Snow in the Summer

Ah snowcake…

How I love thee! Let me count the ways!

You smell so sweet and lovely! Truly if innocence were to smell it would be the sweet scent of snowcake!

I’ve stocked piled. When I say stock piled, I MEAN stocked piled, snowcake perfume when it was released as a Limited Edition fragrance two years ago! I’ve enough snowcake perfume to last me three lifetimes icon wink

If every someone were to ask me if I had a signature scent this would be what I’d choose! It’s such a gorgeous blend of cherries and almond and vanilla and just yummmmmmm!

Every year around November snowcake pops up on Lush’s website and for about a blessed month of good cheer we are able to purchase her and stow her away for the many months she is not available for purchase!

What Lush Says About Her:
If we didn’t bring out a new batch of Snowcake every Christmas we’d probably be chased all the way to the North Pole by irate
Lush customers. This almond scented, creamy smooth, gloriously luxurious body soap is such a favorite that we were forced into making a hand cream with the same perfume (Smitten, since you asked). If you’ve not tried it before, don’t miss your chance. Once Christmas has passed it won’t be back until next year.

More of what Lush has to say about her (excuse me why I comfort myself with their words):
Snowcake, rich and creamy with a scent of perfumed marzipan, is getting to be an essential in the
Lush Christmas tradition. It’s back again for the Christmas holidays but if you’re one of our devoted Snowcake fans, make sure you get enough to last all year. It’s beautifully calming and soothing; rose and styrax are gentle and softening for your skin; just what you need when you’re feeling tired and emotional (I must say I’m feeling very emotional and she’s quite the comfort).

What I say about her:
I’m not the only person that goes absolutely wild for this creamy bar of soap! She has quite the cult following! Last year (and this year again) we were briefly introduced to her in body powder form! Again, I have stocked pile enough body powder to last me into the next 50 years of my life!

At this point you are probably wondering why I am going on and on about her!

This morning, I sadly cut into my last chunk of snowcake soap! Quite depressing moment! I need a hug! I normally buy an entire slab every single year and it lasts me well into November but this year I gave so much away to friends that I have none left for myself! Oh sadness! Woe! Sigh!

What shall I do with myself until November? I have to make the chunk I have at the moment last well into the summer and fall! I cut my last slab into two pieces and tucked some away to take with me to the UK! I refuse to use it before that!

Such agony….pain…..sadness….cue the music!

I’ll make do.

I’ll temporarily amuse myself with Smitten until I can purchase my beloved again!

It’s going to be a long, hard road but I can do it!

The good news is I still have about 10 Christmas Pud Bath Bombs and about 10 Snow Festival Bubble Bar Slices so at least I can bath in Snowcake! Weeeeeeeeeee!

I can use a hug anyway though…keep ‘em coming people!
