I do have some perfumes that I could be reviewing but I decided that I really wanted to drench myself in something that I haven’t worn in a while: Serge Lutens Un Bois Sepia. It doesn’t get much love out there in the blogosphere, but I think it is just lovely. I may wear it all weekend and save the new one for New Years, since it’s so boozy I’d hesitate to try to get through a DUI checkpoint wearing it.
Christmas in Los Angeles can seem kind of un-Christmassy for people who grew up in places where it might be a white one, or even a white-out. The most we get is rain, but I am not going to complain that I can enjoy the lights strung up on city streets and local houses with the top down and maybe a scarf.
My holiday plans? I am going to spend a blissful Sunday it’s to be hoped not talking to anyone other than to order food. I have a stack of movies, a plan to go downtown and get an order (or three) of Yang Chow’s famous Slippery Shrimp, change into my flannel jammies and eat myself into a coma. I had been invited out to a couple things, but the thing about being in a job that is for the most part customer service the idea that I don’t have to for an entire 24 hour period seems like bliss.
Of course I will have to hit whatever market is open in the AM and stock up on any conceivable food I might need and still hope that Pizza Man delivers, just in case.
So what are your plans for the holidays? Family and friends and cooking? Off to the movies and eating out? Hot chocolate by the fire with a loved one (human or animal)? Most importantly what will you wear, scent-wise? Let us know in the comments, and have a wonderful, safe and (ful)filling holiday!
