Cheap Thrills: Splurge.
October 26, 2010 § 2 Comments
Oh hello, blog world. I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting you sorely over the last month or so… I’ve been up to my ears in wedding madness. I’ll try to jump back on the bandwagon here, and maybe even use my Fridays to show you bits and pieces of wedding planning love. But for today, as it is Tuesday, we’re cheap-thrilling it up.
I confess that this cheap thrill breaks the rules. It sort of annihilates the rules, really, at over three times my promised budget of $5 (hey, I’m planning a wedding… going over budget is what I’m supposed to do, right? 😉 ). But it’s one of my absolute favorite fall things, and I have to pitch it to you. Ladies and gents, meet my daily guilty fall pleasure:
Cinnamon Buns by Philosophy. Oh how I ❤ this body wash/shampoo/bubble bath. It’s like bathing in a bakery. It smells so darn edible that they suggest it not be used by children since they are likely to wind up eating. I’d caution adults: you too may wind up trying to eat this stuff. I can assure you with confidence that it tastes like soap. Don’t bother.
Anyway, once a year in early October, I treat myself to a bottle of this yummy scented stuff. It’s one of my very favorite fall rituals, and if you are feeling a bit splurgy, I highly recommend it. I usually make the bottle last through February, so really, that’s a lot of bang for your 16 bucks. Bonus points if you use the recipe on the bottle to actually make cinnamon buns.
You can get some at Sephora, or online through Amazon or Drugstore.com. Or, if you’re Rachelle, Shannon, or Kevin, you can find some in our shower. Have at it. 🙂
