The Majestic Savannah Tabby

Published in: Daily Photo

I am not kidding here. Half the pics on my computer are of my left arm (my swatch arm), and the other half are pics of Tabs.

I never get tired of looking at that face! :) I think he looks extra leonine today.

You’re Just Purrfect!

Crazy Cat Lady Card

I know it probably isn’t your birthday today, but maybe it is. Everyone has a birthday, after all. And sooner or later you’ll have one too, and when you do, this card is for you (it’s also available online at for $3.95). :)

That site is actually a goldmine of CCL-themed items.

How about this mug for the resident cat lady in your life? It’s never too early to start planning for the holidays…

The Illamasqua Fatale Palette Is a Fall Fatale of Purply, Brownish Taupe Terrific-Ness

Illamasqua Fatale Palette

I’ve been hesitant to embrace Illamasqua’s Fatale Palette while it was in the upper 80s and 90s here, but now that Labor Day is behind us, and it’s been a bit cooler outside, the shimmery bronze, berry, violet and purplish, brownish taupe (OMG, LOVE), are starting to feel right.

With Sephora no longer carrying the line, Illamasqua hasn’t been that easy to find here in the US these days, but the $55 Fatale palette is still available online at, and at select Bloomingdales, Hudson’s Bay and Kryolan stores.

I’m tellin’ ya — that purply brown taupe will haunt your dreams! :)

Feed Parched Paws Rhubarb & Roses: Molton Brown London Rhubarb & Rose Replenishing Hand Cream

Published in: Daily Photo

Molton Brown London Rhubarb & Rose Replenishing Hand Cream

Surprise! — Molton Brown London’s Rhubarb & Rose Replenishing Hand Cream ($15) smells neither like roses nor rhubarb, even though it does contain the extracts of both botanicals.

That said, I wouldn’t have been surprised if the brand had attempted said wacky scent combo and managed to pull it off. They are, after all, the gang behind Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod, which seemed to me like it would smell, I dunno, funky and spicy, but somehow — don’t ask me how — it totally worked.

To my basset hound-like sense of smell, Rhubarb & Rose hand cream evokes fancy fizzy citrus cocktails. It has notes of yuzu (a citrus fruit originally from East Asia), grapefruit and mandarin. My schnoz also picks up a hint of sweet champagne. The concoction is very crisp and invigorating.

Quite the pick-me-up when I wear it.

The moisturizing cream also doesn’t coat my claws with an annoying sticky or greasy film, and it’s always quick to absorb.

Plus, it doesn’t hurt that the pink tube is cute. :)

There’s even a matching hand wash which, not gonna lie, I’m kind of obsessed with.

“Why?” you may ask.

Well…because it comes with a pink bow.

I’m a hand cream junkie (I always, ALWAYS, have one in my purse, and another one on my desk) and this one is my current crush. A 1.4-oz. tube of Rhubarb & Rose Replenishing Hand Cream will set you back $15, and you can find it now at Neiman Marcus stores and online.

Nest at WP24: The Food Made Me Happy and Full, and I Drooled

Steamed Assorted Dim Sum

Mmm… Tempura green beans.

What a treat. Last weekend in Los Angeles I met a friend for noms at a place called Nest at WP24. It’s a Wolfgang Puck restaurant serving Asian fusion cuisine. Kinda pricey, but not ridiculously so, and very casual attire.

We shared some appetizers, and they were all super good (here’s the menu), and at the end of the meal I felt decidedly happy and full, which is basically the kind of food critic I’d be. I’d say things like, “The food made me happy and full, and I drooled, so I give it four stars.” :)

If you’re ever down there in the LA area and looking for a good place to eat, you could do a lot worse. I’m just saying. Try to grab a table facing the windows, and time it just before sunset. You’ll get some gorgeous views of downtown LA.
