Don’t you love lists? I do, so here goes – my favorite things of the past months:
For a quick boost of both mood and confidence these are still favorites – Atelier Cologne Bois Blonds and Trefle Pur. Please, bear with me mentioning the Ateliers for the umpteenth time. 🙂
Finally for enjoying the last cold days Alahine is just the right choice.
I am currently re-reading Mandy Aftel’s Essence and Alchemy. It is such a beautiful and insightful book, if you haven’t read it yet, you should. Reading it makes me cherish the beauty of perfumes even more.
For your fiction fix I can recommend an old favorite I have dug out for the fifth time, I think. John Irving’s A Prayer for Owen Meany: It is perfect in every way.
I love perfume, no surprise there.
What I also love is lipstick and lip gloss and lip balm and lip stains and… you get the idea. I can safely disclose here – I have more than one lipstick. 🙂
Current favorites are:
Shiseido Shimmering Rouge Lipstick – a slim and elegant tube filled with a truly moisturizing, creamy and softly shimmering lipstick in gorgeous and wearable colors. I have it in Alabaster and Lounge.
Hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick in Embrace, so elegant, makes you feel very Old Hollywood.
Don’t fear the Reaper! Can’t get this out of my head these days…I wonder why???
Totally incongruously, as many say who know me, I love this:
And finally, this look into my past, I played the Viola in a string quartet in my home town. With this quartet by Dvorak, we won a price once upon a long time ago. Still one of my favorite pieces, relaxing and elating at the same time.
What do you love at the moment?
