Johnny's Lotion Purchases!

Lotion! They are definitely my weakness. I REALLY don't need to buy any more lotion, but I always do. These were my latest purchase at Bath & Body Works!

1. Cherry Blossom Body Lotion, $10.50: The scent is described as only being cherry blossoms. Well, I don't know what that's supposed to smell like, but this lotion has a very bright floral scent. It kind of has hints of roses, but it's nothing really heavy. It also has hints of cherries, so kind of like cherries + roses. I would consider this a fall scent because I think most floral scents are fall+winter. However, you can get away with wearing this whenever. Also, this is the redesigned version of BBW's Cherry Blossom. I don't know if they changed the formula/scent or just the packaging, but regardless, this is a nice floral scent.

2. Apricot Vanilla, $10.50: This scent was originally part of the Summer Vanillas Collection, but they went on to include it into the Signature Collection. This scent is described as a blend of apricots and vanilla. I can definitely smell the vanilla, and although I don't know what apricot smells like, I can definitely smell something else. The scent is really sugary/sweet, almost like candy. That being said, I LOVE sugary/sweet/candy scents, and this scent is one of my favorites from BBW. Obviously, this is a summer scent, but I've been wearing it lately.

3. Fiji Passionfruit, $10.50: This was one of the three Island Escapes scents for Spring 2011. This scent is described as a blend of passionfruit, mandarin orange, apricot nectar and lime zest. This is a really odd scent to me. I can smell hints of the orange and passionfruit, but it's kind of a heavy/dark scent. It also has a really weird sour-esque hint to it. Overall, It's not something I prefer and the whole scent is just really odd to me. I haven't worn it yet, so maybe it smells different once applied. Who knows?

4. Bali Mango, $10.50: This was another one of the Island Escapes scent. This scent is describes as a blend of mango, sugar cane, pink passionflower and nectarine. This scent is much better than the Fiji one. You can really smell the mangoes and nectarine. It's a nice fresh fruity smell for spring. It's not really one of my top, but it definitely is worth checking out if you like fruity/mango scents. 

If you plan on going to BBW any time soon, make sure you check online for coupons. They ALWAYS have coupons or some kind of sale going on in their store. Make sure you do your research to get the most bang for your buck! I also have tons of other lotions, so tell me if you want me to review those.

What are your favorite scents?

Johnny's Magazine Purchases!

I've recently been on a magazine spree because I have nothing better to do with my life the read about famous people. All of these were my first time buying and reading them, so I'll give you my opinions.

1. V, Spring Preview 2011, Issue 69, $6.50: This was the first magazine I picked up and I was drawn to it because of Nicki Minaj (my love). I really had no idea what V was about, but I soon figured it was a fashion magazine. This issue talked about the hottest people/places/things we should know about for 2011. I loved the magazine because of all the fashion ads and even though the only main article was about the hottest things, it was still really interesting and fun to read. It is quite pricey, but it's worth it if you're really interested in fashion.

2. Vanity Fair, February 2011, Issue 606, $4.99: I've heard about Vanity Fair, but I never really knew what they talked about. To be honest, I only picked this up because of Justin Bieber (my other love). I thought this magazine was entertainment-oriented, but it talks about many other things like current events and politics. Don't get me wrong, I like to be in the know about things happening in the world, but this magazine just seemed really boring to me. The only fun bits were the articles about Justin and the fashion ads.

3. Vogue, February 2011, $3.99: I picked this up yesterday and I was excited to start reading. I admit the only reason I got it is because Lady Gaga (my third love) is going to be on the cover for March and I wanted to get a taste of what the magazine is like. Vogue is also a fashion magazine and I admit I enjoy reading it. My only problem is that the first half of the magazine is basically fashion ads, many I've already seen from the other magazines. However, there are many articles later on and I thought there was a lot of entertaining/informative articles to read for only being $4. Definitely worth buying.

What are your favorite magazines?

We recently ordered some things from Bath & Body Works and we wanted to share it with you guys!

The items came in this cardboard box. It was pretty big, but that's because we bought a lot of stuff.

When I opened it, it had this stuffing inside, which protected the items and made sure they didn't break or spill everywhere.

When I took the stuffing out, it had a bunch of coupons inside, which I'll share with you guys!

Bottom (Hatel): Berry Vanilla, PS I Love You, Dark Kiss, Vanilla Bean Noel, Orange Sapphire

How much did it cost?
The total was $56.71, so we each paid $28.36
Bath & Body had a special buy 3, get 2 free, so we ended up getting 2 free lotions each.
We also used a coupon to get $10 off if we bought $30 and since we had $50 worth, we got free shipping!
Overall, we saved $57.29 or $28.65 each, which is how much we paid!

Top 5 "Hatel" Things

I guess since Johnny made this post, I thought I would follow in his footsteps. Plus, it's a good way to start off a blog! Kudos to Johnny! With that being said, here are my top 5 things that I love!
1. Drenched in PINK Lotion and body mist. 
 I absolutely LOVE this stuff. I bought some a few weeks ago and fell in love. Not only does this lotion smell amazing, it's very moisturizing! PINK sells about five or six different scents accompanied with body mists. Usually, they have deals going on where you can buy 2 for $22 or 3 for $30! I definitely recommend this body lotion and mist to anyone looking for a new scent/lotion!

2. Nail Polish!
For anyone who is ever around me knows I absolutely LOVE nail polish! I don't think you can ever have enough nail polish.... maybe that's because I own a whole container full, but I just can't help it. This OPI nail color in 'Dim Sum Plum' is one of my all time favorites. This polish is a deep plum but not purple color, perfect for fall! It's from the Hong Kong collection and I'm pretty sure you can still find this in beauty stores that sell OPI. I think about a year ago I started collecting them and eventually my collection just tripled in size!! Either way, nail polishes are amazing and I don't think I'll ever have enough.

3. Scarves! 
I adore scarves! I don't think I even owned a scarf until I started college. I think walking around in the cold pretty much gave me an excuse to buy one. Either way, I love when winter comes because it gives me an excuse to whip out my bag full of scarves. I love pairing a scarf with a basic tee or coat because you don't want to over-do it. Pair a scarf with a basic tee/ tank(depending on the weather) and some cute earrings and viola! You have your outfit for the day. Scarves are all various prices and some can be pretty expensive, but if you wait around for the store to have a sale, you can easily buy a scarf for $3( I've bought several scarves from American Eagle, who has some adorable scarves every year, for less than five dollars when they had a huge sale!). Oh yeah, circle scarves are definitely one of my new favorite types of scarves, so next time you're out looking for a new scarf, try a circle scarf!!

4. Necklaces and Rings
 Necklaces and Rings definitely add a little pop to any outfit. The necklace pictured here is so cute! Not to mention both items are less than 10 dollars at F21 online! I've fell in love with double/connecting rings recently. I'm not sure how many people have actually worn them, but  they're all really cute and different from a regular one-fingered ring. Forever 21 sells a variety of these connector rings, which are usually under 10 dollars.... that's a pretty sweet deal if you ask me! I love this necklace and totally plan on buying it eventually. The little asian girl is cute and there's a little fan connected to the necklace as well even though you can't see it. You can totally pair any of these accessories to a simple outfit to add a little pop to a day outfit. If you're looking for cute, inexpensive jewelry, check out forever 21!! Alot of their jewelry is less than 10 dollars and obviously cute!

5. Cross-body bags
 Cross-body bags definitely come in handy all the time. These bags come in handy all the time for me! I find it easier to just put this across my body instead of carrying a heavy purse on my shoulder. The bag pictured is from American Eagle and is $24.50. I have this bag and same color( light pink/ rose). It's pretty simple and the leather material on it is very smooth. Cross-body bags are convenient when you go out and don't need a lot of things. Usually if you go out you just need your phone, keys, lipgloss and a wallet, so there's no point in carrying a huge purse around where you may end up losing/misplacing it!  This bag comes in 4 additional colors and has a lot of space inside for all your stuff!!

Top 5 "Johnny" Things!

Johnny here! To start things off, I'm going to post the top 5 things that makes me, well, me!

1. Lip Balm!

Lip balms have always been my #1 obsession. I started collecting them ever since I was in middle school. And let's be honest, you can't really have too much because you never know when you will need it and it runs out! My top lip balm right now is the eos lip balm. One costs around $3.50, but trust me when I say they last forever! Definitely worth the money and it smells great!

2. Hoodies!

Hoodies are great because you can just slip them on whenever you just don't feel like taking the time to dress up. There's also countless different variations and styles that you can wear. My current obsession is college hoodies because I'm going off to college next year and I definitely want to represent whatever college I go to.

3. Bath & Body Works Hand Sanitizer!

This is such a cute and clever creation. Basically, you hook the hand sanitizer holder on your keychains/purse/whatever and stick a hand sanitizer bottle in it. You can never be too sure these days with all those diseases running around and the holders come in tons of different designs and colors. Not to mention all the different scents of hand sanitizer. I think the holder is $1 and the hand sanitizer is $1.50. This is something everyone should have!

4. Key Chains!

Key chains are basically an accessory that shows off your personality and enhances your appearance. And who doesn't love having cute key chains? Of course, you have to watch out that you don't have a bunch all at once. I got the one in the picture from Old Navy a while back, but I'm sure you could pretty much find it anywhere since it's a popular design.

5. Socks!

I love wacky and crazy socks. They are a basic component of an outfit, but they don't have to be boring! I always wear bright and colorful socks and people always complement me on them. Usually, I get the socks that are on sale because I never go shopping with the intent of getting a particular pair. I have the red pair in the picture and I believe I got it for $2 or so.

Hope you enjoyed this! What are some things that make you, you? :)
