An urge to splurge...

And finally, a little splurge after you've done your evening cleaning burst, cleaned up that last lingering dish in the sink, and tucked the kids into bed. I've recently become a bit obssessed with Caldrea Hand Lotion. My personal favorite? The Ginger Pomelo, which smells unlike any lotion I've ever had the privilege to sniff...and I mean that in a really good way. Oh, right, and it also moisturizes beautifully, which I suppose is rather the point of a hand lotion. So, slather some on!
