I know, I know, my outfit looks nothing like cinnamon, but I just have to say that I LOVES me some cinnamon. Funny thing, last summer when my brother and sister in law visited from Ireland, she was telling me about some book she read that described different countries and their perceptions, and the one of the US was that we love our cinnamon. And The Hubs, being from Ireland, is always, "don't put cinnamon in it!!" if I'm making a pie. But I don't listen, and I put it in there anyway, and just don't tell him, and he's all, "This is GOOOOOD." HMMMMPFH.
This weekend - actually on Black Friday - I can't believe I ventured out at 6 p.m. that evening to Target and Bath & Body Works to pick up a few things (not gifts - unbelievably, I am almost finished with my Christmas shopping). Just some schtuff we needed. So I picked up some Vanilla Cinnamon Body Wash and Lotion at Bath & Body:
You can find all kinds of hard-to-find, obscure fragrances at Luckyscent, and the great thing is that you can also order samples of almost any perfume, so you have a chance to try before you buy (which I HAVE to do with perfume). I have loved both Un Crime Exotique, which is spicy, cinnamon, vanilla, star anise yummyness, and Ginestet's Botrytis, which according to the site is a warm blend of honey, candied fruit, quince and white flower.
I'm getting ready to order samples of Kilian's Discovery Collection, which all sound uh-mazing.
Are you a fan of Luckyscent? Are you a fellow perfume whoooore? Share your favey crocketts with me - I'm always on the lookout for new scents. My preference leans towards the foody/gourmand scents - how boutchoooo?
Speaking of fans, I ran into a guy who was apparently a fan of my ensemble at Target over the weekend. I had seen him in the store, and then we were a checkout apart when paying, and he actually finished and waited for me. He started walking out, and then stopped to let me go ahead of him. TOTALLY checked out my butt (how do I know? I could feel it getting hot). "Those are some BADASS boots," he finally said. "Uh, thanks," I said, and laughed nervously.
It has been a while since I've had someone check me out.
