Things I love Thursday
Ok, so more like Lush Things I'd like to try Thursday ;)
  • Lush Happy 4 SAD

    Mandarin, grapefruit and neroli brighten gloomy outlooks

    Happy 4 SAD is a cheery shower gel for everyone who doesn't get enough sunshine; this includes those who work under fluorescent lights in malls and offices. Refreshing mandarin oil, anti-depressant grapefruit oil and soothing rose oxymel bring sunshine to your body. We also add in neroli oil, the one that's been proven to induce euphoria. On days when you don't want to get up and go to work, take a shower with Happy 4 SAD and drift away on a cloud of orange-scented vapor.

  • Lush Ghost shower gel

    Spiritually uplifting & shimmery – limited time

    Let the scent of this beautiful, floral shower gel lessen your fears of the supernatural. Made with rose and dove orchid infusions, Ghost first made an appearance in 2007 and now it's back to haunt us. Translucent, lovely and only around for a moment, Ghost merits a photograph or no one will believe it really existed. All that will remain is soft skin and the fragrance of lilies.

  • Lush Let Them Eat Cake lip balm

    or kissable lips as sweet as cake

    Orange and lemons, currants and sultanas, vanilla, sherry and treacle. This must be the tastiest lip balm on the planet. As you can imagine it can be quite tricky for vegans to find lovely products, but at LUSH it's quite easy. Except in the lip balm department, where all our 2008 products were vegetarian but not vegan. Many of our vegan friends and co-workers have a great fondness for cake (vegan of course). So when Helen and Noriko blended our new vegan lip balm base, Helen decided to make it cake flavoured. So now everyone's quite happy.

OH NINE Resolutions!

OH NINE Resolutions!
  • Try cross country skiing (never done it before despite the fact I grew up in CO!!) I know, gasp
  • Go snowmobiling
  • Start a reading log for the books I have read
    Here is an idea

  • Take a cooking class with Tato
    Williams Sonoma

  • Get rid of old clothes and shoes I never wear and start figuring out what style I'd like: Start a scrapbook & fill it with images, words & ideas to keep inspired. Keep a list of "must haves" outside closet for easy shopping.
  • Create a new Budget
    Wamu has a nice fill in budget calculator I like to use or Microsoft templates for downloadable fun!
  • Have a personal date once a week: Go to a movie, eat an amazing meal, go for a long meandering walk or have a candlelit bubble bath. Just take time out for you. Regularly.
  • Write a letter to the one person you allowed to make 2008 more difficult than it needed to be. Be as angry & vicious as you like, but when you’re done, burn it or tear it into little pieces.
  • Learn to use Photoshop like an almost-pro (YouTube has cute little sessions, but I am at work so I will add the link later)
  • Get active, get physical 3 times a week. Sign up for a class!
    Lifetime Fitness is having a little deal right now for a free month if you sign up for one of their packages, oodles of fun classes there.
    I also got The Wedding Workout the other day, loads of fun
What others should I add? What are your resolutions?
