Fun Find At Target!

Just wanted to pop in and share my fun find today! I was browsing my local Target for a nice tray to place my perfumes in on top of my new dresser and stumbled across these cuties!

Sadly, I didn't find the kind of tray I wanted for my perfumes but I was also in the market for some nice candles. I wanted some affordable, foody scented, cute looking ones and these fit the bill. I love the little ramekins they're in because they remind me of my favorite dessert - creme brulee! It's nice that they small so they don't overwhelm my room and they were on sale for $6.98. They smelled so yummy that I had to pick up the last two on the shelves. They add such a nice cozy touch to my room too!

So have you guys stumbled across any goodies lately? Share in the comments because I'd love to hear about it!

Review: The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter

Hello Lovelies!

Today I'm sharing a review on The Body Shop's Brazil Nut body butter. I remember my first experience with the famous body butters from TBS being horrible! Years ago, I purchased the Mango scent and it smelled delicious but when I tried it out, it felt like I was rubbing Vaseline all over my body. Gross. After that first encounter, I was too horrified to try any of the other body butters they in their line. Being a beauty noob at the time, I never researched my beauty products and hardly knew a thing about make up but now things are different!

Last week, TBS was having a promotion to get 50% off your online order if you purchased the "Bag for Life" tote at $5. With this in mind, I decided to give the body butters another go but this time with a handful of research under my belt. It turns out that the consistencies and textures of each body butter differs depending on the scent. Some body butters will leave more of a thick and greasy feel on your skin while others will absorb quickly and make your skin feel silky smooth! To find out which one is for you just takes a little bit of research. After a few reviews and recommendations, I settled on the 6.9 oz. tub of Brazil Nut and boy am I happy with my purchase.

I'm not a huge fan of the scents TBS offers but I found out that this particular one has a very faint, soft scent. The little bit of fragrance that I can smell from it is sweet and creamy which is definitely my preference in body products! This body butter absorbs very quickly (I apply it all over after I shower) and doesn't feel like it leaves a film on my skin. The consistency is extremely rich and thick so I feel super luxurious when I'm it smoothing on!

The only think I would change with this body butter is the packaging. I like the cute tub but I think it would be a lot more sanitary if it could be in a squeeze tube with a wide nozzle to expel the product. Other than that, I'm in LOVE and I'm definitely looking to try out more scents!
