Bath & Body Works Fall Finds & Pumpkin Preview Tomorrow!?

Hey everyone!

Today has kind of sucked for most of us, right? We all thought that the Pumpkin Preview was happening today! As it turns out, it was unfortuantley cancelled. However, we can look forward to August 5th where we should start seeing more FALL newness! I guess we can wait another week!?

Anyways, even though this event was cancelled, folks were still posting Fall/Halloween finds on the BBW Sista's page. With that being said, that means some of us were able to find things today which is great for all those who could but for those of us who couldn't ... we are a bit upset. I mean all this "hype" for quite awhile and then we finally make it to July 29th and BOOM - N o t h i n g . . . I'm sure a bunch of us had lists made of things we wanted to purchase today. I know I did. ;)

My store let me know this morning they would not be having the Pumpkin Preview. Then I read it's been cancelled and then I see folks posting goodies that they were able to get. Like I said, I'm upset. But I sucked it up (LOL) and went on my way to my local BBW hoping that maybe I'd find something. Well, there was no fall newness. No new table set up. I asked the SA what the deal was? She confirmed that the event was supposed to happen, that they were informed of it but then nothing. They heard nothing from the "boss" and were never given the go ahead. Plus, they didn't receive all the products that would have been supposed to be put out today. She said they had some things in the back but they were not ringing up. She said if they override it when it's not ringing up then their store will get flagged. So in other words, they know nothing. They get told nothing. They are in the dark (or at least my store is) just like I am OR they are at least told to make us think they are in the dark. *Rolls eyes*

I started looking around. I spot some new fall PocketBacs! The SA said those were ringing up but that the new Fresh Picked ones she had weren't so they went ahead and put these Pumpkin ones out. I got Pumpkin Caramel Latte, Pumpkin Cupcake, and Creamy Pumpkin. I look on the candle wall - which is bare by the way - because Fall candles are supposed to be there. But on the wall, I spot a Pumpkin holder, an Owl holder, and an Owl sleeve. The SA said the Pumpkin holder is for the mini candles or it can hold a soap. I thought it was cute so I purchased two. The owl holds the mini candle as well but I think you could squeeze a 4 oz candle in there. The candle sleeve is for the large candles obviously but it's soooo cute! Not only is there owls on it BUT it also has some green color on there for the leaves. TOO CUTE!

Lastly, the Sweet Peony Dream and Sexy Dahlia Rush previews. These were 2 for $12. SPD is a citrusy floral scent. I smell more citrus than floral. It's alright but nothing to die for. The SDR smells like Sparkling Blackberry Woods which was available at Christmas time last year. SDR is more vanilla though than SBW was. I like this one best of the fragrances. But are either super special? Nope.

Here are pics of my purchases! Enjoy! Hoping you find fall newness! :)

HUGE UPDATE: SOOOO FUNNY! AS I FINISHED THIS POST, MY PHONE RANG. IT WAS THE GIRL I'D TALKED TO AT BBW EARLIER. SHE INFORMED ME SHE HAD JUST RECEIVED AN EMAIL TO PUT OUT THE FALL STUFF FOR THE PUMPKIN PREVIEW TONIGHT. SOOOO THAT MEANS PUMPKIN PREVIEW TOMORROW! I DON'T KNOW IF THIS WILL APPLY TO ALL STORES OBVIOUSLY BUT THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD! :)

  1. I have to lol now and share this with you. Arielle posted her sweet and sexy bottles too and I looked at them and then yours and thought. ..... Um. Why would they put a snow globe at the top ? Glasses now on I see it is a reflection of both of you taking the pics. I can't stop giggling. What can I say a hornet bit me and I'm still goofy.
