Book, Song, Body

BOOK- This weeks book is a book that I recieved last year as a brithday gift, True Prep: It's A Whole New Old World. As someone who identifies with the "preppy" lifestyle and someone who read and enjoyed the original Preppy Handbook, I loved this book. This book really will only appeal to a specific demographic and most of that demographic has already read this book.

However, I would encourage everyone- prep or not- to read this book. It's a great reminder of how to live within your means, to be a decent person, to not fluant what you may be blessed with (materialistically) and, my favourite, a review of manners and class.

There are many aspects of this book that I love, but I one of my favourites is the 'preppy reading list'. I'm always looking for new books to read. This list is great. Many different authors and types of reading material (including poetry). With my favourite chapter being 11, which is all about etiquette- something I feel is lacking in our world and I enjoy having that quick refresher.

On top of that, this really is a well written book. It's funny. It's entertaining. It's a good read. If you haven't read it, consider doing so. And if you have read it, re-read it.

SONG- As we all know, yesterday was Valentine's Day and my birthday. I'm also a huge fan of The Sing-Off. The first time I heard Penn Rosen (of the Tufts Bubs) sing, I feel in love with him and his voice. I've also asked for Penn for my birthday every year. I would love to just hear him sing every day. So, this weeks song is Sweet Carolin with Penn singing lead.  

BODY- A few months ago, I was introduced to Safari Soapa. Besides the fact that they are a Canadian Company, I love that their products are handmade and natural- I can pronounce and recognize all ingredients used in their products! 

By nature, I have super dry skin. The dry air and Canadian winter does not me and my dry skin situation. I've been using their massage & bath oil for my skin. I just rub some of the oil on my skin and I'm good to go. It doesn't leave my skin feeling tight or greasy, not does it dry out my skin. I haven't had the chance to use the product as a bath oil, so I'm not sure what it's like.

As an added bonus, it does smell great without being overpowering.
