Musings of the Day: What Did You Haul During the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale?

It’s possible abnormal to walk out of Bath & Body Works hauling out a bag of twenty or so candles but that’s exactly what happened to me during the Semi-Annual Sale.

I really, really wanted to indulge during the typical two for twenty deal when Bath & Body originally launched some of their Spring/Summer 2012 candles but couldn’t justify a purchase since I had SO many left over from Christmas.

But since they are on sale plus extra coupons and such floating around the Internet I ended up hauling.

Where I’m storing all of this is anyone’s guess!

Outside of the candles I also picked up some home fragrance oils and some of the silver plated candle holders.

What about you?

What sort of major haul did you do at Bath & Body Works?

Share your haul with me!

Curious what everyone got.

Did anyone feel this year’s sale was kinda small-ish compared the year’s past?

I remember hauling X-mas stuff, older products, etc…during the sale and tons of accessories and such. This year it seemed like the stuff on sale was mostly products they just recently launched this Spring/Summer.

Musings of the Day: Waterless Shower Anyone?

Even the good Doctor needs a little water in his shower!

Remember old dime novel sci-fi novels and flicks that would have occupants of a space shuttle jump into a cubicle for a water-free shower?

I mean the idea sounds rather fab. Jumping into a stall and coming out of it clean as a daisy? Heck, some novels, shows, and movies depict people going in with their clothes on and coming out with new clothes and a freshly washed body.

But honestly, I’m all for water. I take a shower in the AM and indulge in a calming, relaxing Lush bath in the evening on cold Fall and Winter nights. Fact is, I rely on water to wake me up! That splash in my face in the morning is just what I need to get me into work mode because facts is facts I am SO NOT a morning person.

What if water factored out of your shower experience?

Would you be cool with a waterless shower?

E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder

E.L.F. when you do things right you do things right and your new Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder is all kinds of right.

At some point in my makeup life I avoided powder under my eyes in a major way. It was aging me terribly and just wasn’t a good idea all around. I discovered Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder and proceeded to hate all over it. At the time I was just starting to have issues with dryness under my eyes and was really struggling with how to treat the issue. Needless to say after I started moisturizing my eyes properly I enjoyed Laura’s powder and later discovered even nicer products for settling my concealer like Skin Food’s Salmon Powder and Benefit Powderflage.

Needless to say when E.L.F. Studio High Definition Undereye Setting Powder launched I was curious. Three dollar setting powder? Mmmm…!

Take a look!
