I was at the Avenues when I noticed they had a Sale going on over at The Body Shop. It was around closing time, but I still managed to take some photos and grab a few things. I tried my best to put names and prices to everything. If there are any mistakes, I apologize (let me know in the comments and I’ll fix it). The NEW ITEMS (not included in the Sale) are all the way at the bottom of this post. To my understanding, the Sale usually lasts for an entire month which according to my calculations is August 20. So if anything catches your fancy, you’ve still got a few days to go pick it up. Hope you enjoy this post!
Diamancel was founded in 1994 by Ginette Godbout, a professional in the beauty business for 30 years. Specializing in manicures and pedicures, she was frustrated with the lack of high-end tools available in her industry. She researched the diamond, inspired by its durability, in hopes of creating the ultimate filing instrument that would become the ‘Rolls Royce‘ of all mani/pedi essentials.
Feet. At best, they can look “healthy” (I’d never call feet pretty) but when neglected feet can get pretty gnarly. Growing up, I noticed that some people’s second toe was longer than their big toe (especially my cousins). For a time, that made me think I was a freak for having a big toe that’s longer than my second toe. I also noticed that my siblings had chubby looking feet with completely different nail-beds in comparison to mine. For the record, my siblings are skinny but have chubby feet (think along the lines of cherub feet, all fleshy and cute) whereas I am actually over-weight (plus-size, etc…) but my feet are not chubby in the least. My younger brother teased me about it once saying they all had cute chubby feet whereas mine were ugly. Obviously I had to respond so I made something up about how people with feet that looked like mine (not chubby) can be foot models (model footwear), as opposed to people with chubby feet. I was only making it up but my older sister said that it was in fact true, shocking both my younger brother and I. Just to be clear, I was only joking around because as far as I’m concerned, feet are feet. They just get you from point A to point B. That said, the way feet look can tell you a lot about a person. As a matter of fact, it’s one of the first things I notice in a person; the state of their shoes and if visible, their feet. The state of someone’s feet (and by extension, their shoes) lets me know whether this person is big on grooming and hygiene or if it’s all just for show. As for myself, before I got calluses, I used The Body Shop Peppermint Foot Scrub together with a pumice stone regularly, to maintain my feet. I believe the act of painting one’s toes is the epitome of femininity but I’m pretty much hopeless when it comes to painting my nails so I go for the occasional pedicure instead which is actually a nightmare because I can’t stand it when anyone touches my feet as I get tickled very easily (to this day).
It’s no secret that I love experimenting with bath (read: shower) products almost as much as I love playing around with my makeup so I was delighted to pick up a few random bath/shower tools from the Salwa branch of Sultan Center.
I hadn’t been to Bath and Body Works in a long time so I went a little crazy at the semi-annual sale which happens twice a year (once mid-summer, and again mid-winter). A lot of things were 50% off which made me feel dumb for spending x amount through out the year. If you are a normal person who purchases a few things from them, every now and then, I think thats fine but when you’re an addict like me, it really starts to add up. That said, some of the things I purchased this time were also not on sale (I never learn, lawl).
