LA Haul #5 | Bath & Body Works Goodies

Hello My Lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well and have had a fabulous weekend! I love have lazy pamper Sundays - although you know the weekend is coming to an end, boo! I thought i would post another instalment to my LA Hauls and the goodies i picked up at Bath & Body Works. When i went they were transitioning the products in store for Autumn and Winter items and i kid you not you could literally smell the most yummiest caramel, pecan waffle scent from across the mall and it literally drew us into store. I literally have no idea how i am going to cope when i run out of the items i picked up - I am wishing i purchased a few more and some of the larger candles but we literally could not fit anything else in our luggage haha. I know you can purchase some of the items on eBay and Amazon but the prices are like triple which is insane but know doubt i will be making a purchase when my candles run out *cries*. 

The Pumpkin Pecan Waffle scented candle was the one that you could smell from across the mall and it literally drew us in as it was the most yummiest scent ever! So i thought i would pick one up for the Autumn / Winter time to use at home. Bath and Body Works describe this scent as a delight of scrumptious pumpkin pecan waffles with pure maple syrup and a touch of brown sugar - it literally sounds and smells good enough to eat! We then decided to get a few of the mini candles as they are super adorable and were easy to transport home. The first scent we decided to get was Mahogany Teakwood and i kid you not this candles smells exactly like Abercrombie! I am obsessed with the Abercrombie Fierce cologne and actually wear it myself and i absolutely loved the thought og my room smells like an Abercrombie store. Bath and Body Works describe this scent as a cosy fine woods fragrance combined with mahogany, cedarwood and oak which is highlighted by delicate lavender and geranium notes. Words cannot express how obsessed i am with this candle! The next mini candle we wanted to try was Marshmallow Fireside and this is pretty much a self explanatory purchase as i love love love marshmallows, toasting them and even in my hot chocolates. Bath and Body Works describe it as a candle to match the changing seasons with a warm blend of toasted marshmallows, smouldering woods and creamy vanilla which remind you of a cozy evening round a bonfire. This is going to be another favourite throughout the Autumn / Winter time. The last candle we purchased was Frosted Cupcake which is actually the one i initially went into purchase as it is a favoured one amongst the bbloggers community and i am absolutely obsessed with cupcakes. Bath and Body Works describe it as a candle that will really indulge your sweet tooth. There are notes of fresh vanilla bean, sugar, cake batter and a rich buttercream frosting combined to create a sweet fragrance treat which smells like the real deal. Bath and Body Works candles are seriously incredible and if i could i would have purchased every single candle they sold - but unfortunately due to British Airways weight restrictions i had to restrain myself haha. There is nothing i love more than burning a yummy candle during the winter time. 

The hand sanitisers (anti-bacs) were something else i had on my wish list that i wanted to pick up whilst i was in LA and i was literally so overwhelmed with the selections out on display in the store i did not know where to start. All in all i must have purchased 30 as they were on a special deal and i wanted some duplicates for back up (sad i know) and i also gave some away for gifts. Everything smells pretty much true to the name and i have thrown a load in my handbags and car so i make sure to have them on me at all times as they are a necessity for me - hand sanitiser is a must wherever i go so these new ones are my new little obsession! The one thing i forgot to add in the pictures was the hand sanitiser holder i picked up but i am sure it will make an appearance on my Instagram soon (@SophiaMeola). It was a pink sparkly one with rhinestones and i thought it shouted uber girlyness and it would look lush on my car keys with my Tiffany and Co key ring - i love matchy matchy things! The hand sanitiser scents i decided to pick up were...

I hope you all enjoyed the fifth instalment to my LA Haul and all of the Bath and Body Works goodies i picked up. I would love to know what you think and if you have tried any of the items mentioned. I would also love to know what your favourite winter past time is - do you love to burn candles too? What are you essentials for a cosy night in during the winter time? Like always lovelies, if you have an questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and i make sure to read every single comment...they really make my day!

  7. I would love to smell B&B works candles, everyone is raving about them. Since I can't get my hands on them, I have to be happy with Yankee candles, which also smell amazing and are a must in the autumn/winter :)

  8. I wish I could smell those candles - they smell gorgeous!

  9. I really wish we had bath and body works here. You can get some bits off ebay relatively cheap (the anti bac) but the candles still cost a fair bit!
