Good Morning All!
I have a little funny story to share with you today. Hubby and I went food shopping yesterday at our local Whole Foods market. Food shopping is one of my least favorite activities. I admit I am completely ADD when it comes to shopping. I’m easily bored and distracted but, I tag along with hubby for company and entertainment.
Most times, he will dance & sing in the aisle and/or juggle small produce (for those who are wondering, yes he buys it after juggling). He gleefully rides the shopping cart across the parking lot etc… What’s that? Sounds like an 8-year-old trapped in man’s body? Yep that would be him. but, hey it’s fun 🙂 and he’s a huge hit with the little old ladies! Almost like Jerry Lewis in France. *SMILE*
Anyway, while shopping, hubby was playing with produce and I, being my ADD self, wandered off to the all natural bath & body & aromatherapy etc.. aisles. While I was there, I did A LOT of label reading out of curiosity.
I was shocked at how a product that claimed to be all natural, contained so many chemicals! what?! So I spied some more and took a notebook and pen out of my backpack and made notes on what I liked and did not like about X brand, product label, packaging etc..
In a short while, a woman approached me and asked if I needed any help. I smiled politely and told her, “No thanks” and went back to my “spying”. About 5 minutes passed and another well-meaning soul asked if I needed any help, being a little annoyed (because, I was so engrossed in what I was doing) I was a little terse with her and said, “Thank you, No I’m fine”. Another 5 minutes pass and I am asked again by the first well-meaning soul if I’m sure I couldn’t use some help. She caught me off guard, so I blurted out, “No thanks, just spying on Burt’s Bees”.
She looked at me like I was nuts and left me alone. Needless to say, I was not asked about needing any help after that. LOL!
I finished my task and re-joined my hubby still in the produce aisle *sigh* and was a good trooper the rest of the time especially after he treated for a nice sushi lunch. On the way home, I thought about my little spy expedition and all that I had gleaned off of those labels. I must say that I really admire Burt’s Bees philosophy of keeping their products all natural. For the most part they really do stick to that! I am of the same philosophy of no compromise and will always keep my products all natural, certified organic (whenever possible) and NEVER EVER tested on any animals!
Well, I hope you enjoyed my little story and hope to see you soon for my Eco-Chic Boutique Launch September 1st!
Thanks again for reading and enjoy your day!
All The Best To You!!!
