Has the week been long for you? It seems it has been extra long for me. We are still in contractor Hades and although we are finally moving along it seems as though November is flying by. Where did it go? Did you see that registration is up for the 2014 Paris Beauty Tour? I can’t wait to return to one of my favorite cities, introduce lovely ladies to all Paris has to offer and fun beauty treasures.
I always have a few things that get me through the week and these are at the top of the list.
- The Read Podcast with Kid Fury and Crissle. I stumbled upon this podcast a month ago and in two days listened to every single episode. I absolutely love them. I told everyone how funny these two are and how much I look forward to their podcast each week. I also love that they are both from the South – Kid Fury from Florida and Crissle from Oklahoma. When I hear Crissle’s Southern twang it makes me so happy. I never apologize for my Texas and Louisiana roots and neither does she. I also love that they love Beyonce as much as I do. If you need a pick me up each week, download The Read and prepare to laugh your butt off. Their pop culture commentary is on point. I hate I missed them this week in DC and promise myself I will be at the next one. I keep saying I’m going to send in my own read, but I need to find the time to write it all down. Let the laughter ensue.
- mySerenity Incense by My Insens. I discovered this incense at my yoga studio. One of the teachers is an ambassador and I can’t get enough. It’s calming and gives my inner hippie such joy. I tend to burn this a lot along with candles when le husband is not home. It’s a perfect scent situation in my office or when I practice yoga at home.
- Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon. A few weekends ago we took a getaway to Middleburg, VA to explore. I discovered this cab at the bar in Salamander Resort and have been hooked every since. After sleuthing I discovered one of my local wine stores carries it. If I’m going to be cold, I’m warming up with this.
- Acqua di Parma Oud. Did you actually think I was going to have a beauty item? This piece of lusciousness is really for the boys. My good friend Sydelle at Neiman’s introduced me to. Yes, it’s a men’s fragrance. I’m on an Oud kicked, but paired with Jo Malone’s Velvet Rose or Hermès 24 Faubourg it is just right for us ladies. This is another winter necessity. A new scent to give me a new attitude like Patti LaBelle.
