From small beginnings come great things.

"The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective. Unless a man starts on the strange assumption that he has never existed before, it is quite certain that he will never exist afterwards. Unless a man be born again, he shall by no means enter into the Kingdom of Heaven."
G. K. Chesterton

life soundtrack<3

So I went to the lush store on Christmas eve to get gift cards for a few people and A strawberry massage bar for myself =x and the girl at the desk gave me two awesome sized samples of two different soaps I've been wanting to try "Rockstar" and "The godmother".....Needless to say I am going to buy huge chunks of both of these very soon. I wrote the websites discriptions of the products under them and they are DEAD on...except i think rockstar smells like cotton candy and the godmother smells like redvine, the perfect sugary sweet scent all GIRLS smell like of course <3

  • Made with fresh crushed strawberries for a sumptuous massage treat! Melt the cocoa and shea butter with your hands or rub it all over your sweetheart to make massaging go smoother. The delectable fragrance of strawberries mixed with hibiscus flower infusion will release for a sensual massage. It's especially wonderful after a shower with Yummy Yummy Yummy, our strawberry shower cream wash with the same delightful fragrance. It's like rolling in a feild of strawberries without the sticky mess...

  • The LUSH fairy godmother came and swooped her silver wand over our best-selling seasonal Snow Fairy shower gel, turning it into bar form and naming it after herself. In case you haven't smelled Snow Fairy, the scent is sweet like fruity pink candies. We'd just like to point out that it does not, however, taste like yummy candies; it tastes like soap.

  • If you are attracted to everything pink, you'll love our best-selling Rock Star soap. Sweet as rock candy, full of white soap stars and scented with vanilla absolute (used in flavouring cakes and ice creams), Rock Star is deliciously soft and creamy. Lather all over to smell of sweets for hours. This decadently rich bar is known to increase singing in the shower, so if you dream of attaining rock star status, best start here.

Oatmeal-Cinnamon Muffins...without the guilt ;)


  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  1. In a large bowl, combine oats and buttermilk; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in eggs. Combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and baking soda; stir into oatmeal mixture just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 400 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

P.S. You can add/sneak any fruit or nuts you'd like to these, I might even try shredded carrots next time <3
