Bath & Body Works | Price Increase Coming for the New Gingham Eau De Parfum

I wanted to share a bit of random information regarding the Bath and Body Works Eau de Parfum in the Gingham fragrance.  We should be seeing a price increase on this item within the next day or so.  I was told by the end of business Saturday the new marketing will hit the stores, but I have also heard that the price tags on the boxes have been removed tonight. 

The new price will be $49.50.  Up from the 2.5 fl.oz. current pricing of $39.50.

I shared this news earlier today on my Instagram page.

How To | DIY Garden Bee Hive | Made from The Dollar Store Supplies - April 18, 2019

I have always wanted to buy a Bee Skep for decorating the inside of my home and my garden but if you are like me and have searched for them too you would see just how expensive they are, how hard they are to find, and how quickly they sell out when found.

Luckily, I saw a creative way to make a Bee Hive while saving a ton of money.  After trying it for myself I just had to share the "How To" of this project for other DIY Crafters. 

Here is what you need to get started:

Bath & Body Works | Today's Purchases - April 15, 2019

​Since I have been buying a little bit of new here and there until today's release, there isn't much left on my list for me to get so my purchase today was smaller.  I grabbed two of the wallflowers that are on sale for $3.50 each, and five of the new pocketbacs.  The clear plastic gift bag was also on my list of things to grab; a perfect add on for any Gingham gifting.

The Moisturizing Body Wash was free with the bounceback coupon ( who doesn't love something for free, right ) and isn't that a pretty great deal for that?

This store I visited was sold out of the Strawberry Pound Cake candle.  There were six in the store on Saturday and I thought, okay, I will grab them on Monday.  Nope.  #seeitloveitBuyIt

Bath & Body Works | Tropical Candle Collection - New, Non Wrap Around Labels

When the Tropical Candle Collection launched it came with a beautiful wrap around label and white wax.  Newer versions hitting stores and online are now just a front label and the colored wax showing through the glass.

I prefer the wrap around label version myself but the colored wax is pretty too. Some of the label change versions found in my store are below.
