December Reflections Day 22 - Fragrant
I have no doubt that the creator of the December Reflections intended for this photo prompt to inspire a Christmassy picture... but for the love of life, nothing Christmassy jumped out at me today. So instead, I chose to feature my ultimate fragrant indulgence. Honestly, there is no better fragrance in the world, in my opinion, than Karma soap by Lush. It is The Bomb.
I initially heard about this soap on a blog I used to read. This woman raved on and on about Karma soap and, as I suffer terribly from FOMO (fear of missing out!) I decided that I had to get my hands on a bar of it. Now at the time there was not a Lush shop in South Africa, so getting some soap into my paw became a major challenge, but I am nothing if not up for a challenge and so the soap duly arrived in my post box. Well, it was not love at first sniff, surprisingly. I don't know what I was expecting, but it was NOT this fragrance. Frankly, I was a little disappointed, but that was until I actually showered with the stuff.... and then the love affair began.
You see, underneath this matronly exterior there lies a happy, hidden, hippy and the fragrance of this soap channels that rather bohemian, inner-me perfectly. There will never be another fragrance that is more genuinely me. I honestly can't describe how much I love this smell. It is my heroin!
For years I have wheeled and dealed and begged and pleaded and almost flipping prostituted myself to get my fix of my Karma... Really, I have bribed the aunts of friend's friends and the fathers of my daughter's friend's cousins, and anyone else I can possible get to agree, to procure my Karma soap and bring it back to South Africa for me. But I don't have to humble myself that way anymore, because the gods have smiled on me and a Lush store has finally opened down the road in Gateway. Hallelujah!
And, no, Lush didn't sponsor me to wax lyrical like this, it was all my own doing :-)
I am busy ruminating on an updated bucket list - it's a lot more difficult than one would think! The last time I created a bucket...
