Good morning, everyone.
The first one was mango scented and for dry skin and you can really see the difference in the actual cream - the mango one is much thicker and needs massaging in whereas the rose one is much lighter in texture and disappears quickly into my skin.
I'm making great inroads into the mango hand cream and it's helping a lot. so, maybe, between using that, I can use the rose one. I'll see. But they are both products I am glad to use and, maybe, keep using.
And the scents are just lovely.
I didn't get to wash my hair yesterday so really must today so will see what the shea shampoo and conditioner are both like.
Yesterday really was a quiet and gentle day, so much so that I stayed in my pjs all day. I can't remember the last time I did that. I did get stuff done though - planning, lists, sorting out all my cruise paperwork into a folder, a bit of washing, a bit of ironing . . . little, useful things.
Without any spoilers, In Strictly, while I was saddened to see that particular person go, I felt it was right and also right that it was a split decision as it was really close.. Quite often there have been 'shock eliminations' through the weeks but this year, despite a few shocks regarding who was in the dance off, I felt the right choices were made. It was so close though and very emotional.
If you watch Strictly, what did you think?
I'm really looking forward to the final next Saturday now. It should be amazing, perhaps the best I can remember.
Today is quite busy but in a really nice way. I need to get my hair sorted, of course, to do a bit of general tidying up (nothing too bad), get tomorrow's dinner into the slow cooker, make lunch and generally faff around because my friend, Diane, is over mid-morning. Diane is my cruise friend and we had to cancel a get-together when I had that cold a fortnight ago. We want to go through everything and make sure we are both as ready as we can be as well as working out what we still need to get done.
It should be a lot of fun.
Later on, I will have a bit of ironing to do but that is about it.
A really nice day!
What is your day looking like?
Today's Blogmas music is another great favourite, Carol of the Bells. It is based on a Ukrainian folk song and is deceptively simple.
First, Libera's version:
. . . and now Pentatonix's interpretation, so totally different.
