Bath & Body Works | Spring Garden Totes: Blue or Pink | My purchases

April 26, 2016 I was in a Bath and Body Works store today picking up some more Smart Soap refills before they too disappear off of the shelf when my UPS app dinged that my two orders had just arrived.  Since there isn't even a hint of a TOTE in this store {put it out to drive future sales, geesh} I was glad I purchased my two totes online last...
