My introduction to the idea of collection miniature bottles came from seeing my Toronto aunt’s mini-perfume bottle display. (Isn’t everything better in miniature?) Now, that is a normal and presentable collection to have.
“Collecting” the miniature lotions from hotels I’ve stayed at, not so much. Whereas I would be loathed to use mini-perfume and empty those bottles of the liquid whose colour may be contributing to the bottle design, I’m less reluctant to use the lotion. I have so far been a bit reluctant to use and then dispose of the prettier bottles but cleaning out the excess in my apartment is becoming a stronger urge. In this case, it will suffice to take a snapshot of my “collection” and start using it in earnest.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, I don’t take the shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, shower caps, towels, bathrobes, and all the other stuff. It’s just that pretty much anywhere I go, my skin rebels a little against the different humidity and air quality. I toss the ultra-convenient hotel lotion into my bag and be off with my day!
