First thing, if you ever buy Listerine's Whitening Rinse, I must strongly warn you to be careful about how long you swish that stuff in your mouth. I had it before, but always rinsed for maybe 20-30 seconds and had no problems. Well, recently I had bought another one and read on the back that it instructed to swish for 60 seconds. So I did it. BAD IDEA. I lost my sense of taste for 2 days...it was dreadful, the tip of my tongue tasted nothing. It was bad.
A few years back, there were coupons from Bath & Body Works (that we totally abused) that were circulating. It gave us a free aromatherapy product with ANY purchase. Dangerous words. We used it for all it's worth. We would buy a $1 glycerin soap and walk away with "Sleep" "Energy" "Sensual" "Stress Relief" lotions, massage oil, bubble bath, shower gel, you-name-it products. I mean, we went nuts - but it was so much fun. Well recently, a friend of mine was wearing the "Sensual" lotion, and it just gave me memories...but the scent was really really soothing. So I went back to Bath & Body Works looking for a sale or special but found none. Not long after I got my hands on some coupons, so I got the "Sleep" shower gel and lotion...Mmmm. I do believe in aromatherapy...I think it calms us down. Now before bed, I sometimes would spray a calming mist and I'm out like a light. It doesn't work with every single scent though...some scents will wake you up. But there is nothing like a warm bath with lavender and vanilla tones. I prefer a moisturizing bubble bath as opposed to bath salts...
I recently was in a wedding, so that moved me to buy MAC foundation. I really liked the coverage it gave me. I also bought some other MAC things...it's hard not to go over budget in that store! I think I'm at the beginning stages of a MAC junkie...the worst part of shopping at MAC is that it's such a guilty pleasure, you walk away with the guilt of how spending more than you wanted to. I still use my Bare Escentuals makeup. It feels really light and you don't feel like you're clogging your pores with liquid paint. I like makeup...but really really like quality makeup.
I have a lot of stuff to do at home...it's annoying when you feel like you're cleaning some area for the hundredth time! Maintenance...it never ends. If there's people over, and I spot a dust bunny in the corner, I'm embarrassed. So I constantly go NUTS cleaning before I have visitors. I'm so weird because as much as I love a clean house, I lack motivation sometimes...but when I start doing it, I get on a roll and somehow find the energy. I don't mind vacuuming, but hate mopping. UGH. I have to go to Costco today to get some stock items, like toilet tissue and paper towels and pick up the dreaded 40lb kitty litter. Those darn cats better appreciate me. Plus I scoop their poop. All they do is make a mess in my house. When they fight, they leave hair chunks. On my counters I see their paw prints...it's like they rule my house!! Can't stand it anymore.
With all that said, I'm off to get some things done...I probably should pick up some "Stress Relief" products, ha.
