I love me some stuff...

I am a phase kind of girl. I go through these strange phases with everything in my life. For six months I'll drink the same Starbucks drink then something will catch my eye, I'll try it and that will be my new fave. There was also a Gatorade in there somewhere.

The same for products. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by smells. I get tired of everything having a scent. Really, think about it. You take a shower. You use shampoo, conditioner, soap for my pits and girly stuff, then body wash. You get out, dry off, apply deodorant, slather on the lotion and probably apply some styling product. Then you finish with a spray of something, cologne, perfume, whatever. Hello! How many smells?

So I go all anti-smells sometimes and do unscented everything. Other times I am obsessed with finding a new perfume. My point? Yeah right, my point. I thought it might be fun to tell you all the stuff I am really "into" at this particular moment. Don't hold me to this tomorrow ...

1) All Natural Chapstick- It is light on you lips but has this amazing sweetish buttery smell. I was slathering it on in the car and told my husband "I'd bathe in it if I could." He gave me this look, the same one he gave me when I told him I liked to pretend that Jason Mraz was singing to me whenever I heard the song "You and I both." (I still love that song too, so there.)

2) Buttermilk Bath Soak- It smells so good but doesn't leave you smelling crazy strong. I got two pints for Christmas and one is half gone. I love a bath before bed.

3) Sensual Amber- Ok, this probably is strange, because Bath and Body stuff is usually just too sweet and too smelly, but this reminds me of my favorite sexy perfume, Chance. I love that perfume but it is so rich smelling, I only wear it when I am going out and dressed up. Two things that rarely happen and almost never happen together. So when I smelled Sensual Amber I loved that it was a lotion that I didn't feel strange wearing at home in yoga pants, carrying a baby on my hip.

4) Mint Mojito Orbit- this gum is delish and helps keep your teeth feeling sqeaky clean. Just don't get in the tub after a two year loses his gum in it!

So that's enough for today. Maybe I'll continue with my essential baby stuff next. Oh and for those of you wondering about my favorite Starbucks drink right now, and I know you were. Iced Passion Tea. I am trying to lighten up on the caffeine for the sake of my baby girl. She prefers non-coffee flavored boobie milk.

Just one more thing. It is De-lurking week, so stop in and say Hi! Holla!

Justin has me hooked on Soy Chai Tea Latte's... but my all time fave is the 'Grande Decaf 2 pump vanilla soy latte." I need to lay off of them though... I want to drop another 5lbs...

I got a new lotion from Bath and Body Works for Christmas. It's called Sweet Pea. Yeah, the name kinda throws you, but it smells great, not overpowering at all.

Hi, I wanted to comment even before you said quit lurking. You are on my list of favorite blogs to read. My comment was: 1st what you said about all the scents. I lost my sense of smell over 10 years ago. Imagine a scent free world. It isn't all that wonderful. 2nd Long before I lost my sense of smell, allergies drove me to use unscented detergent, toliet tissue, deoderant,etc. There are only a few shampoos, soaps, etc. that I can use when scented.
Oh, and I always have to ask how my house smells when I have people over. This morning I had a meeting, I burned candles before everyone arrived. I have a cat and I try really hard not to have a house that smells like I have a cat. But how would I know. I ask Papa Bear when he's around. Sorry this is so long.

I too am a big fan of the Natural Chapstick and have it on right now!
I also went through a B&B phase and have now switched out to almost all natural, less scented products.
Can't give up my Vicky's Secret Sexy Shampoo though.
