Bath and Body Works Haul / Fall 2018 // Blogtober Day #3

Hey everyone!

I’ve done it again…ought way too much Bath and Body Works! I know, I know it’s a problem. I promise that this is not sponsored. It would be fantastic if they wanted to sponsor me with how much I buy their products but alas no luck. Since fall as rolled around, I needed to get my hands on their new stuff. I had over 2000$ of their stuff in my cart online. I decided to go in-store and check it out in person. I’m a bit picky when it comes to scents during this time because I hate vanilla! Vanilla always seems to be a fall scent that is overused. I hate vanilla so much I think I have a trauma associated with it or something.

Unfourtantly, I was a bit disappointed in the selection at my local Bath and Body Works. They didn’t have everything on the website. Also, most of the scents were vanilla based, yuck! It didn’t help I had a bad cold and couldn’t smell very well. The employees, though I know it’s their job, but they were extremely pushy. I hate more than anything in the world when employees try to put products on you. I don’t want it! I have sensitive skin. Though I never get reactions from their products I’d rather be the one that makes the decision on what goes on my skin. It’s as if they have no concept of allergies.

Anyways, enough with that and on to the haul. I only picked up 5 things and it cost me like 80$! I got the whole pumpkin picking collection so the cream, shower gel and perfume. I also got the pumpkin enzyme gel moisturizer and the thousand years candle.

The pumpkin picking collection smells so good. It was the only one that smelt the least of vanilla or something I already had. I really wanted something that smelt of pumpkin. I love pumpkin and feel it is super fall. I believe I’ve mentioned this before in my Zoella Beauty 2018 Christmas Collection video, I associate different scents for different seasons. This collection is perfect for the fall time.

The pumpkin enzyme gel moisturizer is the best thing I’ve ever put on my skin. It just feels so good and makes my skin feel so soft. It’s even better than their usual creams. It kinda has a weird look to it that makes you think it’s not a lotion but it is. At first, I was scared it would be sticky because it looks exactly like caramel. It seeps right into the skin hydrating immediately. A lot of people say that it smells of sweet pumpkin but I feel like it smells more of apples and pumpkins.

I own the thousand years perfume and I have adored it for a very long time. It used to be my go to before I got Rose, which has been mentioned in like 5 monthly favourites. When my boyfriend picked up the candle and said he liked it, I knew I had to get it. It smells incredible and just warms up the whole room. I hope that the candle stays around because it is quickly becoming one of my favourites.

So this was my haul. Have you guys picked up any of the new Bath and Body Works products? If so which ones are your favourite? If not did you want to check them out? Let me know, I would love to hear from you guys.

400$ Forever 21 Haul!!

Hey everyone!

If you read my last post then this is for you. If you did then I tried to post a try on haul from the Labor Day weekend and I just couldn’t get myself to do it. I just felt too insecure. As much as I didn’t want to post myself due to my own insecurities, I still wanted to share with you guys what I got. It would be a waste almost if I didn’t.

So I went a little crazy during the Labor Day weekend. Forever 21 had a 50% sale on all sale items making everything dirt cheap. I spent like 400$ for both me and my boyfriend.

I heard a lot of horror stories of Forever 21’s customer service so when I saw there was a shipping error I got myself ready for a fight. To my surprise, the person I talked to was so sweet and fixed everything no problem. The last time I bought from Forever 21 I got my stuff in 2 days. There is a warehouse 20 minutes from me. This time it took a bit longer. I could be because of how many items I bought or of the high demand but it took 7 or 8 days. That is pretty much the time they advertise when you choose free shipping which is 5 to 7 days.

Also, another thing I wanted to mention is that I am on average a size 12-14. At Forever 21 their size 12 is more like an 8 or 10. It’s super weird because I  am too big for the “regular” or “average” sizes but too small for their “plus sizes”. They have a whole size missing. So I bought a lot of things in an ex-large or other bigger sizes than what I usually am. It’s funny because as much as I couldn’t post my try on haul I have no problem with the sizes of the clothes. To me, it’s just a number that means nothing and changes wherever you shop.

So anyways enough blabbing. Here is everything I bought!

I also got a couple of other little things but they were put away because they don’t fit. They’re like a size too small so I just put it away for when I get back down to my normal weight and stop eating McDonalds haha.

I hope you liked everything I got. I am hoping to make it up to you guys by doing a lookbook soon for fall. I will try and feature some of these items in the haul. I also tried to link everything I bought if you’re interested in checking them out!

I will see you guys on Monday!

My Own Insecurities Caused My Try On Haul to Fail!

Hey everyone!

I know I haven’t been as active on my blog and YouTube this week like usual. It’s because I have a problem. A body confidence problem. I filmed a whole video and just couldn’t find myself to edit it. I just didn’t like how my body looked in the try on haul I was filming.

I’ve always been a confident person but when it comes to my weight I have more of a problem. I’m not fat by any means. I don’t hate my body either but I know when I need to lose weight. When I’ve been eating a lot of junk I can see and feel a difference in my body. I just don’t feel as good about myself as I would when I feel healthy and have been eating good.

So, I have a whole try on haul that I won’t be posting on my channel. I thought about posting it just because it could all be in my head. I decided not to because I just don’t want to put that on my channel and blog. I want to share with you guys someone who is healthy and I am not healthy right now.

I will still make a blog post about my haul but I will be taking new photos and it will go up next week. I just wanted to talk to talk to you guys about confidence and weight loss and talking about our bodies.

I have insecurities. I know that it’s probably more in my head than anything else but it eats me alive. I just can’t find the confidence to say “this is me” and “deal with it”. I know I don’t look healthy. Not to say anything against plus size woman and men or anyone with any body type. This is more about me and my mental state. I find that I am harsher on my body when I know I haven’t eaten well or been working out.

As a blogger especially a lifestyle blogger who talks about clothes and life and makeup and whatever it is, I have to show myself. I have a hard time showing myself when I don’t feel beautiful. It’s something I struggle with. I can’t image people who have immense followings who always have to show up do it. Are these people confident in their bodies and how they look or do they just get over it and move on?

I am hoping one day to figure it out and be able to see myself in a better light when I do gain weight. I don’t believe that we should always be obsessed with our weight. I don’t want my life to revolve around how I look and the number on the scale.

Do any other bloggers feel down about themselves sometimes and not want to post online? In a world that is so preoccupied with followers and likes it really is hard to put yourself out there to be scrutinized.

What do you guys think? How do you guys feel about insecurity and the online world?

Christmas Body Products Haul – Blogmas Day #1

Who’s excited? I’m excited! It’s the holiday season! (the holiday season) I had too haha. I thought the best way to kick off the cold, snowy, dreary yet happiest time of the year would be with a haul. I went overboard. I have a problem. I also had a gift card. So, I bought my body weight in Christmas themed bath products. I know…
