    Catching up since Tuesday …

    Thanks for setting me straight on the Contemporary Arts Center, Evangeline.

    ExtremeK: Two hours at Barneys without fellow BNers in tow--just you, the SA and all those bottles? That's intense!

    Xscent: Don't be stingy with your demolition photos. Remodeling is a favorite porn.

    ErinK:
    My sample of Iris Prima arrived … So, the next few minutes kind of went like this: Oh man, heaven. This might be my new iris! This is fantastic! Tra la la! Wait -- what just happened? Why does this suddenly smell pretty and not like an iris perfume at all? Where did the iris go? Come back, iris.
    Eggs-Zak-Lee! That opening is one of the greatest a.n.d . t.h.e.n … why does it run away? Your comment: "anticipation is the greater part of pleasure," makes total sense to me, too.

    The Grand Budapest Hotel looks perfect, Mike!

    I'm wearing weird, wonderful, rosy Marni. I dumped a fair bit on this a.m., but will need a reapplication after lunch as it doesn't last very long.

    To participate in the unofficial poll you folks started:
    Cow muck • baby poo • cat pee (I'm good with barnyard smells.)
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    Good afternoon, all.

    I've been on a little Guerlain kick lately, and today it's Jicky EDP.

    Looking forward to Estee Lauder tomorrow, though.

    Xscent, my feet are screaming just looking at those boots! Oowwweee! Count me 100% not surprised at your artistic background I owe you a PM. And don't you just love Roberto's visual of Lui??!! LEMMING (Note my complete lack of desire for delayed gratification.).

    cello, which do you prefer, PG Cuir d'Iris or PdE Cuir Ottoman? Inquiring minds want to know

    Your self-discipline is admirable, ErinK -- completely beyond my abilities but admirable!

    Yep, Quarry, two whole hours, just me. When I was in Vegas, I spent about 2 hours at Barneys on each of 2 different days. There was a lot I hadn't sniffed. Love, love, love this habit o' ours.

    Kiliwia, I owe you a PM, but I totally want to do it!

    I'm glad it all worked out, kalli

    I'm craving florals, too, teardrop. This latest polar vortex isn't cooperating, though.

    People at work have realized I'm out all next week (hooray SPA!), but that meant today was a nightmare and tomorrow will be more of the same. But it's all worth it

    Oh, yeah, right, SotD! I compromised: I wanted flowers but I got below zero temps, so I wore L'Eau d'Hiver. Turns out I love heliotrope.

    It's Friday in my world and a long weekend, colour me happy.

    Thanks Cello and teardrop I’m a sucker for a pair of cute heels. Jon Honors seal of approval is more than I could hope for and the lyrics are a hoot (school girls? really?).

    Quarry I didn’t want to derail the thread as I go bit mad when talking decoré, architecture and renovations Grand Designs anyone? I’ll PM you demolition pics, I’m in the process of tearing out several bathrooms too.

    Kiliwia I have a bucket load of sunshine, frangipanis and cocktails for you here.

    ExtremeK you add art geek to my long list of geekiness. As for the heels, I’m short, I need to reach things and extra five inches helps (that’s my excuse anyway). Roberto's pic is brilliant, I admire anyone getting up that close for a snap.

    In Bel Respiro after a big run. Synching later as I don't think I have any Estee's so I’ll need to ask mum to bring something when we meet for lunch. She’s such a champ when it comes to my quirks.

    ExtremeK, glad you got home safely. This hard work is all going to be melted away this time next week.

    Can't wait to see your place post-reno, XScent. I know it's going to all be absolutely fabulous with lots of signature Xscent touches making it extra over the top special.

    After a grump-inducing day at work, I needed a comfort scent tonight (to go with my comfort wine) so reached for No.5 edt. And lots of it. And just because it sounded yummy (I don't have any ice cream), here is some vintage Angela Lindvall for Chanel porn from fall 2001.

    Whew! A busy day-- technically not Thursday any more in Connecticut, but better late than never.

    I could not manage any scent today...I've been up to my eyes in college stuff all week. Specifically, their Financial Aid departments. It's been interesting discovering which schools have live people who answer the phones, which have a complicated answering system, and which don't return phone messages even after 2 days. Makes me think---these are the very financial aid officers we will have to communicate with (or play phone tag with) for the next 4 years. Some FAOs sound relaxed and encouraging, others seem to want to go out of their way to sound forbidding. One more factor to consider in evaluating college offers as they come in.

    Tomorrow we'll be tramping, again, all over the same campus we visited last Saturday, but this time it's "Honors program day" or some such thing, when my daughter can find out what exactly is entailed in the Honors program she applied to. Tour the Honors dorms, read the Honors students theses, etc. An all-day affair. Supposedly the applicants are to learn very shortly who did or didn't get accepted into the Honors program, which comes with sizable scholarships (75% or full-tuition). It just seems to me the college could have waited to hold this Honors day for the people they actually accepted into the program. Pretty much a waste of time for everyone else....

    I will wear scent tomorrow!
