I’d like to talk about perfume today, but I can’t. I’m way too distracted with yet another winter storm overnight, snow-packed roads tomorrow, sub-zero temperatures.
Yes, it’s not even Valentine’s Day, but I”m over winter completely. Tomorrow will hit 6, with 8 inches of snow. Now, I know that may not sound like much, but for Colorado it’s annoying. We usually get almost no snow from December to the first of March, have 50s and 60s, lots of sunshine, and all that pesky snow stays in the moutains while we run around coatless here in Denver. Then in March and often April, it dumps 2-3 feet on us, we all cozy in for 2-3 days until nature’s snowblower, our sun that is with us like 300 plus days of the year, melts it off, and we start enjoying the hyacinth show and budding of trees.
This year we are getting real winter, and it super-sucks. The lack of sun is making me so grumpy.
This whine is completely not warranted, but I wanted to make it anyway, just to give all of you the opportunity to get off your chests in comments how awful your winter has been, which I think almost all of you have had far, far worse. How many days since you’ve seen the sun or the street? Did you ever think you’d get tired of snow days? I have like five pair of black boots, and I”m sick of wearing all of them, and I never thought I’d say that. Usually by now I’ve been wearing my Chacos for a week during a nice warm spell of 2-3 weeks.
And also I wanted to pose a question just as advice on how to do something.
Xerjoff has been super-nice and sent us a big old kit of shooting stars scents and samples of rosewood and irisss and Elle and some others, and I need to figure out how to do the giveaway on them. The big kit is really cute all together. I haven’t opened it, it’s still sealed, but it looks neat. Now, that’s a really big prize to give to ONE person when I could break up all the generous sized samples (I think 5 ml or so?) inside and give one away to each person, but sometimes it’s really cool for one person to win a really cool big prize. What do we think? I have more samples to give away besides that that are carded. One to a person, do some in a set? Do two rounds, and first round gets to pick their sample, then I draw for the rest? So many possibilities, and I want to thank Xerjoff for generously providing these so a few of our commenters can get them for free!!
The four winners of the three-sample set of Cartiers are: Valentine, Occhineri, Kim and Geordan 1244. Just click on the Contact us over on the left, send me your address with a note reminding me what you won, and I’ll get them sent out to you.
