Bath and Body Works Haul Summer 2016

Hello Divas!
It sure has been a long time since I have posted and I hope you all did not  forget about me. As always it has been very hectic here with school so I have just been really busy.

I wanted to take a few minutes to bring you my Bath and Body Works haul for the Summer 2016 Semi Annual Sale.

I only got a few items because I do have a stash of things that I need to get through. My main reason for going to the sale was to get the Indigo Sky candle as I think it is either being retired (I hope not) or it was a seasonal scent and they are changing it out.

This is my favorite candle of all time from Bath and Body Works and I just love how it smells a little like a man's cologne, without being too manly or overpowering. As you can see I got four of those because they are no longer available online. There were only six in the store that went to and I wanted to get all six because I love them so much. I decided to get only four because I wanted to leave for other people and I also wanted to pick up some other things.

I also got the  Sundrenched Vineyard which really does smell like a full bodied, juicy wine.

I think this is a great summer burn for me because it just smells happy and bright. I do not follow the seasonal recommendations when burning my candles and I will just burn whatever makes me happy.

In fact, I frequently burn the 'Christmas' scents all year round because I love the smell of apples and cinnamon!

I picked up three shower gels and one foaming hand soap to add to my collection.
The first shower gel I got was the Be Joyful scent.

I had smelled this in the lotion since one of my coworkers had it on her desk in February. I fell in love but I waited until it went on sale to buy one. The soaps and lotions normally retail for $12.50 each but ranged from $3.13 to $3.75 during the sale.

The next shower gel I got was the Beautiful Day scent.

I originally smelled this in the lotion and did not like it. I later smelled the shower gel and fell in love. This is a fresh and light scent but still full of yummy goodness. I like very sweet and fruity scents in the shower as I feel they wake you up and get you ready for the day.

The final shower gel I got was the Country Apple scent which is one of their throwback scents.

I love apple scented items so this was a great buy for me and I cannot wait to use it. The throwback scents are from early on in the past and I think I remember getting this as a college freshman!

The hand soap that I got was the Sun Ripened Raspberry, which is another throwback scent to the earlier days.

I think this smells very juicy and is something that makes me enjoy washing my hands.The last time I got a hand soap it smelled like pineapples and it made handwashing seem like a fun event and not a chore to quickly get done. I wanted something that brought a similar feeling so this was a great fit for what I wanted.

Did you get anything in the semi annual sale? Let me know what your favorite scents and items are!!!
