Here’s a new one:
34. I have undeniable proof that my sweetheart man uses the fireplace mantle as a vanity and shrine to delectable French soap.
One thing about my sweetheart man is that he doesn’t like to ask for things. I myself have a new
-vice- and that is treating my 40-something -old- young skin to a good skin care regimen. In my younger years, I either didn’t have time, funds or inclination to really make this a priority. Now, I want to work on getting my complexion to be the best it can be and look as healthy as possible.
The week before our wedding, when things were their craziest, I planned for some “time out” events for my sweetheart man and I. One of those was mini-facials, done at a local boutique, and for free, I thought what a bargain! What I didn’t realize was that I was going to be hooked on the products that were used on me.
My man looked at me, freshly washed and moisturized and said, “You look luminous.”
I said to the boutique manager, without missing a beat, “I’ll take two of everything you put on my skin!”
Then, I thanked him!!
Now, it was his turn – and boy did his skin glow – it took years off his face to get the dry skin scrubbed off and the healthy glow returned. He looked relaxed and rejuvenated, my handsome groom-to-be! It took some prying and eventually a conference in the hall, but he grudgingly admitted that he felt as good as he looked.
So now, I am a L’Occitane fan – not so unusual for a woman, I suppose. I have an investment of “potions and ungents” as my sweetheart man calls my “product system”.
However, there was an awesome sale, and so I bought some of his core facial product at 33% off in triplicate (times two). He loves these so much, he has these stacked on the mantle above the fireplace, next to his computer desk area. Oh no, these are not on a darkened bathroom or closet shelf, these are now part of the furnishings! Until they see the suds of day, one day, that is their ritualistic destiny….
Let us join together in our L’Occitane fandom!
