Beauty Confessions: Sometimes I Pick My Perfume by Color…

Published in: Daily Photo

Sometimes on Sunday nights I gather up a bunch of perfume bottles based on color, set them all on my bathroom shelf, and then I wear a different one each day of the week.

This week was all about blue…

  • Cartier Declaration L’Eau Eau de Toilette: Technically, it’s a men’s fragrance, but I dig it, so why the heck not? Spicy woods, cedar accords, pink peppercorn and grapefruit. $93.
  • Clean Fresh Laundry: When I can’t be bothered to take a real shower (it happens), I like crisp, fresh scents like this. Brazilian orange, Mexican lime, fresh mown (mowed?) grass, cyclamen, rose otto, night blooming white jasmine petals, heliotrope and musk. $38.
  • Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Dreaming in Portofino Eau de Toilette: This was a limited edition Light Blue flanker from 2012 that I like to wear in the summer. Citrus accord, pink pepper, geranium, amber and patchouli. $50.
  • Dolce & Gabba Le Bateleur No 1: A limited edition unisex fragrance from 2009′s D&G Anthology that I “borrowed” (permanently, also known as “stole”) from El Hub. :) Unfortunately, it’s hard to find now. Notes of juniper berries, cardamom, birch, water, coriander, olivanum (frankincense), cedar and vetiver. $69.
  • MAC Turquatic: An oldie but a goody! The bottle shown here is the old-school version. It has flashier packaging now (I prefer this older style, though). Anemone (say that five times fast, LOL!), lotus, orris and cedar. $30.
  • L’Occitane Mer & Mistral: Another refreshing aquatic scent. This one works for gals and guys. Pine, cypress and rosemary. $75.
  • Issey Miyake L’Eau D’Issey Summer: This one is a little sweet for my taste, but I wear it because I love the beachy bottle (um, is that cray?). Lychee, vanilla, lotus, cyclamen, freesia, carnation, white lily, amberseed and musk. $74.

Who Wore It Better? — The Kristin Perry Audrey Necklace

“B*tch stole my look.”

–Tabs the Cat

Behold! — the Kristin Perry Audrey Necklace.

If I actually win this poll, I would not be surprised to see pigs flying outside my window, because really, you don’t go head to head with a cat wearing bling and actually expect to come out on top.

There’s just no way… :)

Cameow Socks by Sock It To Me (2)

If, while happily hopping along one day, you happen upon a pair of pink knee-high socks with mustachioed kitties wearing berets and bow ties, clearly, the right thing to do — the ONLY thing to do — is to buy them.

There is simply no other option.

I mean, unless you want to lose your Crazy Cat Lady License, and I don’t think you want that. :)

The socks! Guess where I found them.

Yup, at a sock store in Tahoe. A store completely dedicated to socks.

There were socks everywhere! From floor to ceiling.

But you don’t have to go to Lake Tahoe to find this pair of cleverly named Cameows (Get it? Like cameo? LOL!) because it’s also available online at Price: about 15 cans of gravy (that’s $12 a pair).

Lychee or Dragon Eggs? Hard To Tell…

Published in: Daily Photo

For real though, this site is two, maybe three posts away from being renamed “Makeup and Food Blog,” or “Makeup and All of the Things My Goat-Like Stomach Likes to Consume.”

That second one rolls off the tongue better, methinks…

Today, it’s lychee. :) I picked these up from Trader Joe’s yesterday.

If you haven’t had a lychee before, it’s a sweet pitted fruit with a crusty dragon skin-like outer shell.

The fleshy fruit tastes like a cross between a watermelon and a peach to me. Just peel, plop one in your mouth, and spit out the seed.

I could seriously eat these things all day long…especially when they’re cold.

Have you ever had lychee before? How about lychee shave ice or ice cream?

Kayaking Lake Tahoe’s Emerald Bay

Published in: Daily Photo

Lake Tahoe Kayaking on Emerald Bay

Whatever you do, bring snacks. El Hub and I rented kayaks today on the lake, and I kid you not, we kayaked two hours each way. The reason: to conquer (get to) Lake Tahoe’s only island, Fannette Island.

It’s a small rocky island with an old abandoned castle-like structure at the very top.

It was a very fun, physically challenging day. My arms are still burning, and the only thing that will heal them is pizza. :)

I’d never spent this much time on the lake before, and it really is shockingly blue and beautiful. It’s as blue and clear as a tropical ocean.

Here are just some pics I snapped along the way…
