Oh no! Am I turning into a Lushie?

I went shopping yesterday to get some necessary items and look at new things. It's the "look at new things" I'll talk about here.

I mentioned the other day that I'm thinking of covering the gray hairs, and I've been reading about Lush's henna. What I didn't know is that Lush has a store at Lenox Square, and it's conveniently only 2 or 3 doors down from Aveda.

I've seen Lush mentioned in magazines before, and truthfully I've not paid that much attention. I also find sometimes when I'm checking out new hair or skin care, it can be overwhelming when you go into the store and know next to nothing about the products. Luckily, it was very early in the day, I was the only customer, so I could quiz the gal working there. I ended up leaving with a block of caca rouge, a small tub of Ocean Salt, I Love Juicy shampoo, and some freebies - a bath bomb and soap. And most importantly, she dropped the spring issue of their catalog into my bag (after asking if I wanted it.)

Ai yi yi! I haven't even tried the henna yet, but I want to go back and shop some more! They have non-aluminum deodorants and all sorts of fun sounding soaps to try. I really love that everything is made in small batches, and the whole company is environmentally sensitive.

Anyway, Keith was saying yesterday that if we won the lottery that I'd be a shopping fool. I argued that I wouldn't, because I really don't care about driving a Mercedes or carrying a designer purse. He said that I'd do just what I did yesterday, go several places and buy a little from each place. I'd just do it everyday. Hmm, maybe he's right.

In the meantime, I've got to work like mad to use up all the foot lotions and scrubs I already have. I really want to try Volcano, but I won't buy another until I've used up the Burt's Bee's, Queen Helene and whatever else I have.

Here I was thinking that since I was no longer working in a spa that I wasn't interested in skincare. I thought that yarn held my shopping affections. Apparently not.

As for knitting, not a whole lot of it going on this week. I keep thinking about it, just not doing too much of it. I think I'm getting geared up to start on the KALs I've signed up for this summer.

I love to take baths, and the bath bombs at LUSH are awesome! It's a great store, and definitely addictive. :)

I love Lush! I found them while I was in Chicago for Thanksgiving and them promptly looked up their Dallas location upon returning home. Give their lip balms a try, and I have to second the recommendation of their bath bombs.
