    Happy Birthday Larimar, Kalli and Vintage Poison! and healing vibes, Teardrop!

    Yesterday I had no idea what would sync with Christchurch, NZ (thoughts included church-y scents like Avignon, or milky/wooly scents due to the high number of sheep), but ultimately decided that I would go with what was (to me) a hot-weather scent, since winters are hot in NZ, and went with what I think of a "summer-in-Boston" fragrance: [b]Imaginary Authors L'Orchidee Terrible. Wearing it again today.

    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

    I love this one, so it seems like we're among the few! I keep stalling on buying a bottle, but I've happily used up two samples.

    I'll definitely be sharing pics after I take the plastic off tomorrow. I've had a half-sleeve on my left arm for about...15 years (!!!), and I finally decided to take it down to my wrist. I stayed scentless for the appointment but am now in a cloud of HoM's Witchmusk, from a sample.

    Happy basenotes birthday then, Larimar. Happy regular birthday to VintagePoison & Kalli, where ever they are I bet they still smell good.

    Jon, that sacks of winking cats has me mesmerized. THAT should get anybody feeling better.

    Speaking of Kelleybelle, I rubbed down in Pacifica French Lilac body butter and topped it with A Lilac a Day. I don't see any way to avoid doing the same tomorrow.

    Hi, dear Q. The lipstick is L'Oreal 262, Fresh as a Rose, and has a bit of an orangey/apricot cast that does not register in this photo. I am forever in search of the perfect rose, not too dark, not to light, slightly cool, a little sheer. In fact, I'd love to find one that looks like the photo irl. I generally end up buying three shades to find one that comes close.
    The bolero jacket I'm wearing over the camisole is a fave and a find, XCVI, on ebay, for a song.
