Old Habits Die Hard

Yes I admit, I have been painfully remiss in my blogging as of late. 
In my defense, I have been freelancing for peanuts and making killer sales at the Crew in the meantime. See? Not completely lazy with my time!

I have also gotten a head start on my christmas shopping. How many people can say that? Yes, at the rate I'm going I should be done with Christmas gifts with plenty of time to hide them, lose them, have to buy new ones, and find them again in time for next Christmas. Do I know me or do I know me?!?

I, of perfume addicts anonymous, recently discovered a bargain version of my latest olfactory delight, Flowerbomb by Victor & Rolf. Anyone who hasn't had a whiff of this creamy floral needs to run to their nearest Nordstrom and partake in my love for this delicious albeit incredibly expensive fragrance. Must. Own.

D. are you taking notes?? This is on my christmas list and not the first time I've mentioned it....

Anywho, a customer I was helping at the Crew
 smelled absolutely fan-freaking-tastic and, being the top notch perfume detector that I am, guessed that she was wearing F.B. Imagine my shock when she said no, that it was Bath and Body Works' latest fall scent Black Amethyst. 
Will I accept this as a short-term substitute for my beloved F.B until Christmas? Sure. It smells similar enough although its top note is a bit muted in comparison to F.B and knowing B&BW other fragrances, will probably wear off by the end of the day unless layered with lotion. Oh, well. Any other F.B lovers, go check it out, and maybe save your bank account the $95 heft of F.B.


*Happy Birthday Brother-In-Law P.W!*
