    Hope that Baldufita's little one has a fun birthday!

    Suffering a brief bout (I hope) of insomnia...my day ended poorly yesterday with an outrageously unprofessional email (I should clarify - I'm the recipient, not the sender.). I did take a moment to reply to the SOB (civilly) - whose nasty-gram likely is a result of his laziness and incompetence - but I think he's messed up in the head to send something so offensive through email.

    I do really wonder about people who hide behind the anonymity and/or 'facelessness' of email to behave atrociously.

    Anyhow, so I'm up before 4, feeling very tired of dealing with jerks...needing a hug...splashed on a bit of something nice to cheer me up (& hopefully get back to sleep)...

    Boucheron by Boucheron

    Now just a sample, but I think it may well be worthy of a FB one of these days. A well-done orange blossom never fails to cheer me up....even if just a little...

    Well, Raindrop, at least you smell WONDERFUL! Hugs to you.

    I'm off to work in Eau de Campagne, perhaps the greenest fragrance I own. Love it!

    Blessed birthday wishes to Baldufita's little darling!

    Happy Saint Patrick's Day.

    Wore Montale's Golden Aoud layered with TDC's Osmanthus last night. Now, THAT was awsome!

    Today I am wearing TDC's Sublime Balkiss and loving it.

    Poor (((Raindrop))), hugs to you. I had my own bout of insomnia last night, thanks in part to my cat horking beside my bed.

    Today I will wear knee-high green socks and Tabac Blond.



    And, I will go to the dentist.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day, all!

    Shades, have a great week off!


    Spent time at Dr office yesterday, doing blood work, etc. Trying to track down the cause of my insomnia/fatigue. Probably hormone related, but not sure yet. Menopause is a bitch. (All males accept my mea culpa and talk amongst yourselves).

    AM: Dia
    PM: Eau Sauvage
    Bedtime: Cristalle au Vert

    Today:

    I'm wearing Covet today, and that's about as green as I do.

    Thanks Lessa! I'm not off all week, but it will be a nice mini-vacation! (NCAA basketball starts tomorrow!!)

    Happy St Patrick's Day to all

    Happy St. Patrick's Day! It never occurred to me to wear a green scent today -- yet another reason why I am glad to be a part of this community. So, I will be spritzing on something green in a few minutes, either Chanel No. 19, or Givenchy III, most likely.

    Take care, all.

    Lots of green today, and I'm no different. Wearing No 19.

    Such wonderful pics today. Lessa, the menopause poster really cracked me up. Ain't it the truth??

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Evening all,

    found a bag yesterday full of samples which my DH had been kind enough to put away for me and then forgetting where he put it. There are 20-odd samples in it and I was so happy I could have cried!

    That's why I'm wearing L'Artisan's Tea for Two from a sample today. I can't get enough of the stuff and I think a FB is in order.

    Hello dear BNers - Thanks for the hugs for this silly insomniac (sigh). I did manage to go back to sleep for another hour or so...and after a quick shower to wake up (I'm always a bit "dull" after sleeplessness) - went back to my sample of

    Boucheron

    Good stuff, this one. Now, should I get the mini or set of minis or the FB? Rei Rien (not affil) has this cute set of minis, but then again, I really like this fragrance a LOT, so maybe the FB is a good investment . I wonder if it comes in higher strengths. too...hmmm

    Wednesday is turning out a heck of a lot better than Tuesday. I don't want to bore you with the details, but doing good things for other people...it really does cancel out a lot of the anger that came with being dumped on by some ingrate.

    I feel like the universe is working today...hugs to all...

    More earthy greenness with an evening layering experiment: Safari edp and Encre Noire. The extra dark vetiver really adds to the crisp green floral.

    That does sound like a killer combo. Nutty vetiver, rubbery vanilla, and galbanum chypre overload. Nice!
