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!

 

Bath and Body Works Haul!

Hey everyone! 🙂 Today I am going to share a small BBW haul for you 🙂 I went shopping the other day and they were having buy 3 get 3 free on all of their body care..and since the holiday traditions are my absolutely favorite scents so I decided to stock up on a few things! 🙂

I stocked up on some body wash and since I didn’t wanna buy all body wash, I went ahead and bought two of the triple moisture body creams! I already have way too many of the basic scents so I went ahead and bought one of each of the new winter scents!

First of all..I love the packaging on these! It’s like a mix between wrapping paper design and Christmas sweater design! Cranberry Twinkle’s scent description reads, “A playful blend of holiday cranberry, snowy freesia and pomegranate, layered with creamy sandalwood and iced winter violets.” I really like this scent although it reminds me a lot of the pink sugarplum from last year. But I liked that scent regardless so i’m okay with that! Now, as many of you probably know from reading other blogs or perhaps you’ve discovered this for yourself, Merry Marshmallow Kiss is totally deceiving by just looking at the name. I really don’t smell any vanilla, mostly just fruity scents like pears. The scent description for this one is, “A joyful blend of fluffy marshmallow, gilded pear and winter jasmine, whipped with white amber and sparkling bergamot.” I definitely enjoy these two but I think BBW needs to be more creative with the scents they come out otherwise they’re going to start losing some of their customers.

I hadn’t stocked up on any holiday shower gel’s and since I only had one pink sugarplum left over I decided to go ahead and pick up a few bottles to get me through the rest of the holiday season! I picked up winter candy apple which is by far my favorite holiday traditions scent. The scent description for this reads, “Winter Candy Apple is a cheerful blend of ruby red apple, winter rose petals and candied orange, drizzled with crisp maple and cinnamon.” I have loved this scent since it came out. I have many of the TMC’s and a small travel size of the body spray. I could smell this all day long! The other long-time loved scent I picked up was Vanilla Bean Noel. This was my favorite scent before winter candy apple came out, and I wish my house could smell like this all day long! This is a vanilla and bakery scent and it is amazing! The scent description for Vanilla Bean Noel reads, “A merry blend of snow white vanilla, warm caramel and whipped cream, sprinkled with holiday sugar cookies and kissed with soft musk.” I also have the body creams and mist of this scent. This is one of those scents I will use probably until about March or April when it’s spring time! The other two scents I picked up were Cranberry Twinkle, and Merry Marshmallow Kiss. I figured I would have 2/3 of each scent’s ritual. I may go back and buy travel sized sprays of those two and then also pick up some twisted peppermint as well 🙂 However that may have to wait until the next buy 3 get 3 free. 

I hope you guys are enjoying your week! It’s rather snowy here in Wisconsin, but I am using my free time to watch Christmas movies and catch up on YouTube videos! If there are any particular posts you would like me to do, please feel free to let me know in the comment section! 🙂 Spread this page with your friends too!
