It is a Happy Monday for sure because Bath and Body Works New Sunset Glow Body Care Collection has been added to store shelves and a few forms of it have shown up online today. We heard that the stores were doing an updating sort of set for today and from the photos showing up on social media sites, people are out shopping and finding plenty of new scented pretties.

I miss the good ole days with a scheduled release of things in stores and the online site getting them released a week sooner.  Heck, I miss stores and being able to walk in and find something new daily.  I trust when it will be my time to shop, the stores here will open...and I will decide if I want to stand in long lines. And I know the lines will be long because, well, it's the place you go to smell The Happy...and we have been denied The Happy for a LONG time.


Captivating like a beautiful sunset, addictive like a sugar rush. This is a sweet treat that you've been craving. Inspired by warm summer nights and delicious confections.  Sunset Glow is free-spirited perfection from sunrise to sunset.

Scent Notes: Fresh Coconut, Sparkling Cherry Seltzer, Dreamy Moonflower, and Caramelized Vanilla.

One of my favorite planners to keep track of my day-to-day is the Happy Planner I find at Michael's Craft Store.  Usually, their assortment of happy planners is huge, and the sizes of the planners vary from the very small purse size to bigger desk versions.  I am that girl who loves her a cute sticker and organizing things and when you put them together it becomes total happiness.

 
I use a small calendar in my purse to keep track of doctor visits, a planner, and a journal book on my desk for blogging and the Happy Planner fills in the rest of the gaps.  I could use my cell phone, sure, but I am old school and love things written down to review again and again.  There is something so personal about the written word.  It evokes emotion like no text or typed word could ever do.
 
Back to school supplies are filling the shelves at our Dollar Tree and Walmart stores so now is the perfect time to stock up on office supplies, calendars, and planners.
 
These are some of the Dollar Tree Planner/Calendars that are available in assorted colors, sizes, and glittered covers.
 
This is the Happy Planner I was able to purchase at Michaels this week. 
 
Because the stores were closed these past months, shipments haven't caught up since they re-opened so the selection of 2021 (18 months) planners was very limited in the size I wanted.  I looked through bunches of 2019/2020 planners scattered all over the display and found this one with the beautiful blue cover that was for 2021 way in the back.  
 
I don't really think of myself as magical, and I usually prefer a floral theme layout but after looking for one and not finding any I grabbed this and called it a day.  This cost me $25 on sale, and I cannot wait to begin filling it up.
 
One thing to note: My photos aren't doing this planner justice; the coloration is truly vibrant and rich and if you are in the market for a planner, check your Michael's Craft Store Happy Planner aisle. 
 
 
 
After taking my father in law to his doctor visit on Tuesday, I ran to Michaels to find my Happy Planner and saw that they were beginning to set up some Halloween, Christmas, and Fall Florals!!!

Here are a few photos of the items I saw. I didn't want to stay in the store shopping long as my husband was in the hot car waiting for me so I took only a few photos.

Months ago I mentioned there was a New fragrance from Bath and Body Works coming possibly for August this year and it is called Dahlia.  Here is a first look at that fragrance with the scent notes and forms we could see it in.

As summer eases into fall, wild Dahlias paint the landscape in their soft pinks, deep crimson, and luxe golds.  Inspired by this beautiful sight, Dahlia by Bath and Body Works is a uniquely luminous and cozy fragrance that embodies bold femininity.

Bath and Body Works usually puts out a few body care collections for fall and so far, I think I have found three; the chalkboard labels, the Bonfire Bash (also includes Sweater Weather) label, and this other label.  While I don't yet know the names of the collections, I have been finding some of the scents and scent notes for them so I wanted to share that now for this second collection.

Fall Body Care Collection:

Champagne Apple and Honey - pink lady apple, sparkling champagne, jasmine honey, autumn woods
Golden Sunflower - sunflower petals, orange flower, fresh vanilla
Lavender in Bloom - lavender fields, lily of the valley, sun-washed driftwood

I will be getting the body lotions for this collection this week but I can tell you about the packaging on the Body Cream in the Lavender in Bloom that I do have.  Of course, as you would expect it is in shades of purples and the photo used is that of rolling mountains of lavender flowers.  { A quick note...a friend shared with me that while looking at the blackberries and basil hand soap label, the same photo was used on that as is used on the lavender in bloom body cream...with just more light added. Cool, right?} Interesting how Bath and Body Works uses their photos as marketing.  I have seen and shared the online photo of the hand soap, but with stores not yet open I haven't seen it in person yet.

As I said, the product is lavender-colored, including the cap.  There is a gold band at the edge of the tube by the cap and in the lower portion of the name block. A spray of gold dots is at the top as an accent.  There is a tag line on the back below the scent notes.  It reads, " Escape to purple fields of blooming lavender, where a soothing scent perfumes the air."

Why the Body Lotion bottle doesn't have this same kind of photo on it is beyond me.  I am really not thrilled with the plainness of this bottle.  I am not sure if this tested out anywhere or planned to test somewhere and then was canceled, but these are the products I am buying to talk about the scents.  When I hear more I will post.

Personally, I love Lavender products for any time of the year as it is one of those fragrances that you don't relate a time of year to.  They always make the perfect gift and this scent falls into that idea perfectly.  I am smelling it as I wear it and it has been staying at the same scent strength throughout the day.   The notes read that there is a lily in here, I couldn't be sure I smell that.  I get gently muted, relaxing lavender smell like that of an Aromatherapy product.

Could it be something we have had?  I am not sure.  But it does smell familiar like it was a candle fragrance as well.

So far I have seen Body Lotion, Body Cream, and Shower Gels as the forms available.  I am not sure if and when we will see this launch in stores and online but when it is known to me, you know I will also share that information.

 

Edited: July 16th -
I received the Champagne Apple and Honey, Golden Sunflower, and Lavender in Bloom Body Lotions, and the bottles are prettier in person than pictured.  The brightly colored lids are a perfect accent to the textured colored rectangle on the bottle label.
 
I am interested in seeing what the fine fragrance mists are going to look like.
 
The Golden Sunflower smells wonderful on and I think it is a redo of Sunshine Days Bright Sunflowers as the scent notes are the same.
 
When I am sure of the collection name, and when they will release in stores and online I will post it. 

Here is a First Look at some New Pumpkin Hand Soaps coming to Bath and Body Works this fall.  Thanks to @offhandbathandbody for sharing these as they are coming to stores.
