This is Buckethead, who I figure deserves equal time on the blog.Buckethead is a nester.When he´s sad, or sick, or otherwise feeling low, he collects all the soft blankety things (coats etc.) in the vicinity and piles them up on a chair or sofa.Then he goes to sleep on them.In this photo, he is asleep on top of: a) Diva´s blue fleece bathrobe; b) Enigma´s velour Washington Redskins throw; and some pillows.On top of him is his beloved, disintegrating security blanket.
Meanwhile I was watching Beverly Hills Cop (what a great movie) which reminded me: who´s coming to ScentBar to play with us on the 14th of March?10 a.m.?Franco needs a count so he knows how much stuff to buy.Attendance is free!You have three ways to rsvp:contact Violetnoir on MUA; contact the Perfume Posse group on Facebook (some of you have already done this, I´ll email you to confirm); or Contact Us on the blog is my last choice as it then has to be sorted and forwarded.I am so excited about this trip.By the way, according to Beverly Hills Cop, if I want to be chic in LA I need either a three-piece suit (male attire) or a blond spiral perm and a denim jumpsuit.Which is just that much funnier given that one of this month´s fashion rags (Vogue?) is full of similar jumpsuits, a look I never thought we´d see again.I´m not buying the hammer pants either.
So.That´s it. I am completely punting this post today perfume-review-wise.Instead I am asking a question:have your perfume-buying habits changed at all in the current economic meltdown?If that question is too depressing to ponder, answer this one: is there a particular fragrance or makeup item you are coveting for now or this spring?I am lusting heartily for this entire Barielle nail polish collection (okay, maybe not the yellow) and I also want something from Shiseido´s new Dick Page lipstick collection, as well as the drop-dead gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana lipstick in Dahlia, although these are deliberately, heavily scented and I am not sure how I feel about that.Also, I´m on a spring crà¨me nail polish jag – I just got China Glaze Secret Peri-winkle and Agent Lavender (squeee! so perfectly pale!) as well as Color Club Blue Light, another gorgeous pale blue.Misa Jasmine is a lovely medium violet, but CG Shower Together was darker than I expected.I´m thinking I need For Audrey, even if it is a little warmer blue than the Tiffany box (and it is.)Any other pale blue, gray or green crà¨me recs for us cool-toned gals?Also, I´m as afraid of pink polish as I am of rose perfume, and do I need to get over myself?I feel like most pink polishes just magnify the pink tones in my skin, which is why I don´t wear pink clothes either.Is there a really flattering pink crà¨me that doesn´t look … I dunno … too Barbie or too dull?
