Bath & Body Works & Labor Day Weekend Purchases

Happy Labor Day Everybody! I hope you're having an awesome holiday. I get so excited when all the Fall releases come out this time of year :) It's my favorite time of year. I did some online shopping this weekend & caught some really good sales, but I first stopped by my local Bath & Body Works to sniff test their Fall scents. I didn't buy anything there, but waited for them to go on sale & placed my order online. I placed 3 orders this weekend, because there was a different sale each day. I got 40% off each product via email one day. Half-off 3-wick candles + 20% off by using ebates and the code "longweekend" another day (always check ebates to see if their deal is better than what the store is offering). Buy 3, Get 3 Free body products another day. I must say, I've become a savvy online shopper! HaHaHa My UPS man will not be thrilled. LOL Here are some pics from their Fall Collection.

How cute are these displays? Faux pies & cakes! Yes, please! I'm so tempted to go back and say, don't throw these away when the season is over...give them to me! Their marketing team gets an A+ LOL

They also had black cat, pumpkin, ghost and Halloween themed EVERYTHING!

Below is what I purchased from Bath & Body Works (online) this weekend. I can't wait to get them. 
As you can see, I love baked scents! Hoping the weather turns cooler soon.

I bought clothes you guys! LMAO Nothing fun. Just business attire. Talbots had a nice sale and I had accrued a couple of $25 gift certificates. So I purchased a toffee colored pantsuit & skirt. Also, in their catalog they showed a lot of navy & camel outfits with leopard flats. I never thought of that color combination. I already have leopard flats, so I purchased this navy pencil skirt and toffee turtleneck. It's camel! But this year, they're calling it toffee. LOL I also like cross-body bags. So I purchased the two below. I don't do a lot of personal fashion on my blog, but my true style is very minimal & classic. I've experimented with other things in the past, but this is me.

My contractors finally finished the last two rooms of my house. Yaaay! So it's now time to start ordering furniture. I have new tv's, so I needed a tv stand and table to match. I also needed an umbrella stand. Found all 3 on Joss & Main. I love that site and they have really good deals. My home is understated too ;) BTW, the only thing I need for my makeup room is a lighted mirror. I found one I like here, but it's $750. HaHaHa I've been waiting for a sale, but to no avail. LOL

I didn't buy any makeup this weekend! LOL I'm actually waiting on the MAC x Taraji Collection to drop Sept. 6 and Selena Collection the latter part of September. What did you do this weekend? >.<

Don't you just love the sales! Great stuff, Kim. I tried to behave myself, well I said I tried, lol. Have lots of fun tomorrow. Happy and save Labor day, girl.

Mica T said...

Oh you bought a lot of great things! :) I really like those displays too. I was thinking it was a little early for Halloween, but I guess it's September already. This year has flown by!

Happy Labor Day Kim! Hope you're enjoying a nice long weekend! It looks like you got a nice jump on your fall shopping already. It's always exciting when items for a new season start coming out and even more exciting to shop them. You must be thrilled that your house is finally finished. Congrats and have fun ordering your furniture. Joss & Main is one of my fave home decor sites :)

Shira said...

Ooh those scents look amazing and lol to 3 separate orders- you gotta do what you gotta do! Your clothing purchases look like great staples as well!

Bath & Body Works is a wonderful place! I love the new product packaging. Fall scents are my favorite. They seem to be so comforting. Talbots is so classic. I love their clothes too! Beautiful Joss & Main pieces. :)

Soozle said...

Great choices! I LOVE the fall B&BW collections - the pumpkin scents are soooo good :)


Sounds all exciting Kim, and I too do love the autumn season. It's such a great time of year, and when the leaves finally fall I will rejoice. haha. The candles look like I'd love them, and I am happy to hear about your home coming together.

You sure are one savvy shopper Kim. I love bath and body works. I mean who doesn't? My favorite Fall scent is Cinnamon Pumpkin. I usually buy enough to last almost a year call me crazy but I like it that much. Just so festive and a great reminder that the holiday season is around the corner. Your UPS guy and mine should probably get together and talk about what to do with us. It's nonstop with me, lol. Enjoy your haul!

I past through Bath and Body Works last week when I was in Victoria but their stuff is expensive without sale so I didn't buy anything. Good call on placing order online when there's a sale, I need to check out their website.

Hope you're having an awesome long weekend. I'd usually chime in with the "jeally" talk but I have a REALY quiet week with work so I've practically got one myself LOL. I've noticed all the fall talk on FB, nothing about pumpkins yet thankfully (as an Aussie I really don't get the pumpkin-spiced thing)!


Ashley Sue said...

I go crazy over the Fall scents from bath and body works!! I'm still hanging on to my summer candles for another week or two, and then I'll burn my Fall ones! I can't wait though, Fall scents are my favorite. You picked out a lot of goodies, I love the candle holders! And hope exciting that all your house construction is done Kim!

Shirley Tay said...

OMG, I'm in love with these picks, dear! Time to go shopping! xoxo

Wendee Isaacs said...

kim, you got some great stuff. Hope you will be reveiwig them soon.


Cee said...

Ha ha Kim you are so right, it's camel! But whatever you call it, it's a beautiful colour - after years of searching I finally got a camel coat last fall and it's without a doubt one of my favourite things that I own. It goes with everything, from black and white shades to navy, brown and definitely leopard. Sounds like you had a wonderful - and productive! - long weekend :)

Emma Henderson said...

Loving all your fashion buys! Those shades are so pretty for autumn/fall.

Savvy indeed! Kim, you are the queen of online shopping:) I can't blame you though....I love the fall releases that Bath and Body Works does. So many amazing scents and candles. And I love anything camel-coloured (or toffee....hahaha). Your pencil skirt and turtleneck would look so fab together.
And yay for the two rooms being done. Furniture shopping is always fun:D

Lorena said...

Have not been to B&BW in forever.. before I use to buy all of my liquid hand soaps. Then I changed to another brand and totally forgot about them.
I've also been tempted to ask store staff to give me their merchandising pieces - they are soooo cute.

Jalisa G said...

I haven't shopped at Bath & Body works in SO long! I used to always shop there because they're products always smell so good and they have such great deals! I need to remember to get some candles from there. I've been getting mine from HomeGoods these past few years, which is why I've forgotten them. You've snagged some great deals, girl! I love all the toffee colored pieces you got! It's such a great natural to work with and looks so good combined with leopard! I love the idea of it with teal, as well as navy, which I don't believe I've ever tried. I'm not going to lie, I'm shocked you didn't get any makeup, haha! But since you explained why, it makes sense! I can't wait to see your haul on those products. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!

I just pulled out my pumpkin candles yesterday! I need to grab some more for Bath and Body Works. They are the best! I love the tv stands you got! I would love to redecorate my whole house. I feel like it needs a makeover. Too bad I don't have an unlimited budget lol

Pamela RG said...

Bath and Body is one of my favourites. Their candles look and smell fabulous. Enjoy your shopping for Fall.

MAC x Taraji sounds awesome! I totally forgot about Joss & Main but should check them out.
Aww and how cute are the faux cakes and pies?!

Lauren Carter said...

Sales are hard to resist, especially if it's items you have been wanting to buy! It's really hard for me to stay out of Bath & Body Works in the fall. What is it about the fall scents?

Diva Desle said...

Gosh you got 40% off!! That is AMAZING!!! I would go crazy :-D I am itching to smell the pumpkin scents. Hopefully I can go to Qatar before Christmas and get a whiff.
