Hello readers! Today, I am officially introducing a new feature to my blog: guest posts! And who better to ‘cut the red ribbon’ then my dear friend, Amy Irene? (Doesn’t her name sound just like a song?) This girl has started a ministry in Uganda to help educate and care for the needs of the children there, and is also working on her English degree, with hopes of becoming a teacher. I am in awe of the fact that I am friends with such a warm, dynamic humanitarian.
I am a very practical girl – ever since I was little I always went for things that worked, and were cheap, not necessarily for beauty or just the sheer joy of being pampered once in awhile. However, as I get older I find more and more I head for the beautiful thing – just cause wearing it makes me feel nice, or the thing that I don’t really NEED, but that makes me feel pampered. I still am a very practical girl, but I also know that as a girl it’s good to pamper yourself once in a while and explore that feminine girly side. 🙂
So today I want to share with you a few of my “guilty pleasures” 🙂
# 1 – Body Spray from Bath and Body works – my current favorite scent is “Black Amethyst” from their “Sexy scents” collection. I never leave the house without spritzing it on – with it I know I smell beautiful, and smelling nice always gives you more confidence! 😉 I think a girl should always leave a subtle but memorable beauty scent behind her. 🙂#2 – Sensual Milk & Honey Body Butter from Deep Sea Cosmetics. My Dad surprised me with this one Christmas, knowing I get very dry hands in the Winter, he spent a bit of money, and got me this ultra pampering body butter. At first I thought it would probably be like many of the other hand creams I have tried in the past… And then I tried it! This is unlike any body lotion I have ever used! From the moment you dip your finger into it, it feels cool and smooth. It has a delightful scent that reminds me of coconuts and summer time. 🙂 I love to use this cream after I take a shower on my legs especially – leaves them feeling smooth and good. 🙂 Definitely on the top of my “Pamper me” list. 🙂
#3 – And last, but not least, my guilty pleasures TV show! Introduced to me by none other than Cathy herself!! 🙂 Pan Am! I normally watch a lot of investigation shows, like NCIS, and The Mentalist, which are definitely also two guilty pleasure shows that I love, but sometimes a girl gets tired of murders. 😉 I love all the characters of Pan Am, the time period it is set in, how they are stewardesses, and of course their outfits!! 🙂 My favorite character is Colette. She’s really sweet. 🙂
Well I hope you enjoyed reading about a few of the items on my “Guilty pleasures” list! 🙂 And many thanks to Cathy for inviting me to write for her blog! She has been a dear friend of mine for a while now, and has taught me a lot about pampering! 🙂 Love you dear!
Thank you so much for taking the time to be a guest on my blog, Amy! It was a great pleasure — and fun! ♥
