Shopping Diaries: My Bath & Body Works Semi Annual Haul!

I always get really excited for the Bath and Body Works Semi Annual Sales – but it took a lot of self control not to go yesterday when Alli (check out her haul here) called to tell me they had some of my favorites on sale – especially Wild Honeysuckle. It’s probably my favorite Bath & Body Works scent… ever. I stocked up a few months ago when Wild Honeysuckle popped up on the website – so I decided to get an extra body wash and both of the antibacterial soaps – one for the kitchen, one for the bathroom. Into the Wild is also a favorite – I absolutely love it for summer, and the Body Scrub is amazing. I also got two of my favorite candles to round it all off. I’ll probably be going back, but what do you plan on picking up?


Katie’s Spring Favorite’s: Candles

Alli and I both absolutely love candles and I’m especially fond of the 3-wick Bath and Body Works candles by Slatkin and Co.Β  They all smell delicious and there is something for everyone – I often lean towards the floral scents in the spring and one of my absolute favorite’s is Flower Shop. I’m new to fragrance reviews, so I’ll just stick with the website description, Flower Shop is “the delightful scent of fresh-cut spring flowers – sweet lilac, pink freesia and hyacinth layered with cooling greens.” It really does smell like fresh flowers – and there are few things that can brighten my mood better than fresh flowers (I received a lovely arrangement of roses from my mom for Teacher appreciation week!).

My second choice was Honeysuckle. My all time favorite bath and body works scent was Wild Honeysuckle and I was devastated when it was quietly discontinued -I’m happy to report that the Honeysuckle candle smells just like the Wild Honeysuckle line. The description reads: On a walk through a secret garden, sweet honeysuckle intertwines with pink peony, freesia and a touch of creamy vanilla.

Absolute perfection. What I love most about these candles is their ability to fill a room with beautiful fragrance without being overwhelming. A few other of my favorites include Spring, First Bloom, and Green Grass.

The 3-wick candles (normally $19.50) are currently 2 for $20 – with any additional candle being $10 – and if you get the B&BW emails – there was recently a $10 off $30 purchase, so you can get 3 candles for $20 – such a great deal!

What’s your favorite candle or spring scent?
