, bon voyage and have a lovely holiday. I hope you enjoyed your Chilean merlot -- and I hope you'll find more to enjoy in Oslo than Aquavit! Twolf
, I echo Jon
pleasure in learning that you've succumbed to the charms of Impossible Iris
. I think we SotD'ers are getting close to a quorum in our enjoyment of II
, I have to laugh -- TdB
is one of only 3 LAPs that I like at all. Robin
is wearing another. PerfumedLady
, you nailed it with "treacly," but I guess in this case, "treacly" isn't a pejorative for me. Lucas
, congratulations! I'm glad you feel better about this go-around. I'm now sending lots of hopes for contentment and relaxation your way. I know how difficult it can be to unwind after that kind of stress. 30Roses
, I'm so sorry to hear about rosebud.
I did something quite similar to both of my knees in high school (subluxation and sprained ligaments but no tears). It HURTS, but ice is magic. I was icing 3-4 times a day for 20 minutes for the first couple of weeks after the injury. One of my problems was that my knees didn't track smoothly and my quadriceps muscles were too weak -- and my curvy hips really pulled on the alignment of my knees. I don't know what body type rosebud is, but if she tends toward curvy, you may want to look at a strengthening program for her quads. Which isn't always fun -- curvy hips plus athletic, muscular legs means never ever wearing skinny jeans. Sigh. But I digress. I'll be offering up wishes for no ligament tears.Roberto
, I love the photo! Thanks for a great start to the thread!
And finally, my dear Quarry
I must say, I admire your iron will. I am weak. So very weak. My bottle of Une Fleur de Cassie
finally arrived, along with 5 lovely samples of other things I've been wanting to try. And what am I doing, right this second (besides typing, I mean)? I have all 5 samples at different places on my arms. And I'm twisting myself into knots trying to sniff them all properly. Because, you know, I couldn't just try 2 on. No, I had to do it all at once. C'est *ma* vie.
I hope everyone has had a lovely Friday and that you finish it off in the ways you love most.
I started in the day in Lutens Boxeuses
, and now I'm finishing the day stinking of Dries Van Noten
, Lys Mediterranee
, Byredo La Tulipe
, Arquiste Boutonniere No. 7
, and Le Labo Neroli
. I'm in heaven. Quarry
, I have no doubt we could stink up da place, no matter where da place might be!
