I’ve got margaritas on the brain these days, and oddly enough, it’s not because I’m drinking them. It’s because of Jimmy Buffett. Most people are pretty surprised to hear that Jimmy Buffett is one of my all-time favourite musical artists. Now, before you revise your mental image of me to include a closet full of khaki shorts, Hawaiian print shirts, and a pet parrot, let me explain! My dad loves Jimmy Buffett, so I grew up with him, and he sounds like summer and nostalgia and happiness to me. And, while his more popular calypso-style hits never fail to make me smile (I may or may not be listening to Margaritaville as I type this), most of my Jimmy Buffett favourites are songs that have never received any radio play, like Savannah Fare You Well and his cover of Bruce Cockburn’s Pacing the Cage (give them a listen!). Anywho, it has long been a dream of mine to see him in concert with my dad, and guys—it’s happening!!! I’ll be joining my family to see him live in Vancouver in October and I don’t know if I can adequately express how excited I am! Ever since I found out I’ve been listening to my Jimmy Faves playlist a whole lot, and counting the days (64!). So, basically, Jimmy Buffett inspired this sugar scrub, and we can all be grateful I took inspiration from Margaritaville for this scrub and not Cheeseburger in Paradise!
