Bath & Body Works | Halloween Candles Found!

Oh, what Fun!

The New Bath and Body Works Halloween Candle Collection is starting to make its way into back rooms and of course social media this week. These quirky labels on fan-favorite scents put a smile on my face when I saw them yesterday and today.

Even though it is only July and Halloween is months away, I love knowing what fun to expect when these new Halloween things launch. 

My thanks to those who shared their finds with me so I may always keep you in the know.

Bath & Body Works | Fall Candle Preview

There are new Fall Candles hitting Bath and Body Works backrooms this week and here is a first look at what is being seen.

When these will come out seems to vary from store to store. 

I would think we will see them when the floor set happens during the first week of July.  But I  am hearing some stores are putting them out because their Semi-Annual Sale stock is very low, which is why the walls were set with new July merchandise this week.  Either way, the images are making their way across social media, so it's time to make a list! 

Oh, and I don't think these are considered "Test Candles " because they are coming to non-test stores now.​

Bath & Body Works | I'm in a Holiday state of mind...

The yard is alive with green grass and the scent of flowers, birds, and bees... The sky is the bluest I have seen in some time with a scattering of white puffy clouds here and there... The sun warms my face... And I am lost in thoughts of Bath and Body Works for Fall and Holiday. Silly, I know.  But this happens all of the time.  I think ...
