Tiffany's Treat

... we look in on Ooh La Frou Frou girl Tiffany
enjoying a day in the city.

On this particular beautiful, sunny day,
Tiffany finds herself walking miles and miles
 as she drops in at her favorite boutiques ...
(with a stop in between to meet the girls for lunch
and a little girl-talk ... of course!).
She then walks miles and miles
on her way back home
(with repeated stops, as she thinks of
just one more place to go) ...

By the time she says hello to the doorman of her building,
turns the key to her apartment and
sets her bags down just inside the door,
she sighs, thoroughly exhausted
(although oh-so-very-excited about her purchases!).

Nothing sounds better to Tiffany
than a relaxing evening at home ...
grabbing a handful of magazines
and the novel she picked up today,
turning on some ocean sounds,
lighting a spa candle,
sliding into a silky tub with a moisturizing mask and
her new exfoliating scrub.
She longs to close her eyes and
pretend she's on a tropical vacation,
imagining french doors flung open to the sound of the sea.

Tiffany adores evenings like this ...
She'll order up some Chinese take-out after her bath,
and finish her day watching a good movie and
painting her nails with a new spring lavender nail polish.

If you love any word that starts with "spa" too,
you may want to drop in on
a fun little place called
Art of the Spa ~ Nesting for Nirvana
to find a variety of ways to add a little more
spa-atmosphere to your life ...
You'll find fun things there such as:
a recipe for "Spatinis"
"DIY Spa Treats"
"Spa-Decorating Ideas"
"Spa Music"
and more!

Are you wondering what our title
"Tiffany's Treat"
is about today?
Well ... it's partly because
Tiffany loves to treat herself,
as with her luxurious at-home spa evening ...
and partly because she's not quite finished with her shopping ...
she'll be purchasing a little something from
Margarita Bloom
and having it sent to
one of our Glamorous Girlfriends!

Margarita Bloom
is a very fun, retro-feeling
on-line bath and body boutique
with lots of beautifully-packaged, skin-quenching,
sweet-smelling body goodies
made of wholesome, natural organic ingredients such as
shea butter, milk, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla beans.
All of these delicious-sounding products
are gathered together in
absolutely scrumptious categories such as "The Bakery" ...

Here are a few of the yummy "Bakery" items  ... adorably delicious, no?

Then there's "Martini's in Manhattan" category ... (those are always fun) ...

These are the "Margarita Bloom" version of Martinis:
They just make a girl glow!

For that tropical beach fantasy, like Tiffany had, there's "Beach Bonita" ...

Where is that cabana boy, anyway?
Oh cabana boy, could you send over some
Brazilian Grapfruit Lovely Lotion and a side of
Maui Mango Papaya Sea Salt Bath Soak ...
pretty please?
... and for the sweetest kisses,
we might need a little
Carlotta Colada lip balm,
Beach Bonita Kisses Cherry lip balm or
Balmy Nights Coconut lip balm ...

If you've been watching old movies, you might find yourself in an
"Old Hollywood Glam" kind of mood!

The Little Miss Perfect Pout Lip Exfoliator
and soaking for a while in the Pinktini Bath Soak
would leave us a little more ready for that movie audition!

Those are but a few of the luscious items you'll find at
Margarita Bloom!

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Christel@Captivatedbyimage:Thank you, sweetie pie! A few of the lovelies that have left comments have thought that the illustrations of the city and bath scene are cards too, but they're actually just illustrations made specifically for the blog ... the three spring cards at the bottom of the post are the most recent card introductions. I assume those are the cards you were speaking of ;) Thanks so much for stopping by, doll! Your photography is absolutely gorgeous! xoxo
