Boxing Day shopping

I checked my email last night and I got one from my (new) FAVOURITE store saying that they were having a Boxing Day sale. Every "holiday" item (let's be real, they're almost all Christmas-y) was buy one, get one free. The email mentioned that the sale was NOT going to be in stores, but I thought that was silly and was debating about buying all my stuff online. Then I started thinking...I'd have to pay for postage and handling (which goes by weight), and I'd end up not saving very much.

So, I called up my local Lush store and asked if they were having a sale. The saleslady replied "OH YEAH!" (she sounded a bit like the Koolaid guy before he smashes through a wall). I asked her if it was the same as the online sale and she said "no". As I started to feel a bit dejected, she then added "our sale is better!"

When I got to the till, she told me that the bath bombs weren't "buy one, get one free"...they were "buy one, get TWO free".

In the end I got eight bars of soap, six bath bombs, the four bottles of Snow Fairy, a bubble bath bar (and a partridge in a pear tree). Ahhh, I'm in heaven. :)

If you have a Lush store near you, don't walk...RUN for this sale. :)

I order from LUSH. It makes perfect presents for my wife - cause she's a big bedtime bath taker. And I just randomly click on the menu. We have no idea what stuff I actually ended buying for her.

I'm a freakin' LUSH fanatic! I found them several years ago when I was visiting Canada. I not only fell in love with Vancouver and Victoria but I fell in love with LUSH too. I have been mail ordering it but now we have one in our mall. I was hopping up and down with excitement when I saw they were moving in. You totally have to try the Brazilian Sand Stone soap. It makes for a great exfoliater, especially for the face!

Bath bombs are...the bomb!
