US Bath & Body Works New Year Shower Gel Haul

These are the Shower Gels I purchased on New Year’s (here).

I’d fallen in love with Little Black Party Dress (so sexy!) and Snowy Morning (so fresh!) and Coconut Lime Breeze (Skittles!) all purchased in My 2nd U.S. B&BW Haul (here) and definitely needed to repurchase them not only as Shower Gels, but also as Body Lotions and Fragrance Mists!

Sadly, once the prices got slashed, they went out of stock pretty quick. I’m sooo happy I managed to get a back-up of Little Black Party Dress and Coconut Lime Breeze as Shower Gels though ^_^

The rest were all new to me, granted I had seen Under Water Oasis in our local stores back in Summer.

Apple Blossom and Black Amethyst and Night Blooming Jasmine were clearly florals. Honestly, I thought they were all new because the U.S. B&BW tend to roll out the Spring/Summer Collections 2-4 months in advance, but apparently the latter two were “retired fragrances” that had been brought back for the semi-annual sale.

Rose Water Meringue and Pink Velvet Cupcake appeared to be gourmands from more recent collections, in addition to Christmas Cookies.

Mineral (Men’s Collection) and Under Water Oasis were some nice freshies, to round everything out.

They all arrived sealed ♥

DevaCurl and Hair Loss (Warning Graphic Pictures)

I was on a full on Hair Care kick, around June of last year and purchased a ton of hair stuff online from Nordstrom (haulage here) including products from the brand DevaCurl which was “Curly Girl Method Approved”!

Shortly after, as if on cue, there was a scandal and a following lawsuit involving the brand. Apparently, DevaCurl products (allegedly) caused hair loss and hair damage and other hair-related issues.

Thankfully, I hadn’t gotten around to using any of the travel-sized products in the DevaCurl Super Curly Curls On The Go Kit.

Unfortunately though, I did get around to using the DevaCurl Wave Maker Touchable Texture Whip.

MIA White Joplyn Wedge Sandals

These are the imfamous MIA Joplyn Wedge Sandals that I keep harping on about.

I have a deep, deep, deeeeep love for a lot of my shoes, be they flats or heels or even boots, but these babies were the ones that got away (literally lol they were stolen).

I purchased them online in 2008 for I wanna’ say $40 or $50 (but used a $10 off coupon code, according to my order history).

Favorite Flats

Jeffrey Campbell Clear Puffer Sandals
Multi-Color Bandage Wrap Sandals (“Lookbook” here)

Lastly, here are my most loved and favorite Flats! If I could, I’d repurchase backups in the same color and in different colors… and even get backups of the backups! Would that I could… Alas, one was purchased online and is no longer being made while the other was purchased far far away in Thailand.

The Circle

The Circle is an awesome, awesome, awesome British Reality TV Show! Basically, the premise is anyone can be anyone on social media! Players enter a building and live in that building, isolated from each other (on separate floors even) and can only communicate via social media. Someone gets voted out (the least popular person) and the last one left standing, wins the cash prize.

Initially, I thought it sounded boring and quite frankly, dumb because unlike my beloved show Big Brother, they weren’t going to be interacting with each other. I decided to give it a chance anyway, and man-oh-man was I wrong! I enjoyed it sooo much that I zipped through the entire season!

I was hooked the moment Freddie walked into the building! Watching a very, very gay man pretend to be straight on social media was hilarious! He’d text something nice to one of the girls and turn to the camera and say something catty about her! He’d text something to the guys, about going to go make a protein shake and turn to the camera and say he’s never ever had a protein shake in his life! Also, the way he talked about girls was hyper-sexual, to the point that nobody even suspected he was remotely gay. Honestly, he was my absolute favorite contestant in Season 1!
