I finally caught up with Offspring last night and a very single Dr Chris is back in Nina's life and I do not mean this in a studiously casual (and sort of gloating but not really) 'look there goes my ex way and here I am totally seriously with my current man '. He's back and next week is the season finale. I suspect even Mr SSG will be watching with me next week. I will not be available next Wednesday night, in case you were after me.
So I was understandably a bit flustered this morning (but you can't tell Mr SSG why).
I wore a tribute to Bastille Day a day after the actual event. Points for trying I guess.

I was feeling French chic and Fuchsia - so we have here my Chanel by way of Target cardigan and a RPE Faux Fuchsia Leo Necklace.
Plus, I had a Donna Martin moment this morning. That's right, Donna Martin (Tori Spelling's character from the original and the best 90210). That's right, not Donna Hay, who as you may have already gathered, is a long term source of inspiration for this blog - both in food and fashion.
It's Friday and it's been way too long since I've had a 90s flashback on the blog. The 90s was my teen years decade and I've got an attack of teenaged girl's giggling giddiness. See my opening paragraph regarding Offspring for the reason why.

Anyway. I was thinking of Donna Martin after I had my shower and found myself staggering around over the sink before finally bending over and patting down the bathroom mat. No, I wasn't hung over and I'm not for a moment insinuating that Donna (paragon of virtue that she was) may have been either. The truth was even less glamorous. I'd managed to put both my contact lenses on the same eye.
I don't know how I managed to find the spare time to day dream like this, but this then reminded me of a scene from 90210 where Donna had realized she had done this. She had arrived at school in tears and met Brenda at their lockers. When Brenda asked her what had happened, Donna tried to explain. I recall Brenda giving her a bushy eye browed imperious look, much like in the photo below.

But I digress. I made another interesting discovery in the bathroom this morning whilst trying to manage the contact lens situation.
The large pump pack of Redwin Sorbolene Moisturiser appears to be the proud new mother of a baby called Coles Sorbolene Lotion For All Skin Types.
On further investigation, the Aesop scalp cleansing shampoo brought home a new friend to stay.
However, the Kiehl's cleanser remained alone.
Readers, we (well me literally but you'll just have to go figurative) need look no further than Mr SSG for the answers. It turns out that my stealth fragrancing of the sorbolene with a bit of Chanel's Coco 'nearly killed' Mr SSG and the Aesop shampoo 'doesn't work and smells'. This blog understands that the Kiehl's cleanser is 'fine' and 'just gets used because it's there'.
Have you had any dramatic developments like this amongst your bathroom products?
Have a lovely evening and a great weekend.
