Zoya Nail Spoons: Zoya Wants To Spoon With You!

I never claimed to know much about the mysterious world of obsessed nail fanatics. Who are you people and do you really exist? I mean being a makeup junkie is oh so common but nail girl’s that are absolutely bonkers over the next shade of purple varnish is the stuff of urban legends for beauty geeks like myself.

Do girl’s seriously go ga-ga for the next great color release? Are they obsessively collecting nail polishes the way some of us collect eyeshadows?


Not but seriously….I can relate even though I’m not a nail girl.

But I will say I was kinda excited when I heard Zoya wanted to spoon with me…well…not excited like that.

Lush Smitten Hand Cream Review

Lush Smitten Hand Cream 1

Marzipan a strange and unusual cake topper in some areas of the world and in others, an art form….

Seriously, have you seen what people create using marzipan? It’s down right strange.

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.
