With all the walking I’ve done in Disneyworld and all the walking I know that will happen in New York, I’d thought it would be essential to book a spa at New York City’s Lush Spa. If you’ve been on here before, you’d know I love using Lush products and I often use it at home as a treat. So of course I’d be down to have someone use a bunch of Lush products on me while feeling relaxed.
My forehead is having another “screw you whitney” phase and it’s breaking out faster than me running for free food. Last year (which is already more than four months ago) I received the Philosophy Clear Days Ahead collection. I’ve been trying it long enough to write a review that I feel comfortable about. I rarely use everything from one collection so it was neat to have this experience; and my breakouts are active enough that this line aligned with my skincare problems.

I have an exciting post on the Mary Kay winter makeup collection, but there are also some really nice gift sets for the mother/teacher/friend!

A few years ago, if you asked my friends to describe me, they’ll probably say “grandma.” In my early 20’s (yes I feel that old now,) I was the odd one out ordering hot water in restaurants and drinking tea at night, while everyone had great alcohol tolerance and didn’t get stomache pains like I did. I would have Tiger Balms and some kind of Chinese medicine oil in my purse (I still do,) for any ache or illness I’d get on the spot. Now, aromatherapy and essential oils are more widely used and I have no shame in offering my coworker some of my white chrysanthemum oil like offering my snacks. Essential oils have many benefits and I have three types of oils to share from Thursday Plantation: Tea Tree Oil, Lavender Oil, and Eucalyptus Oil! [Read more…]
