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!
My girls are well aquainted with LUSH's products - the magic wand is always a bathtime hit - so when a box full of goodies arrived it was all I could do to hold them Read more [...]

I often say that if only I could give up sleep - or harness the energy of a toddler or preschooler - then I could rule the world. Like every mom I know, there just aren't enough hours in the day to do everything that I wish I could.

Unfortunately that's not Read more [...]
