Inspired By: The Seasons

Philosophy Candy Cane Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath: The smell of candy cane is obviously synonymous with winter and the holidays.  This all-in-one product smells like your childhood.

L’Occitane Lavender Hand Cream: Lavender exudes spring and all things floral and colorful after a few months of dreary, cold weather.  Your hands probably need the moisture.

The Body Shop Coconut Milk Body Lotion: What trees grow on the beach?  Palm trees.  And what grows on palm trees?  COCONUTS.  It’s a main ingredient in sunscreen and all things summer.

June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque: Pumpkin is a staple ingredient for a TON of beauty products since it has a ton of benefits for your skin.  This peel is fantastic; it won’t dry you out and my face feels fresh and rejuvenated after using it.

Taking my very first bubble bath in years

So I was talking to my friend Kelley on the phone the other night and she told me that she was tired and just wanted to take a bubble bath.  A bubble bath?  What a novel concept.  I can’t even remember the last time I took a bubble bath but something tells me that it was in High School, which was the last time that I would consider my tub clean enough to rest my bare bum on it.  In college, bubble baths are out of the question and up until now, I’ve always had roommates where I’d feel a little bad hogging the bathroom for that long (I mean when you’ve gotta pee, you’ve gotta pee, right?).

I started thinking about what I have in my apartment to create a peaceful scene and I think I did quite well.  I used Philosophy’s Chocolate Chip Cookies Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath as super luxurious bubble maker that also curbs my cookie cravings.  I then lit my Diptyque Roses candle, which is one of my favorite scents, and the combo of chocolate and roses is pretty much nirvana in my book.  After relaxing for a bit in the tub, I then put on my comfy Soft Hugwear Spa Wrap so that I could dry off a bit with out putting my clothes back on.  Ah, a great day.  I think I’ll be doing this again soon.

Halloween 2009: Philosophy i love candy corn

So, um this is awesome.  There’s something about this Philosophy i love candy corn 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath…I think it reminds me that I’m totally still a kid at heart and what’s more exciting for a kid than candy corn and Halloween?  Candy corn makes me go back to my elementary school days…how about you guys?  This would make a great gift for a Halloween party hostess too!

Sunday Mimosas

So a teacher I had in high school once told us that in college, Sunday is a day for the figment of your imagination…and even post-college, I’m finding this still to be true. There’s nothing like sitting around with your roommates while drinking mimosas (champagne and OJ delivered, naturally) and watching “Hocus Pocus,” the quintessential Halloween movie from my childhood. As we sat around, singing “I put a spell on yoooou, and now you’re mineeee,” I was reminded that Philosophy, one of my favorite brands, has a 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner and body wash that actually smells like the delectable drink. Mmmmm, I don’t wanna go to work tomorrow.
