frivilous post but I had to rant a lil!
I went to the body shop last week to pickup a little thank you for a friend at work who has given me rides home and just been a good buddy over the year, anyway , there was some lovely lotion that I tried while I was there, but it had SPARKLES in it.... okay fine I understand the excitement with sparkly body lotion if youre say , I dont know 12 years old!!!! So I proceed to the cosmetic counter at the department store to purchase my usual ralph - by ralph lauren , perfume and see they have a gift set for christmas so Im thinking okay merry christmas to me and I pick it up, only to find out that my beloved ralph lotion ALSO has these god forsaken sparkles in it!!! (noticed after I put it on after my shower) gee I'm kinda sparkly, whats up with this, so i read the box and see they added sparkles to it...okay find I get it , its trendy its cool but come on ....... I just wanted plain lotion that I could put on at work , now I'm gonna be the sparkliest nurse in toronto, my poor patients will think I'm going to a rave or something....geezus....
I am not anti sparkle, I love sparkles on cards (like the ones from allnurses buddies!) and on wrapping paper, and even a sparkly lil teeshirt here and there, but keep that stuff outta my body lotion! I understand to some it can be "sexy" looking , but if I want a man to be all turned on by my sparkly body I'll make him use some sparkly body paint on me or something
