    Default SotD Tuesday, 5 July 2011

    Good morning all,
    Rose Oud, By Kilian from a sample... I have two very generous samples of this from 'my' dear SA at my favorite store.
    I smell fantastic, however, my foot does not look or feel nearly as fantastic. WTF is it with my feet this year? The house move is done, but that literally very last thing that landed on my foot wasn't the best of ideas ...
    I will have to have this checked today. Deep sigh comes from the again (slightly) elephant-footed Larimar... hello, karma, could you speak up to me less cryptically

    Hello all. Wearing Fantasque by Louis Feraud, this is actually an Avon fragrance from 1982 discontinued and then brought back in the 90s. I did own in the 80s but the one I have now is 90s. Actually forgot all about it until yesterday, this is a great chypre.

    Thank you all for your kind wishes! Nothing is broken, that's all that matters for now. I'm spending the day with my dad in my old hometown near the Swiss border. I'm being pampered and spoiled by my dad... love this. Been to the mountains for the view, lunch snack and a couple of espresso and will be served a lovely dinner, I am sure, at a nice restaurant in the woods. A fantastic summerday here (not too hot and not humid)!

    I can see me going thru this decant very fast.
    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    Hi ~ A quick in and out to say I've been offline and out of our main living/working space because the doofus who supposedly maintained/repaired our 3-year-old A/C system two weeks ago apparently didn't check to see that it worked -- left us miserable this past weekend, messing up plans to entertain out-of-town relatives. With a whole wall of windows facing sunrise, it's already 85°F in here. Heading to a cooler spot, sans fragrance, until two A/C guys get here this morning.

    Larimar, perhaps in your chart there is some kind of 12th house astrological activity which would affect your foot (I’m serious). I hope it gets better soon. I’m glad nothing is broken – lots of small bones in our feet.

    Hello everyone!

    Tony surprised me with a mini-vacation up in Kohler, so we spent the last five days playing tennis, swimming, getting massages and just all-around being pampered! The food was good too, so I suppose I should also include eating and admit to how much time we spent doing that, lol! I didn't have much time to plan before we left, so I had my usual summertime decants of Dune, Belle de Soleil, No19, Quartz, La Perla, Fleurs de Bulgarie ...though I'm sure I mostly smelt of sunscreen and chlorine, which I also find quite agreeable!

    Okay, enough about that - I'm now in Estée. Y'all have a great day!





    Happy Birthday Dennard - have a wonderful time on your special day!

    Larimar, best wishes to you and Le Foot d'Elephant. BTW, same foot? Prop it up and avoid moving too much, tomorrow you can start doing alphabets (rotating it to write the letters).

    Robin, those are cuuuuuuuute. Is the red pair suede? The brown, apart from being my favorite color "cognac" in shoes and purses, is classy.

    Q., hugs to you. There is a cold front moving our way, perhaps it can cool us all down some.

    Dennard, happy birthday and many fragrant returns.

    I have had one of them "ain't got nothing to wear" moments this morning, settling down on DK Gold.

    Twolf, the red sandals are a hot pink dyed calf leather with the ropey stuff on the heels like espadrilles, not sueded. They are Via Spiga "Cain" sandals.

    The brown ones I have been watching on Zappos for about 8 months I think...I really wanted these but they were too much $, and you know, they get discounted over time...Waiting, waiting for them to come down in price enough, looking each week to see they still had my size available, they finally did get low enough in price so I pounced! They are Cole Haan "Stephanie". I think it's kind of funny shoes have names like that.

    And, to get back on topic, I am suprised how good the Tabac Aurea actually smells in the summer! I thought of it only as a fall/winter smell and was kind of hesitant to try it in our hot humid time, but it isn't cloying and the smell goes pretty well with the heat. Although i think it still is more of a cold weather scent (and is the FB I want to buy this fall) it is a good alternative to the floral/fruit/citrus/musk stuff that have been smelling good to me in summer.

    Swooping in for a stealth posting today - Keeping things light in terribly humid weather with Annick Goutal Eau du Ciel, one of the few fragrances featuring violet that doesn't become a fuzzy, powdery mess on my skin. Light, but also a bit sophisticated in my book.

    Eau du Ciel Notes: Linden, iris, Brazilian rosewood, violet.
    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... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
