My Review of Bath&Body Works Holiday Collection 2010

 I had the pleasure of going into Bath and Body Works the other day and I was pleasantly surprised at what I discovered. The day before I saw some adds that the Holiday collection was out, so I new I was in for a treat.
    The first thing I noticed was the Christmas lotion selection, Vanilla Bean Noel, Winter Candy Apple, Snow Kissed Berry, (which is new) and Twisted Peppermint. They have Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Fragrance Mist, and Triple Moisture Body Cream. I love the fact that they have Triple Moisture Body Cream. My skin gets drier in the winter so I need all the moisture that I can get. Its fun to know that during the holidays, I can smell like a warm dessert all of the time. One thing that they are doing this year is offering free gift wrap and ribbons with purchase. You have to do the work yourself but if its free I'm not complaining. The have all of their holiday scents Buy 3 get 2 free.
    My favorite item would have to be their lip gloss. They refer to their lip glosses as Liplicious. This year they have developed a new cupcake inspired line. The flavors are  cupcake flavors and the tops are shaped like cupcake liners. The flavors are Pink Chiffon, Red Velvet, Strawberry, Cookies ‘N’ Cream, Coconut, and Marble Gloss. The packaging is adorable. They also have their Holiday scents, along with the scents from previous years which are fruit and candy flavored. These are buy 2 get one free.
    For the home and bath, they have Holiday inspired candles, hand sanitizers, and wall scents. For the hand sanitizers, they have the holiday scents in novelty dispensers. For example  the Twisted Peppermint comes in a fun peppermint sized container. They also have a fun snowman for the other flavors. These are 2 for $12.
    In the candles they have scents such as Evergreen, Holiday Wreath, Spice and the previous mentioned Holiday scents. The full collection will be available on the 11th of November. In the wall scents, they have snowflakes, snowmen and Christmas tree shaped dispensers some of the scents are Frosted Cranberries, Vanilla Caramel, Cinnamon and Clove and Creamy Nutmeg. These are on sale two for twenty.
    I love the holiday Season, and Bath and Body Works makes it even better. When you make a purchase, you will receive a coupon book that you can use for even more Savings in the future. All purchase can be made on line at or at your local Bath and Body Works.

New added posts

Recently a friend told me that I should let people know about my daily struggle with Fibromyalgia and Endometriosis. So i decided to take all my online post and combine them into one blog. As you can see Fibro- (the nickname I have for Fibromyalgia) can mess with your feelings and your emotions. Sometimes I'm happy sometimes not so much. But this is my Journey to become a writer and to hopefully be able to counsel others that are going through hard times. That's right in the midst of all of this I hope to one day go to grad school, Yes I maybe crazy but it gives me the strength to keep going. I want to be able to help others one day. Thank you for reading and supporting me through this
Well I went to the Dr today. Dr’s get on my nerves although, I must admit I do like my Dr. now a lot. When you have been sick for over 2 years and they haven’t found a cure yet or even as of today a definite diagnosis,  it can kind of get to you. The doctor decided to leave my meds the same at least for a month. He wants to study some blood work I had done last month before my surgery to see if they would interfere with the new medicine he wants to try. I’m not as emotional today which is a good thing.

Wanted feedback!

Does anybody read my post?
OK so I have posted three times, The only thing I’m missing is your feed back! I love to write My dream is to be a paid writer someda,y but we will see if that happens.  I have been on my new meds for a few days now. Its the same as before sometimes I feel good other times I don’t. It is so freaking hot in Dallas today as its supposed to be even hotter tomorrow. I wish I could move! I wish I could be totally independent, I have thought I might want to live in LA you know since its 72 degrees there while we are sweating but I'm not sure! It is expensive there! And I’m not a model/actress type nor do I want to be, I'm me!!! I love me, I just wish I didn’t have endo and Fibro. I wish I could run, hike, play basketball, football, softball and go hang with my friends! I miss our dinners and good talks. And I never see movies anymore! I’m still able to do some of these things I just don’t very much! Anyway Thanks for listening to me ramble

Warnings to everyone who gets monthly medicine!

Just a reminder! What has been going on with me!
When you go to the pharmacy always check your meds! I take daily medicines because of my health issues. I have fibromyalgia endometriosis cerebral palsy migraines etc. They messed up my medicine they game me two of one and none of the other. The side effect i noticed was depression, anxiety and irritability. I though it was bad PMS. I get angry when I think I could have died and truthfully haven’t been examined yet so I don’t know what is going on in my body. I’m kinda scared so send prayers good thoughts my way. And this explain all those emotional tweets which I apologise for. I try my best to be positive to help others. I feel I was put on this earth to help others.

More about me the Real Me behind the computer

Hello, I’m Jen and here is my story.I live with pain 24/7. I have 2 diseases Fibromyalgia and endometriosis. Te pain is not fun. I’m in bed a lot. There are no cures to these diseases so for now I take pain meds and I use my heating pad. So I’m online a lot. I have rediscovered my love of music. Another Thing Fibromyalgia also affect my mental abilities its called Fibro Fog, you walk around like you’re in this deep fog. I’m losing my memory. Now what was I writing oh yeah. Being in bed a lot, I watch TV. I enjoy Glee, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars and sports. I also try to keep up with the news. I feel that it strengthens my mental abilities. It makes me feel like a part of the world to know what’s going on even if I can’t physically be a part of it. Being sick has been a blessing in disguise. It has caused me to reevaluate the way I think especially politically as well as human rights I used to be very black and white but now I see lots of grey areas. I was brought up a Christian republican, Now I happy to say I’m more moderate. I still have my faith but being sick has caused me to view it differently. I’m using my inner strength to overcome my weaknesses which are my diseases. I have recently found a love for writing. I have had three articles published in a local fashion blog. I enjoy fashion but I also want to use my writing as a way to enlighten people about Fibromyalgia and endometriosis.
