Full Day & Flower Ink

on March 9, 2013

Wow, what a full day. I’m ready to curl up with a book and go to bed early.

I sort of slept in, which means later than 8:00. I had plans to meet friends at the mall at 11. Before that I got in breakfast and a fast paced 35 minutes on the treadmill.

Shopping was fun. I never used to say that but moving easily around the mall adds positive energy to the experience. First we spent time trying out different cosmetics at Sephora. Then these friends introduced me to Lush. Natural, lovely bath salts, oils, bubble bath and soaps. Plus creams and beauty products.

I’m hooked on these products. I bought some bath salts, a cinnamon bar good for rubbing on sore muscles, and ocean salt which is a lovely softening scrub.

When I go to product stores that have samples and testers, I’m like Alice in Wonderland consuming unknown stuff just because it says Drink Me. So when I saw the tooth tabs that said they were good for cleaning teeth and freshening breath and the had bold Try Me stickers, I did.

Right after I popped the mint wasabi sample in my mouth the staff said, “you didn’t just try one, did you? We usually don’t recommend them.”. Around the foaming, not great substance in my mouth, I said, “then why are they right at the register with a Try Me sticker?”

The staff very nicely let me rinse mouth out and spit in their sink. Oh well, the other products are great!

Lunch with even more friends followed. Then a quick trip to another store where I found a great black dress for an evening event at a bargain price!

Shopping complete, we were off to the tattoo parlor to meet Steve and get my ink.

Here’s the new tattoo. The skin is still irritated but it’s pretty and will get even more so. The design is the common meadow/wood violet which is the state flower of NJ- my home state. The notes beneath are the opening to Thunder Road.


I really like the artist and asked if he would recolor my other tattoo. It looks much better now.

A quick visit to Target for various items and I was beat. I had a great day and am now ready to end it on a good, relaxed note. One funny irony. Those great new bath salts will go unused for a little while. I can’t soak the new tattoos for two weeks!

    Love the new ink! I want to get a new one, but I need to make the time to do it.

    Sephora is a dangerous place to go shopping! My husband knows that the smaller the Sephora bag, the more money I spent. He’s on to me!
