Oh. My. Gosh!

Do you ever start watching a movie that you think is going to go in one direction, and you think you’re gonna like it, but then it detours in a completely uncool way and you end up barking and growling at the screen?

Yeah, that has been my Netflix existence over the past week… This girl is desperately seeking movie recs if you have any.

In other news, happy caturday! It’s 2015 and I still can’t believe it. It’s also absolutely, positively freaking cold here in Northern California today. I mean, I admit that I’m a California weather wuss, but it’s 34 degrees outside! I don’t know if my poor citrus tree is going to make it. I think it needs a cute Chanel jacket. :)

Good luck in the giveaway this weekend. Your nephew says “meow!”

Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy caturday! :) My phone has been blowing up with texts from your nephew at MBB headquarters. Apparently his temporary live-in assistant forgot to prepare the gravy last night, which of course led to a HUGE fight.

If there’s one thing Tabs will not accept from his employees, it’s a failure to adhere to the company’s strict gravy preparation standards. He’ll forgive minor, infrequent violations of the dress code, but gravy incompetence is simply unacceptable.

In other news…it’s been chilly up here in Redding, but at least we have sun. I hope you’ve been having a great week. Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway, and oh! — there are actually THREE other ongoing giveaways you could also enter while you’re here…

Hmm… That space beneath the tree is looking sadly empty now that Christmas is officially over.

We should totes fix that.

One of my favorite holiday collections this year has been Sonia Kashuk’s ( review right here). She did this luxurious gold and black Chanel-esque art deco theme, and the makeup was to die for, of course.

Comment to Win $152 in Fragrances From i smell great

Comment to win $152 in fragrances from i smell great! DEADLINE TO ENTER: Dec. 31, 2014.

***The giveaway is officially closed.*** CONGRATULATIONS, CHELSEA! You’re the lucky girl! I received your email response, so keep your eyes (and nose) peeled over the next few days for your fragrant prize. :)

The following post is sponsored by i smell great. From the creator of CLEAN perfume, the scents you love, extracted, encapsulated, bottled. Isn’t that great? Learn more at ismellgreat.com.

It’s been about a month and a half since I aromatically introduced myself to i smell great, and I’m still crushing hard.

The new line of easy-to-wear, mix-and-matchable scented lotions, potions and hair products is gentle enough to WANT to wear every day, and I like all four fragrances — Beach Babe, Candy Crush, Angel Cake and Wild Honey — none of which are so strong that they overpower everything when you walk into a room (in other words, nothing like the smell of popcorn).

And I’m still having fun with the idea of layering the different fragrances together, which come in different hair and body products, to create unique combos.

The layering/mixing/matching idea is their special power, along with being hella long-lasting, and I have yet to create a combo I haven’t liked. Individually, they’re all very light and gentle.

i smell great: the four fragrances

  • beach babe: Ah, take me away to a land of tropical breezes, coconut cream and golden suntan oil…
  • candy crush: Mouthwatering candied flower petals, rose syrup, icing sugar and candy hearts to tempt and tease you.
  • angel cake: A comfy, cozy scent with notes of pink icing, powdered sugar and candied almonds…with a touch of sweetness.
  • wild honey: A soothing synthesis of honey, brown sugar, Tahitian vanilla and sweet nectar make this intoxicating aroma irresistible.

The Soft Body Whip in Candy Crush + Wellness Water Mist in Angel Cake combo is currently nominated for ride-or-die status in my house.

There’s a corner of one shelf in my bathroom cabinet reserved for my favorite body lotions and body products, and i smell great stuff is all up in the mix.
