Hello Lovelies, Portia from Australian Perfume Junkies with a new fragrance by an Australian company, Grandiflora. This is a tragedy and good luck story in one. One of Sydney’s most beautiful and prestigious florists, Saskia Havekes, decided to do a fragrance for her shop. Not wanting anything less than wonderful, The rest, please…
…you Posse! Sooo much fun reading your comments and choices from the Beautyhabit post. El O and my wallet don’t thank you, though…you created so damn many lemmings..I went back and looked at my cart: I could open the Hooterville branch, running around dabbing face cream on cows and spritzing rosewater on chickens!
Oooh! speaking of rosewater. I am such a rosewater junkie…..I have an entire shelf in my cabinet devoted to flower essence sprays – eucalyptus and tea tree (feet, obviously – so OW on the face!)….lavender, which keeps me settled down when it’s Clobberin’ Time…but the vast majority are rose distillations. Something about a good rosewater just cheers my poor, tired skin right the heck UP! So…Beautyhabit is now carrying the Alteya line of Bulgarian Rose essence products. Remember my pop’s line about not knowing whether to defecate or lose his ability to see? Yeah, that. Anyhoo, the icing on the cake is the discount code (don’t forget – it’s POSSE and it’s still good through 31May2014). FREE SHIPPING!
So, this isn’t a review. I haven’t tried the line yet. But as soon as I do……
I’m scrabbling through my rackety mind to see what else….oh, yes…..WINNERS! (heh. rackety mind)
Bruno spun the random.org dial and….
epic woman! zazie! sharon c! nemo!
send me your info (anita AT perfumeposse DAWT cahm) and I’ll get it to the Beautyhabit beauties. These are eGift certificates so all I need is your email address (please put it in the body of the email). I’ll gather all four and get them over there asap.
Sorry for the short, rambly post. I have to get my business and household ready for my absence. I am off to Dallas for my father’s military honors service. My father (whom, as some of you know, was profiled in Tom Brokaw’s book The Greatest Generation) was insanely proud of his WWII service – in many ways, in his later life it came to define him. Plus, he was a Media Hog. Got a camera? My dad always knew where it was pointed and made sure to get his grinning self in that shot! The service is being covered by a PA newspaper; I like to think my father is tickled blue to be in the spotlight, again! Like Audrey Hepburn. Gawsh….can they please leave that woman in peace? Please? Have you seen the new Dove chocolate ad? I’m usually pretty easygoing about these things but this one skeeves me right out. Creepiest thing I’ve seen in ages!!!. Funny, about the ‘prep’ thing. I know there are guys out there who plan and organize before they leave..but El O Ain’t That Guy. He’ll throw 5 socks and a banana in a bag, hop on his bike and it’s vaya con Dios, baby! Me? I’ve spent the last 2 days with customers, shippers, the vet (they are going to check in on Bruno while I’m gone – see what I mean? Can you imagine El O setting that up? Neither can I)…….
…anyway, with all the ‘prep’, the one thing I am not going to do is clean the house before I leave. Do you know how many times I’ve done that? And why! Whyyyy? I could leave for Just One Day – and come back to a Hazmat site. Next life? I’m coming back as a guy. Or Bulgarian Rosewater. Or 5 socks and a banana.
