And…my love for Lippmann grows again! I’ve been loving her Fall 2011 Collection and got a chance to wear her fabulous vampy burgundy this week- Single Ladies. Wow! It’s not a groundbreaking colour, but it is a classic that deserves a place in every nail polish collection. Deborah Lippmann has a gift for making her colours work on every skin tone- she keeps them neutral. Not too blue, not too [...]
I have been coming back around to rose scents lately. Interesting, rose is often associated in aromatherapy with “women’s issues” and helping to balance moods. That’s not to say men can’t benefit from the calming and soothing benefits of the scent of rose, but I notice when there are fluctuations of the hormonal kind I often crave rose. In my powdery scent post, I mentioned my love for Talco Delicato. [...]
Love the smell of clean laundry, fresh air & sunshine. I am a big fan of special scented deodorants, to the point where I rarely buy drugstore products anymore. I love the original Dove antiperspirant but prefer a special perfumed deo. I was at Sephora with my daughters the other day, and after about an hour of wandering we grabbed a few things and were leaving. The part of Sephora [...]
I’ve been looking for the perfect dark green nail polish for awhile now. I’ve had a few that really screamed “This colour is NOT for the over 40 crowd” and were just too juvenile, sparkly or bright. I have and adore Chanel Khaki Vert, but that is more of a muted neutral green. I’ve been thinking a deep dark almost black green, and with no shimmer preferably. Well, I pretty [...]
How swoony are these colours? Chanel’s Fall 2011 nail polish shades are simply to die for. Neutral but with a metallic sparkle and iridescent edge that makes them irresistible. As usual. I dithered over the three and ended up with Quartz, thinking it would get the most wear. It is a an elegant neutral taupe frost that reminds me of an Annabelle frosty polish I wore in the 80s. LOVE. [...]

Continuing in my beloved jasmine theme, I just have to share my latest love & obsession with you beauties. Thann Skincare, which I written about before here, has recently added a Jasmine Blossom Collection to their stellar skincare lineup. I can say honestly, that the scent in their Jasmine Blossom lotion is probably the most beautiful jasmine scent I have encountered. It is absolutely sublime and I am getting the [...]

Love to you all xo When you knew that it was over…Were you suddenly awareThat the autumn leaves were turningTo the [...]
As you know, I am a lover of jasmine perfumes. I was lucky enough to stumble up a Floris perfume windfall at Winners recently (like a Canadian TJMaxx) and one of my fave finds is Floris Night Scented Jasmine. Floris is an English perfumer that has been around for many years- it was actually founded in 1730 and you can read about the history here. It is a classic perfumery [...]
