After off-roading, Kels ran into Northpark to grab some of a limited edition run of an old favorite product from Lush. I sat in the car and waited for her, and what she brought back - Flower Tub Bubble Bar - smelled so enchanting I knew I'd have to get some for myself. Every year, Lush takes votes from their loyal customers for which out-of-production items should be brought back in a limited run, and Flower Tub was this year's popular demand item. The bubble bars are really neat because it's like a barely-dried lump of play-dough and you hold it under the running tap and it produces mountains of fragrant bubbles. I think this has a lot of juniper in it, too.
This reminds me a bit of one of the herbal baths from Kneipp, which is great stuff, by the way. I would buy the Kneipp stuff at the Cupboard when I was going to school in Denton. That reminds me-- I miss my Victorian bathtub.
Anyway, for anyone who would have run out to Northpark to pick up the Flower Tub bars - don't bother-- I bought the last 8 tonight. Maybe next year, eh?
Anyway, it was a great bath, and I slid down in the tub into bubbles up to my ears, the water a mossy green. Now I smell all nice and flowery. I was reading a book with a green cover The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett. I was actually thrilled to see that someone got what looks like a curry stain on a page in the book. I wondered how such a person could have relinquished this book to Half Price Books, but I'm glad they did.
Favorite passage I've read today:
The old man had a large white horse tethered to a withered tree in a snow-filled gully some way from the circles. It was sleek, glossy and the general effect of a superb battle charger was only very slightly spoiled by the hemorrhoid ring tied to the saddle.
What's not to like, laughing as I go?
I'm annoyed at Sephora. They (and every store these days, it seems) are so nosey and always want to enter your store i.d. info when you buy something so they can track sales, I suppose. Well, after Lush, I went to all the trouble to schlepp over to Sephora for my favorite lipsticks from Sue Deveritt and Lola. Turns out they have those brands on their website, but will no longer carry them in the store. It seems to me that if they've got all my personal information, including my frequent/repeat product purchases, they could bother to shoot out an email asking me to continue to buy these fabulous items on their site, and save me the annoyance of the two mile hike from parking lot to shop. I'm just saying. I mean, if they know what I had for breakfast and that I'm wearing my Thursday panties, well, they could share some information that helps me for a change, don't you think?
Yeah, me neither.
Golly, I smell great. You should smell me. I smell like a garden of earthly delights. I'm not exaggerating. I mean, if you like that sort of thing, you'd agree. :P
