Organic Addiction/Oatmeal

1-Trader Joe's Vanilla Almond Granola Cereal:

Who does not want the smell of warm milk mixed with vanilla oatmeal on their bodies, and who does not want the taste of it on their tongues. My affair with oatmeal started early, and enhanced when I moved to the US and was introduced to Trader Joe's Vanilla Almond Granola Cereal. I have never used the expression " heaven in a jar", but now I can say it, or in this case type it.

The best Oatmeal I have ever tasted? Yes. Smells heavenly? Oh yes. Going to eat it for the rest of my life if I can? A loud resounding yes. I am a person who does not like to stick with one flavor or product for a long time; I like to try new things, but this thing broke the rule. I have been eating it for 2 and a half years straight and my mind did not even dare to think of another cereal.


2- ST. Ives Oatmeal& Shea Butter Body Lotion and Body Wash:

As I was immersed in the world that I mentioned above, I was hooked to that smell that I also mentioned above. Yes, I wanted to smell like my morning cereal. And at last I found it standing on a drug store shelf with all its glory. I sniffed it there and it was it! I purchased the body wash first. Did not realize how good it actually smells until I showered. It is the most balanced smell, not too sweet  nor too overwhelming, did not even smell cheap considering the price which was less than 5 dollars ! I have finished  2 bottles and bought the third.

The one  day I was at Target, and could not be more satisfied when I found the body lotion version of that heavenly scent. Getting double oatmealed is now my thing .


  1. That Trader Joe's cereal is honestly the Holy Grail of my kitchen. Not sure what I would do without it.
