Laura Ingalls Wilder: A Writer's Life by Pamela Smith Hill. You'd think there's nothing less glamorous than farm life on the Dakota prairie or in the Ozarks, but Laura was always interested in fashion and in personal grooming. Incidentally, Laura was born 146 years ago today.

So many perfumes, so little time. I've been testing something very interesting over the last few weeks: Christopher Street by Charenton Macerations. I'll review it soon, of course, but in the meantime you can read all about it on IndiePerfumes.
Heavy(ish) dark eyeliner, neutral light eye shadows, light natural rose everything else.
Frequently Worn Outfit/Item
Clip-on vintage earrings. I can't get enough of them. My current favorite pair was a gift from a dear friend who magically knows my taste.
Rice pudding. Pudding, in general. It's soft.
I have no guilt this week. Ice cream for breakfast? I've earned it. See below.
Dental woes. And that's an understatement.
Dressing up, going out, seeing friends.
Valentine's Day. It's the anniversary of the Blond's and mine engagement, so it's a special day for us.
Better teeth? Better painkillers? I'll settle for some barely attainable Japanese cosmetics.
I'm beyond excited about the discovery of Richard III's skeleton. But some of those Plantangenet fanatics trying to rehabilitate his name make me shake my head. Next they'll want to revise the order of succession in favor of Richard's bloodline.
