Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Despite the advent of email and the internet, there is no replacement for coming home after a long day, and finding an unexpected personal package or letter in your good old US of A mail. Especially when it has the familiar handwriting of a good friend, and post marks from Australia!!
It was a thank you gift from the Aussies, who finally arrived back in Oz after their around the world vacation and a month in the South of France, and contained an entire spa bag of products from Aesop, a relatively new little cosmetics company out of Melbourne (her town) that specializes in botanically derived natural products.
This stuff is amazing! The skin cleanser smells like nothing I've ever used before and was wonderful on the skin. And the hand and foot cream were like having a manicure and pedicure. I hope you can order this stuff on line, although I guess they sell it at Barney's in NY - cause I think I might be hooked!
Tonight I'm going to try the facial masque.
I feel pretty, oh so pretty. And it smells just amazing.
