I first heard of Lush after watching a few YouTube videos on the "Mermaid Cocktail," a stunning concoction for your bathtub -- think softening, bubbly turquoise water with golden shimmer swirling throughout. More on that in another post. =) I was in the market to feel a little luxurious so I picked up a new bath bomb. Enter Dragon's Egg:
The best part is that there's a little bit of Sunnyside bubble bar nestled inside the Dragon's Egg -- making the water swirl with that signature golden luster. Here's a video from Lush so you can see it in action. Can't wait to use this! Next thing I got from Lush (thanks Ash!) was an MMM Melting Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt:
If that name doesn't envelop you in fantasies of cotton candy and frosting, I don't know what will. The actual bath melt smells absolutely gorgeous. From the website: "MMM melts into a pink, fluffy waterbed of marshmallow and moisturizing cocoa butter. Each Melting Marshmallow Moment is made with marshmallow herb, which produces a sweet, skin-soothing mucilage and marigold, which is equally calming for your skin. Mixing it with the Bath Bomb mixture means that Melting Marshmallow Moment goes the distance. It fizzes and melts slowly, releasing the softening, soothing cocoa butter and marshmallow into the water..."
Would make the perfect birthday bath, methinks. =)
My obsession with WF began from afar. I kept seeing the name pop up on various blogs, but didn't have one near me to visit. When I finally set foot in the store last Saturday, I was embarrassingly giddy. Didn't let myself go too crazy, but I did pick up a few things I haven't seen at my local grocery store. Though I didn't photograph everything, here's my checkout list:
- Vega Sport vanilla protein packet
- Nature's Path peanut butter granola
- Siggi's vanilla yogurt (was excited to try this, and then promptly disappointed)
- Larabar: carrot cake
- Emmy's macaroons. Exhibit A:
...was going to show you one, but I dun et 'em. They are kind of what I imagine Fitnessista's macaroons to be. The chai spice flavor was spot on, and I wish there were more than three in the package. The trip to WF also subjected me to the best pistachio gelato I've ever had (from the bakery/coffee area) -- super creamy and reassuringly gritty from the pistachios.
Question: Are you a window shopper, or a "gotta have it now" shopper? I was the latter, but am slowly becoming the former (as evidenced by my self-control during this last trip). I think I will always dislike window shopping, but am smart enough not to put myself in tempting situations very often.
Wow...long post. Be back tomorrow with another (shorter) update on my health/fitness journey! =)
