collective haul, part two: body, home, food stuff, etc.

Okay, so part two of this haul situation is a little random. Just a warning! And may I just say, I'm looooving that stores are already beginning to stock Christmas items. There's no such thing as too early when it comes to Christmas if you ask me! Bring it on! :D

The Body Shop Spiced Pumpkin bath & shower gel (from the Originals range)

Just sniffing this in the bottle, it's not quite what I expected, but I still really love it. And I love the price of the Originals range, too - $5.99 or 2 for $10!

**UPDATE: I pre-wrote this last night, and today I used this in the shower. It smells totally amazing in the shower! Really spicy and sweet at the same time, and the scent lingers on your skin (though not in an overpowering way). I'm kind of wishing I'd taken advantage of the 2 for $10 deal now... (Which, by the way, if you do that, I'd also recommend the Raspberry Ripple bath & shower gel -- I've had that one and used it up. It's yummy!)

Philosophy Marshmallows for Toasting marshmallow fluff body lotion

This definitely smells like toasted marshmallows.  It reminds me a little of Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel. If you like that, you'll probably like this one.

Slatkin & Co. Winter Candy Apple candle 
(I love this more than words)

Slatkin & Co. Winter Wonderland candle
(peppermint & cinnamon make a surprisingly good combo!)

Slatkin & Co. mini candles (such a smart invention)

B&BW gift bag - how cute is this??

Swan Creek Gingerbread candle, Gingerbread Man tree ornament, Candy Cane soap

Halloween decorative plate

Mom got these goodies for me from a little country store in Haines City - it was chock-full of holiday items for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! Total heaven.

I don't usually do much of anything to decorate for Halloween (I got the Mickey votive holders from a hotel guest last year, and they were my only decoration!).  This year I got a bit more festive! :)

Birthday cards, Mickey votive holders, fall candles, mini pumpkins, Halloween hand towels (Target)

Happy Halloween door hanger (Barnes & Noble)

I keep the giant bow wreath hanger up all year, even though it's meant for Christmas. ;)

Skull plate (bought last year at Target)

Sammy hanging out with the hanging skeleton (Target)

Now on to non-Halloween home things....

cutest deer pillow ever (Mod Cloth)

Missoni for Target stuff...

Missoni for Target throw

Missoni for Target storage box

Missoni for Target scarf

Missoni for Target cosmetic bag

the interior - really spacious, with lots of compartments!

earrings (not from the Missoni for Target line, but thought they fit with the Missoni patterns, and I bought them the same day), hair clips

Random food things...

Spotted these last month at Walmart and fell in love...

Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts (Target) and Pumpkin Cream Cheese muffins (Whole Foods)

Starbucks Toasted Marshmallow Hot Cocoa, Precious Divinity Spiced Chai (TJ Maxx, from Mama)

Alright, lovelies, that's all for now. Hope you're having a wonderful week! 

As always, thanks for reading!
