, seek medical treatment.

What tips do you use to stay healthy during the colder months?

Hello November

Hello Everyone!

In My Come Along with Me Post, I mentioned that lately I've been having Christmas decorations on my mind lol. I can't let Fall my favorite season continue without me dedicating a post.

Fall Themed Granny Crochet Blanket

I showed this in my ready for Fall post, but I just put this blanket on the recliner in the living room. I'll probably leave it up until Thanksgiving or shortly before the Christmas Tree is up.

Fall Themed Door Wreath

These flowers are from last year, but I added flowers to the wreath that were in my mirror box last Fall. The grapevine wreath is new since I used the other one to get started on the Christmas door wreath lol  I'll probably hang this on the front door in the next day or so. I think this wreath will look great for thanksgiving.

Pyrex Glass Pie Plates

I've been picking up a few more pie plates here and there to make food dishes during the colder months. These pie plates are going to come in handy during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Check your local Walmart because I noticed they had a roll back on the price for $3.97 :)

Ceramic Mugs

Well it hasn't been sweater weather the past few days unless its early in the morning or late at night lol,  but I still like this mug. I thought these mugs were so cute in Walmart and they were on sale!  

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! Have you started you menu yet? 

* The following was added to this post on Saturday, November 4th...

Better Homes & Gardens Cranberry Mandarin Splash Candle

Omgosh this candle smells so good! A perfect equal blend of cranberry and mandarin! The throw so far is moderate. I think that two of these candles in the living room would probably smell amazing!

Chicken Pot Pie 

Obviously my chicken pot pie has become a little popular so I made one for the weekend lol.

I wanted to do a full post for Halloween, but since I've been a little under the weather with allergy and sinus issues I didn't get to do much.
