The Skinny: MMM Melting Marshmallow Moment from LUSH

Well isn't that a mouthful.  Tonight I'm reviewing one of the many Lush goodies I was gifted (surprisingly) tonight after a random State Street Macy's trip.  Erick is seriously, seriously, seriously the best.  And if all of y'all have never heard of Lush, I suggest you not online visit their site, but go walk into one of their stores.  I kid you not- it's like being an adult in a candy store.  The smells are overpowering, but not in a Yankee Candle kind of way... more like a yummy bath things kind of way.  I'll be honest in saying most men would rather not enjoy this journey, but your woman will definitely love you even more if you treat her to some Lush every once and a while.  Just saying.

So on to the marshmallow magical goodness.  This pinkish cupcake adorable little guy is about a $6 indulgence.  And while that is a little steep for a one-use, you could easily take a butter knife to him and get 2-3 baths instead.  This is from Lush's line of bath melts.  Note: these do not make bubbles, they only have yummy smells and moisturizing properties.  I combined mine with a bath bomb (fizzy) so it could go the extra distance.  I loved it.  Skin was super soft and not overbearingly fragranced.  Did I mention I love Lush?  Seriousy.  After spending the first, like... 20 years of your life taking ONLY baths, you grow fond of that relaxing nighttime ritual.  When I lived in the dorms at college I absolutely despised taking showers.  Especially public showers.  I wore flip flops and everything.  Ack.  

Anyway, I hope you all visit Lush sometime soon and have the chance to pick one of these up.  This is not the first Lush product I plan on reviewing, so if you're a fan, stay tuned.  I have a lot more goodies to show you.  Till next time...

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El Niño weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Made It To Another Weekend : The Table

Oh, weekend. We are so happy you're here. It's been a doozy lately. I won't put you through the pitiful details, don't worry-- but I'm just happy to exhale a little bit and am welcoming these days of togetherness with open arms. PS- look at me using unfiltered iPhone photos in a blog post. Who am I? Sometimes I don't even recognize myself. Truly a measure of just how exhausted I really am both mentally and physically ;)

And while I've been seriously down and out in every other area of my life, we've actually been doing some pretty cool things at home. I'm so proud of Sofia and her desire to soak up new information, to learn, and to think of me as a pretty cool "teacher". I'm so in awe of everything she does. But this is all part of the inevitable fact that these kiddos of ours are growing up. 
Most days we'll do some kind of worksheet, practicing our letters and cutting skills and getting to color.... other days we'll just spe…
