|10/15/18| My Weekend Fall Shopping Trip

October 15, 2018

I spent my weekend mostly relaxing, but on Saturday I ended up doing a spur of the moment Fall shopping spree. It wasn’t really supposed to be that big of a shopping trip, as I was really only planning to go out and get some groceries. However, that ended up turning into going to 6 different places, and most of my Saturday ended up disappearing.

Fashion

If you hadn’t read my blog posts about my recent purchases from the Pink Lily Boutique, I have already started building my Fall wardrobe, and you’d think I’d be done by now. Well, never underestimate my ability to lose self-control, and buy more clothes. You can never have enough sweaters, cardigans, and boots… All the clothing and shoes are from Ross, and they were all great prices. Each sweater/cardigan was below $15 each, and both boots were around $25 each.

I have bought a lot of cardigans this year, and that’s pretty unlike me. I’m usually more interested in sweaters and sweatshirts to make it through the colder season, but I guess my taste is kind of changing. I think my favorite cardigan is the rusty orange one with the stripes. It kind of appears redder on the photo, but it definitely is a real rusty orange. I also am pretty excited about my new boots.

Oh and not fashion related, but I also bought this coffee mug at Ross. It’s huge, and I am absolutely in love with it. I might be using this past Halloween, as I don’t think I have another mug like this one. 

Beauty

I’ve needed some refills on my usual eyebrow products, and I of course left with many more things. I have to say that I at least bought things that I will use this time, and not things that will just waste away in my drawers.

The liquid lipstick I got from Morphe has been absolutely amazing. It doesn’t dry up my lips, and it applies smoothly. The eyeshadow palette I got was also an amazing buy, and the colors are beautiful. They have three other palettes like the one I bought with different shades, and I definitely recommend checking them out.

I am a big fan of the Stila mascara and liquid eyeliner too, and I’m trying the IT foundation out for the first time so I will let you all know how that goes. So far, I’ve noticed that it’s lightweight, and you can barely tell it is even on. However, I find my skin looks great with it on, and it has just the right amount of coverage. (Not shown, I also bought an NYX eyebrow pencil and NYX eyebrow gel.)

Bath & Bodyworks

It wouldn’t be a real last minute shopping spree without me getting some candles from Bath & Bodyworks. I recently did a Fall candle haul, and I got most of the new Fall collection that they had come out with. There were some that I wasn’t that interested in buying because of the scents. Either they smelled too similar to something I already own, or I didn’t like the scent. (I have over 50 candles, so the first reason is usually why I don’t buy some candles.)

These 5 candles were not really necessary, but I talked myself into it because I had a great coupon and they also weren’t like others I have. Except for the apple one. I have plenty of apple candles, but that’s one of my favorite scents. I also got a couple from the Winter collection. I have to say that I usually don’t like the Winter scents, but these were pretty nicely scented. They are also true to their scent when they are burning too, which is always important to me when I decide on if I want to re-purchase.

I also bought these handsoaps, because I was running low on my stash at home. These are new scents to me, but I think I’m going to like them. They had a pretty good deal this weekend for 5 for $23, and I figured it was good to stock up on some so I don’t get tempted to go back in a couple weeks.

Finally

The rest of what I got was mostly groceries. Which was what I went out for in the first place, but I did buy a few more last minute Fall things while I was out. Pumpkins and flowers <3 The cat is none other than Littlebit (one of the two animals I named this blog after.) She was more interested in the squirrels in the tree beind me, than the pumpkins.

The pumpkins were so tiny and cute; I couldn’t help myself. It was the biggest impulse buy, but they are a cute addition to my Halloween decorations at home. As for the flowers, I did kind of have an idea of getting them for a while now, but I just haven’t got around to it. I finally did, and I’m glad. It really makes it feel like Fall now. The weather in Georgia can be kind of back and forth, and it usually doesn’t get really cold until November. So I have to use Fall decorations to at least make it feel like Fall for a while.

Overall, I enjoyed my shopping day on Saturday, and had a great weekend overall. What did you do this weekend? Have you got in the Fall spirit yet?

Bath & Bodyworks Fall Candle Haul

October 2, 2018

If you know anything about me, you know that I LOVE candles! Almost to the point of I love them too much. Let’s be honest, I own over 50 Bath & Bodyworks candles so I’m pretty sure I passed that point already.

Now I don’t just go into Bath & Bodyworks and buy 15 candles in one shopping trip. I might end up with 8 at the most per trip, but usually it’s between 4-6. Since I am living at my parents house as I am finishing up college, they also love the candles. Usually each shopping trip we split up the candles. I pay for half of them, and they pay for half of them. We also only buy candles when they are 50% off(which happens pretty often) and we have a 20% off coupon.

My Fall Collection

Over the past month and a half, my mom and I have gone to Bath & Bodyworks at least twice and bought probably 12 or so candles altogether. So we have got almost all of the Fall collection apart from a handful of ones we didn’t really like.

I think my favorites are the apple cinnamon cider, leaves, and autumn. Don’t get me wrong, I like all of them to a certain extent, but those are my go-to’s. I think the only ones I wouldn’t repurchase is bourbon maple and blueberry maple pancakes. They smell great, but the throw the candles give out is a little too strong. I can’t leave them burning for a long time, and usually I like to have a softer throw for candles. However, both bourbon maple and blueberry maple pancake are true scent wise. 

What candles have you bought from their Fall/Autumn candles? What is your favorite?
