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!
Check out my video review and demo of the Bath & Body Works Fall 2019 Pumpkin Peanut Brittle on YouTube!
Well it’s that time of year again where Fall is popping out all over including Bath & Body Works and I’m thrilled! I’m one of those people who is happy to pack up the pool and dive right into pumpkin scents!
Bath & Body Works currently has over 60 Fall 2019 candles online and a whole bunch showing up in stores. I picked up Pumpkin Peanut Brittle and Pumpkin Cupcake today. As I video review these candles on YouTube I’ll link them below. I’ll also add any new Bath & Body Works Fall candles that come out in the coming months!

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!
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.

So as many of you know I am recovering from a unilateral mastectomy with no reconstruction. I found out I had DCIS which is Stage 0 breast cancer in April and I made the choice to have my right breast removed so that I could avoid radiation and further biopsies as I also have intraductal papillomas too. What a ride! I had my surgery was on April 24th and I thought I was pretty well educated going in but there are a few tings I wish I had known in advance.
Here is my Top 5 list of Amazon “must-haves” that I really appreciated while recovering from my mastectomy. FYI – I did add Amazon affiliate links here. Amazon Prime was my best friend as I could get things pretty much the next day.
The Drain Jacket – I really balked at buying this sucker as it was $59.99 and not exactly fashionable. I chose black because I thought it looked cooler and you can’t see the blood on black. The Breast Cancer Recovery Tee with Internal Drain Management Pockets comes with drain pockets which made it possible to sleep without ripping out my dreaded JP drain. I literally wore this jacket for 8 days. My husband would wash and dry it at night while I took a shower. I had a love/hate relationship with this jacket. Yes, those are frozen peas on my chest!
A Pillow Nest with a Wedge! Oh my gosh, that first night I was a huge mess. It’s hard to lay down and impossible to lay on your side after a mastectomy so I bought an Abco Tech Bed Wedge Pillow with Memory Foam Top. The wedge allowed me to lay on my back and be propped up enough that my incision didn’t pull. I then surrounded myself with regular pillows — under my arms, heads and legs for further comfort. I had a nice pillow nest going on for 2 weeks!
A Front Close Bra – Fruit of the Loom is now on my BFF list for these Front Close Racerback Bras. There is no way to get a sports bra on without a front closure after a mastectomy. This bra is so comfortable and easy to put on. It was gave me some compression which I need to feel secure. It’s weird having a tighter bra made me feel so much better. I did not have reconstruction and I think the light pressure helped with swelling. I have since ordered 6 more of these bras as they are so inexpensive.
Dial Soap – It’s been years since I bought a bar of Dial Soap! You all know that I love Bath & Body Works and Lush but having a huge incision inspired me to get some good old fashioned Dial Antibacterial Deodorant Soap. You can’t shave or wear deodorant after a mastectomy and the smell of this soap made me feel really clean and I didn’t stink which is a real moral builder.
The Super Pack of Sterile Pads – After I had my JP Drain (I really hated this thing) removed it was super irritated and the hole leaked for about a week after it was pulled. Hence the Curad Sterile Non-Adherent Pads were a miracle for me. Band-Aids didn’t do the trick and these pads fit under my compression bra to soak up the excessive fluid (yes, I know — yuck).
Needless to say when that blue Amazon truck pulled up each day I was pretty darn excited. I utilized Prime Pantry quite a bit too. Having fruit snacks and Doritos delivered to my door gave me hope of recovery!
Who remembers the Avon decanters? These were such a part of my childhood and I’m thrilled that Avon has brought them back.
The new Avon Limited-Edition Mesmerize Sports Car Decanter is here just in time for Father’s Day and it’s so sleek and cool.
First up the Mesmerize Sports Car Decanter comes in a super neat blue and white box that looks like a license plate and it feels hefty. The blue glass car has a deep sapphire hue and the cologne is Mesmerize which is a blend of zesty bergamot, cool cardamom and rich precious woods.
I had my husband do a sniff test and he was pretty impressed. It also looks neat on our dresser so a thumbs up from me too!
I just picked up the Bath & Body Works / White Barn Black Cherry Merlot Collection and I am loving it! The notes on the Black Cherry Merlot are Dark Cherry, Black Raspberry and Sumptuous Merlot. To me it smells like rich dark cherry and it’s wonderful! I love the entire line.
The Bath & Body Works Black Cherry Merlot comes in:
Ultra Shea Body Cream, Moisturizing Body Wash, Fine Fragrance Mist, Foaming Hand Soap, Nourishing Hand Soap, Creamy Luxe Hand Soap, Hand Cream, Concentrated Room Spray, Fragrance Melt, Car Fragrance Refill, Wallfowers Fragrance Refill, Single Wick Candle and 3-Wick Candle.
Overall I am super impressed with these new products and I am so glad that Bath & Body Works created a new body wash!
