Hello all. SL La Fille de Berlin
Good morning all!
Today is Daim Blond SL
I am about to spray on some Hot Couture.

Good morning all !. Here's hoping everyone has a great week
SotD is Millesime Imperial.
Happy Birthday rtamara41
Many Happy Returns, rtamara!
Keeping it plain today.
Happy Birthday Rtamara!
Good morning. Phew! Well I think that we have just about turned the corner this weekend with the new house, so it's now about putting together and finishing. Nearly there! Which is great because it means that I'll have much more time to hang out with you guys. It's been a hard couple of months though. I do really like working on the house but I don't like trying to fit in a full time job too! All work and no play makes Foustie grumpy!
Back to Black today.
Bonjour!... Happy Birthday, rtamara41!

Happy Birthday rtamara41!
from a decant
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
Clarice Lispector ( 1920-1977) - Perfumes da Terra / Earth Perfumes
Happy Birthday rtamara!!
SotD is Eau d'Hadrien edp, an older batch. I do not care for the current version.
Hubby is still sick, just a nastier-than-usual cold. He even stayed home from work, which he almost never does, since he doesn't get paid for sick days. It's a common thing in his industry for employers not to pay for sick days-- so of course the employees go into work sick and infect others. Terrible policy.)
Hello everyone -
I'm in Bottega Veneta for ballet this morning. I really don't give this enough play, but I do love it nonetheless. ♥
Y'all have a great day!
Happy Birthday rtamara, wherever you are!
Oh androidi, that's another one of my favorites. I think you smell exquisite ...anything but plain!
Foustie - it sounds like you're at the fun part now! Hang in there - you'll be relaxing in your fantastic new home and enjoying all the fruits of your labor before you know it!
Get well wishes to the hubs, 30 R. You already have so much on your plate, but I know you'll take good care of him. Just be sure to take care of yourself while you're at it - we don't want you getting it, too!
Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan
Good morning! Our storm hasn't shown up yet, but they are still saying we will get
8-12 inches of snow by the time it's over tomorrow. Please, please, please be wrong.
Happy Birthday, Rtamara! I hope you have an extra special day!

Have a good day, everyone!

Wearing Joy today!
Sorry about the sick days, 30Roses. My employer pays for sick days, but Katie bar the door if you use more than 3! And I work at a hospital where you'd think they'd at least allow you to use your "allotment" without write-ups and general nonsensical behavior.
Happy birthday to RTamara!
Neil Morris Prowl today. So nice. Managed to be restrained enough in the application
Good morning everyone. Hope everyone is off to a great week. Seriously need spring here, Winter + Monday's is a bit too much by this time of year.
L'Eau Ambrée by Prada from my decant today.
RTamara, Love You, Birthday Girl!
Would kidnap you and take you out for drinks if I were in your neighborhood.
Androidi, a belated birthday greeting to you, dear.
Speaking of "android" … I read last night that Photobucket has issues to work out. Folks on some android devices are not seeing photos hosted on that site. I'm guessing Kiliwia has a second-generation Kindle, so she can see all posted images. Lilybelle and I are using first-generation models and suffer the Photobucket affliction. For example, Renee's cake above should be visible to all since it comes from Webfetti, while the Photobucket-hosted photo of a lounging RTamara below will render as only a blue question mark on some android devices.
Now that I'm on the computer, I can see Mike's inviting new quarters and Jon's ducky photos -- all of which make me wish I could input myself into those digital scenes (and in the company of those dear souls, too!). Winter is truly lingering here.
More vibes for Mr. Roses ~~~ heal, heal, heal.
Glad to hear we're going to be getting larger quantities of Foustie!
When I clean the house, as I MUST today, I like to be alone. Wearing Jo Malone Fresh Mint Leaf ought to drive Mr. Q out of here and back to his shop. He's got a little parlor stove back there and all his tools and a view of his wildlife feeding station and his air rifles (for picking off invasive, non-native sparrows), so don't pity his banishment.
I've just begun playing with my just arrived parcel full of samples- DelRae Bois de Paradis on the left and Arquiste Anima Dulcis on the right.
Have a nice Monday
"Your fragrance with a fume of iodine" L. Cohen
Mom fell in her bedroom, gashed her temple, bled all over the rug (scalps bleed a lot), dragged herself into the living room and speed-dialed the first button she could reach, a friend in FL, who called me.
Hubby and I rushed over and found her on the floor. We called the nurses, who called the ambulance, and she's now on her way to the ER, where I am now headed and expect to be for the rest of the day. After that, who knows, depending on if she broke anything (I don't think she did-- she's alert and not complaining of pain.)
Prayers are welcome!
Happy Birthday, Rtamara! I hope you are having a lovely day on your birthday.
Aha, Quarry, that explains the kindle glitch. I LOOOVE that photo of Rtamara! That takes me right back to NOLA. We had such a great meet up, didn't we?
No SotD for me yet, but I'm craving simple roses so I will probably go with that. See you later and I hope everyone is having a good day/afternoon.
Oh my goodness, 30 Roses! I hope your mother will be ok. That is very upsetting. I'm so sorry.
We are back, long exhausting trip -- 9 states in 5 days, came back home in the dark, in freezing rain, 45 mins later than planned. In one piece though.
30R., most positive vibes to you and your family. Somebody somewhere should give you a break some time, I know....
Ineke Briar Rose
Happy birthday Rtamara!
Hooray, Foustie! I'm crossing my fingers for some before and after photos! I miss working on a house; the pleasure I got from Quarry's photos borders on the creepy. I may need instead to content myself with doing a proper spring cleaning of my apartment and ordering some new prints for my walls (photos from my vacations and such). Perhaps some new curtains for my bedroom ...
Teardrop, is La Tulipe the only Byredo sample you have? How do you like it? I haven't sniffed anything from that house, but I'm intrigued by the descriptions of a few of their fragrances, including La Tulipe. I'm also nosing around (heheh) Ineke's sampler set, as I haven't tried anything from that house, either....
Anyone else have thoughts/experiences with Byredo and Ineke?
30Roses, my goodness, I'm so sorry! I'll be thinking healing thoughts for all of you -- please take care of yourself, too.
SotD is Histoires de Parfums 1804 (George Sand) -- pineapple with a Visa vibe.
Welcome home, Twolf -- glad to have you back safely. I hope you'll have some time to rest before heading back to work. I'm laughing at your SotD. I must have still been typing as you posted. How do you like Ineke?
