I just wandered home after a lovely dinner with some friends and noticed that my box from Nordies had arrived!
Weeeeeeee! Inside was the philosophy pink lemonade bits I ordered! I was discussing this new edition to philosphy’s line in a prior blog which can be found by clicking HERE.
I had originally purchased the 3 in 1 and after getting it home I logged right onto Nordstrom.com to order the other pieces of the collection!
I now have in my possession the body butter, hot salt scrub, and hand cream. Have no fear I’ve taken lovely pictures to share with you!
I’m impressed with all the items in the collection and happy I went ahead and dove right in and got ‘em! I’ll go ahead and review the lot!
The body butter is the first for me, I’ve tried the philosophy body souffle before and never found them anything but sticky and gross! This made me weary of purchasing the body butter but I went ahead and did so after seeing it in store. I’m happy to say it’s sensational! It’s very light, very strong smelling, not greasy, and absorbs super well! The body butter is pretty new as they introduced it during the winter when they did it in the Apple scent. They have since introduced several more scents and I’m tempted to purchase a few because I like it that much! Overall I give it my best rating!
Pink Lemonade Body Butter
In the picture below I’ve compared the body butter to the original body souffle. As you can see the body butter is a light, creamy texture and the souffle is thick and quite sticky when on! I’m so happy they seem to have faded the souffles out and are replacing them with these new butters!
The hot salt scrub is fantastic! The texture is quite like empowermint but not as thick as the gingerbread man or senorita margarita. It’s a very oily, liquidy scrub but works just fantastic! It smells postively awesome and it almost looks like a Pink Lemonade Slushie! It, of course, has that warm tingle that all of philosophy scrubs are known for!
Pink Lemonade Hot Salt Scrub
You can see in the picture below that empowermint and Pink Lemonade are pretty much the same texture!
For some reason or another I always feel like the gingerbread man and senoirta margarita (pictured below on the right) are always more grainer and less oily than the other scrubs in the line!
Finally I purchased the handcream and really what’s to say? It’s just as great as the rest of the line!
If you’re looking for a nice summer shower layering collection, this would be it! It’s truly a perfect 10!
There’s nothing I love more than tasty lipbalms!
When I want something sweet and tasty for my lips I look no further then Vintage Sister’s website! Truly the site is a feast for the lips!
I can’t really recall how long I’ve been purchasing balms from Vintage Sister but it’s been quite a few years and I’m never disappointed in the quality, selection, and customer service!
During Season change and Holidays they offer a tin of lip balm trios and this summer like any other year they are offering a cute tin of yummie treats for your lips!
This year’s trio is entitled Bahama Mama and includes Blue Hawaii, Island Delight, and Strawberry Daiquiri! Oooooo! My lips are tingling already!
If you aren’t interested in any of the tasty summer treats you might want to try a few of my personal favorites!
Mmmm tastes just like the real thing without the calories of course!
Sadly it’s not available year round but it’ll be back for Halloween and Thank God for that! I’m running way low!
Possibly my favorite of all my Vintage Sister balms! I’m always reaching for this!
Such a classic one!
Sounds twisted but it’s yummie as sin!
At $3.95 each you can afford to enjoy all the flavors and $12 for a tin of trios will get you a nice healthy indulgence for your lips!
Vintage Sister isn’t all about balms! They do some very cute bath and body items as well! Personally I haven’t tried anything but the balms and believe me they are worth it plus your husband or boyfriend will thank you
You know that adventure we take every season into the darkness of our closets? The ones where we pull out all our winter clothes and make room for our spring and summer ones?
Well this year during my plunge into the darkness of my closet I had told myself…promised myself….that I’d not buy another pair of shoes for a really long time! As I tore through my closet I came upon shoe after shoe after shoe after shoe….I have enough for everyone in the US by now and maybe a few extra pairs for people living in Europe!
This weekend I took Mai to the Palisades Mall and my strong will to not purchase any shoes…somehow…left me!
I’m thinking that since they are cute shoes I haven’t REALLY broken any promises to myself right? I mean technically if it’s cute that eliminates the need for willpower and any promises made are void!
My weekend haul:
Soooooooo Sexy! These are my total fav of the lot! I have a similiar pair but these have more strap to ‘em!
A perfect size 7! Very geeky shoe moment but I adore these! Will go perfect with my “There’s no place like 127.0.0.1″ T-Shirt
