Pimping

While I like to post things from the web that are interesting, I very rarely pimp anything that I've personally bought and used. So I'm going to break with tradition and tell ya'll about a couple of things I bought at Libellezomerweek.

Last year, they had a Lush booth, and while I balked at the prices, I kicked myself for the rest of the year for passing up a chance to wallow in their Honey, I Washed the Kids soap. It smelled like something you'd want to take a bite out of; honey and caramel.



I'd been fantasizing about buying this soap since last spring, so I was disappointed when I discovered that this year, there was no Lush booth.

But I found Sabon instead. And once I'd sniffed a few samples, cheerfully forked out a ridiculous amount of money for some of this:



Butter Cream. OHMIGOD. This stuff is amazing! I got both the Ginger/Orange scent, which reminds me of Creamsicles; and the Lavender/Apple, which just sort of smells clean and Spring-like. My skin is silky smooth, there's no greasy feel, and I swear my wrinkles are retreating. :c)

Then, I went and bought hand and foot cream at the Rituals booth, and again, while it was fairly costly, it was worth the price. The hand cream is nice, but since my hands aren't all that dry, I didn't really notice any outstanding results. My lizard-like feet, however, have now become like kitten's paws, only minus the fur. It smells like basil and mint, and really make a huge difference. So I'm going to recommend that anyone with croc skin on their feet give this a try.

Check out the Halloween edition of The Battered Suitcase. I think you'll be glad you did.



My favorite story was Tricks for Treats, by Milan Smith.

For those of you who enjoy quality short stories, poetry, and artwork, please check out the latest offering from Vagabondage Press, the July 2008 edition of The Battered Suitcase. I think you'll be pleased with what you find there. :c)

Pimpage!

I'm frankly surprised that there is so little interest in the [livejournal.com profile] alec_hopkins community. Or is that no one knows that it exists?

Well, I'm hoping to fix that. ;c)
