Some of the Bath & Body Works Fall 2017 Collection arrived today and yes, our beloved Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte has returned for yet another year! There are some new scents as well such as Champagne Apple & Honey, Salted Caramel Apricot, and Autumn Blooms. I guess that means I'm off my Bath & Body Works ban! This is only an initial release of the Fall 2017 Collection as they'll be plenty more as we head into September, October, and November because you know that Bath & Body Works always goes full force ahead for autumn!
One of the most interesting releases in the Fall 2017 collection is the introduction of Whipped Body Butter! Please correct me if I'm wrong but I haven't seen whipped body butter from Bath & Body Works before or perhaps I simply wasn't paying attention? None the less I'm happy to see it as I prefer the texture of whipped body cream! And by the way, body washes are now housed in a tube versus a squeeze bottle! But one of the most important elephants in the room is the new sizes of the products and the prices. Body Wash is typically 10 oz in size and $12.50 in price where as the Fall releases are 8 oz each and $14.50. The Fragrance Mists are a bit smaller too at 6 oz for $13.50 versus 8 oz for the standard scents at $14. I don't think Bath & Body Works plans to permanently change their Fragrance Mist size, this might just be exclusive for this season release. I do believe the 6 oz size might disappoint fans of scents like Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte as you're losing out at nearly 2 oz of product and since it only comes around once a year. I hope this doesn't mean other seasonal, limited-edition will also be downsized in the future. Here's the initial Fall line up: [list] [*]Champagne Apple & Honey (Pink Lady Apple, Sparkling Champagne & Jasmine Honey) [*]Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte (Pumpkin Latte, Toasted Marshmallow & Creamy Sandalwood) [*]Spiced Pumpkin Cider (Heirloom Pumpkin, Royal Cinnamon & Apple Cider) [*]Salted Caramel Apricot (Buttery Caramel, Sea Salt & Apricot Brandy) [*]Bright Autumn Blooms (Warm Marigold Petals, Sparkling Bergamot & Cedar Leaf) [/list] I haven't had the pleasure of seeing the Bath & Body Works Fall 2017 Collection in stores yet although, White Barn is full speed ahead with Fall everything! But I imagine by this weekend we will indeed see the latest released in stores. If you prefer to shop online you can use code GOODIES and take 25% off your order!
Yesterday, Sephora had an app exclusive release of the new Taste Beauty Glamspin which caused all sorts of outrage in the review section. You might recall I jokingly dissed the last Taste Beauty release which was the Felicia the Flamingo Lip Balm. Some of you like me felt like these types of kitsch lip balms don't exactly fit in at Sephora where as others thought the lip balm was adorable and even purchased it. Honestly, I grew up on lip balms like this. They might have even been a gateway drug of sorts into the world of makeup. I had dozens of different lip balms as a child and to this day I still love cutesy lip balms. But Taste Beauty, well, it's a little too immature for me. The recent release of the new Glamspin is $10 bucks and it features three scented lipglosses in strawberry, peach, and grape. It's shaped like the popular spinners that we are seeing on the market at the moment. Now, all is well and good with the release but yesterday a lot of users started taking to the review field to express their dislike of this release. Comments about ridiculous the release was started popping up but what really started to outrage Sephora users was the fact that Sephora allegedly started to deleted these so-called negative reviews.
It's hard to say if Sephora was right or wrong in this situation but I'm leaning towards taking their side. Why? Ok, so I am in agreement this is kind of dumb release but the review field is there for a reason and it's not to rant about a product you haven't yet tried. It's one of my biggest pet peeves when someone puts a five star rating on something that literally just popped up on Sephora with a comment like, I LOVE THIS! Can't wait to get it! That's not only not helpful but also an abuse of the review form. The point of the review space is to leave a comment in it after you've tried the product not to just express how you can't wait to try something.
Now, many times I've heard Sephora users express how they leave a poor review only to have it disappear later. Allegedly, Sephora has deleted poor reviews from their site according to some people. I personally never left a review on Sephora's site so, I can't say if this is true or not. But yesterday, people were expressing complete outrage that some of their negative comments, note I call them comments not reviews, from the Taste Beauty Glamspin listing. I'm looking at the listing in the app this morning and a lot of the comments are still there. So, if Sephora really did delete comments, I'm not seeing it because the review score at the moment is pretty darn low. How do you feel about this situation? How do you feel about the Taste Beauty Glamspin? Do share

July and August are much anticipated months in Toronto. The summer season is short- optimizing your health can help you make the most our our short but ever so sweet summer. Here are the top 5tips from naturopathic doctors in Torontoto help you stay on your A-game. 1. Continue to supplement with vitamin D You are probably thinking that because the sun is out longer, you are getting more vitamin D. However, how much vitamin D your body synthesizes from the sun depends on a few factors: how much time is spent out side and at what time of day, the amount of skin exposed to the sun and the colour of your skin. In order to get a good dose of vitamin D from the sun you need to be outside, in minimal clothing (bathing suit), when the sun is high in the sky. You are synthesizing vitamin D in your skin if your shadow cast by the sun is shorter than your height. If you have darker skin, you require more time in the sun to get the same amount of vitamin D as someone with lighter skin. 2. Get lot's of vitamin N You've never heard of vitamin N? It's vitamin nature! Summer is a great time to get outside. Time spent in natural settings: [list] [*]Improves mental health. [*]Provides an opportunity for cognitive rejuvenation. [*]Reduces blood pressure. [*]Reduces cortisol our stress hormone. [*]Increases our parasympathetic tone- the rest and restore part of our nervous system. [/list] 3. Hydrate with water We inherently need more water in the summer. Our bodies lose more water in the warmer months- we sweat more, and for some, consumption increases of diuretics like iced coffee and alcohol (patio season!). Aim to drink 2-3 litres of water daily with these tips: [list] [*]Start each morning with a big glass of water (option to add lemon). [*]For every cup of coffee or alcoholic drink have one big glass of water. [/list]
4. Take advantage of the local harvest Local produce is in abundance during the summer months. Local food tastes better and it's better for you and the environment. Bite into summer by purchasing local food at: [list] [*]Farmer's markets. [*]Basket programs. [*]Grocery stores. [*]Farm stands outside the city. [/list] 5. Take it easy With all of the additional daylight hours summer brings, schedules can fill up as we make the most of our short summer. It's important to open up some time to relax and reset. After a busy weekend or travel make time to take it easy by: [list] [*]Working from home (if possible). [*]Plan an additional day off as a home reset day. [*]Saying no when necessary. [/list]
