Summer Days.

Happy Memorial Weekend Y’all!

I hope you all are having a wonderful, holiday weekend! I started the weekend off with a little bit of work (cause that’s retail life), and my grandpa and great uncle are visiting from North Dakota! Everyone has just been hanging out at home, enjoying the really warm weather that mother nature has blessed us with! I am thoroughly enjoying it, and I definitely do not want to go back to work tomorrow. 

I feel like Memorial Weekend is the official ‘unofficial’ kickoff to the summer season! Since we weren’t camping because of our family being here, we did have a really nice bonfire last night!

First official bonfire of the summer!

I also have been getting back into the swing of going for a walk every night! My mom usually comes with me, and once in a while my little brother Dylan tags along. I haven’t done much shopping lately due to bills, but I am going to get the Endless Weekend trio from BBW! That will probably be the only thing that I buy until the SAS– which I am STOKED for! 

Bailey update–She is adjusting really well in our home! She is still in the stage where she thinks that we’re going to leave her, so she is constantly by your side. If you leave the room, she is right there with you. When we take her back to the vet to get fixed, I know she’s going to freak out, but when we pick her up afterwards I know she’ll be very happy to see us! 🙂 

I really want to bake and cook more since I am living at home. I want to start eating a lot healthier, and find ways to make recipes that may not be so healthy, into more healthy options! Pinterest has a lot of great ideas out there to get started! 

For my OOTD today, I decided to do some pattern mixing! It was my first time so I didn’t do anything crazy. I did google if cheetah & camo mixed well together. (I know, how sad.) The top is from Victoria’s Secret PINK, and the shorts are from Old Navy! I paired the outfit with some metallic gold strappy sandals from Madden Girl. My nails are ‘Alpine Snow’ by OPI, which I am currently OBSESSED!Image

 

I hope y’all are having a wonderful weekend, and i’ll catch up soon!

 

Where Have I Been?!?!

Holy cow it has been a REALLY long time since I’ve posted on here. As I said in my last post, I started school, which means that I got busy. Life got in the way, and I kind of just *forgot* about my blog. Shame on me! *insert slap on hand here* 

Well now i’m back, and I’m going to be posting more regularly! 🙂 I am on summer break and just going to be working, so I can dedicate my time to this blog and my YouTube channel! If you haven’t subscribed already, the link is: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFdY3gWO4a7_nyRqf4iBNyw (shameless plug; I know)

So what else has been going on? Let me catch you up! The whole gym and eating healthy thing that I talked about in my last post — yeah that kind of went to the wayside after spring break. Tanner and I both came down with horrible colds, and decided to take a break for a while. That eventually led to us just not going anymore. BUT it is now summer time, which means more free time — which means I can start running every day again! I’m thinking about signing up for AdvoCare, since I’ve been watching Marissa Lace on YouTube and following her on Instagram & Twitter, I contacted her about it, and it seems very appealing, especially for my lifestyle! 🙂

I want to take this blog to another level! I want to do regular postings like I was, plus more! I have been teaching myself to cook (because I’ve faced it, my mother is not going to teach me) — so I want to post some recipes on here! Also, I want to do more beauty related posts as well! I have really been growing my makeup collection, and I want to improve my skills and make quality videos/blog posts! I also signed up for IPSY, and my first glam bag should be arriving this week! 🙂 I’m so excited!

I also got a new puppy named Bailey! She’s not exactly a puppy, but to us, she is. She is a 5-year-old white lab, that my mom found in Minnesota! We are currently fostering her at the moment, but we have decided that we are going to keep her! She was found as a stray, and we believe that she had recently been pregnant. She has a lot of skin hanging from her belly, and you can see that she is still recovering. We think that someone may have stolen(?) or just kept her puppies and then dumped her on the road. Which is so upsetting! So now she is in our home, and she is comfortable and happy! My other two dogs are getting used to her, but our little dachsund Emma, is still really territorial around her. Cuddles my cat, just plain doesn’t like any dogs, so he hides in the basement. We also had to put down our other cat Oreo a couple months back, due to failing kidneys. Bailey just became a permanent member of our family, and I couldn’t be more excited! 🙂

Anywho, not much else has been going on, but you guys will definitely be seeing/hearing more from me soon! 🙂

Target Haulage! :)

Hey guys!

First off, Happy November! This year has flown by freaky fast! It’s almost the end of the year, and for me, that means my favorite time of the year is here! I absolutely love everything about Thanksgiving and Christmas, and literally would leave my house decorated for it all year if I could! 

Also I would like to address, I know the title of this blog is Bath and Body Works Obsessed…but I have yet to do any posts about BBW themselves! I just haven’t really had time or money to buy or look at things from BBW! I am hoping around Black Friday or even before I can pick up some candles or soaps and accessories! 

But let’s get on with this haul! I am thinking about making a short video for my YT channel as well but that is a work in progress! 

So I ran out to Target after watching a few people’s hauls on YouTube because there are so AMAZING products out there that are limited edition for the holidays! I am a total sucker for anything related to Christmas, so naturally I bought a lot of things that I did not need. 

Image

 

So as you can see…100% of this stuff I did not need to buy! But I at least was planning on buying the Glade air freshener because as you guys know from my last few posts, I had been looking to complete the collection of the room fresheners! Quick update on that, I have now found all of the scents except for the Frosted Gingerbread. I have gone to my Dollar General several times and there has not been any restock on their Glade section. I asked the SA and she just looked at me dumbfounded like she had no idea what I was talking about. So I am thinking unless I can find another DG near my area that I probably will be missing out on the gingerbread air freshener 😦

So the first item I have to show you are the new *limited edition* Lays Wavy Potato Chips dipped in Milk Chocolate! Chocolate covered potato chips have been a cult favorite in my family for many years, but when I saw that these were coming out I thought I may as well try them! Well, honestly there is nothing super special about them compared to homemade ones that I can make in my own kitchen. However they are still good! Just not worth the $3.49 that I paid for them! 

Image

The next items I have are m&ms! These are two of the limited edition holiday flavors, and I also believe there is a gingerbread one that is available only at Walmart. I love anything peppermint, and limited edition so I had to pick up a bag of each! Who knows, I may end up going back for a few more! I still have three unopened bags of pumpkin spice m&ms from the fall season because I love them so much! 

Image

The next things I picked up were these three lotions by Spa Perfect! I found these out because I watched Brandon’s haul on YouTube and he was talking about these! They were in the dollar section which is AMAZING! The first one that I am going to review quickly is the Visions of Sugar Plums (pink packaging). This one is very very subtle, almost to a point where I can’t smell anything at all! But I am sick at the moment, so once everything clears up I will be re-smelling these again! The next one is Twisted Peppermint (red packaging), and this one smells almost identical to the BBW version, but with a lesser note of vanilla. These are kind of cross between a lotion and a body cream to me. They aren’t super thick but they aren’t super thin either, so they will moisturize your hands well! And for $1 you can’t complain! 🙂 The last one is Vanilla Sugar Cookie (blue packaging). This one is a very bakery type scent. I smell more sugary sweet notes than I do vanilla. So this is definitely different than something like Vanilla Bean Noel from BBW. Overall I am actually very impressed with these, for them being only $1, but I will be sticking to my BBW TMC’s for moisturzing the entire body.

The last thing I have to talk about, is the item i’m most excited about! I have gone to Target about 4 times since the holiday collection for Glade was announced, because Walmart had theirs out right away, so I figured Target would be on the ball as well. Well today I FINALLY got my hands on Sweet Holiday Treats. The scent description reads “Indulge in the irresistible scent of rich cocoa, toasted nuts and creamy caramel from those special holiday treats”. This scent is AMAZING! I am seriously blown away by how good this smells. I sprayed it in my kitchen, and I can definitely smell the notes of caramel and cocoa! It smells like someone has been baking goodies all day, and it just really gives a pleasant aroma in the air. I am so happy that I kept my patience and just waited for the floor to be set so that I could get my hands on this scent! 

 

So that is everything that I picked up at Target today! There were so many other holiday related items like food and decor, just I can’t even wait until my next paycheck because I will be going HAM! And now that I moved into my own house, I can decorate however I want 🙂 

Until next time, 

XOXO Kayla

Glade Holiday 2013 Update!

Hey all! 🙂

I am back with a small update for you all! So..the collection that I reviewed in my last post is the holiday collection for this year! It has recently been released on the Glade website and in retailers nationwide! There are the main scents which are the ones I reviewed previously Those are..Sparkling Spruce, Frosted Berry Kiss, Apple Cinnamon Cider, and Pure Vanilla Bliss. There are also three scents that are limited to select retailers only! The first one is Merry Maple Morning which is exclusive to Walmart. This one I was able to find! The other two, which I have been unsuccessful in finding are Sweet Treats (I hope i’m getting these names right), and there is also a Gingerbread scent as well. I went to my local Target and I think they were getting ready to set the new products because even the fall scents were emptied out. I went to Kmart and they only had the four main scents. I’m not sure where else to find them! Brandon from YT found his gingerbread one at Dollar General and I went there but was unsuccessful in finding them! So if you guys find those two scents let me know where you found them! I am seriously on a HUNT! I want to review the Merry Maple Morning but I want to wait until I find the other two so that it can be a worth reading post! 

Hope you guys enjoyed this rambly, random post!

XOXO 

Kayla ❤
