It’s officially Spring now, and here the weather is beautiful. Sunny and warm, a little breezy, absolutely lovely, and it does not suit my mood at all. I’m sad and unfocused and scattered, I cry a lot. What I would give for a day or two of rain. I don’t have a whole lot to say today, as I am exhausted from the latest crying jag. But I thought I’d just mention what I’ve been wearing lately, and hopefully that will be good enough for now.
Bottega Veneta- Woody, leathery, wonderful. A bit defiant, like wearing backless chaps, but obviously more subtle…and just as tough.
Jour d’Hermes- A light floral, modest and unassuming. This one made me smile (how rare is that?) and want to put on a sundress and go pick daisies. I would like to get some and make it my Official Springtime Fragrance.
Prada Candy- For comfort. The vanilla and benzoin are always wonderful to wrap up in, safe and warm.
Estee Lauder Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang EDP. Lovely, dark, and deep, to borrow from Robert Frost. Very soft and cozy, perfect for cooler nights.
Moving on to the Product of the Day: Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow in 2E, which is a matte dark brown. I use this as a liner every day. I used to smudge it on and then put a line of black liquid liner on top, but lately I’ve been giving myself a break and skipping the liquid liner. Now I’m just using Aqua Shadow to line the top lids, then mascara. It’s a slightly softer look, and I couldn’t be happier to no longer be a slave to my liquid liner (though i’ll surely pull it out for certain occasions). Plus I find that with a simpler eye, I can play around more with my lip color. Anyway, I love Aqua Shadow. It goes on dark and creamy, smudges nicely, and sets beautifully. Holds up pretty well through torrents of tears.
