Bed Bath and Way Beyond

BED BATH and WAY BEYOND................

I had not been into Bed Bath and Beyond for about 2-3 months. I had previously been visiting the store about 1-2 times a month because I was decorating my entire condo until my home is built. I had come to the point where I was all caught up with my decorating (for now) and was focusing on buying makeup, skincare and hair products these past few months for my blog. Due to the increase in makeup, skincare, etc., I was running out of space to store it. So I headed in to Bed Bath and Beyond to buy more storage drawers, some vanity trays and items to organize my makeup.

When I pulled up to my local Bed Bath and Beyond and saw a sign outside that said "World Market" I was instantly intrigued. I went in and immediately saw that the "World Market" consisted of Wine and Speciality Foods. I instantly thought this was an amazing move by BBB to attract traffic to the store. The aisles were so neat and organized with all the wine and speciality foods. All the wine and food was very unique and something that you would not find at your typical boring Grocery Store. I was impressed and will be definitely coming back to shop the "World Market", but I was there for storage and wanted to stick to what I came in for. So I moved on to the "Organization Section" and bought myself way more than just new stackable storage drawers and vanity trays. The haul did not stop there. I bought new hangers, K-Cups for my Keurig Vue, cleanser for my Vue, another shoe rack (how many must one have), and a rolling vanity tray for my extra bathroom toiletries. There is probably more, but this is all that comes to mind.

So I had everything that I needed and was ready to check out, but I always like to walk the long way around to see all the neat stuff that they have out! I ran into a radio for my shower (I have always wanted one) that you can connect via blue tooth to your phone, iPad, etc. and play all your music or even answer your phone in the shower! I always bring my phone into the bathroom to listen to music while I shower or bathe and I can't hear it in the shower! I really wanted to get it that day, but I am going to wait for another coupon to get it! Here is a link to the shower radio, so you can feel my excitement. I don't think this is the one that I wanted, I did not see it online. The one that I wanted was a bit more pricey, unless I am remembering it wrong from all the excitement.

So after I stared at this shower radio for a good ten minutes, I was going to make my way out of the store when suddenly.... it was like the the skies parted and the angles started to sing. There it was right in front of me, a whole enormous section of Makeup, Skincare, Hair Products, Nail Products, and every toiletry you could think of. I stood there in aw for ten minutes just taking it all in, people might have thought I was nuts, because my jaw literally dropped and I couldn't move. All I could get out of my mouth was "when, when did this happen"!! So after I took in all in and slapped my self back into reality, I started walking up and down the aisles to make some purchases. They had everything that you would find at the drugstore plus upscale high end products that you can't even find at Target. The most important part here is, still at "Lower Prices"!! I started in the makeup section and bought some makeup! I could not believe the prices, plus the fact that I could use my BB&B coupons on these items. I than checked out and asked the clerk "how long have you had makeup and toiletries", she said around 3 months. So that made perfect sense as to why I had no idea this had happened! I also found out that this section is technically called "Harmon" (subsidiary of BB&B) and they also carry an in-store brand called Face Values. I bought and tried out the Face Values Foaming Hand Soap and it was the most creamy yet still foaming hand soap I had ever experienced in my life. I will never go back to another Foaming Hand Wash!

The story doesn't end here. After I got home and put away my new makeup storage and makeup, I realized I needed even more storage! So I decided to hit up another BB&B close to me, for fun and to see if it would be any different. This one did not have the "World Market", I was told after inquiring that only some stores at this point have them. The most importantly factor here, is that it did have the "Harmon" section and all the makeup, skincare, hair and nail products you could dream of. This time I noticed a few more things while I was there. I am not sure if it was become I was not as excited and could pay more attention or because this store's "Harmon" section was a tiny bit bigger. I noticed that they also have an entire row of hair brushes and tools. This section had hair dryers, straightens, and curlers galore. I honestly had to hold back tears when I saw that they had the brand Babyliss. I was going to get the Babyliss hair waving wand, but I did not see it there. They also had a whole aisle of natural organic products and even a section of products just from France. They also have tons of household items from paper towel to deodorant to toothbrushes and razors. They have it all!!

Here are a few photos at the last store that I visited, but they are from my phone so I apologize for the quality.

Final Thoughts:

I believe I have found my new Favorite Beauty Destination. I have loved Bed Bath & Beyond for many many years and now I love them even more. I love that they are not only diversifying their stores, but they are bringing in Quality Products at Great Prices. Any beauty blogger knows when a store has the goods and they have the goods! I can't wait to finish organizing my vanity with my new organization drawers and trays that I bought there and share it with you. I also got new vanity accessories from BBB that are going to make it look amazing. That post should be up soon. I hope you enjoyed this post, but what I really hope is that there is a Bed Bath and Beyond near you so you can experience what I have!
