On vacation in France a few years ago, I happened upon a teeny shop in Aix en Provence. At first glance, it appeared to be stuffed to the rafters with ginormous candies straight out of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. Even better (and much less fattening) the oversize sweets were actually fizzy bath bombs. The shelves were stocked with cheerfully named shower gels, bubble baths and skin creams concocted from fresh, organic fruits and veggies.
Triumphantly, I snagged a half dozen Happy Hippy Shower Gels for my friends as mementos. Travel gifts, done. Imagine my dismay several weeks later when I discovered the exact same store at Mohegan Sun Casino. No matter, it’s nice to know you don’t have to schlep to Aix for Happy Hippy Shower Gel (or the Lemony Flutter cuticle butter I’ve been slathering on my scaly hands and heels). It’s an enticing spot and on a recent dinner foray to the casino, I bought a bunch of their gift boxes (Good Karma and Ray of Sunshine) to stash in the closet for present emergencies.
