    Woke up to a gorgeous springtime day. I feel I should be by the sea, sunbathing, swimming....or sailing. That's why I'm wearing Navegar, even if I'm going to stay at home all morning doing housework (sigh).

    Inspired by Agent Provocateurs Monday SotD I wore TBS Vanilla and dug out my Hanae Mori Butterfly sample... unfortunately I put on too much Vanilla and it overpowered the Hanae Mori. Oh well. Nice idea though


    Now wearing Amorito as SotE.

    Happy May Day and power to the workers of the world.
    I can't resist quoting my adored late Pa, who every May Day would tell a story that culminated in the memorable saying:
    "Hooray, hooray, the first of May.
    Outdoor sex begins today!"

    I won't be indulging in that particular outdoor activity today, but I will be wearing Femininite du Bois to go for a tramp in the woods with my family as it's a public holiday here.

    Have a lovely day, all.

    For me, another one of The Girls I Came to the Party With...not exactly a "classic" but for me a winner since she appeared on the scene eight or nine years ago - J'Adore by Calice Becker for Dior.

    This was one of those happy occasions where the e-tail ordered Real Thing matched the magazine scent strip! LOVED the original adverts with the beautiful blond in a pool of molten gold, wearing ubangi-style rings up her long gorgeous neck, her skin Goldfinger-ed and shimmery. LOVED the play on words....and this seamless blend of violets and peaches and melons and muguet over soft sandalwood works rully well on my bod.

    Wordbird, your beloved late father sounds like a hot hoot.

    Lovely spring weather, but it's still a bit chilly, so I'm in the simultaneously light and slighltly warm Yves Rocher Voile d'Ambre.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin...

    Love's True Bluish Light for me today. It'll fade by late afternoon, when I intend to go sniffing at Saks. Why Saks? Because Saks in the only store in NY that carries the older Diors.

    I couldn't help myself and wore the Un Bois Vanille from Musse once again. It's just toooo good!!

    Went shopping today where I got myself a lovely knitted black scarf (been needing something black to add to the scarf collection!), and a gorgeous pair of suede black boots for winter. I'm VERY fussy when it comes to boots - I hate leather, I hate pointy toes, and I don't want heels because these are for everyday wear. These ones fit the bill perfectly and $80 wasn't really too bad at all! The boyfriend tried to convince me to get a pair that he liked (long, skin-tight and heeled) but I really didn't see how much practical wear I'd get out of those ones, even if they WERE pretty sexy...

    While I was there I had a quick sniff in Myer: Agent Provocateur Strip and Miss Dior Cherie Printemps (not sure on exact name, it's the pink redo). Strip came out powerful and.. incensey? It soon dried down to talcum powder and pink musk stick lollies. Printemps honestly felt the exact same as Cherie, only a teensy bit lighter. Well, at least I can save my money on these two.

    It's Dzing for me today. Today is a good day/ bad day. I am taking our classroom rat to the vet to either get a tumor removed or have her put to sleep. Then, after school, I may be getting a new dog. I have already met with the owner and the dog (through Last Chance Rescue) and she is bringing him to my house today for a home inspection. If I pass, she'll leave him! I'm so excited! It's an Old English Sheepdog- 5 years old. Yay!

    Wish me luck.

    Going to see my Doctor today who will be really pissed I have already diagnosed myself with cancer in my hip ( I thought she would choke me when I diagnosed myself with mitral valve prolapse and requested an echocardiogram, which she let me get any way). I will wear Chanel Cormandel, the doc always likes big perfumes.

    Good luck with the doggy, Lally. I am sure the owner will feel comfortable leaving the dog in a new loving home. Tdi, good luck at the doctors, don't self diagnose, it really pisses them off...especially if it turns out to be correct.

    Today I think I will do Cristal from Chanel; my little bottle is so vintage that is how it is spelt.

    Wordbird, I love your dad's carefree spirit.
    tdi and I could use some of Wordbird's papa's attitude cuz we're the worry-wort sorts (but I'm recovered from most anxieties now thanks to Paxil).
    lally, of course you'll pass inspection. Please put pix of your new baby in your avatar.

    Your right Quarry. I am a worrier. It comes from being so anal I think. Of course my anal retentivness is what makes me an excellent ICU nurse....you want someone like me taking care of you when you are laying in an ICU bed It is also what lends me to my self diagnosis that drives my doctor insane. Believe it or not I am really not a hypochondriac I tend to ignore symptoms for a very long time until I can not stand it any longer.....hence it took years for my asthma to be diagnosed. I probably could still use a little touch of Paxil or Prozac

    So I spent my day off on lawn care, organic lawn care, after pushing DH for years to lay off the chemicals.
    I found an environmentally safe corn gluten weed preventer and organic fertilizers. It's a bit pricier but what the heck, it's way safer. Hoorah for corn gluten!

    To celebrate that success, I am wearing the original Vent Vert by Balmain. A green scent for an excursion into green-dom.
