A conversation Cindy and I had the other day:
CINDY: Remember those crazy cat people I lived with for a semester?
ME: No. What makes you say they were crazy cat people?
CINDY: Well, they just had SO MANY CATS.
ME: How many?
ME: Three cats is still perfectly acceptable.
CINDY: Three cats is a lot of cats!
ME: No way, man! But that third cat is the gateway cat, for sure. That’s the cat that opens the door to those crazy high numbers of cats, like 17. But if you don’t cross over to that fourth cat, you’re still safe.
LOL! Yes, I’ve given this a lot of thought, said the crazy cat lady in her cat-print robe…
The boutique-y hotel we’ve been staying at in La Jolla, the Hotel La Jolla, has a pretty funky style. Instead of regular white plush terry robes in the room, they have robes with fun animal prints! Of course I chose the cheetah for my post-surf shower lounging.
After a long day of paddling, falling and flopping around awkwardly on a surfboard, there’s nothing like a long, hot shower and a cheetah-print robe…
I brought some of my favorite drugstore bath and body products on this trip, including Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser.
My combination oily/dry/indecisive skin loves the stuff. It removes whatever kind of makeup I’m wearing without me having to use too be a beauty bodybuilder, and it never leaves my skin feeling dry, tight or like it’s covered by a film.
Also from Neutrogena, their Rainbath Shower and Bath Gel, is one of my old-school favorites. I’ve been using it since college, and it was one of my biggest indulgences. It’s only $7.99 now, sometimes less on sale, and it was probably even less back then.
I like it because it gets my skin squeaky clean and doesn’t leave a residue behind. I can also use it as a shave gel, which is nice, and it doesn’t clog up my razor.
It’s humid out here being so close to the ocean, and the last thing I want is to feel a heavy, sticky moisturizer on the backs of my knees. That’s where Neutrogena Body Oil comes in. A light sesame moisturizer, it sinks in fast but doesn’t feel greasy. I mostly use it on my arms and legs.
Yay for drugstore bath and beauty treats and animal-print robes!
