Absolutely random but I thought I’d share a haul my sweet cousins brought for me from the USA recently.
I sent them to Bath and Body Works for a few pocket bacs and candles, and they came back with some great goodies for me! More than I asked for in fact!
Oh, the Sonia Kashuk – I have always liked the look of her brand and this neutral II palette has 12 shades for around $19. Looking at it, it’s a decent enough palette but they are all shimmers. There is an all matte palette too, but why couldn’t you mix it up a bit for us Sonia!?
The candles quite briefly –
Marshmallow Fireside – LOVELY. Sweet vanilla and a burnt edge. Love it because I do love the sweet vanilla like scents for the home since it is comforting and easy to burn. These jars are lovely too and I love the lid – mine always get dusty.
Autumn – A fresher scent, like level and a woody grassy touch. More difficult to describe but still very nice to burn in the house.
Vineyard – Fruity, grape-cherry type scent.
Napa Valley Sunset – Smells like mango and oranges to me
Lavender Vanilla – self explanitory!
Now, don’t get me wrong these candles aren’t Jo Malone. They aren’t complex and they take a while to get the scent to spread but for the price, they are great!
I always have anti bacterial on me because you know, I have kids,little germ spreaders they are. There’s a mixture of floral and fruity here my favourite being Crisp Apples which smells just like, crisp apples.
Pocket Bacs if you have never used them are VERY scented. Whenever I use one someone asked me if I sprayed perfume!!! It is STRONG therefore not to everyones taste. The kids use them sometimes but I am conscious of my poor little boy smelling like a raspberry pie or something! Anyway…this lot should keep me going for a while!
