Before | After

Have yourself a very Lush new year...

Wandered down to the city for lunch with Emilio, one of the guys I work with, and after lunch went to Lush to do some shopping.

I was only intending to pick up one or two items, but...

All their Christmas stock was 2 for the price of 1, plus they had a special where if you spent over $50 you got one free item of anything in the store. Sweet!

I spent $59.90 and got a grand total of $133.20 worth of product.

I got an Ambrosia shaving cream, You Snap the Whip body butter, Blackberry Bath Bomb, Mr Butterball Bath Bomb (2 for 1) and a triple stack of the Christmas soaps (Angels' Delight, Snowcake and 'Twas the Night Before Christmas) (2 for 1 and Emilio and I split the cost and had one each). The guy who served us also chucked in a Whip Stick Lip Balm, a Whoosh Temple Balm and a Party On Shower Jelly for free.

I get the feeling that the guy serving us was gay and thought Emilio and I were a couple! :)

Now I've just got to have more baths!

*drools*

I haven't tried the shower jellies yet. I really want to.

You are a lucky duck.

Incidentally, what are the temple balms for? I know they say to rub them on your temples, but aren't they a bit greasy for that?

Supposedly the essential oils effect your mood. Whoosh revives but keeps you cool, calm and focused.

It also smells divine!

Yum, Yum, yum I love lush. This year I went in to buy a 'little something' for my brothers' girlfriends but couldn't find anything to my budget :(
They seem to be getting more and more expensive...but oh so nice for a treat.

I still love the misting spay that I got in October... I keeps it in my bag for whenever I feel tired, greasy and dirty - instant pick-me-up!

Ooh, a soapporn entry. Although I made it moreso by misreading "free" as "three". You'll be having a very clean 2006, then. Enjoy.

I've been living a very Lush life for the past few days!

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
