The Pure and Good hand soap we picked up at Anthropologie just before the holidays has truly been pure and good, plus so much more!
First of all, we love the beautiful thick, faceted glass bottle filled with pale golden liquid. Next, we found that when you press the pump, just a small (but ample) amount of soap comes out (the soap seems to be very concentrated — which is good for the environment).
Finally, we love the scent. We chose Olive Blossom, it is slightly fragrant but not too purfumed. It really just smells CLEAN, and isn’t that all one really wants in a soap?
Don’t you just love shopping at Anthropologie? I go regularly, but when I was at a store during December, I found myself lost in a daze – smiling and gasping at most everything I saw. It dawned on me that this store to me is what Tiffany’s was to Holly Golightly — a place where nothing bad could ever happen.
The displays always leave me in awe, especially when they take common items and turn them into works of art. I couldn’t resisit taking photos of the giant ostriches made of recycled paper…
There is a great interior design blog I like to follow called Beach Bungalow 8. She recently did a piece on the “Anthro” stores in New York, where they had display animals made of take-out utensils!! Click on Beach Bungalow 8 to see her piece and puruse her blog. If you don’t have a store in your area, I’m so sorry! Please click on Anthropologie for a little cyber visit!
To me, Antropology is sort of the Grand Bazaar of the retail world, I love exploring all of the nooks and crannies; I find myself pondering about the origins of many of the items; and I usually walk away with something that I love.
The blue patterned tablecloth and napkins were splendid for Christmas dinner, they blend well with my decor.
I have a feeling they will be gracing the table for many a meal to come.
