Fall Finds-Thanks to Lesli & Jamie

Lesli was right, Bath & Body Works has all the fabulous fall stuff in, including PUMPKIN scents. I fell in love with the Leaves Room Spray, it reminds me of hot apple cider warming on the stove. It's mighty strong though, while in line at Chick-Fil-A today I was so excited about my new purchase I thought it would be a good idea to spray a small squirt of the leaves in my car...well it almost killed me. I'm sure when I pulled up to pay for my meal I changed the smell of fried chicken to apple cider in the whole place. I still have a slight headache and can smell it on my clothing and in my hair. So spray with caution in a open room. Maybe this stuff would take care of Bear's corn chip problem... Just Kidding


I also found lemonade lip gloss, I know it's totally not FALL but I love lemonade and it gives off a nice shine.



And last but not LEAST, Pumpkin Lotion! I had to get it, I just had to.
Thank You LESLI!
