LUSH Cosmetics and I have had a love affair going on since that fateful meeting in 2004 at their store inside of Toronto Pearson International Airport. I’d read about LUSH in one of my magazines a few months before and was intrigued, so to see a shop in person…to smell all of the luscious deliciousness inside…it was an amazing time, to say the least!

I was on vacation recently and happened upon a LUSH store down on Front Street in Lahaina (on the island of Maui…Hawaii). I had to stop and buy a few things. I HAD TO. It was calling me. How it knew my name, I’ll never know.

What goodies threw themselves into my basket?

The Rosie gift box, for starters. I love the smell of roses, and I am madly in love with the smell of LUSH’s Rose Jam. Madly. Never mind that I’m still upset with LUSH for taking away their Rose Jam Gorilla Perfume. Yes, it was a limited edition. And yes, I am thankful for one of my best sister friends who sent me two bottles of this gorgeous fragrance! Really should have stocked up on it when I had the chance, but I digress.

Back to the Rosie box. It comes with a Rose Jam Bubbleroon (one of my favorites!), Rose Queen Bath Bomb, Amandopondo Bubble Bar, and a small tub of Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner.

(I thought I had a separate photo of the bubbleroon! Clearly I do not. I don’t know what happened!)

And then, for good measure, I bought another Rose Jam Bubbleroon, and two of my other all-time favorites – King of Skin and Buffy. Remember when Buffy was called Buffy the Backside Slayer? Those were good days! :D I didn’t take photos of KoS or Buffy before I threw them in the freezer, but if you’re not familiar with them, you can take a look at them over at LUSH Cosmetics!

Yes, I’m already planning out what I want to buy during the After Christmas Sale. I am not ashamed.
