and a new season starts July 12!
Oh, how I long for the dulcet tones of Tim Gunn, “Make it work,” “come on, people” and “Hmmm,” along with the finger on the lips and the furrowed brow. This cast is looking a little too attractive. You don’t suppose that this season may be more about what looks good on tv than on the odd characters with true genius intereacting with the lovable Tim Gunn every day? I hope not. It was so fun to hate the characters like Santino and marvel at how Marla got on the show.
And Heidi Klum and Seal are expecting another baby! Such a cute couple.
What I found in my fragrance closet — Boucheron Jaipur Saphir. A floral amber introduced in 1999, it has notes of peach, cardamom, tangerine, yuzu, magnolia, stephanotis, jasmine, heliotrope, karmir wood, amber, sandalwood, cinnamon wood, resin and vanilla.
I got this one shortly after it came out and instantly fell in love, forsook all my other perfumes and cleaved only to this for about a month. My sister smelled it and had the same reaction. Putting it on again, after I had not worn it in so long, I remember why I fell in love with it. It had a great beginning, sweet fruit and flowers just tumbling out of the bottle, but the drydown to the woody base is just lovely. It still remains one of my favorites, though in my head I think I thought it was better than it actually is? Maybe my nose is changing or this bottle is ancient and lots a couple of notes.
Best and one of the most expensive pre-tan lotions is California Tan CT7. Put this on before you head outdoors, spend 10 minutes in the rays, and it really does help move along your tan and keeps your skin soft and moisturized. Now, I know I shouldn’t, but I skip the SPF since I only go out for my 10 minutes every other day. Yes, you can yell at me now, briefly, but only for three words, like “you idiot” or something. The CT7 also smells unbelievably wonderful, I want someone to bottle that as a perfume. You can get it from the California Tan website for the outrageous price of $90 or at the place (and others, just google it) I linked above for $44 or so. Available in plain or in bronzing accelerator. Is it worth it? Yeah, I think so. It does work, and it puts a ton of vitamans and conditioners back in the skin. Did I mention the smell?
