Breakfast at Bay Street

[1] Overview of items: five purchases and three samples.
[2] Te'o Solid Deodorant: I am so obsessed with the smell of this, which is tea tree and lemongrass.
[3] Black Stockings Solid Body Tint: a subtle, but effective, self tanner.
[4] Pumice Power Foot Soap: I've been seriously slacking on foot care.
[5] Scrubee Body Butter: I've seen people buy ten of these in one go, so I had to try it.
[6] Samples: Plum Rain Shower Gel, Dark Angels Cleanser, Toothy Tabs in Bling! and Limelight.
[7] Ayesha Face Mask: My second go-to, after Love Lettuce.
[8] I stuck within my $50 budget!

My mental state is still the equivalent of watching paint dry. I have things to do, but after I get back from class, all I'm capable of is going to sleep, eating dinner, and then going back to sleep. I'm frustrated because I have no idea what to do about it. The only things I do are things I'm obligated to do. Tomorrow I have an interview, and I need to restock on groceries. I'm going to try to keep it strictly to groceries so I don't end up buying a ton of snacks to binge on.

When I'm not binge eating, I'm binge shopping. I found out that I won the scholarship I applied to, so I have some financial flexibility, even if the award doesn't transfer to my account right away. Last Saturday, I took a trip to Lush to treat myself and hopefully reset after everything that's happened lately (it didn't work, but it was still nice). We all have that place to go to when things get tough, and honestly, Lush just cleans my soul. There are so many products that I haven't used yet, but I'm more or less already addicted. If I were a dragon, I'd hoard Lush products.

A gloomy Saturday morning meant a really empty Lush shop. The nice part is I felt like I had plenty of time to browse around and chat with the sales assistant to check out some of the less well known products. I originally only needed the Love Lettuce face mask, but they didn't have any because of sourcing issues, so to make up for it I ended up picking a few items that I wouldn't have thought to try before. I tried to go for products with niche functions so I wouldn't have too many repeat products, but I also had to go for some of the new, highly recommended spring products. Overall, I'm more than satisfied with my Lush collection now, and from here on out, I expect I'll only need to restock on old favorites that I've run out of. Unfortunately, I still do not have a usable tub, but I went all out with a self care spa night anyway.
