You know that old saying, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Currently, the saying here would be, " When Life gives you Rain...build an ark."
Over the past few months, the weather here feels more like Mother Nature is tearing pages out of the Weather Channels Guide to Natural Disasters to see just what would happen if I did this... page.
I have lived here all of my life and while there have been a few terrible things that have happened weather-wise, things of late have me quite concerned.
On July 25th, Bath and Body Works had a FaceBook Live video that shared a few sneak peeks into some of the items we can look forward to seeing in these next few months. During that presentation, a new fragrance was revealed - Sweater Weather - and we had a first quick, albeit blurry look at the Sweater Weather Body Cream packaging. There were no scent notes shared then, which left us all speculating what this scent would end up being.
Fast forward to this week when two Instagram girls (@toribathandbody and @agirlwithstufftopost) shared their store finds of more matching that collection scents.
When will we see these scents release? If I had to guess I think this next floorset August 26th with the rest of the newly found items including a few more candle collections.When I find out more, including what forms this collection will come in, I will update this posting.
Today, Bath and Body Works launched its Halloween Collection and tonight they released this First Look email. There was one table in the store dedicated to Halloween with a few key pieces I planned on getting missing but hopefully, I will find them on my next visit. Here are the Halloween items I grabbed.
Tomorrow, August 13th, Bath
This is a compilation of products I have found on social media to make your Halloween shopping a little bit easier. Of course, selection may vary from store to store and White Barn stores but I wanted to give a general idea of what is out there.
My current list of Bath and Body Works three wick candles.
I haven't taken inventory of the single wicks, four ounce and minis yet, but I wanted to get an idea of what the three wick candle cabinet actually had in it.
While it is currently testing out now in select markets, we could possibly see this brand new fragrance out in all stores by August 27th.
Thank Goodness It's Fall!
Crisp sun-shiny days, apple orchards open across the land. Leaves all bright and everything's all right because it's that time of year when all of your favorite ingredients are here!
Sugared Cranberry Cider: wild cranberries, juicy mulberries, plum blossoms, velvet musk
Bath and Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Body Care will be in stores August 27th. When it launches I will get the complete list of forms available posted.
With Halloween still a few months away, everyone is still focused on and enjoying their summer...but if you love Bath and Body Works Holiday themed items, now is the time to pay attention to what is starting to come into the stores.
While I have not heard when the Halloween items will officially begin hitting the stores on a display to purchase, and some stores have begun putting out the smaller items like the hand sanitizers for sale.
I suspect we should see everything launched on August 27th after the floor set on the 26th. I am going to make a posting of what I know is coming so far but I had to get this " Dead and Breakfast " Halloween Haunted House Candle Luminary photo posted for those die-hard collectors to see. But get your wallet ready for a $98.50 price tag! I know I know you think that is way too much - I do too - but every year they sell out!
There was a time I collected them, the ceramic houses, but that was way back when they first came out and were priced at $25.00. When they started going over the $50 price point I made the decision to stop collecting them and started to sell off my ( never displayed) houses. Part of the reason I was getting rid of them, I never put them out!
Then they launched a metal version haunted house a few years ago and I grabbed a few of those because they seemed easier to display than the ceramic counterpart. Less of a chance for breakage while still offering the charm. I have not seen a metal Haunted House as of yet.
I will get the Halloween items
Tomorrow, July 25th at Noon on QVC, HomeWorx by Harry Slatkin new Candle Collection will be offered. Details on these beautiful hobnail glass candle jars below.
