The Lush Magic Mushroom Bubble Bar holds a special place in my heart not only because it’s the perfect Valentine’s Day bath treat but also because I’m a gamer.
At five or six years old my dad purchased me an Atari 2600 (I still have it) and I promptly got addicted to ET. ET was probably the most lame-o game every but props for being one of the first franchise style games in history.
Look at these wicked ace 1983 graphics!
Flash forward a few years and I became obsessed with Super Mario Brothers. At this time I wanted to BE Princess Toadstoll. That bitch had game, seriously, two successful plumbers fighting all sorts of evil to save her ass. Thus my love of cute mushroom-y themed items began.
Needless I associate mushrooms with power ups and believe you me take a Lush Magic Mushroom in the tub with you and you’re bound to perk up (or power up) with the scent of creamy strawberry!
Lush’s first ever lip gloss for Valentine’s Day makes my lips pucker in delight. Lush the Kiss Lip Gloss was recently launched with their Valentine’s Day 2013 Collection and I was a little skeptical about trying it. Typically Lush lip balms are very dense…as much as I love the brand I haven’t loved a single one of their lip balms.
The Kiss I was skeptical of but also very interested as it wasn’t called a balm but a lip gloss! Wow…this is the first potted lip gloss in known history.
Once upon a time, back in the 90’s, when it seemed like Jean Rochefort was much younger by not a lot, he starred in one of my favorite French films, The Hairdresser’s Husband.
As with many French films I’ve watched, The Hairdresser’s Husband contains its fair deal of sex, passion, romance, love, and some sadness.
The story revolves around a 12 year old version of Jean Rochefort’s character who falls in love with his hairdresser. Later on in life he romances and marries a similiar such hairdresser. Obviously his wet dreams about his childhood crush have carried well into his adult ones. And so begins an odd romance….!
Without giving too much away there’s a scene in the movie that showcases the characters having a drink of cologne and aftershave because they don’t have any liquor. It’s morbid, comical, and it always made me laugh.
Funny enough, leave it to Lush, to create a perfume based on this foreign film and dub it the Hairdresser’s Husband. I’m surprised that Lush didn’t make it edible as well so we could wear it and drink it as well.
But sorry, no reenacting fabulously memorable movie moments here, this is simply for wearing not drinking.
I hope you all had an magical Christmas and are looking forward to a Happy New Year! It feels like it flew by! I guess when you get older it doesn’t take nearly as long to get here as when you were a child.
