Glade Holiday 2014 Collection!

What, I’m back?! YES! I am so sorry I’ve been gone, life has been getting crazy lately and down time is hard to come by!

BUT I am back with a short posting today, about the new holiday home fragrance collection from Glade! I had a posting for the 2013 collection last year, and I am even more excited for this years collection! There are a total of 8 fragrances in this collection, and they all sound DIVINE! I cannot wait to get my hands on these!

sparkling spruce Sparkling Spruce: Feel the snow crunch under your boots as you join your friends for the tree lighting in the town square. Hints of frosty pine and evergreen fragrance fill the air, along with a wonderful sense of anticipation. Notes: green pine needle, spruce, eucalyptus, lavender, cedar leaf, fir balsam, cypress, cedar, and patchouli. Available in: solid air freshener, premium room spray, wax melts, automatic spray, oil warmer plug-in refills, jar candle. I typically don’t go for these spruce type scents, however I will give this one a try!

merry citrus morningMerry Citrus Morning: The annual holiday pageant offers one of the season’s many highlights. Gather with friends and family to sing songs of good cheer and share the most cherished music of the season. Notes: mandarin, aldehyde snowflakes, candy apple, red clove, musk, fruits, golden amber, frankincense, and myrrh. Available in: premium room spray, wax melts, automatic spray, oil warmer plug-in refills, jar candle. I usually love the citrus type scents, and it will be interesting to see what kind of seasonal twist glade puts on this fragrance!

apple cinnamon cheerApple Cinnamon Cheer: Fill your cup with holiday cheer! The scent of cinnamon-kissed hot apple cider warms you, body and soul, as you take an exhilarating sled ride across new-fallen snow. Notes: apple cider, mixed fruits, berries, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, cream, woods. Available in: solid air freshener, premium room spray, wax melts, automatic spray, oil warmer plug-in refills, jar candle. I believe last year they also had an apple cinnamon scent, but this one sounds delicious!

frosted cookie partyFrosted Cookie Party: Delightfully decorated treats are the order of the day at the yearly cookie exchange. The air is rich with wholesome baked aromas, along with laughter and cheerful conversations with your closest friends. Notes: vanilla bean, whipped icing, toasted marshmallow, layered cake, and spice. Available in: premium room spray, wax melts, automatic spray, oil warmer plug-in refills, jar candle. This is one of the ones I am most excited about. I love any scents that are sweet and foodie, so this is right up my alley! I have a feeling that I will want to stock up on this one!

hot cocoa mintHot Cocoa Mint: A spin around the local ice rink becomes an afternoon of frosty family fun. And the perfect way to finish it off? Warm up to the scent of rich, hot cocoa with a delightful hint of mint. Notes: peppermint, crisp ozone, spearmint, cocoa, pine, marshmallow, dark chocolate, coconut, sugar, and candy cane. Available in: premium room spray, wax melts, oil warmer plug-in refills, jar candle. This is another one that I am really really excited about! I have seen the small display at work (I work at WalMart) but haven’t walked over to smell it because I know I’m going to LOVE it!

under the mistletoeUnder The Mistletoe: One of the sweetest sensations of the season—snuggling up closely with your sweetheart. Steal a kiss under the mistletoe, as the scent of fresh berries treats you to an unforgettable holiday memory. Notes: sugared strawberries, cherry, pink grapefruit, gooseberry, cranberry, raspberry, fir balsam, cedarwood, and garland greens. Available in: premium room spray, wax melts, oil warmer plug-in refills, jar candle. This one sounds like it is either going to be light or sickly sweet. I will give it a try though!

gingerbread jingleGingerbread Jingle: If there’s ever a time to indulge, it’s at the holiday bake sale. Everyone’s brought wonderful recipes of baked family favorites, and the sweet scent of gingerbread greets you at every turn. Notes: candied ginger, nutmeg, cardamon, cinnamon, marzipan, hazelnut, brown sugar, gingerbread, and warm molasses. Available in: jar candle. I have a feeling this one will be hard to find, being that it only comes in the form of a candle. This is too bad because this one sounds divine! Hopefully I can get my hands on it!

mocha chestnutsMocha Chestnuts: The sights and sounds of the holiday market treat your senses to pure holiday magic. Take a stroll through snow-blanketed booths filled with handcrafted toys and aromas of fresh roasted chestnuts and chocolate creations. Notes: mocha, cardamom, buttermilk, caramel toffee, almond, nutmeg, gingerbread, powdered sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and bread pudding. Available in: premium room spray, wax melts, oil warmer plug-in refills, jar candle. This one sounds awesome, and I love the packaging! I hope I can find this one, because according to a few reviews, it is hard to find.

I remember last year the scents were released early to dollar general, so I’m hoping to take a trip there this coming weekend to find them! I can’t remember off the top of my head which ones are at WalMart, as I picture the display in my head I am drawing a blank. But I am hoping to pick up something in each of these fragrances so that I can do a review for you! I hope you guys enjoyed this posting, and look forward to more postings from me! 🙂

XOXO, Kayla

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!
