The Body Shop Bath Lilies and Bath & Body Works Wallflower Refill Bulbs

Image
I love after Christmas sales. Of course, I wait wayafter Christmas to purchase my favorite items from The Body Shop and Bath & Body Works. I love bath mesh sponges and the bath lilies from The Body Shop are no exception! They were on sale for $1 each so I bought six. The wallflower refill bulbs from Bath & Body Works are my favorite and smell great too! I make sure to stock up on them whenever they go on sale. I purchased four single refill bulbs in the Energy lemon zest scent for $2 each. I also like the antibacterial foaming hand soaps from Bath & Body Works but I didn't buy any this time around. Of course, there's always next time!

Priceless!


I purchased a beautiful Kenneth Cole bracelet from RueLaLaand got a great price for it. I'm not much of a jewelry gal but I really need to make an exception because I have my Mother's lovely CZ bangle that I can wear along with the KC bracelet. I'm also inspired by Blair Eadie and her wonderful collection of bracelets, jewelry, and impeccable fashion sense on her Atlantic-Pacific blog and the wonderful Alison Gary of Wardrobe Oxygen. When you're feeling uninspired, put on some sparkle and the inspiration just might come to you!

Checked out the eastside of the Las Vegas strip as well asBally's,Paris,Planet Hollywood,Bellagio,Palms,Rio, andGold Coast. Quite an adventure! I wish I did more! In the next couple of days, I will be posting the best of the photos. I hope that all had a very happy New Year's Day!
