Favorite Perfumes

I LOVE PERFUME! I love all kinds. I love smelling delicious. I love the cutie bottles. I love everything about it! Here are some of my favorites, directly from my Sephora "My Favorites" list.

  • Armani Codee Pour Femme: fruity but still rich with a bit of woody and vanilla undertones...YUM! Per Sephora it's Fresh. Sexy. Feminine.
  • Juicy Couture: fruity, again, but with rose undertones...YUM! Per Sephora it's Flirtatious. Romantic. Precious.
  • Gucci Envy Me: floral, peppery, musky...YUM! Sephora says it's Daring. Sexy. Arresting.
  • Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll: an oldie but a goodie! Warm floral...YUM! Per Sephora it's Precocious. Beautiful. Enthralling.
  • Lacoste Touch of Pink: Herby, vanilla, rich and warm...YUM! 3 useless adjectives from Sephora: Whimsical. Daring. Captivating.
  • Philosophy Amazing Grace: graceful and clean!
  • Estee Lauder Pleasures Delight: near Perfection!!!!
  • Tiffany's Sheer Tiffany (PERFECTION!) hurts me to talk about this but I'll see if I can try. It was discontinued a long time ago but it's the best fragrance I've ever smelled in my life! I LOVE Sheer Tiffany. Sometimes I smell the remnants of my empty bottle and want to cry...well, maybe not that dramatic but I love it and am SO sad it's gone forever. I don't want to be mad at Tiffany's but I AM! How could they do this to me?! While I love these other fragrances nothing can stand up to this one!

Taco Bell...a Classy Establishment

True story...yesterday I popped in to Taco Bell to get my usual 8 Weight Watcher's point bean burrito and Diet Pepsi. I had to wait forever and while I was waiting there was an unfortunate looking woman getting a drink running around like a chicken with it's head cut off! Understandably, I kept my distance. A construction working gentleman went up to the drink machine and was staring, like everyone else in the place, at the unexplainable craziness. It was shortly explained. The woman leaned over the the construction worker and said something along the lines of, "my meth high is wearing off." Not that this alone is not an amazingly hilarious story but here's the best part...the man leaned over to her and said "me too." I kid you not, I saw this with my own eyes and heard it with my own ears. Classy...only at Taco Bell (well, maybe at Captain D's too.)

The Twilight Obsession Continues...

Today's the day, the day that Twilight comes out on DVD. Are we all celebrating? I'm salivating, does that count? I hurried my little self to Target to pick up the 18 disk special feature galore super-fest edition this morning and snagged the last one (OK, there were about 200 still left but it's so much more dramatic if I had to wrestle a small child to the ground for Edward...I'll do it, trust me). OK, let's be honest here, Twilight sucks. Every thing about it sucks but it just so happens that the most perfect character in the history of "literature" appears in interesting concept. The books are so predictable and poorly written and the movie is almost as bad...spider-monkey anyone? yet I keep reading, watching it. It IS like my own personal brand of heroin! Until I watched the movie again I didn't realize how dreamy Carlisle was...Edward #2 perhaps. If it weren't for that pesky Edward Cullen I wouldn't have anything to do with this pop-culture non-sense that is Twilight but I can't help it, I LOVE him. I really do, like I LOVE Colin Firth, Alan Rickman, and James McAvoy...true love. Although the previous three happen to be real and Edward Cullen happens not to be...hmmm. I will watch this mediocre movie and read of Isle Esme until this deep obsession passes.

Note: I am not 13. I am a fully grown, professional woman with a doctorate degree. Is there a problem with me or with Twilight?
