Musings of the Day: What Was Your First High End or Counter Moisturizer?

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

Does anyone remember Clean & Clear Moisturizer (not even sure they make it anymore?)? I remember using it in high school. It had a tingly sort of feeling going on my face and supposedly had an oil-free formula but my face somehow still looked oily after using it.

I was trying to remember my first real counter moisturizer this morning.

Do you remember yours?

Musings of the Day: What Did You Haul During the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale?

bath and body works sale1

It’s possible abnormal to walk out of Bath & Body Works hauling out a bag of twenty or so candles but that’s exactly what happened to me during the Semi-Annual Sale.

I really, really wanted to indulge during the typical two for twenty deal when Bath & Body originally launched some of their Spring/Summer 2012 candles but couldn’t justify a purchase since I had SO many left over from Christmas.

But since they are on sale plus extra coupons and such floating around the Internet I ended up hauling.

Where I’m storing all of this is anyone’s guess!

Outside of the candles I also picked up some home fragrance oils and some of the silver plated candle holders.

What about you?

What sort of major haul did you do at Bath & Body Works?

Share your haul with me!

Curious what everyone got.

Did anyone feel this year’s sale was kinda small-ish compared the year’s past?

I remember hauling X-mas stuff, older products, etc…during the sale and tons of accessories and such. This year it seemed like the stuff on sale was mostly products they just recently launched this Spring/Summer.

Musings of the Day: Waterless Shower Anyone?

Even the good Doctor needs a little water in his shower!

Remember old dime novel sci-fi novels and flicks that would have occupants of a space shuttle jump into a cubicle for a water-free shower?

I mean the idea sounds rather fab. Jumping into a stall and coming out of it clean as a daisy? Heck, some novels, shows, and movies depict people going in with their clothes on and coming out with new clothes and a freshly washed body.

But honestly, I’m all for water. I take a shower in the AM and indulge in a calming, relaxing Lush bath in the evening on cold Fall and Winter nights. Fact is, I rely on water to wake me up! That splash in my face in the morning is just what I need to get me into work mode because facts is facts I am SO NOT a morning person.

What if water factored out of your shower experience?

Would you be cool with a waterless shower?

What Summer or Fall 2012 Makeup Collections Are You Most Excited About?

Fall 2012 Summer 2012 Makeup

With MAC officially releasing Hey, Sailor on today (although it has been online for a while now) I was musing over what Summer Collections I’m most excited about.

Since Urban Decay hasn’t really introduced a Summer 2012 Collection outside of their new eyeshadow system (what did you think of their newly revamped shadow collection?) I was kinda sorta hopeful we might see something else from the brand as we head deeper into Summer.

Or are you just skipping Summer and heading right into Fall?

Which Summer 2012 Collections are you fancying at the moment?

Ready for Fall 2012?

Do share!
