I am staunch!

"But you see in dealing with me, the relatives didn't know that they were dealing with a staunch character and I tell you if there's anything worse than dealing with a staunch woman... S-T-A-U-N-C-H. There's nothing worse, I'm telling you. They don't weaken, no matter what."
~Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale

(Apparently I had a one too many cocktails, and did my Little Edie impression at the family Christmas gathering. Good thing Hubby captured it on film.......or not.)

If you haven't seen Grey Gardens, I highly recommend you do, dahling! And do see the newer HBO version, as well.

It was a very Barry Christmas, y'all.

More, More, More!!!

Sex and the City Author Candace Bushnell is giving us more, more, more Carrie Bradshaw!!! I am so excited about the new book, The Carrie Diaries, coming out in April. The book gives us a view of Carrie before SATC times.

Even though it's considered a YA book, I'll take more Carrie any way I can get it!!!

Winter Fragrances

Two fragrances caught my fancy this fall, Couture Couture by Juicy Couture and Natori by Josie Natori.

I have to say the Couture Couture is my favorite of the two. It's more wearable for daytime. It has a yummy scent--you can definitely smell the grape in there, but it's not Kool-Aid-ish. It warms up nicely, but I wish there was more staying power.

The Natori is definitely more of a nighttime scent. Mysterious, mature and rich. Pleased with this since I got it for half retail price. Might not be so happy if I'd paid full price :/ .

I am itching to try *another* cool weather fragrance. I have heard many people rave about the new Bath & Body Works Twilight Woods fragrance, including one of my favorite bloggers Nouveau Cheap, that I must check it out! And since B&BW is always running some sort of deal, I know I can get it for a bargain!!!
