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.

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?
