I have been so focused on my natural love challenge 2016 that I barely realised that I have developed a little cough. It would be my luck that as soon as Cupid’s arrow is ready to strike, I end up a spluttering snotty mess. Hopefully, A.Vogel’s Ivy Thyme Complex will get me back on track in enough time for the big day.
I’m nuts about you?
After work I head down to my local health store to see what mystical object I could give Stacey. I figure no-one has probably done something like this before and I am hoping it will give me an inclination as to how me asking her out would go down. I am feeling a bit apprehensive by the time I reach the door…..I have always had the perception that health stores are dusty, cluttered hovels so when I walk through the door I am pleasantly surprised. I nervously nod at the warm greeting that I am welcomed with, the fresh clean atmosphere and the display of colourful products that cheerfully line each shelf. I have absolutely no idea what I am looking for….I know I want something quirky that will both get a smile and earn me some brownie points. I spot a bag of chickpeas and start to wonder how I could spin it “hey Stacey, be my chick?”. Shocking. Next, I see a jar of Almond Keen Nut Butter and again my mind begins to whirl. “I’m nuts about you”, “I’m keen to ask you out?” I might be onto something with this one and I have to admit that I also want to try it so I buy two jars and head out of the shop, taking a mental note of a few other products I would like to try again. It is only as I am walking down the road that I realize I have survived my first trip inside a health store.
