It's Monday and National Cranberry Relish Day. Birthdays: Abigail Adams, André Gide, Hoagy Carmichael and Billie Jean King. What fragrance are you wearing?
I'm in 4160Tuesdays Another Kiss By The Fireside.
Reminder: 11/26 will be Hide My Credit Card Friday. In honor of Black Friday / Buy Nothing Day, wear a fragrance (presumably from a sample) that you're itching to buy but don't own yet. (This is a repeat from 2017; suggested by Lovestosmellgood.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2021, where I'll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.

Good morning and yikes Monday! ?
Sotd is Gentle Fluidity Gold. Although the note are very different except for the vanilla I think it reminds me a lot of YSL Libre Intense. I think I need to wear one on each arm to compare.
Currently drinking Fauchon Blended Tea, black and green tea blend with vanilla, lavender and citrus. I added a splash of milk. Mmmmm.
Yikes Monday is right! I don’t know how I’m going to get it all done this week.
Your tea sounds delicious!
Good morning and the black Friday emails are coming in hot!
Three cups of coffee and Sycamore ought to do it.
Boy are they ever!
I like your perfume and coffee choice this morning
thank you ltsg! Its always the same three cups of coffee, but then comes the fragrance choice.
I’m wearing Profumum Roma Audace, which is a vetiver scent that I am enjoying. I’m continuing to go to samples and discovery sets and decants that I haven’t tried before or at least in a really long time.
I’m wearing Diptyque Kiomanthe from a sample, which is depressing because it’s beautiful but too expensive.
I’m teaching, grading, and preparing for tomorrow’s parent-teacher conferences. I dread the conferences, but only because I find it challenging to have 30 meetings in a day and still make sense.
Our school’s students voted cranberry relish their least favorite holiday food, so I guess we won’t be celebrating today!
Is this the new Diptyque. The Bergdorfs SA sent me a card in a baggie soaked with something Diptyque and said it was so exclusive that there are no samples to be had!
BG is killing me.
Not new (2017?)—just part of some fancier selections. I’ve only ever seen them on Diptyque’s website.
I used to hate it, now it is one of my favorite Thanksgiving foods
Glad you came around
Oh, I love cranberry relish, the tartness is so appealing! A friend makes a home made relish and adds hot peppers. Tart and spicy? (that could be my stage name some day….)
Sign me up!
Whoa, that sounds delicious!
Just leaving the circus and stepping into some heavy fog. Still wafting JM Myrrh and Tonka. Tonight is my Friday so I’m very happy! It also helped that I got my B12 shot and I’m wearing my favorite Lhasa Apso socks! ?
Woo hoo! To a 4-day (?) weekend! And of course you smell fabulous.
Unrelated, would you mind posting the link to the finger crochet site that worked for you? Thanks.
Yes, 4 day weekend! Woot! Woot!
Here’s the video I used. If you decide to give it a whirl, let me know how it turns out?
B12s are a good thing!
I have a friend who is just about certain she is going to be a traveling nurse. In our area.?
I immediately thought of you.
Hope she likes it. I would recommend she understand what “travel nursing” is for IRS/tax purposes. There are some things that are red flags, including contracts in or near your permanent domicile. There are a lot of governmental rules and guidelines. I know a nurse who ended up owing the IRS tens of thousands of dollars…?
I’ll bet she has no clue. She just hears how much $ the traveling nurses make versus her current job.
Thanks for the tip. Will def pass on.
Commando for doctor’s appointment this afternoon. We have reverted to holding classes M/T of this (US) holiday week, after a brief window (2018, 2019, and I guess 2020) of taking the full week as a break. I had no trouble finding a parking spot this morning — easily 3x the usual open spaces — so I think many students have already left.
Drinking sub-par campus coffee, now meeting with a student — so signing off!
Sorry no break, but at least you got parking!
A friend just told me he was watching a news program, and the interviewer complimented a male guest on his fragrance. He said he was wearing Jo Malone, and my friend is now curious about the brand. I think of it as mostly feminine, but I see they have a lot of new scents and some aimed at men.
Are any of them worth recommending?
Dark Amber and Ginger Lily, in the black, not clear, bottle. I don’t know if it’s unisex, but I can easily picture a male wearing it. I bring home a couple of scent strips of it everytime I visit the Blue Mercury a couple towns from me. I keep one in my room, in my car, and they last for a while. It’s quite heavenly.
I love that idea of the scent strips, GateGirl!
Also in the black bottle Myrrh & Tonka. Unisex to me.
Maybe sea salt and wood sage, as it’s not a limited edition and easy to find? Some of the limited editions ( the Bloomsbury whisky or tobacco ones ) and the vetiver or lavender ones are quite unisex. Nice to see you here. Have you been doing interesting fossicking and research recently?
Kanuka, it’s mostly just various distractions. One week, for example, I watched all of Bernadette Banner’s Youtube videos. She is a costume historian who reconstructs Victorian and Edwardian garments and is generally delightful.
I did finally finish The Cartiers by Francesca Cartier Brickell, which I highly recommend. Perfume was added after Cartier had ceased to be a family business, so we don’t get any insights into how that developed.
Nonetheless, I was intrigued to read that, in 1938, the manager of the Paris branch, Louis Devaux, became interested in starting a perfume line after observing how successful this had been for Chanel and Worth. Unfortunately, one of the Cartier family members objected. Devaux had planned to research the idea further and propose it again later, but World War II intervened.
It’s so tantalizing to wonder how Cartier’s sense of luxury and style, and their mantra “Never copy, only create,” would have manifested in a perfume!
I love Sea Salt and Wood Sage, the Amber & Ginger Lily, Pom Noir (my first purchase from JM), and Nectarine Blossom & Honey.
Pomegranate Noir is a popular, masculine-leaning scent.
Their Huntsman collection is marketed toward men. I particularly liked the Assam & Grapefruit from that foursome.
I’d give a thumbs up to Pomegranate Noir and Myrrh & Tonka.
Thanks, everyone! There are more options than I had thought — must check them ou!
In addition to other recommendations, 154 Cologne was originally created as a masculine cologne. Also, on Jo Malone’s site, in the Archives Collection (https://www.jomalone.com/online-archive-collection), Wild Fig and Cassis and Vlack Vetiver Cafe would be good on a man.
Thanks, Undina — great ideas!
Hi all, Monday came along too quickly! SOTD is Chanel’s Coromandel, I haven’t worn this in a while and it works well with the remaining bits of Bal à Versailles from last night.
Coffee consumed, I did foam rolling to losen up, shoes on and I’m out the door!
Foam roller both painful but feel good at the same time. Hurts so good..
It does! The youtube instructor mentioned ‘resting in the tender spots’ and even bend and extend the leg when you hit a knot for good measure.
All I can say is ‘ouch’.
Today was my first day of cold weather daily walking. Wonder if now that the going is tough, I will be tough enough to get going. LOL, it was also trash pick up day on my walk route so the city trash trucks were “following” me. ANNND, an early walk like today’s is in pre-dawn dark I and another walker scared each other when I ran crossing the street at an intersection and he was just coming up his driveway.
No perfume as I have today off and am headed to the mall to probably have my laptop battery replaced at the Apple store…I shall spray myself with abandon w/ testers later today and report back.
My rock star sister has her 12th and last chemo treatment today. ⭐️ ?? ♥️ Takes about 4 to 5 weeks for the drugs to wear off….hoping her appetite improves and she can put on some weight. Doctors are amazed she worked the whole time on her alternating off weeks.
Feeling so grateful just in time for Thanksgiving.? ? ?
Congratulations to your sister! Here’s hoping she can feel more like herself very soon!
Hooray for sis!!
Yay for sis!
What a journey and to see the end in sight. Definitely something to celebrate.
Congrats to your amazing sister. Here’s hoping she has an appetite for all the Thanksgiving goodies.
Your sister is a hero, now she can work on her appetite in time for Thanksgiving.
So happy for you and your dear sister!
Congratulations to you and your sister! I l?ve your bond.
Congrats to your sister! I am so happy for you both!
Yay for sis, indeed!!
Such good news on your sister!
Hooray for your sister, I’m so happy for her and for you!
Excellent news about your sister! Congratulations to her!
Sending yahoos and yippee-ki-yays to your sis!
More sample backlog homework today: testing DSH August Picnic and Je Suis la Lune. The former, cut grass and rhubarb with a whiff of apple; the latter, a sweet, clean jasmine with a creamy, dessert quality to it. It’s giving me Vanille Galante vibes, but it’s a bit thicker and heavier.
And just popping back in to report that August Picnic has now shifted to a full-on incense fragrance. How do you hide frankincense in a light, sunny little grass-and-rhubarb fragrance? Interesting sleight-of-hand, and an interesting effect, like scarlet and bronze leaf colors becoming visible after the masking chlorophyll disappears.
You had me at grass-rhubarb-apple, and now you are adding incense!?! BRB, adding this to my must-try list…
It’s interesting — I never got grass-rhubarb-apple-incense all at the same time; rather, it started off as just the first three, and then rather suddenly morphed into the fourth. I’m going to try it again tomorrow with a heavier hand.
August Picnic sounds really intriguing! The rhubarb + incense is making me think of Aedes de Venustas which I love.
I love that Aedes de Venustas, too! This was quite different, rather like a light little Demeter-esque grass-and-tart-fruit affair that 30 minutes later announced, “Wait, no, now I’m incense!”
I guess my Vilhelm samples came just in time for this challenge! Yesterday I wore Mango Skin and this morning I am in Dear Polly. Both are nice but neither of them are thrilling me at this moment. I’ve seen people rave about Dear Polly so I was hoping to be wowed a bit more, but maybe it’s just not for me! I am looking forward to a different fragrance experience every day this week!
Hope you will love at least one of them! Or not, they’re not cheap.
They are not! If I don’t love any of them, it just means I maybe spring for a Chergui decant… That would be less expensive probably.
Spent time in Lyric this morning and now in Ralph Lauren Romance parfum. Bath and Body is running a Buy 3 Get 3 Free sale this week. Got a few stocking stuffers and now waiting for Cyber Monday for what deals there are. I just want to get my Christmas shopping done and over with. Will be spending time cleaning and organizing after work in preparation for Thanksgiving.
I just want to even think about Christmas shopping, LOL…but really we don’t do many gifts anymore so it’s all going to be ok
Nice – I always make cranberry relish (with a lot less sugar than most and including zest of an orange).
This is another CP just perfect for me. So many samples and decants that I wish were full bottles. Today’s sample: Ormonde Jayne – Ormonde Woman.
For the first time in 30? 35? years I am not making a turkey and Mr. SP is very disgruntled about that. Still, Thanksgiving will be wonderful with a different protein source and lots of delicious sides. Time to branch out, I say.
I make my relish the same way, and a pinch of cinnamon. Makes the whole house smells great.
Oooo – great idea with the cinnamon!
What are you making in lieu of the Turkey? Maybe Mr. SP was looking forward to firing up the chainsaw?
Oldest son is making something for us – some kind of beef roast. It’s pretty special having our son cook something for us so I say “get over it” to Mr. SP (although I actually said it in a much nicer way.) I can make him a turkey another time!
Very true! The beef roast sounds pretty special. We’re having our Thanksgiving meal at Seasons 52 and at my sister’s place for dessert.
I love RB for a Thanksgiving meal! Mixing it up is fun! I used to host Thanksgiving for years but am glad to let other family take a turn (or three).
I’m happy to bring sides, spare chairs, wine, and help clean up. So I try to make it worth their while.
Good for you! Enjoy your son doing something special for the both of you.
Vegetarian is always told to bring her own food. I love my own goodness! ?
My Mom used to make a cranberry relish with chopped raw cranberries, some orange segments, and a bit of sugar. Delicious!
I always put orange zest in my cranberry sauce, too, and as an ardent jam-maker I *love* how pectiny the cranberries are and how quickly and perfectly it becomes jammy.
Little Biscuit hates turkey so I’m making lasagna for us, and wishing we had someone to share it with. Cranberry sauce has been requested, though, and it doesn’t really go with lasagna so I’m mulling over how to work it into the antipasti.
How about cranberry sauce with peanut butter cookies for a dessert?
Maybe cranberry sauce rolled up in crepes for breakfast, with sautéed apples?
With a little whipped cream or maybe some yogurt? Sounds yum!
That sounds great!
I just made an NYT recipe for lemon bars with a layer of cranberry sauce. I just made it my same old way, but would probably chop the cranberries a bit finer next time. It was deliciously tart!
So it was lemon + cranberry?
Wow, that sounds good!
Was not wearing perfume most of last week as the result of a cold, but I’m back now with Borneo 1834.
I am in no danger of ever actually buying a bottle of this because the price is just insane, but when I drain this sample I will probably go for a decant.
I am glad to see you’re feeling better! Borneo is pretty great juice. But I just can’t do those aspirational prices.
you smell wonderful. I have a bell jar, what was I thinking? I do love it.
I just made cranberry relish last night in preparation for Friendsgiving this week
Wearing Drama Nuui. I’m determined to thunk this bottle before the end of the month! Does anyone else feel the irrational need to finish an old bottle before starting on something new?
Buy Nothing Day will be easy this year: I’m getting my booster shot that day; and I just dropped a fortune on Genesis tickets! 25 years of being a fan, and this is my one and only chance LOL
Good luck on the booster! The news is confusing re: the definition of fully vaccinated. Some say you need the 3 shots and my brain kept thinking did they forget J&J again?
Oh how fun you will finally see them!
Wow! How did we get to 11/22 already?
SOTD: Akro Dark from split and very happy with this one. On me, it’s all dark chocolate and patchouli, no sugar added. Lasts a long time too which I appreciate
Isn’t it great? I love Akro Dark. Have you tried any of the other Akro’s?
I would love to try all of them and may have to after Dark. Impressive!
I liked all of them when I tried them almost 3 years ago in Antwerp. My favourite was Dark, but I wouldn’t mind a bottle of Awake (the coffee one) either. They are all bold and distinctive scents, the whisky one (can’t remember the name at the moment) is very interesting as well.
I like Awake as well. I think the whisky one is ‘Malt’.
SOTD = YSL Black Opium Extreme
From my swap stash. Nice, although I will put this in the category of money saved. It has strong florals vanilla and patchouli. I was supposed to get coffee and chocolate too but those were absent.
In other news, had my 1:1 with my boss and he said nothing about going into the office more often. I am ready though if I have to. Some of the other colleagues were told to be in on specific days but I don’t believe that applies to me since I have my own desk. Woo hoo, for now ?.
It’s a yucky gray day outside but at least we did not get the forecasted snow! I am not ready for ❄️.
Bring on the ❄❄❄! I love it!
I’ll send them your way ?.
Fingers crossed that you’ll be able to continue your less-days-in-the-office routine for many more months to come! How did we ever manage 5 days a week in the before times?!
I’m planning on Mondays and Fridays anyway and no make ups if I happen to be off on Mondays or if a holiday falls on a Monday.
No snow in my overnight forecast! Just a bit of rain.
Ugh, I also don’t like rain but it’s better than snow for sure!
It made for excellent sleeping weather, though. ?
I hope you can continue with your preferred schedule.
I think the original Black Opium has more of a coffee smell, but still not much to my nose.
I had a dental appointment this morning but now I’m home and wearing African Leather. I was wondering how an item gets to be named “National whatever Day.” Is there a fee involved? A government agency? Because I had no idea there was a National Cranberry Relish Day, and I think I’d like to join Friends of Cranberry Relish. They must have lobbied for the day, right?
You sort of imagine a figure behind a large oak desk with a pile of papers and a big rubber stamp as clerks rush in and out with suggestions. National beg bug day! Rejected! National cranberry day. Accepted! National car mat day? Make that international car mat day! Accepted!!!
For my part, I never met a cranberry relish I did not like.
I love African Leather and it would be a good choice for my Friday scent, since I’ve been hankering for its sexy leopard bottle for ages but just can’t justify the expense.
Wearing MCDI’s Le rivage des Syrtes, it’s lovely and has a nice presence without being intrusive.
Spent the day translating some really tedious stuff, still it needs to be done and it wasn’t that bad in the end.
It’s Voltaire’s birthday so feeling grateful for translators. Thank you!
Enclosed in drizzly mist again and all the sparrows are perched in the big silver birch waiting for me to go outside to scatter some seeds. I think some of them are looking a bit fat, more feather ball than bird, so I must be doing something wrong. Yesterday I walked in the botanic gardens and all the irises were in full bloom. Lots of purples, with Dogwoods flowering in the background. Wearing Chanel 19 to match and lingering in bed, about to get up.
How are you doing, actually? It’s lovely to see your poetic posts here again.
I’m good thanks. Still shuffling along.
Thant sounds like a lovely walk and it’s so good of you to feed the sparrows! There used to be so many but are now in recession. Yours will hopefully have plenty of energy stores to withstand the winter cold ?
It’s spring where I am, almost summer, and I have been watching all the fledgling coming down with the adults. We have a lot of blackbirds and they love apples.
Ohh of course, I didn’t remember that you live in Australia (I think?, where the Lamington cake is from ) Now that’s an even nicer walk! Sparrows and blackbirds are probably the same over there as they extend world wide, but so much other amazing unique fauna.. I’d love to see kookaburras for example.
no 19 sounds perfect for lingering in bed
Mmm, that all sound lovely. If I ever get married, it’ll be during dogwood bloom season so that I can wear them in my hair…
Lalique Le Parfumerie to continue my odd desire for vanilla. My sister gifted me one of her partially used Scentbird bottles a couple of years back, and I’m just now trying. Really enjoying it on a cold day, where we might not even hit 30 degrees.
At least it’s sunny. Yesterday was low overcast with deep gray clouds. I drove through a squall of sleet on my way home yesterday from a baby shower. The wind was so strong I didn’t need windshield wipers…it was almost like driving through a wild sandstorm. Last night I could hear the high-pitched whirrr of extreme winds outside.
Today is cleaning and market to buy all the potatoes and sprouts to bring for Thanksgiving dinner. Then a second attempt at the Wes Anderson movie – my husband had a big last week so we postponed.
What are you making with the potatoes and sprouts?
We are making mashed potatoes (really sinful ones with lots of butter and cream) and roasted Brussels sprouts. We are heading to new friends’ place. Someone else is bringing turkey and stuffing and another will bring other veggies.
My monday smells of Prada Infusion d’Oeillet.
A warm & spiced floral for a cold day is the right choice.
Sounds like a perfect choice! Carnation is an ideal comfort scent.
I have a mini of that I need to open. I love carnation. You smell really good.
I started the day in Shalimar Philtre and warming up to it. I think it’s bit airier and more lemony than the EDP with iris thrown in, the sillage is really nice. Now as evening scent spraying a bit of Grand Soir-to me a fougere masculine vibe (to me smells like lavender but it’s not in the notes) at the start but getting to the warming benzoin it’s a perfect cozy scent.
I too find that I like Philtre more as I wear it more!
You smell amazing, I love Philtre!
Early this morning I was in Byredo Bal d’Afrique and also Byredo lippy
Then, later after that faded parfum de bois 5th Avenue -roses and vanilla
I adore Bal d’Afrique, one of my favorites from Byredo. You smell lovely!
How do you like the Byredo lippy?
I am coming around to the new ?. Initially it was love, and looked so shiny and beautiful , not to mentioned the packaging. Then when I got home I was like meh ? But today I am really liking the color with what I am wearing
What is your hands down favorite lipstick brand, for a lipstick that does not dry your lips?
I’m brunette with blue eyes. Used to wearing berry-ish lipstick and fell for a Tom Ford free sample recently.
Not ltsg, but I too have light/medium brown hair and blue eyes. Got it when Chantecaille was having a 25 or 30% off deal: their Lip Veil in Iris. Site describes it as a vibrant, sheer raisin but wears as berry on me (am paler than the models the lipsticks are swatched on). Do not find it drying.
Very pale, too! Thank you!
The drying thing is a huge issue for me. I’ve been having good luck with Dior Addict Lip Glow and with the Rouje palettes, which are fun because you can blend your own custom shades.
That sounds like fun, too. Making your own. Thank you.
Tom Ford is very good, I have Casablanca which is a nude and I have brown hair /light brown/hazel eyes
My favorite lippy if you are worried about dryness is YSL,Rouge Pur Couture Satin Lipstick Collection. Also the rouge line from Chanel
Some collections like Kilian Givenchy etc have great pigment/color but I find them drying
Thanks! The resident ? expert.
I have a zillion old, old ones, but really was curious what you thought.
Thanks for the reds and breakdowns.
Brrrr. First really cold day here, highs below 40. But beautiful blue sky, which sets off so nicely a pine tree that is my yard. Most pines in our area are White Pines, but one of four in our yard is a Red Pine. When we first got our house, I thought maybe it was not long for this world, but an arborist pronounced it healthy. I found out that Red Pines are a more Northern species, Zones 3, 4 & 5 but we are Zone 6 so it is somewhat out of range. It is about 40″ tall, probably as old as our house, so 50+ years, and scruffy looking, but in a good way! I always feel happy when I see it on really cold days because I think, ah, this is why it has survived. Also, it is on on the Northwest corner of our small yard, which is the leading edge for the Winter storms. Some years, our White Pines have lost branches to the weight of snow and ice, but the Red Pine never has. SotD EL Amber Mystique, which is not piney but is woody. Happy Monday all, and off to read comments.
Silly question – do the Zones represent postal zones? Or pine zones?
Gardening zones. Some people call them plant hardiness zones.
Exactly. It’s not all that unusual to find a healthy specimen in a protected spot outside its zone…it just depends. But if you’re a gardener, zones are the best way to figure out what you’re likely to have success with.
Muse. Didn’t read the CP! I could invest in a full bottle, I wear this and Angel a lot.
Found a ton of samples last night. I can do the CP the rest of the week, minus the no buy. Sales! Next year!
If you buy it at Marshall’s, does it count?
Oooooh. I like your thinking.
I can already contribute to Friday’s CP. I am wearing Love in Black, finally got this sample out of my package. It smells EXACTLY as I imagined it to. Violet, violet and beautiful Creed interpretation of violets. I would love a bottle, of course.
Grumpy today. Not in the mood for Thanksgiving at all this year. I am fine with the concept of the holiday, but the actual execution of it can be so stressful, what with the expectations and traditions. Mr. Jalapeno has said that we are traveling out of state to celebrate at his older nephew’s place. His sister, other nephew, and step-mom will also be there. I am dreading it. DO. NOT. WANT!
SOTD = ELdO Experimentum Crucis EdP, from the sample stash.
The pandemic has exacerbated this type of grumpiness for me as well! I find that I have very low tolerance these days for such social activities, especially with the in laws. Hang in there, just tell yourself it’s only one day (or weekend)!
Sigh, sadly it’s the weekend. Maybe I should bring a nice, fat book?
Thanks for the moral support.
Sorry Jalapeno, that sounds draining. Maybe a fragrance force-field to go along with that nice, fat book?
You and Hajusuuri had the same idea! ?
Oy! It sounds like you can wear perfumes that can chase away the blues or counteract the unpleasantness!
Definitely tucking some samples into my toiletry kit!
Or one’s you love and are loud!?
I have my coping skills ready.
Loud perfumes can be my modus operandi when I’m feeling cranky and forced into situations!
That sounds trying, and doubly so with the dread! Hopefully the food will be good?
Not sure what is going to be on the menu, except for the broccoli casserole that Mr. Jalapeno and I are bringing, and the main course, which will be roast beef. Apparently one of the nephews can’t stand turkey!
I’m sorry jalapeno. I wouldn’t want to go either after the year you’ve had. I hope you end up having a better time than you expect. ( maybe you will get a funny story to tell!)
Thanks lillyjo. We shall see!
You have my sympathy! I hope it turns out better than you’re expecting, or alternatively, that you get to leave sooner than your worst fears
I had been eking out the last ml of my Trefle Pur, but since I just received a replacement bottle I am merrily spritzing away.
I’ve not commented in a few days because we drove to my parent’s place for Thanksgiving week. I’m very happy to get away for a week, and this time I brought my weighted blanket with me, which has helped tremendously with sleeping not in my own bed!
I will be able to participate in the CP this Friday too since I traveled with lots of samples and a couple of decants.
I’m wearing a dab of Bengale Rouge. I have a full bottle of this at home.
Hope that your Thanksgiving get away is a pleasant one!
Have fun tulipani!
You smell wonderful!
SOTD was the seasonally inappropriate Eau d’Ete. With this I have tried all of my PdN samples and it was one of the few that I am not into. Seems kind of muddled and the citrus is like juicy fruit gum with a touch of sour milk. I don’t much spice, but I see cinnamon is listed as a note and that one can sneak up and ruin a fragrance for me, so I’ll chalk it up to that. In a way I’m relieved to know that there are at least one or two PdNs that I can resist.
Drinking Tazo Joy and I’m impressed with how good it is for a bagged tea. This mixed with Twining’s Christmas Tea might be my new winter to-go tea.
Sounds like your SOTD was a swing and a miss. At least it wasn’t a scrubber.
I’ve been in LM Pistache body creme today along with Profumum Roma Acqua Viva. Sweet and fresh, but somehow it works.
Got my flu shot today. Feeling a little punky, but still got some dusting done in preparation for TG. ?
Flu shot twins!
That’s awesome! I hope you feel better tomorrow. ?
Super late. My daughter and I both had our flu shots today. I’m mostly tired. My sotd is Angel Muse. Lately I just want to wear my old familiar perfumes.
You are braver than I am! I’ve never gotten a flu shot.
Wore Muse today.?
