So on Monday I finally jet off for a few weeks of Floridian sunshine and truth be told, I couldn't be more excited. The last few weeks have been rather hectic and I could do with the break (bust out your tiny Violins for me). As well as resting I do plan on doing a little shopping - it would be rude not to, right? One store I forever look forward to perusing is Bath and Body Works - if I am ever lucky enough to live in the US for a prolonged period you can bet every soap, candle and body product will be from Bath and Body Works, to say I am obsessed is an understatement. With that in mind let me share what I plan on purchasing or at least trying in store once I land...
1, Candles - The Bath and Body Works staple, I'm not going to purchase as many as I did last year as I am going to NYC twice in the next 12 months. I'm also going to limit myself to one large three wick candle as they take up so much space in my case. I plan on seeking out my favourite scent ever - Marshmallow Fireside, grabbing a few pumpkin scents and hopefully also a Christmas candle or two. I may not be the best host but I can guarantee you that my home always smells incredible ha!
2, Hand Santiziers - Since I was last in US Bath and Body Works have re-worked the design of their hand gels and launched new, rounder bottles. I am told they are a lot easier to slip into a pocket? I like to really stock up on Bath and Body Works Hand Gels as they are cheap, beautifully scented and are by far superior to anything I have found in the likes of Boots.
3, Hand Soap - Boring I know but where else in the world can you find various Pumpkin and Autumn like fragrances for something as mundane as hand soap? I like to purchase a few Autumn ready scents and a couple more festive scents for the run up to Christmas, don't let it be said that I don't love a good theme.
4, Wall Flowers - If enjoy home fragrance you need to try out Bath and Body Works Wall Flowers, essentially they are plug in fragrances but unlike those found in the supermarket the scents are sublime. Any Bath and Body Works candle fragrance you enjoy can be found within the Wall Flower collection. Pick up a few the next time you are in-store, I promise you won't regret it.
5, General bath and body products - Last year I purchased a double moisturiser body lotion, it was scented with apple and rum notes - the most heavenly fragrance you can imagine and just like that it has been discontinued. This year I found to scour the shelves of various bath and body works to find a body collection that is apple based and perfect for both the Autumn and Winter months. If you have any suggestions I'm all ears.
