I'm back to reading Australian chick lit, which apparently is exactly what I was doing a year ago. In my defense, I'm also in the middle of Childhood At Court, 1819-1914 by John Var Der Kiste, which deals with the lives of royal children around Europe during the Victorian and Edwardian era. Prince George of Cambridge should thank the universe and every deity he knows that he wasn't born back then.
Moby & Mark Lanegan- The Lonely Night
Still "meh", and I suspect it's going to remain so until Game of Thrones returns.
Mata Hari by DSH Perfumes. It's available again, in case you wondered, and I might need a backup.
New loves from Surratt and Make. The new Rouge Bunny Rouge loose powder is also very very nice.
Frequently Worn Outfit/Item
Coats, of course. The rumors abut spring were premature.
Sweet red peppers and cottage cheese. I'm as sophisticated as my 18 month old nephew.
The recent discovery that I've become allergic to coconut. My skin reacts in various unpleasant ways. And, yes, this is directly related to last month's coconut binge.
Friends. No matter how annoyed I get with various behind-the-scenes aspect of blogging or with the beauty and perfume industries, I never forget that it brought some of my closest friends into my life, most of them are people I would never have met otherwise.
Italy. It's been a while.
A spa day. I found an amazing reflexologist at the spa near my house.
I know that the Weinstein Company produces Project Runway and Under The Gunn, but do they have to keep mentioning Marchesa Parfum d'Extase every time Georgina Chapman appears on the show? It launched two and a half years ago. If people weren't lining up to buy it then, even Tim Gunn can't make them do it now.
