Happy Monday, happy Labor Day!!

Labor Day memorial holiday 2
Happy Monday, everyone, and if you’re in the U.S., happy Labor Day to you! Since it’s a holiday here and many folks are in and out, traveling, etc., let’s keep it short and sweet. So please share: What are your plans for today, and what are you wearing?

What’s your choice to wear to a family cookout, to that picnic in the park, or to a friend’s pool party? Or around the firepit or fireplace, for those of you who might be a bit chilly in the Southern Hemisphere?

This Labor Day finds me coming back from the beach with my teenager, stopping by to visit my 95-year-old mother-in-law (going downhill significantly so good thoughts and prayers for her would be very welcome, if you would be so kind), and getting various odds and ends done before the work-week starts up again.

Haven’t been wearing too much scent lately, just a spritz of Tom Ford’s Soleil Blanc for a dinner out at the beach and playing a little over the weekend with Aerin Lauder’s Hibiscus Palm. I like it, but still can’t decide if it’s FB-worthy. Or in my case, rollerball-worthy, as I’d never be able to use up a spray bottle.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Labor Day/Monday and a great week!

    I have nothing to offer except thoughts and prayers for your mother inlaw. My mother is 97 and know the feeling how things can change so quickly.

    Thoughts and prayers for your mom-in-law, Ann! We have no particular plans except to work in the garden a while–tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants overflowing! It is hot and humid here, and I am getting over a cold, so I can’t really smell much. Looking forward to cooler weather whenever it comes… I made a vat of arugula/basil pesto with toasted walnuts yesterday. Best wishes to all! XO

    Wishing you and your family comfort. <3 to your MIL. I woke up this morning thinking about contemporary Ubar – then I read the forecast: mid-90s with rain. So I'm going with Tribute Attar. Because I Can. 😉 Going to celebrate Labor Day by laboring herein – we're in reno and the house is a mess – can't stand it another nanosecond. So I see vacuuming and mopping, etc etc in my future.


  • This weekend hiking in the mountains in Colorado, it’s been Tauer Les Annes 25. I’m taking my pup to a dog pool party later today and will wear Indult Tihota today. Positive thoughts to you and your mother-in-law.

    Hugs and white light to you and your family — sorry to hear about your mother’s declining health.

    This weekend I’ve been wearing vintage Dioressence and Le Parfum d’Therese.

    Hey Ann,
    Not Labor day here in Oz so I’m going to clean this house and write my Trivia Q&A.
    All done while reeking of some vintage Coco by CHANEL!
