Slim Paley Photo…………….The Wisteria on my kitchen window yesterday
Oh my goodness. It’s Friday again.
Naughty naughty Slim stayed down in The Big City so late. I will pay for it tomorrow as I write feverishly into the night now for all my loyal Slimsters! I went to two birthday celebrations, both chock a block full of beautiful women who were dressed so chicly, I wanted to nik everything-their bags, their shoes, their jewelry, heck, even their food (they were hardly eating it anyway!) And one of those insanely delicious Sweet Lady Jane buttercream filled cakes with fresh raspberries was served. Happiness!
So Spring has indeed sprung here in Southern California. The fruit trees are in full flower with the promise of delicious bounty. The artichokes are going insane and the lazy wisteria who can’t hold their heads up are lollygagging about saying don’t cut me and take me in because I won’t last more than 3 hours, so best just leave me here, in my upside down world…
My Brazillian Hair Straightening treatment is finally starting to relax which means good -bye Flat Head, Hello Long Lost Frizz Head. It’s hard being a girl. However this time I have something at the ready and I like it and I”m recommending it; Bumble & Bumble #3 Dehydration Therapy Treament. Use a quarter sized amount daily into towel dried hair and lo….your hair feels normal, controlled but not greasy or silicony in any way. It has a very light pleasant scent- really nice. It’s my new Favourite
Don’t you just love when someone comes up with a new way to smell beautiful?
The Perfumed Bracelet
“With a wink to the origins of the craft, when the perfumer was also a glove maker. The glove becomes a leather bracelet.”
The bracelet, permeated with the perfume of your choice, wraps twice around your wrist and fastens with a sterling silver monogrammed and magnetized clasp. This way, you carry a subtle and stylish scent with you all day- Such a cool idea, n’est-ce pas?
Paper incense. Fantastic for travel.

My long, fun-filled day spent in Los Angeles lingers hauntingly on my skin as I sit here, tap tap tapping away, deep into the night, still reveling in the gorgeous scent of APOM (A Piece of Me) a new scent created by master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian. In my weary state, I will not attempt to describe this seriously gorgeous combination of orange flower and cedar wood any further than to say it’s a beautiful blending of old world powdery intrigue with a sexy, contemporary edge. Love it.
In addition to the perfumes, leather bracelets, and incense papers, the collection also includes scented bubbles, as in blowing bubbles, in Pear, Mint and Grass, scented laundry detergent for dark and light clothing and fabric softener. Although at $45 a bottle, I don’t think you would want to be leaving it around when your sons are doing laundry. Laundry…sons…joke, get it??

Don’t read this, friend who had these on today.
How did I discover the perfume ? By coveting these adorable JBrand “Houlihan” low rise cargos that my friend had on at lunch today and rushing right over to Neiman’s to copy her.
Now we can all be copy cats.

Meanwhile, I know this is a yucky picture (although, hello yellow!) but over at Target they have these pretty cute stretch denim leggings with an orange stitch side seam like regular jeans for only $12.99. PS. They run really small.
Have you tried this water yet?? At first I didn’t like it, but I gave it another chance only this time, very cold, and it grew on me. I’m not saying it’s my favourite, but it’s sort of like drinking really good mouthwash after eating chocolate. I don’t think it has any calories either.
This candle is so decadent, it smells as if you have just fallen face down into a huge pot of hot buttery brioche with a hint of caramel. The first is just a lovely, delicate, princess of the world rose scent. Lovelieness
These are My two favourite scents in Laduree candles
Available at Bergdorf Goodman
Happy Friday Friends!!
