My Fall VIP Tote Has Arrived + A Few Other Goodies! ;)

Hey everybody!

I've been anxiously waiting all day for the UPS man to get here! He finally arrived! I now have my Fall VIP Tote in hand and I'm ready to share. In order to get to the $30 mark to get the VIP tote for $20 I picked up the following items...

  • Fresh Picked Heirloom Pear Mason Jar Candle
  • Fresh Picked Farmstand Apple Mason Jar Candle
  • Pumpkin Wallflower
  • Cider Lane Room Spray
  • Pumpkin Candle Sleeve 
Immediately, I sprayed one squirt of the Cider Lane room spray. FYI, my kitchen now smells like caramel candy heaven. Didn't pick up the apple in it at all. Still super yummy goodness! 

Heirloom Pear, like shut up! For real, it's that good! I'm in love. It's a sweet, fruity pear with a good dose of sweet creamy vanilla mixed in. Smells like candy. A must-have in my book! HOARD IT!

Farmstand Apple, which I had last year as well, is just a very basic fresh apple scent. Basically, like Country Apple in candle form. I love apple scents so it's a winner in my eyes!

Brandon @ Bath & Body Works News posted sometime ago about the Pumpkin Wallflower. It's adorable people... I had to pick one up. Not loving that you now have to pay full price for them though.

Pumpkin Candle Sleeve = killing me with cuteness! I'm such a sucker for this cutesy fall stuff. Owls, pumpkins, it's all the same to me! Which by definition in my head equals cute, must-have, need it now. 

Now onto the finale! The Fall VIP Tote. I dug this baby out in a hurry! Let me tell you ... the bag itself stinks! It definitely needs a little love from the Febreeze bottle and if that doesn't work, into the washer it will go. Price tag on the tote itself is $19.50. Pulling all the goodies out, I was hoping to see the new SCP packaging like Tess mentioned on her blog @ Life Inside The Page. I was hoping for a little surprise but nope! BBW gave us the old packaging ... no biggie! Especially since the new SCP packaging isn't all that different from the new packaging anyways. The loofah is ivory or at least in my bag it was. Who knows, maybe others will receive different colors. Nice little treat was definitely the coupon but then I saw it's for $11 3-Wicks (Limit 5 candles per customer). Why? They are $11 each when it's 2 for $22. What's special about this coupon and with a limit? Am I missing something? Lol. 

Here are the pics! Enjoy! ;)


  1. You ordered some really nice things. I'm buying a Yankee Candle Pink Sands Candle this Friday and I'm doing an online order August 1st and getting the following:
    Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Room Spray
    Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Mason Jar Candle
    Mini Candles:
    Pumpkin Cupcake
    Pumpkin Caramel Latte
    Pumpkin Pecan Waffles
    Pumpkin Apple. If the Pink Sands Candle & order on the 1st wasn't enough i'm also buying Selena Gomez Stars Dance(Deluxe Edition) at Target and going to Starbucks. This Friday & August 1st are things I am definetly looking forward to.

  2. Im def getting this offer, which will be my first. But im not sure if i like SCP. Do you know if the items can be taken back and traded for a different scent?

    1. Yes, you can! Anything in the bag you don't like, you can always exchange out for a different scent. I don't like the Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin candle like at all ... It's gross but I actually do like the body care. It smells so much nicer than the candle. :)

    2. I'm so mad! I should have ordered it online when I had the chance. All the stores in my area are sold out so i called a IN store and they won't do phone orders to get the tote!

    3. I'd call all stores around you - If one of them ends up having it - Most do, do phone orders. I can't believe IN wouldn't do a phone order, how crazy of them. If not, maybe eBay? Amazon? The tote was only going to be available from the 24th-28th, I think were the days, so it may be hard to find one now. Hope you find one though! Even if you bought one from eBay or Amazon you could still exchange out the products if you didn't like them or want them. :)

    4. my whole region is sold out so i guess it wasnt meant to be lol oh well i plan on buying some fall stuff tmrw! so i saved some money i suppose.

    5. Well you saved some money and it's not like you can't get all of the items that were in the bag anyways. It's not like it was limited edition products in it or something. Plus, there is plenty of other fall stuff I'd rather have than Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin body care. :)

  3. I just love seeing what you've ordered! I'm adding Heirloom Pear to my BBW shopping list. It sounds perfect from your description & the Mason Jars are so cute... wonder how they burn? Need to check out the reviews on their site.
    BTW I love your blog!

    1. Thank you! I love sharing! :) Heirloom Pear I love! I was expecting to not really care for it but it blew me away. A great scent! I had a Pineapple Mango, Strawberry, and Market Peach Mason Jar candles from the Fresh Picked collection in the spring and they all burned flawlessly! Scent throw is a little weaker because they are smaller but still awesome! :)

    2. Sounds great! I actually love the 4oz candles since they tend to be lighter/weaker (easier for me to avoid headaches/allergies) I'm trying some of the 3 wicks though & love how they fill several rooms w/fragrance!

    3. I totally understand! :) Some 3-wicks are on the lighter side though. I find a lot of the fruity fragrances tend to be lighter like Pineapple Mango. Thanks for checking out the video! Hope you enjoy! :D
