You often, and rightly so, point out that I’m not much of a “pop of color” sort of girl. For example, in the abstract, I like the idea of yellow, particularly sunny yellow walls which unfortunately we do not have in our house, but that’s another story.

As I was saying, yellow, there is no way under the sun I could wear yellow except perhaps a bag like these featured in French Elle. I could imagine yellow ballerinas and a discreet use of the tone in a scarf perhaps. That’s it for me.
Dabbling in dangerous colors is, as we all know, the beauty of accessories.
Eau What A Difference a Brand Makes
Once again, you are au courant about my — oh, well let’s be frank — obsession with mineral waters both externally and internally.
I am such an expert on the subject that I actually have a preference of one over the other for the two major seasons which I divide like this: spring/summer and fall/winter. In the cool months I like Eau Thermal Avène and yes, I know, I’ve told you this before, but not in this context.
In the hot months I prefer Eau Thermale La Roche-Posay. It’s the difference between a spritz and a mist if you get my drift.
La Roche-Posay is a delightful mist.
Total Body Exfoliation Made Easy
Thanks once again to my wonderful, wonderful friend who does nothing but spoil me — she of the NARS and Essie nail polishes (see Tuesday’s post) — I now have the solution to the once elusive possibility of having a complete body exfoliation experience in my very own shower.
As I’ve told you, I’ve had a couple of “totals” in spas, but trying to sluff one’s back is, as far as I know, impossible. Yes, I fully realize one could ask for assistance from a willing partner for example, but that’s not always the best solution for a myriad of reasons we don’t need to explore here and now.
Back on message: My friend sent me an Exfoliating Hydro Towel which smoothes and polishes the skin and because it is three feet by one foot it reaches every millimetre of the flip side of the body. It’s not too abrasive and not at all an annoyingly namby-pamby waste of time.
You suds it up with your favorite soap or gel and you are now experiencing the next best thing to being in a spa.
