Here is what I am loving lately.
Donna Karan Gold perfume, which I asked for for Christmas and did not get. So I did what any reasonable woman would do. I bought it for myself at Sephora in Las Vegas when no one was looking. It reminds me of the Laura Ashley No. 1 I used to wear as a teenager. (Sally kindly pointed out to me that I could still buy half a bottle on eBay. For like $150. Uh, I am just not that rich, plus it would bug me to have a used toiletry item.) This new perfume is still sweet and floral but a little more mature. I am walking around smelling myself all day and loving it.
Sephora. Holy cool. Because you know what I hate about buying makeup and stuff from department stores? Salespeople. Sorry, but they just make me freak out and run away. But at Sephora it is seriously as easy as buying drugstore makeup. The difference is that the products are actually nice.
Airborne or the generic version thereof. I was a Zicam fan before. And that works. But I got some generic Airborne type stuff for really cheap at BigLots. And I started taking it when I started feeling icky. It tastes okay, no chalky zinc tablet to chew, since you dissolve it in water like Alka Seltzer. And I am FINE! Two days later, no trace of the ominous ickies! That is something to shout about, so forgive my prodigious use of exclamation points! Thanks to this stuff I can actually smell my yummy new perfume!
Old-fashioned oatmeal. I think I have finally burned myself out on Kashi GoLean Crunch after eating it almost every day for ... oh, 5 years or something like that. What I am doing now is throwing a handful of oats in the microwave with skim milk for six minutes while I toddle outside to get the newspaper, then stirring in fruit or raisins along with about a teaspoon of chopped nuts. It is a yummy yummy breakfast and I think I am cutting back on the sugar. My mother is probably now in shock, as I railed against oatmeal for most of my childhood. I have learned the error of my ways! (By the way, mom, I now also eat tuna and eggplant. And like them. But you probably knew that.)
Flashkit.com. This is where I am getting free audio loops for the podcast I produce at work. They are not half bad. I still wish for some original stuff. Musicians? Email me.
That's all. It was a short list but a good list.
