Scent of the Day

Today I am going for a favorite layering of mine Chanel 5 Sensual Elixir and L de Lolita Lempicka. It is bizarrely wickedly wonderful.

Trader Joe's is coming to Livermore!

Living in Livermore, can basically be like living in a small town, ironically we are a city actually, and have quite a large layout. Yet, some how we contain the atmosphere of a small town (sometimes good, other times aggravating). For years we have fought to bring in a Trader Joe's (I know I would be so much cooler to say we fought to have an organic co-op, this is a close as we are going to get to that considering at one point Livermore contemplated putting in a Super Walmart even though we already have a Walmart and they would have been scarily near each other). So much to my excitement Trader Joe's in Livermore will be opening today, I will no longer have to go to Pleasanton and deal with death wielding black hole that they call a parking lot. In truth this is scarily going to be one of the high points of the day. And I will be one of those dorks there today.

Scent of the Evening...Yearning for the Tropics

After taking a wonderfully luxuriante and tropically inspired bath ( BBW Ylang-ylang Myrrh bubble bath, a combination burning of Illume Gardenia and Coconut Milk Mango candles, and well my beloved Pre de Provence Pineapple soap, and earlier eating Saffron Ice cream) I am now trying for a tropical combo of Patou's Sira des Indes and Serge Luten's Datura Noir. It's nice finally having a nice relaxing bath on Spring break ( I had been promising myself for quite awhile). Trying to transport myself to a tropical paradise through scent.

Scent of the Day so far....

I'm going to work with a few dabs of Marc Jacobs from a mini.

The notes are:
Gardenia, wild muguet, skin musk, ginger, cedar.

I think the mens scent by Marc Jacobs is way better.

Gone so long and so happy to be back.

It feels like I have been gone forever, major reason for not posting: the crazy google blogger switch over, but which I have finally gained some power over. So much has happened in the last few months it is crazy, but here are a few tidbits:

On the food front:
-I finally started to work with yeast, and it was a bit of journey. First two times I used to dry active yeast I killed it accidentally with too hot of water.
-Trying Lobio for the first time (I got my excellent recipe from
-Making my first double layer cake (Nigella's Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake); I kept on wanting to call it my "piece de resistance" (sp?)

Perfume Front:
-I am a candle addict!
-I think the reality is my signature scent is Egyptian Musk.

Tea Front:
-I finally finished a box of tea (my Assam Golden Tip) and I am very close to finishing others.

Body Front:
- I finally lost enough weight to fit into my "tiny" pants again, woo hoo!

And above all school and work will always kick your ass when it comes down to energy!
