What I bought at Bath & Body Works // Walt Disney World 2017

We've been home from Florida for a few days now and let me tell you, jet lag and those post Disney blues are two things that I am really battling with at the moment. The struggle is real, I tell ya! Especially as we've all come down with dreadful coughs and colds since coming home too. Ugh!

Our holiday was literally the best. We had the most magical time ever, the weather was perfect and I still can't believe how much we managed to squeeze into our time there. It was just incredible! I'm looking forwards to sharing some photos and memories from our trip but before I even attempt to get stuck into that, let's ease into it with a little haul post! Just like last year, I'm going to kick off my Florida posts with a Bath & Body Works haul! 

This was my second visit to a Bath & Body Works store and after falling in love with the brand last year (how it stayed off my radar until then I'll never know!), it was high on my list of things I wanted to do on this trip. Again, we visited the beautiful store at Orlando International Premium Outlets and I was super thrilled to pick up everything that I had on my list! So let's get started, shall we?! 

First up, candles.... my eternal weakness! I absolutely adore the design of the 3-wick candles and we had the hardest time choosing three to come home with us. After much deliberation, we settled on "Hey, Honey!", "Winter" and "Hot Cocoa & Cream". Honestly, I cannot tell you how good these candles smell! I want to eat them! We've had the honey candle on the go since coming home and the scent fills the house effortlessly. They burn so cleanly and well, don't they look gorgeous?! Even when they aren't lit I just love having them out on display!  

Next we have the PocketBac hand sanitizers. I went a little bit nuts buying these, admittedly. They smell so good and are so handy for dog walking, etc. We do get down them at rapid speed so it was great to stock up on them, especially as they can be quite pricey buying from sellers in the UK (we totally need a Bath & Body Works here!)! I picked up a few to give as stocking filler gifts too as I know a few folk who will definitely love these as much as I do! 

I love the coconut scented ones and I am super excited to try some scents that are new to me such as Iced Gingerbread and French Lavender!

I also picked up a cute french bulldog holder to clip on to my bag which I completely forgot to take a photo of! I plan on getting more of the clip holders next time as I am obsessed with hand sanitizers and like to have them accessible! 

Next, I visited the travel size section and picked up a couple of body lotions and a body cream for taking on holidays. I think Magic in the Air is my favourite scent so far and I am now thoroughly regretting not buying the full size of this product because not only does it smell amazing, it is an incredible moisturiser too! These winter scents are just delicious.... seriously, how good does Winter Candy Apple sound?! 

I also picked up a couple of the shea butter hand creams in the travel size section. These are so good and so moisturising, they leave my hands super soft! Cucumber Melon is so refreshing and instantly transports me to warm summer days.... so good! 

Finally, once again I came home with six of the liquid hand soaps. You might remember I bought these on a whim last year but after trying them out at home, I instantly became hooked. Literally no other hand soap compares! They smell amazing, foam up beautifully and are incredibly moisturising. I pretty much left it to my husband to choose the scents as I couldn't decide but I think he did a smashing job! Coconut Mint Drop sounds so good.... ahh, they all do! I can't wait to try them all out! 

I would love to have purchased more of these but getting them home is quite a challenge. Has anyone else had any success in getting them home OK?! I find that the locked pump lids undo themselves with the pressure on the plane and both times I have opened my case to find leaky bottles. Agh! I pack them in individual ziplock bags and in plastic containers but still, both times I seem to have lost a bit of product! Something I'll have to think of for next time, for sure!
