Fancy soaps

Fancy Soaps from TJ Maxx


I want to use this short easy-breezy post to segue back into the blogging routine now that my first semester of graduate school has come to an end.  Just some minor edits left on a group project, then no deadlines for a solid month.  This post was actually drafted way the heck back at the start of the Fall semester.  Even though I like to keep things recent and somewhat spontaneous, I'll just go ahead and finish this one because I like the bright colors.  They'll cheer me up in these dark, short days of winter.  Aren't you glad the world didn't end?

I tell you, TJ Maxx is one of the best places to pick up fancy, large bars of soap for around $4 or $5. The scents are amazing.  The packaging is special.  I started using the yellow (lemon) one a few days ago and the size is just - - - sitting on my shower caddy, it reminds me of a submarine. A  ♪ yellow   submarine. It suds up amazingly rich and foamy.

My goals for this month are to finish up some new sketches - the ones I have here are so old.  I also want to read some good books, possibly even one or two school-related ones if I can find them.  I also of course want to blog.  The question is what to blog about.  I actually feel rusty!  While I've really enjoyed trying out the expository writing style necessary for beauty/skincare products, I know this break will feel so short, and I've really missed having time to draw, sketch, doodle, so I would love to focus more on that this month.  We'll see how that goes.  Something about sharing the products you've tried is so instantly gratifying, and 'easy' ... in a way.  


Potential Topics :

1) Completed drawings
2) A follow up review of the Clarisonic Mia 2 
3) A really great lavender oil
4) DIY manicure progress & tips 
5) Outfits of the day (OOTD) 






Another exciting update is, I finally got a smartphone!  Yayyyy a phone with a camera!  ^_^

Also moving into a new apartment in about a week.  Same general area, just a few blocks closer to the subway, always helpful for those grey, rainy Mondays.

Have a good Christmas!  I am looking forward to all the cheery holiday Instagrams.  And food pics!
