leopard cameo scarf by candystore collective




Happy Thanksgiving! I decided to forgo Black Friday and just start shopping November 1st. There have been so many great sales in the last few weeks that I couldn't resist purchasing a few things for myself. I figure that if I am nicely dressed, I will have an easier time buying things for others. Or...ya know. Something along those lines that justifies me shopping for me. 

I had never heard of Candystore Collective, but a fellow bloggy friend claimed an offer that they had posted (damn you Facebook offers!) so I of course had to check it out. 30% off is basically free, so that is a discount that I do not take lightly. 

It is not an inexpensive site, but they have a very nice assortment of clothing, jewelry and accessories that you don't see everywhere. With my 30% of I purchased this lovely black, white and grey cameo scarf. I love that it goes with almost anything, is very lightweight and after my discount was under $30. I received my order quickly in the mail a few weeks ago and have worn the scarf with everything from a grey sweat outfit (I was running errands and it was cold - don't judge) to a pencil skirt and platforms. 


Use the code above on your first order to get 30% off! I have had an issue with this promo code, but if you follow them on Facebook they often post codes for 30 or 40% off (FREE!!). 

Don't eat to much and happy shopping!

caress endless kiss body wash is silky goodness



I've always been very picky about bath products. I have never been a fan of the bath and shower gels that make you smell like a giant fruit basket or a giant field of lavender (although that is a very lovely mental picture). I was excited to try Endless Kiss Silkening Body Wash as soon as I heard that it contained sandalwood and vanilla fragrance, two of my favorites. 

This is a very hydrating and creamy wash. It does not foam up a lot, which to me is a good sign because that usually means that a product is not full of soap and fillers. I have been putting a handful of this in my bath while it is running so that the entire bath smells like sandalwood goodness and then shaving with it. Endless Kiss does not leave a film on your skin and a soft scent remains for a while when after your bath, but nothing overwhelming. I will definitely be repurchasing this body wash! 

Caress products can be found at Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and many other retailers. Their body washes run around $6 for 18 oz.
