“Wow! I got boobs?!” I yelled in perplexed yet fascinated amazement inside a Victoria’s Secret dressing room. I was trying to stay away from the lady inside who was trying to fit bras on me. She looked at the bra I had come into the store wearing and knew instantly it was an ‘antique’ Victoria’s Secret bra and that it was time to change it up. I was glad she was helping me. I hate going into Victoria’s Secret, but the only reason I decided to get a new bra was all the other brands I had kept getting torn. Victoria’s Secret has to be the REI of Bras because I never had it once rip on me. That lace must be quality because it’s super durable.
I visited the LUSH store again. LUSH allowed me to photograph the items for my article. I am in love with their products because they make it fresh–so fresh, it can melt. There are solid bars of shampoo that they make–good for I think 80 washings. I bought Retread conditioner even though I don’t need it, but the scent… I need that intoxicating ‘what the hell is that’ scent. I didn’t get a cold mask this time; I still need to use up the ones I already have in the frig. LUSH is the only thing I look forward to when I want to relax. Taking a shower, a bath, or putting on cream is never the same again.
Lovely products to try at LUSH:
- Ultrabland facial cleanser and Charity Pot lotion –if you ran out of La Mer–can leave a 40-year-old face feeling and looking dewy as it did at 26 (just don’t put the lotion on the eyes); Jason and the Argan Oil shampoo bar, Sultana of Soap bar, Let the Good Times Roll Face and Body Cleanser, The Sacred Truth mask, Pearl massage bar. I also get the bath bombs. I’m supposed to use it for bath time, but I just keep it in a nice dish out on a table, using it as a room freshener.
I met a gorgeous older woman with a full head of silvery beautiful hair shopping for clothes. She was so stunning. I can’t wait to look good as she did. I asked her how long did it take for her to achieve such beautiful silvery hair. She said it took 5-6 years. I can’t wait to have hair like Carmen Dell’Orifice.
For lunch, I baked some chicken breasts (for the perfect baked chicken breast–sprinkle your chicken with seasoning front and back and then bake at 350 degrees one hour and 10 minutes low broil to get a nice crispy skin) and made a side of cold tomato salad with balsamic vinaigrette with a very light sprinkle of garlic powder. Delicious. I like using heirloom tomatoes or those meaty Kumato black tomatoes.
I do these indulgences occasionally because it feels good. When you feel good, it’s the best feeling and you deserve it.
