Guest Cynthia Of Creation

I was happy

today i ended up suprising my friend at the mall, i caught her literally just as she got off,

any way it was cool we talked hung out,

than we went to bath and body works!

Never been in there before, but I LOVED IT!

She would open like the cap she smell it than hand it to me "smell" i would! ask me what i thought, OMG Lot of good stuff, Really nice, I always have a fun time hanging out with her!

her favorite and ming now too! Japanese cherry blosssom! it smells amazing!

it was funny at the cash register i sliped the cahsier $10 and i put my finger on my lips

and my friend goes to swipe the card and shes like wow it just went down 10!? cool?

the lady said ya its a secret santa thing.

She didnt catch on but its coool, I used my secret stash of cash so, it stays secret thats cool

but it felt nice doing something nice.

I definatly had a fun time, we went to gamestop, but i was like ok lets go! after two seconds.

So anyone else been in there? whats your favorite!

Ming was the "Japanese Cherry Blossom Shampoo" i think

PS: to clarify, I am not out to her, I am thinking about it but ugh! i dont think i should although i dont think she would say anything i mean i dont know its crazy she kinda feels like a sister. anyway back to bath and body works

apperantly its with victoria secrets also right now they are having a buy 3 get 3 free sale on anything!

I noticed that some things smell little different! from body wash to lotion, etc.

O they had a mgaical lotion i cant remember name but it actualy started smelling better the longer it was on her!

she would stop and smell and be like smell that its getting better right

Also after that omg their was such cute dragonfly earings they were studs i believe tiny not big at all! at a stand. they were small, they had i think opal two wing s and two wings birthstone!

I think this is te right section.

I know when im out and start transition im going straight there to pick up sometuff!

So once more Whats your favorite body wash, lotion, or whatever and why?

I like the Japanese Cherry Blossom cuz it isnt to strong or two sweet, its just right!

Hey Cynthia

I haven't been in a bath and body works for decades, but I am a sucker for anything that smells like cucumber. I love it so much I would spend my last dollar on it. Funny though I don't have anything that smells like it. Thanks for the post I will schedule it in to my next trip to the mall

The Japanese Cherry Blossom is also one of my favorites. also stopped into victoria secret before work this morning and was looking around, and smelling all there lotions and perfumes. The bad part is I am always missing the test strip and hitting my hands bilfoldld, purse, what ever is in the way, and by the end of this I start getting a headache from all the overwhelming smells at the same time, but I will live happily with and perfect my aim :P .

Luv

I always wondered how anyone could tell the difference in scents after inhaling the first one and today I stopped in an actual perfume store. Before smelling the first strip, the sales clerk ask if I wanted the 'coffee beans' first. Silly me, I thought she was talking about a scent name and said sure. Then she handed me a tiny jar of coffee beans. Now I know the secret. :lol:

They make great stuff, we gets lot's of their coupons and specials here.

Currently I use Bath and Body works "Sea Island Cotton" body creme, and lotions. That scent is great, and nice way to finish up from shaving !

@ Cynthia of Creation:

Girl, first, let me tell you how much I LOVE the screen name you use on here: Cynthia of Creation! AWESOME! Great, great, great name!

While I always try to stay positive with my comments, I've got to tell you: Don't know about that avatar you use. Kinda gruesome. But, hey, who am I to say? If you like it, by all means go with it.

BATH & BODY WORKS!

New Albany, Ohio powerhouse that now is in the big leagues of retailing but started out as one woman with a great idea and lots of gumption. Bath & Body Works is my store of choice whenever it comes to fragrances, emoluments, etc. Why?

They've got great stuff. Their prices are very reasonable. Their stores are slam-dunk awesome and just a pleasure to shop at. These people totally understand the aesthetics and mindset of their target shoppers. It's just SOOO much fun to be in their stores.

EVERY JANUARY AND EVERY JUNE, THEY HAVE THEIR SEMI-ANNUAL SALE! SHOP THERE THEN! YOU CAN BUY LOTS OF STUFF AND AWESOME PRICES!

My fragrances are exclusively from their stores. I'm alternatively using these fragrances from Bath & Body Works:

* Cool Citrus Basil;

* White Citrus;

* Citrus Sapphire;

* Midnight Pomegranate;

* Warm Vanilla Sugar; and,

* Lemon & Lime No. 1818.

These scents work with my body chemistry. I buy them ALL in Body Splash form rather than in either au de cologne or au de parfum forms. Body Splash form is the most dilute, so you can use it generously, it will last for hours and the price is right.

Want a heavier scent? Go with either au de cologne or au de parfum forms. Or, you could layer the shower soaps and body creams in the same fragrances if you want to.

Bath & Body Works will very generously let you try their products. Do so. Why? Find fragrances and products YOU like. Find fragrances and prodcuts that WORK with your body chemisty. Citrus-based scents work well for me, and I like them very much. Coconut does too.

You CAN go upscale at a store like Nordstrom or some such and pay $300 or so for 0.5 ounce of some hoitie-toitie fragrance, and there's nothing wrong with doing that. Me? Bath & Body Works any day of the week. Great stuff. Great prices. Great place.

Hope you like it. Happy shopping!

;) Lacey

Bath & Body Works' "Cool Citrus Basil" Bodysplash is a splendid blend of citrus essences kissed by an accent of basil which blend together into a marvelous melody of fragrance. If it works with your body chemistry, it will MAJORLY work with it and just totally pop and rock the house! Neither the citrus nor the basil predominates. There is a synergy that's just amazing! Love it!

You have Italian in you? Rock on, hon! Lacey Girl is half Italian and half Jewish (not really a race per se, but why belabor the point?)! Oh, Heaven help us!

Oy veh, Don Corleone, I have come to pay my respects! You schlemiel, I'm gonna make ya an offer you can't refuse! Bubalah, it's a family thing, you understand?

Hey, babes, about your avatar ... I'm just messin' with ya! Forgive me, hon! Looks cool to me. In fact, it rocks in a sinister sort of way, but then again, so do The Rolling Stones, and they are my all-time favorite band!

Peace & Happiness to You!

B) Lacey

Eh, goomba? Lemme be your yenta! Just 3 more days of the Big Semi-Annual Sale at Bath & Body Works, so hie thee hither cop some Cool Citrus Basil Bodysplash, honey! Score some Coconut Lime Verbena Bodysplash too if you can find it ... majorly good stuff!

I think your avatar and name is way cool Cynthia !

Was just back in the store yesterday with the girls. They keep sending me more coupons. With 4 women in this house that stuff goes fast.

This time we bulked up on "Secret Wonderland", body lotion and creams. I just used some this morning after shaving and have to say, it's like a floral explosion, very nice.

My daughter is into "Sweat Pea".

      It’s all water weight and an unbalanced system. Losing 2 pounds overnight doesn’t mean you lost 2 pounds. Although it is a nice scale moment. Lol.  As far as blowing everything, I don’t agree. You had a cheat. Cheats are fine. The issue I see is that it’s directly linked to an emotional issue. That’s a tough link to break, but one that everyone should do. Emotional eating is the worst kind of eating habit to carry. Try separating the alcohol and the food from the emotions. But don’t beat yourself up over a bad day. The bad day isn’t what matters. It’s what you do the next day that matters. You get back on that exercise train, and fuel it with healthy habits.  I have been pushing my Monday workouts to the afternoon myself. GOT is Sunday nights at 9 so I’m up past 10 every Sunday. There’s no way I’m waking up at 4 if I can’t get to bed till 1020 or so. It kills me all day. I’m tired. I’m grumpy. I am incessantly yawning. It’s awful. I don’t have my shake if I don’t exercise, so I end up with something less than healthy (dunks power breakfast sandwich and a coffee today). But it’s a sacrifice I choose to make for my television show. I have 8+ years invested so I make an exception. And it’s okay to not be perfect.    Like I say all the time Amy it’s not about being on a diet. It’s not about working out every day. It’s not about that number the scale flashes in our faces either. It’s about finding your place. It’s about loving yourself. It’s about keeping yourself strong and healthy. It’s about being proud of your work that you do for you! These battles aren’t won in public. They’re won inside ourselves. They are won at 4am deciding to push yourself out of bed to do something good for your body. They are created in the dark when we are alone. THATS when we are created. THATS when we are our strongest. THATS the times that are the most important. And you are doing a great job!!! Bad days or not, you are awesome!

      I am thankful for all those who say trans people are foolish, crazy, evil, misguided, or whatever.  Here is why:   I've always been self-educated, and above average intelligence though far from genius.  I've always attracted educated and intelligent people to myself.  Many of my friends have been atheist and agnostic, or some flavor thereof.  A lot of educated people tend to lean the direction of shying away from God.  Often challenges to my faith have been given.  Sometimes the challenges are out of mischief and other times out of authentic doubts.  Either way, at some point I realized some of the common challenges to my faith were good questions for which I had no answers.  The criticisms were often stinging.  Rather than sitting by and allowing my faith to be shaken, I chose to dig deep and find answers.  In the end, it has lead to a great deal of spiritual development, and a confidence in my faith I would not otherwise have.  I am grateful for my atheist and agnostic friends and all the people who have challenged me.  I think they have shaped me as much or more than anything from the pulpit.   There is good reason why I am putting off labeling myself as trans, and starting a transition (for at least 6 months).  I am look for people to tell me I am wrong.  Sure, I am a bit scared.  Being told you are wrong is never comfortable.  Being opposed can be embarrassing and humiliating.  The more intellectual you believe you are, the more a challenge bites at you.  I am not so scared as to not see the good which comes from being faced with good questions.  I want the growth which comes with challenge, just as in my Christian walk.  I also want the confidence in the end (assuming I do transition) coming from having been challenged and having weathered the storm.   There is a hidden benefit of having had my faith challenged.  The blessing is being able to help others, which is deeply rewarding.  I fully expect the same beautiful experience awaits me on the other end of my current journey.  Touching the lives of others with gentleness and kindness is the best this world can offer.   Today, I choose to be thankful for the trans detractors and critics.  The nay-sayers are causing me to grow, to dig deep within myself, and preparing me for a life ahead (whatever it might look like).   Blessings!

      Will do! ❤️ I am also massaging every day. I'll also take the next set of measurements soon, too!

      Janae,   I recently had my first experience with a gender therapist.  It was very relieving to just throw up on someone about how I feel without judgement.  The gender therapist I am seeing has helped a lot of folks with the same issues.  There is no surprise, shock, nor judgement.  It was a great experience.  You'll do fine in gender therapy.  You're already beginning to get in touch with how you feel.

      I have had a good week.

      Monday was my normal counseling appointment, which leaves me feeling good and that this trans thing is okay.

      Thursday, I had the day off work for a dermatology appointment. I decided to wear a black skirt with a red cowl neck sweater to the appointment. The appointment is a yearly appointment, and my legal name is still my male name. The clinic was AWESOME! The lady at the counter didn't bat an eye even when I handed her an ID with a male name and photo on it. The med tech looked a little surprised, but recovered quickly and was kind. I had to get undressed, and I loved when she said I'd have to take off my bra for the exam. The PA who did the exam was awesome. She checked my skin including peeking under my panties. Since I was only wearing a gaff and a medical robe, she knew I was early transition transgender. I was tightly tucked, and she made no reaction she was just doing another exam. I was nervous going in, but relaxed departing.   After the appointment, I had a bunch of errands to run. I did all if them in that skirt. It was absolutely wonderful to be interacting with society as a woman. I've questioned this for so long. Doubting if I was really transgender. More and more I know the truth.  Another interesting highlight was a short stop at a cobbler’s shop. I was stalling going in, sitting in my truck, looking at the shop and wondering about all the horrible things that could happen. When I noticed, in the upper left corner of the shop window was the rainbow flag.  That little chunk of clothe, such a small symbol, and it totally lifted my spirits. The cobbler was super sweet, and told me he could fix my shoes for $20, or I could fix them for free with some super glue. After that I headed to the library and a few other stops. It was really a nice day--it felt wonderful not to doubt or to worry so much--to just be.

      We do in fact have a growing number of churches who fully accept us.  They have gotten the idea that Creation is too big for only two set in stone genders.  A friend of mine actually had her male Baptismal Name changed during the First Service of Easter to one that now is a better fit and expresses the Divine Image that is in all of us much more openly and makes her a person who is Fully Alive in faith and body.
    • ToniTone
      ❤️   Yeah, totally! I wish she understood. But she loves me regardless. Really she's the only one I was concerned about coming out to. Everyone else has less investment in me, and I feel I can deal with whatever may happen.    It's a relief just letting her know and getting that tribulation over with...
