Within the US I don’t think we embrace marzipan as fully as the rest of the world does. We commonly use it to decorate the tops of cakes on occasion but it’s not something we pop into our mouth for the sake of enjoying it. Some might compare it to Turkish Delight but I wouldn’t go so far as I think it’s positively a gross texture and not nearly as delightful as Turkish Delight.
Mind you my dislike of marzipan extends to the actual candy but not to the wonderful things that Lush Cosmetics creates using its scent.
Once a year, during the Holiday season, Lush releases a wonderful soap entitled Snowcake. Some of you are already obsessed with said soap while others may recognize the name from my past obsessive musings….It is truly a gift from the gods above. Snowcake has a creamy almond scent that Lush dubs as the scent of marzipan. If marzipan smelled nearly this great, I’d be eating it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner yo.

Not a nail girl here but I knew all my crazy nail girls needed to hear ’bout these.
Just when you though gray nails were so very last year, Lady Gaga pops up on September’s issue of Vanity Fair sporting a very bare look. Get the look without over spending your beauty budget with the new limited edition Milani Bare It All Collection, Bare to Wear.
I’ve traveled alot in my day but I’ve never been to Havana. Do you think it’s all Copacabana-like with Lola, Rico, and Tony? God, I hope so. I’d dance the night away with yellow feathers in my hair, you can be damn sure of that!
Until I get to Havana, I’ll have to settle for the Sephora by OPI Havana Nights Mini Collection to give me that sizzle of Cuban heat!
Twi-harders, I know you’re out there even if you’re way to ashamed to admit your status in our little club. If anyone brings up Eric Northman in this post, you shall suffer the wraith of the Muse. Naaa just kidding Eric is hot and stuff (lick-able as well!) but let’s keep on the topic of the delightful little Edward Cullen for the moment. This is not Team Eric or Team Bill and for the record I’m on Team Lafayette, girlfriend is all kinds of hot, but about Twilight….
Twi-harders and nail enthusiasts can jump knee deep into the new Nox Twilight Nail Collection.
