SOTD: Diorissimo

Today is May 1st, so you know what that means, bring out the lily of the valley scents aka muguet. I keep around a sample of Dior's Diorissimo just for this occasion, because as I mentioned it before I not a big lily of the valley wearer because it is a scent of my tween years. On a plus side the boyfriend really liked it; he is a very floral guy.

On to deliciousness, last night we made steak Diane with garlic mash potatoes and a simple green salad, and this is where you will laugh, topped off with the kitschy of desserts, rice crispie treats. But I didn't feel too guilty considering steak Diane was created in the 1950's. It was all delicious. The recipes I used can be found here:
For Steak Diane:
For Garlic Mashed Potatoes
These recipes are really easy and really good.

Ended the night by beginning to watch the series Damages, watched the first two episodes, and we are hooked.

New favorite magazine: Mental Floss.

Mental Floss is fun, isn't it?

Dinner sounds delicious. I only occasionally have fandom for LOTV scents myself. As a result, I am armed for a long time with my FB bottle of Diorissimo and as yet unopened Coty Muguet (which may or may not be okay).
