Caution Lots of Coconut Ahead: Bath and Body Works Signature Coconut Collection Review

Bath and Body Works Signature Coconut Collection Summer 2011 1

I’ve been to a slew of various Caribbean islands and there’s always at least one guy on some street corner, fair, or flea market that has some sort of huge ass Silent Hill-like knife that’s splicing coconuts open and sticking a straw in ‘em to drink. It’s fascinating to watch because in most cases it’s a little old man who’s popping these things!

Yeah well, that’s my story of the day! Speaking of coconuts!

Bath and Body Works takes on everyone’s favorite tropical treat for the Summer with their new range Signature Coconut Collection. That collection features fragrance mists, lotions, potions, and even lipgloss in three new scents with a heavy base note of, why yes, you guessed it, coconut baby!

L’Occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum Review

LOccitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum 5

Summer’s here…!

At least I think it’s here. We had a rather uneventful Spring with lots of rain and Summer kinda raced in to the point that AC is absolutely essential, SPF in large quantities should be worn, and a lightweight Summer fragrance needs to be picked out ASAP.

By the way, in other news, hordes of Jelly Fish crashed on Florida shores this weekend. The species is not really common (betcha they are related to the Kraken) and did sting a few peeps but Lifeguard’s had a “vinegar solution” on hand for those who did get stung…vinegar solution eh…hmmmm…..!

Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum

Just a word to the wise this is why we have pools people. The beach has seaweed, unknown species of Jelly Fish that may or may not be related to the Kraken, and sand that will get up in your business.

Anyway….

’bout that lightweight Summer fragrance we all need!

L’occitane Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum might be just the ticket and hopefully it keeps Jelly Fish at bay or at least works on their sting if you happen to subject yourself to the evil wiles of the beach.

Baviphat Magic Band Lumy Lovely Eau de Toilette Review

Baviphat Magic Band Lumy Lovely Eau de Toilette 001

What was that tag line from Field of Dreams? Build it and they will come? I need to steal that for cheap Asian Eau de Toilettes….”Make them and she will buy them…” That’s me, sucker punched into purchasing really bad EDT sprays from Korea.

I keep buying into cheapie EDT sprays because they are so damn cute but OMG they smell like…

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Lavender Eau de Toilette Spray Review

Fez

Long weekend ahead!

W00t! I can’t wait. I was so tempted, soooooo tempted to head to Phoenix Comic Con this weekend to stalk Wil Wheaton but I’m kinda Con’ed out as I’ve been to three or four this year already and saw him recently at another Con…I didn’t want him to realize I was stalking him you see, there’s a method to the madness. I should be over my Con hang over by February of next year to attend Gallifrey One though, maybe we can get WW there and dress him in a bow tie and a fez, it’s my sexual fantasy come true. You’re doing it wrong Wil…! I need a set of Christian Louboutin Bianca Platform Pump in Merlot and I can totally capture his eye, either that or wear some Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Lavender Eau de Toilette Spray for the win!

Review: The Mystery of Bath and Body Works Cherry Vanilla

My geeky good nature is forcing me to tell you, HAPPY TOWEL DAY! It’s May 25th which means it’s towel day! Gosh, Star Wars Day and Towel Day all in the same month!

When I was a wee one, I read the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and proceeded over the course of the next 100 years of my life to re-read it over and over and over again because it was the epicenter of my geeky youthful life. Anytime I go on vacay, holiday, away for the weekend, to stay at a friend’s place, etc….I tend to tote my own towel around simply because of that blessed book….

Granted, I wasn’t up for carrying around a towel to my office today but I did tuck a washcloth in my bag just for the sake of celebrating Towel Day…ya know, gotta represent.

Bath and Body Works Cherry Vanilla

So don’t panic, grab your towel, and by the way let me tell you about the mysteries of Bath and Body Works Cherry Vanilla, the memo wasn’t sent to me on this one!
