Bath & Body
I always get “Ewww you take baths?” from many friends and even readers on here. For whatever reason people don’t think a bath gets you very clean, I’m inclined to agree. I never feel like I can wash my hair quite right in a bath! That’s what showers are for!
Baths though, baths are MADE for relaxing. I do indeed take and enjoy baths but typically they aren’t to get clean it’s more of a relaxation treat for me. I take them when I have a bad migraine as the warm water really helps to ease a migraine, I take them on a cold Winter’s night to warm up, and I like taking them after work to just ease the stress of the day away.
To get clean? Not so much! To relax? Hells yes.
That’s why products like The Body Shop Glazed Apple Bath Jelly is totally a treat for my relaxing Holiday baths because lord knows after a busy, stressful day of shopping you need a bath to just soak away the woe of spending all that money on gifts for the fam and friends on your list ha….
And I’m positive The Body Shop Glazed Apple Bath Jelly takes a note from dear Aunt Bethany’s Jello Mold…

Add a little luminous glow to your skin this Holiday with the new, limited edition Sonia Kashuk Shimmering Body Souffle in Decadence.

My friend Libby was here from London for a few weeks much to my delight. We typically have zero Christmas time together and we end up exchanging gifts via post but this year she surprised me and came to New York for a few weeks. It isn’t quite Christmas but with the decorations and lights and the city preparing for it, well, it felt like Christmas to me.
Considering we never get to see each other around the Holidays we decided we’d go all out and have ourselves a Merry little Christmas early! We skated, we toured the city to look at all the window displays, we saw “the tree”, we went to see the Nutcracker, basically every quintessential New York Christmas tradition was upheld, hell we even had photos taken with Santa.
We exchanged gifts before she left last night for home and one of the gifts she gave me was Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Intense Parfum. I wanted to share it with you because it was extra special.

You may or may not know Lush Forum Fragrances are a traditional Holiday release for Lushies. Typically every year the Lush UK Forum votes on a few of their VERY favorite Lush fragrances to be made into unique, limited edition perfumes! At one time the release was exclusive to the UK which did in fact ship to the US but years past the US forum also got these exclusive fragrances. Snow Fairy, Creamy Candy Melt, Potion…are just some fragrances that have been made into perfume!
But not this year…
This year we got a Lush Live Event where Lush employees suggested gifts and shared fun facts about Lush and even showed us how they made bath bombs which was quite interesting however, the lack of fragrances was terribly disappointing.
Lucky enough the UK has upheld the tradition and released several limited edition fragrances in the UK Kitchen which you can purchase now (they ship worldwide)!
