Picking up bits of treats on a Friday afternoon after 60+ hours work week is my idea of starting the weekend right. I popped by a local mall on the way home from work, having decided that shopping therapy is going to cost me much less than stress therapy.
The first stop had to be a place where it’s all about pampering and for me, that’s Lush! I decided to pick up only two items and received a few samples to try out, which is always the best part of shopping there! You could always ask for a sample and they are always more than willing to make you one.
I wanted to pick up another FUN Bar ($6.95, available here) a playdoh-looking product popular for its 4-in-1 use and the fact that, yes, it is reminiscent of childhood creations. It comes in several scents, and I’ve tried 2 of the 5 scents so far and have loved each and every one of them. I love using this as a bubble bar as you get just as much bubbles as my favourite The Comforter, but at a much cheaper price. You can also use this as a shower gel, shampoo/conditioner and bubble bath. I always buy this when I’m at Lush because a portion of the proceed goes to a fund that supports victims of Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster by providing children with a safe and fun area to play in. Anyways, I’ve tried the orange citrus one and that smells equally as good!
I had four black tubs ready for their recycling program, but unfortunately, I needed one more to be eligible. I was at the checkout, thinking that I was going to splurge on the Charity Pot, but ended up leaving the store with Cup o’ Coffee ($10.95, available here) instead because I’m a sucker for anything with coffee in it. Remember the Jealous Body Scrub review I did? I pretty much ration it out so I can get more uses out of it seeing now that I’m running on less than half of the packet!
Before leaving Lush, I wanted to make sure I knew what I was going to pick up the next time I came in. I noticed two new face masks mostly because of their very colour: Rosy Cheeks ($12.95, available here) which I am heavily leaning towards and Don’t Look At Me ($10.95, available here). Both masks are definitely more pricey than their counterparts, while still weighing the same.
I got lazy and forgot to photograph my last purchase, but it is because I’m a little embarrassed that I’m buying sandals at the end of the summer season! Then again I’m a sucker for anything on sale. Well, for $12 a pair, and because they are so darn comfortable too, I couldn’t resist picking up another pair of the American Eagle Outfitters Crochet Sandals ($12.98). Nothing remotely close to being crochet, but it is so darn comfortable in to walk around all day!
