Bath & Body Works Pink Velvet Cupcake Review

I picked up the new Bath & Body Works Pink Velvet Cupcake collection this week and WOW I am loving it.

The notes are sparkling red berries, whipped pink marshmallow & sugared praline and comes in the Ultra Shea Cream, Body Lotion, Shower Gel and Fine Fragrance Mist.

The light berries and sugar make for the perfect daytime scent! This one is fresh and fruity and I’m so glad that we now have a berry/marshmallow scent for Fall! The praline also gives it a deeper more nutty scent. The packaging is also pretty with a metallic pink pattern and cursive writing.

Best Bubbles On The Planet!

So I’m a bit biased. My child was a Gymboree Play & Music kid when she was little and I do a bit of contract work for this company but darn it, they have the best bubbles on the planet with their Bubble Ooodles in my opinion!

After using dollar store bubbles that bust, break and are just plain messy Bubble Ooodles are a dream. The formula is thick and the groovy wand blows nice tiny bubbles that are mesmerizing for both kids and adults! You can even catch them on your finger — yes I’ve done this!

I just helped Gymboree Play & Music set up a way to buy Bubbles Ooodles online and you can now buy them here. My friends who are teachers swear by the Bubble Ooodles formula and even as an adult I can honestly say I love playing with them! That’s me blowing tiny bubbles below!

I have the Bubble Ooodles starter pack (which is only $9.99) and comes with the wand, tray and 4 oz. of bubbles. Shipping is super reasonable too!

Bath & Body Works Fall 2019 Warm Apple Pie Candle Review

Today I am burning Warm Apple Pie from the Bath & Body Works Fall 2019 candle collection and it’s pretty darn good!

The notes in the Warm Apple Pie Candle are Baked Granny Smith Apple, Melted Brown Sugar, Flaky Homemade Crust.

Warm Apple Pie has an amazing deep red wax and the throw is about a medium. After an hour of burning Warm Apple Pie my kitchen had a nice apple pie scent that was sweet and crusty. Warm Apple Pie does not have a cinnamon or vanilla scent, it’s more sweet, gooey, toasty, appley goodness!

Bath & Body Works Fall 2019 Pumpkin Peanut Brittle Candle Review

As we move into late Summer my brain is all about Fall and I am so excited that Bath & Body Works is bringing out their Fall 2019 candle collection!

One of my favorite Fall scents is the Bath & Body Works Pumpkin Peanut Brittle, the notes are Crunchy Caramel Brittle, Salty Peanuts, Toasted Pumpkin Seeds.

While Pumpkin Peanut Brittle smells nice cold the warm throw is even better with a smooth peanut butter and pumpkin mix that wafted through my entire house. I need to pick up a few extras of this one to make it to November. Just wow!

The Wet N Wild Pac-Man Collection Is Driving This 80’s Girl Mad!

As an 80’s girl who did indeed spend a great many hours playing Pac-Man I literally squealed with joy when I saw that Wet N Wild was releasing a Pac-Man Make-Up Collection. However my hopes were dashed when I found out that it was only available online at Ulta for about 3 1/2 seconds…that’s less time than it takes to be eaten Blinky, Pinky, Inky and/or Clyde!

I’m not exactly sure why Wet N Wild is denying middle-ages moms the privilege of owning Ghost Gloss in Pinky but I am freaking out! Why oh why is this set sold out? Are they bringing it back? I need answers.

I am seriously hoping this is just a pre-launch and the Pac-Man Collection will show up on the Wet N Wild website which I am checking daily because this almost 50 year-old girl geek would be pretty darn happy to wear some fruity blush right now!

Hopefully you’ll see a review coming soon!

Bath & Body Works Cactus Blossom Review

The new Bath & Body Works Cactus Blossom Collection officially releases on Monday July 8th but it’s starting to show up in store now so I picked up a few products!

The notes for Cactus Blossom include: Bright Cactus Petals, Sun-Kissed Coconut and Vanilla which to me smells like an earthy blend with a hint of coconut and vanilla.

The Collection includes the: Aloe Lotion (which I need to get), Ultra Shea Body Cream, Moisturizing Body Wash, Exfoliating Body Polish, Super Smooth Body Lotion, Hand Cream, Foaming Hand Soap, Shower Gel and Fine Fragrance Mist.

I also picked up the Cactus Blossom 3-Wick Candle which has gorgeous light purple wax and a succulents in purple and green in the label! So pretty.
