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

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 😦 

Image

 

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. 

Image

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 ❤

Glade Winter Collection

20131018_175200

Hey Guys!

Well thumbs up for my first post! WOO! I am going to be talking about the Winter Collection room sprays that I picked up from Glade. I got these at Dollar General. I am really confused though as to if they are from last year (2012) or if they are new to this year (2013). The cans say copyright 2012 so I’m wondering if they are just back stock from last year and are only available now at Dollar General. But a few other YouTubers like Brandon from BBW News also was able to pick up Gingerbread Jingle from his Dollar General and apparently there are a few scents limited to select retailers. I guess I am going to have to do some more research! I also hope that the pictures are good quality, I am using my new Samsung Galaxy S4 to take the pictures.

Let me start off with saying that the packaging for this collection is AMAZING. I am one that is all about the packaging and the outer look and design of the product I am buying. This is partially the reason why I gravitate more towards Glade products vs. Febreeze and others. I also have the glade fall 2013 limited edition collection, but that is older news so I won’t post anything on that. Let’s get into the reviews!

20131018_180248[1]

The first scent I’m going to talk about is Apple Cinnamon Cheer! The scent description says “Brrr! Wrap those snowy mittens around a mug of steaming cider, and let the fragrance of red apples and spice warm you from head to toe.”

When I smell this…I can definitely smell the cinnamon! There is also a note of apple cider and these two scents are blended together so well! It reminds me of ‘Tis The Season’ from Bath and Body Works for sure! I really love this scent & cannot wait for it to be closer to the holidays so I can start using it!

20131018_180352[1]

The next scent I’m going to talk about is Pure Vanilla Joy! The scent description for this says “Nothing says holidays like a fresh-baked batch of frosted cookies. Let the uplifting scent of pure, creamy vanilla keep you in the spirit all season long.”

I really love this! It is definitely a pure vanilla scent. It is different from like a warm vanilla sugar scent which you can find at BBW, and it definitely reminds me of baked goods during the holidays!

20131018_180404[1]

Now let’s look at Sparkling Spruce! The scent description says “Gather round- it’s time! The crisp fragrance of fresh-cut pine is pure holiday magic at any age, evoking the wide-eyed wander of a thousand twinkling lights.”

This is definitely a pine scent, like when you bring home that fresh christmas tree from the farm! I’m not too fond of this one..so I may give this one away to someone. It kind of has a stale pee smell (that’s a weird description) which definitely is what is turning me off. It reminds me of Fall Hayride from the 2013 Fall Collection and that is the one that I did not pick up. Wish this would’ve been more holiday-esque but oh well!

20131018_180416[1]

The last scent I’m going to talk about is Frosted Berry Kiss! The scent description reads “Holiday magic is in the air! With ripe red berries and fresh green garlands, this festive fragrance captures the excitement of a kiss under the mistletoe.”

Okay, I love this scent! You can get the ripe berry note along with a very subtle note from the garlands. This is probably my second favorite out of the four that I purchased! This one you definitely should pick up because it is very festive! It almost makes me wish it was snowing and I was sitting by a christmas tree with hot cocoa and christmas music playing! 🙂

So all in all these are amazing products with GREAT scent throw! These were the only four that were available at my Dollar General, and perhaps there are more out there! I only paid $2.00 for the Pure Vanilla Joy, Frosted Berry Kiss, and Apple Cinnamon Cheer and then the Sparkling Spruce was $3.00 which is not a horrible deal at all! They also come in candles, automatic room spray refills, and wax cubes! I would rank them in order from favorite to least as:

-Apple Cinnamon Cheer

-Frosted Berry Kiss

-Pure Vanilla Joy

-Sparkling Spruce

As far as more scents from this collection, people are saying there are more so I’m definitely going to be on the lookout for those and I will keep you guys updated! I hope you guys enjoyed this post! See you next time!

XOXO, Kayla
