Tickled pink...ish?

I have the most ridiculous life. Case in point: this Saturday. I ran errands pretty much the entire day without even a clue that my skin had turned completely purple.

I'll give you a minute for that to REALLY sink in. I'm not exaggerating. I had literally turned PURPLE.

Let me explain. A couple weeks ago, I received a brightly colored bath bomb from Lush as a gift.

{heaven}. I wish they would sponsor me to talk about how wonderful their stuff is all the time, but honestly I do that for free. Maybe I should hold out...?

Anyway, since husband was going out of town this weekend, I figured I would take advantage of the free time and enjoy a nice relaxing soak in the tub. I was so engrossed in the book I was reading I didn't realize that it was slowly dyeing my skin purple {The bathwater had turned purple, too; that should have been my first clue.}

Completely ignorant of my new hue, I threw on some clothes, went downtown, saw myself in a changing room mirror, and almost fainted. I've used a bunch of other bath bombs from Lush and this has NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. I looked like I belonged in the girl version of the Blue Man Group

I have no idea how I didn't notice this before I left the house, but honestly I've stopped being surprised by stuff like this.

Thankfully, it was easier to get my skin back to its normal color than the bathtub. I was scrubbing that sucker for TWO HOURS straight.

I should have called this blog "Whoops!".

    1. haha I was too embarrassed to document it. The color stayed in my nails though for a day or so though...! haha
