A Few Fun Walmart Finds!

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Hi friends!! Happy Wednesday!!
It's been a while since I have shared some fun items that I have come across at I thought I would do that today!!!

I have talked about 719 Walnut Avenue candles several times...they are $4.93 each and are basically identical to the 3-wick candles from Bath and Body Works!! They last a LONG time and smell SO good!! 
Currently at my Walmart, they have these four scents- that I have never seen before- and OMG. They all smell AMAZING!!! If you can't go on a beach vacation to chase away the winter blues...go pick up one of these candles and at least your house will smell like a tropical island! HA!
Just FYI: you will find these candles over in the cleaning products aisle- NOT the candle section!
While I was checking out the 719 Walnut Avenue candles my Walmart had in stock, I also came across these Essential Oil Soy Candles by 719 Walnut Avenue!! They all smelled wonderful, come in a beautiful natural colored stone jar and are only $5.88! For a natural, soy candle- that is a steal!! The great thing about soy candles is that they burn so clean. I would have picked up one of each of these candles..and then a couple more (HA!)...but I am on a bit of a spending freeze while we build our new house. All those upgrades I want are cheap! HA! You can find these candles right by the other 719 Walnut Avenue candles!
 I found the CUTEST dress when I walked by the women's department last week at Walmart!! It is a shift style dress and it is by Faded Glory. It is $14.88!! The material is really nice and a great medium weight...not flimsy at ALL. It comes in this heathered gray color as well as a heathered denim color!
It also comes in this adorable navy stripe and a coral stripe!!!
In my opinion- this is such a versatile, can be worn every season type of dress!
Right now- wear it with a long cardigan, tights and boots. For spring, pair it with a denim jacket and flats, in the summer, wear it with a cute pair of wedges or even flip flops! In the fall- booties and a cardigan or fun utility vest! The possibilities are endless!! I am definitely going to be picking up one of these dresses- it will be perfect for me to wear to church!
Finally- I wanted to show you this SUPER cute and functional tote! This is not a new item- Walmart has had carried this Reversible Tote by George for a least 2 years now...but I feel like not a lot of people know about it!! It is kind of hard to find in the purse section at Walmart stores...and the colors they carry can be kind of random. It is only $9.88!! I personally own is a pink/purple combination and I love it!! It is not as big as this tote from Nordstrom...but almost identical in it's look and style- for $38.00 less!
This tote comes in a BUNCH of color combinations...for instance this tote is a combo of blue and aqua!!! SO PRETTY. It also comes in classic black/tan combo and several really pretty color combos! For just under $10- this is such a great little tote- perfect to put your laptop or ipad in...bring on the airplane...or as an inconspicuous mom bag!! A lot of the color combos are sold out online...but go check out the purse section at your local Walmart to see what colors they have in stock!!
I am such a slacker and didn't take a picture of them- but I got a BUNCH of cute Valentine's plates, cups and napkins at Walmart for my daughter's school Valentine's party!! Their Valentine's section is ON POINT this year!!

I would love to know...have you seen any fun "must-have" items at your Walmart lately??

Hope you have the BEST day!


  1. LOVE the navy! I'll have to check it out the next time I'm there.

    Have you guys broke ground yet? Will you be sharing your plans, etc for the new house? I'm a sucker for house stuff. Fun fact. For fun, when I was a little girl, my mom & I would go to open houses. We still love going to the parade of homes in our area, too!

  2. I love your WalMart finds!!
    That dress is super cute! I have that tote, as well! I love it!!

    1. Isn't that dress just simple and perfect? In person, it feels a lot more expensive than $15! So fun you have one of the totes!! I just love mine!

  3. Ohhh I love that tote!! I saw those candles at my WalMart the other day =) I am still in love with the pumpkin waffle candle. I may have stocked up on them so I can burn it all year!!

    1. I love Pumpkin Waffle too!!! My husband is always getting on me about hoarding candles!! HA! I am going to treat myself to some of those new scents when it gets a little warmer outside!!

  4. So you got me hooked on those candles but my issue is that the scents they have out aren't winter scents. I want something of a baked good or a woodsy scent. Tropical doesn't really work in February in Ohio.

  5. Fun finds!! I wish I could burn candles, but my cats mess with them, the kids are interested in them and they almost always give me a headache. So I opt for decorative candles only. Bummer! LOVE that dress!! I'll have to go and try it on. I think the stripes and gray would be fun to have. I've purchased that tote as a gift, but I should probably think about picking one up for myself. You are so right about the Valentine's Day department this year!! They have such cute things!! I'm really loving anything from the Better Homes and Gardens line. I'd like one of everything :)

  6. We absolutely love our pink and green reversible tote around our house. And gifted, of course, from a very special friend. It holds the iPad, flashcards, and change of clothes for our busy Wednesday and Friday nights of gymnastics and basketball practice. Super cute and doesn't stand out as a mom bag When you've outgrown a traditional diaper bag.

  7. Thank you so much for the tip on the candles and the tote. Both are things I will look for on my next trip to WM. You already know about my latest finds - the Valentines plates and the Catalina swimsuit. Have a wonderful Thursday!

  8. I'm not a candle girl but that dress and purse are totally my style!


I love hearing from you! Let's keep it nice though...ain't nobody got time for anything else!
