We got three packages this week! Always exciting. The first was our order from Lush - some natural solid shampoos and a conditioner since I realized I wasn't happy with the ingredients in my current shampoo. 

I chose to try the Jumping Juniper shampoo because it is supposed to target oily hair, and, well, it was purple. I was surprised at how much lather I got out of it this morning! So far so good! 

This is the Dr. Peppermint shampoo for Ross - I picked it out because in the description it said it was "for those who have noticed a certain upward advancement in the forehead department." I think he was slightly offended. =( 

Then we are sharing the Jungle solid conditioner - which I really didn't like when I was trying to use it. I felt like I couldn't really get it into my hair - but after some lathering, slathering in my hair, and rinsing, I was surprised at how soft my hair feels! So, I think I like it. Ross doesn't - but I think he is just not as into this as me as well. 

The is the Coalface Cleanser which is meant to target oily skin - and I have seen a slight decrease in oil over the 2 days I've been using it, it hasn't been anything miraculous, yet. It had good reviews, so I'm going to keep using it for a while and see how it goes. I'm optimistic! 

The second package was this book - Poisoned - that Food Safety News sent me (FOR FREE!!!) when I subscribed to their blog! Can't wait to start reading it. In my spare time. Hah. 
What's cool is that a fellow CLU alum is writing for them now - Rock on Alli! 

And the third and final package from from my friend Michelle (another awesome CLU alum) in DC - a bazillion mini LaraBars and a sweet get-well card! SO AWESOME! LaraBars are Gluten, soy and dairy-free, vegan, non-gmo, from Denver and delicious! Thank you Michelle! 

I got the Lemon bar, Peanut Butter Cookie, and Cashew Cookies. The two nutty ones were my favorite! 

I love mail. Do you still write and send letters? 
My roommate from college - Megs -  is my most faithful pen-pal.

I still try to send "real mail" every once in a while.

Poor Ross and his upward advancement of his hairline.

I've been meaning to try Lush products for awhile - there are actually some brick and mortar stores here in Budapest. Especially shampoo - who needs all that packaging, right?

@Krystal Krystal - it would be so fun to be able to actually go to the store! There isn't one very close by. And you're right - I am loving the decreased packaging!
