What a wonderful Monday.


I am having the BEST day!! Why?

- In two weeks I get to fly away to South Africa and then onto Thailand, Cambodia and Laos with my number one man for a five week vacation full of adventure.

- I found a cute shop on Whyte Avenue called Mystique India. It's a newish boutique filled with aromatic incense and beautiful, handmade little trinkets from India I don't need. I got a small gift for my best friend and a giant red ring for myself.



- I made a random stop at Lush today and had such a fun time with their staff learning about their products. The employees at Lush are incredibly knowledeable and friendly, and one happened to be a fellow blogger! We traded URL's and I thought I'd give her a shout out and some blog love. Please go check out her blog at CordsandThreads.blogspot.com

Anyway, I've been meaning to try Lush's Vanilla Body Powder because I've heard it can be used as a great dry shampoo! The staff were nice enough to give me a free sample! It's probably going to be really difficult to hide in my dark hair, but I'll give it a try. 

I also got a sample of the UltraBland Cleanser, which looks so indulgent and luxurious! It's a super thick cleanser filled with all-natural ingredients like peanut oil (so moisturizing!), rosewater, beeswax and honey. This is one issue I have... They claim all their products are vegetarian and cruelty-free, but I don't consider beeswax or honey vegetarian, but whatevs. Anyway, I'm stoked to try it because I used just a little bit on the back of my hand, and about fives minutes later the skin was so soft I still can't stop petting it! The staff told me it's great for removing makeup. I'll be sure to do a review for ya'll. 



- I'm FINALLY going to see Sex in the City II tonight!!! Eeeeeek, I can't wait.



- Lastly, I wore a floral bow in my hair today... and bows always make me feel bubbly.
