New Year, new paint?

I heard a saying the other day that how you ring in the New Year is how your year will go.  Our New Year's Eve was spent with our girls, attempting to watch a movie - apparently we weren't the only people trying to stream a movie because we had to give up - and painting a feature wall in our dining room.  I've got the 'freshening up the house' bug so I think that saying may be true for us!

Add some FUN to your stocking with LUSH

I've been a LUSH addict for years now, ever since my university years when one of my roommates started working at the Byward Market store and I was introduced to their bubble bars.  Once you get used to the amazing scents and mountains of bubbles that are a standard LUSH feature it's hard to go back to the drugstore bubble baths!
