Fall Candle Haul From Bath & Body Works!

Hey everyone!

Yes, I went back to Bath & Body Works and went shopping for candles! I know, I just got done buying all those cute mini mason jars ones, but I couldn't resit these scents! Plus, they had a sale going on, so it's justified right?

~Leaves - Celebrate the brilliant colors of autumn with a rich blend of golden nectar, red apple and spiced berries. This is one of my absolute must have candles for the fall season. It's crisp, fruity, and delicious!

~Pumpkin Cupcake - Satisfy your sweet tooth with the scent of a freshly baked pumpkin cupcake smothered in rich buttercream frosting. I love to burn this candle during the month of October, because what says Halloween better than pumpkin?

~Farmstand Apple - An orchard-fresh mix of McIntosh apples, pear blossom and oak inspired by a day spent picking apples. This candle is getting used on September 1st, because I am totally ready for fall, and that is as long as I can wait!

What do you think of my candle selection? More hauls coming soon!

Introducing Royal Revolution by Katy Perry‏

Hey everyone!

I’d love to introduce you to the newest fragrance from global superstar Katy Perry – her newest scent called Royal Revolution.

This fragrance is as beautiful as it is bold, and as royal as it is rebellious. Recently, I was lucky enough to get a chance to be sent this perfume to try out. I love it so far! Just keep in mind, it is a more floral perfume, which for me works out great, because it has a longer staying power than others. As always, Katy Perry has unique perfume bottle shapes, and I love how this one looks when the light hits it on my perfume tray.

"In some ways wearing fragrance is like putting on an invisible suit of luxurious armor. I want Royal Revolution to inspire women to make their own rules and embrace the idea that beauty and inner confidence can come together to become your secret weapon.” - Katy Perry

Royal Revolution ($49, 1.7 oz.) is a tempting and irresistible floral fragrance with tantalizing top notes of pink freesia kissed by the nectar of ruby-red pomegranate captivate the senses. Middle notes of sandalwood balanced with sheer orange flower and velvety jasmine petals create a soft, delicate floral heart guarded by the Mystical Blackthorn. Sexy musk and soft vanilla orchid linger on the skin, ensuring an unrivaled and unforgettable dry-down.

This Killer Queen is destined to lead a Royal Revolution. The Scent of Victory!

Back to School Must Haves with Korres!

Hey everyone!

Whether you love it or hate it, it's back to school time once again! This year, I am actually happy to see it roll around, since I have finally graduated with my last degree! At least for a while.

As we all know, back to school season slowly means that fall is coming (yay!!). So, we need to remember to keep our skin in tip top shape for all those cute guys we see. Here are a few of my new must haves from Korres that will have your skin feeling soft and looking good.

~Korres Shower Gel in Bergamot Pear - This shower gel will have your skin feeling refreshed and clean every morning. Plus, the scent smells incredible! Very fall inspired if you ask me.

~Korres Body Butter in Fig - Another must have for smooth skin. This body butter is very moisturizing on the skin, and never leaves behind a heavy residue. Perfect to use right before school.

~Korres Pomegranate Deep Cleansing Scrub - Now, with all the back to school stress in your lives, I know that your skin can get a little crazy. Mine always does! So this scrub helps to minimize the breakouts by keeping the dead skin off!

Hey everyone!

I had a coupon and a gift card to Bath & Body Works. So, you know what that means... Haul Time! And, to add an even bigger bonus onto everything, my store had the new mini mason jar candles in! Aren't they adorable?!

~Travel Size Body Spray in Lemon Pomegranate Cream - This smells sooo good, and I'm tempted to get the full size version!

~Banana Nutmeg Bread Pudding  - This candle burned great, and had a soft nutmeg scent. I didn't get too much banana from it.

~Wasabi Apple - I really like this candle, because the scent is a good mixture of spicy sweet!

~Blackberry Bramble Tea - I think this might be my favorite out the this scent range! It has a sweet and spicy scent with a hint of tea! Very fall!

~Cayenne Caramel - Another fun scent, this one is more of a sweet scent, I don't really pick up on the cayenne at all (thank goodness!)

~Bourbon Butterscotch - This is one of the strongest scents out of the collection with butterscotch!

~Vanilla Chai - Another favorite of mine, this is a delicious, soft scent that would be great to use in a bathroom with having guests over.
