My Easter Lush Goodies!

The lucky girl that I am, Vlad surprised me with all my favorite Lush Products for Easter!!! I’ve trained him right 😉

The Dreamtime Bath Melt could seriously put an elephant to sleep – loaded with Lavender flowers and essential oils – you will doze into your favorite dream…

The Emotibombs are for the shower! You put them on the floor just beside where the shower stream hits and it will fizzle amazing scents into vapor – pretty much like a steambath/aromatherapy wake up in the morning! Too Drunk… is great for hangovers and when you are all congested with a cold or have a headache. Up you Gets is a citrus smelling emotibomb that works better than a cup of coffee in the morning for me!

Toner tablets deliver a steam facial when dropped in boiling water. Just cover your head with a towel and put your face above the vapours. These ones are in tea tree – great for blemish prone skins!

Last but nowhere near least – the fresh facemasks! Never been disappointed by these beauty treats! Keep these suckers refrigerated as they are made completely of fresh ingredients! Brazened Honey has honey to moisterize, and ground almond to exfoliate. A Crash Course in Skincare I still have yet to try!

I hope everyone had an amazing Easter! I spent mine with extended family and ate my heart out! Tried to ignore my nonstop cell phone, and watched movies with my babe untill my eyes rolled into the back of my head… ;P

The coolest part of the gift was the Easter themed bath bomb (explodes in the bath and fizzes into nothing releasing vapours and bath oils) in a honey smell! Inside the egg is a bar of honey soap & bubble bath! Can’t wait to start the soaking!

Mondays at Work… Luxury apartments…

You know, it’s 2pm and my eyelids still feel as if they are being weighed down with sandbags. Offices are such the antichrist of art and brain stimulation – I tell ya! So rigid and monochrome… beige this, brown that, paperclip this, stapler that… bleh! Get me out of here! I bring my Mighty Leaf green tea to work to at least inspire my taste buds throughout the long duration of an office workday. Phew!
I am currently working on renting out luxury apartment buildings for where I will be moving in March. It’s really pretty cool as I am fully in charge of choosing who I want as my neighbors ;). You see, my boyfriend is an engineer who works with his father who owns a construction company. Really his job description is a contractor who makes sure everyone is on the ball (key when managing construction workers). Soooo… the newest project they have been working on is this luxury apartment building that they re-built from scratch (with the exception of its shell). The result is a condo-inspired rental building with uber lush stainless steel appliances and kohler fixtures throughout. Mmmmmm… I’m personally dreaming of my sunken in bubble massager tub, dishwasher (oh how I hate doing the dishes), and fireplace. For a canadian, I must say fireplaces seem to melt the winter away just the slightest bit faster. So, I am anxiously awaiting March for the added luxury entering my life, and dreaming of it every time I see pictures of the beautiful renderings! We will be taking a 4 1/2 with two bedrooms (one to be converted into a beautiful open spaced closet and art room) ahhhh! I cant help but invision martini nights with my girls and just living like a queen in my palace! Best thing of all though – it’s free! No rent to pay as it is our building and we are the “renting office”. Amazing. Could life truly get any better for a start-up fashionista? I think not my friends, I think not. No rent means I as good as own that rose printed Stephen Sprouse speedy I’ve been swooning over (drool…). Hate me yet?
