Sleigh bells ring,
Are you listening?
In the lane,
Snow is glistening.
A beautiful sight,
We’re happy tonight,
Walking in a winter wonderhaaand!
[insert applause here]
Aw, thank you! Thank you! You’re too kind… 🙂
LOL! Virtual Christmas caroling. We should make that a thing…
In related news, this $12 Soap & Glory Winter Wonderhand gift set couldn’t have come at a better time for parched paws across the land, because wherever temps have been dropping, dry skin has been itching and cracking.
The set comes with three large sample-sized 1.69-oz. tubes of Soap & Glory’s Hand Food creams in rosy bergamot Original Pink, sweet lime Sugar Crush and almond vanilla Smoothie Star.
To really get behind these, first, you have to like sweetly scented lotions, and I do this time of year, since all three of the lotions fit that bill. Second, hello hydration! I keep a full-size bottle of Hand Food on my desk year round because of how moisturizing it is (L’Occitane Shea Butter Whipped Hand Cream is another fave), and it’s nice to have a more portable bottle to keep in my purse.
All three of these thick, rich lotions contain shea butter, by the way, and take a while to completely sink in. They eventually get there, but I wouldn’t do any trapeze work right away (read: slippery hands).
If your dry hands, or the hands of someone you love, could use a helping hand, you can find the $12 Soap & Glory Winter Wonderhand set at Ulta and online now.
Christmas caroler craziness
Do you get carolers in your area? Every once in a while we will, and — I’m almost ashamed to admit this, but here I go anyway! — I never know what to do when they come around, so I turn off all the lights and close the curtains, because that’s what my dad would do when I was a kid.
I’d always ask him why we were doing it as we all sat there in the dark, and he’d just say, “They want to steal fruit!” with absolutely no context or further explanation.
Seriously, welcome to my childhood…
Anyway, thank goodness for the Internet, because I just looked up the proper etiquette to follow when carolers come to your door, and most people suggest thanking them for their gift of music and offering them a treat, like cookies or candy canes.
So now I know what to do. I’ll give them some of my Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Stars, instead of just sitting quietly in a dark room until they leave. 🙂
