I cleaned up!
For my birthday last month, my generous brother gave me a gift certificate to amazon.
It's funny. I seem to remember in years past, way before amazon and gift cards, that people used to say giving a gift certificate was "lazy". I don't get it. This way the recipient can get what they want.
So, with the vast array of stuff you can get on amazon, this was a fun task. I looked at books and DVDs and then thought, why not get something I wouldn't normally buy for myself? That's the best thing about a gift certificate.
I remembered reading about Claus Porto soaps and how incredible they are. Here's a little history about this company.
The packaging is exquisitely beautiful and I love the scents I picked out. They're unbelievably fresh and not too cloying.

Aren't they gorgeous? Wish you could smell them too.
It's so humid here right now, you can scoop the air with a spoon. Think I'll give one of these beauties a try later today.
