    Default SotD Thursday, 25 April 2013

    Good morning,

    The almost summery days continue ... and a (positively) busy weekend (my dad is coming) and a week off are lying ahead.

    Vintage Vol de Nuit Extrait today. This one is a b*tch today... disappeared into (almost) nothing after 2-3 hours. The new extrait is wonderful, too and more reliable.

    Best to all

    Oh, we are smelling good. Defying rainy reality I went to bed with Guerlain's tropical Mayotte, and woke up to a coffee-ish drydown! Nice way to start my day (:

    Hello everyone. Another sunny day in London... it's just so nice! The wisteria in my garden is shooting out buds. A bit late for we had a long cold winter, but I can't wait for the blooms.

    Do happy

    Agreed - the latest formulation is fantastic. I was so impressed when Mimi and I tried it in London that I returned the following week and bought a bottle. Quality juice, unlike (sadly) the current L'Heure Bleue Extrait which is an insult to the name



    Guerlain here too - Habit Rouge.






    Have a great evening and make the most of the fine weather,G - reverting back to the norm again from tomorrow.

    I know I told people about two years ago when my bottle was exchanged into Vol de Nuit.

    Sardines are very fine with me, Wolfie! Reminds me of my wonderful holiday at the Lisbon coast two years ago.

    Good morning everyone! Massive rain AGAIN today. After they told us just a few sprinkles, it's been downpouring for a couple hours. This is going to play havoc with the existing flooding. Plus I'm just OVER THE RAIN.

    Twolf, I read your Italian food list and started drooling! I'm afraid I've had to cut it mostly out as well. I can't have the pasta, even when it's whole wheat. I've thought about doing a modified lasagna using the meat, cheese, sauce and either no noodles or zucchini slices for the noodles. Wonder if you've had any luck with things like that for substitutes Larimar. I've had to become quite creative so that's a plus!

    Today I'm wearing my tiny sample of Sublime Vanille, I had to pull it out after Perfume Posse did a vanilla post. I wore it once before, and hadn't read the raves on it, and wasn't wowed.

    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..."

    Good morning, everyone!

    Well, there's never a dull moment during festival season, and the big'un starts today - Jazz Fest.

    Here's Allen Toussaint from 2007, welcoming everyone to the party.




    It's also Ella Fitzgerald's birthday, appropriately enough. Happy Birthday Ella!

    Good morning! It's very foggy and cold right now, but it's suppose to be a sunny day with temps in the 40's, which will be nice for a change.

    Larimar, enjoy your week off and have fun visiting with your dad!

    Love your picture of the lavender field, Roberto!

    Hello all,

    A lazy start to the day following last night's celebrations, now l'm finally dressed & scented, with B&BW's Tiare Flower. lt's warm & sunny here, so l'm heading outside for a spot of gardening.

    Twolf, l agree that Kalamata olives are absolutely the best, & l wouldn't buy any other. l've eaten them in Kalamata a few times, too. And l always buy Greek olive oil. Greek & Moroccan food are favourites of mine, as well as ltalian.

    elizrj, have you ever tried making moussaka? lt's very similar to lasagne, but made with layers of aubergine or potato instead of pasta. Delicious!

    Thanks again for all the birthday wishes everyone, have a great day!

    Good morning, all. I'm wearing the Jardin sur la Toit, very appropriately matched to the outfit, too, slim white crop pants and turquoise t-shirt. I look like I smell today. White pants are pretty ambitious for me, not sure they fit my lifestyle, LOL. I keep having to throw them in with the kitchen towels to get bleached when I get something on them.

    Oh, and big yes to the Italian foods, mmm. Sardines? Yes. Anchovies....We make pizzas sometimes at home, and I make one for me with anchovies and hot peppers and kalamata olives. Between the anchovies and the hot peppers, I can count on nobody else touching that one so I can take leftovers for lunch

    elizrj, the few times I eat lasagne (lunch is better timing than dinner) I don't mind the noodles, but I do mind that they are made of durum wheat semolina as their glycaemic index is much more favorable versus noodles from plain white wheat flour. I often have funghi porcini in them instead of meat. So very yummy!
