I have decided to do a new series on things that have caught my fancy. I guess in a way I want to be reminded of things that make my heart skip a beat or at least make me smile. I'm currently reading "Cold Tangerines" by Shauna Niequist and this series is somewhat my take on an "appeal for a celebration."
So here it goes...
I recently bought a bottle of Acca Kappa. Hon-some introduced me to it. I have never taken a liking for perfumes. I have always preferred colognes because I like smelling bagong ligo (newly-bathed) more than smelling like flowers with woody undertones. Before buying this, I have been using Baby Bench colognes which smell lovely. I love Acca Kappa, though. I love how the smell mesmerizes and lingers.
My brother recently celebrated his birthday and he treated us to big, big, big burgers at Charlie's Grind and Grill. I enjoyed their Chili Cheese Fries. Thick wedges of crispy-on-the-outside-soft-and-crumbly-on-the-inside potatoes were smothered - literally smothered - with tasty cheese sauce and spicy chili. Got the photo here.
I have just finished reading "One Day" by David Nicholls and I absolutely love it! I looooooooooove it! I don't usually go for romantic novels but this one is right on the mark. The feeling you get after reading it, I tell you, it stays on. For days. Literally. It's a definite must-read.
I hope the movie version will be just as good. I've liked Jim Sturgess since "Across the Universe."
I have found this to be true: a swipe of red lipstick on a bare face can make you look instantly made up. On weekends when I have to go out and I'm too lazy to put on makeup, I put red lipstick on and it makes all the difference. I'm especially happy because I have been looking for the perfect shade of red for the longest time and I've finally found my perfect rouge tube: Revlon in Crimson.
My wedding ring. Ines de la Fressange of Parisian Chic (another must-read for those interested in French dressing) said it right when she said the only accessory a woman needs to wear is her wedding ring. That alone makes one tres chic!
So that's it for my first series! Hope you enjoyed it, lovelies! Till next time!
