A Beautiful Morning Stroll

A top of the morning to you all! This morning I went for a morning walk, which is our regular and close by to our house. We are so lucky to live so close to such a beautiful walking trail, the wildlife wasn't out in full swing however there were quite a few Joey's out. Here are some snaps I thought I would share, enjoy!

Let me know in the comments below your favourite hiking trail, Joe and I love exploring new trails too!

Bed Bath & Body Works Haul

Hi Pretty Little Loves, 

I am very lucky to have two weeks off uni for mid semester break that I get to share with you all and would love to spend that time posting and possibly making some videos for you. If you would like to see something specific on the blog please leave a comment below or tweet me at @jacquelinejoyc1 I will make a point to fulfil all requests for you guys. Now onto the fun stuff! Bath and Body Works unfortunately are not in Australia however we did get a postal service Shop Mate. The pricing is pretty hefty and seemed to take forever anddd I didn't have the best experience however that is a whole other story for another review! haha 

Below is a haul of the goodies I picked up from Bed Bath & Body Works I have used them up so quickly I'm almost due for another haul as I am still going from my Christmas items! I picked up some hand soaps and 3-wick-candles, unfortunately I couldn't restock on hand sanitiser as the shipping company doesn't allow this. 

Merry Cookie by White Barn

I believe this candle has been out for Christmas two years running now, I really like this candle to set down in the kitchen, every time someone comes over and I've burned this they comment on the deliciousness! It's very sweet with vanilla bean scents and smells like you have been baking a fresh bunch of cookies when lit. This is no longer available online, but I would suggest stocking up around Christmas time. 

This is my least favourite candle purchased, when first lit it smells like fresh real Christmas trees however once you leave it burning for a little while it begins to get a really earthy scent to it. I feel like it gets up my nose and I end up sneezing a lot, definitely will not be re-purchasing this one again.  

Marshmallow Fireside by White Barn

My FAVOURITE scent! I am so bummed this is no longer online for me to re-order this is such a great quality smelling candle and it captures all scents from around a fireside. I keep this one on my bedside table, the smell projected from the candle even when it is not lit is just amazing. 

Now onto the soaps.. 

Merry Cookie Foaming Soap

Of course to match my candle! 

Pumpkin Frost Foaming Soap

I now totally understand why American's are obsessed with Pumpkin when it comes to October, this stuff smells seriously amazing. The scent is my favourite out of all the soaps I purchased. 

Salted Caramel Foaming Soap

This also is a very Christmas'y scent and is very close to that of the Merry Cookie soap scent. As you can see we have been using this one since early January and there is still loads left in the bottle. A little goes a long way with these hand soaps. 

I hope you have all enjoyed this haul post and please leave me a comment below, if not with what you want to see on the blog your favourite bed bath and body works scent + product! 

Lots of love

The Best Easter Long Weekend


No really.. This morning I woke up and went about my usual routine of a morning at home, coffee, laze around and then potter about the house. As I was getting ready to road trip it to the in-law's my Fiance Joe created an Easter egg hunt for me. Let me start by saying, I really suck at Easter egg hunts. I have totally lost my touch! It took me about an hour to find eight eggs planted around the house with the help of our perfect little bunny Hazelnut (she did get back at me for the above photo opp by stealing on of my eggs). I will definitely be practicing so I am prepared for an epic hunt next year. 

We spent the day at Joe's parent's house, watching movies, eating roast and an extremely competitive game of Monopoly. This past long weekend has been so nice just getting to spend time with h2b away from the hustle and bustle of life. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday, now I am heading back to the couch to finish getting chocolate wasted. Leave me a comment below with what you guys did today and how you like to celebrate over the Easter long weekend!
