Current Obsession: Bond No.9 "Chinatown"

30 Nov

Quick! Get a pen….if you are looking for a gift for the girl who has everything, or a perfume collector, look no further.

I have fallen in love with this scent. I tried it quite some time ago and never made the actual “investment”. Trust I have wasted years on not taking the plunge. For me, your perfume of choice should evoke some type of emotion. Nostalgia, happiness, etc, you know, those types of things. For me it definitely takes me to a happy place. The packaging is so pretty, something cute and unexpected where ever it may sit in your bedroom. I highly recommend you taking a trip to a Bond No.9 boutique if are in the NYC area, or do a search if you are in the U.K. I have gotten great service at the location at the 72nd and Madison Ave location. All of the perfumes are named after an area or borough of NYC.

The notes include :

Peach blossoms, gardenia, tuberose, patchouli, cardamomHave you ever tried any scents from Bond?

I can appreciate a good chunky sweater.

With temps in the 40’s its time to pull out the big guns. And since we can’t be caught dead in big sweatshirts and all that foolishness, here are some sweaters they are sure to warm your rib cages and my back fat.

These sweaters are by Twinkle, I can’t say enough good things about Twinkle. Although I am pissed I missed her appearance at Rockefeller Center a couple years back, where she did give tips and tricks on knitting. Speaking of which…did you know you can by her yarn and pattern books and make your own?

I have been able to snag a couple of Twinkle sweaters via a sample sale, they retail for $300+ and I copped for $50. If one ever pops up it would be to your advantage to grab a couple.

Here are a few sweaters I dig, however I am awaiting an huge inheritance before I can afford them.

 

 

What are some of your staple pieces for staying warm? I am going on record to say that I will retire in the south, I can’t be 60 living in this cold.
