Mini Shopping Excursion

Earlier this month, the long anticipated opening of Bath and Body Works in Hawaii finally happened. It's taken this long for Mai and I to schedule a time to go and check it out.

Even though it's been a couple of weeks since the opening, it was still quite packed inside, although one employee said that it was actually not crowded. Really? We could barely walk without bumping into someone and getting help from a SA was difficult. The store was a lot larger than I thought it would be and was actually larger than the one that I usually go to in Las Vegas. It seems that they have also changed their packaging somewhat

I know that K from cosmeddicted loves Twilight Woods so this next picture is for you. Please let me know the next time you're headed back to Japan and I'll be sure to send you things.

Mai and I were quite good and actually bought only anti-bacterial soap in Kitchen Lemon. It's our favorite for using in the kitchen. It was 6 for $20.00 so we split it.

I usually come back from Las Vegas with tons of products but knowing that I can now go and make a purchase at any time, I didn't feel it was urgent to buy a whole lot and stock up.

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend.

I love the pump soaps from B&BW, we are just finishing up a country apple one now.

Sounds like your experience at the new store was much like it is here for months when they open the first of a new line of stores. H&M and F21 were packed till they opened more locations.

@coffretgorge--Love the Kitchen Lemon one for the kitchen. It's antibacterial and smells so fresh and clean.

@Nic Nic--It's so sad when certain loved brands pull up stakes and leave. Did you know that Victoria Secrets and Bath and Body Works are sister companies?

@Brianna--The Country Apple is a nice scent too!

When Victoria Secrets opened up in Hawaii, it was super crowded for months! I heard that it was the top selling store out of all the stores!

I'm so sorry that it's taken me this long to comment! Thank you SO much for the picture of Twilight Woods for me. I really enjoy trying new scents from B&BW as well!

@K--You're welcome! Although I've been so busy and haven't seen you much online, I DO think about you and am so glad that we got to meet up in Hawaii!
