Mini Haul: Candles & Beauty Bits
Yesterday on a whim, I decided to hit up my local mall while I ran some errands after my oh-so enjoyable (sarcasm) doctor's appointment. Everyone who goes to the doctor deserves some retail therapy, right? I recently emptied some of my favourite everyday beauty products that needed replacing, and decided to pick up some boring home organization things and yummy candles.
I love candles, the problem I've been having lately, is finding scents that I actually like. I don't know if it's my preggo nose that is getting in the way, but it seems like I don't like the way anything smells anymore! I've been wanting to buy candles for our new place but wasn't digging the flowery or fruity scents out there, or I found that the scents I had enjoyed didn't last which was disappointing. So! I hit up Bath and Body Works for their ever coveted candles! I was initially looking for the 3-wick candles that they are famous for, but I couldn't fathom spending $40 on two candles (which was their deal apparently). I found the Paris French Daydream candle, which I LOVE the fresh scent of (I hear it's being discontinued) for a bargain at $11.50!
Sundress single-wick candles that were also on sale for $6 and they smell divine! I can't wait to light these babies up! Once I've given them a go, i'll let you know how I like them. Maybe in a favourites post? If you have a Bath and Body Works near you go check it out as they are having their semi-annual sale. I regret not picking up the shower gels and hand soaps. I might need to make another trip out!
this post, was the Rimmel Extra Wow Lash Mascara, and as I was looking to repurchase this one, I came across the Rimmel Extra 3D Lash Mascara and decided to give it a shot.
Bio Oil, and as I have just emptied my last bottle, a replacement was in order! Bio Oil is such a versatile product that can be used for many different skincare dilemmas. Honestly, I use this stuff for everything! Stretch marks, scars, irritated skin - you name it, i've used it! I also find that you don't need to use too much product at once, so although it's a little pricey for the size, it's well worth it!
NYC Show Time Kohl Kajal a shot because it's exactly what i'm looking for. I wanted something that WOULDN'T give me that "perfect" eyeliner look but instead, something I could apply easily and smudge to create a smoky look with. I wore it for a few hours yesterday, and found that it applies easily which I love so far.
Bath and Body Works Moonlight Path Fine Fragrance Mist and since I am due for a replacement, I had being eyeing the Calgon line of body mists at my local drugstore and after much deliberation, I picked the Calgon Turquoise Seas Body Mist. I've been using Calgon body mists for years and years now, and it actually stemmed from my Mum who uses them religiously. So for me it was a no-brainer when it came to my next body spray purchase that Calgon was on the top of my list. I'm trying to think of the best way to describe the scent as I write this, but it reminds me of fresh, clean laundry. Hopefully, I can give you a better description as I have had some more use!
