Bath & Body Works, Sephora & More!

Hey guys :)

School has started for a little over a week now, and with all things settled, I decided to run to the mall to stock up on some wallflowers since I recently ran out :(
In case you didn't know, wallflowers are these things by bath & body works which you plug into the socket and they make your room smell so so wonderful & i love them to bits.

When I got to bath & body works, I also saw that their candles were 50% off and I also picked up 2 of them...and I can't even begin to tell you how amazing they smell!

Kitchen Spice Candle -- my new favorite scent!!

Sticky Toffee Pudding Candle; smells good enough to eat

Right: Creamy Pumpkin

I also made a stop at Sephora and picked up some of Josie Maran's argan oil (I heard this stuff is supposed to be AMAZING).
It can be used in sooo many ways:
- daily moisturizer
- treating split ends
- condition cuticles
- body moisturizer
- bath oil

I also picked up the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in "exposed".  It retails for $25 on the Sephora website.
So many Youtubers have been raving about this product, which made me want to try it out as well.
The color is like a mixture of pink and brown, its soo natrual & perfect for adding a tint of color to the face without being too obvious.
The blush is also really pigmented, which is always a bonus.

On a side note, Tarte has also recently added 4 new colors to this line, but they all have shimmer in them.  Personally, I prefer blushes which are matte (I find them easier to work with)
Nonetheless, I will link the Sephora page below if you guys want to check it out:

LAST BUT NOT LEAST, I also recently went to the drugstore and came across the Revlon Lip Butters that I have also heard so much about on Youtube.  I picked up 3 colors to try out as well.
Left to Right: Cupcake, Sugar Frosting & Cherry Tart

I must say, these are very creamy and opaque given that they are only supposed to be lip butters!  They are also non expensive and very hydrating :)
However, my lips are pretty pigmented...and so the two colors on the left don't really show up on my lips (only Cherry Tart does).
But for those who don't have as pigmented lips, I'm sure this will be a great investment.

I know I included a lot of stuff in this post, but I still hope you guys enjoyed it!



  1. Ahh I don't think I could have a sticky toffee pudding candle, the smell would make me so hungry for some cake! I bet it smells beautiful though :)

  2. Really like those lipstick colours :)
    I'm following you, if you want follow me too (: (only if you really like my blog!)
