Comings and goings: For the love of shopping

Saturday turned into a mega shopping day for me, visiting some of the events just coming in, and making one last run to some of those that are going out.  Here is a sampling of some of the finds and finery from my shopping trip.

Going out end of day July 28th. The Home Show, where I found this flower table-scape from Circa Living, and Hair Fair, where any budget I might have gone in with was…gasp…quickly out the window for the love of hair. You still have time today to make one last round before these great events close down.

Events coming in…I Love Donna Flora, where I snapped me up some spunky green sandals for my Slinks.  I love shopping for a good cause, with so many lovely exclusives donated by the designers especially for this event, and knowing that funds are going to help a wonderful lady, Ms. Donna Flora herself, Squinternet Larnia.  So, I figured I had every excuse to indulge.  Also new this month is this luscious halter babydoll dress from Shine by [ZD], with its satin sheen.

Shine Handverk Events

Additionally, Zodiac just rolled out.  As you may have guessed from my lion tail necklace from HANDverk, this roaring round is celebrating Leos.  Finally, finishing things off is one version of the new Nyree eye makeup from Face Paint.  Yes…named after me, and to say I’m flattered and honored would be an understatement. This collection comes in a variety of colors, with and without lipstick option, which makes it wonderful for layering.

Cabana Boy Not Included

There’s a deceptively simple box sitting in the window of the Circa Living booth at The Home show. It is labeled Paradise Reef Outdoor Massage Room, but looking at the little picture on the box just doesn’t give you the full feel for all the goodies on the inside.  Here’s some of what’s to love in the box. 17 pieces including the curtained teak cabana, animated massage table, massage mat with 2 tender sequenced scenes, two water features, one with water lilies, one with bamboo, rug, bamboo hanging lights,  plants, hot rocks and orchids, a shelf filled with spa supplies, incense, and towels and 4 tiki torches.

This sensual little get away is perfect for backyard or poolside for the couple that loves to indulge each other with some TLC.

Circa Massage Room 3

I combined it with another offering at The Home Fair, Circa’s Avlona Outdoor Shower, which also comes with the plants you see in the white planters, so after you both get each other heated up with a bit of massage, you can cool back down again with a shower, either alone or together.

In fact, about the only thing not in one of these two boxes from Circa Living is the cabana boy, and he’s mine.  Sorry…you’ll have to get your own.
