A friend on Instagram, @saltrabbit._._ shared a photo with me today of something she found on a military base in a Bath and Body Works Store.  Check these cuties out... She mentioned that when she sees items on base they tend to come to regular stores so it would be awesome if this Limited Edition Gingham Teddy Bear showed up in all Bath and Body Works stores.Limited Edition Gingham Bear FREE with any $30 Bath and Body Works Purchase.  Limited Time Only. While Supplies Last.I cannot answer if and when we may see these in stores.  All I can suggest is we check with our stores to see if they saw/heard anything and should I hear any more information I will be sure to post.My thanks to @saltrabbit._._ for sharing this information with me, so that I can share it with you!

Guys, this plaid is for you.  Okay well, the inspiration of it is for a (potential) New Men's Gingham Body Care Fragrance...  These darker tones of blue plaid may be part of the packaging and we should see these forms as part of the collection:Shower GelBody LotionBody CreamDeodorizing SprayCologneMini CologneCurrently, I do not know any of the scent notes, nor do I know of a release date.  I would expect to see this released sometime in Spring 2020.  As I get more information, I will update my posting and share it on my social media pages.

Life Writing's | You've Got Mail!

I woke to the sun this morning, brightly piercing the small spaces in the blinds flooding my room with light. It was time to get up but truth be told an hour later would have been okay with me.  I rose, grabbed my phone and scuffed my feet across the carpet to the windows.The brisk air that filled the room when I opened the window to snap this morning's picture reminded me that the calendar reads January, not July and I closed it with a shiver. Another cold day ahead. Twelve degrees.I take a photo every morning when I wake for my personal Facebook page...a sort of archive of each day to remind me of the changes happening around me.  My friends and family in other states seem to appreciate this other look into my life...a sort of small way to close the distance gaps we all have.  I post the photo, dress and grab a banana and juice before heading out for the day.My Aunt was getting her hair done this morning before heading to Bath and Body Works and I wanted to try to surprise her and meet up with her before she got there.  She saw the new double Valentine Hearts wallflower online and wanted to grab a few of those today.  My meeting with her was to help her find the best use of her coupons for the items she wanted to get.  That, and I love seeing her.Fortunately, my timing was perfect as she was heading into the store at the same time I was and I showed her all of the new that had arrived that she would be interested in.  She's not a user of Bath and Body Works body care collections.  She has a signature scent; White Diamonds which smells beautiful on her, and she sticks to that alone.  She will carry a pocketbac holder on her bag...today she grabbed the pink fairy.  And she has used their candles and room sprays and has a collection to get through she said before buying more.  At 80, I wish her a very long life to get through them all so we can shop for more together.She made me laugh when she began noticing the price increases on everything around her.  Like my husband, she stated quite loudly in the store..." are they crazy?"  Her sudden outburst made me laugh out loud as I continued my hunt for her Sweet Pea Wallflower bulbs.  She then asks me did I notice the prices...to which I smiled and shook my head yes.  I mean...duah Auntie.Hence the other reason to come with her...she makes me laugh.She checks out her $68.00 purchase and I check out my $6 Strawberry Pound Cake Body Cream purchase and I walk her to her car. Along the way, we talk about the new car she would like to get...one that starts at $48,000 and I bat my eyes at the cost and our conversation...and she tells me how beautiful my eyes are, kisses and hugs me and goes on her way. My heart is happy.I continue with all of my errands and stop by the Post Office to check my box before taking food to my father in law.This PO Box is tied to the blog so while sometimes I get items to review, gifts from friends, junk mail and the occasional bill to pay, there is seldom a time I find a key in it.Meaning, I've Got Mail!  Of the package sort.I stick the numbered key into the corresponding numbered big mailbox and open it to find...a white box. For ME!My husband said I had a huge smile on my face as I left the post office, now clutching this white box while carefully walking to the car trying not to slip on the residual ice from last weekend's snowstorm.We still had things to finish before I would check out what was inside this box ---and let me tell you THAT was hard... haha... but when I did open it, I was blown away at the kindness and generosity shared.  So was he.What an incredible gift...these gifts from the heart from such a kind friend who wanted me to have them. Something that I have mentioned here in passing as blurbs of thought at the time...written, then moved on from.  Never expecting to get them.  Either by missing out on trying to get them or by them never being available to get. Now sitting before me.Thank you can't even come close to expressing the depth of joy I felt in receiving the gift...but Thank You, Thank You So Much!  Your kindness, like the sun this morning, added to the happiness of my day.

Bath & Body Works | Members Reward APP - Variable Offering To Select Markets | Saltwater Breeze Body Care Full Size or Fun Size Products Free with $20 Purchase

A friend shared with me a special offer that popped up on his Member Rewards App for the New! Saltwater Breeze Body Care happening on Wednesday Only, in select markets only. Others who received a different offering took to social media to share what they had found and as the evening progressed, some rewards members who did NOT find this offering in their APP made their voices heard as well. My friend @lc_bathandbodyworks shared his APP offering photo of the Free Fun Size Bundle of Saltwater Breeze with any $20 purchase...available online and in-store.The other offer floating around was for two free FULL-SIZE products; a fine fragrance mist and a body cream.I am not sure of all of the areas that tested out this marketing, and social media seems to be pretty quiet as to who else received it and participated in it.But I will say when it comes to anything APP related, many people are getting really Mad that their locations STILL are not included.  When I first shared ( what feels like a hundred years ago now ) the information that they were going to release an APP and there would be incredible benefits to it..I got poo-pooed with the disbelief of such a thing coming...when it did come, I was thrilled...but then disappointed that it would need testing before it went wide.So test it did...and still is currently...with a few markets here and there being added slowly.  Slowly being the keyword.  I mean my nana was slow but she was almost one hundred years old.  Come on already. The best kind of test...if you ask me...and truth be told...they aren't asking me a thing....but the best test is trial...and error.  We see there are errors...we read about them daily online and I hear SOOOOO many APP stories. It was to launch last June...then at Holiday.  Now I am hearing, again...before summer.  I am hoping they mean this year.  Ohio was just added to the APP Party.  Yipee.  So, fingers crossed we all could become part of the family very soon.Until then fellow APP Brothers and Sisters, I will continue to share the offerings to keep you informed.

Bath & Body Works | Sweet On You Body Care Collection | What I've Purchased So Far

The release of the New Bath and Body Works Sweet On You Body Care Collection has finally happened today ( some stores have had them out for a few weeks already, just not here ) and I was there at opening waiting to get my hands on more of these delish foodie scents. I was able to try and buy just the body lotions on Friday with the buy two get one free sale pricing, but I held off on getting the entire collection until I saw a decent price on the fragrance mists. I am not a fan of the $15.50 new, raised pricing But with this collection's popularity so far, it may not go on a $6 or $7 pricing sale so I guess I better not wait too long. Today I grabbed three shower gels and added the Margarita Cupcake Body Cream using the $6.00 body cream coupon from the mailer combining it with the 20% off coupon.  It brought the pricing of the body cream down to $4.80.Later in the week, I will grab the Confetti Cake Pop Body Cream to add to that collection.For me, these kinds of scents have a place and time when I will be wearing them.  I love smelling like a woman...florals or fresh and clean when I am out and about.  Food-Inspired fragrances are adored in the evening, after a shower...or days off on weekends for me to enjoy. The packaging for me is on-trend.  Chalkboard mania is everywhere so why not body care labels, right?  The charming font chosen with textured raised lettering is only complete with the chalkboard-inspired motifs of each Bake Shop scent. This is the type of signage I would expect to see behind the counter at my favorite bakery.Although I think they missed out on huge sales of candles with not offering some in matching, chalkboard-inspired labeled jars. With textured, lattice lids.  And Pocketbacs and Hand Soaps with Matching Labels!!!!Something to note: the Strawberry Pound Cake Body Care Collection has Capital Letters on its label while the Margarita Cupcake and Confetti Cake Pop do not...leading me to believe that this highly-requested, now finally here to match the Home Collection of products will be staying when the other two scents leave.I really like all of the scents and if I have to rate them according to favorites I would say Strawberry Pound Cake, Margarita Cupcake and then Confetti Cake Pop.I did not yet try the shower gel so I will make note of how these fragrances translate into that form at a later date. I find the Strawberry to not smell synthetic or plastic. My first thought when the scent hit my nose was Nestle's Strawberry Quick that then changes to include a cream note.Margarita Cupcake smells bright and citrusy on the first sniff drying down to a subtle floral-like vanilla scent on me. It smells familiar and welcoming to me. I am not sure what I can say to describe Confetti Cake Pop other than it's vanilla. I would suggest you try these scents for yourself in store...and then grab your favorite(s) and take it home with you to see how it fits into your fragrance wardrobe.  If you have a tween or a teen's birthday coming up...grab them some of these lotions and shower gels before they are gone.  This packaging alone screams PARTY!
