My LUSH addiction

Last July, kitschparade introduced me to LUSH; specifically, the Vancouver store. The phrase I use to describe them is: "if Willy Wonka made soap, it'd be LUSH". They have bar soap, yes, but also bath bombs, and shampoo, and moisturizer and facial cleanser and bubble bath and and and...

And it's all such lovely stuff; a celebration of the senses. I purchased about four things that first trip, but I was hooked. Fortunately the two closest stores were each 2.5 hours away. Then they opened up just across the water in Bellevue. That was the beginning of the end for me. And then they started giving away their holiday stuff when you bought $n worth....

I think I'm addicted to LUSH, and I'm only half joking when I say that. Here's my current stash, in three parts.

Long story short, I'm cutting down. I'm going to sell or swap a good chunk of that, and I'm not buying anything I don't totally love.
