Once in a while, I’ll check out new fragrances — as my pal Gemma says, “life is just too brief for a signature scent; I wish to scent like as many lovely issues as I can” — and so they’re at all times good. However not too long ago I’ve tried one which’s blowing me away. I can’t cease sniffing my wrists, and Alex retains pulling me into kisses within the kitchen. The horny scent? Lake & Skye’s Saffron Nightfall. “Darkish florals, spicy woods and a musky cool” is the outline. Love love love. (You may get an $8 one, too!)
The Instagram account Subway Fingers by Hannah La Follette Ryan is surprisingly shifting, don’t you assume? (This one seems to be like a Michelangelo sculpture.)
I simply tore by means of Laura Chinn’s memoir Zits about her wild childhood in Florida. Her divorced mother and father struggled with poverty and dependancy, her huge brother went blind from a mind tumor, and she or he lived alone and raised herself for months at a time. (She began ingesting and smoking when she was 11.) To prime it off, she had very aggressive pimples. From the jacket copy, I anticipated the ebook to be 100% heart-wrenching — however, whereas some components are clearly devastating, Chinn’s hilarious, hopeful and gritty character shines proper by means of. As she says herself, in the long run, “it isn’t a tragic story.”
Effectively, I’m formally 43 years outdated as a result of guess what I’m into proper now? Placemats. We put them on our eating desk to make the entire room look heat and welcoming. These striped numbers, above, are made in Denmark.
P.S. Extra enjoyable round-ups, and a fragrance scent take a look at.
