After two days of exams, I decided to take the night off, as well as tomorrow afternoon because my friends are coming over for the kimono sale :)
I spent the whole evening and night cleaning my room - vacuuming, rearranging things, generally going about to randomly straighten up the room. Once again, there is so much space in my room! Or at least, for one person, it's alot of space :P I also decided to rearrange the kimono pile and keep a simple catalogue of things I've decided to sell. It'll also help me keep track of things I've already sold, to whom, and for how much.
I've just finished doing everything (I'd forgotten to price the obiage and obijime! LOL) and the tally is:
10 wool kimono
2 wool kimono ensembles
3 hanhaba obi
16 nagoya obi
In addition to all that, Hong also contributed to my pile:
5 dance kimono
2 wool kimono
1 nagoya obi
Wow, that's alot of things to get rid of!! I've priced everything rather fairly I think, except for some of the mint stuff which are a little expensive, but still fair. I can't wait for tomorrow!!!
Oh, just as a random note, but I'm never using any shower gel other than Body Shop again. I tried a number of other shower gels/creams - the Palmolive one gave me rashes, Dove was alright but had a too-strong smell (sensitive nose), and Patty's preferred brand.... Well, I've been using that one for a few weeks now, and I only realised today that it is the cause of my increasingly dry skin :( It's the reason why my skin has lost its healthy glow and is always dry and flaky and uncomfortable!!
Sooooo.... I took out my emergency travel-sized bottle of Body Shop Mango shower gel for today's shower and WOW I can really feel the difference! My skin feels much much softer, just like I remember it, and not at all dry or rough like Patty's soap makes me feel.
After all that cleaning I did, I felt I should give myself a reward, so I also indulged myself in a full-body lotioning. (I rarely do this - I usually only put lotion on my arms and legs) I also decided to use my favourite Body Shop Grapeseed Body Butter instead of my usual Body Shop Shea Butter. (Yes, I really like Body Shop stuff :P I practically swear by them!)
=^__^= Ahhh heaven! Everything feels soft and smooth now. All I need is for someone to give me a facial, do my hair and give me a manicure and I'll feel overly pampered. Once I go home, I'll HAVE to schedule that one of these days. Maybe I'll throw in a back and shoulder massage too :D Mmmmmmm.....
