Fall 2016 Bath & Body Works Foaming Soap Haul!

Ah, the smell of Bath & Body Works in the Fall. I realize that it’s only July but B&BW (like all retail) is rolling out their Fall 2016 line and I’m pretty excited. The Fall scents are my absolute favorite. Here’s what I found in the foaming soaps.


First I have to say that I love the foaming style soap. Washes clean and leave a great scent. I tend to only like the Fall type scents, floral not so much.

Today I got…

Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin – This one is a but stronger and but I can’t smell straight cinnamon, to me it’s like spicy pumpkin pie.

Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte – I think this is my favorite of the haul. I tend to like anything with pumpkin and this one has a light pumpkin scent with lots of sweet latte which I assume is the marshmallow mixed in.

These are part of the fruit line, I love the matching colored pumps.

Honeycrisp Apple – I love anything apple and this Honeycrisp Apple is going in the kitchen today.

Black Cherry Merlot – This one is on the super strong side. It’s all cherry and smells wonderful.

Sparkling Pear Riesling – This one is a lighter scent of juicy pairs. Another great kitchen scent.

Lush Fizzbanger Bath Bomb Review

Once again Lush has got me again with their Fizzbanger Bath Bomb, I love this one too. It’s a flurry of color and crisp apple and cinnamon. So good for a Fall bath.

Fizzbanger is canary yellow and so pretty, but the center is bright blue, kind of reminds me of a Minion!


What’s to love?

Fizzbanger truly smells amazing. First it’s apple which then morphs into a spicy cinnamon toffee. It also felt super smooth on my hands.

As the blue and yellow merge the tub turns a wonderful shade a green. Part Wicked, part mossy forest. That first photo really is Minion like!



Inside you’ll also get a cool “Bang” of a surprise which is quite fun.


So I’m sold on Fizzbanger and all of the Lush Bath Bombs. I’ve reviewed a bunch right here.

Reminiscing About The iMac G3 (In Bondi Blue)

In January of 1999 my husband picked up an iMac G3 in Bondi Blue which was later discontinued. The five original colors were Strawberry, Blueberry, Lime, Grape, and Tangerine. I really wanted a grape or tangerine colored one. Lime was my least favorite color. Oddly they never came in pink, the closest was Flower Power.

Well we just found our old machine while cleaning out the basement and are ready to fire it up again. I have not doubt that it will work.

Ours was the tray loading machine and by today’s standards is quite archaic. It’s also really, really, really heavy…just try hauling this sucker around by the handle. I remember not being all that impressed with the graphics at the time but thought the styling was quite original. I definitely like my new iMac a lot better.

This machine was pretty popular in pop culture too, it was even featured in Malcolm in the Middle. Oh and remember Elle Woods and her tangerine iBook clamshell? I always thought it would be cool to have one and I give Apple a lot of credit for bringing style and beauty to the tech world. The old beige box PC was just plain awful. No wonder we hid them under our desks.

So cheers on the New Year’s Day to an old machine with a lot of class.
