Well happy Monday!

It’s ALREADY DECEMBER 21ST. How are we here already? And how is it that Christmas is in 3 ( 4? ) days? I have to really get my ass in gear with gifts, man…LIKE I have hardly started. Is anyone else as bad as me?

Anyway, can we talk about garlic.

BECAUSE here’s how holiday madness has affected me: the other day I was casually shopping at Target. You know, getting the usuals: dollar section baby pink folders, fake eyelashes, spearmint gum, an extra set of Keds…& makeup remover.

I’m pretty specific when it comes to makeup remover. Remember I literally call down to room service when I’m traveling for olive oil. I’m not even going to pretend I’m not a weirdo because yes, I do remove my makeup with food-ish oils. Some of my favorite makeup removers include: avocado, grape seed, or olive OIL. Like from the supermarket.

But back to Target.

So I’m picking up my essentials, getting a couple of presents too…& I grab these SUPER CUTE mini bottles of olive oil.

I’m thinking “OMG these are perfect for traveling.”

My ideal makeup remover, travel size. So I grab 2. Couldn’t resist a 2 for 1.

On Saturday morning we went up to our condo in LA, so DUH I brought my mini olive oil. That day we met up with my parents & our friends for margaritas, chips, & salsa– I’m wearing some foundation, highlighter, & mascara. When we got home, I went into the bathroom to take off my makeup.

Typical nighttime routine: I washed my face real quick with the oil & water, towel dried my face, & then proceeded to rub oil everywhere— face, arms, legs, etc. I AM WEIRD, YES.

OK SO I hopped into bed & all of a sudden there’s this smell.

IT’S NOT LIKE A LITTLE SMELL. It’s a like ‘WTF IS THAT SMELL’ kind of smell. Michael is making faces ( gagging sounds to be more specific ). HELL, I’m making faces…because GUYS, I made a mistake & bought GARLIC INFUSED olive oil.

& shit, did it smell like shit.

It was all over our sheets, pillows, my hair, you can imagine.

Lucky Michael!!! Blessed.

Obviously I did what I could but there’s not exactly a lot of solutions on Google for this. I mean, people don’t typically rub garlic olive oil all over their body, right? Let’s just say it’s been three days & I still smell like garlic. Kind of how a skunk smell doesn’t leave? Can you imagine? That’s how garlic is.

…Lesson learned, I’ll be reaching for the avocado oil next time.

The highlight today was smelling like a garlic clove. It was particularly fun when I went to the chiropractor & he clearly held his breath during the adjustment.

So how’s the holiday madness treating you?

  1. Hahaha! This story is so funny! I think I died laughing! Poor Michael… 🙂
    & you are not the only one who haven’t bought presents… Eeer, I only bought my moms….

  2. Oh my god, I really hope you got rid of the garlic smell by now. I also use olive or coconut oil for hair and skin and didn’t even think about the possibility of there being garlic infused ones! Next time I reach for one on the supermarket shelf I’ll make sure to look twice.
    Btw I also like decorating my desk with candy canes. They’re so pretty, elegant and festive!

  3. OMG that sucks, but I have to thank you for sharing that because it totally sounds like a “me” move! I once ate a stale ass coffee bean at a perfume store mistaking it for a chocolate covered espresso bean. I know I have even more embarrassing stories, they just don’t come to mind right now! 🙂

    1. OMG Lisa I literally LOL’ed when I read your comment. I’m sure it was nasty at the time but it’s a pretty funny story you just told. Thanks so much for reading <3

  4. Bahahaha that is hilarious! I’ve never heard of that happening before but lesson learned here! Hopefully the smell will go away soon! Too funny.. happy holidays!!! 🙂 🙂

  5. HAHAHA OMG that story is SOO funny!! That sucks!! When you first started the post, I thought it was going in a totally different direction. Lately, I’ve been OBSESSED with roasting garlic and spreading it on every goddamn thing I can – toast, sweet potato, avocado…seriously. Everything. Try it!! Also, coconut oil is a great makeup remover, which I’m sure you know. Thanks for starting my day off with a laugh 🙂

    1. Hi Annie, yes I love coconut oil for seriously everything. Although my favorite makeup remover is grape seed oil! Try it it’s soo good! Thanks for reading <3

  6. The smell is probably gone by now, but you can literally get a stainless steel soap bar at Williams Sonoma because stainless steel gets rid of the garlic smell. I have one by my kitchen sink and it actually works you just have to rub your hands (or body in your case) on it vigorously. This is hilarious, regardless 🙂

  7. Always love da TSC household story updates LOL.

    P.S. did you make it out of Target alive? Why do I spend like $100 every single time I go in there!

    Happy Holidays, babeeeeee!!!


  8. I totally needed to hear that story right now! I literally laughed out loud in my office. I’m so glad it’s not just me doing crazy things right now!

  9. OMG hilarious story!! I once bought this magical miracle Thai anti aging cream and it smelled so BAD it got in my hair and everything..literally I swear after a year I can still smell it lingering ugh! Happy Holidays xo C

  10. So funny, hopefully the smell has gone away! Could you maybe do a post about how you use oil to remove your makeup/wash your face? I’d love to know if you have any tips on that because whenever I do it, it seems to be a mess and I end up washing my face normally to get all my makeup off.

    Love your posts, your blog is by far my favorite! 🙂

  11. Hahaha I have totally made that same mistake! Only I was using the oil for baking BROWNIES. Barf. My brother ate the while batch, even tho he complained how Funky they were the whole time. Oops! Haha merry christmas !

  12. Actual LOL’z at this one! How long did it take you to wash/change the sheets/air the room before you actually got to sleep?! Not the usual zen night time routine, hey? Ha! Happy New Year xo
